    Strukturerade sysselsättningar och fria aktiviteter vid HVB-hem: En intervjustudie om ensamkommande flyktingbarns sysselsättningar vid HVB-hem ur personalens perspektiv2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    De ensamkommande flyktingbarnen som kommer till mottagarlandet hamnar oftast på HVB-hem, inspektionen för vård och omsorg, där de får bo tills de är självständiga nog att flytta därifrån till ett eget boende. Studiens syfte är att studera hur personal på HVB-hem för ensamkommande flyktingbarn arbetar med barnens fritid. Främst för att se hur personalen arbetar  i relation till frågor som rör barns delaktighet i samband med strukturerade aktiviteter jämfört med barnens egna val av sysselsättningar. Vi har genomfört tio semistrukturerade intervjuer med personal som arbetar på HVB-hem. Utifrån personalens utsagor  så kan vi konstatera att grunden till barnens delaktighet är att personalen ska utgå ifrån varje barns enskilda behov.

    Lillan är ingen vanlig flicka: En semiotisk analys av genusframställan i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 20072009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 25 credits / 37,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats undersöker hur genus skapas och iscensätts i Sveriges Televisions julkalendrar 1996 och 2007 samt om det skett någon förändring över tid vad gäller skapandet och framställandet. Detta undersöks genom en semiotisk analys samt med queerteori som teoretisk utgångspunkt. Undersökningen visar att julkalendrarna i många fall bidrar till ett vidmakthållande av stereotypa könsroller. Man kan dock urskilja en förändring mellan de båda kalendrarna då den senast sända ger ett intryck av att producenten gjort medvetna val för att undvika ett reproducerande av könsstereotyperna.

    Det ekte, det gode og det coole: Södra teatern og den dialogiske formasjonen av mangfoldsdiskursen2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis analyses the continuously changing discourse of cultural diversity. The focus of this study is the ways in which this discourse is shaped within contemporary Swedish cultural politics in general, and how it unfolds and further changes through the specific activities performed by a cultural institution in Stockholm – Södra teatern.

    Where as the cultural diversity inspired cultural politics seems to be caught in the tension between defending the autonomous position of culture in society and arguing for the supposed positive integrative consequences of such a perspective the Södra teatern mirrors a similar complexity in their ways of performing cultural diversity. This complexity is expressed through the three aspects of cultural diversity the thesis analyses – the real, the good and the cool cultural diversity. Each of the three aspects expresses a search for authenticity as well as a resistance towards the very same notion; a belief in the enlightenment of knowledge at the same time as the content of the very same knowledge is questioned; and finally that ethnic differences some times is enforced through utterances that stresses tradition where as the supposed hybrid forms in other situations is celebrated.

    The three aspects of cultural diversity analysed here all express how cultural diversity works as a hyper complex concept within cultural policy where no single possible meaning erases other potential meanings. On the contrary: different and even contradictory meanings of the concept exist side by side. Thus the thesis argues that the discourse of cultural diversity expresses a hyper complex problem.

    En kvalitativ studie i användarcentrerad webbdesign2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis considers a qualitative study in how info structure and graphical design collaborate to form a usercentredweb site. The aim was to produce guidelines for how to build user-centred web sites. The results from thestudy are built on qualitative interviews, user tests with the target group and expert evaluation.

    The study has shown that the most important thing for creating user-centred web sites is to continuously involve thetarget group in the development process. This should be done through interviews and user tests. The level ofusability determines how the target group experience both the company and their web site.

    Museum Policies in Europe 1990 – 2010: Negotiating Professional and Political Utopia2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This EuNaMus report studies how nations develop policy in order to deploy national museums in the redefinition of the national vision. Considering museums as utopian institutions, it focusses on the negotiations between politicians and museum professionals in Europe from 1990-2010. In-depth case studies are presented from France, Norway, Estonia, Hungary and Greece, in order to examine the broad range of change occurring throughout Europe. The report also examines the EU as a new actor in these museum negotiations. The findings indicate that museums have responded to differing circumstances using five broad policy making techniques to engage in national redefinition: re-formulation, re-narration, re-mediation, re-organisation and re-professionalization. The report suggests that national and transnational narratives coexist uneasily in national museums due in large part to three competing utopian visions articulated by Europe’s various policymakers: EUtopia, Multicultural Utopia, and National Historical Utopia. How museums can balance these visions is a key issue for these institutions in the years to come.

    The report is produced within the three-year research programme, EuNaMus – European National Museums: Identity Politics, the Uses of the Past and the European Citizen, coordinated at Tema Q at Linköping University (www.eunamus.eu). EuNaMus explores the creation and power of the heritage created and presented at European national museums to the world, Europe and its states, as an unsurpassable institution in contemporary society. National museums are defined and explored as processes of institutionalized negotiations where material collections and displays make claims and are recognized as articulating and representing national values and realities. Questions asked in the project are why, by whom, when, with what material, with what result and future possibilities are these museums shaped.

