    Communicative AI and Techno-Semiotic Mediatization: Understanding the Communicative Role of the Machine2024Ingår i: Human-Machine Communication, ISSN 2638-602X, Vol. 7, s. 65-81Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Mediatization discourse has so far mainly been centered on media from institutional or social-constructionist approaches. The technological developments within communications industries coupled with the wider societal process of datafication might, however, beg for dusting off the smaller, although the long-time existing, technological approach to mediatization as a complement to the two other approaches, in order to understand aspects of automation and human-machine communication. This theoretical article explores how existing mediatization approaches can refocus to include lessons learned from human-machine communication. The first section accounts for the main mediatization approaches. The second section discusses debates on communication, artificiality, and meaning-making. The last section takes the example of the recruitment interview for discussing how mediatization theory can benefit from including a technological approach with influx from human-machine communication, as well as how human-machine communication can learn from wider discussions within mediatization theory.

    Mediatization and Human-Machine Communication: Trajectories, Discussions, Perspectives2024Ingår i: Human-Machine Communication, ISSN 2638-6038, Vol. 7, s. 7-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    As research fields, mediatization and Human-Machine Communication (HMC) have distinct historical trajectories. While mediatization research is concerned with the fundamental interrelation between the transformation of media and communications and cultural and societal changes, the much younger field of HMC delves into human meaning-making in interactions with machines. However, the recent wave of “deep mediatization,” characterized by an increasing emphasis on general communicative automation and the rise of communicative AI, highlights a shared interest in technology’s role within human interaction. This introductory article examines the trajectories of both fields, demonstrating how mediatization research “zooms out” from overarching questions of societal and cultural transformations, while HMC tends to “zoom in” to approach the concrete situatedness of the interaction between humans and machines. It is argued that we need to combine both perspectives to better understand how the automation of communication transforms the social construction of culture and society. This article offers an overview of the key themes explored in this thematic issue, highlighting the productive intersection of HMC and mediatization within each article. Additionally, it identifies potential avenues for future research emerging from this fruitful intersection.

    Toward a Datafied Mindset: Conceptualizing Digital Dynamics and Analogue Resilience2024Ingår i: Social Media + Society, E-ISSN 2056-3051, Vol. 10, nr 2Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the ways in which what we call the analogue and the datafied mindsets perceive the functioning of the datafied world. Based on a qualitative interview study of two generations of media users in Estonia, Portugal, and Sweden, we present and analyze underlying patterns in participants’ media attitudes and related practices. We show that belonging to a media generation does not always produce a homogeneous mindset or a uniform attitude toward media technologies. These mindsets, being ideal-typical constructs, are not bound to individuals: the same person can display features of the analogue and the datafied mindset in relation to different parts of the datafied world. One mindset does not replace the other but rather adds another layer to the social action of the individuals. The mindsets are multi-dimensional and molded by contrasting understandings, indicating that the tenacious structures of the analogue world linger on in the datafied social space.

    Conducting Cross-Cultural Online Audience Research with two Generations: Methodological Experiences and Reflections from the Pandemic Context2023Ingår i: AoIR Selected Papers of Internet Research 2022, The Association of Internet Researchers , 2023Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    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.

    Conducting Online Focus Group Interviews With Two Generations: Methodological Experiences and Reflections From the Pandemic Context2023Ingår i: International Journal of Qualitative Methods, E-ISSN 1609-4069, Vol. 22Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, many research projects were forced to adapt their design and conduct interviews online. This paper discusses the benefits and challenges of using online focus groups with participants representing different generations and cultural and social backgrounds. Based on the researchers’ experiences and field notes from a three-country comparative project, aiming at analysing the extent to which previous experience of state surveillance impacted attitudes to commercial monitoring and tracking of online behaviour among two generational cohorts, the paper identifies seven aspects where the move from offline to online interviewing interfered with the original research design. The paper suggests that most of these interferences resulted in a need to adjust the methodology to better fit the online setting. We reflect critically upon the issues of technological preconditions and digital skills, recruitment, group size, degrees of previous acquaintance, the role of the interviewer, participants’ household status and media environment, and ethical considerations concerning privacy and data management. Based on these methodological insights, we conclude that future online focus group research would benefit from using smaller groups and adjusted moderation, flexibility in interviewing tools and channels, and new, online-specific ethical considerations when planning, executing, and analysing interviews. The paper advocates the complementarity between in-person and online focus groups as two modalities of data collection and argues for the normalization of hybrid methods. © The Author(s) 2023.

