Ethnic minorities at the Danish public libraries : A study of two library journals (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this masters thesis is to examine how daily encounters between the Danish public libraries and the library-users called ethnic minorities are described within the public library field. Danish public libraries have been assigned to play a larger role in societys strive towards integration of immigrants and refugees. Within Danish politics I find an emphasis on the importance of maintaining Danish culture, but it is rarely expressed if ethnic minorities are, can or should be a part of it. Theoretical and methodological starting points are hermeneutics and text-analysis. My theoretical framework is research about international migration and ethnic relations IMER. I combine my text-analysis with contextual matters, such as politicians´ statements concerning ethnic minorities 1990-2005. Questions posed in this study are: How are ethnic minorities described in the two largest library journals 2000-2005 in Denmark and what views and ideas can be found? Can these views or ideas be linked to those of the politicians? 38 articles from the two library journals Danmarks Biblioteker and Bibliotekspressen are analysed with the use of IMER-research. The results of my analysis disclose differences in how children, youth and adults are looked upon in the journals. A general impression is that an emphasis on the Danish culture, without defining what it contains, and the description of Muslims as problematic is present in the journals as well as within Danish politics. However, initiatives are taken in the journals towards a discussion about what the national culture can or should contain.
