    Myndighetsattityder: En ethosanalys av Delegationen för romska frågor2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The Authorities attitudes towards Gypsies have been characterized by prejudice for a long time. This has lead to the relief actions of the Authorities being formed by discriminating acts. In purpose of eliminating the discrimination of the Gypsies, the Delegation for Gypsy matters formulated a strategy for solving this problem in the report “Gypsy rights – a strategy for Gypsies in Sweden”. Despite the goodwill of the Authorities this report has been criticized by Gypsies in Sweden.

     

    In the investigation of the derivation of this criticism the aim of this essay is to look at how the Authorities attitude towards Gypsies is shown in this report and how it affects the creation of their ethos. This analysis is made with a Critical Linguistic Analysis and the Stasis Theory. 

     

    The result showed that the Delegation for Gypsy matters dissociate themselves from the former attitudes that characterized the Authorities view of Gypsies. Through this move they try to show solidarity with them. Despite this equality aim it is possible to make note of an authoritative touch that imply a view of a society where the power is distributed from the top to the bottom. Even the picture of the Gypsies as a weak group can be noted.

    I am digital: En kvalitativ studie om unga kvinnors upplevelse av att ha ett digitalt jag2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Det övergripande syftet med denna uppsats är att försöka förstå hur unga kvinnor upplever att ha ett digitalt jag på den sociala medieplattformen Facebook. För att få en förståelse av deras upplevelse har jag valt att dela upp teoriavsnittet i två större delar. Den första delen syftar på att förklara konsekvenserna av att leva i en värld som präglas av medier. Utgångspunkten ligger i McLuhans välkända begrepp ”The medium is the message” (1964/2001) för att förstå hur de nya sociala medierna blir en förlängning av den egna fysiska kroppen och Thompsons interaktionstyper (1995/2001).

    Det andra teoriavsnittet behandlar hur man kan försöka förstå människors upplevelse av att leva i en värld som präglas av medier. Här har jag valt att utgå från Sherry Turkles teorier (1995/1997) om hur Internet har blivit en plats där människor kan laborera med olika konstruktioner av jaget. Jag har valt att komplettera detta med Jenny Sundéns teorier i hennes avhandling Material virtualities (2002) samt med fenomenologin som avser att studera upplevelsen av ett fenomen.

    Den fenomenologiska metoden använder sig av kvalitativa undersökningar och jag har i min studie utfört fem kvalitativa, semistrukturerade intervjuer med unga kvinnor mellan 24-30 år.

    Resultatet av undersökningen visar att unga kvinnor upplever sitt digitala jag som en förlängning av det verkliga jaget, men även begränsat då Facebook endast återger en begränsad bild av jaget. Det fanns även en medvetenhet kring att de framställde det egna jaget positivt genom att de var selektiva i vilken information de publicerade om sig själva. Detta påverkade också tilltron till andras digitala jag.

    Vidare upplevde kvinnorna att de till viss mån var begränsade i kommunikationen på Facebook i relation till kommunikationen ansikte mot ansikte. Facebook upplevdes dels som ett fysiskt rum där de kunde vara (med sina sinnen). Det framkom också att kvinnorna upplevde att detta rum hade en egen tid som fortlöpte även då de själva inte var där.

    Abstract [en]

    This roundtable discussion draws together researchers with an interest of overcoming purely juridical treatment of piracy in their work. Christopher Kelty and Gabriella Coleman consider the aspects of cyberculture, which conflictually engage with intellectual property rights, through various communities of technology practice, including hackers. Patricia Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi’s work on fair use addresses the growing opportunities for creators in the United States to utilize the tradition in their creative fields. Jonas Andersson Schwarz and Patrick Burkart, co-editors of this special issue, have researched user motivations and political activism around copyright and software patent reforms, partially explaining the emergence of dozens of European Pirate Parties, beginning with the Swedish Pirates in 2006.

    Participatory Culture: How Social Media Active Journalists Make Use of the Medium2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    As new platforms are developed for communicating, the everyday lives of many are changedat the grounds. The aim with this study was to map the changes in routines when it comes tojournalists making news and communicating with their readers, audience and sources after theintroduction of social media in their work process. By making a qualitative study analyzinglogbooks and interviews of a handful of responding journalists I tried to find what thethoughts were behind the routines of the journalistic work process and why and how they’vechanged. The most obvious change this research has found was that the speed of today’s flowof information has made an impact on both how the respondents gather information andregard their sources. My research is in many ways complimentary to earlier research madewith the same starting point but the findings are a bit different. While my research shows thatthe dialog between producer and consumer is increasing and is sought after, other studies havefailed to make this conclusion.

