    Abstract [en]

    'Strategic research' has become a goal of government policy throughout the industrial world. This paper follows the emergence of new approaches to the funding of 'strategic research' in Sweden, by examining three research foundations created in the late 1990s, and considers their ambitions, limitations, and achievements.

    Public-private innovation: Mediating roles and ICT niches of industrial research institutes2010In: INNOV-MANAG POLICY PRACT, ISSN 1447-9338, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 206-216Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Innovation processes involve diverse sets of organizations including universities, private firms, corporate research labs and public research institutes. Collaborative forms of knowledge production and innovative activity enable actors to reduce risk, specialize, and take advantage of knowledge internal and external to the own organization. This paper discusses interactions and collaborations between public and private sector innovation. This is done through an analysis of semi-public research institutes in Sweden and their roles as arenas for R&D processes involving industry, university and government in terms of funding, research and public-private innovation. Particular attention is paid to technological niches of research institutes and utilization of research findings from collaborative R&D. The results show that institutes occupy specific niches which influence their ways of transferring knowledge. It is argued that diversity among R&D performers as well as funding opportunities is paramount for innovation systems to thrive.

    Concentrating on CO(2): The Scandinavian and Arctic Measurements2011In: Osiris, ISSN 0369-7827, E-ISSN 1933-8287, Vol. 26, p. 165-179Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article concerns atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO(2)) measurements made in Scandinavia and in the Arctic region before measurements started at Mauna Loa, Hawaii, in 1958. The CO(2) hypothesis of climate change was one reason to measure atmospheric CO(2) in the mid-1950s. The earlier history of CO(2) measurements-for instance, the work of the chemist Kurt Buch-was also influential in this period. It is unclear when the CO(2) hypothesis of climate change began to provide sufficient motivation for measurements, and the measurements may relate in a nonlinear way to the growth in popularity of the hypothesis. Discussions between meteorologist Carl-Gustaf Rossby at Stockholm Hogskola and scientists in America reveal how different kinds of CO(2) studies varied with regard to precision.

    Dynamics of knowledge production in the Swedish Institute for Surface Chemistry, 1975-20052011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish industrial research institutes are research organisations that exist somewhat in between academy and industry, fulfilling an intermediary role as well as providing a space for research relevant to industrial companies, and they have a history of being funded by both state and industry as a way to support technical research in Sweden. The present study examines the history one of these institutes – the Institute for Surface Chemistry – with respect to three dimensions of its knowledge production: the role that basic and applied research has played for the institute, its external connections and the heterogeneity of its knowledge production, and how it has evaluated the quality of its research. The time period considered is 1975-2005, a challenging time for the Swedish institute sector, and the analysis is based on an interpretation of annual reports, research programs and newsletters from the period, as well as on interviews with institute managers and researchers.This work contributes to a wider research field in two respects. First, it provides input to the ongoing debate about how a changing research system is linked to changes in knowledge production. Second, it increases our knowledge of the Swedish industrial research institute sector, something interesting in its own right but that also can provide input to the ongoing policy reorientation vis-à-vis these institutes. The main novelty of the work is that it engagessystematically and historically with changes in knowledge production within an industrial research institute, something not done in previous studies of the sector.

    To briefly summarise the results, applied research gradually becomes more important than basic research at the institute, but basic research still keeps playing a rather large role for some time, even as this roleis downplayed in the official publications. At the same time, the institute becomes more heterogeneous in its knowledge production, associates closer with its industrial partners, and loses some of its independent knowledge production in favour of a more classic intermediary role. During the study period, the institute mainly ascertains the quality of its work through the use of traditional academic standards, and it retains a strong publication culture throughout.Three main conclusions are drawn: that the institute generally has oriented itself more towards its industrial partners; that this is the result of adapting to a situation in which the traditional state funding and political support appear ever more insecure; and that in spite of this general dynamic of adaption, the institute, thanks to a unique knowledge base or strong and well-connected actors, has sometimes been able to defend its preferred modes of knowledge production instead of adapting,something which also has had a notable impact on its development.

