The debates regarding En bok för alla 1992 and 2007 : a discourse analysis (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master’s thesis is to describe and compare the debates regarding the public funded publishing company En bok för alla (EBFA). On two occasions, 1992 and 2007, the public funding was threatened, which lead to debates and protests. The funding was revoked in 2007. I want to examine if by studying a particular product of cultural policy, one can se tendencies to how the cultural policy in whole change over time. Using a discourse analysis I will be able to distinguish and analyze how the debates were designed, and which discursive formations one can discern in the debates. The study is based upon articles in newspapers and political documents. The analyze shows that the debate of 1992 focuses on legitimating EBFA with economical arguments. Almost all statements from the period are in favor of a continued funding. The debate of 2007 focuses on the changed book market and whether there was room for a public funded company. In 1992 there was hegemony in the debate, limiting what actors could say about EBFA. In 2007 this hegemony was starting to come apart, opening up for new ways to talk about cultural policy. In 1992 there were no struggles about defining important terms, which could be seen in the debate of 2007. The revoke of the public funding to EBFA can be seen as a neo liberal formation taking place in Swedish cultural policy.
