Krigarprinsessor som avskyr osmidig finklädsel : En tematisk analys om hur genus representeras i Disneys senaste prinsessfilm och hur det skiljer sig från tidigare prinsessfilmer

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för medier och journalistik (MJ)

Sammanfattning: The Disneyprincesses-phenomenon is wide known in the world today and Disney has also received a lot of criticism for their representation of gender and gender roles in their movies. In the earlier eras the princesses and princes were represented with a lot of traditional stereotypes. Because the target group for Disney often is kids and families it’s likely that this can influence kids and affect their behaviors to others and also their interpretation on gender roles in the society. The aim for this study is to find out to which extent Disney’s latest princessmovie, Raya and the last dragon, corresponds to the stereotypical gender representations in Disney’s previous princess movies that previous research has identified. The study also aims to create an understanding of how gender is represented in Disney’s latest princess movie and to which extent it differs from earlier movies. By using several previous studies and relevant theories, like the representation theory, social role theory and gender theories, these questions are answered and discussed. Despite that earlier research has identified a lot of differences in Disney’s representation of gender and some researchers mean that the representation in the movies does not correspond to the social reality that we live in, in Raya and the last dragon several of these representations have improved and come a long way if we compare to the earlier movies and has also improved significantly from the later movies.
