Abstract [sv]

Syftet med essän är att undersöka hur populärkulturens närvaro och inflytande i förskolan kan förstås utifrån olika perspektiv. Essän tar avstamp i berättelser om hur barn tar inspiration ur populärkulturella erfarenheter då de agerar, vilket leder till konsekvenser, vilka ibland kan upplevas som problematiska. Den undersöker möjligheter och risker med inkludering av populärkultur i förskolan i förhållande till barns literacyutveckling, identitetskonstruktion och inflytande. Den undersöker även vad som kan tänkas ligga bakom exkludering av populärkultur i förskolan.Skrivande har använts som en metod för att reflektera och få syn på nya perspektiv i relation till teorier och tidigare forskning. Reflektionen resulterade i flera upptäckter. Bland annat att klassrelaterade normer kan styra pedagogers val av kulturella aktiviteter i förskolans praktik. Vidare att risken som populärkulturen kan ge upphov till vad gäller identitetskonstruktion i samband med literacyutveckling kan inverteras till möjligheter genom critical literacy. Därigenom kan barn lära sig att se hur texter positionerar oss i samhället och hur de kan positionera sig annorlunda. Slutligen kan inkludering av populärkultur i förskolans praktik, som en konsekvens av barns inflytande stimulera barns literacyutveckling. Eftersom populärkulturen är en del av barns erfarenheter samt att den fungerar som katalysator för lärprocessen, genom att ge upphov till en känsla av flow.

Abstract [en]

This essay aims to examine how presence and influence of popular culture in junior kindergarten can be understood in different ways. The essay is rooted in narratives about children getting inspired from popular culture in their acting that leads to consequences, which sometimes can be experienced as problematic. It explores possibilities and risks that come with including popular culture in junior kindergarten, in relation to literacy development, construction of identity and influence of children. It also explores how to understand what maybe lies behind the exclusion of popular culture in junior kindergarten.Writing has been used as a method to reflect and to spot new perspectives in relation to theories and previous research. The result of the reflection was multiple discoveries. For instance, class related norms can dominate teachers choices of cultural activities put into practice in junior kindergarten. Further on the risks of popular culture, regarding construction of identity in connection with literacy development could be transformed in opportunities through critical literacy. Thereby children can learn to see how we´re positioned in society by texts and how they can position themselves differently. Eventually, inclusion of popular culture into the practice of junior kindergarten, as a result of child influence can stimulate literacy development. Because the popular culture is a part of earlier experiences of the child and it works like a catalyst in the process of learning, while it creates the feeling of flow.
