Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Lilla Aktuellt is the only news show in Sweden that is directed toward children and is supposed to be at their service - producing news for them in a way that they can relate to and understand. The aim of this study is to investigate how people that participate in interviews in Lilla Aktuellt are represented depending on their sex, age and ethnicity with the help of intersectionality, social representation and framing theories. We have tried to answer if there are any patterns in how people who participate in the news reports of Lilla Aktuellt are portrayed depending on what sex, age or ethnicity they could belong to. We also investigate what differences and similiarities that can be distinguished from the content of the show over time depending on these social categories.
We have done a critical discourse analysis on 52 news reports from the program, with half from 2004 and half from 2014. During this process we found several discourses which suggests that there is a difference in how people are portrayed dependning on the social categories mentioned above, and what subjects they get to represent in the news reports. There is also a change in what kind of news that are brought up in the programs in 2014 compared to 2004, which have lead to a difference in who gets to participate the most in the program. Our study shows that children gets a greater representation in 2014 than in 2004.
