    Narrativas Transmídia e Valor nos Ambientes de Mídias Digitais2015In: Parágrafo: Revista Científica de Comunicação Social, ISSN 2317-4919, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 113-123Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [pt]

    O Este artigo discute o fenômeno das narrativas transmídia e das adaptações em termos da valorização deste gênero específi co de produção midiática. Aborda ainda os diferentes tipos de valor gerado na relação produção-consumo e traz informações para quem aprecia a produção de narrativa transmídia. Por meio da apresentação de dois exemplos europeus, revela que este formato, muitas vezes, aparece em ambientes de produções de serviço público de mídia, sem fi ns lucrativos, enquanto que na indústria commercial da comunicação há maior envolvimento com as elaborações multiplataformas por suas possibilidades lucrativas.

    This article discusses the phenomenon of transmedia storytelling and adaptations in terms of which values are produced around this specifi c kind of media production, which diff erent kinds of value that is generated in relation to its production and consumptions, and for whom the production of transmedia storytelling and adaptations is ascribed value. Against two European examples of transmedia storytelling it is argued that this narrative form oft en appear in non-profi t motivated public service production environments, whereas the commercial media industry more oft en engage in multi-platform productions, since this type of production makes it easier to meet outer demands of economic kinds.

    Notes From Inside the Factory: The Production and Consumption of Signs and Sign Value in Media Industries2005In: Social Semiotics, ISSN 1035-0330, E-ISSN 1470-1219, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 289-306Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article aims at giving some theoretical reflections and possible clarifications to theories on production and consumption of symbolic goods and commodities. It is argued that the production of sign commodities generate various kinds of values, which also differ from those produced in material commodity production. With the example of the television audience this article puts forth the idea of the audience as a pure sign commodity, a commodity solely made up of sign structures, produced by semiotic labour.

    Passion and Nostalgia in Generational Media Experiences2016In: European Journal of Cultural Studies, ISSN 1367-5494, E-ISSN 1460-3551, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 250-264Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    One component in the generational experience strongly related to media is the intimate and often passionate relation that is developed towards media technologies and content from one’s formative youth period: musical genres and stars, as well as reproduction technologies such as the vinyl record, music cassette tapes, comics and other now dead media forms. Passion, however, is a dialectic concept that not only refers to the joyful desire and intense emotional engagement of cherished objects but also includes its dialectic opposite in the form of pain and suffering. This passion, it is argued in the article, is activated by the nostalgic relationships to past media experiences, the bittersweet remembrances of media habits connected to earlier life phases of one’s own. Taking its point of departure in generational theory of Mannheim and others, this article analyses a series of focus group interviews with Swedish and Estonian media users tentatively belonging to four different generations. Based on the analysis of these interviews, it is suggested that passion and nostalgia are produced, first, in relation to old technologies, second, in relation to childhood memories and, third, at the limits of shared intergenerational experience, that is, at the moment when one realises that one’s own experiences of past media forms cannot be shared by younger generations, and especially one’s own children.

    Personal and Mobile Media in the Digital Economy2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses how mobile phone owners turn from being regarded by the industry as users of an interpersonal medium, to a mass audience along some of the principles for how this “audience commodity” has been constructed in previous mass media settings, centering on the radio, television and the press. One purpose is to critically examine the relation between interpersonal and mass media, such as how technological developments connected to digitization has altered the market for media commodities and contributed to the development of new business models. The second purpose is to discuss the consequences of this shift, and its consequences for our ontological understanding of what it means to use a mobile phone.

    Questioning Entertainment Value: Moments of Disruption in the History of Swedish Entertainment Television2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early 1920’s John Reith of the BBC summarized the goals that the organization still adhere to: ‘To enrich people's lives with programmes and services that inform, educate and entertain’. This chapter deals with the last of these three ambitions, and in a historically informed genre-analytical manner describes the history of Swedish television entertainment. The focus is on four important moments of disruption, and their consequences for larger generic trends. The paper exemplifies with some such productions that have been generically important and/or specific for their time (e.g. the launch of reality series Expedition: Robinson in 1997, and the start of the reality drama).

