Identitetssökandet hos unga flickor i 2010 års barn- och ungdomslitteratur
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
My ambition with his exam is to study how young girls are being depicted in swedish novels of 2010. I have analyzed how the identity and the search for identity are produced in these books. To be able to make my analysis of these books I have used Maria Nikolajeva’s book Barnbokens byggklossar. From wich I have worked out a few questions that I have used my analysis in the portrayal of these girls. All the girls are between 12-14 years old and they all are struggeling to find out who and what they realy are.
To put my results and analysis in a bigger perspective i have compared them with earlier research of how girls have been depicted in novels through history.
Throughout history girl books have had the purpuse to bring up girls into being good girls. In the novels of 2010 we can see that girls now are being depicted differently. But one thing they all have in common is their search for identity and for finding who they realy are. They all are struggeling to trust who they realy are and to find the courage to stand up for themselvs and their identity.
