    Bild som bild i en föränderlig mediebransch?: En kvantitativinnehållsanalys om spetskompetens och multikompetens2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problemformulering och syfte: Mediebranschen i dag är under förändring bland annat till följd av att tidningar blir allt mer koncernstyrda och ekonomifokuserade. Därmed förändras anställningsformerna på många tidningar från att vara inriktade på spetskompetens till att inriktas mot multikompetens, detta för att spara in pengar på resurser.

    Denna studie har till syfte att undersöka om det ökande multikompetenskravet har någon påverkan på bildjournalistiken i svenska lokaltidningar.

    Metod och material: Undersökningen är gjord genom en kvantitativ innehållsanalys av fyra svenska lokaltidningar, Barometern, Ystads Allehanda, Nya Wermlands Tidningen och Norran, som valdes genom ett strategiskt urval. Undersökning gjordes genom att mata och räkna bilder i tidningarnas pappersupplaga under fem dagar.

    Huvudresultat: Trots förändringarna inom journalistbranschen påverkas inte tidningarnas bilsättning eller bildmäng negativt ur ett kvantitativt perspektiv när spetskompetensen byts ut mot multikompetens på redaktionerna. Oavsätt anställningsform på redaktionerna står bildkvantiteten i fokus. De bilder som publiceras i tidningarna visar på hur multijournalisterna i en större utsträckning, än fotograferna, tvingas arbeta mer tidseffektivt för att kunna uppnå de krav som kvarstår trots att medarbetaren gör samma jobb som tidigare utförts av två stycken.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ett projekt som inleddes som en studie i nation branding i Ukraina kom efter Majdanrevolten 2013-14 att övergå i en undersökning av hur ukrainska myndigheter och medier hanterar information i konflikten mellan Ukraina och Ryssland. Ryssland antas ha en mäktig propagandaapparat, men hur agerar Ukraina i informationskriget mot Ryssland?

    Vilka stora tänder du har!: En kvantitativ analys av fyra svenska tidningars rapportering om vargar under 2011 och 2012.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This BA Thesis in Journalism is a quantitative analysis of the coverage of wolves in Swedish printed media. Namely four daily newspapers, two national and two local. The two national newspapers are Aftonbladet which is a leading tabloid newspaper with national coverage and Svenska Dagbladet which is one of the two major newspapers with national coverage, as well as coverage of the greater Stockholm region. The two local newspapers are Falu Kuriren, which is located in Falun and mainly cover the province of Dalarna and Nya Wermlands-tidningen which is located in Karlstad and mainly cover the province of Värmland. These are provinces which have a large wolf population.As the work progressed we found that the newspapers have handled the coverage of the wolf in, what we believe, a good way. The use of powerful and strong words, such as “mayhem” etcetera, was low in most cases. Aftonbladet was the newspaper that had the highest percentage, in the amount of these words in relation to the amount of articles, with over 100 %.We also found that the pictures the newspapers used were mostly pictures of the people cited in the article and in when they used pictures of wolves they mainly used pictures which are to be considered as neutral.

    Rhizocial media: Rhizomet och filterbubblor i sociala medier2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media has become an inseparable part of society and its design has far reaching consequences beyond the producer's intent. In the design of these two-way communicative media, filters are central part which has consequences for the contexts of the users moving through them. What can a Deleuzian method make visible by crashing it with filter bubbles and social media? What happens to the individuals whose truths are shaped by social media, when these media are on track to take over as the primary information channel? Why are social media designed in a way that tend to exclude variation in perspective. The examination aims at investigating thoughts on how the design creates filter bubbles in favor of social, ideological and principal positions based on how the user has built up her social media accounts. How does the filter bubble relate to the rhizome, what brings them together and what sets them apart? Can design utilize the heterogeneous links of the rhizome while at the same time limiting it? By reviewing what social media produces, I want to investigate its design, and thereby see new ways to develop the platforms of the future.

    Imperfektion som estetiskt val: En utredning om vad som bidragit till den ökande produktionen av animerade filmer skapade med analoga och digitala 3D-animationstekniker i symbios2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This degree project examines the aspects that motivated 3D animated movie creators to combine analog and digital 3D animation techniques in a symbiosis. This can be done using new technology through 3D scanning and 3D printing. Where analog artifacts have the ability to be scanned into a computer to be animated digitally, while digitally created artifacts possess the ability to be 3D printed, and animated in an analogue environment.  By interviewing Meindbender Animation Studio, a digital 3D animation studio, and Dockhus Animation, which is primarily an analog stop-motion animation studio, we would like to test the validity of our hypothesis that this is primarily about getting an aesthetic visual imperfection. During these interviews, their experiences and views are explored and discussed in working with a symbiosis of analogue and digital 3D animation techniques, and their own reasons as to why they themselves chose to work with such a symbiosis. From this we want to create a greater understanding of the possibilities of symbiosis and give light to the so far unexplored phenomena which so far has become very relevant in the modern production of animated images.   The results were well matched with our hypothesis, that visual and animated imperfections play a major role in the decision of working with a symbiosis of analog and digital 3D animation. However, the potential of 3D animation was not the most crucial factor in choosing a symbiosis. This can provide scope for further research.

    Semantic Analysis of (Reflectional) Visual Symmetry: A Human-Centred Computational Model for Declarative Explainability2018In: Advances in Cognitive Systems, ISSN 2324-8416, Vol. 6, p. 65-83Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We present a computational model for the semantic interpretation of symmetry in naturalistic scenes. Key features include a human-centred representation, and a declarative, explainable interpretation model supporting deep semantic question-answering founded on an integration of methods in knowledge representation and deep learning based computer vision. In the backdrop of the visual arts, we showcase the framework's capability to generate human-centred, queryable, relational structures, also evaluating the framework with an empirical study on the human perception of visual symmetry. Our framework is driven by the application and integration of methods for foundational vision, knowledge representation, and reasoning to the arts, while incorporating evidence from the psychological and social sciences.