    Symbolic Production and Value in Media Industries2009In: Journal of Cultural Economy, ISSN 1753-0350, E-ISSN 1753-0369, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 345-361Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses value creation within the fields of cultural production. It departs from Bourdieu's field model, and seeks to develop it to fit unrestricted cultural production, for example television production. Bourdieu for the most part discussed the production of value (or forms of capital) in relation to fields of restricted cultural production, that is, within the fine arts (e.g. art, literature). Although one of his best known works dealt with television, one cannot say that he used the possibilities inherent in his own theory thoroughly enough to analyse this field of mass production. This article builds on recent discussions on the role of field theory in media studies, and seeks to contribute to the development of a theory of value production in fields of large-scale or unrestricted cultural production. It is argued that the conflation of commercial value with other kinds of value is more intense in the subfield of unrestricted cultural production, as production in this part of the field needs to obey outer demand in a way that production at the pole of restricted production does not.

    Television Journalism, Politics and Entertainment: Power and Autonomy in the Field of Television Journalism2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses two trends in the debates about contemporary television journalism. Firstly, journalism is said to be increasingly subsumed an economic logic, privileging entertainment before serious journalistic practices. Most often this is framed as if entertainment is eating its way into serious journalism, affecting it negatively and thus being detrimental for the political public sphere and political reasoning. Secondly, it is often pointed to a changed relation between journalism and politicians, where the latter have lost some of their power, for example political debates. This paper relates these two trends and argue, against a field model inspired by Bourdieu, that it is not entertainment that is eating its way into journalism, but the other way around: Rather than having been absorbed by entertainment, journalism has differentiated, become more autonomous as a sub-field of cultural production, and has gradually come to dominate both factual and entertainment television.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses the production of live television formats, as they have developed in Europe during the past decade. The analytical examples are taken from entertainment as well as factual television, and from public service as well as commercial contexts. In the article, it is argued that there has been an approximation between the textual features and generic and narrative structures of entertainment and factual live television, and a model is presented that is supposed to account for these narrative patterns.

    The Forms of Value: Problems of Convertibility Between Fields of Cultural Production2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Media production in late capitalism is often measured in terms of economic value. If value is defined as the worth of a thing, a standard or measure, being the result of social praxis and negotiation, it follows that this worth can be of other kinds than the mere economic. This is, for example, the reasoning behind field theory (Bourdieu), where the generation of field-specific capital (value) can be converted between fields. The full extent of the consequences of such a theory of convertibility between fields of cultural production, centred on different forms of value, is, however yet to be explored. This is the task of this paper. Especially is focussed on how value is constructed differently depending on the relations of the valuing subject to the production process, something that becomes highly relevant in digital media environments, where users are increasingly drawn into the production process.

    Abstract [en]

    Media production in late capitalism is often measured in terms of economic value. If value is defined as the worth of a thing, a standard or measure, being the result of social praxis and negotiation between producers and consumers in various combinations, it follows that this worth can be of other kinds than the mere economic. This is, for example, the reasoning behind field theory (Bourdieu), where the generation of field-specific capital (value) is deeply dependent on the belief shared by the competing agents within the field. The full extent of the consequences of such a theory of convertibility between fields of cultural production, centred on different forms of value, is, however yet to be explored. This is the task of this article. It especially focuses on how value is constructed differently depending on the relations of the valuing subject to the production process, something that becomes highly relevant in digital media environments, where users are increasingly drawn into the production process.

    The Labour of Media Use: The Two Active Audiences2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The 'active audience' has theoretically been conceptualised from two perspectives: in political economy, from Smythe to Andrejevic it is suggested that television audiences work for the networks while watching. Although contested it has survived among television scholars, also feeding into the discussion on web surveillance techniques. The other conceptualisation comes from reception theory, where the interpretive work by audiences is seen as resulting in identities, taste cultures and social difference. This paper relates these perspectives by considering audiences as involved in two production-consumptions circuits: [1] the viewer activities produces social difference (identities, cultural meaning) in a social and cultural economy, which is then [2] made the object of productive consumption as part of the activities of the media industry, the end product being economic profit. The paper argues for the relevance of analysing these as separate circuits, and that recent debate on the active audience has misrecognised the difference.

