Abstract [en]

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.