    Contemporary Challenges in Mediatisation Research2023Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book focuses on key challenges related to conducting research on mediatisation, presenting the most current theoretical, empirical, and methodological challenges and problems, addressing ignored and less frequently discussed topics, critical and controversial themes, and defining niches and directions of development in mediatisation.

    With a focus on the under-representation of certain topics and aspects, as well as methodological, technological, and ethical dilemmas, the chapters consider the main critical objections formulated against mediatisation studies and exchange critical positions. Moving beyond areas of common focus – culture, sport, and religion – to emerging areas of study such as fashion, the military, business, and the environment, the book then offers a critical assessment of the transformation of fields and the relevance of new and dynamic (meta)processes including datafication, counter-mediatisation, and platformisation.

    Charting new paths of development in mediatisation, this book will be of interest to scholars and students of mediatisation, media studies, media literacy, communication studies, and research methods.

    Introduction: Approaching the Challenges of Mediatisation2023Ingår i: Contemporary Challenges in Mediatisation Research / [ed] Katarzyna Kopecka-Piech; Göran Bolin, London: Routledge, 2023, 1, s. 1-10Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter offers a brief characterisation of mediatisation research, and critically discusses mediatisation as a “sensitising concept”, as a research programme, a research field, an approach, or a paradigm. It provides a historical overview of how the concept and the field has developed over the past few decades until now, and what has shaped it in this way. The chapter aims to account for the various approaches (the institutional perspective on mediatisation, the technological, and the cultural or social constructionist); and discusses ontological and epistemological differences. It describes the main challenges and objections/criticisms to mediatisation studies defined so far, types of transformations that have been analysed, and which are neglected and marginalised. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.

    Limitations and New Directions for the Development of Mediatisation as a Research Field2023Ingår i: Contemporary Challenges in Mediatisation Research / [ed] Katarzyna Kopecka-Piech; Göran Bolin, London: Routledge, 2023, 1, s. 195-200Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this book has been to discuss the key challenges related to mediatisation research, and to highlight and critically examine the methodological, technological, and ethical problems that the field is facing. The ambition has been to identify limitations, gaps, and deficiencies, but also to discuss problematic aspects of particular approaches, to highlight contradictions and paradoxes, and to take note of under-represented areas. This chapter summarises the ways in which the book’s contributors have addressed these topics. The body of work in mediatisation studies is rich enough to build on, and as some authors emphasise, what is needed is an awareness and good knowledge of that body of work, which some studies lack. Interdisciplinarity appears nowadays as a natural paradigm of conducting research on mediatisation. Researchers of mediatisation are in this respect burdened with a kind of responsibility, but they can also be said to be well equipped to contribute with improvements to existing research ethically.

    Managing Meaning in Ukraine: Information, Communication, and Narration since the Euromaidan Revolution2023Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An in-depth look at Ukraine's attempts to shape how it is perceived by the rest of the world.

    During times of crisis, competing narratives are often advanced to define what is happening, and the stakes of information management by nations are high. In this timely book, Göran Bolin and Per Ståhlberg examine the fraught intersection of state politics, corporate business, and civil activism to understand the dynamics and importance of meaning management in Ukraine. Drawing on fieldwork inside the country, the authors discuss the forms, agents, and platforms within the complex political and communicative situation and how each articulated and acted upon perceptions of the propaganda threat.

    Bolin and Ståhlberg focus their analysis on the period between 2013 and 2022, when political tensions, commercial dynamics, and new communication technologies bred novel forms of information management. As they show, entities from governments and governmental administration to commercial actors, entrepreneurs, and activists formed new alliances in order to claim a stake in information policy. Bolin and Ståhlberg also explore how the various agents engaged in information management and strove to manage meaning in communication practice; the communicative tools they took advantage of; and the subsequent consequences for narrative constructions.

