    Visions of Europe: Cultural technologies of nation-states2006In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 189-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the expansion of the European Union eastwards,nations have adopted various strategies for being included in the Europeancommunity. This article discusses examples of cultural technologies used bypost-communist countries in aligning with Western Europe. It is argued that thephenomenon is in fact not new, as the marketing of nations has occurred since atleast the World’s Fairs of the 19th century. However, while the World’s Fairsaddressed the nation-states of high industrialism, cultural technologies are thefeatures used in a post-industrialized context, where it is more important toimpress with abilities of symbolic production rather than with traditionalindustrial production. In terms of modernization processes, it can be argued thatthe increased emphasis on symbolic production indicates a shift fromtechno-industrial modernization to techno-cultural modernization.

    Moving images, transforming media: The mediating communitas of Hallon TV and DYKE HARD2013In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 367-382Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates the queer feminist Swedish media projects HallonTV andDYKE HARD in order to argue that media production is constitutive of political movements as such. Particular attention is paid to an integral dimension of the constitution of such a political collectivity, namely its affective features. It is concerned with how a sense of ‘community’ comes to be ‘experienced’ by those who are involved, first-hand, in the development and extension of its messages to a wider public. Theoretically, the article proposes that these features will be better appreciated through both a harnessing of the discourse theoretical framework of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe as well as a reworking of the anthropologist Victor Turner’s idea of communitas.

    Understanding the prime mover Ambivalent Swedish press discourse on the USA from 1984 to 20092011In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 15-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a pervasive historical construct that is both foreign and familiar, the USA has a looming presence in Swedish media discourse. Swedish journalists' views of the USA can best be described as ambivalent - critical of a unilateral or too passive US foreign policy, while at the same time being heavily influenced by many aspects of the American economic model and culture. This article presents the results of an analysis of Swedish editorials, debate, commentary and cultural articles about the USA in time periods between 1984 and 2009. During these three decades USA actions are broadly framed against the backdrop of Cold War, globalization and cultural contestation paradigms respectively. The USA is seen as a formidable power, one that should be checked by others on the international stage. Cultural symbols based on historical European narratives about the US are called upon to illustrate reckless unilateralism ('Space Cowboy' Reagan) or the future-oriented entrepreneur as a role model for Sweden (during the Clinton years). The final decade under the cultural contestation paradigm is also ambivalent - the role of religion in the USA appears foreign to Swedish eyes, whereas the USA's cultural misunderstandings with others appear familiar.

    ’We See America’: Mediatized and Mobile Gazes in Swedish Postwar Travelogues2004In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 321-342Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article I explore the many different meanings of the mediatized meeting with New York (how gazing at the Manhattan skyline ‘felt like being at the movies’) from the point of departure of how traveling Swedes – mainly male, middle aged and of middle- and upper-class backgrounds – made sense of America in travel writing from 1945–1963. By analyzing the pivotal arrival scenes in these narratives in conjunction with the accompanying illustrations, I investigate the kinds of gazes that were called upon. I set out by arguing that their gazes reinforced a kind of ‘medial attitude’ which resonated with strong traditions of traveling and visualizing the other. But the article ultimately shows that when they approached the new world, experiences of mediatization and movement also invoked a range of other viewing possibilities that bore witness to their stance being first and foremost that of ambivalence, which implied that their gaze, their masculinity and their authority were set in motion.

    Coveted, detested and unattainable?: Images of the US superpower role and self-images of Russia in Russian print media discourse2011In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 71-89Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how the image of the USA has developed in two major Russian daily newspapers, Izvestiya and Komsomolskaya Pravda, in a time period comprised of a total 20 weeks' of study in the years of 1984, 1994, 2004 and 2009. For Russia this time span was dramatic: it moved from seemingly stable superpower in the 1980s, over the chaos after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, to the partial comeback to great power status at the beginning of the 21st century. While telling the story of how the image of the USA has evolved, the article also describes how Russian self-images have developed. The image projected of the USA was Manichean in the 1980s, whereas the most benevolent images were found in the 1990s. The examples from 2004 and 2009 reflect an assertive Russia that is back on the world stage. The USA is here again often criticized, but also - as before - comprises the scale against which Russia itself is measured.