    Propaganda under världskriget: En kvalitativ analys av brittiska och tyska propagandaaffischer2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problemformulering och syfte: Tidigare forskning har kommit fram till att visuella medium, såsom affischer spelade en viktig roll i propagandan under kriget och de har analyserats på en grundläggande denotativ nivå. Jag har i denna uppsats använt mig av tidigare forskning för att gå djupare in i affischer från Storbritannien och Tyskland, som producerades under kriget, för att se vad de förmedlar, hur de kan tolkas av mottagarna, om det finns likheter eller skillnader mellan nationerna och vilka sorters stereotyper som fanns inom nationernas propaganda.

    Metod och material: Undersökningen är gjord utifrån ett stratifierat urval och sedan en semiotisk bildanalys av totalt tolv affischer; Dessa är indelade till ena hälften från Storbritannien och andra hälften Tyskland och inom båda huvudkategorierna finns tre kategorier med två affischer i vardera, bilder av de egna styrkorna, av fienden och av händelser.

    Huvudresultat: Varje affisch förmedlar både olika, ex. stereotyper, och lika saker, användandet av grymhetspropaganda, men helheten av affischerna inom de olika kategorierna överensstämmer med den tidigare forskningen, som beskrivit hur propagandan och affischerna användes i nationerna. Hur affischen kunde tolkas har gett resultat utifrån de teoretiska utgångspunkterna, vilket visar på att budskapet kunde tolkas både som sändaren ville att mottagaren skulle tolka det, men även att det kunde tolkas annorlunda. Där tidigare forskning endast har fokuserat på hur sändaren ville att mottagaren skulle tolka budskapet presenterar mina resultat ett annat sätt för mottagaren att tolka budskapet. Likheter i propagandan finns bland annat i att båda nationer använde grymhetspropaganda. Skillnader återfinns genom att stereotypen för Storbritannien fokuserade på fienden, medan Tysklands stereotyper återfanns i bilden av de egna styrkorna.

    "Women's best beautiful" will never be good enough: En retorisk och semiotisk analys av fyra reklamfilmer för skönhetsprodukter.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Title: Women's best beautiful will never be good enough: a rethoric and semiotic analysis of four advertisements for beauty products.

    Because of the medias central role in peoples lives in the modern society we today live in, they have become a reference in peoples processes of making sence of their subsistences and environments. Commercial companies also want to present an as good image as possible of them towards the recipients through their marketing. Both parts can lead to a distorted picture of the real och everyday and norms and ideals easily form, for example about the correct way a woman should act and be, as the media affect which references should be made available for society.

    The purpose of this thesis is to examine how four advertisements for beauty products produce ideals and norms of beauty as well as construct and reconstruct femininity through the ways women are represented. The study will also contain the question about how rethoric and semiotic tools are used to strengthen the messages and sell the products. The following questions will be answered within this study:

    • How is femininity being represented in the advertisements?
    • How can the advertisements contribute to the creation of ideals and norms of beauty? 
    • How do the companies use rethoric and semiotic tools in the four advertisements to sell their products and/or strengthen their brands?

    The study will be executed with a qualitative rethoric and semiotic analysis and the theories applied to it are Mediatization theory, Envisionment theory as well as a theory about gender and femininity.   

    The foremost results of this study has been that women are represented as constantly striving towards a better beauty to be able to also feel better about themselves, gain better self-esteem and to have more fulfilled and successful lives. The women in the advertisments were shown to usually be displeased with their appearances and unsure about themselves because of it before their use of the product. A maintained need for beauty and beautyproducts was also identified to be conveyed from the companies through the advertisements, towards the recipients. This could be understood as a way for them to strengthen the messages and create a constant need among women for their beautyproducts. These tendencies has also been identified to be factors which create beautyideals and norms for women to follow to be normalised and considered as feminine.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents findings from a study investigating young English language learners (YELLs) in Sweden in 4th grade (N=76, aged 10–11). Data were collected with the help of a questionnaire and a one-week language diary. The main purpose was to examine the learners’ L2 English language-related activities outside of school in general, and their use of computers and engagement in playing digital games in particular. A comparison is made between language-related activities in English, Swedish, and other languages. Another purpose was to see whether there is a relationship between playing digital games and (a) gender, (b) L1, (c) motivation for learning English, (d) self-assessed English ability, and (e) self-reported strategies for speaking English. In order to do so, the sample was divided into three digitalgame groups, (1) non-gamers, (2) moderate, and (3) frequent gamers (>4 hours/week), based on diary data (using self-reported times for playing digital games in English). Results showedthat YELLs are extensively involved in extramural English (EE) activities (M=7.2 hrs/w).There are statistically significant gender differences, boys (11.5 hrs/w) and girls (5.1 hrs/w; p < .01), the reason being boys’ greater time investment in digital gaming and watching films.The girls, on the other hand, spent significantly more time on pastime language-relatedactivities in Swedish (11.5 hrs/w) than the boys (8.0 hrs/w; p < .05), the reason being girls’greater time investment in facebooking. Investigation of the digital game groups revealed that group (1) was predominantly female, (2) a mix, and (3) predominantly male. YELLs with an L1 other than Swedish were overrepresented in group (3). Motivation and self-assessed English ability were high across all groups. Finally, regarding the self-reported strategies, code-switching to one’s L1 was more commonly reported by non- and moderate gamers than frequent gamers.

