    Cultural studies: Crossing borders, defending distinctions2020In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To identify a set of defining traits and goals of the cultural studies field is the task of this intervention. It begins by investigating how leading actors in this field today define it: the Association for Cultural Studies and the journals Cultural Studies, the European Journal of Cultural Studies, the International Journal of Cultural Studies, and Inter-Asian Cultural Studies. Three main tropes are identified: diversity, contextualization and critique. Each of them has partly succeeded but other aims remain unfulfilled. Two central tasks are formulated. First, cultural studies needs a reinforced critical reflexivity to explain what it is and why it is needed as a driving force for interactive diversity, contextualizing meaning making and communicative critique. Second, the field needs to be on high alert, stepping forward and responding fast and loud to the current totalitarian threats against sustainable and resilient academic knowledge production. © The Author(s) 2020.

    Europe Faces Europe: Narratives From Its Eastern Half2017Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Europe Faces Europe examines Eastern European perspectives on European identity. The contributors to this volume map narratives of Europe rooted in Eastern Europe, examining their relationship to philosophy, journalism, social movements, literary texts, visual art, and popular music. Moving the debate and research on European identity beyond the geographical power center, the essays explore how Europeanness is conceived of in the dynamic region of Eastern Europe. Offering a fresh take on European identity, Europe Faces Europe comes at an important time, when Eastern Europe and European identity are in an important and vibrant phase of transition.

    Media Times: Mediating Time - Temporalizing Media: Introduction2016In: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, p. 52016-5212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Special Section presents the work of the Scandinavian network Mediatization Times, which has gathered scholars with diverse backgrounds to discuss the complex relationship between time and the media. The contributions link to discussions of history and memory, liveness, and simultaneous presence as well as cultural techniques and infrastructures for temporal mediation. The section suggests that there is a renewed need to discuss temporal aspects of media and social change in the context of digital culture.

    The Mediatization of Third-Time Tools: Culturalizing and Historicizing Temporality2016In: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, p. 5213-5232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Time and media have multiple interfaces as media shape temporalities while changing through history. In three steps, this article explores how cultural time is mediated and how it changes through history. First, Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutics is presented as a fruitful way to understand cultural time as "third time," mediating between lived, subjective time and cosmic, objective time. Clocks, calendars, generational successions, archives, and documents are third-time tools linking internal to external time flows and producing text-based intersubjective temporality. Second, Ricoeur's analysis needs to be historicized. After discussing mediatization and its temporal development, the concept of waves is proposed to bridge the concepts of leap and growth. Particular attention is then paid to the latest, digital wave of mediatization. Referring to John Durham Peters and other media historians, some characteristics of this phase of time remediation are listed. Finally, critical, and political aspects are discussed, concluding that, although new technologies may threaten third time, this threat is counteracted by remediation that links digital time back to inherited modes of temporal representation.

    Three tasks for mediatization research: contributions to an open agenda2016In: Media Culture and Society, ISSN 0163-4437, E-ISSN 1460-3675, Vol. 38, no 7, p. 1090-1108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on the interdisciplinary experience of a Swedish research committee, this article discusses critical conceptual issues raised by the current debate on mediatization – a concept that holds great potential to constitute a space for synthesized understandings of media-related social transformations. In contrast to other, more metaphorical constructions, mediatization can be studied empirically in systematic ways through various sub-processes that together provide a complex picture of how culture and everyday life evolve in times of media saturation. The first part of this article argues that mediatization researchers have sometimes formulated too grand claims as to mediatization’s status as a unitary approach, a meta-theory or a paradigm. Such claims have led to problematic confusions around the concept and should be abandoned in favour of a more open agenda. In line with such a call for openness, the second part of the article introduces historicity, specificity and measurability as three transdisciplinary and transparadigmatic tasks for the contemporary mediatization research agenda. © 2016, © The Author(s) 2016.

