    Communicating Climate Science: A Matter of Credibility: Swedish Farmers' Perceptions of Climate-Change Information2018In: The International Journal of Climate Change, ISSN 1835-7156, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 23-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the climate change communication literature, the concept of framing is increasingly used to discuss various understandings of climate change. This paper addresses the under-researched question of how specific audiences perceive the adequacy of various climate change frames, by exploring how Swedish farmers make sense of climate change information. Based on focus group discussions with farmers, the paper explores what communicators, or frame articulators, Swedish farmers perceive as central and how farmers judge the credibility of potential frame articulators in climate change communication. The paper discusses 1) the credibility of frame articulators as a matter of perceived independence and impartiality, 2) empirical credibility—whether farmers were able to verify the claims underlying climate change frames—as a matter of practical experience versus analytical reasoning, and 3) frame consistency, i.e. whether climate change frames correspond to audience beliefs and claims.

    “Do you believe in climate change?” Swedish farmers’ joint construction of climate perceptions2014Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change has shifted from being regarded as an exclusively physical phenomenon to being a social phenomenon as well, entailing many interpretations and multidimensional frames. This shift calls for an understanding of how various audiences and segments of the public understand climate change. This paper analyses how Swedish farmers perceive climate change and how they jointly shape and construct their understandings. The agricultural sector is of special interest because it both contributes to and is directly affected by climate change impact. Through focus group discussions with Swedish farmers, this study finds that: 1) farmers relate to and understand climate change through their own experience, and 2) climate change is understood either as a natural process subject to little or no human influence or as anthropogenic. The article ends by discussing frame resonance and frame clash in public understandings of climate change, and by comparing potential similarities and differences in how various segments of the public make sense of climate change.

    Framings and coverage of climate change in Swedish specialized farming magazines2013In: Climatic Change, ISSN 0165-0009, E-ISSN 1573-1480, Vol. 117, no 1-2, p. 197-209Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is a fundamental challenge for which agriculture is sensitive and   vulnerable. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has identified relevant information as key to enabling appropriate climate adaptation and mitigation action. Information specifically directed to farmers can be found, for example, in specialized farming magazines.

    While recent studies examine how national news media frame climate change, less —if any —studies have addressed climate framings and coverage in specialized media. Media framings are storylines that provide meaning by communicating how and why an issue should be seen as a problem, how it should be handled, and who is responsible for it. This paper analyses the framings and coverage of climate change in two Swedish specialized farming magazines from 2000 to 2009. It examines the extent of the climate change coverage, the content of the media items, and the dominant framings underlying their climate change coverage. The study identifies: increased coverage of climate change starting in 2007; frequent coverage of agriculture 's contribution to climate change, climate change impacts on agriculture, and consequences of climate politics for agriculture; and four prominent frames: conflict, scientific certainty, economic burden, and action. The paper concludes that climate change communicators addressing farmers and agricultural extension officers should pay attention to how these frames may be interpreted by different target audiences. Research is needed on how specialized media reports on climate-related issues and how science-based climate information is understood  by different groups of farmers and which other factors influence farmers’ engagement in climate mitigation and adaptation.

    ‘Collaborative Competition’: Stance-taking and Positioning in the European Parliament2017Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The European Parliament (EP) is the scene where certain issues concerning over 500 million ‘Europeans’ are publicly debated and where politically relevant groupings are discursively coconstructed. While the Members of the Parliament (MEPs) pursue their political agendas, intergroup boundaries are drawn, reinforced, and/or transgressed. Speakers constantly take stances on behalf of groupings in relation to some presupposed other groupings and argue what differentiates ‘Self’ from ‘Others’. This study examines patterns of language use by the MEPs as they engage in the contextually and historically situated dialogical processes of intergroup positioning and stance-taking. It further focuses on the strategic and competitive activities of grouping, grounding, and alignment in order to reveal the dynamic construction of intergroup boundaries.

    The study is based on a collection of Blue-card question-answer sequences from the plenary debates held at the EP in 2011, when the Sovereign Debt Crisis had been stabilized to some degree but still evoked plenty of controversy.

