Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Uppsatsen behandlar sociala och ekonomiska ojämlikheter som framkommer i svenska hiphoplåtar. Den valda metoden i uppsatsen utgår från Norman Faircloughs kritiska diskursanalys då den lägger fokus på den textuella aspekten av en text. Genom att stu-dera diskurser i musiken så studeras presentationen av ojämlikheter. Faircloughs kri-tiska teori kompletteras med Iris Marion Youngs teori om kulturell dominans och an-vänds för att belysa dominansskillnader mellan grupper. Skillnaderna i dominans mellan grupperna ges uttryck genom att diskurser används av grupper för att förtrycka andra grupper. Resultatet visade på att ekonomiska aspekter fick omfattande utrymme i alla texter då det var det problem som de andra problemen förhöll sig till.... (More)

Resultatet visade på att ekonomiska aspekter fick omfattande utrymme i alla texter då det var det problem som de andra problemen förhöll sig till. Dålig ekonomi antyddes vara anslutet till kriminellt beteende, och etnicitet vara nära kopplat till eko-nomi och sociala möjligheter (Less)
