Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Genusvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: The aim of the thesis is to examine the change that the professional role of dental nurses has undergone and to see how a feminization of the profession maintain linguistic notions of gender, power structures and performativity. Since I started working as a dental nurse, I have taken an interest in its professional role and the beliefs that exist. Different power structures and beliefs how dental nurses should be based on social norms interested me to continue researching this subject. In order to investigate the feminization of the profession and its impact on perceptions of gender, power structures and performativity I will address Judith Butler's theory of performativity and feminist postmodernism. This thesis use discourse analysis both as theory and method. I use published materials in forms of books, dissertation, investigation from Socialstyrelsen and articles. The study shows a patterned, there has been a change in the description of dental nurses. Before the focus was on the expected female gender and her femininity. Now the focus has shifted to the qualities of dental nurses. With this and my experience my conclusion is that the linguistic notions associated with dental nurses will remain because they are deeply encoded to the profession.
