The globalization process in textbooks : A qualitative content analysis from economic, political and social perspective in textbooks for upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna studie har syftet varit att besvara hur globaliseringsprocessen framställs i läroböcker för gymnasieskolan utifrån ekonomiska, politiska och sociala perspektiv, klargöra eventuell förändring över tid samt besvara på vilket sätt läroböcker ska värderas utifrån teoretiska aspekter. Det har gjorts genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys med ett operationaliseringsschema som stöd. Resultatet visar att det ekonomiska perspektivet är överrepresenterat i läroböcker när det handlar om globaliseringsprocessen. Politiska och sociala perspektiven behandlas inte alls i samma utsträckning som det ekonomiska perspektivet. Av de underkategorier som undersöks – orsaker, konsekvenser och aktörer – var det konsekvenserna av globaliseringen som behandlade till största del. Enligt teorin var handel en ekonomisk orsak till globaliseringen. Enligt materialet var handel en konsekvens av globaliseringen. Samtidigt var teknisk utveckling enligt teorin en ekonomisk konsekvens medan materialet presenterade teknisk utveckling som en orsak till globaliseringen. Detta indikerade på att läroböckerna inte fullt vilade på samma vetenskapliga grund som föreslogs i det teoretiska ramverket. Slående var materialets likheter mellan den tidigare och senare upplagan. I många fall var behandlingen av globaliseringsprocessen identiska mellan upplagorna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to answer how the globalization process has been presented in textbooks for upper secondary school by economic, political and social perspectives, bring clarification to any possible changes over time that may occur and answer how textbooks should be evaluated based on theoretical aspects. A qualitative content analysis has been made with an operationalization scheme as a support. The result show that the economic perspective is overrepresented in the textbooks when globalization process is being processed. The political and social perspectives is not processed the same amount as the economic perspective is being processed. Of the subcategories – cause, consequence and participants – the consequence of the globalization was processed mostly. The economic cause of globalization according to the theory was trading. According to the material trading was one of the consequences of the globalization. Meanwhile the technical development was according to the theory an economic consequence in the meantime the material presented technical development as a cause of the globalization. This indicated that the textbooks did not fully rest on the same scientific basis as suggested in the theoretical framework. The materials similarities between the earlier and later edition was striking. In many cases the processing of the globalization process vas identical between the editions.
