Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats syftar till att göra en religionsvetenskaplig analys av filmen Thor från 2011.

De grundläggande metoderna som använts i arbetet är en diskursanalysmetod som är influerad av Simon Lindgrens populärkulturella arbetsfält, och en komparativ studie av Joseph Campbells teoriom monomyten.

Våra tolkningar och arbetet kommer fram till att Thor passar in i Campbells teori om monomyten.

This essay aims to make a religious scientific based analysis of the movie Thor from 2011.

The basic methods used in this work are a discourse analysis, influenced by Simon Lindgren’s popular culture field of expertise, and a comparative study of Joseph Campbell's theory of the monomyth.

Our interpretations and this work concludes that Thor fits into Campbell's theory of the monomyth. The results imply that Campbell's theory proves to be applicable in modern times narration on film. Events and actors in the film fit with several elementary parts in a hero-myth according to Campbell.
