Abstract
The aim and purpose of this study has been to examine how Swedish media portrays sick people and the discourses that are present doing that. I have used articles from Swedish newspapers, and to analyze this material I have used discourse analysis and the theory of social constructivism. I have used articles from several different publication years in order to enhance the quality of the material.
I have come to the conclusion that there were two different discourses that appeared most clearly in my material. Those discourses were the “cheat/overuse” and the “victim” discourse. Other conclusions are that the media often portrays sick people in a stereotypical and marginalized way.
