Abstract [sv]

Forskare menar att mediers alltmer betydelsefulla roll i ungdomars liv kan bidra till att stärka och sprida fördomar om olika religioner. Det finns dock begränsad forskning om hur mediers skildringar av religioner och dess utövare kan hanteras i religionsundervisningen. Studien syftar således till att undersöka på vilket sätt  mediers skildringar av olika religioner och dess utövare hanteras i religionsundervisningen i årskurs 4-6. Studien är inspirerad av en fenomenologisk ansats och utgörs av semistrukturerade intervjuer med fem religionskunskapslärare i årskurs 4–6. Intervjuerna har spelats in, transkriberats och sedan analyserats med inspiration från en fenomenologisk analysmodell. Ur resultatet framkommer att alla lärare enbart diskuterar religiösa företeelser i medier som kopplas till islam, exempelvis IS terrordåd och den pågående flyktingkrisen. Studien visar också att lärarna inte använder sig av specifika tillvägagångssätt för att analysera mediers skildringar av religioner utan behandlas främst genom diskussioner med eleverna, där

diskussionerna inte enbart sker i religionsundervisningen. Lärarna är eniga om vikten av att diskutera mediers skildringar av religioner eftersom det annars finns risk för att eleverna generaliserar och relaterar alla muslimer till de våldsamma konflikter som skildras i medier idag.

Abstract [en]

The media's increasingly important role in young people's lives can according to scientists help to strengthen and spread prejudices about different religions. However, there is limited research on how media portrayals of religions and its practitioners can be handled in religious education.  The study thus seeks to examine how media portrayals of different religions and its practitioners are handled in religious education in grades 4-6. The study is inspired by a phenomenological approach and consists of semi-structured interviews with five religious teachers in grades 4–6. The interviews have been recorded, transcribed and then analyzed with inspiration from a phenomenological analysis model. The result shows that all teachers only discusses religious media phenomena linked to Islam, such as the IS terrorist attacks and the ongoing refugee crisis. The study also shows that the teachers do not use specific approaches for analyzing media depictions of religions, but is treated primarily through discussions with the pupils, where the discussions do not solely take place in religious education. Teachers agree on the importance of discussing the media´s portrayals of religion as otherwise there is a risk that students generalize and relate all Muslims for the violent conflicts depicted in the media today.
