The Duty of Health : The topic of Health in Contemporary Textbooks in Swedish for Immigrants. A Critical Discourse Analysis (English)
Abstract [sv]

Baserat på den kritiska diskursanalysens (CDA) teoretiska ramverk, som det har utvecklats av Norman Fairclough, undersöker denna uppsats hur tre svenska läroböcker för vuxna andraspråksinlärare behandlar temat hälsa. Analysen görs på tre nivåer: text, diskursiv praktik och social praktik. På textnivå visar undersökningen av teman, propositioner, modalitet, talhandlingar och röster hur läroböckerna framställer hälsa som individuellt ansvar, personlig prestation och plikt. På den diskursiva praktikens nivå fokuserar uppsatsen på interdiskursiviteten och belyser hur texterna bygger på ett spektrum av olika genrer och diskurser. Slutligen framhåller analysen hur texterna är en del av en bredare samtida social praktik, enligt vilken hälsa betraktas som ett individuellt projekt, relaterat till begreppet risksamhälle, och fungerar som en brännpunkt för värden som är framträdande i västerländsk kultur.

Abstract [en]

Based on the theoretical framework of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), as developed by Norman Fairclough, this paper examines how three Swedish textbooks for adult second-language learners deal with the topic of health. The analysis is done on three levels: text, discursive practice and social practice. On text level, the examination of topics, propositions, modality, speech functions and voices demonstrates how the textbooks consider health to be a matter of individual responsibility, personal accomplishment and duty. On the level of discursive practice, the paper focuses on interdiscursivity and sheds light upon how the texts draw upon a range of different genres and discourses. Eventually, the analysis points out how the texts are a part of a wider, contemporary social practice, according to which health is regarded as an individual project, linked to the concept of risk society, and functions as a focal point of prominent values of western culture.
