Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur ungdomars identitetsskapande påverkas ur ett stigmatiserat bostadsområde. Vi har därför utrett hur ungdomar upplever den mediala framställningen av bostadsområdet, därtill hur det kan inverka på deras identitetsskapande. Metoden baserades på en kvalitativ ansats där sex ungdomar har intervjuats från Stockholms förort Husby. Teorier som har tillämpats i vår analys var Goffmans stigma teori, Ristilammis förortsdiskurs samt en teoretisering av ”vi” och ”dem”. Med dessa tillämpningar kunde vi identifiera hur ett stigmatiserat bostadsområde upprätthåller och konstruerar ungdomars identitetskapande.Sammanfattningsvis tydde resultatet på att våra respondenter i förorten Husby var medvetna om den stigmatiserande bilden som deras förort beskrivs som. Dock skildes deras egen uppfattning av området i jämförelse med den tillskrivna. Ungdomarna var medvetna om det negativa anseendet av sin ort, men vi uppmärksammade att gemenskapen överväger denna negativitet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how youth identity formation can be influenced by a stigmatized neighborhood. Therefore, we investigated how young people experience the medial representation of the residential area, and how it may affect their identity formation. The method was based on a qualitative approach where six young people were interviewed from the suburb Husby near Stockholm.Theories that have been applied in our analysis were Goffman's stigma theory, Ristilammis suburb discourse and a theory of “us and “them”. With these applications, we were able to identify how a stigmatized residential maintains and constructs youth identity formation.In summary, the results indicated that our respondents in the suburb of Husby were aware of the stigmatized image of their suburban is described. However differenced theirs own perception of the area in comparison with the assigned. The young people were concerned about the negative reputation of their location (suburb), but we noticed that the affinity outweighs this negativity.