    Theoretically the study builds on Stance Theory (Du Bois, 2007), Positioning Theory (Davies & Harré, 1990), and several broadly social constructivist approaches to discourse analysis (Fairclough, 1995).

    The analysis shows that intergroup positioning in the EP emerges as what I call a ‘collaborative competition’ between contradictory ideologies and political agendas. The MEPs strategically manipulate their opponents' prior or projected utterances in order to set up positions for self, a grouping he or she stands for, and thereby its adversaries. All participants engage in the maintenance and negotiation of intergroup boundaries, even though the boundaries hardly ever coincide between the different speakers. They discursively fence off some imaginary territories, leaving their adversaries with vague positions.

    When asking Blue-card questions, the MEPs use a particular turn organization, which involves routine forms of interactional units, namely addressing, question framing and question forms, each of which is shown to contribute to stance-taking. A dynamic model of stance-taking is suggested, allowing for a fluid transformation of the stance object as well as the discursively constructed stance-takers.

    While Blue-card questions are meant to serve as a structured procedure for eliciting information from a speaker, the analysis demonstrates that the MEPs accomplish various divergent actions that serve intergroup positioning. The dissertation thus contributes to the understanding of the discursive games played in the EP as the MEPs strive to construct social realities that fit their political ends.

    Barnboksskrivande: - En kvalitativ studie om framställande ochpublicering av barnböcker2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate how a children's book is suggested to be prepared in order to be accepted for publication by a publishing house in Sweden today.

    My questions was first to clarify the concept of a "children's book". Secondly, to understand if there are any guidelines to follow regarding the design and illustration of a children´s book, and how to proceed with the best chances of getting a mauscript published.

    To answer the question, I have chosen to use a qualitative method containing questionnaire items involving eleven Swedish publishers of children's literature.

    My results show that children's books includes all literature that has an target audience of people between 0-18 years of age. The most important thing is that the book's material is appropriate to the target group's level of mental perceptions and emotional competence. The material which then is submitted to the publisher will need to be of the highest quality and the author must investigate a consistent niche in order to submit the material to a publisher.

    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.

    Becoming a personal style blogger: Changing configurations and spatialities of aesthetic labour in the fashion industry2019In: International journal of cultural studies, ISSN 1367-8779, E-ISSN 1460-356X, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 119-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing pervasiveness of social media and digital technology has had a particular impact on the geographies and nature of work in the fashion industry. A new segment of entrepreneurs - fashion bloggers - are utilizing these digital technologies, such as blogs and social media, to transform their personal lives and style into online businesses. This article draws on an in-depth case study analysis of an American personal style fashion blog; tracing its nine-year evolution from an outfit-of-the-day personal style blog, to one that encompasses her entire personal life, including diets, fitness, home decor and pregnancy. By focusing on one blog, we provide an in-depth exploration from its roots as a hobby for personal expression to a means of full-time employment in the fashion industry. Through this examination, emphasis is given to the process of becoming a blogger and the intensification of the ways in which the self is presented and commodified over time. We argue that personal style fashion bloggers provide an illustrative case study, not only for expanding our understanding of aesthetic labour in the digital age, but also highlighting the spaces and temporalities of work that these new formations and engagements of work give rise to. These processes highlight the changing configurations and spatialities of aesthetic labour online.

