    The Midnight Sun Never Sets: An Email Conversation about Jazz, Race and National Identity in Denmark, Norway and Sweden2014In: Afro-Nordic Landscapes: Equality and Race in Northern Europe / [ed] McEachrane, Michael, New York/London: Routledge, 2014, 1, p. 57-83Chapter in book (Other academic)
    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.

    "Jag är visst feminist": en sociosemiotisk studie av tre feministiska profiler på Instagram2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att studera Instagram som plattform för olika typer av feminism, och att undersöka hur den kvinnliga kroppen representeras av uttalade feminister på Instagram. Detta görs genom en studie av tre framträdande Instagramfeministiska konton. Den politiska aktivismen har de senaste åren växt i takt med att sociala plattformar blivit allt mer populära (Mendes 2012, 236). Instagram har visat sig vara en effektiv plattform för att organisera och bedriva politisk aktivism, inte minst ur feministisk synpunkt där hashtags som till exempel #metoo har spridit kunskap om patriarkala strukturer och skapat debatt som även nått massmedia (ibid, s 236). Jag undersöker hur tre utvalda Instagramkonton producerar feminism genom bilder på kroppen med utgångspunkt i feministisk teori och fokus på kvinnokropp och ideal. Genom en socio-semiotisk innehållsanalys vill jag se på vilket sätt dessa konton sprider feministiskt innehåll genom bilder på kroppar och till viss del hur dessa inlägg tolkas av deras följare.

    Slutsatsen är att presentationen av kvinnokroppen skiljer sig beroende på vilken typ av feminism som produceras, men också vilken respons deras följare ger. Det syns också stora skillnader i följarnas engagemang mellan de konton som har ett normbrytande förhållningssätt kontra det kontot som representerar en mer idealisk och normativ kroppsbild. Att utge sig för att vara feminist är inte heller en garant för att producera feministiskt innehåll.

    Post-Privacy and Ideology2014In: Media, Surveillance and Identity: Social Perspectives / [ed] André Jansson & Miyase Christensen, New York, NY: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2014, p. 218-237Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We offer reflections on the counter-discourse of “post-privacy” that has become prevalent among some net activists. The post-privacy position advocates the abandonment of privacy activism and personal privacy hygiene based on the conviction that digital privacy is both untenable and socially unrewarded. This laissez-faire attitude towards surveillance reveals deep anxieties about the loss of control over domains previously associated with autonomy, self-presentation and personal visibility. In our effort to make sense of post-privacy advocacy, we propose a framework within which post-privacy ideology is interpreted through the doxa and the praxis of maintaining personal online privacy under conditions of state and corporate surveillance.

    Politik För dig på TikTok: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys av valrörelsen 2022 på TikTok2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att kartlägga vilka partier samt vilket politiskt block som fått mest utrymme på plattformen TikTok under valrörelsen 2022. Fokuset är att ta fram ett underlag till hur plattformen ser ut 2022 samt att kunna diskutera eventuella konsekvenser av resultatet. Detta kommer vi kunna genomföra genom sökordet “Valet 2022” på plattformen TikTok genom en kvantitativ innehållsanalys. Uppsatsens frågeställningar kommer belysa vilka partier som haft mest utrymme på plattformen. Frågeställningarna kommer även visa vilka reaktioner som användarna på appen har till partierna samt vad de politiska partierna associeras med på plattformen. 

    Resultatet visar att högerblocket är överrepresenterat på plattformen samt att det ofta publicerades klipp från Moderaternas officiella TikTok konto. Vi har tagit fram en graf som visar vilken relevans en användare med få visningar hade på plattformen och vi kunde utifrån detta konstatera att TikToks huvudfokus ligger på För dig sidan. Till sist har vi även parat ihop relevanta variabler från vår studie för att få allt från partiers storheter, till hur kommentarsfältet på klippen sett ut. De slutsatser vi har kommit fram till utifrån resultatet är att det fanns en stor skillnad mellan höger- och vänsterblocken. Där höger både syntes mer i antal klipp och även hade fler reaktioner från andra användare. Vår forskning kommer även kunna användas och utvecklas i framtida studier för att belysa plattformen TikTok och dess påverkan vid riksdagsval.

