Abstract [sv]

Denna studie syftar till att analysera hur flyktingar framställdes i svensk dagspress under perioden 1:a augusti 2015 - 1:a december 2015. Genom ett kvalitativt diskurspsykologiskt angreppssätt med i huvudsak socialkonstruktionistiska utgångspunkter undersöker vi hur språket konstruerar olika framställningar av flyktingar i artiklarna. Det empiriska materialet består av 51 artiklar från svensk dagspress; 17 artiklar från Dagens Nyheter, 17 artiklar från Svenska Dagbladet samt 17 artiklar från Göteborgsposten. Artiklarna har genomgått en tematiserad kodning och analyserats med hjälp av analysverktygen tolkningsrepertoarer och ideologiska dilemman. Resultatet av denna studie visar att flyktingar framställdes utifrån sex olika tolkningsrepertoarer; belastning, kontroll, offer, förmänsklingande, behövande samt hot & rädsla. Tre av dessa tilldelades underkategorier då porträtteringen kunde uppfattas från två olika håll; kontroll delades in i bristande kontroll och den existerande kontrollen och dess förstärkning, förmänsklingande delades upp i engagemang av civilsamhälle och individer och behövande delades in i behov av samhälleliga resurser och behov av humanitära åtgärder. Vi noterade även en motsättning mellan dessa tolkningsrepertoarer, något som kunde tolkas som ideologiska dilemman; repertoarera belastning och behövande, kontroll och humanitet samt hot & rädsla och offer upplevdes vara oförenliga och kunde i vissa fall ses som varandras motsatser.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to analyze how refugees were presented in the Swedish daily press during the period between August 1, 2015 – December 1, 2015. Through a qualitative discursive psychology perspective with mainly a social constructionistic basis, we researched how the use of language creates diffirent presentations of "the refugee" in the articles. The empirical material consists of 51 articles from the Swedish daily press; 17 articles from Dagens Nyheter, 17 articles from Svenska Dagbladet and 17 articles from Göteborgsposten. All of the articles have been coded on a thematised basis and then analyzed through the analythic tools interpretation repertoires and ideological dilemmas. The result showed that refugees was presented on the basis of six different interpretation repertoires; liability, control, victim, humanization, in need and threat & fear. Three of these was also assigned subcategories due to the fact that the presentation could be interpretaded from two different perspectives; control was divided into lack of control and the existing control and its reinforcements, humanization into the commitment of civil society and individuals and in need into in need of community resources and in need of humanitarian measures. Furthermore, we noted a contradiction between some of the interpretation repertoires, which could be interpreted as ideological dilemmas; the repertoires liability and in need, control and humanization and threat & fear and victim could be seen as incompatible because of the opposites in their presentation.
