"Race" is often used as a marker to exclude people from a society. What is interesting is not so much what terms that are used to describe people, but by what meaning they are associated with.

To trace changes in the discourse over time a comparative discourse analysis of 1964 and 2004 has been made. The methodological approach, both as a theory and method, has been the discourse analysis of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe. I have found that "race" matters, both in 1964 and in 2004, even if how it is significant has changed. Central is also that gender, class and sexuality shows impact on how "race" is portrayed during 1964 and 2004 in the Swedish daily magazine Sydsvenska Dagbladet. (Less)
