Kvinnan, mannen och drogerna i filmen: en kvalitativ diskursanalys

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The purpose of this essay is to identify how the drug user is portrayed in motion pictures. My main questions are: How is the drug use described? How is the male and female drug user depicted? How may the movies contribute to the construction, reproduction and change of gender? The method I use in my research is a qualitative, selective discourse- analysis of a number of movies prominently portraying drug use. A gender perspective is also applied on this paper. The main result of the study is that I have found that the great majority of the analyzed films portray drug use as means for something else. Drug use is often portrayed in the beginning as heavenly but changes to be depicted as problematic. Discursive connections show that the male drug user is represented as active and capable. Among the male drug users homosocial situations were also common. The most frequent images of the female drug user that have appeared are the passive, absent, uncontrolled and the sexual object. The movies yield stereotype pictures but hegemonic values has been challenged.
