Abstract [en]

The study's aim is to implement a textbook analysis and examine how women are described in history textbooks for high school and in the curriculums Lgy 70, Lpf 94 and Gy 11. The study has a gender perspective and the study's purpose is to make a comparative study and compare textbooks with the current curriculum and compare the results with each other to see if there has been any change over time. The survey's material is three editions of Alla tiders historia from Gleerups förlag. The study refers to editions from 1989, 1996 and 2011. General parts from Lgy 70, Lpf 94 and Gy 11 are also central for my study. The general cur­riculum of history from 1981, the course Historia A in Lpf 94 and Historia 1b in Gy 11 are also studied. The study shows that the role of women doesn’t get much space in textbooks and when women are mentioned explicitly, it’s mainly through illustrations or through texts of statement representation. The role of women has not been treated much in governing documents but equality between men and women is something that is common. The study shows that the governing documents interact with the curricula in a relatively large range, although this varies between the different editions. The results demonstrate that there has been a change over time in administrative documents and textbooks. Content and design have changed based on the societal context in which they were designed. The study shows that men are the norm and men are mentioned more than women, both in textbooks and curriculum.
