Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to use intersectional queer theoretical analysis in order to investigate if the Swedish female-fronted humor series "Mia och Klara" can be understood as feminist. Through semiotic analysis of discourses in the material, the appearance and non-appearance of different social location and the portrayal of these can be established. The social location-analysis coupled with the Bechdel test will show us that the show can be perceived as female-focused but that certain characters are paradoxical and challenge the primacy of the male gaze through storyline and camera angles. The TV-series can to the most part be seen as a liberal- and post-feminist storyline that reinforces and re-affirms a white, Swedish, femininity project.
