Decoding genders stereotypes in comics: (Master thesis)

Μαρτίνη, Νικολέτα/ Martini, Nikoleta

The present thesis deals with the research and the promotion of gender stereotypes within Asterix comicsseries as well as with the enhancement of preschool children’s critical literacy through its utilization. The sample of the research was the first thirty-three (33) issues of the comics series. The methodological tool used for the conduction of the qualitative survey was comics’ semantic analysis, which is considered among the most modern. The analysis of the female representations in the stories uses indicative examples and has been based on four axes: 1) the verbal and non-verbal communication of the women amongst them and also with men, 2) womens’ external appearance and their gestures, 3) the position of the women in the comics’ frames in action scenes and 4) the role of the women as overall presence within the plot of each story. Finally, indicative activities for preschool children critical literacy enhancement are proposed.
