Abstract [en]

The main purpose of this essay was to highlight how people with disabilities are represented in the SVTplay news reports in spring 2016. Furthermore we view that representation from different kinds of perspectives to encircle the entire problem area. Our analysis is based on a critical discourse analysis, where we mainly focused on studying the text production in the news reports. Results from this analysis indicate that SVT uses a number of different names for the disabled and that these terms often distinguishes the disabled as a specific group. Further, we identified three different discourses in the text. These were Exposed and emotional, The one who can handle everything and The goal is the normal life. These discourses are showcasing a versatility in the representation of disabled people in the news media. But it also shows that SVTplay news often follows some typical stereotypical representations by including different types of relational representations and terms of use.

Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsens huvudsakliga syfte är att lyfta fram hur funktionshindrade blir representerade i SVTplays nyhetsinslag under våren 2016. Likaså betraktar vi denna representation utifrån olika perspektiv för att ringa in problemområdet. Vår analys grundar sig i en kritisk diskursanalytisk metod där fokus är att analysera textproduktionen i inslagen. Resultat från denna analys visar att SVTplay använder ett antal olika benämningar för de funktionshindrade och att dessa benämningar ofta skiljer ut de funktionshindrade som en specifik grupp. Ytterligare identifierade vi tre olika diskurser i texten. Dessa var Utsatt och känslomässig, Den som klarar allt och Målet är det normala livet. Diskurserna visar upp en mångsidighet i representationen av funktionshindrade individer, i detta nyhetsmedium. Men det visar också att SVTplay nyheter ofta följer vissa typiskt stereotypa framställningar via bland annat olika typer av relationsframställningar och begreppsanvändningar.
