A qualitative study about how social norms regarding gender and sexual orientation are being challenged in preschool (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis is written with the intent to draw attention towards two of the gendernorms that affects us all while living in today’s society. By looking closer to the books, songs and stories children have access to and by both observing and interviewing teachers, I try to raise the knowledge of how the heteronorm and cisnorm are being challenged in the two preschools participating in this thesis. Both preschools are located in Sweden and the two persons I have interviewed are both preschoolteachers. I analyze the result of my research from a perspective that criticizes societal norms and has roots in both French post structuralism and queer theory. I also put my result in comparison to previous studies done by other researchers. My result shows that most of the books, songs and stories that children have access to in preschool are cisnormative and heteronormative and one of the teachers I have interviewed say that they don’t have enough knowledge about norms while the other teacher says that they have gotten enough knowledge about norms through in-service training. This thesis verifies, through my presentations of previous research and my own research, that our society is steeped in these two norms.