    JOURNALISTS' USING FACEBOOK TO CLAIM THE TERRITORY, BRAG OR CRY IN DESPERATION FOR HELP: A CONTENT ANALYSIS OF A NORDIC JOURNALISTIC RESOURCE GROUP ON FACEBOOK2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    On Facebook there are interest groups created by journalists, for journalists, that focus on the journalistic profession and work methods. One example is the Swedish group, "Datajournalistik" (in English, "Data Journalism") created in 2012. The group has grown to more than 1,000 Nordic members, most of whom are active data journalists working primarily at Swedish media companies. This article builds on Granovetter's theory on the strength of weak ties. A content analysis of all posts with comments has been carried out to discuss tie strength in relation to information sharing and addressivity in the group. The findings indicate that Datajournalistik forms a network where the individuals are mainly connected by weak ties. Another conclusion is that the group has a function in developing data journalistic competence, but it also functions as means for journalists to promote Nordic data journalistic work in their community giving others credit while at the same time taking some of the credit for oneself.

    The Reasons Behind Tracing Audience Behavior: A Matter of Paternalism and Transparency2017Inngår i: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 11, s. 2178-2197Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes privacy agreement texts and cookie consent information collected from 60 news sites in three countries (U.S., UK, and Sweden) within the context of paternalism. The goal of this study is to explore how paternalism is present in news media companies’ stated reasons for collecting behavioral data. Twenty-five categories of reasons were identified and divided into six categories: personalization and enhanced user experience, delivery and maintenance of services, internal and corporate use of data, legal reasons, communication with the user, and third-party use of data. The analysis shows that the reasons can be formulated in both paternalistic and nonpaternalistic ways, and that the market-driven logic of Web analytics seems to collide with ethics in a journalistic context.

    Data Journalism In Sweden: Introducing new methods and genres of journalism into “old” organizations2014Inngår i: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082X, Vol. 2, nr 3, s. 394-405Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Data journalism is an evolving form of investigative journalism. In previous research andhandbooks published on this topic, this form of journalism has been called computer-assistedreporting and data-driven journalism, as well as precision, computational or database journalism.In Sweden, data journalism is still fairly uncommon. The purpose of this paper is to providean overview of the development of data journalism at seven Swedish traditional mediacompanies, using action research methods. The content of this paper is based on an onlinesurvey of journalists and in-depth interviews with editors at these participating companies. Theresults indicate that, based on how this field is currently perceived by journalists in the interviews,there is a common definition of data journalism. Furthermore, the survey shows thatthe attitudes towards data journalism during the process of introducing new methods andgenres of journalism into “old” organizations are correlated with the level of perceived experiencein data journalism working methods. The main challenges facing the working methodsof data journalism today are a shortage of time and the need for training and developingdata journalism skills.

    The Promise of the Transparency Culture: A comparative study of access to public data in Spanish and Swedish newsrooms2018Inngår i: Journalism Practice, ISSN 1751-2786, E-ISSN 1751-2794, Vol. 12, nr 8, s. 986-996Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2013, with the introduction of the Transparency Law in Spain, a number of Spanish newsrooms started working with data journalism methods. In Sweden, which has one of the oldest Freedom of Information acts in the world, newsrooms invested in the skill development of data journalism at approximately the same time. Because previous research suggests that access to public data has been one of the key driving forces for the development of data journalism worldwide, it is important to understand how legislation is actually shaping the practice of data journalism. Based on a survey of 66 key informants in Spain and Sweden and ten in-depth interviews with data journalists from five media companies in each country, we conducted a comparative study, building on the frameworks of media systems to explore data journalism practices in these two countries. The differences found indicate that the national and EU legislation in both nations shape journalistic strategies for accessing data, turning journalists at times into activists fighting for the right to access public data. Beyond the law, data journalists advocate for a transparency culture among the civil servants, in order to secure public accountability.

    Sverigedemokraternas kriskommunikation i samband med ”järnrörsskandalen”: Att inta en offerposition2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how the Swedish nationalistic political party Sverigedemokraterna communicates regarding the crisis they experienced when the Swedish newspaper Expressen published a few video clips of three, in that time, highly important party members that got in an argument after a late night of drinking. Two of the party members were at the time of the publication the members of the Swedish parliament and all of them had important senior positions in the party. In the argument one of the party members used abusive, offensive, sexist and racist language while all acted threatening and even armed themselves with iron bars from a nearby construction site.The aim of this paper is to examine how the party Sverigedemokraterna conducts their crisis communication, if they apologies and the fashion of the apology. A press conference with the party leader and the most active user of abusive language and also an interview with the second member of parliament who is involved in the argument are studied. The rhetorical arena is used to describe and pinpoint the most important stakeholders in the crisis. Hearits structure “from wrongdoing to absolution” is used to describe the crisis and it’s context. Benoits apologiastrategies and Hearits requirements for an ethical apologia are used to describe and assess the crisis communication and apologia at the press conference and interview.The paper concludes that the individuals who communicate the apologia use different strategies. The party leaders focus is towards the future and corrective actions while claiming not to have all the necessary information. The other two party members portray themselves as victims. One of them apologizes while the other only acknowledges wrongdoing without apologizing. They all acknowledge wrongdoing.