    Klusterkraft: Filmbranschen i Norrköping och Linköping, en samarbetsindustri?2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Är Norrköping Sveriges nya Hollywood? Ja, åtminstone finns det definitivt en början till ett kreativt kluster kring film, och förutsättningarna finns också för att det ska växa sig ännu starkare. Ett kluster är ett antal företag inom samma fält som befinner sig inom samma geografiska område och samarbetar med varandra för allas vinst. När det handlar om företagande inom konst och kultur kallas det för kreativa kluster. I ett kluster blir företagen inte bara varandras konkurrenter, utan tvärtom drar alla fördel av de samarbeten och den specialisering som utvecklas. Vi har gjort en studie av Norrköping som hem för ett kreativt kluster kring film och jämfört med Linköping. Detta för att se vilka möjligheter och förutsättningar städerna har till att bilda kreativa kluster. Vi belyser också hur ett kreativt kluster uppstår och utvecklas genom att studera produktionsbolag samt nyckelpersoner inom filmbranschen. Vårt huvudfokus i denna studie är att undersöka vad samarbeten inom filmbranschen har för positiva och negativa effekter utifrån en klusterteori. Utöver det utgår vi från frågeställningarna Hur påverkar platsen möjligheterna till samarbeten? Hur påverkar utbildning möjligheterna inom filmbranschen? Vilka komponenter krävs för att ett kreativt kluster ska uppstå och utvecklas? samt Vilka av dessa komponenter finns i Linköping respektive Norrköping? Vi lyfter även filmbranschens utveckling, vilka resurser som finns tillgängliga för filmskapare i respektive stad, men också etableringsfasen och bakgrunden för olika produktionsbolag i regionen. Studien har utförts genom fyra kvalitativa intervjuer med två produktionsbolag, Fishy Minds och FilmVision samt två nyckelpersoner inom filmbranschen i respektive stad, Johan Karlsson (Chef för Cnema och Film i Öst, Norrköping) och Ann-Sofie Löw (Kultursekreterare, Linköping). Utöver det har vi även utfört en enkätundersökning med elva produktionsbolag i Östergötland. Det vi har kommit fram till är att det i Norrköping finns en början till ett kreativt kluster, och att förutsättningarna finns för att det ska frodas. Det börjar nu satsas på film i Linköping mer än vad som tidigare gjorts, men staden ligger långt efter Norrköping och vi ser i dagsläget ingen tendens till ett kreativt filmkluster.

    Making mammograms mobile: Suggestions for a sociology of data mobility2006In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although academic interest in the study of mobilities is on the increase, exactly what it takes and what it means for data to become mobile is seldom asked. This paper addresses that question for the case of digital medical images, more precisely mammograms (X-ray images of the breasts). It is argued that the kind of reasoning which treats mobility as a fixed asset of such images is problematic, because it obscures the particular perceptions, circumstances and practices that play a part in the accomplishment of medical images as mobile. The argument is based on ethnographic involvement with an e-Science/telemedicine research project aimed at demonstrating the benefits of a digital mammography database for breast cancer screening services, epidemiological research and radiology teaching in the UK. By focusing on the ways in which mammograms are re-presented as ‘mobile data’, and on how their movement is practically organized in the context of this project, the paper indicates a new direction for the sociological study of data mobility: one that understands the relationship between ‘data’ and ‘mobility’ as accomplished and emerging rather than fixed and inherent.

    Childhood re-edits: challenging norms and forming lay professional competence on YouTube2015In: Journal of Aesthetics and Culture, ISSN 2000-4214, E-ISSN 2000-4214, Vol. 7Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the initial findings of research into how YouTube culture can become an arena for young YouTube videographers to remodel mainstream, sub-cultural, and media content (YouTube clips, music, film content, and viral memes). We juxtapose analyses from both media and child studies to look at the ways in which preferred images and notions of the “good” and idyllic childhood are re-edited into a possible critique of the prescribed Swedish childhood. Also, we look at ways in which these media-literate actors use YouTube to display their skills in both media editing and social media “savvy.” We discuss how “lay” professional competence in digital culture can be inherent in a friction between popular (children’s) culture and social media production, where simultaneous prowess in both is important for how a mediatised social and cultural critique can emerge.

    A Typographical Primer: Some Basic Conventions2018Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Within academia a central activity is the production of scientific theses and papers, including formal aspects of this activity – learning about typographical conventions, how these can differ between departments, countries, journals and publishers, etc.

    Very often, and sadly, huge amount of of time is spent on this during both thesis supervision and thesis examination. The rationale for this document is to – during supervision and examination – free up time for more focus on thesis content and scientific quality.

