    Engaging Citizens for Climate Change: Challenges for Journalism2021In: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082X, no 6, p. 755-772Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How issues are framed in journalism in terms of problems, solutions, and levels of responsibility is of great importance in order to engage and lead toward individual and collective action. Data journalism has been acknowledged as a practice that often features a high level of interactivity, with the potential to engage the public. In this study, we investigate the content and production of climate change reporting in Swedish public service data journalism and discuss how frames are used in this alternative form of moderated science communication. Our results indicate an unconventional merger between science communication and data journalistic practices where motivational framing is used only to some extent as a way to increase public engagement with climate change. We also found that producers focus on educating and raising awareness rather than engaging the public and that they are guided by the ideal of objectivity.

    Konsten att vara homosexuell på Grindr: En intersektionell studie om begärlighet och gränsdragningar inom queera män digitala dejtingkultur2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur queera män praktiserar och förhåller sig till gränsdragningar kopplade till genusuttryck, etnicitet och ålder i sin digitala dejtingkultur, främst på Grindr. Tidigare forskning visar att olika kroppsliga egenskaper ofta leder till gränsdragningar och vad som anses som begärligt och inte på Grindr, att ha preferenser och att fördöma andra män som inte faller inom dessa. Med teorier om maskuliniteter, hegemonisk maskulinitet och cybercarnality ger jag en bakgrund till dessa gränsdragningar för att försöka förstå varför de finns och vilken betydelse de har. Utifrån en kvalitativ forskningsintervju med inslag av media-go.along gjorde det möjligt att genomföra intervjuer med fyra queera män om deras vanor och uppfattningar om Grindr. Intervjuerna visade att de hade mycket att berätta om sina upplevelser av andra queera män på Grindr. De intervjuade männen berättade om hur de presenterar sig själva, hur de hittar andra och på vilka sätt de kommunicerar/interagerar på Grindr. Det vill säga, deras självpresentation, matchningar och interaktioner, som är de centrala delarna i studiens analys. Intervjuerna och analysen visade att hegemonisk maskulinitet återfinns inom gaycommunityt på samma sätt som bland heterosexuella män. Studien har även gett upphov till nya frågor kring sexuell position och transpersoner, något som jag hävdar borde prägla framtida forskning.

    Fotboll som maktmedel: En kvalitativ framinganalys av The Guardian, Dagens Nyheter och Al Arabiya's gestaltning av Saudiarabiens köp av Newcastle United2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Saudi Arabia has been accused of sportswashing, which involves attempting to enhance its reputation by acquiring the English football club, Newcastle United. This study aims to conduct a framing analysis to explore how Saudi Arabia’s acquisition of Newcastle United can be perceived as an exercise of soft power and how the portrayed images in media construct and reinforce orientalist and eurocentric perspectives about Saudi Arabia and the region. This study analyzes the coverage from the media outlets The Guardian, Dagens Nyheter and the Saudi-based Al Arabiya. It focuses on how the media shapes and presents the image of Saudi Arabia in connection with the acquisition of Newcastle United and to what extent orientalist representations are reflected. Furthermore, the study’s findings indicate that orientalist depictions are identified to a certain extent, particularly in the coverage from The Guardian and Dagens Nyheter. The acquisition of Newcastle United has also resulted in increased soft power effects for Saudi Arabia, where the Saudi-newspaper Al Arabiya constructs a more positive narrative around acquisition of the football club, which can impact both local and global perceptions of the event.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    To be or not to BeReal: En kvalitativ intervjustudie om hur användare upplever och använder den sociala medieplattformen BeReal2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta är en kvalitativ användarstudie där syftet är att få en ökad förståelse av hur användare av den sociala mediaplattformen BeReal ser på sin användning. Specifikt vill studien få fram vad det är som motiverar användare, hur de ser på självrepresentationen på plattformen samt vilken roll plattformens interaktionsmöjligheter har. Ämnet valdes då BeReal, med sitt koncept om en verklighetsspeglande social medieplattform, skapar en undran över hur detta tas emot av användare. Då plattformen är så pass ny finns det inte någon gedigen vetenskaplig forskning kring ämnet, en vetenskapslucka denna studie ämnar fylla. Studien samlade in det empiriska materialet genom semistrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet analyserades sedan med hjälp av de teoretiska ramverken uses and gratification, intrycksstyrning samt interaktionsmöjligheter. Analysen visade att det finns olika motivationer till användandet, de huvudsakliga var att följa med i trenden av att använda nya sociala mediaplattformar, att hålla kontakt med vänner och ta del av deras bilder och att kunna spara och se tillbaka på ens egna bilder. Gällande självrepresentationen kom det fram att informanterna inte ansåg att det går att vara helt äkta eller verklig på sociala medier, men att BeReal är den plattform som kommer närmast. Självrepresentationen influeras dels av BeReals koncept, dels av ens kontakter på plattformen. BeReals interaktionsmöjligheter visade sig även styra både motivationer och självrepresentationen. Utöver att till stor del bekräfta det tidigare forskning kommit fram till gällande andra sociala medieplattformar fick denna studie fram ny kunskap i form av interaktionsmöjligheten ’enkelhet’. Informanterna har ett behov av enkla sociala medieplattformar där en mer verklig självrepresentation är normen.