    Abstract [en]

    This special issue of Television & New Media brings together current research on media technologies, society, and culture in the Middle East from diverse methodological and analytical perspectives. The topics addressed cover a wide spectrum: circulation of Arab music videos and public discourse; Lebanese bloggers and mediated public spheres; transnational television audiences and ontological security; social media, TV talk shows, and political change in Egypt; youth-generated Arab media and cultural politics; and the Arab Spring as an ephemeral communicative space. Together, the articles provide a panorama of how today's multimodal media geographies and engaged actors reinscribe public cultures and politics in the Middle East.

    Online mediations in transnational spaces: cosmopolitan (re)formations of belonging and identity in the Turkish diaspora2012In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, ISSN 0141-9870, E-ISSN 1466-4356, Vol. 35, no 5, p. 888-905Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The lives of transnational groups and individuals are marked by a spatial and imaginary split: a phenomenon wherein identity, belonging and representation have become increasingly elusive concepts, and the realm of the ‘cultural’ vastly important. And, the theoretical compasses of cosmopolitanism and transnationalism are particularly relevant and illuminating in considering social space, mediated communication and belonging in relation to urban diasporic communities and gendered subjectivities. The aim of this paper is to address expressions of identity and belonging at the intersection of online communicative practice and offline spatial formations, with a focus on the specificities of gendered constructions of sociality and subjectivity in the diaspora.

    Transnational Communicative Sociality between Mobility and Fixity: The Case of the Turkish Migrants2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns itself with the potentiality latent in online social networking sites for constituting a communicative space for politics and cultural voice in transnational contexts. The fluidity (in terms of spatial borders and participatory practices) of online fora takes political engagement and identificatory experiences to a new level where the offline and the online merge and collide, resulting in both continuity and rupture. Amongst the Turkish transnationals in Sweden, new social constellations such as Turks in Stockholm and Swedish Turks have recently emerged on Facebook as popular meeting points. Identity and politics on these sites are articulated both against and alongside of categories and politics represented by longstanding diasporic representative bodies and mainstream media, thereby constituting new spaces for communicative sociality, for clash and solidarity, and new sphericules for political deliberation. This paper will investigate mediated political discourse and articulations of transnational social imaginaries based on qualitative fieldwork.

    The Arab Spring As Meta-Event and Communicative Spaces2013In: Television and New Media, ISSN 1527-4764, E-ISSN 1552-8316, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 351-364Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, immediately labeled "the Arab Spring," are best described as processes rather than outcomes. Despite being a common area of media focus due to decades-long geopolitics, the Arab Spring, as a mediatized meta-event, has led to the reemergence of the region as a discursive territory. The communicative spaces that opened up during and in the aftermath of the uprisings allowed for a multiplicity of topics to reenter public discourse across local, national, and transnational scales. In the process, seasoned debates such as religious sectarianism and democratic institutionalization gained magnitude. More specific debates such as Turkey's role as a model/antimodel added new discursive aspects to the multitopic ensemble. The purpose of this article is to reflect on the communicative and scalar dimensions in the mediation of the Arab Spring by way of taking the debates on Turkey as a case in point.

    Cultural citizenship and the communicative space of mediated sexual expressivity2011In: International Journal of Media and Cultural Politics, ISSN 1740-8296, E-ISSN 2040-0918, Vol. 7, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of pornography in contemporary media societies constitutes one of the underresearched areas in media and communication studies. The purpose of this article is to explore the potentiality latent in the user-porn-related Internet domains, blogs and forums – as extensions of offline agency and sociality – for motivating communicative action and engagement with civic practice in various forms. In this study, we utilize an interdisciplinary approach that feeds from social, political and cultural theory and we take ‘self-pornographic pursuit as cultural citizenship’ as a paradigmatic intersection. The discussion is based on our analysis of a variety of expressive venues (some purely online, some amalgamated with the offline) over the course of our preliminary research. Of these, we refer to two Swedish examples: Bodycontact, a sexual dating site, and Dirty Diaries, a feminist film project and the adjacent website, as illustrative of the theoretical arguments presented throughout our discussion.

