Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge about the preschool pedagogue’s perspective, values and way of thinking in terms of interculturality. Furthermore, to then compare this knowledge in relation to Södertörn University intercultural profile. Above this, we want to differentiate what can happen between the two. The more isolated purpose of the aforementioned study is not to find right nor wrong, but to gain knowledge about the experienced reality of the pedagogue and as to how this mirrors preschool operations. The question formulation of the study is: which perspective and ways of thinking are conveyed in Södertörn University intercultural profile? Which perspective and ways of thinking in terms of interculturality can be found in pedagogues that are active within the preschools we have visited? What can occur in the engagement between the two? The study is qualitative, and the method constitutes of interviews and observations. Eight pedagogues have participated in the study, whereof two participated in a pilot study. The theoretical viewpoints of the study is selected theories and aspects regarding phenomenology. These have been used to find explanations for the experienced reality of the pedagogues in terms of interculturality. The pivotal conclusion in our study is that Södertörn University definition of interculturality deviates from both contemporary research, as well as what appears in testimony from the pedagogues, which in turn is part of their daily world. This deviation consists of that Södertörn University has a widened definition of interculturality where more cultural aspects are included. A consecution of this conclusion is that the pedagogues who meet in the workplace can have different perceptions regarding intercultural work.
