"Världen är en saga! Sagan är en värld! Ja, vännen, det har du rätt i! Men varje saga har en moralisk mening och budskap” (Adam Mickiewicz) : En uppsats om genus och jämställdhet i barnlitteraturen i Sverige, Polen och Turkiet
Sammanfattning: The aim of this research is to study how gender is constructed and represented in children's literature through image and text analysis of the four selected children's books from respectively Sweden, Poland, and Turkey. Through our analysis we want to demonstrate the prevailing gender discourses expressed in children's books through text and image. From this we want to create an understanding of the importance of the selection of children's books and the role of adults in communicating and discussing the content. The study has feminist poststructuralism as theory which is part of social constructivism. To achieve the in-depth analysis, we used semiotic text and image analysis as well as multimodality and critical discourse analysis. The study's findings show that, based on semiotic image and text analysis, most analyzed books convey and portray a conventional and traditional image of femininity and masculinity. There are some breakthrough challenges in the selected children's books that adults need to attend to in social practice with the children. The result we have reached is only partly in line with the curriculum for preschool gender equality. Some messages are also in conflict with them.