    Culturalizing mediatization2014In: Mediatized worlds: Culture and society in a media age / [ed] Andreas Hepp & Friedrich Krotz, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, 1, p. 38-53Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Mediatization has now been revived as a key concept in media studies, mainly from social sciences perspectives. This paper argues for the value of revitalizing more culturally-oriented approaches to this concept. (1) First, definitional problems are analyzed, hinting at how a cultural perspective focusing on signifying practices of meaning-making may help identifying key ‘if’, ‘when’, ‘where’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ issues of interpreting mediatization as an historical process. The idea of ‘a media age’ is scrutinized, based on a tension between conceiving mediatization as a long-term process or as a dateable historic event. This leads to proposing a model of different levels and kinds of mediatization, making use of cultural theory. (2) Second, mediatization is related to process concepts such as modernization, lifeworld colonization and reflexivity. Mediatization discourse is compared to parallel discourses on culturalization, since these two process concepts are particularly interdependent, if culture is defined as signifying practice, and media are technologies of culture. Cultural perspectives should therefore also be highly useful to mediatization theory. The meaning of culture in relation to society is discussed, arguing for a fruitful way to interrelate the two, based on a combination of cultural studies and Paul Ricoeur’s critical hermeneutics. (3) Third, the contested genealogy of the concept of mediatization is discussed, emphasizing unfortunately repressed routes through cultural research and pointing at a need to reconnect to some anthropologically and hermeneutically inspired theorizations in the early 1990s. This shows how mediatization discourse always developed in the interface between media studies and other branches of the humanities and social sciences, with a particular affinity to cultural theory. Strategic considerations end in a pledge for continued transdisciplinary dialogue as the best means for understanding mediatization today, and a promising opportunity to productively combine social and cultural perspectives.

    Culture Unbound Vol. 6, Editorial2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, p. 7-11Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With this volume, Culture Unbound celebrates its five-year anniversary. This makes a good opportunity both to look back at what we have achieved and to gaze ahead to what we have planned for the future. This new volume, which will be more extensive and ambitious than ever, thus marks a readiness and willingness to engage with some of the most acute problems and complex transformation that society faces. We hope and believe that this not only expresses the ambitions of Culture Unbound but also reflects a more general tendency within contemporary cultural research. In order to better accommodate the most recent developments within the field of cultural research, and facilitate intellectual discussion and critical analysis of contemporary issues we also plan to expand our repertoire of published material. In the coming year Culture Unbound will therefore introduce a section of texts we have chosen to call ‘Unbound Ideas’. Here we welcome academic essays and texts of a somewhat shorter format and freer approach to scholarly convention than our usual full-length research articles. These essays will take different – perhaps speculative or conjectural – positions, or give a new perspective on pressing topics or recently emerged concerns within cultural research.

    Europa eller tjuren?: Identifierandets korsvägar2014In: Liv, lust och litteratur: Festskrift till Lisbeth Larsson / [ed] Kristina Hermansson, Christian Lenemark & Cecilia Pettersson, Göteborg/Stockholm: Makadam Förlag, 2014, 1, p. 74-87Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Här utforskas genusaspekter på hur europeisk identitet förhandlas i symboler. Myten om Europa och tjuren bär på motsägelsefulla tolkningsmöjligheter. Prinsessan Europa kan ses som personifikation av kontinenten, som med våld förs bort av Zeus i tjurhamn. Alternativt kan hon uppfattas som djärvt förförisk grundare av en dynasti, vilket erbjuder en helt annan europeisk självbild. Några tycks rentav hellre identifiera sig med den potent djuriskt-gudomliga tjuren som dramats centrala aktör. Här föreslås en ambivalent strategi som fasthåller dubbelheter i såväl ärvda symboler som dagens Europaprojekt. Varje levande myt är mångtydig och utsatt för en ohejdbar verkningshistoria vars tolkningskonflikter öppnar motsägelsefulla korsvägar för identifikation. Det är viktigt att bibehålla en agens också för Europa – såväl i mytisk symbolik som i dagens vardag – och se den genusifierade herre-slav-dialektiken i det begärsspel som format nutidens Europa: Europa är flerkönat, förenat endast i sin egen mångfald.