    Media, communication and the struggle for social progress2018In: Global Media and Communication, ISSN 1742-7665, E-ISSN 1742-7673, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 173-191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the role of media and communications in contributing to social progress, as elaborated in a landmark international project – the International Panel on Social Progress. First, it analyses how media and digital platforms have contributed to global inequality by examining media access and infrastructure across world regions. Second, it looks at media governance and the different mechanisms of corporatized control over media platforms, algorithms and content. Third, the article examines how the democratization of media is a key element in the struggle for social justice. It argues that effective media access – in terms of distribution of media resources, even relations between spaces of connection and the design and operation of spaces that foster dialogue, free speech and respectful cultural exchange – is a core component of social progress.

    Abstract [en]

    Developments in digital technologies over the last 30 years have expanded massively human beings' capacity to communicate and connect. Media infrastructures have acquired huge complexity as a result of rapid technological change and the uneven spread of access. This is a good time to think critically about 'connection' and its potential contribution to social progress. We first explore key developments in media infrastructures and communication flows across the world, bringing out salient differences in the local evolution of, and inequalities in media access. Second, we examine how media – as infrastructures of connection – contribute to public knowledge and enable new types of encounter between people on various scales, while also enabling counter-movements for social progress. Third, we examine the changing governance of media infrastructures, the issues of social justice that such infrastructures raise and the counter-movements to which they give rise. Fourth, we consider media as a specific site of struggle for social progress, arguing that measures of social progress themselves need to be expanded to take account of the human needs (such as voice) that media serve. Overall the chapter reflects on how media and communications flows and infrastructures both maintain and challenge asymmetries of power, with complex implications for social progress.

    A Distributional Semantic Online Lexicon for Linguistic Explorations of Societies2023In: Social science computer review, ISSN 0894-4393, E-ISSN 1552-8286, Vol. 41, no 2, p. 308-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Linguistic Explorations of Societies (LES) is an interdisciplinary research project with scholars from the fields of political science, computer science, and computational linguistics. The overarching ambition of LES has been to contribute to the survey-based comparative scholarship by compiling and analyzing online text data within and between languages and countries. To this end, the project has developed an online semantic lexicon, which allows researchers to explore meanings and usages of words in online media across a substantial number of geo-coded languages. The lexicon covers data from approximately 140 language-country combinations and is, to our knowledge, the most extensive free research resource of its kind. Such a resource makes it possible to critically examine survey translations and identify discrepancies in order to modify and improve existing survey methodology, and its unique features further enable Internet researchers to study public debate online from a comparative perspective. In this article, we discuss the social scientific rationale for using online text data as a complement to survey data, and present the natural language processing-based methodology behind the lexicon including its underpinning theory and practical modeling. Finally, we engage in a critical reflection about the challenges of using online text data to gauge public opinion and political behavior across the world.

    Ethical Dilemmas in Mediation of International Aid: We Effect's Visual Communication from Kenya to Sweden2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to investigate how international development organizations are working to communicate campaigns and photographs from one cultural context to another. Additionally, will challenges in making campaigns which are both ethical appropriate and engaging be highlighted and discussed in relation to today’s impatient media landscape where globalization and development are dominated by economic interests. This research follows the international development cooperation We Effect and explore their whole media production process while making external communication from the work in Kenya to the target group in Sweden. The researcher has done interviews with decision makers at the head office in Stockholm, regional communicators in Nairobi, independent photographers and farmers in the fields of Kenya, visible in We Effect’s campaigns in Sweden. Additionally, ethnographical observations and diary notes contribute to answer the question how international organizations are planning, creating and distributing ethical and engaging media about development organizations long-term development work. In theoretical discussions, anchored in concepts about global culture, cosmopolitanism and how to mediate distant others, together with previous literature by Lilie Chouliaraki, Roger Silverstone and Stuart Hall, will this research state that there are several challenges in communicating messages from one cultural context to another. The distance, both geographical and mental, makes it challenging for the media producers and spectators to understand the same message; this research states that both the media producers and spectators’ interpretations of photographs and messages are dependent on their cultural background.

