Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was that through discourse analysis look at how gender and the equality debate is created between two head debaters and commenter's on a forum. We have used Norbert Elias and John L. Scotson´s (1999) theory about Established and Outsiders to see power struggles between groups in the debate. With Jonathan Potters analysis tools in his book Representing Reality (1996) we were able to analyze the debate texts. Using discourse psychology, we were able to see how people use tactical discourse in their texts to represent themselves and the world in different ways. The texts we have looked at were articles written by our head debaters, Maria Sveland and Pär Ström who debate on equality. We completed the analysis of the articles with posts from the Internetforum Flashback concerning Pär Ström and equality. Our result showed that our agents were not debating anymore, instead the debate changed into a power struggle about the interpretation privilege. We observed that the head debaters separate worldviews and their methods of presentation of facts created extreme perceptions toward each other which represented something bigger.
