A fine line between selection and censorship : An analysis of the censorship debate 2012 regarding Tintin in the Congos (English)
Abstract [sv]

Vårt syfte med undersökningen har varit att analysera censurdebatten kring Tintin i Kongo från 2012. Med utgångspunkt från argumentet att barn måste skyddas från kontroversiell litteratur har vi framför allt varit intresserade av att förstå hur nyanser av debatten skapats genom den argumentation och det språkbruk som debattörerna har använt sig av.  

Teoretiska utgångspunkter: Dagordningsteori. Gestaltningsteori.

Frågeställningar:

  1. På vilka sätt är debatten kring Tintin, censur och barns förmåga att hantera kontroversiell litteratur intressant för vår förståelse av hur vi använder språk för att kommunicera?
  2. Vilka uttalar sig i debatten kring censuren av Tintin?
  3. Vilka argument används?
  4. Vilka är några vanligt förekommande teman i böcker för barn mellan 6-9 år 2017?

 

Metod: Vårt tillvägagångssätt för att kunna besvara frågorna har varit att använda oss av textanalys.

Material: Vi har till vår undersökning valt att analysera artiklar. Urvalet har skett från de två dagstidningarna Dagens Nyheter och Svenska Dagbladet och kvällstidningarna Aftonbladet och Expressen.

Resultat: Det gör skillnad vilka ord vi använder och hur. Ord är makt och avslöjar normer i samhället.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Our purpose with this study has been to analyze the debate regarding the attempt to ban Tintin in the Congos in 2012. With the starting-point being the argument made that children have to be protected from literature that is considered to be controversial, we’ve been interested in seeing how the nuances of the debate have been shaped by the use of arguments and language by those participating in the debate.

Theoretical points of departure: Agenda setting theory, Framing theory

Objectives and focus: The study has the following questions

  1. In what way is the debate surrounding Tintin in the Congos, censorship and children’s ability to handle literature considered controversial of interest in understanding how we use language to communicate?
  2. Who are the ones taking part in the debate regarding the ban of Tintin in the Congos?
  3. What are their arguments?
  4. What are some common themes presented in books aimed towards children between the ages of 6-9 2017?

 

Method: To answer our questions, we have analyzed our material through text analysis.

Material: We have for our questions analyzed articles. They have been selected both from the newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet as well as from the evening newspapers Aftonbladet and Expressen.

Result: Your words matter. It matters how and when we use them. Words are an expression of power and reveals the norms of society.