    Den hemtrevliga studion och den stora scenen: En kvalitativ studie om kvinnligt och manligt i talkshowers visuella uppbyggnad2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Talkshowens historia sträcker sig tillbaka till början av 1950-talets USA. Den har sedan dess delats upp i subgenrer och spridit sig globalt över hela världen vilket gör den till en viktig del av vårt tv-flöde. Syftet med studien är att se i vilken visuell miljö manliga och kvinnliga programledare tar plats i de talkshows som visas på svensk television idag. Detta genom en kvalitativ, semiotisk analys.

     

    Resultatet visar att kvinnliga programledare i högre grad än män visas i en studiomiljö med en rekvisita som ofta kan ses i ett hem. Kvinnliga programledare visas även oftare i en studio med en tydlig rumslig avgränsning medan män syns i en studio där rummets väggar är mer diffusa och med tecken som anspelar på att efterlikna just en scen snarare än ett rum eller hem.

    Participatory Deliberation, Risk Governance and Management of the Marine Region in the European Union2014In: Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning, ISSN 1523-908X, E-ISSN 1522-7200, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 497-515Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Europe, marine environmental risks are governed in a complex multi-level system. The role that the marine region could or should play as a level of risk governance has attracted growing attention of late. In this context, reference has been made to the regional sea as one level at which participatory processes in the future governing of European Union's (EU) marine environment and resources are required. The paper unfolds the particular challenges that one faces when trying to implement stakeholder and citizen participatory deliberation at marine region level. The EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive is highlighted as a key European environmental policy initiative and participatory deliberation at regional sea level is underlined as a requirement for the Directive's successful implementation. The paper's account of participatory deliberation is informed by perspectives of inclusive risk governance and reflexive governance. The discussion of the challenges draws on the distinction between horizontal and vertical risk governance. The paper's main argument is that frequently encountered problems of participatory deliberation are exacerbated when deliberation is to be carried out at the regional sea level, i.e. at a large trans-boundary scale. These problems include the 'inclusivity-effectiveness dilemma', a fragmentation of participation efforts and a loose connection to actual decision-making.

    Dynamics of Mediatization: Institutional Change and Everyday Transformations in a Digital Age2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume sheds light on the underlying dynamics of mediatization, disentangling the actual unfolding of mediatization processes. The wide adoption and deep embedding of digital media and technology brings new questions to mediatization studies: how can we grasp this ‘deep mediatization’? In which way should we develop existing approaches of mediatization to analyse such dynamics? What are the consequences of this for theorising and empirically studying mediatization?  By using these questions as a starting point, this book presents an innovative and original collection that is dedicated to both the underlying dynamics of mediatization and recent dynamics related to digital media.

    Semi-anonymous question and answer platforms from a teenager’s point of view: Beyond Internet abuse on Sayat.me: the bigger picture2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis studies teenage users that are common to the semi-anonymous question and answer platform Sayat.me. Sayat.me offers users with a profile the possibility to receive questions and feedback from friends and peers. What is so special about the platform is that the commenters’ identity remains undisclosed, which means that all messages are by default anonymous. Previous research has demonstrated the frequent occurrence of cyberbullying or online abuse on these platforms. Adults are puzzled as to why semi-anonymous question and answer platforms are so popular amongst teenagers. Departing from a theoretical framework with key concepts from digital and social media theories, the analysis tries to create a better understanding of this phenomenon from Belgian teenagers’ point of view. The results of the interviews show that, first of all, Sayat.me is not considered as an independent social media site, but rather as an extension of it. On social media, ‘sociality’ and ‘connection’ is what matters, but on Sayat.me sociality mainly plays an indirect role where users receive compliments from and are comforted by friends. Compliments, approval and admiration is what teenagers keeps coming back to the platform. Although teenagers often encounter online abuse, they do not feel cyberbullied, even so they consider this abuse as ‘natural’ on the platform. In addition, it appears that the way you are handling Sayat.me says a lot about you as a person, which is why teens use Sayat.me to present themselves or to portray a certain image. However, teenagers only imagine their friends or peers as the audience and do not consider their Sayat.me for their parents’ eyes. The situation is that parents are confused and do not understand their children’s online behaviour, whilst teenagers are annoyed with their parents’ incomprehension and overprotectiveness.

