    När lokaltidningen lämnar: En kvalitativ undersökning av politikernas reaktioner på Arbetarbladets flytt ifrån Hofors2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I vår studie har vi undersökt hur politiker i Hofors kommun hanterar och uppfattar situationen efter att Arbetarbladet 2014 flyttade sin lokalredaktion i Hofors till Sandviken. Detta eftersom redaktionen var kommunens sista och vi ville undersöka om och hur de upplever centraliseringens påverkan. Genom telefonintervjuer med 17 förtroendevalda politiker i Hofors kommun har vi undersökt det. Vi har också sett till att Arbetarbladet bemött politikernas åsikter, vilket de fick göra i form av en intervju med tidningens nyhetschef Jacob Hilding där vi presenterade politikernas svar för honom och han fick ge sin bild av situationen.

    Politikerna är missnöjda med den nuvarande situationen, deras förtroende är lågt för Arbetarbladets rapportering och enligt dem är kvaliteten också låg. Lokaljournalistiken upplevs ha försämrats kraftigt sedan lokalredaktionen flyttade enligt nästan samtliga respondenter. Jacob Hilding tror inte att den har försämrats utan tror att redaktionen på plats hade mer av en symbolisk effekt.

    Politikerna vänder sig mer och mer till sociala medier för att nå ut med sitt budskap, och de politiker som håller fast vid lokaltidningen upplever att det blivit lite eller mycket svårare att nå ut med sitt budskap i tidningen. Denna studie visar att lokaltidningen fortfarande är den vanligaste källan bland respondenterna då alla läste den innan flytten och 14 fortfarande gör det idag. Användandet av sociala medier och bloggar som huvudsaklig nyhetskälla har ökat från två till sex respondenter och två av de som slutat läsa lokaltidningen huvudsakligen har gått över till sociala medier eller bloggar som källor.

    På en punkt har politikerna svarat enhälligt, även Jacob Hilding. Alla är negativt inställda till centraliseringen av lokalmedia över hela Sverige och medieskuggan den skapar. Många av politikerna tror att den kommer leda till lokaljournalistikens död och vissa tar även upp ryktesspridning som en konsekvens.

    Studies of Video Practices: Video at Work2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The last two decades have seen a rapid increase in the production and consumption of video by both professionals and amateurs. The near ubiquity of devices with video cameras and the rise of sites like YouTube have lead to the growth and transformation of the practices of producing, circulating, and viewing video, whether it be in households, workplaces, or research laboratories.

    This volume builds a foundation for studies of activities based in and around video production and consumption. It contributes to the interdisciplinary field of visual methodology, investigating how video functions as a resource for a variety of actors and professions.

    Håkan Juholt och Skavlan: En uppsats om pratshowens möjligheter och begränsningar för partiledare i förtroendekris2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay examines the appearance of Håkan Juholt, former party leader of the swedish social democratic party, in the norwegian/swedish talk show Skavlan, during Juholt’s crisis of confidence in the autumn of 2011. In this appearance it is clear that Juholt is badly treated by the host Fredrik Skavlan, and his guest, writer and journalist Linn Ullmann, while the audience seems to applaud and laugh at Skavlans and Ullmanns criticisms.

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate how, and why Juholt is treated in this way, and which rhetorical strategies Skavlan and Ullmann employ to create community between them selves and their audience. To understand this occurrence it is important to study Juholt’s rhetorical situation, and which conditions his lack of confidence creates for his appearance in Skavlan. Thus, I will perform two comparative analyses, by using cluster criticism, on one hand on how Juholt was spoken of in the media, and on the other hand on how Juholt is spoken of in his appearance in Skavlan. The goal of the first analysis is to determine how Aftonbladet are valuing Juholt, and how Aftonbladet are framing the ethos of Juholt. The goal of the second analysis is to identify how Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt, versus how Juholt is valuing himself. The purpose in doing this way is to identify a pattern, a common denominator, on how Juholt was framed in Aftonbladet and how Skavlan and Ullmann are responding to Juholt. This would show that Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt the same way as Aftonbladet did, i.e. negatively, and that their valuation are a result of Aftonbladets framing of Juholt, while Juholt is valuing himself positively.

