Abstract [en]

  

Visual culture continues to be seen as peripheral to journalism, despite the centrality of image flows and visual technologies in both the private and public spheres of contemporary media.  This chapter addresses this lacuna, first by elaborating central concepts and theoretical tents from the field of visual culture, and then by suggesting how they can contribute to a better understanding of the cultures of journalism, viewed both historically and in the present media environment

Abstract [en]

Inspired by Walter Benjamin-s classical Arcades Project, Consuming Media is a pioneering exploration of the interface between communication, shopping and everyday life. Based on a six-year -intersectional- ethnographic fieldwork by over a dozen scholars on a specific site, it analyses the links between media and consumption in contemporary urban culture and public space. The book is organized into ten chapters. The first two chapters introduce key ideas and theories. In the next four chapters, four large media circuits are scrutinized. The final four chapters discuss the results in terms of intermedial relations, time, space and power. The book thus offers a new foundation for understanding media use, consumption and the fate of urban public space in late modernity

2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This report discusses ideas of a radical increase in the significance and scope of culture in modern society, where industrialism is said to have been superseded by a society of information, knowledge and experiences. Issues of cultural identity and community are increasingly focal concerns, the virtual worlds of media culture seem omnipotent, and the cultural sector is growing with each of its recurrent redefinitions. Politics and the economy are supposedly aestheticised, culture and design boost regional development, creativity is a core value. The theses of revolutionary -culturalisation- of society and everyday life have a long history through the various cultural turns proclaimed by scholars as well as in society at large. The report scrutinises some main arguments and their implications, pointing at a need to distinguish historical trends, material processes and ideological discourses. A differentiation is made between five main dimensions of the concept of culture that are associated with specific sets of culturalisation ideas and corresponding trans-formations of boundaries around and within the cultural field. This discussion also touches upon the position and role of cultural research itself. Examples are given from five focal areas for these processes: academic work, regional politics, public spaces, history constructions and border struggles.

Abstract [sv]

Kulturstudier är ett ämne där många olika perspektiv på kulturella fenomen i samhället kan mötas. I dagens Sverige är detta tvärvetenskapliga fält livligt och aktivt. I den här boken presenteras aktuella frågor inom den gränsöverskridande forskningen. I överblickar tecknas bilden av kulturforskningens utveckling, såväl globalt som lokalt. Dessutom porträtteras en rad delområden, från undersökningar om urbanitet och intersektionalitet till studier av mode och visuell kultur. Begrepp som kritik och konstruktion sätts under luppen, och kulturstudiernas framtid diskuteras. Boken vänder sig till studenter och forskare på området. Den fungerar både som översiktlig introduktion till vår tids svenska kulturstudier och som fördjupande exemplifiering av hur kulturella fenomen kan förstås.
