The Decorous Girl : The Production of Normality Amongst Girls in Kamratposten (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The overall aim of this thesis is to examine the production and repetitiveness of gender patterns with focus on girls in the swedish tween magazine Kamratposten. This is of importance due to the non existing research on Kamratposten concerning this specific topic. The aim is also to evoke a broader discussion about the relationsship between gender representation and pedagody. The theoretical framework is based on three concepts, namly Yvonne Hirdman’s gender contract, Judith Butler’s performativity and the idea of heteronormativity. The material underlying the study consists of articles published in Kamratposten during 2010. These articles are divided into two subcategories following the theoretical framework, inside and outside home. The methodological objectives are based on a broader definition of textual analysis, where text consists of a written part as well as of a visual part. The findings of the study includes the following: (1) historical gender patterns are retained (2) individuals of the dominant group are mainly presented and (3) a systematic presentation of a stereotype girl is visible.
