Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate which discourse dominates a group conference between parent, teacher and child. My questions to examine are: which discourse can be seen as the dominating discourse based on the texts I use in my study, which subject positions do the main discourse construct and how do subject positions legitimize the discourse? To be able to answer this questions I have studied texts consisting of a pocket of a local order and interviews with four preschool teachers. I have used a discourse analysis inspired by Foucault, with a social constructionistic perspective. My result is based by using the theories of Foucault about discourses, power/knowledge and subject positions. The result of the study shows that the dominating discourse contradicts the dominating discourse of individual conferences in Swedish preschools. According to the discourse the group conference is a meeting where parents, teachers and children meets and having a dialogue about the learning of children. The subject positions are constructed to legitimize this perspective.