    The Primer is not to be regarded as “101 on typographical conventions”. Such books are easy find and/but include many phenomena that can be regarded as “over the top” for the average student BA or MA thesis producer, or indeed PhD students.

    This primer is completely “stimulus-based” and includes things that the author has encountered during years of supervision, examination and conference proceedings editing, and thus covers things that are “battle-proven” when it comes to phenomena that are missed in thesis production.

    In 29 sections phenomena like underlining, dashes, transliteration, filenames, section numbering, tables, figures, plates, margin adjustment and much more are covered. See the Contents listing on page 3.

    At the end a few instructions are included, showing the reader how to implement the covered phenomema in their papers – something which is not always completely transparent or obvious and requires a certain level of word processing knowledge.

    En Typografisk ”Primer”: Några Grundläggande Konventioner2018Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Inom akademika ingår som en central del av produktion av vetenskapliga uppsatser, vilket inkluderar formella aspekter av detta – från att lära sig strikt typografiska konventioner som att lära sig hur dessa kan skilja sig åt mellan avdelningar, länder, tidskrifter.

    Väldigt ofta, och tyvärr, läggs mycket tid på sådan under såväl handledning som examination av uppsatser. Detta dokument har till syfte att, under handledning och examination, frigöra tid för ett mer markerat fokus på innehåll och vetenskaplig kvalitet i de aktuella uppsatserna.

    Primern är inte uppbyggd som en ”grundkurs i typografiska konventioner”. Sådana är lätta att finna och/men inkluderar mycket sådant som kan betraktas som ”överkurs” för studenter som skriver kandidat- eller magisteruppsatser, eller till och med doktorander.

    Denna primer är helt stimulustyrd och inkluderar saker som författaren under åratals handledning, examination och redaktörsskap (för konferensproceedings) har stött så de vanligaste misstagen, och täcker således med eller mindre ”fält-testade” fenomen som missas i uppsatsskrivning.

    I 29 avsnitt täcks företeelser om understrykning, tankstreck, transliterering, filnamnsgivning, kapitelnumrering, tabeller, figurer, bilder, marginaljustering och mycket mer. Se Innehållsförteckning på sidan 3.

    På slutet inkluderas även lite instruktioner för hur man ser till att vissa av de täckta fenomenen blir implementerade i uppsatsen, något som inte alltid är helt solklart utan kräver en viss nivå av ordbehandlingskunskap.

    An Open Source Project for Politics: Visions of Democracy and Citizenship in American Pirate Parties2013In: The Citizen in the 21st Century / [ed] James Arvanitakis & Ingrid Matthews, Oxford: Inter-Disciplinary Press, 2013, p. 201-213Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A political battle is being waged over the use and control of culture and information. While media companies and copyright organisations argue for stricter intellectual property laws, a growing body of citizens and netizens challenge the contemporary Intellectual property-regime. Lately this has resulted in what could be described as a political mobilisation of piracy. This is maybe most evident in the formation of pirate parties that see themselves as a digital civil rights movement defending the public domain and the citizen’s right to privacy against copyright expansionism and increased surveillance. Since the first pirate party was formed in Sweden in 2006, similar parties have spread across the world, from USA to Australia.

    This presentation draws on a study of the culture and ideology of copyright resistance which involves a series of interviews with representatives of pirate parties in USA and Canada. The study looks into what ideas, ideals and aspirations motivate active pirate party members in North America and how this relates to traditional values of a modern, democratic society such as freedom of speech, respect for private property and the public access to culture and information. This presentation focuses particularly on the role of democracy and citizenship in pirate politics. It discusses how the pirate ideology envisions the relationship between the citizen and society in a time when digital technology rapidly and radically changes the conditions for political and social agency and participation. Does a movement that relies so much on global networking and sees the principles of swarm intelligence and open source collaboration as the future of democracy also convey a relationship between the citizen and the state? How would, in that case, such a pirate citizen be defined and situated, and how does it relate to old conceptions of citizenship and existing political institutions?

    In the Company of Ghosts: Hauntology, Ethics, Digital Monsters2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores French philosopher Jacques Derrida’s ’hauntology’ through the lens of digital monsters and feminist theory.

