Title Zlatans betydelse för barn i Rosengård
Author Österström, Ola ; Nilsson, Björn
Date 2008
English abstract
Our study describes how much influence and importance Zlatan Ibrahimovic has on a part of Malmö called Rosengård where he himself grew up. We made interviews with 16 children in the ages of six to ten. The theoretic views applied in this study come from Robert Connell’s Notions of masculinity and William Corsaro’s Sociology of childhood. The questions we answer in this study are; if Zlatan has any influence on the children in Rosengård? How do children and media look at Zlatan and the myth that surrounds him? How does the picture of Zlatan Ibrahimovic get constructed amongst the children? How does hegemonic masculinity present itself amongst the peer-cultures of the children in Rosengård? Our study shows that Zlatan has no influence amongst the children we interviewed. But he is still a legend and people talk about him often in the local community. We found out that media has a major influence on the children, and because of all the negative articles of Zlatans inability to score in the Swedish national team, creates a view on Zlatan that is everything but positive.
