Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att belysa hur media, i form av lokaltidningen Länstidningen, porträtterar socialtjänsten i Södertälje kommun. För att besvara syftet utgick vi från en kritisk diskursanalys där vi använde verktyg från Faircloughs tredimensionella modell för att analysera språkbruket i tidningsartiklarna. Utifrån våra huvudresultat kunde vi urskilja fyra diskurser, samverkansdiskursen, ekonomidiskursen, diskursen om arbetssätt och rutiner samt arbetsmiljödiskursen. Vi tog även hjälp av socialkonstruktionismen som teori för att sätta in diskurserna i ett större sammanhang. Resultatet visade på ett relativt konsekvent språkbruk och utmärkande var att beskrivningar om socialtjänstens arbetssätt och rutiner ofta utelämnades, i kombination med att fakta och bakgrundsinformation sällan förekom. Överlag kunde vi urskilja en ensidig och negativ rapportering om socialtjänsten.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe how media, in the form of a local newspaper Länstidningen, portrays social services in Södertälje. To fulfill the purpose we took as our point of departure a critical discourse analysis where we used tools from Faircloughs three-dimensional model to analyse the language used in the newspaper articles. Based on our main results, we were able to distinguish four discourses, the collaborative discourse, the financial discourse, the discourse on working methods and routines and the discourse of work environment. We also took help of social constructionism as the theory to contextualize the discourses. The results showed a relatively consistent use of language and what was prominent was that descriptions of the social services' working methods and routines were often omitted, in combination with the fact that facts and background information seldom occurred. Overall, we were able to distinguish one-sided and negative reporting on social services.