    "Miley What's Good?": En hiphopfeministisk diskursanalys av motstånd, femininitet, ras och sexualitet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att analysera och erhålla en djupare förståelse kring latenta föreställningar om ras, sexualitet och femininitet, med utgångspunkt i den svarta kvinnliga hiphopartisten Nicki Minaj framställning av sig själv, och det motstånd hon har artikulerat. Hennes motstånd mot det vita patriarkala majoritetssamhället har mött kritik av de vita artisterna Taylor Swift och Miley Cyrus, samt av den svarta hiphopskribenten Chuck Creekmur. Frågeställningarna berör vilka strategier Minaj använder för att göra motstånd, och vilka reaktioner hennes motstånd får, samt hur Swifts och Cyrus reaktioner kan förstås utifrån teorier om vithet. Det teoretiska ramverket utgörs av hiphopfeministisk och svart feminismteori, främst med utgångspunkt i Chepps (2015) teori om respektabilitet, samt teorier om vithetsnormer, där Yancys (2008) teorier ”om att bli tagen i bakhåll av sin vithet” och ”ond tro” kan nämnas. Metoden som använts är diskursanalys för att genom specifika teman kunna analysera latenta meningar i texterna. Det som framkom i analysen är att Minaj använder många sätt för att göra motstånd, både genom att explicit uttrycka sin åsikt men också genom att utmana sterotypa framställningar av den svarta kvinnans kropp och sexualitet. Swift och Cyrus reaktion på Minaj kritik är typiskt så som många vita reagerar när de konfronteras med sin egen position i vithetsnormen: med chock och aggression mot den rasifierade person som påtalade ojämlikheten.

    "Vi bekämpar machokulturen": En kritisk diskursanalys av hur maskulinitet konstrueras genom språkanvändningen i podcasten Mellan himmel och jord2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersöker hur podcastformatet kan reproducera eller utmana samhällsnormer ge­nom sitt innehåll, och på vilka sätt medieformatet möjliggör eller begränsar detta. Som ett sätt att göra detta undersöks podcasten Mellan himmel och jord med syftet att se hur maskulin-i­tet konstrueras och om, och i så fall hur, rådande maskulinitetsnor­mer kommer till uttryck. Vidare sätter studien maskulinitetskonstruktionerna i relation till genusmaktsordningen i stort. Det teoretiska ramverket utgörs av genusteori, maskulinitetsteori samt kritisk diskursana­lys. Det sistnämnda är även den analysmetod som används i studien.

     

    Resultatet visar att podcastformatet främst möjliggör att maskulinitet kan konstrueras språkligt, då studien har resulterat i följande fyra teman: Män vs. kvinnor, Inget är viktigare än karriären, Guys support guys och Den nya maskuliniteten, där de tre förstnämnda påvisar koppling till rå­dande maskulinitetsnormer och ett befästande av genusmaktsordningen. Det särskilt viktig­aste maskulinitetsidealet som framställs i podcasten är kravet på en framgångsrik karriär. Däre­mot utmanar de maskulinitetsidealen på flera plan, vilket temat Den nya maskuliniteten åskådlig­gör. Främst görs det genom anspråket att bekämpa machokulturen. 

     

    Slutligen har studien resulterat i ett förslag till utvidgande av maskulinitetsteorin och ytterligare en maskulinitetstyp föreslås, en avvisande maskulinitet.