    "Med kvinnlig frenesi": Om mottagandet av fyra kvinnliga författare under ett sekel2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här uppsatsen visar hur fyra kvinnliga författare debutromaner, från 1891-2000, har blivit mottagna. Undersökningen diskuterar hur kritiker förhåller sig till verken och författarnas kön. Undersökningen vill visa på hur kritikernas förhållningsätt till kvinnliga författare har förändrats under ett sekel. Vidare studeras vilka tendenser som påvisar att författarna har blivit recenserade med utgångspunkt i traditionella könsmönster.

     

    Vår teoretiska utgångspunkt är genus och uppsatsens metodologiska tillvägagångssätt utgörs av Ruth Wodaks definition av kritisk diskuranalys (CDA).  Resultatet visar att normen kring kvinnans ställning i samhället präglar hur litteraturkritiken bemöter kvinnliga författare. Den förändring som har skett under hundra år avspeglas även i mottagandet av romanerna.

     

    Summeringen är kritiken har tidigare haft ett tydligt fokus på författarens kön och en förmyndarartad hållning. I recensionerna av de senare verken från sent 50-tal och framåt är istället innehållet och språket i fokus och författarens kön har en underordnad betydelse.

    Desires at Play: On Closeness and Epistemological Uncertainty2012In: Games and Culture: A Journal of Interactive Media, ISSN 1555-4120, E-ISSN 1555-4139, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 164-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     This article discusses knowledge production in game studies by exploring notions of emotion, closeness and (queer) desire in new media ethnography. It uses field notes and experiences from an ethnographic study of the online game World of Warcraft. As opposed to the kind of fieldwork where being, living, and staying in the field is the only option, new media ethnography brings with it the possibility of moving through different locations and bodies to the point where the borders between them may start to blur. The text positions itself within this very uncertainty to investigate its consequences for ways of knowing online game cultures.

    Drawing on the body of ethnographic work interrogating erotic subjectivity and desire in the field, the discussion makes use of personal experiences – in particular an in-game as well as out-of-the game love affair - as potentially important sources of knowledge. Was it her, regardless of the game? Was it her through the game? Or was it the game ‘‘itself ’’? The article provides the story of a particular way of being introduced to and of falling for a game, a woman, and the ways in which these two were intensely connected. Set against the backdrop of ‘‘the affective turn’’ in cultural and feminist theory, and in making visible how desire may circulate through game spaces, the article argues for an articulation of desire as intimately related to technology; of desiring technology and of technological, or perhaps technologized desires.

    Glitch, genus, tillfälligt avbrott: Femininitet som trasighetens teknologi2016In: Lambda Nordica: Tidskrift om homosexualitet, ISSN 1100-2573, no 1-2, p. 23-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Technologies always implicate their own failures, breakdowns, and glitches. The purpose of this article is to develop an understanding of gender in general – and femininity in particular – as something fundamentally technological, and, as such, broken. Drawing on the technological undercurrent in current posthumanist feminist theory, arguing for a re-introduction of technologies in the midst of feminist posthumanist critique, the author puts into play a vocabulary of malfunctioning, broken, vulnerable technologies of gender. In particular, the term “glitch” is put to use to account for machinic failures in gender within the digital domain. By using glitch as a way of theorizing gender, the article is a dual contribution to digital media studies and feminist theory in a technological vein. Glitch is the spinning wheel on the computer screen, the delay between a command given and its execution. Etymologically, glitch (possibly) derives from the Yiddish word glitsh, meaning a “slippery place” or “a slip.” Glitch signals the slipperiness of something or someone off balance and a loss of control. It usually refers to a sudden unexpected event, a surge of current or an illegitimate signal that breaks the flow of energy, information, and affect. Glitch is, fundamentally, a struggle with binary code. Gender is a similar struggle to cope with binaries, with a loss of binaries, and about what happens when the vulnerability of the system is revealed. On this side of glitch, the tendency is toward hesitation and anticipation, irritation and annoyance, as well as pain and anxiety in the face of technologies and bodies that skip, crash, or get stuck. The default mode of gender is technological failure, and cis-gender normativity – what the author calls gender “high fidelity” – an unobtainable ideal of impossible perfection. If to glitch is to slip, to stutter, to stumble, gender high fidelity is to slip by unnoticed. In contrast to the notion of cis-gender normativity as a desire to cover or remove “noise,” to clear the channel, glitch is that which infiltrate, make dirty, and ultimately put pressure on the norms and ideals that structure gender as pure, clear, cold, binary code. In this sense, glitch is also about a perceived beauty in crashing and skipping, holding an intriguing critical, aesthetic, activist potential. In the hands of glitch artists, circuit breakers, and gamers, but also queers, and trans-performers, glitch becomes a celebration of the beauty of malfunction and gender-technological fragility.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper develops an understanding of gender as something fundamentally technological, and as such broken. Drawing on the technological undercurrent in current posthumanist feminist theory, it puts into play a vocabulary of malfunctioning, broken, vulnerable technologies, and in particular uses the term ‘glitch’ to account for machinic failures in gender within the digital domain. As an intriguing example of the technologies of (trans)gender, the core example consists of the social media presence and public transition of Isabella Bunny Bennett — a musical performer and a member of the U.S.-based band Steam Powered Giraffe. Drawing on how glitch is understood as an accidental error and a critical potential in aesthetic practices, the article is a contribution to what recently has been coined ‘glitch feminism.’

