Film för konstens skull : kvantitativ och kvalitativ undersökning i Svenska Filminstitutets filmhandledningar i förhållande till svenskämnets filmkunskap


  • Johan Malmgren

Summary, in English

This study intends to find the priorities presented by the Swedish Film Institute in its guidance material for teachers and what these priorities say about the role of film education within Swedish schools in general and the subject of Swedish in particular. This is done via two methods, the first covers a large selection of study material, and the second does a close reading on a smaller selection. The latter method also studies the materials' ability to teach the concepts of multimodality, literacy, and the expanded text concept. The study found that while the Swedish Film Institute's teaching materials contain a significant amount of knowledge that are solely film theory in nature, these are often under-prioritized in favour of using the film as a tool to teach the basic values and subject knowledge. Furthermore, this study finds that an expansion in film theory is possible within the current curriculum through the development of work with literacy and multimodality.
