    Den ständigt avvikande förorten: Medias diskriminering av förorten Andersberg2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The emerging Swedish suburbs of the 1960- 1970s started out as a utopian vision: a new city for the modern people. Media presented a different view and emphasized the inhuman livingenvironment and the social problems of the suburbs. Nationwide there have been local attempts to avoid this negative publicity by adjusting identified suburban problems. Due to medial presentation the suburbs are still associated with segregation, criminality and social problems. The presentation of suburbs and immigrants affects not only the process of integration and the general public idea of integration processes, but also the individual perception of themselves and their living. Media have opened on to a collective discrimination of the neighborhood and its inhabitants. This essay aim to contribute to the understanding of how identities arise and are maintained when people are associated with certain geographical spaces, that is suburbs. The majority of the Swedish study of suburban discrimination and segregation takes place in the periphery off ocused on Andersberg, a suburb in a smaller city called Halmstad. It is a typical high-rise, concrete suburb with a high density of immigrants and unemployment. This essay has studied the power structures in the language regarding Andersberg, to discover the discriminating construction of suburban otherness. A postcolonial perspective illustrates how the perception of the suburb and its inhabitants is constructed as in the Swedish society. Discrimination and segregation is a result of the general public perception of the suburban inhabitants as criminal, uncivilized and patriarchal.