    Technologies of Feeling: Affect between the Analog and the Digital2015In: Networked Affect / [ed] Ken Hillis, Susanna Paasonen, and Michael Petit, Cambridge, Massachusetts: The MIT Press , 2015, p. 135-150Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the midst of the affective networks of contemporary digital cultures, something seemingly of the opposite order is taking shape. It is a culture that contrasts speed with slowness, displaces the new with the old and the used, and replaces supposedly immaterial streams of data with highly material, tactile technologies, materials and fabrics. This chapter turns to steampunk cultures as compelling examples of a contemporary affective investment in the analog, coupled with intense digital connectivity. Drawing on affect theory in a neo-materialist vein, the author formulates a critique of Brian Massumi’s notion of the superiority of the analog and suggests that steampunk, rather than being understood as analog nostalgia, is more aptly understood in terms of the transdigital. The term transdigital accounts for analog passions that are shaped through the digital in ways that concretely activate, but also move across the borders of, or beyond the digital. Steampunk, rather than merely being a return to a bygone era, is a re-consideration, or transing, of the (digital) present. Within this chapter, steampunk is used as an especially intriguing example of a broader tendency toward transdigital modes of using and sensing media in contemporary media landscapes.

    Ångpunkens politik2012In: Senmoderna reflexioner: Festskrift till Johan Fornäs / [ed] Erling Bjurström, Martin Fredriksson, Ulf OIsson och Ann Werner, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press, 2012, p. 91-99Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Steampunk – eller vad man på svenska ibland kallar för ångpunk – kan sägas vara en estetisk teknologisk rörelse som inbegriper science fiction, konst, ingenjörskonst och en livfull subkultur. Den kännetecknas av retrofuturistiska drömmar om vad som kunde ha hänt om 1800-talets ångdrivna, mekaniska teknologier hade fått ett annat spelrum. Dess retrofuturism är en anakronism i form av medvetna kronologiska misstag, en inkonsekvent tidslighet som felplacerar personer, händelser, objekt (i det här fallet främst teknologier). Det kan sägas handla om ett fantasins omskapande av det förgångna med hjälp av nutidens teknologiska sensibilitet och kunskap. 

    Den här texten följer några centrala teman inom ångpunken i skärningspunkten mellan teknologi, politik och estetik och organiseras i tre delar. Den första delen fokuserar på det första ledet i begreppet ångpunk, alltså ånga, och söker skissera på vilka sätt rörelsen inspireras och drivs av kraften hos maskiner från en svunnen tid. Den andra delen syftar till att ringa in vad som kan sägas vara ångpunkens punketos i termer av samhällskritik, tekniksyn och motståndsstrategier. Den tredje delen kretsar slutligen kring vad som skulle kunna benämnas ångpunkens kroppsanakronismer. Diskussionen koncentreras främst till de betydelseförskjutningar som uppstår då korsetter och urverksmekanik möter en viktoriansk genuslogik för 2000-talet.

    Shameless hags and tolerance whores: feminist resistance and the affective circuits of online hate2018In: Feminist Media Studies, ISSN 1468-0777, E-ISSN 1471-5902, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 643-656Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores shamelessness as a feminist tactic of resistance to online misogyny, hate and shaming within a Nordic context. In our Swedish examples, this involves affective reclaiming of the term “hagga” (hag), which has come to embody shameless femininity and feminist solidarity, as well as the Facebook event “Skamlös utsläckning” (shameless extinction), which extends the solidarity or the hag to a collective of non-men. Our Finnish examples revolve around appropriating derisive terms used of women defending multiculturalism and countering the current rise of nationalist anti-immigration policy and activism across Web platforms, such as “kukkahattutäti” (aunt with a flower hat) and “suvakkihuora” (“overtly tolerant whore”). Drawing on Facebook posts, blogs and discussion forums, the article conceptualizes the affective dynamics and intersectional nature of online hate against women and other others. More specifically, we examine the dynamics of shaming and the possibilities of shamelessness as a feminist tactic of resistance. Since online humor often targets women, racial others and queers, the models of resistance that this article uncovers add a new stitch to its memetic logics. We propose that a networked politics of reclaiming is taking shape, one using collective imagination and wit to refuel feminist communities.

    Gender and Sexuality in Online Game Cultures: Passionate Play2012 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How do gender and sexuality come to matter in online game cultures? Why is it important to explore "straight" versus "queer" contexts of play? And what does it mean to play together with others over time, as co-players and researchers?

    Gender and Sexuality in Online Game Cultures is a book about female players and their passionate encounters with the online game World of Warcraft and its player cultures. It takes seriously women’s passions in games, and as such draws attention to questions of pleasure in and desire for technology.

    The authors use a unique approach of what they term a "twin ethnography" that develops two parallel stories. Sveningsson studies "straight" game culture, and makes explicit that which is of the norm by exploring the experiences of female gamers in a male-dominated gaming context. Sundén investigates "queer" game culture through the queer potentials of mainstream World of Warcraft culture, as well as through the case of a guild explicitly defined as LGBT.

    Academic research on game culture is flourishing, yet feminist accounts of gender and sexuality in games are still in the making. Drawing on feminist notions of performance, performativity and positionality, as well as the recent turn to affect and phenomenology within cultural theory, the authors develop queer, feminist studies of online player cultures in ways that are situated and embodied.

