Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This study examines how gender and sexuality is discursively constructed by teachers who teaches sex education in the Danish schools and how they understand their and the school's role in teaching students in sexual subjects. This study uses theory by Michel Foucault and Judith Butler. Furthermore, the study uses empirical data consisting of two qualitative interviews with two teachers, who have been teaching sex education in Danish schools. The empirical data is analyzed using the method of discourse psychology developed by Jonathan Wetherell and Margaret Potter. The study discusses how the teachers’ constructions of gender and sexuality is very inconsistent and that these constructions play an important role in the teachers’ focusses on what is important to teach the students. Furthermore, it discusses the responsibility of the school in providing sex education.
