Abstract [en]

This study explores how the center ’Visualisering C’ in Norrköping municipality ties into an actor-network that includes Linköping University, Norrköping municipality and Region Östergötland. The purpose was to discern how the master signifier was ‘development’ was constructed and connected within the discursive field with differencing actors with the Visualisering C as a focal point for the actors. The method I used was discourse theory that explores the discursive field with the help of discursive concepts such as nodal point, master signifiers, floating signifiers among others. The study used public documents found on websites and archives. The results showed that the Visualisering C acted as pre-packaged solution for the issues that the other actors were faced with. Meanwhile, it came to be through the joining of discursive focuses of the individual actors.