    Assessing value creation in digital innovation ecosystems: A Social Media Analytics approach2018In: Journal of strategic information systems, ISSN 0963-8687, E-ISSN 1873-1198Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the creation of value through the interactions of consumer and professional stakeholders in digital innovation ecosystems. We examine this by applying the methodological approach of Social Media Analytics (SMA) which is an interdisciplinary approach that seeks to combine, extend and adapt methods for analysing social media data. By utilising the SMA framework to track user-generated contents published on social media platforms, we assess how consumer and professional stakeholders associate value to Storytel, a new entrant in the Swedish publishing industry that is offering digital subscription service for streaming audiobooks. Drawing from a dataset of 2633 user-generated contents, our findings illustrate the value-creating practices in which stakeholders in Storytel's ecosystems associate value to Storytel's digital innovation. Our findings further highlight that the value-creating practices arising from the interactions of consumer and professional stakeholders in social media give rise to the hybridisation of value, where multiple values drawn from existing value categories become merged in the studied case. This study contributes to extant literature on management of innovation and information systems by (i) shedding light on how value is created by examining value-creating practices as a result of the interactions between stakeholders and (ii) examining the resulting merging of value categories within digital innovation ecosystems and thus exploring the hybridisation of value.

    Återberättande av narrativa element i spel: Var ligger fokus?2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utifrån tanken att alla använder sig av återberättande i sin vardag för att förmedla information undersöker det här arbetet om abstraktionsnivån på ett spel kan skifta fokuset skiftar mellan det förkonstruerade, vilket ger spelaren motivation och kontext till sina handlingar, och det emergenta narrativet, de händelser som sker under spelet, i ett återberättande av spelet. Via två versioner av ett spel, en abstrakt version utan återkopplingar till de förkonstruerade narrativet och en med återkopplingar, fick testare efter att de spelat en av versionerna göra ett kort återberättande utifrån frågor. Testningen visade att de som spelade den abstrakta versionen gjorde mer referenser till det emergenta narrativet och de som spelade versionen med återkopplingar till det förkonstruerade narrativet gjorde mer referenser till det. Vidare undersökningar skulle vara att se om spelvana spelar roll för vad som hamnar i fokus under återberättandet.

    LÅGUPPLÖST ILLUSTRERAD SAMTALSBETONING: Ett visuellt alternativ till ljud och typografi2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta examensarbete utgår ifrån psykologiska och medievetenskapliga teorier för att underbygga en studie bestående av ett praktiskt projektarbete och en vetenskaplig undersökning. Arbetet inspireras av berättarmöjligheterna och -begränsningarna i seriemediets kombination av text och stillbild. Verktyget i fokus är betoning i samtal, och frågeställningen gäller huruvida samma effekt som typografiskt betonad text kan förmedlas med ”stillbilds-läppsynkning” i lågupplösta bilder. Mediet som avses är inte seriemediet, utan en gren av tv-spelsmediet som bär på liknande begränsningar, nämligen ekonomiskt och tekniskt utmanade portabla spel. I utvärderingen av frågeställningen skapades en lågupplöst text- och bildsekvens avsedd att framhäva betoningar medelst karaktärers munformer, varpå en enkätundersökning användes för att avgöra hur väl betoningarna framgick. Resultatet av undersökningen tydde på att betoningsmetoden inte kan ersätta typografisk betoning, men att den till viss del kan förstärka uttrycksfullhet. Framtida utforskningar av principen uppmuntras, samt ytterligare kartläggningar och spridningar av kunskapen om bakomliggande principer för kroppsspråk överlag.

    Varför åkte du ner?: En kvalitativ framinganalys av Aftonbladets gestaltning av IS i Sverige2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose:The purpose of this study is to compare the news report from the swedish newspaper Aftonbladet about IS and IS-warriors with the knowledge and the experiences that the informant has. The study does also include a gender perspective, this to investigate how women and men frames differently.

    Method:The emperical material in this study comprises in gathering qualitative data existing of a semi constructed interview together with articles from Aftonbladet. I used the created framework as a method for analysing the articles.

    Conclusion:The result of the study show that Aftonbladet portrays IS and IS-warriors from Sweden in a negative way and also that the informants experiences and knowledge within the subject differ significantly from how the newspaper describes it. The study also shows that man and women are portrayed differently in Aftonbladet when the subject is IS in Sweden.

    "Tjatsex är inte våldtäkt": Våldtäktsrapportering i förändring2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att belysa hur tre gruppvåldtäkter i Stockholm skildrats i Aftonbladet. Fallen vi valt att studera närmare är Rissnefallet 2000, Stureplansvåldtäkten 2007 samt Tenstafallet 2013. De frågor som ligger till grund för vår undersökning är: Vilka får uttala sig? Hur framställs offer och gärningsmän? Finns det några skillnader och likheter i rapporteringen av fallen? Vi har också valt att undersöka hur journalisterna förhåller sig till de pressetiska reglerna. För att besvara våra frågeställningar har vi valt att använda oss av en textanalys med kvalitativ ansats. Med hjälp av Teun van Dijks kritiska diskursanalys gör vi först en övergripande analys av samtliga 57 artiklar i Aftonbladet. Därefter gör vi en djupgående granskning av fem artiklar från varje fall, som särskilt karaktäriserar rapporteringen. De teoretiska ramarna för uppsatsen är den postkoloniala teorin, den journalistiska etiken och journalistikens roll i samhället. Vi har även använt oss av teorin om våldtäktsmyter samt hur invandrarbegreppet används i medierna. I vår studie har vi sett att rapporteringen om de tre fallen innehåller flera likheter. Rapporteringen följer ett tydligt mönster där rättsprocessen spelar en stor roll. Vi upplever att medierna ibland har tagit ställning för offret, som ges stort utrymme i rapporteringen. Vi har upptäckt skillnader i Aftonbladets förhållningssätt till de pressetiska reglerna. Från att ha beskrivit de två första fallen mycket ingående, har journalisterna i Tenstafallet utelämnat detaljer som kan vara till skada för de inblandade.

