Abstract [en]

This thesis examines in which ways and how female authors in the fantasy-genre are being embodied in their authorship. It is done so through interviews of three published female authors working in the fantasy and/or science fiction genre and analysed with thematic analysis through the lense of Judith Butlers theory on the gender/sex distinction and performativity. The study shows how actors in the field act as gatekeepers by exclusion and how the authors negotiate their position as authors in the context of the fantasy/science fiction genre. The performative regulations of embodiment genders these authors to the extent of questioning the female authorship itself.