    Mediatisation, Digitisation and Datafication: The Role of the Social in Contemporary Data Capitalism2023Ingår i: Central European Journal of Communication, ISSN 1899-5101, Vol. 16, nr 1(33), s. 7-18Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the relations between mediatisation and datafication, and how the process of datafication has integrated several diverse value forms in complex interrelations. The first section outlines the rise of datafication in the wake of the technological development of digitisation in combination with new business models of the media and communications industries, leading to a tighter integration between these and other sectors of society. The second accounts for how this development paves way for certain specific value forms that result from this integrative process, and how the interrelation between value forms introduces a shift in the valuation processes of late modern data capitalism, where the social takes a prominent position. The final section discusses the relationship between datafication and mediatisation. The argument is that although datafication introduces a new phase in the mediatisation process, the former also extends beyond the latter.

    Nation branding vs. nation building revisited: Ukrainian information management in the face of the Russian invasion2023Ingår i: Place Branding and Public Diplomacy, ISSN 1751-8040, E-ISSN 1751-8059, Vol. 19, s. 218-222Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article re-evaluates some of the previous assumptions made related to the communication practices and information management in Ukraine since before the Euromaidan revolution in 2013. We highlight two points where previous knowledge about nation branding and nation building must be rethought in light of the latest developments Firstly, nation branding is no longer exclusively an activity that is directed to an audience of foreign investors and tourists, but also toward the international field of politics. Simultaneously, it is also clearly directed toward a domestic audience-the citizens of Ukraine. Secondly, this means that there may no longer be any sharp distinction between nation building and nation branding-at least not in times of an ongoing armed conflict.

    Social Media Surveillance and Authoritarianism: Final Report2023Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    What are the attitudes of online media users to the vast collection of personal data held by commercial platform companies? Do previous experiences of state surveillance have an impact on these attitudes? Do they differ for those brought up in the surveillance regime of Estonia during the Soviet Union era, or who experienced the surveillance apparatus in Portugal under authoritarian dictatorship? Do Swedish media users without authoritarian surveillance experiences differ in their attitudes to commercial surveillance? 

    These questions are discussed in this final report from the project Social Media Surveillance and Authoritarianism (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, 2020–2023), a three-country comparative study (Estonia, Portugal, Sweden). The project aimed to analyse the role of past experiences of state surveillance on attitudes to dataveillance, that is, the commercial surveillance stemming from online media that is at the heart of data capitalism. 

    The report accounts for the aims, objectives, theoretical and methodological points of departure and and presents empirical examples of the results.

    The return of propaganda: Historical legacies and contemporary conceptualisations2023Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Media Studies, E-ISSN 2003-184X, Vol. 5, nr 1, s. 1-16Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [sv]

    In this introductory article, we discuss the rise of the “classical” theories of propaganda, starting with an historical exposé of the concept, which traces its roots and trajectory through the field of academic analysis. Propaganda is then discussed in relation to other adjacent concepts such as soft power, public diplomacy, nation branding, fake news, and so on. In a third section, the concept of propaganda is discussed in relation to the present datafied world, marked by various forms of crises – of democracy and of the environment, for example. In the last section, the articles included in this themed issue are presented and related to the preceding historical and conceptual discussion.

    Disruption and transformation in media events theory: The case of the Euromaidan Revolution in Ukraine2022Ingår i: Nordic Journal of Media Studies, E-ISSN 2003-184X, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 99-117Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Media events, Dayan and Katz argue, compose a narrative genre that follows specific structural principles and narrative tropes and that works toward societal integration. However, a specific subset of media events is labelled transformative, and these work towards societal change. In this article, we point to an unresolved tension between transformative events and what has subsequently been introduced as disruptive events. Our discussion builds on research on the developments in post-Soviet Ukraine, and we analyse, firstly, the transformative and disruptive relations related to the so-called Euromaidan Revolution, and secondly, how these events can be placed in a wider narrative of three Ukrainian revolutions. Our analysis concludes that narrative analysis can help explain the ways in which these events are understood by broader international audiences.