    Att berätta historia: En studie om museers verksamhet2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 poäng / 22,5 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to look at how museums design their activities as tourist destinations through the dissemination of history. In order to research this problem we have posed the following questions: How do museums act in order to animate and interpret history? What does the future hold for the museums? In order to find the answers to these questions we have made a deep-going analysis of the activities of four museums, Nordiska Museet, Etnografiska Museet, Historiska Museet and Naturhistoriska Museet. These museums have been analyzed by means of interviews, observations and the study of documents. Our theoretical perspective is informed by a hermeneutic perspective as well as Foucault´s definition of museums as institutions, and the concept of storytelling. Our conclusions are as follows: Museums have progressed from an Enlightenment ideal to a more post-modern approach, which means that they want to activate the visitors and make them reflect and form their own opinion by presenting different versions of the past that will stimulate imagination. Our belief is that this trend will continue and the museums will become even more oriented towards creative tourism at the same time as they will protect their position as vehicles and creators of knowledge and guardians of the Swedish cultural heritage. Unfortunately a growing centralization of the field is working in the direction of limiting the range of offers and restricting the museums´ potential to offer different versions of the past.

    Håkan Juholt och Skavlan: En uppsats om pratshowens möjligheter och begränsningar för partiledare i förtroendekris2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the appearance of Håkan Juholt, former party leader of the swedish social democratic party, in the norwegian/swedish talk show Skavlan, during Juholt’s crisis of confidence in the autumn of 2011. In this appearance it is clear that Juholt is badly treated by the host Fredrik Skavlan, and his guest, writer and journalist Linn Ullmann, while the audience seems to applaud and laugh at Skavlans and Ullmanns criticisms.

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate how, and why Juholt is treated in this way, and which rhetorical strategies Skavlan and Ullmann employ to create community between them selves and their audience. To understand this occurrence it is important to study Juholt’s rhetorical situation, and which conditions his lack of confidence creates for his appearance in Skavlan. Thus, I will perform two comparative analyses, by using cluster criticism, on one hand on how Juholt was spoken of in the media, and on the other hand on how Juholt is spoken of in his appearance in Skavlan. The goal of the first analysis is to determine how Aftonbladet are valuing Juholt, and how Aftonbladet are framing the ethos of Juholt. The goal of the second analysis is to identify how Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt, versus how Juholt is valuing himself. The purpose in doing this way is to identify a pattern, a common denominator, on how Juholt was framed in Aftonbladet and how Skavlan and Ullmann are responding to Juholt. This would show that Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt the same way as Aftonbladet did, i.e. negatively, and that their valuation are a result of Aftonbladets framing of Juholt, while Juholt is valuing himself positively.

    The results show a pattern in that both Aftonbladet and subsequently Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt negatively, and that both Skavlan and Ullmann are treating Juholt with suspicion and distance. First of all, the results show the persuasive effect Aftonbladet’s framing on Juholt had on Skavlan’s and Ullmann’s way in relating to Juholt. Secondly, the results show Juholt’s inability to adapt his communication to the situational constraints that surrounds both his crisis of confidence and the talk show as a medium. Thirdly, the results point to humour as an important rhetorical strategy to achieve identification and differentiation. Finally, this essay points to the talk show’s role as an admittedly important platform for consensus-building politicians, however, this requires an understanding of the rhetorical situation, and which cultural constraints that are inherent in both the audiences’ expectations on talk shows as a medium, and the host’s attempt at making an entertaining programme.

    Mellan digitala och fysiska världar: En utredning av immersionens och realismens retorik i kommersiella datorspel2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis examines commercial video games and their relation to the concept of immersion and realism. Games as a communicative medium is quite a new area of interest within rhetorical research in Sweden. Most of the research conducted has, however, been focused on gaming and formation on opinion – games that explicitly tries to persuade the player, unlike commercial games that focus on entertainment, that is. But that does not mean that commercial games cannot influence us. From time to time we can read about video games in the press and the discussions they generate. Most recently, China has banned the Swedish video game Battlefield 4 when Chinese government officials was claiming that the game portrays the Chinese military in an unfair manner. Thus we seem to ascribe meaning to the things that happen to us in the digital world, and that what happens in the digital world also has effects in the physical world, which the example clearly implies. With all the advanced gaming consoles today, I often find that game journalists and game developers in many contexts are talking about realism and immersion as two concepts that make up a good gaming experience. But what is realism and immersion: what does it mean and how do they relate to each other, and what kind of rhetorical impact do they really have on the player in the game?

    Although there is more research about commercial games and rhetoric in an international context, there is no one to my knowledge that has been exploring the concept of immersion and realism in games in this way. In this essay I argue that it is crucial to understand immersion and realism in order to fully understand the video game medium and its persuasive aspects. By examining three popular games Battlefield 4, Grand theft auto V, and The last of us, and by applying the theories of Nelson Goodman and Kenneth Burke to my examination, my aim is to increase the understanding of the effect of realism and immersion in games.

    I find that there are several ways that rhetoric can help us in understanding the two concepts. Both realism and immersion could be seen as something that enables the creation of identification within the realms of gaming. My suggestion is that we should understand realism as something that is enabled by the use of symbols and that it is enabled through the use of procedures in gaming. While my other suggestion is to perceive immersion as something that transfer the player from the couch and into the game world through argumentation and narrative. Both realism and immersion is something that make the player feel that he or she is one with the characters, the events and the story in the game.