    Den gode, den onde, den fulle: En narrativ analys av journalister på vita duken2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study highlights the stereotypical depictions of journalists in film using a narrative analysis of four major Hollywood productions, starting with All the President’s Men from 1976 through The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo from 2011. Its purpose is to highlight traits given to journalists in the movies and re-occuring themes in the portrayal of the media and the journalistic occupation. Differences and commonalities between the films are concluded in a discussion of ethics, personalities and the media’s self image. The paper can be seen as a contribution to the paradigm in which journalism in the movies is perceived at the moment. It offers a wide explanation to how the image of the journalist is conveyed to the public, an image that differs from how real life journalists go about in daily work life. This is essential, since most people never get to experience journalistic work in reality – but solely from popular culture – which distorts the perception of the media as the fourth estate.

    Deliberation or Updating?: The Case of Southern Stockholm Activists Online2012In: ECEG 2012 Proceedings of the 12th European Conference on eGovernment: ESADE Ramon Llull University Barcelona, Spain 14-15 June 2012. Volume Two / [ed] Gascó, Mila, Academic Publishing International, 2012, p. 691-697Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Based on a (n) ethnographic inspired study of middle class activists in southern Stockholm, the aim is to understand contemporary political action and to discuss changing practices of participation in digital and late modernity. More specifically this paper addresses the Internet and its promise of deliberation. However instead of echoing techno-deterministic and optimist accounts of the Internet and online social networking affording a digital public sphere where deliberation can flourish, this paper argues that it is more accurate to understand the practices among the activists in southern Stockholm as updating. Updating is described here as a two-way practice, to be updated what is happening in your social networks as well as updating your social networks what is happening. These practices of updating are understood in light of late modern theories of reflexivity, identity negotiation and maintenance, practices that arguably are heightened in digital and networked societies. Hence to avoid determinism without resorting to the idea of technology as neutral, the paper is based in a techno-social dialectical understanding of our time as digital late modernity. The paper will end with a brief discussion of the implications of updating on political participation in digital late modernity. Even though not deliberation, practices of updating has consequences for participation and political action that perhaps could be considered positive and encouraging for democratic tradition in general.

    Participation as a Pin: Engagement in Political Clubs in an Online Swedish LGTB Community2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on a research project studying political discussions in the Swedish LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi- Transsexual) community Qruiser. Political discussions on Qruiser is defined as cultural participation and it is argued that not only may non institutionalized online arenas become spaces for political participation, we should broaden our focus to arenas of popular culture if aiming at understanding political participation in digital and late modern societies. The aim of this particular paper is to understand what motivated participation and how did participants understand their participating in Qruiser political clubs. This aim is operationalised by attending to a cultural method focusing on processes of meaning making. However, during the studied period very little participation took place in these clubs. The interview material suggests that club membership rather had the function of wearing a pin, in the digital age translated to displaying an icon on your profile page. It is further found that this declaration of content was important in a community primarily set up for dating. The paper then concludes that the participation in the clubs did not center on discussions, but rather around finding a potential date. The frame that thus motivated much of participation - here understood as displays of club memberships - was to find a date. Hence, political participation and dating are not mutually exclusive and may intersect in a network society.

    This paper is based on a research project studying political discussions in the Swedish LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-, Transsexual) community Qruiser. The aim is to understand what motivated participation in Qruiser political forum threads. The research is nethnographic through online interviews, participant observations in, and content analyses of, political discussions threads during November 2012. By using framing theory as an analytical tool, the paper seeks to answer which frames attracted and mobilized participation and how this was done. The paper finds that particularly frames of the left vs the right and the xenophobic vs the political correct motivated participation together with a general game frame.

    The Mediatization of Campaign Organizations: Social Media Practices in the Nina Larsson campaign2014In: Organizations and the Media: Organizing in a Mediatized World / [ed] Josef Pallas, Lars Strannegård and Stefan Jonsson, New Yotk: Routledge, 2014, p. 205-219Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter intends to discuss contemporary mediatization of campaign organizations. One starting point is in the contemporary rise of social media platforms and hype concerning campaign organizations. The other starting point is in theories of mediatization and media logics. The first question the chapter thus discusses is how media logics change with the contemporary rise of social media platforms. Given the argument that political organizations are especially aligned with the evolution of media, and given the hype around social media platforms in election campaigns, the subsequent question then becomes how do changing media logics interact with contemporary campaign organizations? To illustrate this contemporary mediatization of campaign organizations, the chapter will draw on a study of Nina Larsson. Larsson made extensive use of social media platforms to become re-elected to the Swedish Parliament in 2010. It is argued that discussing the Larsson campaign out of a theoretical horizon of changing media logics is beneficial for understanding campaign practices such as the amplification of news media texts, the recirculating of one’s own and others’ texts and performances on social media networks, as well as commending and supporting other party members.

    Lokaltidningen- en plats för opartiska nyheter eller reklamartiklar?: En kvantitativ innehållsanalys av hur förekomsten av textreklam ser ut i de lokala nyheterna i Sundsvalls Tidning och Hallandsposten2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Annonsintäkterna har gått ner för dagspressen, journalistiken ska vara billigare att producera och journalisterna får allt mer jobb på sina bord (SOU 2016:80, s. 115 och 170).

    2005 lades Pressens Textreklamskommitté ned och i och med den nedläggningen finns det inte längre något organ som kontrollerar hur mycket textreklam det skrivs i tidningar (Gustafsson, 2005:91).