    The uberisation of higher education: Datafied dynamics in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic2022Ingår i: The Covid-19 Pandemic as a Challenge for Media and Communication Studies, London: Routledge, 2022, s. 23-34Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    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 World2022Ingår i: New Perspectives in Critical Data Studies: The Ambivalences of Data Power / [ed] Hepp, Andreas; Jarke, Juliane; Kramp, Leif, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2022, s. 167-186Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Who is afraid of dataveillance?: Attitudes toward online surveillance in a cross-cultural and generational perspective2022Ingår i: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article compares surveillance-related experiences and attitudes of two generations of media users in countries with different historical surveillance regimes (Estonia, Portugal, and Sweden) and analyzes the predictors of the attitudes toward contemporary surveillance. A large-scale online survey (N = 3221) reveals that attitudes toward online state and corporate surveillance are interrelated; the two attitudinal components are, however, generation-specific, having different predictors. Tolerance toward state surveillance is more characteristic of the older group, being predicted by trustful and obedient attitudes toward state authorities and institutions. Tolerance toward corporate dataveillance is more characteristic of the younger group, being predicted by active and self-confident media use. While the socio-historical context molds the intergenerational gaps in surveillance-related experiences and attitudes, individual-level experiences of state surveillance do not predict tolerance toward either type of contemporary surveillance, suggesting that global techno-cultural developments are probably more powerful factors than past experiences in forming generation-specific attitudes.

    The PowerPoint Nation: Branding an Imagined Commodity2021Ingår i: European Review, ISSN 1062-7987, E-ISSN 1474-0575, Vol. 29, nr 4, s. 445-456Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the formation of the modern nation state and the social imaginary of nationalism in the nineteenth century, the media and representational practices have, among most scholars, been ascribed a prominent position. The question is, however, how have changes in media technologies, from mass media to digital and interactive personal media, impacted on the national imaginaries over the past few decades? This article discusses what happens with the social imaginaries when national(ist) symbols are reproduced through the medium of PowerPoint, as one of the main tools for constructing images of the nation in nation-branding campaigns, i.e. promotional campaigns initiated by governments in conjunction with corporate actors with the aim of producing an attractive image of a country for foreign investors and tourists. It is concluded that the representational technology of PowerPoint produces a nation as an imagined commodity rather than an imagined community.

    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.

    Audience-metric continuity? Approaching the meaning of measurement in the digital everyday2020Ingår i: Media Culture and Society, ISSN 0163-4437, E-ISSN 1460-3675, Vol. 42, nr 7-8, s. 1193-1209Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues for an expansion of existing studies on the meaning of metrics in digital environments by evaluating a methodology tested in a pilot study to analyse audience responses to metrics of social media profiles. The pilot study used the software tool Facebook Demetricator by artist Ben Grosser in combination with follow-up interviews. In line with Grosser’s intentions, the software indeed provoked reflection among the users. In this article, we reflect on three kinds of disorientations that users expressed, linked to temporality, sociality and value. Relating these to the history of audience measurement in mass media, we argue that there is merit in using this methodology for further analysis of continuities in audience responses to metrics, in order to better understand the ways in which metrics work to create the ‘audience commodity’.

    Generational temporalities and rhythm-analysis2019Ingår i: Comunicazioni Sociali, ISSN 0392-8667, Vol. 2019, nr 2, s. 202-214Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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 change2019Ingår i: Empiria. Revista de metodología de ciencias sociales, ISSN 2174-0682, nr 42, s. 21-36Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    The mediatized nation: Identity, agency and audience in nation branding campaigns2019Ingår i: InMediaciones de la Comunicación, ISSN 1510-5091, nr 2, s. 187-207Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Nation branding is a dynamic and rapidly developing practice and a subprocess under the wider process of mediatization for promoting or readjusting images of a nation-state for tourists or investors. Especially young nation states have a felt need to build new images of themselves in the eyes of the surrounding world, but since these nation states also have a short history of sovereignty, they simultaneously need to build the social solidarity and community inwards, to form the basis needed for the building of a nation. This article takes its departure in this tension and addresses three themes – agency, audience and identity – that we consider needs further theorizing due to the fact that the practice is yet trying to find its form. These themes are discussed in relation to the branding efforts in the new Eastern European state of Ukraine over the past decade. It is concluded that the nation branding campaigns are today orchestrated also by domestic PR agencies (to the contrary of the previous dominance of British agencies), that the domestic audience is taken into consideration in other ways than in previous branding campaigns, and that the questions of identity construction is more complex than what is previously accounted for. The Ukrainian case thus illustrates the mediatization of national symbols in contemporary society.

    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.

