Abstract [en]

This paper is based on an on-going case study, drawing on interviews with adult students. The research question is: what narratives of citizenship are actualized in the everyday practices of adult students and how is citizenship enacted (or prevented from being enacted)? More specifically, this paper addresses the importance of interactive media in narratives of citizenship in the everyday practises of adult students. The study builds on 37 interviews with students enrolled at Folk high schools in Sweden. The students have, based on their own definition of the terms, been asked to participate in interviews about (and photo-document) their notions of citizenship and citizenship activities. The results of interest to this paper are statements about what we may refer to as ubiquitous computing (i.e. ever-present media technologies). It would seem that an important basis for students’ notions of citizenship is the practice of ‘living in media’. That is, students’ narratives continuously return to the entanglement of the Internet (and other new media) and notions of citizenship.