    När vi lider med De andra: En jämförande studie av medierapporteringen om naturkatastroferna i Haiti och Pakistan 20102011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie jämför rapporteringen om naturkatastroferna i Haiti och Pakistan år 2010. Syftet är att förstå hur Svenska Dagbladet och Dagens Nyheter har prioriterat och gestaltat respektive lands katastrof vilket i sin tur skapar en bild av nationens ställning som offer.221 artiklar ligger till grund för mätning av utrymme och placering, varpå 72 artiklar analyserades mer ingående med hjälp av kvantitativ innehållsanalys för att ta fram viktiga aspekter i gestaltningen. Huvudsakliga aspekter var Lidande människor, de Skyldiga och Räddaren.Utifrån teorier om Agenda-Setting fann vi stöd för de resultat vi fann angående utrymme och prioritering. Compassion Fatigue och synen på Vi som en västerländsk norm och De Andra fick stå som teoretisk grund för hur journalister skapar medkänsla hos läsaren för att öka intresset för nyheten.Resultatet visar att katastrofen i Haiti var den som prioriterades högst. Det på grund av att medier prioriterar plötsliga händelser framför långsamma och att Haiti utifrån ett västerländskt perspektiv hade en högre nationell status som offer än Pakistan. Studien visar även att ett fåtal döda har högre nyhetsvärde än ett flertal antal sjuka och skadade människor.

    Kundrelationer via digitala medier2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Internets framväxt har medfört att allt fler företag väljer att bedriva större delar av sin verksamhet via Internet. Denna utveckling har medfört nya möjligheter för företag att kommunicera med sina kunder men har även förändrat förutsättningarna för kommunikation. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur researrangörer skapar och bevarar goda kundrelationer via digitala medier. Uppsatsen syftar även till att undersöka hur kunder uppfattar researrangörernas satsningar på digitala medier. Studieobjektet i denna uppsats är researrangören X, som har erfarenhet av att arbeta med att skapa och bevara goda kundrelationer via digitala medier. De modeller och teorier som uppsatsen utgår ifrån är relaterade till det valda ämnet och behandlar bland annat kommunikation, värdeskapande och kundrelationer.

    Empirin i denna uppsats baseras på en intervju med vd:n för researrangören X, en enkätundersökning samt en granskning av företagets hemsida. Resultaten av undersökningarna visar att de nya förutsättningarna för kommunikation medför krav på nya satsningar inom området. I dagsläget bokar en stor del av svenska folket sina semesterresor via Internet, en förutsättning för detta är att researrangörernas hemsidor måste vara utvecklade och väl fungerande för att underlätta bokningsprocessen för kunderna. För att skapa och bevara goda kundrelationer via digitala medier är det oerhört viktigt för researrangörer att bland annat individualisera kundrelationerna för att på så sätt skapa återkommande och lojala kunder. Det är även viktigt att som researrangör sträva efter att skapa och bibehålla en interaktion med kunderna för att skapa en kontinuerlig relation. Uppsatsen presenterar tydliga tecken på att arbetet med att skapa och bevara goda kundrelationer är en löpande process som ständigt måste utvecklas och förnyas.

    I Voxnabruk i Hälsingland vågar folk inte släppa ut sina barn i skogen av rädsla för vargattacker. Samtidigt arbetar andra med att skydda den svenska vargstammen. Varför berör vargen så många, så innerligt? Hur är det egentligen att ha vargen nära - runt knuten - eller i hjärtat?

    Examining Garden Blogs as a Communication System2012Inngår i: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, nr 6, s. 2758-2779Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The blogosphere supports an interpersonal meaning production process by providing the space and opportunities for communication through the circulation and discussion oftopics. Using systems theory, as developed by Niklas Luhmann, I explore how garden bloggers issue invitations to communicate by studying their selection process from all possible entries and images. I examine the selection criteria for posting an entry and especially look at Swedish and German garden blogs to study “ordinary” people’s relations in the blogosphere from the perspective of sharing opinions, impressions, and emotions about their garden environment. As a result, the selection criteria of novelty, values, identification, conflicts, visuality, and sociality are revealed. A communicative culture of approval, admiration, and respect, which promotes emotional ties and strengthens the feeling of common concerns in the blogosphere, is noticeably present.

    Connecting the Local and the Global in Journalism Education2011Inngår i: INTED2011 Proceedings: 5th International Technology, Education and Development ConferenceValencia, Spain. 7-9 March, 2011, Valencia: IATED Academy , 2011, s. 6326-6332Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is looking into efforts made to introduce local-global connections within journalist programs at Södertörn University in Stockholm. This University was a pioneer in multimedia journalism education when founded 15 years ago. New Information Technology is a part of a globalization process and it has had wide impact on the development of mass media practices in all societies. Technical multimedia skills are today central to advanced journalism education at universities. Globalization has in that sense colored journalism programs For instance is multimedia journalism at Södertörn University one of the most popular journalism university programs in Sweden.However, very little space in journalism education is given to knowledge about and skills in covering different aspect of globalization. News coverage of processes and events outside the home country is seldom a part of the training for students in journalism, not even at advanced levels.  The courses are predominantly national in scope with few exceptions. Several recent reports emphasizes that lack of international focus as a problem for journalist programs in general in Sweden although the national university authority has urged for change.

