The modern fable. : A picture book analysis from a gender perspective. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to discover and analyse the gender stereotypes presented in a selection of books where the characters are gender neutral animals or figures, based on the fact that as a reader you cannot distinguish by the cover or the icon text if the characters are of the male or female sex. The books have been analysed with a qualitative image and text analysis from a gender perspective. The analysis has focused on highlighting the norms presented in the books with a focus on gender roles and the gender markers that can be linked to stereotypical behaviors of girls and boys respectively. The analyses show that the books contain both confirmatory and breaking representations of the characters in both text and image, regarding the prevailing gender stereotypes.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet för denna studie är att upptäcka och analysera de könstereotyper som framställs i ett urval av böcker där karaktärerna är könsneutrala djur eller figurer, i den mån att man som läsare inte kan urskilja via omslaget eller ikonotexten om karaktärerna är av det manliga eller kvinnliga könet. Böckerna har analyserats med en kvalitativ bild och textanalys utifrån ett genusperspektiv. Analysen har fokuserat på att synliggöra de normer som framställs i böckerna med fokus på könsroller och de genusmarkörer som kan kopplas till stereotypa beteenden hos flickor respektive pojkar. Analyserna visar att böckerna innehåller både bekräftande och brytande framställningar hos karaktärerna i både text och bild, gällande de rådande könssterotyperna.