    Syftet med vår undersökning att se hur det ser ut med textreklam och om det har ökat i den lokala nyhetsrapporteringen i Sundsvalls Tidning och Hallandsposten. Vi vill också se om det finns någon förändring över tid och jämföra de två tidningarna med varandra.

    Tidigare forskning som vi har utgått från är i huvudsak John H McManus som forskat inom marknadsdriven journalistik, Robert Picard som forskat om hur medierna ska upprätthålla sin kvalité och Gunnar Nygren om den förändrade yrkesrollen för journalister.

    För att undersöka detta har vi gjort en kvantitativ innehållsanalys där vi har analyserat artiklar från tio dagar 2010 och 2016 från respektive tidning. Totalt blev det 516 artiklar.

    Vårt resultat visade att textreklam har ökat i både Hallandsposten och Sundsvalls Tidning sedan 2010. Trots att det var färre artiklar i Sundsvalls Tidning var det mer vanligt med textreklam i artiklarna där. I Sundsvalls Tidning var det också vanligare att journalisten själv marknadsförde det artikeln handlade om.

    "De firade med en öl": En jämförelse av Dagens Nyhetersoch Aftonbladets rapportering om defängslade journalisterna i Etiopien2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att jämföra hur Dagens Nyheter respektive Aftonbladet rapporterade om de fängslade svenska journalisterna i Etiopien. Martin Schibbye och Johan Persson greps den 1 juli 2011 i Ogadenregionen i östra Etiopien efter att illegalt ha tagit sig in i landet med hjälp av den terrorstämplade gerillan ONLF. Händelsen fick stor uppmärksamhet i svenska medier.  Vi ville med vår undersökning studera om morgontidningar, i vårt fall Dagens Nyheter, tar efter kvällstidningarnas sätt att rapportera om stora händelser. Vi valde ut åtta artikelsidor eller uppslag ur de båda tidningar att analysera och formulerade följande frågeställningar:

    • Hur presenterades nyheterna kring Johan Persson och Martin Schibbyes tillfångatagande, rättegång, dom och frigivning i Dagens Nyheter respektive Aftonbladet, i de artikelsidor och uppslag som vi valde ut?
    • Vad finns det för likheter och skillnader i de artikelsidor och uppslag vi valt ut från Dagens Nyheter respektive Aftonbladet gällande tabloidisering?

    Utifrån dessa frågeställningar konstruerade vi en kvalitativ textanalys med kvantitativa inslag där vi ställde vi frågor till texterna som vi hade formulerat utifrån begreppet tabloidisering, för att undersöka om texterna var tabloidiserade.

    Resultatet visade att det fanns klara tendenser till tabloidsering i de sidor och uppslag vi analyserade i Dagens Nyheter. Detta resultat förklarade vi främst med tidningsbranschens ekonomiska situation. Vi fann även att det fanns stora likheter, både text- och bildmässigt i de undersökta tidningarna. Detta resultat förklarade vi huvudsakligen med medielogiken.

    “Fred är inte breaking news”: En kvalitativ fältstudie av fredsjournalistik i norra Uganda2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    Denna uppsats handlar om hur community radiostationerna Mega FM och Radio Wa i norra Uganda arbetar med fredsjournalistik. Syftet med uppsatsen är att öka förståelsen för relationen mellan community radio och fredsjournalistik. Det är inte bara relevant för journalistikvetenskapen, utan även för alla som är intresserade av utveckling och freds- och säkerhetsfrågor i konfliktområden. 

     

    Hur ser det fredsjournalistiska arbetet ut i praktiken på community radiostationerna Mega FM och Radio Wa?

     

    Vilka förutsättningar är nödvändiga, enligt Mega FM och Radio Wa, för att skapa ett generellt freds- och försoningsrelaterat radioprogram?

     

    Vilka svårigheter finns för att lyckas genomföra ett fredsjournalistiskt arbete, enligt Mega FM och Radio Wa?

     

    Frågeställningarna har besvarats genom kvalitativa informantintervjuer med radiojournalister i Gulu och Lira, och observationer. Det teoretiska ramverket inkluderar fredsforskning, utvecklingskommunikation, deltagande kommunikation, teorier om community radio och fredsjournalistik. Tyngdpunkt ligger på de senare. Teorin har operationaliserats genom att dela in de fredsjournalistiska kriterierna på en minimi- till maximiskala.

     

    Uppsatsen visar att Mega FM och Radio Wa är community radiostationer som arbetar fredsjournalistiskt, men inte på en maximinivå eftersom de inte fullt ut adresserar alla konflikter, eller tar en proaktiv roll som medlare utan använder sig av en tredje part. Framför allt utgör avsaknaden av pressfrihet och tidsbrist de främsta hindren för ett proaktiv fredsjournalistiskt arbete, samt att informanterna betonar att en allt för aktiv roll strider mot objektivitetsidealet, något även kritiker mot fredsjournalistiken har lyft fram.

    Film and Television Production as Audiovisual Design2018In: International Journal of Visual Design, ISSN 2325-1581, no 1, p. 39-51Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Industrial film and television production (FTP) includes many elements of creative work on sounds and images that are best addressed as audiovisual design. Two paradigmatic understandings of design, “design-as-problem-solving” and “design-as-meaning-creation”, have a bearing on these elements. The issues dealt with during FTP work processes, as well as the problems to be solved and the characteristics of the work processes used, resemble issues, problems, and process characteristics within design work. From the perspective of audiovisual communication, both the design and production aspects of a process are considered to make an important impact on a message. In FTP, these aspects are blurred. This paper discusses the benefits of approaching FTP as creation of audiovisual communication, in which design is an integrated part of that process. The benefits of considering FTP as audiovisual design are proposed from a design research perspective.

