Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to analyze subject positions given to case workers and elderly people within community-based elderly care in two different newspapers. The method used was discourse analysis, including tools such as categorization of discourses, transitivity and modality. The theoretical framework was built on a set of socio-political discourses. The findings of the study were largely in agreement with previous research, identifying a limited set of positions for both elderly and case workers. The former were mostly presented as either passive, bereft of rights and described by others, or as active users of community services. The latter were portrayed on the one hand as passive in relation to the users of community services and to their employers, and on the other hand as active government officials with a great deal of control and decision-making power towards elderly people. These positions are consistent primarily with individualized socio-political discourses.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att, i två olika dagstidningar, undersöka de subjektspostioner som tillhandahålls brukare och biståndshandläggare inom den kommunala äldreomsorgen. Diskursanalys var den metod som användes, med specifika analysverktyg som etablerande av diskursordning, transitivitet och modalitet. Teoretisk grund för studien utgjorde en uppsättning socialpolitiska diskurser. Studiens viktigaste resultat var i stort i överensstämmelse med tidigare forskning, och visade ett begränsat antal positioner för såväl brukare som handläggare. De förstnämnda framställdes som antingen passiva, berövade sina rättigheter och omtalade av andra eller som aktiva serviceanvändare. De senare framställdes som antingen passiva i relation till serviceanvändande brukare och sina arbetsgivare, eller som aktiva myndighetsutövare med kontroll och stor beslutsmakt. Dessa positioner överensstämmer i första hand med individorienterade socialpolitiska diskurser.
