    Mobilization as Communication: A Latin American contribution to the study of social movements2016In: Commons: revista de comunicación y ciudadanía digital, ISSN 2255-3401, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 93-117Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

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

    Mobilization as communication: A Latin American Perspective to the Study of Social Movements2016In: Social Movements Around the World, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

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

    Voices from the margins: People, media, and the struggle for land in Brazil2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

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

     

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

     

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

    Ativismo mídiatico circunstancial – uma análise da relação entre representações mídiáticas e políticas2016In: Animus: Revista Interamericana de Comunicação Midiática, ISSN 1677-907X, E-ISSN 2175-4977, Vol. 15, no 30, p. 118-129Article in journal (Refereed)

    The circumstantial media activist – an analysis of the relation between media and political representation

    Alternative or radical media (Downing, 2000) are kinds of media production common among social movements whose members do not see their causes represented in mainstream media. This is the case of the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement (MST), which since 1984 has created media outlets and produced content for different platforms, becoming later active in the area of media and communication rights in Brazil. Based on fieldwork carried out in 2013 and 2014 this article proposes a perspective to communication rights is attentive to the structural configuration of media landscape and not only to the provision of technology and production skills. This study shows that collective action and promotion of structural change are still relevant alongside new technologies.

    En bostadsrättsförenings påverkan i kommunikation genom en Internetportal2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Internet  has  given  possibilities  to  a  whole  new world within communication. Nowadays  the communication  inside organisations and companies  takes place  through  the Internet. The  idea  of  this paper  arose when one of  the  authors discussed  the  general  involvement of  the  tenant-owner’s association  in  the committee. Providing a new channel  for  communication  through a homepage  could  affect  the  attitude  of  the  tenants.  We  were  curious  of  what  effect  on communication  introducing a homepage would give. Also how you would  reach  the proposed effect, which is to increase the communication in the association. Through feasibility study we examined  the way of how the members communicated. After  the production of  the homepage we could see the effect of communication by having personal interviews.   Our  conclusion  is  that  the  communication  has  been  simplified  for members  and  for  the committee. Unfortunately not all members have used  the new  service,  this has been analysed. We  think  that  a  more  intensive  marketing  would  lead  to  more  interest.  The  user  must  be motivated and see the benefit of the product.

    Vem slår på djungeltrumman?: En studie om vilka som syns i public service-mediers artiklar om Järvaområdet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Vilka syns i public services artiklar om en av Sveriges mest (ö)kända förorter? Hur skildras de, och har detta något att göra med hur invandrare behandlats utifrån ett postkolonialt perspektiv? Genom att göra en kvantitativ innehållsanalys och sedan en framinganalys på sju utvalda artiklar från de första 15 veckorna år 2017 ska denna studie ta reda på vem som får uttala sig om det omdiskuterade Järvaområdet. Resultatet av innehållsanalysen blev tre diagram som visar hur vita myndighetsmän och politiker dominerar i samtalen kring Järva.

     

    Textanalysen visar att rättsväsendet ofta målas upp som en viktig del för att åtgärda problemen i området. Artiklarna nämner problem i områden generellt, men utan en närmare definition för vilka problem som syftas på eller vilka som drabbas utav dem. Lösningen enligt framingmetodens uppdelning av artikeln är alltid fler poliser eller bättre resurser för rättsväsendet. Även om ord som kan ge läsaren postkoloniala kopplingar inte används av artikelns skribent i brödtexten kan de förekomma i citat som skribenten valt att lyfta fram. Eftersom framingteorin menar att artikeln målar upp en ram för mottagaren att ta del av innebär även ordval som citeras från någon annan som en stor del av hur mottagaren uppfattar artikeln.

     

    Slutsatsen är därför att SVT och SR som redaktioner inte medvetet tycks reproducera postkoloniala bilder av förorten, men att detta ändå blir effekten av en ojämn representation där vita män får tala för den socioekonomiskt svaga invandraren som något som ska lösas eller åtgärdas. Effekten av detta kan bli att läsaren ser på dessa personer som problem i samhället, vilket kan öka stigmatiseringen kring förorter som de i Järvaområdet.

    Women politicians under construction: Russian journalists and editors about gendered representations of politicians and their production2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the few well-known Russian women politicians Irina Khakamada wrote in her book “Sex in big politics”: “[As awoman] you are welcome to be sniper, tamer, war reporter. You are, however, not welcome to politics, because politics ispower”. The way women politicians are perceived in political circles, as well as in public in general, to a high degreedepends on politicians’ media representations. It makes intersection of gender, media, and politics, and its dimensionalcomplex of powers, an especially important arena to study. With few women in the political sphere and highly feminizedjournalistic profession, Russia constitutes an interesting case, especially taking into account the Soviet interpretation ofgender equality achievement and the Post-Soviet backlash. Journalists and editors of the Russian quality press will beinterviewed in an attempt to answer the question why, when and by what means women politicians are gender framed in themedia discourse.