    Hidden Assumptions and Implicit Normative Conclusions: a Constructivist Critique of the Research on Eastern Euro-visions : Narratives of Europe in the ESC2014In: Communication for Empowerment: Citizens, Markets, Innovations : 5th European Communication Conference : 12-15 November, Lisboa, Portugal : Book of Abstracts, Universidade Lusófona , 2014, p. 267-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Union is looking for new narratives of Europe. But which was the old one and was there really just one? Do narratives of Europe in the so-called ‘new’ east Europe offer alternatives for redefining European identity? In order to approach these issues, this paper looks at how Europe is narrated in east European popular music, focusing the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC).

    A wide range of symbols struggle for identifying or signifying Europe (Fornäs 2012). The post-1989 EU enlargement has intensified such redefinition efforts. Popular music offers a fascinating field for such narrative identifications, with the ESC as an influential arena, linking cultural, social and political discourses. Music matters (Hesmondhalgh 2013) to people on many influential levels, combining emotive pleasure with social interaction in ways that offer rich resources for identifying practices. Being perhaps the most successful pan-European venture, the ESC is therefore an excellent source for investigating narratives of Europe.

    Written within an interdisciplinary project on east European ‘Narratives of Europe’, this paper analyses songs from ESC finals since 1989. Using a methodological model for analysing narratives, inspired by Genette (1972/1980), Ricoeur (1981) and Ryan (2004), it looks for who acts in a narrative (setup), what happens in which order (process), how or in what format the story is told (mode) and what identity it constructs for Europe (meaning).

    More than 70 songs were chosen, 40 of them from east Europe. Preliminary results in­dicate an overwhelming dominance of one master narrative of redemptive resur­rection, with a set of sub-variants. In other contexts than the ESC, popular songs may depict Europe as an eternally happy place or as falling from greatness into misery, but the ESC format strongly favours a narrative where Europe had a glorious past but then has been deeply torn by internal strife, wars and suffering, from which it now finally will recover by uniting in mutual co-operation and love. Some variants say little or nothing about the initial golden age, some less triumphantly place the resurrection as a dream for the future, and some east European song narratives add freedom from oppression to peace after internal war as core values, but the master narrative is never really abandoned.

    This resurrection narrative resonates with the founding myth expressed in EU’s key symbols. The inclusion of former Soviet Bloc countries into the European integration process has given new impetus to those founding narratives, and the ESC’s east European narratives indicate important continuities between the old and the new.

    While offering a methodological example of narrative analysis of media texts in the seldom-studied format of televised popular music, the paper also contributes to the understanding of how east European voices construct Europe’s history and future in the processes of transformation that challenge inherited ideas of what Europe means.

    Mediatisation times2014In: Communication for Empowerment: Citizens, Markets, Innovations : 5th European Communication Conference : 12-15 November, Lisboa, Portugal : Book of Abstracts, Universidade Lusófona , 2014, p. 355-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the concept of change in mediatisation theory, bringing in the dimension of temporality in two supplementary ways. Mediatisation denotes a set of social changes in the interface between communications media and other societal spheres. It is thus a truly temporal phenomenon, but it remains unclear how it actually develops over time – and how it affects time.

    The paper first scrutinises alternative ways to understand the temporal coordinates of mediatisation processes, and to explore the affordances of different theorisations in this respect. What does it mean to describe mediatisation as a revolutionary time shift, break or leap? What are the implications of instead depicting it in terms of long-term evolutionary processes of restructuring transition? Comparisons are made with other concepts for various forms of social change, including modernisation, globalisation and individualisation. It is hardly possible to prove one temporal perspective to be ‘correct’, but I will rather reflect on their different implications, as they have repercussions on how mediatisation is understood in terms also of its range, causes and effects.

