How do gender stereotypes manifest in DreamWorks Animation’s animated movies? (English)
Abstract [en]

There are plenty of studies about how gender stereotypes manifest in different kinds of films. To date studies about how gender stereotypes manifest in the films of the company DreamWorks are missing. Therefore, three of DreamWorks most successfulfilms have undergone a content analysis to examine whether the studio sends messages of typically gender based stereotypes to its viewers.

The analysis is based upon theories of masculinity, femininity, gender, and ageism. This investigation displays that the male characters who play the main characters in these films in some aspects expresses a gender stereotypical masculinity as well as feminine qualities. In conclusion DreamWorks male characters are multifaceted and deep characters who are not a stereotypical image of a certain type of masculinity. The female character’s qualities had a variation of masculinity and femininity, however, was still substantially bound to a feminine appearance, thin and beautiful.

Abstract [sv]

Det finns gott om studier av hur könsstereotyper manifesteras i olika slags film. Hittills saknas dock forskning hur könsstereotyper manifesteras i bolaget DreamWorks filmer. I denna studie har därför tre av DreamWorks mest framgångsrika filmer undergått en innehållsanalys för att undersöka huruvida studion sänder budskap om typiskt könsbaserade stereotyper till sina tittare. Analysen bygger på teori om maskulinitet, femininitet, genus och ålderism. 

Undersökningen visar är att de manliga karaktärerna som spelar huvudrollerna i samtliga filmer i vissa aspekter uttrycker en könsstereotypisk manlighet samtidigt som de även har feminina kvaliteter. Som slutsats kan man se att DreamWorks manliga karaktärer är mångfacetterade och djupa karaktärer som inte är stereotypiska avbildningar av en viss sorts maskulinitet. De kvinnliga karaktärernas egenskaper hade en variation bland maskulina och feminina, men var till stor del bunden till ett feminint utseende, smal och vacker.
