Abstract [en]

This essay is about masculinity in the Swedish television series Solsidan. The study therefore is including a discussion about the Swedish gender equality context. To study Solsidan a semiotic tool was used. This was to see the underlying meanings of the representations in the three male characters Alex, Fredde and Ove. Raewyn Connells concept about a range of masculinities in a hierarchy including hegemony, subordination and complicity ones and how these can be seen in different levels, local, regional and global was included. The purpose of this essay is to examine how masculinity is represented in Solsidan, if there are hegemonic ones, and if these can be seen as equal.

This study came to the result that the characters and their representations are in a somewhat identity crisis between primary two masculinities. One that is more traditional and one that is more modern and family oriented. These do both take the role as a hegemonic role at different levels. The modern and family oriented take a hegemonic role at a regional level since this is the ideal for men that the Swedish politics admire. At a local level thus, there is other more traditional roles that take a hegemonic functioning. The program can be seen as it problematizes that the characters are in these two kinds of masculinities, and also I question if the Swedish state lifts Sweden as a country with men that are equal, but at the local level you can see that this might not always be the case.