    In this paper I propose a method for changing this inward-looking education. The challenge is to use local knowledge and skills that are available, mostly inexpensive and in reach by using a ‘four-step’ approach during the educational program.

    Lärarrollen i förändring: En intervjustudie om lärares inställning till en förändrad lärarroll2010Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    During the past twenty years, the Swedish school systems have slowly changed to becomemore and more performance-driven. Private schools have been growing in general and, likeindependent schools and schools managed by municipalities, they profile themselves. Schoolsare becoming more performance and result-oriented, which has changed the roles of teachersin a dramatic way and is in general, still changing.

    By profiling students based on theirindividual performance, schools are able to help students identify themselves and their owngoals. The process of profiling is a slow one in which some teachers adapt more quickly thanothers, and one that is critical for other teachers to learn in order to keep up with the demandsof society.Schools, like ordinary businesses, are in constant competition with each other to keep up withthe newest and greatest models of teaching and to rank among the best in high achievements.Perhaps the downside of this modern school structure is that it is often difficult to have aschool where both school management and teachers see eye to eye. School management must heavily focus on the school’s results as a whole. They rely on the teachers to produce theseresults among their students, which at times creates a heavy burden on teachers. The teachersare expected to have a much larger role, often ones that have to do with advertising for theschool in addition to teaching their students. In order to attract more student applications,school management expects that their teachers follow a curriculum that will produce highscores and grades.

    This study was done with a secondary school in Stockholm, where four teachers and oneprincipal were interviewed in order to have their opinion of the discussion about teachers newposition in the school as they operate today.

    No Media Less Life?: Online Disconnection in Mediatized Worlds2014Inngår i: First Monday, ISSN 1396-0466, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 19, nr 11, s. 5497-Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In times when media are mundane fellows that are disappearing from our consciousness; when media usage is partly habitualized and therefore invisible, looking at disconnections rather than exclusively connection enables us to develop a deeper understanding of what it means to live in mediatized worlds. Media disconnection beyond digital divide and knowledge gap is, however, rarely addressed in current studies of mediatization. This paper is an attempt to explore specific forms of disconnection in conjunction with connection enabled by media. By using forced disruption of the daily stream of online engagement as a method, the article discusses how online disconnection can contribute to an understanding of media participation and its role in the everyday lives of young adults.

    Gratis medlemskap!: En språkvetenskaplig studie av genre, diskurs och identitetsskapande i presentationen av kundklubbar2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna språkvetenskapliga studie syftar till att synliggöra och diskutera kring hur olika genredrag, diskurser och identiteter tas i uttryck genom kundklubbars självpresentationer. Detta för att se på vilket sätt kundklubbar framställer sig själva i jakten på att värva, behålla och främja lojala kunder. I studien deltar åtta företag, vars kundklubbar har presenterats textuellt på respektive företags hemsida. För att hitta betydelsebärande moment i texterna har den systemisk-funktionella grammatiken tillämpats, och genom interpersonella och ideationella textanalyser har genredrag och diskurser synliggjorts. Det dras även paralleller till hur genredragen kan fungera identitetsskapande, och det diskuteras utifrån detta om hur kundklubben skapar en åtråvärd identitet både hos sig själv och sina medlemmar. Detta kopplas även till riktlinjer inom reklamgenren. Resultatet visar en tydlig struktur där kunder erbjuds exklusiva förmåner och en åtråvärd identitet i utbyte mot att registrera sig i klubben. Medlemmar intar en passiv roll som ansträngningslöst får eller tjänar på klubbens alla fördelar, medan kundklubbarna framställs som aktiva skapare och resursrika försörjare. Här framträder även en säljdiskurs, som ställs i kontrast till en dold konsumtionsdiskurs. Negativa aspekter, så som kostnader och villkor, osynliggörs och fokus ligger snarast på att beskriva den positiva upplevelsen och lönsamheten med att vara medlem i kundklubben.

    Co-evolving supportive networks and perceived community resilience across disaster-damaged areas after the Great East Japan Earthquake: Selection, influence, or both?2018Inngår i: Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management, ISSN 0966-0879, E-ISSN 1468-5973Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    After the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011, the new community currency experiment for supporting disaster recovery, Fukkou Ouen Chiiki Tsuka, was introduced by community-based organizations in these earthquake-damaged areas. However, little is known about how perceived community resilience coevolves with interactions in the disaster recovery process. Using Simultaneous Investigation for Empirical Network Analysis techniques, this study shows the coevolutionary dynamics between perceptions of community resilience and the formation of supportive links among residents through a community currency (“Domo”) in Kamaishi. This study also provides policy implications for how mutual reinforcement between community residents’ engagement in network establishments and building a sense of community resilience among those affected functions as a potential mechanism for facilitating disaster recovery.

