Abstract [sv]

The purpose of this study is to understand how the school manages to question norms, and in doing so might prevent its students from being subjected to discrimination and other degrading treatment. This has been done with a focus on how gender related norms are represented, reproduced and questioned in children’s fictional literature. Two methods have been used; a survey and an literary analysis. The survey was conducted on primary school teachers with the intent to collect information related to their thoughts when choosing books to use in their classrooms, and also to source commonly used fiction. The top five titles used by these teachers have been analysed with a queer theoretical and intersectional perspective, based on six criteria. The conclusion of the analysis is that gender related norms are reproduced and confirmed through the stories told in the five books, with the exception of the norm related to how a typical girl should act. Girls in contemporary children’s fiction are brave and active, which are personal traits generally perceived as typical for boys. According to the analysis the most commonly reproduced norm is the norm of heterosexuality.