    Mediated stand-by citizenship: An interview study of the switch between political activity and inactivity in Sweden2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Political participation and civic engagement are terms under constant negotiation in academic research. In order to understand how our active citizenship develops and affects our democratic structures there is need to go beyond seeing media as a tool or method of communication, and rather as an integrated part of the environment in which political participation is conducted. This study investigates how political participation can be channeled, from latency to activity. By interviewing citizens who have historically entered and exited a variety of participatory actions the study managed to identify a new aspect of the citizen’s perspective on citizenship and participation. Building on the notion of stand-by citizenship by Ekman and Amnå (2012), where educated, informed and skilled citizens are monitoring their surroundings until they see need to activate their engagement, I develop the term mediated stand-by citizenship. By this new terminology, the mediated aspect of political participation is conceptualized, and gives an additional approach to studying the stand-by citizens of today.

    Den osynliga algoritmen: En kvalitativ studie om unga kvinnors kunskap och attityder gentemot Instagrams algoritm2021Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att undersöka unga kvinnors kunskap och attityd gentemot algoritmer på den sociala medieplattformen Instagram. Tidigare forskning inom algoritmstudier visar på att det finns en bristfällig kunskap om algoritmer. Algoritmer är en integrerad del i våra liv och samhällen, på det sätt att de har ett stort inflytande på majoriteten av de offentliga sektionerna, som juridik, sjukvård, politik och medieorganisationer (Booth, Bucher & Gran 2020, s. 1780). Frågeställningarna vi undersökte var “I vilken utsträckning reflekterar unga kvinnor kring personifierade flöden?” och “I vilken utsträckning är respondenterna läskunniga i enlighet med Livingstones definition av mediekunskap?”. För att undersöka detta har vi genomfört kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med sex unga kvinnor mellan 18 och 25 år. Därefter analyserade vi respondenternas svar med hjälp av Livingstones begreppsdefinition av mediekunskap för att kunna besvara våra forskningsfrågor. Resultatet visade att majoriteten av respondenterna inte visste vad en algoritm var. Det fanns dock en övergripande analytisk förmåga på det sätt att samtliga respondenter reflekterade över att deras flöden var personifierade vilket de upplevde som obehagligt. Slutsatsen är därför att unga kvinnor reflekterar över sina personifierade flöden. De är medvetna om att det är något som styr vilket innehåll de får ta del av, men har ingen kunskap om att det är algoritmer som är den bakomliggande orsaken. Respondenterna visade på en varierad läskunnighet på det sätt att de visade skilda förmågor inom de olika begreppen. Vår studie visade att endast en respondent hade kunskap om vad en algoritm är och var därför den enda som visade kunskap inom alla de fyra områden tillgång, innehållsskapande, analys och utvärdering.

    The Cultural Production of Climate Disinformation: A Social Network Analysis of the NIPCC2022Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis in media and communication studies examines the production and dissemination of disinformation regarding climate change. Utilizing a synthesis of social network analysis, cultural industries, and disinformation studies. It is a study of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change and its production of texts. Arguing that this is a form of cultural production and should be studied as such. Conducting a social network analysis to illustrate the network structure behind the production and asking the question of how and why this is occurring. Exploring themes of post-truth, scientific realism, and conspiracy theories. The result of the study concludes that the NIPCC is producing and disseminating climate disinformation. Providing an outline of the process and chain of production. Further suggesting that it is financed by economic and political elites through a system of patronage as a means of protecting their interests. Lastly discussing the function production of disinformation serves as “corrupted infrastructures of meaning” supporting alternative epistemological realities.

    Ensam i socialt nätverk - samtidens paradox: Ett fenomenologiskt perspektiv på relationen mellan sociala medier och känslan av ensamhet2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie ämnar till att undersöka relationen mellan sociala medier och känslan av ensamhet ur ett medie- och kommunikationsvetenskapligt perspektiv. Utifrån teorier om fenomenologi och media affordance har fyra kvinnliga ungdomar intervjuats i syfte att få en djupare förståelse för vilken effekt olika sociala mediekanaler har på känslan av ensamhet och gemenskap. Med hänsyn till att studien inföll under samma period som Covid-19 pandemin avser även studien ur ett bredare perspektiv uppmärksamma hur sådana samhällskriser tenderar påverka upplevelsen av sociala medier och dess effekter.