    Challenges of ongoing conflict research: Transdisciplinary ethnography in post-2014 Ukraine2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The transdisciplinary collaborative project “Propaganda and management of information in the Ukraine-Russia conflict” that the authors are a part of, focuses on the Ukrainian media and uses ethnography as its primary methodology. We have been interviewing various actors involved in production of information flows in the post-2014 Ukraine: journalists, media and security experts, historians, PR-managers etc. What most of the informants pointed to was the recent shift in their perception of their role in the changes that the country is going through: they highlight their roles as activists and change agents in the society. Coming from different research fields (history and media and communication studies), we have been reflecting upon the tension between our striving at academic neutrality and the different disciplinary approaches, as well as unavoidable emotional involvement in the subject we scrutinize. 

    The paper is based on auto-ethnography wherein we reflect on the challenges the researchers face when conducting ethnographic research on activists and dealing with such sensitive issues as information warfare and armed conflict. This becomes especially problematic when scholars come from the countries involved in the conflict, Ukraine and Russia. How do our feelings of guilt, shame, anger, affection, attachment, love, interact with our professional goals and with our dealing with the material? How do they influence our interaction with the informants and each other? And how can we empower our informants, while remaining in the framework of academic research?

    This analysis contributes to the ethnographic studies on crisis and post-crisis societies. It continues the discussion about the role of emotions in ethnographic research, where we compare our experiences of ethical dilemmas, inspired by, e.g., Hoffmann (2007). Although this issue, in the context of Ukraine, has been partly addressed (e.g., Malyutina 2017),such an auto-ethnographic, self-reflexive work is rare in the Western scholarship that largely applies quantitative methods and focuses on the content, not people’s experiences.

    Fighting climate change starts with journalists: An analysis of the news coverage of the annual United Nations climate summits by the BBC online between 2008 and 20182019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is one of the biggest threats the world is currently facing and it seems that people are able to significantly influence this threat. In order for people to understand the urgency of fighting climate change it is important that they are well informed and that they understand how their actions can matter. In this research, a quantitative content analysis with a discourse analytical approach is used to analyze a selection of articles by the BBC online covering the annual United Nations climate summits between 2008 and 2018 with a focus on their usage of constructive elements. The amount of negative statements in the articles is as big as the positive and hopeful statements together and in most cases the articles lack background information. Although the BBC uses many different perspectives in their articles, there is a lot of room to improve their articles by including more constructive elements. They could provide more background information to issues, quotes, and statements used in their articles and rather than only stating existing and possible problems they could include more solutions and focus more on the future.

    Kort, lättsamt och dramatiskt: en undersökning av tv-nyheternas utveckling 1990-20102012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har gjort en kvantitativ innehållsanalys av inslag i SVT:s Rapport och TV4:s Nyheterna under tre perioder. Undersökningen fokuserade på hur pass snuttifierade, trivialiserade och dramatiserade nyhetsinslagen är. Syftet var att se på utvecklingen under tjugo års tid sedan tv-monopolet avskaffades och en kommersiell tv-kanal infördes och utgångspunkten för undersökningen var Kent Asps tidigare forskning som anser att dessa tre begrepp, inklusive begreppet personifiering, är utmärkande för kommersialiserad tv.

    De tv-nyheter som har ingått i min undersökning är Rapports och TV4-nyheternas sändningar från första veckan i december 1990, 2000 och 2010. De olika delarna som analyserades var längden på inslag, längden på soundbites, längden på bildbitar, vilka personer som intervjuas, vilka ämnesområden som sändningarna rapporterar om, om rapporteringen handlar om brott och om den tar upp dramatiska händelser.

    Resultaten visar att det skett en utveckling mot en viss form av kommersialisering inom tv-nyheterna, men att den inte skiljer de olika nyhetsprogrammen åt så mycket som teorierna om kommersialisering tycks tro.

    Min slutsats var att även om båda nyhetsprogrammen har blivit mer kommersiella enligt Asps definitioner, betyder det inte att det journalistiska innehållet har blivit lidande. Störst skillnader visade snuttifiering och trivialisering. Detta kan visa vilka uttrycksformer som ligger i tiden, samt att ämnen som engagerar människor är viktiga för att nå framgång på publikmarknaden, oavsett om medieföretaget är annons- eller licensfinansierat.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper is an attempt to replicate Kristine Jörgensen study of auditory functions of sound in the video game World of Warcraft, but doing so on a different game, and that game is League of Legends. By using social semiotic’s multimodal theory I hope not only to replicate the results of Jögensens study, but also come with some new insight in to the field of communication as well as contributing to sound studies which compared to visual representations are not as common. However, the focus is on communication through different semiotic representations. In the end, the results are quite positive although not ground breaking by any means.

    Abstract [en]

    Recent years technological development has been rapid, today smartphone users have theability to carry out matters that a few a years ago required a computer. In this study a surveywas conducted of how mobile internet user’s habits look, what are the characteristicsof mobile internet usage? Ten respondents kept a logbook in which they filled in a detailedschedule for each activity, among other things, where they were during the visit andwhat they visited. Later the ten respondents were interviewed to get a deeper impression ontheir mobile internet usage.The results show that the most common place for surfing was at home, although respondentsthought that they occurred during transport. The most visited sites were news; the mostcommon duration for an activity was two minutes. Respondents had a consistently positiveattitude towards the mobile internet; a number of them described how it simplifies things intheir day-to-day life. One weakness of the mobile internet that was mentioned a couple oftimes during the study was the speed but also the reception of the internet.
