Children cartoons: The influence on the development of gender identities

Are there gender stereotypes in children media discourse and how are they manifested? Are there children cartoons that deconstruct gender stereotypes? In her talk the author will try to analyse the interaction of language and gender within the critical discourse analysis of children media discourse. Putting the analysis in the theoretical context of Social Learning Theory and Gender Schema Theory, the author will prove the analysed contents to be important for the learning of aschematic gender roles for the children of preschool age. Within “linguistics with consciousness and aim“ the author is trying to make everybody realise the importance of the TV messages aimed at children.
