Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study investigates how choice of education can affect the way you think sex and gender. Furthermore it investigates how gender categories can be dissolved through choice of education. The study is based on three individual interviews with three men studying to become nurses in Copenhagen. This education is highly dominated by female students. These interviews are analyzed through theory by Judith Butler concerning sex and gender, and through theory by R.W. Connell concerning masculinities. Through analysis and discussion it is being concluded that even though you choose an education dominated by one sex, like the three informers in this study did, it doesn’t affect the way you think sex and gender. This study finds that on the contrary the perception of gender and hegemonic masculinity can be reinforced by a person’s choice of education.
