Abstract [en]

The education for teachers involves an aspect regarding values in practice, which also contains a dimension of non-discrimination. Meanwhile, research shows problems regarding discrimination on the universities in Sweden, for instance in Bayatis dissertation about exclusion of racified students reveal. The purpose of this study is, through discourse analysis of selected quotes from the course literature at Södertörn’s education of teachers in after-school activities using the key-terms ”immigrant”, ”Swedish” and ”culture”, review the underlining values and norms that are being transferred to the students.

The conclusions in this study supports existing research on the matter that problems exist in regards to exclusion of students at the universities in relation to implicit conceptions about race, varying and excluding definitions of the social category, ”Swedish” and that these aspects put together creates a written creation of ”the other” and leads to a slim image of the expected receiver of the literature. More research needs to be conducted to examine how it is on other universities in Sweden and how the students there perceive these events.