    There is also another, reverse side of the interrelation between time and mediatisation: namely how mediatisation affects the time-dimension itself: how communications media restructure time consciousness, historical understanding, remembrance and forgetting. This section of the paper will refer to how Ricoeur (in Time and Narrative, 1982–1985 and Memory, History, Forgetting, 2000) analyses different technologies for culturalising or ‘humanising’ time (but also space), by linking cosmic-objective-universal with experiential-subjective-lived time through the use of calendars, generational successions, documents, archives and other intersubjective tools that mediate between the internal and the external (and similarly for spatiality). Media technologies are central to such practices, and mediatisation processes are therefore a testing ground for understanding the two-way traffic between media and time: the cultural mediation of time and the historical mediatisation of society and culture: linking the changing cultural mediation of time – and thus the mediatisation of time – to the historical-temporal aspects of mediatisation processes, as they affect the understanding of temporality itself. The aim here is thus to explore mutual determinations of time and mediatisation, and the bilateral temporal coordinates of media-related social change.

    The paper builds upon discussions in the Scandinavian ‘Mediatisation Times’ network funded the National Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation, and in my chapters in Mediatized Worlds (Hepp & Krotz, 2014) and Mediatization of Communication (Lundby, 2014).

    Mediatization of popular culture2014In: Mediatization of Communication / [ed] Lundby, Knut, Berlin/Boston: Mouton de Gruyter, 2014, p. 483-504Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Popular culture is often understood as being linked to mass media and therefore also implicated in the idea of mediatization. Here this is discussed in four main steps. (1) First, key problems in the concept of mediatization are illuminated, with popular culture as a testing ground: if there is always such a mediatization process going on; when (in which periods) this process is particularly intense and how it develops over time (gradually or in leaps); where (in which world regions) it can be located; how it has any effects (if it follows a relatively fixed logic or is more diffuse); and what it affects in terms of societal spheres and levels of practice. (2) Second, four main dimensions of the concept of culture are distinguished – cultivation, life forms, aesthetics, and signifying practice – all of which are found relevant to mediatization. As media are cultural technologies of communication, there is a close link between mediatization and culturalization. (3) Third, popular culture is similarly divided into four main meanings, defining it as mass culture, people’s culture, low culture, or illegitimized culture. (4) On this basis, examples illustrate how mediatization processes affect popular culture through four main phases, each linked to a new demarcation of popular culture itself: graphic mediatization of common culture, print mediatization of low culture, audiovisual mediatization of media culture, and digital mediatization of what again is becoming a more or less indistinguishable common culture.

                Popular culture frequently appears to be one of the most media-saturated spheres or fields of modern societies. It is sometimes even identified with media culture, for instance when contrasted with fine arts and folk handicrafts, and defined through its reliance on mass mediated texts disseminated by cultural industries to dispersed polymorphous audiences all over the globe. This closeness between popular culture and media processes poses a challenge for any effort to more precisely scrutinize whether there is any escalating increase in this kind of media presence, which would deserve to be labeled mediatization.

                In order to bring some clarity to this slightly paradoxical situation, it is helpful to first make some conceptual groundwork. This chapter will first analyze how the concepts of media and mediatization relate to culture and culturalization. Then, a similar discussion follows of popular culture, leading up to an effort to draft a provisional sketch of key steps in the mediatization history of popular culture. This will finally also make it possible to return to the initial definition of mediatization and reconsider its very basis.

    Abstract [en]

    In Denmark, Norway and Sweden, jazz went from being seen as radically foreign to become a seamless part of domestic culture. The conversation traces that development and displays how the national identities of these countries were, and still are, bound up with notions of race, ethnicity and culture. Yet, as the conversation also makes clear, ultimately it is a development that defies racial, ethnic or national boundaries.

    Abstract [en]

    This introduction to Marx’s economy critique covers all three volumes of Capital.