    Hauntology – a pun on ‘ontology’ and ‘haunting’ – offers an ethics based on responsibility towards that which cannot be said to fully exist, yet has an effect on our everyday lives nonetheless. Like the figure of the ghost, such undecidable existences are neither absent nor present, here nor gone, of the past or the future. In other words: they haunt.

    By engaging with hauntology through contemporary stories of digital monsters – such as The Curious Case of Smile.jpg, Welcome to Night Vale and Mushroom Land TV - the thesis discusses how such troubling hauntings might be imagined, and what it means to think an ethics based on responsibility towards the undecidable. In this way, the thesis brings together hauntology and digital media, arguing that thinking with and through the figure of the ghost as well as the digital monster may lead to different and critical ways of imagining both the world and ethics.

    In short, drawing upon feminist theory and creative writing, the thesis maps out a relational ethics of hauntings and internet story-telling.

    'We beg you, let them stay!': Right claims of asylum-seeking children as a socio-political practice2017In: Childhood, ISSN 0907-5682, E-ISSN 1461-7013, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 316-332Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Children’s rights to asylum have emerged as an urgent political challenge. This article uses a number of cases discussed in Sweden’s largest morning paper to analyse claims of asylum-seeking children and how these claims challenge the normative limits of contemporary asylum, concerning what and who ought to be recognized by law. Even though the universality of the child constitutes a running theme, the arguments and the conception of children underpinning the claims are diverse. The article suggests that the claiming of rights as a socio-political practice could be a vital analytical approach to studying children’s rights and offers a much needed alternative to the dominant mainstreaming paradigm.

    The lmoral discourses of post-crisis neoliberalism: a case study of Lithuanias Labour Code reform2017In: Critical Discourse Studies, ISSN 1740-5904, E-ISSN 1740-5912, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 132-149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article problematizes the neoliberal reconfiguration of labour rights in Lithuania, a newer European Union member state, in which the impacts of the global economic and financial crisis were particularly severe and where radical austerity measures were subsequently imposed. Now, after six years, in an attempt to resolve the exhaustion of previous austerity-based solutions for economic recovery, a new Labour Code is being introduced which will further weaken labour protections and labour rights. This article analyses conflicting positions in current debates over Labour Code reform. It attempts to map the mobilization of strategic discursive resources in an unfolding dialogical moral politics of Labour Code reform in the current conjuncture of postcrisis. Theoretically, this article draws upon the seminal work of the early Soviet Marxist scholar V. N. Voloshinov in proposing a dialogical method which foregrounds the interconnections of language, class and ideology.

    Reklam till föräldrar och barn: hur ser den ut?: En studie om utseendet på annonser riktade till barn respektive föräldrar2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Utifrån grunden att reklam för produkter till barn riktas till både barn och föräldrar, har vi undersökt hur tryckta annonser i tidningar som har målgruppen barn respektive föräldrar ser ut. Vi analyserar dessa utifrån innehållsanalys och fokuserar på hur kompositionen i annonserna ser ut. Vad det finns för bilder, symboler och färger, och vad det säger om barn och föräldrar som konsumenter och målgrupp. Reklam som riktas till barn finns inte enbart i barntidningar utan även i föräldratidningar. Därför har vi valt att analysera barntidningar som riktar sig till olika åldrar från liten upp till tonåren, och även föräldratidningar som har specifikt mamma, pappa eller båda som målgrupp. Vi undersöker layout, färg och form i annonserna. Vi tittar även på likheter och skillnader i utformningen utefter om målgruppen är barn eller föräldrar. Det den här studien ska hjälpa till med är alltså att få en inblick i vad det är för reklam som barn och föräldrar stöter på till vardags.

