“Our family has people who take out the garbage for us. We do not have to do it by ourselves. ” : A multimodal critical discourse analysis of class representations and power relations in the series Quicksand from an intersectional perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

Social classes have been existing in Swedish society in a couple of centuries and even today there are obvious class markers in Swedish society. Despite the existence of social classes today we discuss less about class. In every human relation there are always power relations.  To be able to emphasise class markets and power relations in Swedish society this study will be using a case, which is the series Quicksand. The series Quicksand takes place in a county town outside of Stockholm. The fundamental narrative is about why the main character Maja Norberg has been involved in a school shooting.

 

When analysing both class and power relations the intersectional intercommunion is commonly used. Consequently, the intersectional perspective has a big role in this study. This study is based on a feminist theoretical framework and the case is analysed with the multimodal critical discourse analysis method. The questions that we use to analyse the material are “How are the class distinction and the power relations framed from an intersectional perspective in Quicksand?”, “How are the characters’ relation to power and how does it move between them?” and “How are the power positions affected due to the characters’ gender and ethnicity?”

 

The analysis of this study shows that class distinctions and power relations are reflected in settings, attribute and lexical choices. The most common intersectional intercommunion was between class and ethnicity. Which of the characters may be due to class, gender, knowledge or ownership of a product that someone else is dependent on.

The end discussion shows that the intersectional concurrence can both be an advantage or a disadvantage among the characters. The power relations are constructed in different ways and there are always an aspirations and combat to be in power. The class differences are pointed out in Quicksand. There are some characters that will keep the class distinction and there are characters that want to live in a classless society.
