Abstract
People has always had a tendency to pigeonhole their fellow human beings into "we" and "they". "They", or the Other, could fx consist of colored, women, homosexuals or Jews. Those Others have then been disregarded, exploited or otherwise been treated badly. This can also be seen in literature, where science fiction (SF) constitutes no exception. Within the realm of the SF genre, additional Others appear, which do not exist in our world or in the realistic literature, like aliens and robots. This work investigates the relation to, and the view of, Others - especially the non-realistic ones - in some danish SF stories. The results of the investigation were that some Others were viewed with fear and some rather neutrally, but only very few... (More)

Popular Abstract (Danish)
Mennesker har i alle tider vist stor tilbøjelighed til at inddele sine medmennesker i henholdsvis "vi" og "de". "De" eller de Andre, eller de fremmede, har kunnet udgøres af fx farvede, kvinder, homoseksuelle eller jøder. Disse Andre har man så ofte foragtet, udnyttet, eller på andet vis behandlet dårligt. Dette forhold kan også ses i litteraturens verden, hvor science fiction (SF) ikke udgør nogen undtagelse. Indenfor SF-genren tilkommer der dog yderlige Andre, der ikke ses i vores verden eller i realistisk litteratur, som fx aliens og robotter.

Indenfor SF-genren tilkommer der dog yderlige Andre, der ikke ses i vores verden eller i realistisk litteratur, som fx aliens og robotter. I dette arbejde har forholdet til, og synet på, de Andre - især de ikke-realistiske - i nogle danske SF-historier blevet undersøgt. Undersøgelsen viste at nogle af de Andre betragtedes med frygt og andre temmelig neutralt, men kun nogen enkelte med foragt. Kvinder, der dog ikke tydeligt udgjorde de Andre, havde imidlertid bare anden rangs roller i næsten alle historierne. Der var også en vis korrelation mellem hvor tydelige "vi"- og "de"-grupper der var, og hvor samfundskritisk historien var. (Less)
