    Avatar as Second Suit: Power and Participation in Virtual Work2019In: Games and Culture: A Journal of Interactive Media, ISSN 1555-4120, E-ISSN 1555-4139, Vol. 14, no 5, p. 560-578Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides an analysis of the experiences of user–avatar relations and interaction of people who work in a virtual world. Earlier research often claims that relationships between users and their avatars are, by nature, strong and intense. By analyzing individuals who conducted paid labor in a number of public institutions in a virtual world, this article argues that the frame of work heavily influenced the professional users’ experiences of using an avatar. The user–avatar relationship was mainly related to how and why the user entered the virtual world, their position in their off-line and online workplaces and, as a result, related to aspects of power and control over the framing of the online arena. Because of these factors, many of the professional users regarded their avatar more as a second suit than, as has often been argued, a second self.

    Digital distinctions: Mechanisms of difference in digital media use2015In: MedieKultur: Journal of Media and Communication Research, ISSN 0900-9671, E-ISSN 1901-9726, Vol. 31, no 58, p. 30-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims to understand the distinctive mechanisms of digital media use, seen in relation to cultural practices at large. The empirical material is a survey study of university students at the Business Administration, Media and Communication Stud-ies, Political Science and Philosophy departments at Södertörn University, Sweden. The empirical analysis deals with the students’ digital media use and preferences, and how these are related to their broader cultural practices and preferences. Spe-cific attention is paid to the webpages the students mention in the survey, and how these are distributed among the groups. By showing detailed information on these areas, the mechanisms of difference of digital media use are revealed.

    Ethics and morality beyond the Actor-Network: Doing the right thing in an algorithmic culture2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The growing governance and authority of algorithms and the rapid emergence of the ‘Internet of Things’, has intensified attention to the relationship between humans and machines, and to the ethics of everyday life with technologies. This raises a lot of questions: How should we live with technologies? Can humans make decisions? The question on the authority of humans is clearly debatable. In this paper I discuss the underlying premises for the ethical standpoint of Actor Network Theory (ANT) and explore other existing alternatives. I begin by looking into the basic premises of ANT, and the assumptions of ‘the human’ and of ethics it comprises. I then explore the notion of a ‘disclosive’ ethics and continue by penetrating the relation between agency and ethics in ANT. Following from this I discuss various different approaches to ethics, and how we can still keep a human notion of ethics in an algorithmic culture.

    Ethics Exists in Communication: Human‐machine ethics beyond the Actor‐Network2018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The growing governance of algorithms and the rapid emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the ‘Internet of Things’, has intensified discussions about the relationship between humans and machines, and the ethics of everyday life with technologies. It raises questions such as: How should we live with technologies? Can humans still make decisions? The earlier taken for granted authority of humans is clearly debatable, and sometimes also dismissed, particularly within Actor Network Theory (ANT). In this paper, I look into the basic premises of the ethics of ANT, explore suggested ethical perspectives within ANT such as ‘disclosive’ ethics, and continue by penetrating the relation between agency and ethics, as well as between morality and ethics in ANT. ANT is further discussed as on the one hand a sociological perspective and on the other hand an ethical approach. Based on this analysis I propose the anthropological perspective of an ‘ethics of the ordinary’ as a possible way to learn from the basic premises of ANT while maintaining a human notion of ethics in a technology‐conflated culture.

    Faraway, so close!: Proximity and distance in ethnography online2014In: Media Culture and Society, ISSN 0163-4437, E-ISSN 1460-3675, Vol. 36, no 6, p. 862-877Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues for a revised importance of distance, besides the much emphasized closeness, in the debate on and use of ethnographic methods in online environments. When returning to the founding fathers of ethnographic methods, distance is often put forward as a core aspect of ethnographic methods, something widely forgotten, or even rejected, in the current debate in the field. Space has been restructured by digital media technologies, and the spatial and temporal proximity of digital  media cultures present new challenges for research methodologies. Based on the author’s own experiences of ethnographic fieldwork in digital cultures, and with Henri Lefebvre’s theory of everyday life as a rhythm as vantage point, it is here argued that  distance, dialectically interlinked with closeness and proximity, should be given further attention in current research and debate on ethnographic methods used online.

