"Horan, knarkaren och fettot": En queerfeministisk analys av normer och normskapande bland häxorna i Cirkeln
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this essay, I make a queer feminist analysis of Mats Strandberg’s and Sara Bergmark Elfgren’s teenage novel ”Cirkeln”, which is about six teenage girls who learn that they are witches with a mission to save the world from demons. Using Judith Butler's theories, I examine the norms of sex/gender, ethnicity, class and sexuality found in the text and how these standards are created. I also analyze whether, and if so how, these standards may change when the magical elements enter the text.
I also discuss the fact that older Gothic novels with magical elements often have been regarded as queer through history.
