Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att öka kunskapen om hur latinamerikanska kvinnor som rollfigurer porträtteras inom amerikanska populärfilmer. Vi vill undersöka om det finns tydliga stereotyper i relation till rollfigurens genus, etnicitet och klass. Med hjälp av ett intersektionellt perspektiv och begreppsliga redogörelser av ''latino'' representationer i film ämnar vi att analysera tre Hollywoodfilmer över tidsperioden 2003 till 2011. Dessa filmer är ''Chasing papi'' (2003), ''Ask the dust'' (2006) och ''Without men'' (2011). Metoden som använts för att närmare kunna genomföra analysen är kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Det centrala i en innehållsanalys är att arbeta tematiskt, vilket gjorts. Våra framtagna teman i analysavsnittet är (1) sexuell diskurs (2) rasifierad diskurs och (3) klassmärkta femininiteter. Vi har konstaterat att den kvinnliga rollfiguren stereotypiseras i relation till hennes genus, etnicitet och klass i den bemärkelsen att hon framställs som annorlunda och exotisk i kontrast till de övriga rollinnehavare i filmerna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to increase knowledge about how latinamerican women are potrayed in American popular films. We examine whether ther are apparent sterotypes in relation to gender, ethnicity and class. With the support of an intersectionality approach and with the use of conceptual explanations of ''latino'' represantations in films, we aim to analyze three Hollywood films over the time period of 2003 to 2011. These films are ''Chasing papi'' (2003), ''Ask the dust'' (2006) and ''Without men'' (2011). The used method to enable us to further analyze the material is a qualitative content analysis. The crucial aspect of a qualitative content analysis is to work with themes, which we have done. These themes are (1) sexual discourse (2) rasified discourse (3) class marked femeninities.  Through our analysis we have found that the latinamerican female character is stereotyped in relation to her gender, ethnicity and class in the sense that she is portrayed different and exotic in contrast to other actors in the films.