    Mapping Controversies with Social Media: The Case for Symmetry2015In: Social Media + Society, ISSN 2056-3051, E-ISSN 2056-3051, Vol. 1, p. 1-17Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article assesses the usefulness for social media research of controversy analysis, an approach developed in Science and Technology Studies (STS) and related fields. We propose that this approach can help to address an important methodological problem in social media research, namely, the tension between social media as resource for social research and as an empirical object in its own right. Initially developed for analyzing interactions between science, technology, and society, controversy analysis has in recent decades been implemented digitally to study public debates and issues dynamics online. A key feature of controversy analysis as a digital method, we argue, is that it enables a symmetrical approach to the study of media-technological dynamics and issue dynamics. It allows us to pay equal attention to the ways in which a digital platform like Twitter mediates public issues, and to how controversies mediate “social media” as an object of public attention. To sketch the contours of such a symmetrical approach, the article discusses examples from a recent social media research project in which we mapped issues of “privacy” and “surveillance” in the wake of the National Security Agency (NSA) data leak by Edward Snowden in June 2013. Through a discussion of social media research practice, we then outline a symmetrical approach to analyzing controversy with social media. We conclude that the digital implementation of such an approach requires further exchanges between social media researchers and controversy analysts.

    Folkliga Astronauter: En studie om medierepresentation ombord på rymdstationen ISS2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I århundraden har rymden fascinerat människor som sökt efter svar och i modern tid har rymden som populärvetenskapligt medie blivit mer och mer attraktiv. Vi ser långfilmer om rymden som vinner Oscars-statyetter, YouTube-kanaler som är dedikerade till ämnet och astronauter som har hundratusentals följare på sina sociala medier. Det är de sistnämnda astronauterna som studien har tagit intresse i då videoklipp av vardaglig natur börjat dyka upp bland de vanliga forskningsklippen om rymden. Denna studie har till syftar att ta reda på och analysera hur astronauter förmedlar rymden med hjälp av videoklipp om livet på den internationella rymdstationen ISS och hur deras media-personligheter formas till följd av detta. Uppsatsen grundar sig i ett intresse av hur forskare populariserar sin vetenskap genom att förenkla den och göra det lättare för människor att relatera till forskningen. Detta för att allmänheten ska förstå vad den innebär.

    Genom en kvalitativ metod, där analysen av ett urval av de uttagna astronauternas videoklipp fanns som grund, har ämnet granskats för att ta reda på om detta vardagliggörande av livet i rymden är ett nytt media-fenomen och huruvida det finns tydliga sätt att förmedla detta liv till allmänheten.

    Resultatet av studien visar på att astronauterna i sina YouTube filmer försöker uppvisa sig som vanliga människor, detta för att tittaren ska känna igen sig och identifiera sig med dem. I själva verket är rymdresenärerna väldigt långt ifrån vardagliga människor i sitt arbete vilket innebär att den här vardagliga fasaden skapats för att allmänhetens stöd och intresse ska finnas där jämtemot rymdorganisationerna och astronauternas verksamhet.

    Nationalization and Mediatized Ritualization: The Broadcast Farewell of Fadime Sahindal2012In: Emotion, Identity & Death: Mortality Across Disciplines / [ed] Douglas James Davies; Chang-Won Park, Farnham, Surrey: Ashgate, 2012, 1, p. 29-41Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Death affects all aspects of life, it touches our emotions and influences our identity. Presenting a kaleidoscope of informative views of death, dying and human response, this book reveals how different disciplines contribute to understanding the theme of death. Drawing together new and established scholars, this is the first book among the studies of emotion that focuses on issues surrounding death, and the first among death studies which focuses on the issue of emotion. Themes explored include: themes of grief in the ties that bind the living and the dead, funerals, public memorials and the art of consolation, obituaries and issues of war and death-row, use of the internet in dying and grieving, what people do with cremated remains, new rituals of spiritual care in medical contexts, themes bounded and expressed through music, and more.

    Kurir 2.0: Om små företags inställning till Internet som marknadsföringskanal2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det dröjde inte länge efter det att Internet blev något som plötsligt fanns i var mans hushåll förrän företag började inse möjligheter med att använda fenomenet som en ny kanal för marknadsföring. Ju fler människor som fick tillgång till Internet, desto fler företag insåg möjligheterna, och det utvecklades många idéer, program och funktioner som kunde hjälpa företag och organisationer att marknadsföra sina produkter och tjänster på Internet.