    Jakten på berättelsen: en modell för att testa berättelsers potential tillämpad på valfilmerna vid Riksdagsvalet 20102011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In 2010 Swedish political parties used commercials broadcasted on TV for the first time in order to gain votes in a general election. In connection with the election the parties were criticized for not succeeding to formulate a story to the voters that conveyed how they wanted to change Sweden. In this paper I use central concepts from rhetoric, storytelling, postmodernism and psychology to formulate three demands each on the narrator, the story and its reception. Using the resulting image of what distinguishes a good narrator, a good story and a good reception as a starting point, I investigate to what extent the critique was justified. My findings indicate that the degree to which the commercials fulfill these demands vary greatly. Two flaws that I find are that the parties lacked credibility and were reluctant to state which groups in society would stand to lose from their policies. Another finding is that the stories provided by the parties were disturbed by other stories about the parties and the subjects their commercials covered. Based on these conclusions I formulate a set of questions that parties and others can use to test the potential of a story.

    Mood Patterns: Communicating the feel of design2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    During the last decade the interaction design area has shifted to an increased focus on aspects of user experience including aesthetic and affective qualities in the interaction, since usability alone has proven to be insufficient to ensure quality in the user experience. The increased focus on affect has mainly been explored in sensory affect, however affect in aesthetics has been rather unexplored, there might be a need for new methods and tools that support this type of qualities in interaction design. Therefore this article aims to contribute to the unexplored field of affective aesthetics by presenting and evaluating a design proposal for a tool which aims to facilitate the communication around affective aesthetics in design teams.

    Socio-technical dilemmas in participatory design: The development of an online video-mediated youth counselling2014Inngår i: 4th International conference applied linguistics and professional practice: Learning through and for professional practice : 10–12 September 2014, Geneva, Switzerland : Book of abstracts, ALAPP , 2014, s. 130-131Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The availability of online resources for youth counselling has increased in later years, posing a number of new challenges for existing practices and practitioners. Previous research on online youth counselling has addressed the changing conditions for professionals as well as for the young clients (Danby et al., 2009; 2011; Harris et al., 2012) but has not previously examined the processes through which the services are developed. In this study we follow a participatory design project in the development of a youth counselling e-service in Sweden. The study provides an ethnomethodologically informed analysis of how a group of counsellors discuss possible socio-technical dilemmas created by the introduction of web-based video-mediated counselling. As the analyses demonstrate, the planned implementation is met by the counsellors with extensive hypothetical reasoning. The counsellors draw on various experiences from the existing work practice, experiences of distance interaction with clients via telephone and chat as well as face-to-face meetings. With the help of these resources the counsellors provide reasoned accounts of envisaged problems connected with the combination of visual access and physical distance introduced by the video-link. Two issues in particular are topicalized: the problem of ‘dirty calls’ where callers engage counsellors in talk about sexual issues as a means of self-gratification; and the issue of suicide threats. The specific problems of the video-link are made salient through contrasts with face-to-face meetings as well as with telephone calls. Three main methods of addressing hypothetical problems can be discerned: first, normalizing the articulated problem by minimizing the difference between the new technology and existing practice (e.g. suggesting that Skype conversations can be ended in the same way as telephone calls); second, proposing conversational strategies in which referring to technological malfunction can be used as a resource for ending unpleasant calls or disabling the problematic video-link; third, defining and limiting the particular circumstances in which the video-link is to be used. Some general conclusions that can be drawn are that the practitioners use experiences from their current practices both to hypothesize about problems and create strategies for solutions. In different ways, these strategies work to bring the hypothetical new environment in line with existing work practices.

    Putinregimen har redan vunnit valet: En kvantitativ och kvalitativ studie om svenska medieföretags gestaltning av Ryssland och det ryska valet 20182018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte har varit att undersöka hur svenska medieföretag porträtterar Ryssland och det ryska valet 2018. Metodologiskt är det här både en kvantitativ och kvalitativ studie, som genomförts med insamling av hårddata samt en massmedieretorisk textanalys. För att besvara våra frågeställningar har materialet analyserats utifrån de teoretiska ramverken gestaltningsteorin, orientalism och mediekonstruktion. Medieföretagen vi undersöker är Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter, TT Nyhetsbyrån samt Sveriges Radio. Resultatet indikerar på att svenska media gestaltar Ryssland och det ryska valet negativt. Sveriges Radio skiljde sig från de andra företagen då de flesta av deras artiklar hade en neutral framtoning. Gestaltningen skapar en stereotyp bild, främst av Putinregimen, men även Ryssland och det ryska folket.

    The article reports findings from a pilot study of the discourse on Kosovo in four leading dailies from four countries: Greece, Norway, Sweden and the UK. A combined discourse and propaganda analysis approach is applied to the first three days' coverage of the NATO bombing campaign, with the aim of studying how the various national/local contexts influenced the media discourse's relationship to the propaganda discourse in the conflict. This problematic is relevant for the current discussion on globalization and superpower dominance in connection with transnational war journalism.

    Data journalism in Sweden: introducing new methods and genres of journalism into “old” organizations2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Data journalism is an evolving form of investigative journalism. In previous research and handbooks published on this topic, this form of journalism has been called computer assisted reporting and data-driven journalism, as well as precision, computational or database journalism.

