Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur hockeyfältet gör skillnad mellan kön och vidare undersöka hur genus görs inom hockey. Detta genom kvalitativa intervjuer med tränare samt genom observationer av spelare i blandlag. Skillnader som fältet gör gäller främst resursfördelning och regelskillnader mellan tjejer och killar samt en uppdelning av könen i olika lag efter en viss ålder och nivå. Skillnader görs även med utgångspunkt i sexualitet utifrån en heterosexuell norm. Hur genus görs av tränare är främst genom förväntningar och föreställningar om agerande, vilka förklaras utifrån biologiskt kön, och genom föreställningar om kvinnlighet och manlighet samt genom spelares agerande utifrån dessa förväntningar och föreställningar. Genus konstrueras av tränare och spelare genom en uppfattning om heterosexualitet som norm inom fältet, genom sexism, homofobi och homosocialitet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine how the ice-hockey field creates a difference between females and males, and further on analyze how gender is constructed in the game of ice-hockey. The research is based on qualitative interviews with coaches and observations of mixed-gender ice-hockey teams. The differences between genders that are constructed by the field are mostly shown through the distribution of financial resources and regulatory differences between girls and boys, as well as through the separation of the sexes into different teams based on their age and level. Differences are also constructed on the basis of sexuality, originated from a heterosexual norm. Gender is also constructed by coaches that often form expectations and beliefs of a player’s performance based on their biological sex, which involves expectations of femininity and masculinity. Gender is also constructed by coaches and players based on an assumption of the heterosexual norm within the field shown through sexism, homophobia and homosociality.
