Abstract [en]

This study aims to shows that children are subjected to several different and dominating discourses intersecting during so-called “free play” activities in preschool. The Swedish preschool discourse entails dominant gendered notions about how children are supposed to behave and therefore make available specific positions regarding femininity and masculinity. Even when girls and boys act in similar ways, they are strictly positioned and treated differently by their teachers. This is most likely caused by gendered expectations in relation to what teachers consider being normal behavior amongst girls and boys in terms of, for example, activity/aggression or passivity/submission (among other expectations). The male – female binary is thereby actively sustained. In spite of the fact that girls and boys take up a variety of positionings during free play, they are still described as two separate and homogeneous groups by their teachers. Girls are outlined and positioned as “passive” whereas boys are outlined and positioned as “active”. The possibilities of superseding the normalizing and gender-production are discussed.
