Abstract

The overall aim of the study presented in this book is to explore how Religious Education was constructed in practice in a contemporary Swedish pluralistic context. How, then, could this goal be achieved? And what is a school subject in practice? What is possible to observe of a subject in a classroom? Since the interest of this study specifically concerns the expressions of a school subject in practice, it was apparent early on in the processes involved in carrying it out that the empirical data collected would concern classroom events, focusing on the interactions between students, teachers and the subject’s content. In this chapter the methodological considerations made in the study are presented as well as the theoretical approaches of analyses.