    Studiens resultat visar på en genomgående ambivalens i förhållningssättet till sociala medier som upplevs ha både positiva och negativa effekter beroende på sinnestillstånd, sammanhang och dess användning. Sociala medier ses i allmänhet som ett användbart verktyg för att förbättra vänskapsrelationer och främja en känsla av gemenskap. Samtidigt upplevs sociala medier skapa en inre stress, ångest och ensamhetskänslor. Det visade sig att de positiva aspekterna associerades till snapchat och messenger som erbjuder direktkommunikation mellan en eller flera människor, medan de negativa aspekterna var starkt förknippat med funktionen att scrolla flödet på instagram. Intressant var dock att de negativa effekter som sociala medier i normalfallet upplevdes medföra tenderade minska under Covid-19 pandemin. Studien visar att sociala medier förstärkte känslan av gemenskap och mildrade känslan av ensamhet under pandemin.

    The role of journalism in a time of national crisis: Examining criticism and consensus in Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden during the Covid-19 pandemic2023In: Communicating a pandemic: Crisis management and Covid-19 in the Nordic countries / [ed] B. Johansson; Ø. Ihlen; J. Lindholm; M. Blach-Ørsten, Gothenburg: Nordicom, 2023, p. 261-282Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this chapter is to examine the conditions for the practice of critical journalism in Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden, during the Covid-19 pandemic. We focus on two aspects, one practical and one discursive. First, we focus on journalists’ access to relevant information about the pandemic, as access plays a key role in the practice of critical reporting. Second, we focus on metajournalistic discourse, understood as how public debate about ­journalism shapes the practice of journalism. We found that information access was challenged in all three countries, but in different ways. We also found elements of a metajournalistic discourse. In Denmark, this discourse expressed concern about journalism being too critical, while in Sweden and Iceland, the concern was more a lack of critical reporting. We argue that the differences found can best be explained by the different Covid-19 communication strategies in the three countries.

    Abstract [en]

    This afterword is an attempt to draw some general conclusions from the case studies presented in the individual articles and try to situate the analyses from these in a broader context of globalisation and modernity. It is specifically argued that symbolic assets and actions are becoming increasingly important for the modern project, and hence that new types of value forms, e.g. sign value, are coming to be important as the basis for the transformation of nations and regions into commodities. The article ends with discussing some epistemological and ontological implications for future research in this area.

    Generational analysis as a methodological approach to study mediatised social change2017In: Digital Technologies and Generational Identity: ICT Usage Across the Life Course / [ed] Sakari Taipale; Chris Gilleard; Terhi-Anna Wilska, Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge, 2017, p. 23-36Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction Time and again, it is said that we are living in an era of rapid technological change, or even one of increased acceleration (Rosa, 2013 [2005]). This idea of accelerating technological change, especially that involving media technologies, also serves as a basis for contemporary theories of ‘media generations’. These theories argue that in contrast to previous generations who were socialised into print media culture, those born over the past 50−60 years have seen a much more rapid transformation of technologies, impacting more strongly on the formation of generational identity. According to Gary Gumpert and Robert Cathcart, the faster pace of technological change leads to the formation of distinct media generations.

    Generational temporalities and rhythm-analysis2019In: Comunicazioni Sociali, ISSN 0392-8667, Vol. 2019, no 2, p. 202-214Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In his theory of generations Ortega y Gassett suggested what others have come to call the "pulserate" hypothesis, where he argued that generational exchanges occurred in thirty-year cycles. His student Julién Marías later qualified this to fifteen years. This mechanistic theory has, of course, met with criticism - for being too mechanistic, and for being insensitive to different types of temporalities. Nonetheless, the self-perception of generations is not only guided by the relation to coevals, but also to, what Ricoeur calls "contemporaries, predecessors, and successors", that is, the generations that came before, those with whom one shares experiences as coevals, and those who will succeed oneself. In this paper will be discussed the relations between the - often nostalgic - memories that communify coevals, and the experiences of generation as kinship that impact on a person's perception of their place in the generational succession order, and how this can be developed into a generational rhythm analysis. It is argued that the rhythm of collective social life, which is arrhythmic along diversities in the combination of life-course and generational features seems to prevent the increase in "generational turnover" that could be expected through the increased speed of the "technological turnover" that follow from digitisation.

    Generational “we-sense”, “they-sense” and narrative: An epistemological approach to media and social change2019In: Empiria. Revista de metodología de ciencias sociales, ISSN 2174-0682, no 42, p. 21-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A classic epistemological problem in the social sciences is how to analyse and understand social change. In media and communication studies, for example, the concept of mediatisation has sparked off such a debate, since one of the main criticisms against the approach is that researchers rather take change for granted without being able to empirically establish if and how change has occurred. In this article is suggested a model for analysing social change through an analysis of how generational identity as “we-sense” is produced in narratives about media use. The empirical basis for the discussion is picked from a recently finished project on media generations in Sweden and Estonia, building on foremost qualitative material. The article concludes with accounting for the merits of using a generational perspective for analysing social change.

    Abstract [en]

    In this chapter three approaches to mediatization are discussed: the institutional, the technological, and the media as world. Each of these has a different ontological and epistemological background, and it is argued that this has consequences on which questions are posed, and which kinds of answers are possible to give. For these backgrounds it is accounted, with a special focus on how these approaches theorize the relationship between media and society, how media are defined and which historical perspective is privileged.