    In Sweden, this form of journalism is still fairly uncommon. Since 2011, researchers at Södertorn University have been working together with data journalists at SVT (Swedish public service television) to develop knowledge about methods and challenges. In November 2012, the project group was expanded to include five daily newspapers, Aftonbladet (national tabloid), Svenska Dagbladet (national morning paper), Norrköpings Tidningar (regional publishing house), Helsingborgs Dagblad (regional morning paper) and Mittmedia (regional publishing company), the Swedish public service radio as well as the software company, SAS. The expanded project will end in 2014.

    The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the development of data journalism at these media companies, using action research methods. The content of this paper is based on an online survey of journalists working at the participating media companies and in-depth interviews with editors at these companies. The results indicate that, based on how this field is currently perceived by the journalists in the survey, there is a common definition of data journalism. Furthermore, the attitudes towards data journalism during the process of introducing new methods and genres of journalism into “old” organizations are correlated to the level of perceived experience in data journalism working methods. The main challenges facing the working methods of data journalism today are a shortage of time and the need for training and developing data journalism skills.

    Generational Use of News Media in Estonia: Media Access, Spatial Orientations and Discursive Characteristics of the News Media2014Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary media research highlights the importance of empirically analysing the relationships between media and age, changing user patterns over the life course, and generational experiences within media discourse beyond the widely hyped buzz terms such as the ‘digital natives’, ‘Google generation’, and other digitally and technologically capable generation groups. This doctoral thesis seeks to define the ‘repertoires’ of news media that different generations use to obtain topical information and create their ‘media space’. It contributes to the development of a framework within which to analyse generational features in news audiences by putting the main focus on the cultural view of generations. This perspective was first introduced by Karl Mannheim in 1928. Departing from his legacy, generations can be better conceived as social formations that are built on self-identification, rather than equally distributed cohorts. With the purpose of discussing the emergence of various ‘audiencing’ patterns from the perspectives of age, life course and generational identity, the thesis presents Estonia – a post-Soviet Baltic state – as an empirical example of a transforming society with a dynamic media landscape which is witnessing the expanding impact of new media and a shift to digitisation.The thesis is based on data from two nationally representative cross-section surveys on media use and media attitudes (conducted during the 2002-2012 period) and focus group discussions, that are used to map similarities and differences among five generation cohorts born between 1932 and 1997 with regard to the access and use of the established news media, thematic preferences and spatial orientations of media use, and discursive approach to news formats.

    The findings demonstrate remarkable differences between the cohorts, suggesting that they could be merged into three main groups that represent the prevailing types of relations with the news media. Yet, the study also reveals that attitudes and behaviour (including media behaviour), are not necessarily divided by year of birth, but are more and more dispersed along individualised interests and preferences.

    Convergence Citizen: Innovative Designs of Mediated Citizenship: A Case Study of the Swedish Convergence Festival Gather2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis studies citizen identity in the context of convergence festivals. These are large-scale events, curated as interdisciplinary meetings that materialize the knowledge economy and a participatory discourse. As media text constitute subjective reality, citizenship is negotiated in and through them. The employed theoretical framework of civic cultures suggests six interrelated dimensions through which citizenship evolves. The Swedish festival Gather is studied as a case example. Two published texts designed by Gather are studied by employing a social semiotic multimodal discourse analysis. The findings advocate for a widened understanding of citizen identity as a contingent, cultural practice negotiated in everyday life. It concludes that convergence festivals are productive junctions of discourse, intertwining democratic values with the cultivation of novelty. Civic discourses converge with such of connectivity and productivity, naturalizing growth and technology as means for social change. Citizen identity is foremost found in private agency.

    Becoming an incidental media activist: On Brazilian Landless  Workers’ Movement struggle to construct arenas for communication2014Inngår i: Voice & Matter: Glocal Conference on Communication for Development, Malmö: Ørecomm , 2014, s. 26-Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Brazilian Landless Workers’ Movement (MST) has since its creation in 1984 acted for the promotion of agrarian reform and rural workers’ and their families’ rights to education, healthcare, culture and infrastructure. Throughout its trajectory, the social movement faced the difficulties that arise from the scarcity of arenas and resources to communicate. Recognising at early stage that voice matters (cf. Couldry 2010) and that the means to form and express opinions are not equally available in a society, MST has since its foundation being active in constructing and maintaining communication channels on the side of the core cause of promoting agrarian reform. The article is based on fieldwork carried out in 2013 and 2014 and interviews with MST militants working with communication. The analysis of the material raises questions of relevance, potential and actual achievements of media activism. From the realisation, at an early stage, that voice is an important element in the promotion of social change; MST started their activities as incidental media activists. These activities run parallel and complement the movement’s work and include demands to change community radio legislation in Brazil and participation in FNDC, the National Forum for Democratisation of Communication. Based Fraser’s (2009) view of justice as a matter of recognition, redistribution and representation and on Couldry’s (2010 and 2013) critique of corporative media’s role in neoliberalism, this article discusses the experience of MST in becoming an incidental actor in the democratisation of media. The term incidental is used here to draw attention to the importance of voice for those considered marginal, even if acting on another aspect of marginality.