    Media, communication and the struggle for social progress2018Ingår i: Global Media and Communication, ISSN 1742-7665, E-ISSN 1742-7673, Vol. 14, nr 2, s. 173-191Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    Media Use and the Extended Commodification of the Lifeworld2018Ingår i: Technologies of Labour and the Politics of Contradiction / [ed] Bilić, Paško; Primorac, Jaka; Valtýsson, Bjarki, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, s. 235-252Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    In the chapter Bolin argues that in the world of digital, interactive media, media users become involved in two kinds of valorisation processes: one in which they produce social, aesthetic and cultural value within the framework of a cultural economy – which then becomes appropriated by the media industries and transformed into economic value. Furthermore, the nature of the business models of social networking media makes the labour activities at their bottom easily misrecognized by the media users. The result of this process is an increased commodification of social realms that have previously been outside of the economic markets.

    Abstract [en]

    Following the spread of digital media, the interdisciplinary field of surveillance studies has gained prominence, engaging scholars from the humanities and the social sciences alike. This introductory article aims to map out the main terrain of surveillance through, by and in the media. First, we discuss the phenomenon of, and the scholarly work on, surveillance through and by media, taking into consideration both state and corporate surveillance and how these activities have grown with the new digital and personal media of today. We then discuss surveillance as the phenomenon is represented in the media and how representations relate to surveillance practices. We conclude by presenting the articles of this special issue.

    The soft power of commercialised nationalist symbols: Using media analysis to understand nation branding campaigns2018Ingår i: European Journal of Cultural Studies, ISSN 1367-5494, E-ISSN 1460-3551, Vol. 21, nr 5, s. 527-542Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the late 1990s, nation branding has attracted a lot of attention from academics, professional consultants and government actors. The ideas and practices of nation branding are frequently presented by branding advocates as necessary and even inevitable in the light of changing dynamics of political power and influence in a globalised and media-saturated world. In this context, some have argued that nation branding is a way to reduce international conflict and supplant ethno-nationalism with a new form of market-based, national image management. However, a growing body of critical studies has documented that branding campaigns tend to produce ahistorical and exclusionary representations of the nation and advance a form of ‘commercial nationalism’ that is problematic. Importantly, the critical scholarship on nation branding has relied primarily on sociological and anthropological theories of nationhood, identities and markets. By contrast, the role of the media – as institutions, systems and societal storytellers – has been undertheorised in relation to nation branding. The majority of the existing literature tends to treat the media as ‘neutral’ vehicles for the delivery of branding messages to various audiences. This is the guest editors’ introduction to the Special Issue ‘Theorizing Media in Nation Branding’, which seeks to problematise this overly simplistic view of ‘the media’ and aims to articulate the various ways in which specific media are an integral part of nation branding. It adopts an interdisciplinary approach and problematises both the enabling and the inhibiting potentialities of different types of media as they perpetuate nation branding ideas, images, ideologies, discourses and practices.

    Dynamics of Mediatization: Institutional Change and Everyday Transformations in a Digital Age2017Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    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.

    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.

    From Nation Branding to Information Warfare: The Management of Information in the Ukraine–Russia Conflict2016Ingår i: Media and the Ukraine Crises: Hybrid media practice and narratives of conflict / [ed] Mervi Pantti, New York: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2016, s. 3-18Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholarly attention regarding the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has mainly concentrated on so-called Russian propaganda, directed both towards Russian-speaking populations and the international public, but less attention has been paid to the management of information from Ukraine. In this chapter is proposed that the conflict between Ukraine and Russia has engaged an entirely new set of actors engaged in the management of information, most notably from PR and nation branding activities, as well as journalists, oligarchs and various individuals with an interest in Ukraine’s international image. These new actors bring with them competences, ideologies and practices from their field of origin which impact on the practice and expressive character of information warfare. In this chapter we analyse three domains of communication used by Ukraine to address external audiences; the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre (UCMC), the English language news channel Ukraine Today and the fact checking website StopFake. With a focus on both individuals as well as the institutions they represent, this chapter explores the way in which actors in Ukraine have attempted to shape the content of the messages communicated.

    Passion and Nostalgia in Generational Media Experiences2016Ingår i: European Journal of Cultural Studies, ISSN 1367-5494, E-ISSN 1460-3551, Vol. 19, nr 3, s. 250-264Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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.

    The Rhythm of Ages: Analysing Mediatization through the Lens of Generations Across Cultures2016Ingår i: International Journal of Communication, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 10, s. 5252-5269Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    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 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.

    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.