    Media and the Politics of Arctic Climate Change: When the Ice Breaks2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Arctic sea-ice reached record lows in 2007, and again in 2012. In the international news media, these moments were reflected via striking images of polar bears, crumbling ice chunks and the use of more alarmist metaphors about global climate change. Through these narratives, and despite the periodic disappearance of climate change from media reports due to issue fatigue, a sharper narrative of climate change has entered public discourse: a new global reality where the future is no longer a given. Going beyond media studies as well as descriptive or highly scientific accounts of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic, this book explores how both historical and contemporary mediations, scientific narratives and satellite technology simultaneously capture and reconstruct this new reality of the Anthropocene, where human activities shape the planet. By highlighting the linkages between science, media, environmental change and geopolitics, the informed contributors to the volume invite the reader to reflect on what is local and what is global in today's connected mediatized world.

    Developing an Integrated History and future of People on Earth (IHOPE)2012In: Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, ISSN 1877-3435, E-ISSN 1877-3443, Vol. 4, no 1, p. 106-114Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Integrated History and future of People on Earth (IHOPE) initiative is a global network of researchers and research projects with its International Program Office (IPO) now based at the Stockholm Resilience Center (SRC), Uppsala University, Arizona State University, Portland State University, and the Australian National University. Research linked to IHOPE demonstrates that Earth system changes in the past have been strongly associated with changes in the coupled human-environment system. IHOPE supports integrating knowledge and resources from the biophysical and the social sciences and the humanities to address analytical and interpretive issues associated with coupled human-earth system dynamics. This integration of human history and Earth system history is a timely and important task. Until recently, however, there have been few attempts at such integration. IHOPE will create frameworks that can be used to help achieve this integration. The overarching goal is to produce a rich understanding of the relationships between environmental and human processes over the past millennia. HOPE recognizes that one major challenge for reaching this goal is developing 'workable' terminology that can be accepted by scholars of all disciplines. The specific objectives for IHOPE are to identify slow and rapidly moving features of complex social-ecological systems, on local to continental spatial scales, which induce resilience, stress, or collapse in linked systems of humans in nature. These objectives will be reached by exploring innovative ways of conducting interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science, including theory, case studies, and integrated modeling. Examples of projects underway to implement this initiative are briefly discussed.

    Technomedical Visions: Magnetic Resonance Imaging in 1980s Sweden2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The medical imaging technology called MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) stems from a blind measurement technology which was further developed in research and practice to enable seeing into the inner body. Vision with MRI was open-ended, and it was developed and tamed in a context of fragmented medical perspectives on the body and on technology. "Technomedical Visions" addresses the formation of MRI’s specific visualities in the first decade of its introduction in Sweden.

    The purpose of this dissertation is to explore how vision with MRI has been constructed in practice in relation to existing ways of knowing the body within medicine. Dussauge investigates first the early decisions that led to a national evaluation of MRI technology in the mid-1980s in Sweden. Then she addresses the shaping of MRI’s quantitative visuality in the practices of radiology, psychiatry and the laboratory, with focus on microhistories at St. Göran’s Hospital, Karolinska Institutet, Uppsala University Hospital, and Lund University.

    Dussauge shows that whereas authorities’ early decisions momentarily defined MRI as a radiological tool for immediate clinical use and evaluation, a crucial part of MRI’s introduction was the work conducted by MRI-users. These researchers from a range of scientific and medical disciplines performed, over time, a multitude of shapings of MRI’s vision. This studies shows how MRI was made congruent with existing technomedical gazes. The novel MRI gaze was made intelligible within cross-referential networks, and researchers reproduced technomedicine’s existing gazes both in the production, optimization and interpretation of MRI representations.

