“Den kommer höras högt i alla ghettokidsens lur” : - En hermeneutisk analys om hur svensk hiphop och reggae konstruerar kön
Sammanfattning: Previous research shows how music presents gender in different ways depending on the genre, and that music can affect the listeners' behaviour. There is also research that shows how gender is constructed in different social arenas and through people's way of expressing themselves and communicating. The purpose of this study is to investigate how lyrics within Swedish reggae and hip hop can express and construct gender by analysing artists' lyrics from a gender perspective. Based on a social constructivist perspective characterized by gender theories by Yvonne Hirdman, Raewyn Connell, Judith Butler, Candace west and Don H. Zimmerman, the results of the text analysis can be investigated as a source of construction, reproduction and maintenance of gender and gender stereotypes. The study also takes a didactic perspective where a reflection describes how the results of the study can influence the teaching in the school. The result shows that Swedish hip hop and reggae can be a source of both construction and reproduction and maintenance of sex and gender. Lyrics within hip hop constructs an ideal image of men as successful in the music industry, independent and as a drug user while the image of women can be described as an object owned by the man and also compared to other physical objects, such as money and weapons. Lyrics within reggae constructs an ideal image of men as charming, the promotion of equality and cannabis smoking while women are portrayed as and communicates that the women should be powerful, beautiful and equal or superior to men.
