Abstract [en]

English title: The effects of the academic discourse - A study with the student as focus 26 % of the population in Sweden is highly educated. At the university you are forced to face the academical discourse in order to manage your education. This qualitative study will therefore examine what impact the academic discourse may have on the student. Previous research shows that there are great problems regarding language discrimination, but such science has a focus, almost exclusively, on minority-groups. The purpose with this study is therefore, from a majority-group perspective, to analyze how the academic discourse affects the students sense of community and analyze how it affects the students identity. It will be analyzed with Erving Goffmans dramaturgic perspective and Donald Broady translation of Pierre Bourdieu theories about capital, field and habitus. The key-point in this study is to target the majority-group, the ones that master the language so well that it could be regarded as their mother-tongue.

This study is based on six qualitative interviews with students at Örebro University. This study shows that the academic discourse has a positive effect on the students sense of community with regards to the personal will to adapt the academic discourse and understand it. The students identity is effected in that aspect that they are forced to adjust and are being shaped from the norms, values and expectations that is valued by the university.
