When everyone walks away : A study about how social exclusion is portrayed in picture books (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to investigate how social exclusion is portrayed in four picture books through text and images, and through the interaction between them. The studied picture books are Alla går iväg by Eva Lindström, Lenka by Katalin Szegedi, Pricken by Margret Rey and Snäll by Gro Dahle. The result shows that the social exclusion is described as being caused by different factors. From the analysis it is obvious that the social environment plays a major role and also that both children and adults can be the reason for the exclusion. The picture-book analysis includes a study of how social exclusion based on appearance and invisibility is communicated in text and pictures. This can be done by showing the characters depressed and invisible to the people around them, for example, through resigned looks or captured behind a forced smile.