    Between opportunities and threats: an analysis of the Brazilian Landless Workers’ movement experiences with new media technologies2016Inngår i: IAMCR 2016: Participatory Communication Research Section: Abstracts of papers presented at the annual conference of the International Association for Media and Communication Research, 2016, s. 66-67Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent discussions and research about the uses of digital social media platforms by social movements and protest organizations have raised questions about threats and challenges represented by these technologies. There is also a debate on whether digital social media platforms can contribute to establish and strengthen long-standing oppositional groups and structural change. In this context, this article analyses how the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST) experiences and views the use of digital social media platforms in its communicative processes. Based on interviews and observations, the article shows how MST militants present ambivalent views towards platforms such as Facebook and Twitter and towards the dynamics of digital communication. Conclusions point that the main concern is threat to the organic collective character of the movement posed by individualistic digital social media platforms. Different from contemporary protest organisations, MST sees a clear separation between the movement and its media. The goal is to appropriate of and control media technologies, which brings many difficulties when dealing with digital social media platforms.

    Mobilization as Communication: A Latin American contribution to the study of social movements2016Inngår i: Commons: revista de comunicación y ciudadanía digital, ISSN 2255-3401, Vol. 5, nr 2, s. 93-117Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Many scholars have noted the lack of interdisciplinary dialogue and research between the areas of social movements studies and that of media and communications. While social movement studies fail to fully analyse media practices and communicative processes in relation to mobilization, in media and communication the social and political aspects of mobilization are seldom taken into account when analysing communication in social movements. This apparent lack of dialogue is presented in the paper as a consequence of north-centred theorization in the fields of social movement studies and media and communication, which is addressed by spelling out the contribution of Latin American communication scholarship and a view of mobilization as anchored in communication.

    Mobilization as communication: A Latin American Perspective to the Study of Social Movements2016Inngår i: Social Movements Around the World, 2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a critique to dominant social movement theories problematising their North-centrism and the lack of an in-depth analysis of media and communication's role for social movements. Drawing on Downing’s (2008) argument that there is very little dialogue between the areas of social movement studies and media and communication, a link between social mobilization and communication is identified in Latin American scholarship. The argument advanced is that concepts such as hybridization and conscientization, developed by Latin American scholars to explain social mobilization in the region, can be the missing analytical connection between social movement studies and media and communication. Furthermore, as these concepts were developed to explain social mobilization in post-colonial, underdeveloped and unequal societies, they are presented as a theoretical alternative to the Euro-American universalism of the dominant theories.

    Voices from the margins: People, media, and the struggle for land in Brazil2015Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This study looks into communicative processes and media practices among members of a subaltern social movement. The aim is to gain an understanding of how these processes and practices contribute to symbolic cohesion in the movement, how they develop and are socialized into practices, and how these processes and practices help challenge hegemonic groups in society. These questions are explored through a qualitative study, based on fieldwork and interviews, of a subaltern social movement. The empirical object of the study is the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST), which was founded in 1984 to promote agrarian reform and defend the rights of rural workers in Brazil.

     

    At the macro-level, the discussion addresses social realities marked by the meta-processes of globalisation, neo-liberalisation, and mediatisation. Against this background, the experiences of MST militants and of the movement as a whole help us to understand how different communicative processes play a role in the ways people experience globalisation, neo-liberalisation, and mediatisation in their daily lives. Departing from an understanding of communication as a process that structures practices (mediated and non-mediated), this study questions the media-centric understanding of communication, arguing that media practices are created through appropriation processes.

     

    The results show that communicative processes are crucial to reinforcing values and symbologies associated with the rural worker identity. There is also a high level of reflexivity about media practices and an understanding that they must serve the principles of the collective. As a consequence, the movement seeks to maintain control over media, routinely discussing and evaluating the adoption and use of media. The interviews show ambivalence towards the alleged dialogic and organisational potential of digital media and to the adaptability of these media to the MST’s organisational processes. Through observation, it is possible to conclude that media have an instrumental function, as opposed to a structural function, in the processes of social transformation engendered by the MST.

    Ativismo mídiatico circunstancial – uma análise da relação entre representações mídiáticas e políticas2016Inngår i: Animus: Revista Interamericana de Comunicação Midiática, ISSN 1677-907X, E-ISSN 2175-4977, Vol. 15, nr 30, s. 118-129Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [pt]

    Mídia alternativa radical (Downing, 2000) é um tipo de produção midiática comum entre movimentos sociais cujos membros não veem suas causas representadas na mídia dominante. Esse é o caso do Movimento Sem-Terra (MST), que desde 1984 tem criado meios de comunicação próprios e produzido conteúdo para plataformas variadas, tornando-se mais tarde ativo na área da democratização da comunicação. Baseado em trabalho de campo realizado em 2013 e 2014, esse artigo propõe uma perspectiva de direito à comunicação que aborde a configuração estrutural do setor de comunicação e não apenas a provisão de tecnologias e habilidades de produção. O estudo demonstra que ação coletiva e promoção de mudanças estruturais ainda são relevantes, aliadas às novas tecnologias de comunicação.