    Wayshowing i Visualiceringscenter C: Jämförelse av observationer under skyltskapande i virtuell miljo2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis is about wayshowing in a 3D model of Visualiseringscenter C, Norrköping. The aim is to examine different ways to make signs in a virtual environment and which of these ways is the easiest to apply for the user.

    The essay is based on theory regarding wayshowing and how a good sign should look in order to fulfill its purpose. With the use of this theory, signs have been created in a 3D environment. The collected data which the results are based on comes from two structured observations and one interview. The participant and the observer of the observations was the author herself and the interview was done with a student who has similar experiences in graphic design and 3D as the author.

    The observations evaluated two different ways to create signs. One way in which the texture was made before the signs were made in the 3D environment and one way in which the texture was made after the signs had been manufactured in the 3D environment. The results of the observations show that the latter approach is more convenient to use because it is easier to adjust the texture after the sign has been created. The observations also considered the digital processes used and the time spent on these processes. The observations revealed that rendering was the most used digital process. The digital process which was most time consuming was the use of tutorials, i.e. to acquire knowledge of how an previously unknown digital process could be performed. The observations also revealed that re-use of cameras, materials, and 3D models was time saving.

    Abstract [en]

    The current study set out to shed light on the performances that 2016 US presidential candidates used during their interventions on the late-night comedy shows. Following the methodologies ofCritical Discourse Analysis, the aim of the thesis was to uncover and, therefore, analyze, the type of discourses that candidates used in the shows and how they combined them. There was establisheda special focus on the rhetorical styles used by each candidate, as well as the emotional content ofthe discourses, unexpected situations and comedy performances, with the aim to find the elements which lead to virality. This study reveals the rhetorical strategies used by politicians through ananalysis of the political and personal discourses they used in late-nigh comedy shows. According tothe results, the political discourse is most prevalent during the interview than the personal, which isused to start conversations and evoke personalized emotions. The study provides insights upon the elements found in politicians’ discourses on the late-night circuit that lead to achieve virality on social media.

    Ethics within Journalistic Cultures in Spain and Sweden: A study on text and images from mainstream media online digital editions2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The topic of men’s violence against women has become visible in the recent years in the Western world, thanks to Social Media Network campaigns and digital news articles reporting these cases. The factors which affect or delimit journalist’s writings from different countries and their way of ‘doing’ journalism, might rely on the journalistic ethical boundaries within the journalistic cultures journalists inhabit.

    I explore and compare in this thesis the performative ethical action of journalists emerging from their writings and between the journalistic cultures of Spain and Sweden. Eighteen articles are analysed in a comparative and cross-national manner (Esser et al. 2012; Hanitzsch et al. 2011; Weaver 1998) helped by the Three Dimensional Critical Discourse Analysis model (Fairclough 1992/3; 1995)  and Semiotics (Wang 2014; Barthes 1957, 1963, 1964). ‘Diffraction’ (Barad 2007; Haraway 1997, 2004) is employed  as complementary perspective to reflect critically on differences, revealing where and how these materialize in regard to ethics within journalistic cultures.   

    The study  finds and concludes  that the performative ethical action of the journalist differs in regard to crime-news reported in each country. Detailed information of the parties involved in sexual violence is written in Spanish news-articles more often than in those from Sweden. The approach to these crimes seem to be framed by the journalistic ethical boundaries, journalistic cultures and personal ethical choices existing in both countries. These ethical ideas manifest by actions  -the published journalistic text - are relative and contextual. The cases told are part of the social realities of both countries, but are being experienced and performed (in writing) in a different manner also in terms of journalistic dimensions.

    The information presented to the news consumer in both written and visual form, differ or it is very similar between these countries, depending if it comes from mainstream ‘quality’ or ‘tabloid’ media outlets, but neutral images to illustrate the news-articles are the shown by both. Whereas the selected Spanish medias could be framed under a professional and relative ethical approach, the Swedish would fall under the category of professional and idealistic ethics. The similarities are that journalists from both countries keep-on informing on cases of men’s violence against women within the limits of  journalistic ethics and seem to be important key-actors producing information, culture and journalistic culture they inhabit while disseminating these stories.

    Arns makt: Representationer av makt, positivt kapital och livsmål i berättelserna om tempelriddaren Arn2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen behandlar böckerna och filmerna om Arn och undersöker genom berättelserna vilka representationer av makt, positivt kapital och livsmål som gestaltas. Uppsatsen baseras på den teoretiska tanken att populärkultur innehåller representationer med budskap, värderingar, normer och föreställningar gällande vår verklighet och därigenom påverkar vår uppfattning om världen, vår plats i samhället, vår identitet och vår uppfattning om vad som är värdefullt, viktigt och sant.

    Sverigedemokraterna och flyktingkrisen: En kritisk diskursanalys av Sverigedemokraterna i sociala medier2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats genomförs en kritisk diskursanalys av Sverigedemokraternas språk på sociala medier. Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur Sverigedemokraterna använder flyktingkrisen i sociala medier för att stärka sitt väljarstöd. Material från Facebook och Youtube analyseras multimodalt. Ett urval av detta material förs fram i uppsatsens analys för att belysa relevanta egenskaper i Sverigedemokraternas diskurs. Vi kan genom analysen se att Sverigedemokraterna i större utsträckning än andra partier talar om flyktingkrisen. De framställer även flyktingkrisen som mycket mer katastrofal än vad de tre andra partierna vi undersöker gör. Vidare använder de ett språk som avpersonaliserar flyktingen.