    Changing images of the USA in German media discourse during four American presidencies2011In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 35-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents a study of how images of the United States have changed in German media discourse since the end of the Cold War. Two leading German news papers, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Suddeutsche Zeitung, have been analysed during four time periods - from 1984 to 2009 - covering four American presidencies. The results show that the image of the USA was far more critical in 2004, during the Bush era than during the other presidencies, where positive and trustful images had a more prominent place in the discourse. Even anti-American images were found. However, the critical images were, in general, more focused on what the USA does, not what it is - even during the Bush era. Furthermore, the relationship between the USA and Germany was portrayed as being close and friendly - like a father-son relationship - with the exception of 2004, when relations were presented as somewhat strained.

    'It's complicated' European media discourse on the USA from Reagan to Obama2011In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 3-14Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Media debates after the invasion of Iraq suggested that there was a growing anti-Americanism in Europe and that this contributed to an increasing sense of European identity as representing values that differed from that of the USA. But what if this anti-Americanism was really anti-Bushism, and how shared are the shared values on the European side when it comes to representation of the USA as Other? The articles in this Special Issue focus on the discursive image of the USA in the elite media of five European countries at points in time from a particularly frosty Cold War period under President Reagan until six months after the installation of President Obama. Taken together, there are broad similarities in the paradigms and characteristics used to depict the USA from the post-Cold War period, especially in French, Finnish, Swedish and German media. Below the surface, however, the narratives reveal that each country's commentators are mainly interested in the USA in relation to domestic concerns or as a prism for its relationships with other countries on the world stage. There is a stark focus on the US presidents as symbols through which the USA as a whole is seen. Both Democratic and Republican presidents are likened to Rambo, the 'space cowboy', the 'trade and cultural warrior', or Hollywood 'stars', which could be interpreted as a measure of cultural disdain towards American popular culture and militarism.

    Clockwork Corsets: Pressed Against the Past2015In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 379-383Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For a feminist scholar of technology, contemporary steampunk cultures incorporate several interesting elements. They embrace playful ways of relating to technology. They contain thrifty Do-It-Yourself strategies and ethics of recycling, linking the crafting of sexually specific bodies to imaginative time-play. They involve an intermingling of technological extensions with modes of embodiment and costuming. The corset is an emblematic Victorian, industrial technology in steampunk costuming, altering bodies and affects as well as aesthetics and politics. But how far can white, Victorian, middle-class, imperialist, corseted femininity be ‘punked’, twisted, modified, or transformed? And how much do these transpositions in and through time get caught up in a machinery of repetition rather than revision? Or are there ways of thinking the old and the new differently altogether?

    At the intersection of commons and market: Negotiations of value in open-sourced cultural production2017In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 14-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the way in which producers of digital cultural commons use new production models based on openness and sharing to interact with and adapt to existing structures such as the capitalist market and the economies of public cultural funding. Through an ethnographic exploration of two cases of open-source animation film production – Gooseberry and Morevna, formed around the 3D graphics Blender and the 2D graphics Synfig communities – we explore how sharing and production of commons generates values and relationships which trigger the movement of producers, software and films between different fields of cultural production and different moral economies – those of the capitalist market, the institutions of public funding and the commons. Our theoretical approach expands the concept of ‘moral economies’ from critical political economy with ‘regimes of value’ from anthropological work on value production, which, we argue, is useful to overcome dichotomous representations of exploitation or romanticization of the commons.

    Experts, dads and technology: Gendered talk about online music2016In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 19, no 2, p. 177-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the internet and digital media technology increasingly central to practices around music, this shift is often seen as contributing to a networked music use characterized by individualism. Drawing on a focus group study with young adults in Stockholm and Moscow, this article argues, however, that digital music use today is shaped by discourses of difference, with gender a significant factor both in constructions of the ideal music and technology user, and in terms of musical influence and guidance. Taking into account contemporary research on new media technology, as well as feminist studies of technology and music, the article questions ideas of a neutral user of new music technologies, showing how the gendering of music and media technology can be seen as simultaneously context-bound and cutting across geographies.
