    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to explore school librarians view on junior high school students literacy and approaches to promoting reading in the school library. My main focus is to identify what norms and values that are made visible in the school librariens description of a junior high school student literacy and a junior high school student as a reading subject. The empircal study is based on qualitative interviews with five school librarians from Stocholm county. Social constructivism is used as a theoretical framework in the analysis and different theroretical tools within critical discourse theory, Bourdieus theory of power positions in the social field and literacy as social practise. Three main discourses were identified in the analysis; the reading discourse, the school librarian discourse and the norm critical discourse. All of these discourses overlap and influence each other. In the reading discourse the junior high school student is constructed as a ”reader” or a ”non-reader” and the construction of literacy is based upon a traditional view of literacy in school as educative. The school librarian discourse construct the role of the school librarian as inferior in relation to the teacher role in the classroom. In the norm critical discourse a definition of the term norm critical is limited to a LGBT and gender perspective, leaving out other perspectives such as class, ethnicity and disabillity. The school librarian construct an image of a junior high school student and a junior high school student literacy based on schools socioeconomic area. The segregation in the swedish school system is made visable in the descriptions of the different conditions of each school library and it is difficult to disregard this inequality when it comes to school librarians working conditions and the effect that it might have on junior high school students reading and literacy in school.

    Abstract [en]

    Public libraries are mainly employing women and have female managers. According to theories based upon so-cial construction we create our roles together in our society. The role of a manager has for a long time been viewed as the role of a man. The objective of my thesis is to gain knowledge on how a few women that work as managers in public libraries perceive and describe their roles. A parallel aim is to let a few future librarians de-scribe their managers and their own views on leadership, with a focus on gender issues. My questions are the following, how do the women construct their roles as managers of public libraries?, how do the female students describe the role as a female manager of a public library, and their own managers?, can stereotype views and attributes be distinguished in my informants tales on leadership and gender?The starting point of this thesis is theories of social construction of Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann, the thought that we shape our world through social interaction, mainly through our language. The theories of Yvonne Hirdman, regarding gender power structure, offers the political backdrop for my thesis. Alice Eagly has re-searched around leader stereotypes, leadership styles and gender. From her and her peers I take with me theories that claim that the leader stereotype is gendered male.The material I have used to answer my questions are interviews with ten informants, all of them women working at public libraries, five of them managers and five students. I have conducted structured interviews with open questions that I have then looked at by means of a method where different factors are intertwined, mainly language, social situations, political factors and theory. All these then used to interpret the empirical evidence. The basis of the method is interpretation and reflection.I found that my informants construe an image of the role as a woman and a manager of a public library as a complex role that does not fall into one unambiguous gender stereotype. They describe their one manager roles and their managers with attributes and characteristics that in recent research has been assigned to both genders. I could nevertheless identify the use of strategies that according to Eagly et al is used by women in manager roles to prevent them from suffering negative criticism or other consequences solely because of the combination of their gender and position.
