My research concerns the concept of active citizenship and how it is prescribed in the curriculum regarding upper secondary school in Sweden. My focus is on social science education and the fundamental values expressed in the national curriculum. My curiousness is directed at an upper secondary school with high social and cultural status. On this school ideal of the supreme is manifested in many ways and when this ideal meets the egalitarian values of the curriculum a paradox is created. The pupils way to make an existence in a field of contradictions is what I am studying. I am working with theories of alienation, power, knowledge, status, hierarchies and privileges to make sense of the pupil’s ways to deal with their situation.
