Könsförvirring: En narrativ studie av normbrytande genus i barndomen
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay deals with non-normative gender expressions during childhood. I’m using narrative theory and methods to analyze autobiographical narratives. My questions are:
- What strategies does the non-normative person use to deal with his otherness?
- Using the methodological analysis tool ”turning point”, where are the turning points in the narratives? Are their any common turning points in the various narratives?
- Where is the responsibility placed in the narratives for that someone does not fit in by the adults/ staff at the school/kindergarten- on the non-normative person or at the surroundings?
The experiences are interpreted through theories and concepts from queer theory and gender theory. The study reflects the importance of an anti-oppressive pedagogy in school.
