"Has it gotten better?" : A qualitative content analysis of the portrayal of Islam in textbooks for upper secondary school (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the following study is to examine the portrayal of Islam in Swedish textbooks for upper secondary education, as well as to compare how the textbooks present Islam with how they present Christianity. The textbooks used in this study have been examined using a qualitative content analysis. The result of the study suggests that the textbooks’ presentation of Islam has, based on previous research on the same subject, become better, although it is still not completely unproblematic. Even though modern textbooks try – and are relatively successful – to avoid stereotypical and over-generalised portrayals of Islam and Muslims, descriptions and formulations that are highly charged are still present. The study also shows that the textbooks rarely examine Islam through the lens of source criticism. In their respective chapters on Christianity, the textbooks examine Christianity using source criticism. This, however, does not occur in the chapters on Islam.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med följande studie är att undersöka presentationen av islam i svenska läroböcker avsedda för gymnasieutbildning, samt att jämföra hur läroböckerna presenterar islam med hur de presenterar kristendom. Läromedlen som använts i denna studie har undersökts utifrån en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Resultatet av undersökningen tyder på att läromedlens presentation av islam har, utifrån tidigare forskning av samma ämne, blivit bättre. Trots detta är det fortfarande inte helt oproblematiskt. Även om moderna läroböcker försöker – och gör det relativt bra – att undvika stereotypa och övergeneraliserande framställningar av islam och muslimer förekommer ändå beskrivningar och formuleringar som är ytterst värdeladdade. Undersökningen visar även att läromedlen sällan granskar islam källkritiskt. I sina respektive kapitel om kristendom granskar läroböckerna kristendomen källkritiskt. Detta förekommer emellertid inte i kapitlen om islam.
