Summary, in English

The aim of this study is to map out the hierarchy that puts written literature first and causes movies to be overlooked in Swedish courses at upper secondary schools in Sweden. Students at upper secondary school consume more and more audio-visual entertainment and should therefore have more space in official documents of policies and grading. Therefore, this study defines where written literature and movies transfer knowledge between one another. A discourse analysis was placed on six Swedish course textbooks and semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten Swedish teachers to serve as data for this research. The findings were quite conclusive in the fact that movies generally were used to transfer knowledge onto a pre-existing literary counterpart, and there was also evidence to support that movies often were used for entertainment purposes where little, or no transfer was intended.