    Mediated identity formation: Current trends in research and society2013In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 20, no 2, p. 11-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to overview the current processes and challenges that relate to how media developments influence – and are influenced by – the ways in which personal and collective identities are formed in contemporary societies. First, it discusses ways to approach and define the concept of identity from a media perspective. A discussion of how identity formation issues links to the concept of new media literacies forms a transition to three sections that in turn analyse the social trends, the policy trends and the scientific trends that may be discerned in this area. The final section first summarises key research questions and then offers some more concrete ingredients for identifying possible instruments of a new research agenda.

    The dialectics of communicative and immanent critique in cultural studies2013In: tripleC (cognition, communication, co-operation): Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society / Unified Theory of Information Research Group, ISSN 1726-670X, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 11, no 2, p. 504-514Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In cultural studies and cultural research, the importance of being critical is often stressed, but it is more rare to scrutinise how such critique is and can be performed. This text discusses differ- ent modes of critique, in three main steps. First, a brief review of the history and signifying layers of the concept of critique itself leads up to a late modern communicative concept of critique, linked to the contested relation between critique and tradition, and based on how Paul Ricoeur has interpreted ide- ology critique and the hermeneutics of suspicion. This communicative mode is contrasted to critical approaches that strive to radically dissociate themselves from others. Second, it is argued that the most powerful sources of critique are to be sought in the inner contradictions of the targeted spheres of social reality rather than applied from the outside. Such immanent – as opposed to transcendent – critique, has been formulated and exercised by Karl Marx, Theodor W. Adorno and Walter Benjamin, among others. The third section sums up the spiral moves of cultural studies as informed by critical hermeneutics: dialectical critique based on communicative and immanent critique must be on the move, never frozen, and may temporarily and locally explore radical and transcendent modes of cri- tique, in ways that have been discussed by Donna Haraway.

    The symbolic crisis of the Euro: Trust and distrust in currency as an identifying medium2013Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the redefinition of European symbols and in particular the euro currency under the current condition of crisis, in which the identity of Europe is challenged and attributed new connotations. The current financial crisis has material effects for institutions and citizens, but also an important cultural aspect. Money is a means of payment but also a symbolic artefact or ‘micro medium’. Every European symbol demands a level of trust among its users, while also aiming to secure basic trust in the legitimacy of European values. When the euro runs into crisis, this therefore has crucial symbolic repercussions. If for instance Greece is forced to leave the Eurozone, this not only creates monetary difficulties but also questions the signifying force of the € symbol, whose name and design intend to express the foundation of European civilisation in the classical culture of Athens.

    European identification: Symbolic mediations of unity and diversity2012In: Global Media Journal : Australian Edition, ISSN 1835-2340, E-ISSN 1835-2340, Vol. 6, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses examples of mediated and mediating symbols used to build trust in Europe as a shared transnational project. It starts with a general discussion of globalisation and transnational mediation, and then briefly exemplifies how money, flags, anthems and other symbols work to suggest identifications. The five key European symbols ratified by the Council of Europe and the European Union are introduced, presented and analysed, indicating how the EU and other pan-European actors have chosen to express a sense of shared identity and meaning. Each of these key symbols is then scrutinised as multi-layered mediating tools in creating loyalty and reinforcing faith in collective societal institutions of markets and states, and in the corresponding imagined supra-national community. These dominant European symbols are shown to reflect a balance between homogenisation and fragmentation. The analysis locates a core identifying formula of “an ambivalent desire for communication with others”. However, it also finds a major set of tensions around this thematic core, understanding European identification as a dynamic process of mediation rather than as a limited and limiting object.

    Abstract [sv]

    Kultur är ett av språkets allra mest mångtydiga och svårdefinierade ord. Här ges en guide till hur dess fyra huvudbetydelser har växt fram och vad kultur kan betyda idag – från odling via livsformer och konstarter till meningsskapandets processer. Genom en lång rad talande exempel framträder en bild av hur begreppet knyter samman frågor om makt och identitet.
