Abstract [en]

Self-concept within the psychological field has like many other instances excluded the African people in the research field or treated the Black people as “the other”. The present study stress the theoretical problem and, through a different methodology than the hitherto used in the field, address the self in Ugandans as Africans to cover some of the existing gap. With the assumption that the West influence on the African continent affecting the perception of the self, the self of Ugandans are investigated through deductive thematic analysis. The self, perceived to closely connected to the African culture and way of living, is affected by imperialism and the previous colonialism in the history of Uganda. Results in relation to previous research, limitations and further research are discussed.

Abstract [sv]

Självkoncept har inom den psykologiska fältet, likt många andra fält, exkluderat Afrikaner inom forskning eller behandlat Afrikaner som "den andre". Denna studie belyser den teoretiska problem, och genom annan metodologi belyser självet hos Ugandier såsom Afrikaner, i ett försök att täcka det existerande avsaknaden. Med antagandet om att den västerländska influensen på Afrika som kontinent har påverkat upplevelsen av självet, undersökt självet hos Ugandier genom deduktiv tematisk analys. Självet, uppfattad som nära förbunden med den Afrikanska kulturen och sättet att leva, är påverkad av imperialismen och kolonialism. Resultat i relation till tidigare forskning, begränsningar samt vidare forskning diskuteras.
