Why not MajaLasses? : A gender analysis of the series of LasseMajas detective bureau (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med vår uppsats är att göra en genusanalys på sex böcker ur serien om LasseMajas detektivbyrå, vilka är populära inom barnboksgenren. Vårt material består av sex LasseMaja böcker som vi valt ut. Som metod för att analysera vårt material har vi valt textanalys. Den teoretiska grund vi valt att basera vår uppsats på är genus, men vi har också valt att använda begreppen stereotyper, performativitet, heteronormativitet och maskulinitet för att kunna nå en djupare analytisk nivå. Det vi upptäckt är att trots att dessa böcker till en början verkar vara ganska jämställda, så finns det vid en närmre läsning exempel på stereotypa framställningar av manligt och kvinnligt. Dock såg vi tendenser till att Maja oftare var mer gränsöverskridande än Lasse och hon kunde ibland bli något av en pojkflicka

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to do a gender analysis of six books from the series about LasseMajas detektivbyrå (LasseMajas detective bureau). These books are all very popular in the genre of childrens books. Our material consists of six LasseMaja books which are randomly chosen

. The method we have chosen in our review of the material is text analysis. The main theoretical base in our thesis is gender, but we have also chosen to use the terms stereotypes, performativity, heteronormativity and masculinity to be able to reach a deeper analytical level. What we discovered is that although these books at first seems to be quite good in the aspect of not placing men and women in stereotypical roles, they actually do contain a certain amount of stereotypes and has a way of depict the character Lasse as a typical boy and the character Maja as a typical girl. However we did notice that the character Maja was more inclined to be cross-boundary and become a sort of tomboy.