    Technomedical time frames, epistemologies and definitions of the normal and the pathological were reproduced and sometimes, re-cast, in the shaping of MRI in practice. This study also demonstrates that anatomy recurrently worked as an underlying frame for the exploration and production of MRI visions. Anatomy’s material visuality provided a site for the production of novel facts at the intersection of existing gazes. Through the practices of shaping MRI gazes, anatomy was systematically remediated, reproduced and reconfigured.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper is a presentation of a research project that aims at writing the history of computing in Sweden in the mainframe age from a user perspective. Rather than beginning with the history of hardware, this project takes as its point of departure the way in which actors in different sectors of society used computer technology in order to achieve a higher degree of control over crucial processes, whether through electronic data processing systems, process control or technical/scientific computation.

    Instruments of Surveillance Welfare: Computerizing Unemployment and Health in 1960s and 1970s Sweden2011In: HISTORY OF NORDIC COMPUTING 3 / [ed] Impagliazzo, J Lundin, P Wangler, B, SPRINGER-VERLAG BERLIN , 2011, p. 56-+Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The object of this paper is the role of computerization in the establishment of a specific form of "surveillance welfare" after World War II. Was computerization used as a technology of mass-welfaring to produce a governable population in the frame of an expanding welfare state? Large-scale welfare practices such as health screenings and databasing of the unemployed seem to have a common purpose: making the population into a governable, partially self-regulating, collective body-a welfare body. The paper analyzes the use of computers in the implementation of regional health screenings in the 1960s and the 1970s and in the transformation of (un)employment procedures in the 1970s as two sites for the exercise of state control in post-WWII Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this article is to draw attention to a long-standing history of exhibiting disasters to distant audiences. In particular, the article explores the transregional imaginaries and cross-temporal connections that emerge from the history of what may be labelled the disaster display or disaster show. This refers to a particular genre of multimedia re-enactments of extreme events that developed in the context of temporary exhibitions and popular amusements in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Disaster displays typically involved visual representations, sound effects, fireworks, lectures and theatrical performances, and invited their audiences to experience a diversity of extreme events, for example distant wars, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, fire fighting and floods. In offering a blend of special effects and the thrills of authenticity, disaster shows copied and competed with, and sometimes incorporated, some of the traits of a variety of attractions in turn-of-the-century popular visual culture, such as serialized wax displays, moving panoramas and early film. The article especially investigates some of these intermedialities but it also discusses how the displays engaged and positioned the audience.

    "Showing at One View": Ferdinand Boberg's "Statistical Machinery" and the Visionary Pedagogy of Early Twentieth-Century Statistical Display2008In: Early Popular Visual Culture, ISSN 1746-0654, E-ISSN 1746-0662, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 35-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article highlights the educational and intermedial discourses that developed around the representation of statistics in museums and temporary exhibitions in the early twentieth century. It is especially concerned with pictorial representations of statistics and the visual realism that were attributed to the statistical media by educational reformers. The article also aims to discuss how experimentation with statistical displays around the turn of the twentieth century can be related to other media usages in the same period. In this perspective, the article describes two statistical pavilions erected by the Swedish architect Ferdinand Boberg for temporary exhibitions in Helsingborg in 1903 and Stockholm in 1909. On these occasions, Boberg developed a figurative method of representing statistics using moving models, or what he referred to as a 'statistical machinery'. This work drew on popular forms of picture statistics, but also on a much wider range of fairground attractions. At the 1909 exhibition, the statistical pavilion was placed in the entertainments section, next to staged enactments and rides, and it is argued that it was from these amusements that Boberg copied and refined techniques to attract the attention of the audience. In the conclusion of the article, there is a brief discussion on the educational, political and aesthetic visions that developed around the statistical museums at the beginning of the twentieth century, and especially in relation to the picture statistics developed by Otto Neurath.