    Kommunikation för hållbart mode: En produktionsstudie om second hand-mode ur ett kommunikationsvetenskapligt perspektiv2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to, against the background of how today's second hand-fashion has come to change current concepts and new communication techniques, find out how businesses in the industry perceive their communication towards their recipients. The method used is qualitative and interviews have been conducted from the producer's perspective with a selection of relevant businesses within the industry. Questions that have also been investigated are how businesses view media for the distribution of their communication. The results show, among other things, that businesses active in second hand-fashion need to stay up-to-date in their communication in order to maintain their place in the market and therefore see digital media as necessary although not entirely unproblematic, in terms of the distribution of the communication. What is also common is that the primary communicative strategies are not to emphasize sustainability, due to not shaming or telling consumers in which way they should live or act. Instead, it is important for the businesses to emphasize messages about clothing care and how clothes last longer and thus retain value. The essay has finally shown that the second hand industry in fashion is closely connected with media development, where digital media are primary components to reach out to the audience.

    Att sälja ett klimathot: En kvalitativ studie om vilka kulturella värderingar och föreställningar som kommuniceras i två reklamfilmer från flygbolagen SAS och KLM2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie undersöker meningsinnehållet i två uppmärksammade reklamfilmer från flygbolagen SAS och KLM. Syftet med studien är att urskilja vilka kulturella värderingar och föreställningar som kommuniceras i reklamfilmerna och hur dessa kommer till uttryck. Samt om det är möjligt att urskilja en underliggande myt i respektive film. Studien anknyter till semiotisk teori, utöver semiotiken ligger Roland Barthes mytteori som ett mer djupgående segment i det teoretiska ramverket. Mytteorin handlar om att belysa masskulturers mytiska karaktär och ideologiska funktion. För att göra undersökningen har en kvalitativ, semiotisk textanalys genomförts av det empiriska materialet. Analysarbetet utgår från ett antal empiriska frågor relaterade till den centrala semiotiska begreppsapparaten.

    Studiens huvudsakliga resultat identifierar en myt i båda reklamfilmerna. Ur analysen av SAS reklamfilm identifierades myten att kulturer formas i möten med varandra och att den skandinaviska identiteten är uppbyggd av och genom kulturella utbyten. I KLM:s reklamfilm påvisas myten att kunna vara en del av den klimatmedvetna gemenskapen och samtidigt fortsätta flyga. Båda filmerna underbyggs och motiveras av värderingar och föreställningar om att resande och kontakten och möten med människor är något nödvändigt. Filmerna tar sig olika former men möts i en universell tanke om att ‘flyget’ är essentiellt för mänsklig identitet idag. Således återfinns ett gemensamt underliggande budskap som förmedlas i båda texterna, men som tar sig olika uttryck och anspelar på olika myter.

    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.

    Stormy Weather: The Pre- and Post-History of Television2016In: International Journal of Communication, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, p. 5304-5323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines Ingmar Bergman's first (and only) television adaptations of dramatist August Strindberg: The Storm (1960) and A Dream Play (1963). Both were broadcast live and favorably received by contemporary critics. A recurrent reaction was that television finally "did justice" to these plays from the early 20th century; implying, as did Raymond Williams in his 1974 book on television, that Strindberg's later drama somehow "anticipated" television. This claim is explored in relation to various thematic and formal expressions of temporality in both plays (motifs of enclosed spaces, telephones, clouds, and faces and the dialectics of progress and repetition) and the specificities of television (the "management of liveness," " mobile privatization," monitoring, etc.). The type of historicity involved in the claim that art may anticipate oncoming media technology is related to Walter Benjamin's notion of pre- and post-history.

    "Men det går ju aldrig att sopa igen spåren från vart du kommer ifrån": En kvalitativ studie om unga samers självrepresentation och identitet på Instagram.2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vad händer när konsumenten har möjligheten att bli producent och ges en chans att representera sig själv istället för att bli representerad av andra? Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vilken betydelse och mening Instagram och den självrepresenterade samiska mediebilden har i några unga samtida samers reflexiva identitetsskapande. Med utgångspunkt i Giddens teori om det självreflexiva projekt som utgör jaget är fokus på hur Instagram används för självrepresentation, kulturell och etnisk tillhörighet och vilken betydelse och mening det har för de unga samerna som utgör studiens respondenter. Hur väljer de unga samerna att använda Instagram för att representera sig själva och sin vardag, hur bildar de gemenskap och hur konstruerar de sin identitet genom möjligheten till självrepresentation via Instagram. Resultaten visar att den mening och betydelse som Instagram har för respondenternas reflexiva identitetsskapande går enbart att förstå i samspel med den samiska historien som individen är en del utav. Instagram möjliggör en arena där individualism och personlighet har främsta rummet och deras egenvalda framställan stärker och förstärker deras egen syn och tillhörighet inom den samiska identiteten och livsstilen samt till viss del inom det övriga majoritetssamhället.