    The results show a pattern in that both Aftonbladet and subsequently Skavlan and Ullmann are valuing Juholt negatively, and that both Skavlan and Ullmann are treating Juholt with suspicion and distance. First of all, the results show the persuasive effect Aftonbladet’s framing on Juholt had on Skavlan’s and Ullmann’s way in relating to Juholt. Secondly, the results show Juholt’s inability to adapt his communication to the situational constraints that surrounds both his crisis of confidence and the talk show as a medium. Thirdly, the results point to humour as an important rhetorical strategy to achieve identification and differentiation. Finally, this essay points to the talk show’s role as an admittedly important platform for consensus-building politicians, however, this requires an understanding of the rhetorical situation, and which cultural constraints that are inherent in both the audiences’ expectations on talk shows as a medium, and the host’s attempt at making an entertaining programme.

    Unsichtbare Hände: Automatismen in Medien-, Technik- und Diskursgeschichte2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Im Verhältnis von Medien, Technik und Menschen gewinnt Unkontrolliertes an Terrain: ›Intelligente‹ Objekte scheinen nach eigenen Gesetzen zu handeln, im gesellschaftlichen Raum setzt sich durch, was niemand gewollt hat, Prozesse verselbstständigen sich. Der Band knüpft – durchaus kritisch – an die Geschichte einer populären Metapher an und wirft ein neues Licht auf Prozesse, die hinter dem Rücken der Subjekte nicht kalkulierbare Wirkungen haben. Mit der Perspektive der Automatismen verbunden, zeigt der Band mit Beiträgen aus dem Bereich der Kultur- und Medienwissenschaft, der Soziologie und Informatik, wie sich Strukturen jenseits bewusster Planung durch Selbststeuerung etablieren.

    Automatismen – Selbst-Technologien2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Mit Automatismen zwangsläufig verbunden ist die Frage nach dem Selbst und nach den Bedingungen, die es hervorbringen. Automatismen setzen ein ›Selbst‹ einerseits voraus, andererseits ist zu fragen, wie ein ›Selbst‹ entsteht, wie es sich stabilisiert und reproduziert, und welchen Anteil hieran wiederum Automatismen haben. Auf Seiten der Technik kann das Konzept der Automatismen abgegrenzt werden gegenüber Theorien zum Automaten. Im Fokus des Bandes stehen Selbsttechnologien in einem umfassenden Sinne: kulturelle Muster der Selbstkonstitution, Prozesse der Selbststeuerung und Praktiken der Selbstführung wie auch Formen des Selbstmanagements.

    Post-Privacy and Ideology2014In: Media, Surveillance and Identity: Social Perspectives / [ed] André Jansson & Miyase Christensen, New York, NY: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2014, p. 218-237Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We offer reflections on the counter-discourse of “post-privacy” that has become prevalent among some net activists. The post-privacy position advocates the abandonment of privacy activism and personal privacy hygiene based on the conviction that digital privacy is both untenable and socially unrewarded. This laissez-faire attitude towards surveillance reveals deep anxieties about the loss of control over domains previously associated with autonomy, self-presentation and personal visibility. In our effort to make sense of post-privacy advocacy, we propose a framework within which post-privacy ideology is interpreted through the doxa and the praxis of maintaining personal online privacy under conditions of state and corporate surveillance.

    ÅH! Vad trendigt: Inspirationssökning, inställning till design, trender och plagiering hos designers och studenter2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Our essay is based on qualitative interviews that we have carried out with professional designers and students who are new to the field of design. From now on, we do only refer to these as "students". We have also collected literature studies to our work and reported these. The reason why we have chosen to interview designers who work professionally with design and design students is that we wanted to be able to compare the answers from these both groups with each other to see what parts they agree on and disagree on when it comes to inspiration, trends and ethics.Our result that we have retrieved in this essay shows that professional designers and students both agree and disagree in different parts when it comes to inspiration, trends and ethics. Both of these groups use, for instance, the social network Pinterest to find inspiration. The professional designers are rather looking for inspiration through portfolio pages where they know they will find materials of good quality than by Google. The students, however, do often search for inspiration by Google by using keywords. When it comes to design trends the professional designers consider trends as important in order to develop the society and themselves as designers. The students on the other hand have a desire that all design should feel timeless and that we should focus on creating sustainable design instead. When it comes to where the line between being inspired by a design and to copy it outright goes, both professional designers and students agrre on that it is permissible to copy some elements from other design work that they then use to create something own. But they agree on that a design has become a plagiarism of something else if an entire layout or design has been copied without any modifications were made

