Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the teaching materials in the history subject reflects men and women. With discourse analysis as a tool, to study the language, the result intends to see the structures and categories that men and women are assigned. The idea is also that the result will be seen in a identity theoretical perspective to see how it can affect students in their identity formation. The result showed how men are the norm in the teaching material, and that women often end up in the margins of the text . The text shows that the portrayal of men and women shows a separated relation, where women are what men are not. Women are reflected to have the main responsibilaties for the household and children while the men are reflected as war heroes and scientists. The result also shows that men are more often called by names and that women often aren´t. This study´s outcome is similar to the previous research that showed that women are marginalised in the teaching materials in the history subjects.
