The construction of immigrants : A discourseanalyse of the discussion forum Passagen.se subcategory Swedish society (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen är att med diskursanalys undersöka hur det dalgliga talet om invandrare ser ut på diskussionsforumet Passagen.se underkategorin svenska samhället. Dessutom vill vi ta reda på hur invandrare konstrueras som problem och hur det är legitimt att tala om invandrare på forumet.Tidigare forskning inom ämnet har gjorts med diskursanalys på talet om invandrare i media, intervjuer och dagligt tal, men främst i andra länder och inte på internet. Vid diskursanalys går teori och metod hand i hand, vilket innebär att de begrepp som vi presenterar i teorin använder vi till stor del i analysmetoden. I analysen fann vi en mängd diskurser i talet om invandrare, vilket resulterade i en dominerande kritisk inställning och en underrepresenterad liberal inställning till invandrare. Invandrare konstrueras som problem genom att ’de’ begår brott, luras, hotar vår kultur, konspirerar mot oss, är kostsamma och på det hela taget är alltför många. På Passagen.se underkategorin svenska samhället är det legitimt att tala kritisk om invandrare. I det kritiska talet om invandrare fann vi ett undvikande av att använda begreppet ’invandrare’ där det istället byts ut mot ”utisar”, ”kulturberikare” och ”MENA-folk”(eufemism för människor från Mellanöstern och Nordafrika).

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to use discourse analysis to investigate the everyday speech concerning 'immigrants' on the forum Passagen.se, subcategory Swedish society. In addition, we intend to discover in what way 'immigrants' is depicted as a problem and how legitimate talk about 'immigrants' is devised. Earlier scientific studies on the subject with discourse analysis as a tool has been performed by analysing various media, interviews and everyday speech, but mostly in other countries than Sweden and not on the internet. In discourse analysis, therory and method is intimately connected, which means that the concepts we present in the Theory section will be used in our Method of analysis. The result of our discourse analysis showed a great number of discourses, concerning immigrants, most of them sceptic, but also a few liberal ones. 'Immigrants' is depicted as a problem in the way that 'they' are said to commit crime, deceive, threaten 'our' culture, conspire against 'us', are way too costly and on the whole simply are way too many. On Passagen.se, subcategory Swedish society it is ligitimate to talk about 'immigrants' critically, as long as one does not actually use the word 'immigrants,' but different kinds of euphemisms.
