Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur en grupp gymnasieelever ser på sitt eget och andras identitetsskapande i förhållande till media. 

Frågeställningar:

●       Vilken inverkan anser deltagarna att media har på deras sociala kön och kroppsuppfattning?

●       Ser deltagarna någon skillnad på hur killar och tjejer förhåller sig till media i sitt identitetskapande?

●       Vad anser deltagarna att de normer och ideal som media förmedlar innebär för deras

identitetsskapande?

 

Sammanfattning:

Vår datainsamlingsmetod har bestått av två kvalitativa gruppintervjuer som genomförts på gymnasieskolor med deltagare som går sitt tredje år. Vid analysen av den insamlade empirin har vår teoretiska utgångspunkt varit Socialkonstruktionism och fenomenologin vår förståelsegrund.  Vid analysen har vi använt oss utav IPA – metoden. Viktiga begrepp har varit identitetskapande, socialt kön, kroppsuppfattning, självkänsla och media. Vi ville få reda på hur en grupp gymnasieelever ser på sitt och andras identitetsskapande i förhållande till media.  Detta resultat presenteras i tio teman under rubrikerna; Tillgänglighetens dilemma, Att ha distans, Vem skall man lyssna på?, Säger en bild mer än tusen ord?, Att sätta kön på en egenskap, Att vara tjej - ett kravfyllt uppdrag, Att bli medveten om sin kropp, Overklig verklighet, Bekräftelse - att få “likes” och Att överträffa sig själv. Det vi fann var att deltagarna ansåg att media, och där i främst den sociala median, var med och påverkade identitetsskapandet ur flera aspekter. Vi fann att deltagarna ansåg att de sociala medierna används delvis för att spegla sin egen identitet i andras, då de talade om att identiteten skapas socialt. Det framkom från deltagarna att de ansåg individer oftast endast visar de positiva sidorna av livet på de sociala medierna, vilket resulterar i en press att alltid överträffa sig själv och andra.

Title: “All of our upbringing has kind of become public”- A qualitative study on how a group of high school students views their own and others construction of identity in relation to media.

Authors: Elisabeth Lindberg & Emelie Bokdalen. Level: Bachelors Thesis 15 Higher Education Credits.

Subject: Social work. Program: Program in Social pedagogy, 180 Higher Education Credits, University West. Term: Spring term 2013.

Supervisor: Åsa Andersson.

 

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to explore how a group of high school students view their own and other people’s identity construction in relation to media.

 

Problem statements:

●   What kind of impact does the youth consider that media has on their social sex and body image?

●   Does the youth see any difference between how guys and girls relate to media in their identity construction?

●   What impact does the youth consider that the norms and ideals that media conveys have on their identity construction?

Summary:

Our datacollection method consisted of two qualitative group interviews conducted in high schools with participants who are completing their third year. Socialconstructionism has been our theoretical starting point in the analysis of the empirical data together with phenomenology as a basis of understanding. When analyzing the material we used the IPA method. Key words have been identity construction, social sex, body image, self-esteem and media.

We wanted to know how a group of high school students views their and other people’s identity construction in relation to media. This result was presented in ten themes with the headlines; The accessibility’s dilemma, To be distant, Who should you listen to?, Does a picture say more than a thousand words?, To put gender on an attribute,  To be a girl - a demanding mission, To become conscious about your body, Unreal reality, Affirmation - to get “likes” and To exceed yourself. What we found was that the participants felt that media, and foremost social media, had an influence on their identity construction from several aspects. We found that the participants considered that social media is used partly for reflecting your own identity in other people, since they talked about the identity as socially constructed. It emerged from the participants that they considered that individuals usually only show the positive sides of life on social media, that resulting in a pressure to always surpass oneself and others.
