Thesis: Gender representation in School Manuals Primary Education of the Estado Novo

ESAD

  • The present dissertation aims to analyse textbooks of the Estado Novo, more precisely the individual editions, created as a means of spreading dictatorial ideologies. This analysis aims to understand how those objects, used over a long period of time and passed from generation to generation, convey messages regarding the distinction between being a man and being a woman. It is intended to understand what the information disseminated, which were the distinctions between genders and how it influenced the Portuguese society, which, by living side by side with these objects, was shaped by them.This study aims to provide a political, historical and social context for these books, then moving to the observation and analysis of the visual representation of gender, manifest in the illustrations. Given that Communication Design can be a means of observation and reflection, we seek to understand how it interfered in societies more precisely through the use of the image. Lastly, and as a vital part in this work, we will analyse the images of the individual editions of the first, second and third grades in order to create a categorization based on theoretical foundations, that may allow us to take meaningful conclusions about the social construction of gender in the given period.