    ¨Från början tog Internetbaserad marknadsföring mycket inspiration från den som redan fanns i traditionella medier. Hemsidor kunde liknas vid informationsblad eller anslagstavlor, sponsorannonser i marginalen påminde om hederliga tidningsannonser, pop-ups som reklamavbrott i vardagen, exempelvis i TV-program, och spam-mail upplevdes på samma sätt som reklam i brevlådan.

    Den del av den ständiga tekniska utvecklingen som involverar hela samhället och anpassas så att alla ska ha möjlighet att ta del av utvecklingen är kanske som allra mest påtaglig på Internet. Eftersom våra relationer till Internet hela tiden utvecklas parallellt med den tekniska utvecklingen samtidigt som vi spenderar mer och mer tid där måste företag ställa sig frågan om vilken inställning de ska ha till marknadsföring på webben. Så gott som alla programmerare av webbläsare och mailtjänster har till exempel tagit fram filter mot pop-ups och spam-mail, vilket gör att den typen av marknadsföring kan vara onödig att lägga pengar och tid på idag.

    Genom Internets historia har det ständigt utvecklats nya verktyg och metoder som företag har tagit hjälp av för att marknadsföra sig på Internet, och varje företag har sina åsikter om huruvida de vill använda sig av något av dem, hur de går till väga och varför de vill använda specifika verktyg med utgångspunkt i målgrupp och önskade resultat. Gränsen mellan vilka olika verktyg som är riktade till gemene man och företag är inte alls särskilt påtaglig längre, och gränsen mellan företag och konsumenter på Internet suddas ut mer och mer. De olika verktyg, tjänster och möjligheter till social kommunikation som idag finns på Internet kan underlätta för företag att komma närmre sina konsumenter och vice versa, men det finns en skillnad gentemot den Internetmarknadsföring som påminner om den som förekommer i traditionell media. Alla de olika verktyg och kanaler som finns är inte anpassade eller utvecklade bara för eller av företag, och absolut inte för en specifik sorts företag. Därför ser man ofta en skillnad i vilka företag som använder sig av de olika verktygen, vilket kan vara baserat på vilken typ av målgrupp de har, företagets storlek, vinstintressen och ytterligare faktorer.

    När det gäller mindre företag med ett fåtal anställda kan situationen upplevas som annorlunda jämfört med större företag och konglomerat. Möjligheter till kundkontakt som inte behöver gå igenom support utan kan där kommunikationen kan gå direkt mellan företagsledning och kund är något som små företag kan dra nytta av. Samtidigt är det inte säkert att dessa företag har lika stor möjlighet att lägga tid och pengar på marknadsföring i jämförelse med större företag, och det kan vara svårare att slå sig fram bland eventuella branschgrannar. Även att ha möjlighet och tid att träffa sina kunder kan vara svårt om företaget har en stor kundkrets men få anställda. I vår uppsats har vi valt att fokusera på mindre företag för att komma åt både ledningens och de marknadsföringsansvarigas åsikter samtidigt, eftersom samma person ofta är ansvarig för och arbetar med bådadera. Trots dessa likheter skiljer sig företagen mycket åt, inte bara när det gäller inställning till de möjligheter som Internet skapar, utan även kundkretsen och produkterna/tjänsterna företagen erbjuder. I samtliga fall har intervjupersonen både suttit i styrelsen och varit marknadsföringsansvarig.

