"Knowledge is the remedy for supposition!" : A pilot study where the use of history in two television programs, Pip-Larssons and En ö i havet, is analysed and is put in relation to the prevalent History curriculum (English)
Abstract [en]

The nineteen nighties were a decade marked by shifting political landscapes, a troublesome economy, and ideological changes. Historiography and the common stance on history also changed due to the above mentioned factors and the end of the Cold War. All of these factors contributed to the fall of Sweden’s state-owned monopoly on television, which in turn changed television viewing habits. History was once again at the forefront of social debates; however, it was at the same time not prioritized within the school’s curriculum Lpo94.

This study aims to investigate the usage of history in two fictional youth series that aired in Sweden during this time; Pip-Larssons (1998) and En Ö I Havet (2003). Furthermore, this study compares the history used in these series to the history that was being taught in the, relatively, new curriculum Lpo94. To accomplish this a qualitative analysis of the two series contents is being used to put the material in relation to Klas-Göran Karlsson’s typology of different uses of history. Of his seven different categories this study focuses on the moral use and the political-pedagogical use of history.

The study found that history was being used in these television programs both from a politically-pedagogically perspective and from the moral perspective.
