Abstract

This study aims at investigating how four different Swedish newspapers produce the

phenomenon of honor, creating differences between "we and them" (our own quotation), as

well as a summary of the differences between the newspapers'. This is to gain a deeper

knowledge of the connection between the honour phenomenon and Swedish media. Method:

Eight articles were collected based first on predetermined criteria and then by a random

selection from all four newspapers. Analysis: The collected material was divided based on the

issues as well as an thematization of the content and then analyzed in order to answer these

questions. This study is based on an intersectional perspective with the following concepts:

Culture, power, ethnicity, biological and social gender. Conclusion: The conclusions drawn in

the following study are that the writers build their text content on factors that are represented

as the causes of the honour-related violence. The most relevant factors are culture, religion

and ethnicity, where the term gender also creates an additional dimension in the explanations

of the honour phenomena. These explanations can further create a division between "we and

them" (our own quotation). The victims of the articles are often made as weak and helpless as

well as being young girls of different origins. The role of the villain becomes complex, as the

practitioners themselves becomes the helper, while honour or culture takes the place as the

main villain character in the content of the text. Even society is assigned a meaning through

two different roles, patrons and the fraudulent rescuer. Based on this conclusion, a model was

formed that might serve to clarify when it comes to the media's presentation of the

relationship between the majority society and the victim of the honour violence. From this

model, it becomes possible to understand the importance of self-awareness regarding attitudes

in society and how it can further affect social work.