    Webbutikerna Tailor Store och Bygghemma har gemensamt att de är helt och hållet webbaserade och intervjupersonerna för respektive företag, Jan och Ola, som båda är marknadsföringsansvariga, har inte varit ensamma ägare av företaget. Båda butikerna säljer ”konkreta” produkter (kläder och byggvaror) men har aldrig någon egentlig fysisk direktkontakt med sin kundkrets. Reklambyrån Angry Creative ägs av intervjupersonen Jimmy, och både han och hans partner arbetar med affärer och marknadsföring på i stort sett samma villkor. De har inte heller några ytterligare anställda. Tjänsterna de erbjuder är främst hemsidor, och vid affärer sker oftast direkta möten med kunden. Restaurangen Pannkaksladan ägs i stort sett enskilt av Ulrika som sköter så gott som all marknadsföring, och inga affärer sker över Internet. Serveringspersonalen, och i många fall Ulrika, har alltid direktkontakt med kunden. Det intervjuade företag som kanske skiljer sig mest åt är nyhetssidan Rakaka, som är den enda som inte direkt erbjuder tjänster eller produkter mot monetärt utbyte från kunden. Intervjupersonen Shahin är chefredaktör och marknadsföringsansvarig, och varken han eller någon annan anställd har någon direkt kundkontakt bortsett från vid enstaka event.

    Utgångspunkten i vår tidigare research kring nationella identiteter/social samhörighet och varumärkesuppbyggnad i en kombination med våra ursprungliga idéer till kandidatprojekt; en målgruppsbaserad informationsfilm och ett bloggprojekt i marknadsföringssyfte, är de övergripande faktorer som påverkat vårt val av uppsatsområde. Temat utgår från grunden i ett intresse kring hur företag kan nå fram till sin målgrupp, och hur de ställer sig till nya möjligheter att utveckla kommunikationen mellan företag och konsument.

    Digital Intimacies: Doing Digital Media Differently2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Digital media have become an integral part of many people’s everyday lives and constitute an intimate presence therein. Utilizing the concept of digital intimacy to focus on these recent developments, this doctoral dissertation takes the perspectives of feminist cultural studies and affect theory to analyze how digital media are becoming more intimate and how in turn intimacy is remediated within digital cultures.

    This research brings together three different strategic examples of digital intimacy. The first is chosen from the context of online hate and harassment, and works to counteract digital forms of intimidation. The second is from the world of software development training initiatives tailored for women and designed to make them digitally intimate. The third investigates the digital subculture around ASMR (‘autonomous sensory meridian response’), which is an intimate multi-sensory stimulation induced by such things as online video clips.

    It is argued that these three initiatives are good illustrations of contemporary gender relations in digital cultures, and also do digital media differently. This  means that they develop and apply sometimes straightforward, sometimes rather playful strategies to counteract gender-based inimicalities (such as forms of discrimination or exclusion, or objectification) within digital cultures. The thesis argues that such digitally intimate strategies can be utilized analytically in order to contribute to contemporary feminist internet politics.

    En bild och tusen ord: Instagram som plattform för politisk aktivism2017In: Manifest: 22 texter om humaniora och politisk handling / [ed] Meri Alarcón, Matilda Amundsen Bergström och Tania Kaveh, Göteborg: LIR.skrifter, 2017, p. 55-61Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Intresset i den här texten ligger på sociala medier som en möjlighet för bredare meningsfull interaktion, och som ett sätt att synliggöra den sammanhållning som kan skapas genom ideologisk eller politiskt motiverad interaktion. Här handlar det inte om att synliggöra sin aktivism för andra utan snarare om att hitta styrka i liksinnade och använda sociala medier som en plats för samhörighet. Vi tittar på instagram som plattform för feministisk aktivism och kopplar det bland annat till Carol Hanish text "The personal is political".

    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 [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.

    ”Strike a Pose”: En uppsats om omtalade omslag2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats behandlar åtta olika tidningsomslag som har varit omtalade i media under de senaste trettio åren. Dessa omslag kommer från de kända mode- och livsstilsmagasinen Vogue, Vogue Italia, och GQ. Omslagen analyseras utifrån ett feministiskt bildperspektiv, med semiotisk och ikonografisk bildanalys som analysmetoder för att svara på vår huvudfrågeställning; vad gestaltar omslagen utifrån ett feministiskt perspektiv, då man andvänder semiotik och ikonografi som analysmetoder? Som en vidareutveckling av till den feministiska analysen har vi även studerat vad som sagts om omslagen i olika medier.