    Abstract [en]

    The ‘active audience’ has theoretically been conceptualized from two perspectives: in political economy, it is suggested that television audiences work for the networks while watching and that they contribute to the valorization process with their labour. Although contested, it has survived among media scholars, also feeding into the discussion on web surveillance techniques. The other conceptualization comes from reception theory, media ethnography and cultural studies, where the interpretive work by audiences is seen as productive and resulting in identities, taste cultures and social difference. This article relates these perspectives by considering audiences as involved in two production–consumptions circuits: (1) the viewer activities produce social difference (identities and cultural meaning) in a social and cultural economy, which is then (2) made the object of productive consumption as part of the activities of the media industries, the end product being economic profit.This article argues for the relevance of analysing these as separate circuits, with different kinds of labour at their centre, and that recent debates on the active audience often misrecognize the difference.

    Abstract [en]

    A criticism raised about mediatization research is that although the concept of mediatization presupposes a long-term temporal perspective, there are few projects that have studied the process methodologically over time. This article argues that a generational approach can serve as one suggested analytical solution to the problem of studying long-term social, cultural, and societal change. The article describes a recently finished project on media generations in Sweden and Estonia and discusses overcoming the problem of conducting research on mediatization as a long-term process. Through intergenerational and cross-cultural analysis, the article shows how media memories from childhood and the formative years of youth can reveal specific traits in the historical process and how the role of the media has changed over time in the minds of different generations. The article focuses on four generations that had their formative years during significant historical moments in the late 20th century; these formative moments were marked by specificities both in the respective national media landscapes and in the vast historical and geopolitical differences between the two countries.

    The uberisation of higher education: Datafied dynamics in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic2022In: The Covid-19 Pandemic as a Challenge for Media and Communication Studies, London: Routledge, 2022, p. 23-34Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Data capitalism builds on the expansion of markets through the datafication of evermore social domains via social media, search engines and interconnected online communication technologies. Education is one such domain in which datafication has entered, and with the COVID-19 pandemic, the introduction of large-scale online teaching has become a necessity, which has further speeded up the transfer from campus-based to online education. With the move of teachers and students from on-site to on-line mode, universities are now increasingly acting like platform companies. Classrooms, lecture halls, offices and meeting rooms are abandoned, and the sites of learning are now delegated to the private sphere of the home of lecturers and students. First, this means transferring the responsibilities for creating a functional educational environment to teachers and students. Second, this would transform large partsof educational practices, thus affecting the very essence of knowledge production and dissemination. This aim of the chapter is to discuss the economic and administrative dynamics behind this transformation on the basis of the different value regimes underlying data capitalism. It is argued that the drive towards the platformisation – or uberisation as one could provocatively label it – of education is partly driven by an economic, and partly by administrative rationality.

    The Value Dynamics of Data Capitalism: Cultural Production and Consumption in a Datafied World2022In: New Perspectives in Critical Data Studies: The Ambivalences of Data Power / [ed] Hepp, Andreas; Jarke, Juliane; Kramp, Leif, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2022, p. 167-186Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The metaphor that ‘data is the new oil’ points to the perception of data as a valuable resource in the form of raw material for algorithmic processing at the centre of data capitalism and its underlying process of datafication. While many point to broader consequences of datafication for social life there is still a need for analytical models to understand the complexity, scale, and dynamics behind these transformations. To focus on data as value is one such approach that is pursued in this chapter. The point of departure is Dewey’s Theory of Valuation (1939), which is discussed in relation to anthropological, sociological, and economic theories of value. The second section presents an analytical model for the study of the dynamics of data capitalism and the process of datafication. This is then illustrated with two examples that highlight the relations between the inner dynamics of data capitalism before the chapter ends with some conclusive recommendations for future empirical research.