    Symbolic spaces of everyday life: work and leisure at home2006In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 27, no 2, p. 119-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents an analysis of the role of the media in the symbolic construction of work and leisure at home. Dealing with individuals who represent a post-industrial and cultural labour market and who work mainly at home, the analysis focuses upon the ritual transformations of everyday life and the role of the media within it. Leaning on social interactionist Erwin Goffman and his concepts of regions and frames, as well as a dimension of the materiality of culture, this analysis combines a perspective on media use as ritual, transformations in everyday life and the organization of material space. From this perspective, the discussion penetrates the symbolic dimension of media use in defining borders of behaviour and activities in relations to work and leisure at home.

    The Relevance of Digital News: Themes, Scales and Temporalities2023In: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082X, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In news research, news relevance was for long synonymous with how journalists constructed it. But recently, scholars have questioned the assumption that journalists’ preferences correspond with their audiences’. Several studies have approached news relevance from the audience point of view, showing audiences’ news relevance is constructed as an everyday practice, through assessments of topics and brands, and at the backdrop of users’ earlier experiences. News relevance from the audience perspective however still remains undertheorized and builds on traditional understandings of news journalism. This article aims to contribute to this debate with (1) a matrix of four types of news relevance, constructed from an analysis of how young Swedish adults construct news relevance in the contemporary digital media landscape, (2) the identification of three dimensions that distinguish different kinds of news relevance from each other, and (3) a theoretical definition of news relevance from the audience’s perspective grounded in phenomenological theory and empirical analysis. This papers hence provides a deeper theoretical and empirical understanding of the ways news, understood as something broader than news journalism, is considered relevant by young audiences.

    Abstract [en]

    Following the publication of Henri Lefebvre’s book Le Droit à la ville (1968), a debate has emerged regarding the neoliberal takeover of urban spaces and activism. Nonetheless, in the past 10 years, we have seen the continuous expansion of public space via social networking media and, today, most public institutions in Western states use social networking sites to communicate with their “citizens.” Although there are many serious problems associated with this takeover, little has been said about them so far. In this article, I address the contribution of The right to the city to this debate by analyzing a public institution which tried to establish communication with its “citizens” in an urban space in a virtual world. My analysis concludes that the users of this new media platform did not regard themselves as citizens when they were dwelling in this urban space online, but instead saw themselves as the consumers they were addressed as in this environment.

    Ungdomskulturens don Quijote-dimension: medier och kulturell smak i Estland och Sverige2006In: Locus, ISSN 1100-3197, no 1, p. 19-31Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    På samma sätt som skillnaden mellan hur don Quijote såg på världen och hur den verkligen var beskaffad, finns en skillnad i ungdomskulturen mellan föreställningar om verkligheten och verkligheten som den faktiskt ser ut. Artikelförfattaren tar avstamp i Pierre Bourdieus tankar om hur smak för viss slags kultur kan dröja kvar trots att samhället förändras radikalt. En sådan förändring kan dagens ungdomar i Estland sägas ha varit med om. De var barn när helt andra förutsättningar rådde för medier och kultur i deras land. Vad tycker då ungdomar i Estland är bra film och litteratur? Och hur förhåller sig deras smak till svenska ungdomars preferenser?

    What is News?: Young audiences, digital media and the mediatisation of news2020In: Anais de resumos Expandidos IV Seminário Internacional de Pesquisas em Militarização e Processos Sociais: Realizado entre Novembro de 2020 e Janeiro de 2021, UNISINOS, São Leopoldo, RS, Brasil, São Leopoldo: Instituto Humanitas Unisinos , 2020, Vol. 1Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation presents a theoretical and methodological approach to studying news perceptions and practices among young adults in digital culture. 

    Digital media transform news. Firstly we see this in changing use patterns. Young people today show a decline in interest in traditional news formats and practices, such as watching the evening news on TV or reading a daily newspaper. But digital media also transform production and distribution of news, leading to new ways to conceptualise and understand news. In light of these profound transformations in audience behaviour many have started to question the concept of news in news research.

    In light of such altered production and distribution contexts which fundamentally impact on audiences’ definitions and perceptions, this will paper presents an alternative way to theoretically and methodologically approach news, beyond traditional news research.

    Medievetenskapens idétraditioner2020Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den som vill förstå dagens mediesamhälle har mycket att hämta genom att återvända till tidigare analyser, teorier och idéer – till vad som kunde kallas för medievetenskapens idétraditioner. Den här antologin inventerar och förmedlar ett förråd av traditioner och texter, fyllt av verktyg för att navigera i det samtida medielandskapet. Varje kapitel behandlar en klassisk medievetenskaplig text och placerar den i sitt historiska och vetenskapliga sammanhang; presenterar en närläsning av dess centrala innehåll och diskuterar dess relevans idag. Bokens kapitel är tänkta att erbjuda ett stöd till egen läsning av originaltexterna, inte att ersätta sådan läsning. Boken riktar sig till studenter och lärare i medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap och närliggande ämnen samt andra som intresserar sig för medievetenskapens idétraditioner.