    Interaktiv manual för en fysisk produkt: Hur interaktivitet påverkar instruktioner för skapandet av en fysisk produkt.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna undersökning syftar till att undersöka huruvida interaktivitet kan göra instruktioner för en fysisk uppgift mer effektiva. För att göra detta skapades två applikationer som instruerade i vikningen av en origamifigur i form av en båt. En version implementerade interaktiva element medan den andra inte gjorde det. Testpersoner fick genomföra halva uppgiften med vardera applikationen och sedan fylla i en enkät. Inga definitiva svar hittades i undersökningen, men den skulle kunna användas som grund eller inspiration för vidare forskning.

    Media menus of Arabic speakers: Stockholm2010In: Journalism - Theory, Practice & Criticism, ISSN 1464-8849, E-ISSN 1741-3001, Vol. 11, no 6, p. 751-754Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines preliminary results of a focus group study where Arabic speakers living in Stockholm discuss matters of citizenship and belonging in relation to their use of Arabic- and Swedish-language television. The study relies on theories on diasporic groups' media use. The paper concludes that belonging to the country of origin appears as more clearly and strongly felt than belonging to the pan-Arabic community, and that participants' sense of belonging does not relate in any direct way to their media choices.

    The Social Shaping of European Digital Radio2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the social shaping of digital radio in Europe and provides new insights about the main competing technologies and the discourses built around their capabilities.

    The radio frequency spectrum is a limited resource and in order to be used in the most efficient way different organizations have been researching optimizing standards since the mid-1980s. The Eureka-147 project produced the first European digital broadcasting standard DAB whose development have been initially fostered by public service broadcasters and electronics manufacturers, consequently by commercial broadcasters and governmental institutions.

    The design and policy of DAB did not manage to grasp the attention and support of all the actors present in the nascent digital radio industry. A decade after its launch DAB was followed by other digital radio standards, as DAB+ and DRM, in the role of complements/competitors. At the same time the Internet started to be used as infrastructure for delivering radio or sound entertainment content.

    Thirty years after the beginning of the European digital radio experience, the picture is still complex and no technology achieved a complete and harmonized implementation. Across Europe, countries have been involved in the digitalization of radio to different extent: Norway announced FM transmissions shutdown in 2017, UK and Switzerland have developed an almost nationally wide digital network coverage and are about to run their switchover plans, some other countries as Sweden and Italy are still in a transmission-trial and evaluation phase.

    The history of digital radio in Europe offers ground for a Social Shaping of Technology analysis as exposed in “The Social construction of technological systems” (1987) by Wiebe Bijker, Thomas Hughes and Trevor Pinch. The Social Shaping of Technology claims that technologies and their outcomes are always socially negotiated. According to this theoretical framework and in particular to the Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) methodology, it is possible to highlight a number of social groups negotiating the final technology in the development of every artefact. In particular SCOT allows to find points of interpretative flexibility, namely diverging interpretations that different groups have of a same technology or a particular feature of it. These arguments or discourses are built around a technology or its features in order to foster a particular concerns of the corresponding group.

    This master thesis analyses the development of digital radio in Europe according to the framework provided by the Social Shaping of Technology, enriching the number of case studies that have been conducted following this framework. In this way the dissertation “The Social Shaping of European Digital Radio” provides an overview on the social, political and economic forces which negotiated the technology throughout its development and provides a deeper understanding of the overall digital media technology industry.

    From Vision to Transition: Exploring the Potential for Public Information Services to Facilitate Sustainable Urban Transport2014Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Policy initiatives to promote sustainable travel through the use of Internet based public information systems have increased during the last decade. Stockholm, in being one of the first cities in Europe to implement an Internet based service for facilitating sustainable travel is believed to be a good candidate for an analysis of key issues for developing sustainable travel planning services to the public.

    Aim: This thesis investigates the past development of two Stockholm based public information systems and their services in order to draw lessons on how to better provide for a public information service geared towards facilitating  environmentally sustainable travel planning through information and communications technology. The overall goal of the thesis is to contribute to an understanding on how to better design and manage current and future attempts at facilitating sustainable travel planning services based on historical case studies.