    Geographies of Liveness: Time, Space, and Satellite Networks as Infrastructures of Live Television in the Our World Broadcast2016In: International Journal of Communication, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, p. 5362-5380Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article historicizes the emergence of television satellite infrastructure by exploring a key moment: a 1967 transnational satellite broadcast called Our World, that was to reach viewers across the northern hemisphere, including the USSR. Drawing on archival sources that reveal extensive negotiations among the producing sides, we find that Our World's claimed creation of "global presence" was indeed, as Lisa Parks has argued, a fantasy of modernization tied to temporal and spatial hierarchies of modernization, but one neither exclusive to the West nor uncontested by the show's socialist participants. We argue that the program's temporal claim to conquer space via liveness required the constant assertion of spatial hierarchies and conflicting temporalities, based on unequal and unpredictable material infrastructures, personal relationships, and rival symbolic claims. We describe these temporalized and spatialized conflicts as "geographies of liveness."

    The Dilemmal Socialization on Social Media Platforms: A Qualitative Study on the Experience of Online Socialization and the Infrastructure of Social Media Platforms2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media effects may affect self-perception and the way media users live their offline lives. The purpose of this essay was to examine the phenomenon of social media saturation in order to understand the possible risks to the development of human identity during the adolescent period. Hence, these risks may be generated by being exposed to social comparison, cyberbullying, self-validation, and self-perception in a sensitive age when self-image is still fragile and being formed. The purpose of this essay is to examine the psychological tendencies of human beings while interacting with their peers on social media platforms. Hence, this will give us a clearer view of what would be achieved by conducting interviews. Moreover, a selection of theories will be applied to those interviews in order to associate those theories with what has been said by respondents. Hence, Meyrowitz’s theory will be used in relation to  understanding the identity adaptation to online connection and linked to Goffman’s discussions of “onstage” and “backstage” (Meyrowitz, 1985: 5). After this, the essay will investigate how users’ self-perception and social comparison are enacted while socializing on social media platforms. Furthermore, this essay sheds the light on how identity is constructed online in the sense of belonging to a community on a social media platform as well as of gratification coming from peer validation in a virtual community. To be able to explain this, the “Social Identity Theory” will, therefore, be discussed (Teo, Matti, et al, 2017: 23). This will be discussed by mentioning theories like “Mediatization” (Couldry & Hepp, 2013). And lastly, the sociological concept of Habitus, minted by Pierre Bourdieu will demonstrate the process of adaptation towards unspoken social codes existing in virtual communities (Markham, 2017: 55). 

    As found in the four qualitative semi-structured interviews with social media users, respondents are surrounding themselves with like-minded social groups which provide them with confidence about their own system of beliefs. Nevertheless, their perspectives are often marked by notable social pessimism and a lack of incentive to engage in conflictual interactions with others on social media. The results pointed out the perception among the interviewees that the impact of social media on identity formation is largely confined to adolescent users. Many users self-report significant daily screen time and are aware of the risks of social bubbles. Most of the respondents denied being subjected to cyberbullying, while they were surfing on social media, so the respondents’ physical lives were not affected by cyberbullying even for those who mentioned their exposure to cyberbullying. All the respondents expressed a sense of jealousy to some extent, even though some of them showed awareness of the thought that people post their lives from a perfect angle while hiding the flaws and not showing the imperfections of their lives on social media. Lastly, social comparison was an incentive feeling affected most of the respondents, and in their own experience, social media affected their character development and self-perception since they were exposed to social media at an adolescent age.