    Media and basic desires: An approach to measuring the mediatization of daily human life2021In: Communications: the European Journal of Communication Research, ISSN 0341-2059, E-ISSN 1613-4087, Vol. 46, no 2, p. 275-296Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The extended reliance on media can be seen as one indicator of mediatization. But even though we can assume that the pervasive character of digital media essentially changes the way people experience everyday life, we cannot take these experiences for granted. There has recently been a formulation of three tasks for mediatization research; historicity, specificity and measurability, needed to empirically verify mediatization processes across time and space. In this article, we present a tool designed to handle these tasks, by measuring the extent to which people experience that media reach into the deeper layers of daily human life. The tool was tested in an empirical study conducted in Sweden in 2017. The results show that perceived media reliance is played out in relation to three types of basic desires: (1) (re)productive desires, (2) recognition desires, and (3) civic desires, and is socially structured and structuring. We argue this tool, in diachronic analyses, can measure one important aspect of mediatization.

    Media and Basic Desires: An Approach to Measuring the Mediatization of Daily Life2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The extended indispensability of media can be seen as a key indicator of mediatization, whereby our lives become adapted to media. But even though we can assume that the pervasive character of digital media essentially changes everyday life and the way people experience it, we cannot take consequences of technological transformation for granted. Following from this we argue there is a need for quantitative analyses that can verify mediatization processes in time and space.

     

    Here we present a tool that measures the extent to which media reach into the deeper layers of daily human life, used in an empirical study conducted in Sweden in 2017. The results show that perceived media indispensability is played out along three dimensions of daily human life; (1) (re)production; (2) recognition, and (3) civic life, and appears as a socially structured and structuring process, although not in a very strong way. We argue this tool, in diachronic analyses, works as a measurement of mediatization.

    Media Micro-Generations: How New Technologies Change Our Media Morality2018In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 95-110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article proposes and explores the notion of “media micro-generations”. Based on a survey of values and norms in relation to media-related behaviour in Sweden, we identify statistically significant media micro-generations. Through an analysis of the technologies that were introduced during the formative years of different media micro-generations, we propose that media micro-generations are formed with the introduction of new media technologies. Thus, the existence of media micro-generations illustrates how rapid trans- formations of media technologies can shape the moral notions of narrow age groups. It also explains why many earlier studies have detected a rather large span of years (1970-1985, in between the TV generation and the internet generation) during which no generational identity seems to have been formed.

    The Meanings of Social Media Use in Everyday Life: Filling Empty Slots, Everyday Transformations, and Mood Management2022In: Social Media + Society, E-ISSN 2056-3051, Vol. 8, no 4Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since their emergence in the early 2000s, social media have continued to increase in popularity, particularly among adolescents and young adults. Even though they have been studied in relation to a wide range of topics, including their role in politics, social relationships, activism, identity construction, and youth cultures, the rise of social media is also connected to a number of less dramatic, yet pervasive, shifts relating to their integration into the mundane practices of day-to-day life. In this article, we explore the uses of social media as part of everyday life, a perspective that has gained less attention in research about social media. We take an interest in how young adults create meaning around their daily practices, involving many different social media platforms. Doing so, we draw on in-depth individual and small group interviews with 67 young adults, aged 18–26, conducted in Sweden during 2019–2021. We approach social media as a joint environment, consisting of a wide range of different platforms traversed by the user. The empirical analysis identifies three significant meanings of social media: filling empty slots, everyday transformations, and mood management. These three different meanings are shaped by different temporal, spatial, and technological characteristics and emphasize the importance of social media use in the lives of the young adults.

    The Don Quixote of youth culture: media use and cultural preferences among students in Estonia and Sweden2005Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    How should youth culture be understood in the globalised world of today? How do patterns of cultural taste develop in societies undergoing fundamental change? This book presents a comparative analysis of media use and cultural preferences among students at the University of Tartu in Estonia and at Södertörn University College in Sweden. In some respects, the patterns found in the two countries converge, in others they diverge. Explanations for this are to be found both in the present living conditions and in social norms from the past.
