Den starka kvinnan och den manliga mannen: En analys av svenska artisters framställning i Dagens Nyheters artiklar
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this study I have examined how Swedish artists are portrayed in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. I have been using a critical discourse analysis to analyze twelve articles, whereof six interviews with female performing artists and six with male performing artists.
The main findings show that the journalist mostly describes the artists in ways that can be seen as normative for the female and male gender. The female artists are described as strong and caring about relationships, while the majority of the male artists are described as brave and tough. Both the female and male performing artists are described as outreach and people who are not affraid to express themselves.