    ”För att helgon skall förbli helgonlika, måste de främmande bli syndabockar”: Gestaltningen av gängkriminaliteten och konstruktionen av 'de andra' i alternativa medier och nationell kvällspress2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka hur gängkriminaliteten gestaltas i svenska nyhetsmedier utifrån tre frågeställningar. (1) Vilka likheter och skillnader medietyperna emellan kommer till uttryck vid gestaltningen av gängkriminalitetens problemdefinieringar, orsaksdiagnoser, moraliska bedömningar och lösningsförslag? (2) Uttrycks gängkriminaliteten genom episodiska eller tematiska gestaltningar och hur skiljer sig detta medietyperna emellan? (3) Hur kommer orientalistiska tematiker och konstruktionen av 'vi' och 'de andra' till uttryck vid gestaltningen av gängkriminaliteten och hur skiljer sig detta medietyperna emellan? Detta möjliggörs genom en kvalitativ och komparativ textanalys av nyhetsartiklar med avstamp i Entmans (1993) Gestaltningsteori och Saids (1978) Orientalism. Studiens material utgör två olika medietyper; invandringskritiska alternativa medier och nationell kvällspress, varav urvalsenheterna är Samnytt, Nyheter Idag, Aftonbladet och Expressen. Studiens huvudsakliga resultat pekar mot att ämnen så som politik, lag och ordning, samt invandring utifrån tematiska gestaltningar dominerar hur problem, orsaker, moraliska bedömningar och lösningar presenteras i båda medietyper. Skillnaderna utgör främst hur detta kommer till uttryck, med vilken slagkraft och ifall det görs med fokus på invandring (alternativa medier) eller sociala aspekter med fokus på barn (kvällspress). De episodiska gestaltningarna och orientalistiska tematiker och konstruktioner av 'vi' och 'de andra' kommer enskilt till uttryck i de alternativa medierna.

    Media Objectivity and Bias in Western Coverage of the Russian-Ukrainian Conflict2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present study seeks to identify if journalistic objectivity is compromised in the coverage of the Russian-Ukrainian war and how the various media bias practices are incorporated into news reports. It provides a critical analysis of the portrayal of conflicting sides of the conflict in Western mainstream media, examining how the "us" versus "them" narratives were constructed and how the produced discourse aligns with the principles of peace journalism. The study uses a combination of critical discourse analysis, semiotic, and narrative analysis methods as well as quantitative content analysis to achieve its objectives. Analyzing the content of twelve articles sourced from BBC and CNN, published across two distinct time frames, reveals that Western media coverage disproportionately represents the Ukrainian perspective, with the Russian standpoint largely marginalized or stereotypically characterized. The findings indicate that Western media also normalize or trivialize the role of neo-Nazi organizations in the conflict while downplaying potential war crimes committed by the Ukrainian side. Quantitative content analysis of 99 articles according to criteria adapted from Galtung's model finds a discernible dominance of war journalism over peace journalism, thus propagating divisive narratives. Comparative findings for each digital outlet suggest that the BBC adopts a more aggressive war journalism modality than CNN. The research advocates for a critical reflection on media coverage, the challenging of media biases, and a strive for a more balanced, peace-oriented portrayal of conflicts.

    Huliganism i media: En kritisk diskursanalys över Aftonbladets och Expressens skildring av fotbollsrelaterat våld och hur diskursen förändrats över tid2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate two Swedish, national newspapers and their depiction of football related violence. Through a critical discourse analysis this essay aims to illuminate the discourse practices that are being reproduced in media and also how the discourses have changed over time. The essay analysis articles around two casualties in Sweden (2002 & 2014) that are a direct result of football violence.

    The material contains of twenty-four analyzed articles from Aftonbladet and Expressen.

    A critical discourse analysis has been used for both the theoretical framework and method, with Fairclough’s three-dimensional model as analytical tool.

     

    The result shows that both Aftonbladet and Expressen depict football violence through a wide perspective and describes the problem with the help of multiple agents that have varied experience on the subject. The main discourses that have been distinguished have been named; The discourse of responsibility, The discourse of amendment and The discourse of security. Another less recurrent discourse that have been distinguished is the discourse of the victim. In the analysis it is manifested that the order of discourses has changed over time and that some discourses have been more or less established.

    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.

    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.
