I like that he is so superior... just like me! : A qualitative gender study of Kamratposten's series "KP fixar" (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of our study was to examine the representation of girls and boys in journalism directed towards children between 8 and 14 years old. The study was conducted upon 15 articles from the Swedish children’s magazine Kamratposten. We examined how the gender systems reproduce and/or change through Kamratposten’s series “KP fixar”. To be able to analyze this we used a critical discourse analysis as method and we used theories including gender systems, media logic and identification. Our main results of the study showed that the gender systems and gender contracts both were changed and reproduced in “KP fixar”. The changes were shown through the fact that girls and boys were mainly not treated differently from each other based on their sexes, however the reproduction could be seen through the children being described as prominently masculine or feminine based on the performed activity in the articles.