    Approach: The thesis draws ideas from the concept of organizational responsiveness – an organization’s ability to listen, understand and respond to demands put to it by its internal and external stakeholders – in order to depict how well or not the two public information systems and their owners have adapted to established norms and values of their surroundings.

    Results: Overall, the findings from the historical case studies suggest that organizations attempting to provide sustainable travel planning to the public need to design and manage their systems in such a way that it responds to shifting demands on how to provide for information. Implementing and embedding new technologies involves complex processes of change both at the micro level – for users and practitioners of the service – and at the meso level for the involved public service organizations themselves. This condition requires a contextualist framework to analyze and understand organizational, contextual and cultural issues involved in the adoption of new technologies and procedures.

    Conclusions: The thesis concludes with a discussion on how the findings from the historical case studies may provide lessons for both current and future attempts at providing public information systems geared towards facilitating environmentally sustainable travel planning to the public. Historical examples and issues concerning collective intelligence and peer to peer based forms of designing, producing and supervising public information services identified throughout the study are looked upon and discussed in terms of their possible role in increasing the potential for public information services to facilitate sustainable urban transport.

    The purpose of our degree project is to create an increased understanding of what tonality municipalities use in their posts on Facebook. The aim of the work is that afterwards there should be clearer guidelines for how a municipality should express itself on Facebook in order to promote the commitment that arises. Our questions are: What tonality does municipalities use in their posts on Facebook? And how does the municipality's tonality on Facebook affect the commitment that occurs? Research will be limited to the four municipalities: Munkedal, Trollhättan, Uddevalla, and Vänersborg, all of which have different degrees of commitment to their Facebook publications (SKL, 2010). The reasons behind the choice of municipalities are that it gives us a wide range of urban and rural municipalities as well as the spread of size between these municipalities. As a method, we used a case study and a content analysis. We categorize the ways we see that municipalities use Facebook. The categories we could distinguish were encouraging, inviting, authoritative and informative. In addition, we saw how the municipalities could express themselves either personally or impersonally.   When it comes to our first issue, we saw that in many places an informative and impersonal tonality is used. It was also that the tonality of posts shifted from posts to posts within the same municipality, which gave the impression that they had no strategy behind how to express themselves on Facebook.

    When it comes to our second issue, we can see much earlier research suggesting that personal tonality is more inviting than neutral (Zavattaroa, Frenchb and Mohantyc, 2015, Kellher and Miller, 2006). Much of the communication that takes place is of typical state-of-the-art design. It is one-way communication that does not call for discussion and creates significantly less commitment than two-way communication (Liu and Horsley, 2007). We therefore recommend municipalities to strive for a two-way communication which gives rise to a greater degree of feedback from the followers (Moonhee et al. 2014).

    Abstract

    Denna C-uppsats i journalistik heter Författare från den afrikanska kontinenten i pressen – framställning under 2012 och 2013 och är skriven av Jonas Carlsson.

    Det har funnits en debatt inom media om hur kulturutövare från Afrika framställs i media. Syftet med denna studie är att öka förståelsen för hur författare från den afrikanska kontinenten framställs i svensk dagspress på dess nätupplagor, alltså vilka diskurser finns det kring dessa författare? Frågeställningarna är:

    Hur framställs författare från den afrikanska kontinenten i den svenska dagspressens nätupplagor 2012-2013?

    På vilket sätt får författare från den afrikanska kontinenten komma till tals i artiklarna?

    Hur framträder dikotomin vi/dom i artiklarna och hur leder detta i så fall till utestängning/integrering av författarna?

     

    En huvudsaklig teori är postkolonial teori som behandlar hur synen på folk från Afrika har sett ut före, under och efter kolonialtiden. Medieteorier som exempelvis att redaktioners sammansättning påverkar hur olika folk framställs i media används också i viss utsträckning. Central för metoden är Foucaults diskursteori om hur språket används för att forma diskurser. För att kunna utröna olika diskurser har flera analyskategorier utvecklats för att fånga olika aspekter av framställningen av författare från Afrika, till exempel vad de får representera, vilka författare de jämförs med och om de får komma till tals i artiklarna. Utifrån detta avgörs om de blir en del av ett ”vi” eller ”dom” och slutligen om de blir integrerade eller utestängda.

