The discourse of rape in the Swedish press Dagens Nyheter : Focus on the perpetrator and the vicitm (English)
The aim of this essay is to describe the discourse of rape in the Swedish press Dagens Nyheter. The research questions are focused on how the concept of rape, the perpetrator and the victim are described in the discourse of rape in Dagens Nyheter. The study consists 48 articles from the Swedish press Dagens Nyheter and they have been published during 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. All the articles contain the term of rape. The articles have been analysed with Fairclough’s critical discourse analysis and resulted in four areas; "rape", "how the perpetrator and the victim are described based on gender, age and name", "the relation between the perpetrator and the victim" and "the attribute of the perpetrator and the victim". The main results can be explained by different theories, in this essay social constructivism and gender theory will be used as theoretical tools. The conclusions that can be drawn from this study are that the perpetrators are men at the age of below 20 to 30 years, the victims are women at the age of below 20 years and the diversely parts are described in different ways in the discourse of rape.