    User-generated content was launched in the early 1990s as a conceptfor describing media content produced outside of professional media institu-tions by everyday media users. It gained widespread popularity around 2005and in the article it is argued that the rise of the concept coincides with the in-teractive web and the ability for industrialized media and culture production totake advantage of the productivity of ordinary users. The article discusses firstthe frameworks of production of UGC, including the business models of theplatform economy into which this kind of content is drawn. Secondly it dis-cusses the types of users who generate content, and thirdly it accounts for someof the criticism the concept has met. The article ends with situating UGC in thelonger history of media production and suggests an explanation for why theconcept appeared at the time it did.

    Visions of Europe: Cultural technologies of nation-states2006In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 189-206Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    With the expansion of the European Union eastwards,nations have adopted various strategies for being included in the Europeancommunity. This article discusses examples of cultural technologies used bypost-communist countries in aligning with Western Europe. It is argued that thephenomenon is in fact not new, as the marketing of nations has occurred since atleast the World’s Fairs of the 19th century. However, while the World’s Fairsaddressed the nation-states of high industrialism, cultural technologies are thefeatures used in a post-industrialized context, where it is more important toimpress with abilities of symbolic production rather than with traditionalindustrial production. In terms of modernization processes, it can be argued thatthe increased emphasis on symbolic production indicates a shift fromtechno-industrial modernization to techno-cultural modernization.

    Heuristics of the Algorithm. Big Data, User Interpretation and Translation Strategies2015In: Big Data and Society, E-ISSN 2053-9517, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 1-12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Intelligence on mass media audiences was founded on representative statistical samples, analysed by statisticians at the market departments of media corporations. The techniques for aggregating user data in the age of pervasive and ubiquitous personal media (e.g. laptops, smartphones, credit cards/swipe cards and radio-frequency identification) build on large aggregates of information (Big Data) analysed by algorithms that transform data into commodities. While the former technologies were built on socio-economic variables such as age, gender, ethnicity, education, media preferences (i.e. categories recognisable to media users and industry representatives alike), Big Data technologies register consumer choice, geographical position, web movement, and behavioural information in technologically complex ways that for most lay people are too abstract to appreciate the full consequences of. The data mined for pattern recognition privileges relational rather than demographic qualities. We argue that the agency of interpretation at the bottom of market decisions within media companies nevertheless introduces a ‘heuristics of the algorithm’, where the data inevitably becomes translated into social categories. In the paper we argue that although the promise of algorithmically generated data is often implemented in automated systems where human agency gets increasingly distanced from the data collected (it is our technological gadgets that are being surveyed, rather than us as social beings), one can observe a felt need among media users and among industry actors to ‘translate back’ the algorithmically produced relational statistics into ‘traditional’ social parameters. The tenacious social structures within the advertising industries work against the techno-economically driven tendencies within the Big Data economy.

    Conducting Cross-Cultural Online Audience Research with two Generations: Methodological Experiences and Reflections from the Pandemic Context2023In: AoIR Selected Papers of Internet Research 2022, The Association of Internet Researchers , 2023Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses methodological, ethical, and empirical problematics related to forced changes in the research design of a comparative project during the Covid-19 pandemic, and its wider implications for future online audience research. The larger project aims to understand media users’ attitudes towards corporate and state surveillance in countries with different historical surveillance regimes: Estonia, Portugal, and Sweden. In a mixed-methods design, comprising an online survey and focus groups (FGs), we sampled participants from two generational cohorts: born in 1946-1953 and in 1988-1995. In each country, we planned six face-to-face FGs with people from these generational cohorts, divided into three gender-balanced groups with different profiles: higher education; mixed education, living in small cities/countryside; secondary education. The paper discusses the challenges of conducing FGs online, namely the effects of the technological interface on the group size and interaction, the importance of digital skills, and ethics-related considerations. Although we encountered cultural differences between the three countries, our main methodological lessons and suggestions for further audience studies center on the need to consider the subtle facets of inter-generational differences when planning online research. As we witnessed, not all barriers were rooted in access to technology and connectivity. The level of digital skills and self-confidence in use also played a role in participants' possibilities and willingness for taking part in online research. Further research is needed to explore how age and online methods intersect, and the role online settings play, in the experience of focus group and interview participants with various social backgrounds.