    Resultatet av studien är inte entydig. (Svarta) författare från Afrika jämförs ofta med varandra och får representera något generellt ”afrikanskt”, men ofta motiveras det med relevanta resonemang. Författarna kan ha något gemensamt som Afrikas koloniala historia. Det finns dock undantagsfall. Ett annat resultat är att svarta afrikanska författare får oproportionerligt litet utrymme i media. Det är ett exempel på att en de utmålas som ”dom” och i förlängningen ett utestängande. Denna uppsats är en liten början på ett område där det skulle behövas mer forskning. Ett förslag är att gå långt tillbaka i tiden för att se om det går att se skillnader och trender i framställningen av författare från Afrika över tid.

    Androgyna ansikten: En studie i hur teorier om genusstereotypa ansiktsdrag kan användas för att designa genusneutrala ansikten2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Målet med det här arbetet har varit att undersöka huruvida ett trovärdigt androgynt ansikte kan skapas genom att blanda genuskonventionella ansiktsdrag, samt hur kvinnliga respektive manliga ansiktsdragen måste vara för att ansiktet ska tolkas som androgynt.

    Fem bilder som föreställer ansikten i varierande grad av androgynitet har skapats som artefakt utifrån en förstudie av spelkaraktärer. Bilderna användes sedan i samband med semi-strukturerade kvalitativa intervjuer där tio informanter fick svara på hur kvinnliga och manliga de ansåg att karaktärernas ansikten var.

    Undersökningens resultat tyder på att ett trovärdigt androgynt ansikte kan skapas och att androgyna ansikten bör ha något starkare influenser av genuskonventionellt manliga ansiktsdrag än kvinnliga för att uppfattas som androgynt.

    En fortsättning av arbetet skulle kunna göras genom en större undersökning med fler informanter från olika kulturer och samhällen. Detta med hjälp av en artefakt i 3D-grafik informanterna kan interagera med, mer som i en riktig spelmiljö.

    A call to arms. An essay on the role of the intellectual and the need for producing new imaginaries2014In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 77-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The essay takes a historical reflection on the identity of the intellectual as a starting point, highlighting four key debates that have tried to provide meaning to this identity. These debates concern the intellectual's class position, the intellectual's connection to other classes and social groups, the location of the intellectual and the relationship with the university, and the publicness of the intellectual. These debates then feed into a more engaged reflection on the desirability of intellectuals to intervene in a society characterised by three types of crisis - the crisis of representative democracy, the economic crisis and the crisis of mimesis - investigating how their rethorics can be transformed into counter-hegemonic discourses. Although it is argued that the production of new ideological projects is not straightforward - because of the complex relationship between agency and discursive structures, the evenly difficult relationship between complexity and simplicity, and the ontological issues triggered by the crisis of mimesis - the essay pleads for the establishment of networks of intellectuals, driven by principles of value centrality, modular collaboration and non-essentialism, that allow them to critically rethink our core social structures, in order to establish new horizons to imagine social change.

    Articulating participation and agonism: A case study on the agonistic re-articulations of the Cyprus Problem in the broadcasts of the community broadcaster MYCYradio2015In: The Cyprus Review - A Journal of Social, Economic and Political Issues, ISSN 1015-2881, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 129-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article starts with a discussion on the material and discursive components of conflicttransformation, arguing for the need to complement the dominance of material andpsychological approaches with a more discursive-cultural approach. This plea contextualisesthe analysis of a series of broadcasts of the Cypriot web community radio station, MYCYradio.Supported by the Mouffe’s (discourse-) theoretical conceptualisations of antagonism andagonism, the analysis focuses on the broadcasts of three MYCYradio shows. For each show, 10episodes, broadcast between September and November 2013 are analysed, using discoursetheoreticalanalysis. Through this analysis, four main re-articulations are identified in theMYCYradio shows: the overcoming/decentralising of the divide, the deconstruction of the self(and the enemy), the reconfiguration of time, and the elaboration of the cost of the conflict.The analysis shows that community media, despite the many different problems they face,have particular abilities to support agonistic discourses.
