Five minutes past twelve one night in winter time : victims and media a study of different kinds of story telling about the same incident (English)
This study is based on narratives from two victims of violence. A raped old woman has turned to be the core of this narrative of narrative. She is both a narrator and the head person in her narrative. Her narrative turned out to be a dialogue between two genres namely her trauma story and her life story. By experience violence has been associated with masculinity and powr, which is discussed in some detail. Victims are often exposed in media narratives. This study has studied the narratives, the narrative of the victim and narrative of the local papers in Gotland about the same incident. There were differences as to content, forms and goals of their narratives. The victim expressed indirectly a wish to preserve their cultural identy and to regain balance in their life while the local papers want to preserve the reputation of the possibility of good and safe living in the isle of Gotland.
In addition to this a short comparison of the used method of narrative analysis is undertaken.