    Konstnärer och ingenjörer i samarbete2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna uppsats vill beskriva två olika typer av konst- och vetenskapsorganisationer som sammanför konstnärer och vetenskapsmän. Olika händelser från dessa organisationer beskrivs dels för att verksamheten har varit banbrytande av olika slag. Dels innebär verksamheten någonting nytt på i alla fall i organiserad form. Det andra är att ställa E.A.T. och ASCI mot den linjära spridningsmodellen. Vad innebär tillkomsten av organisationer som E.A.T. för den linjära spridningsmodellen? Det som framkommer är att dessa två organisationer avviker från den linjära spridningsmodellen då konstnärer skapar och/eller förmedlar vetenskap istället för skapande vetenskapsmän och förmedlande journalister.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ett fenomen som drabbat vår institution – och inte bara vår – på senare tid är att en allt större del av studenterna mer eller mindre kommer direkt från gymnasiet och således saknar universitetsvana. Detta ställer vissa, och delvis andra, krav på undervisningen än vad som tidigare var fallet, och jag skall här kortfattat redogöra för hur vi försökt anpassa oss till denna nya situation. Dessutom skall jag nämna ett par av mina egna ’knep’.

    An acoustic analysis of ‘kulning’ (cattle calls) recorded in an outdoor setting on location in Dalarna (Sweden)2015In: Proceedings of ICPhS 2015, Glasgow, Scotland, UK: International Phonetic Association , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish cattle call singing style ‘kulning’ issurprisingly understudied, despite its almostmythical status in Swedish folklore. While somephysiological-productive aspects of kulning havebeen treated in previous work, acoustic propertiesare still much lacking description. This paper addsto and extends the results presented in a previousstudy [7], where kulning and head voice (“falsetto”)was acoustically analysed in two indoor settings:a normal room and an anechoic chamber. In thepresent study, the same singer, singing the samekulning in the same two modes (kulning and headvoice), was recorded in an outdoor setting (close tothe singer’s home), thus allowing for a comparisonbetween “clinical” and more ecologically valid data.

    Exhibiting disasters: Mediation, historicity and spectatorship2012In: Media Culture and Society, ISSN 0163-4437, E-ISSN 1460-3675, Vol. 34, no 4, p. 472-487Article in journal (Refereed)
    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 2th 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.

    Konst. Stigma. Identitet.: - En inblick i tatueringskulturen.2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     Tattoos over time and continents – as art, stigma and identity explores by a litterature study  the cultural significance of tattoos’s throughout history.

     Tattooing has been practiced by mankind all over the world for thousands of years and evidence also suggests that tattooing was practiced in ancient Greece and in Rome. Many different cultures have used tattooing for a wide variety of reasons and given the tattoos their great cultural and social meaning. Tattoos have been used to mark prisoners, slaves and other stigmatisiced groups, but also as a sign of status and a mark of identity and heritage. Is it possible to find similarities in different tattoocultures, presented in literature, despite differences in both time and place?

     This thesis also explores how tattoos are presented in the field of popular culture today by analyzing two reality-shows: Miami Ink and LA Ink.  The thesis seeks to investigate if some of the ways tattoos have been presented in history can be seen in the way they are presented in popular culture today. The thesis analyses how the tattoos, the tattoo artists and their clients are portrayed in popular culture in order to investigate how tattoos are seen today.

    Under ytan: En praktisk och kunskapsteoretisk undersökning om att synliggöra det osynliga2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report presents the process and results of my bachelor thesis at Carl Malmsten Furniture Studies. With my journeyman's test  as a starting point, I examined how the hidden craft underneath the surface of a traditional upholstered furniture can be made visible. The investigation has resulted in a describing text - from wooden body to upholstered furniture. My focus has been to answer the questions of what and especially why, rather than how you do something. I have searched formulations, words, representative illustrations and pictures to convey the intangible value and the tacit knowledge that is embedded in a traditional handmade furniture. The answer to question why gives us answers for the benefits of an act, and conveys the meaning and importance of tacit knowledge, which is knowledge that even a person without insight of the craftsmanship can comprehend.  

    With a epistemological (the theory of knowledge) background, I have examined the concept of knowledge and the dissemination of knowledge, which is the basis for this work. I have studied how different types of knowledge through history has been defined and measured differently, and what consequences it has had for the development of handicraft. I have also searched theoretical support that emphasizes the meaning of documenting and communicating tacit knowledge. 

    In each piece of furniture that an upholsterer restore, there is a cultural history to find, and it is through that history we learn our craftsmanship. Therefore, the work of a upholsterer is not just about craft itself, it also helps to strengthen the intangible cultural heritage and the survival of a traditional craft. For that reason I have written a historical background that describes the development of Swedish upholstery traditions and how it has evolved over time. As with the description of the work of my journeyman's test, I have particularly focused on searching for answers to the questions of why - the underlying reason whya material or technology came into use.

    Skrivet i stickningen: Om social status i stickbeskrivningar från 1838 till 18452018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsen undersökte handstickningens sociala status under åren 1838–1845 via stickhandböcker som publicerades kring de brittiska öarna under den nämnda tiden. Studien har genomförts med en kvalitativ textanalys av totalt 5 olika stickböcker och författare. Syftet var att utröna stickningens sociala status med hjälp av stickböckernas tilltänkta målgrupp, författarnas egna noteringar om stickningen, stickbeskrivningarnas inriktning och materialanvändningen för framförandet av stickbeskrivningarna. Resultatet blev att handböckerna riktade sig till de övre klasserna av samhället och framförallt var målgruppen för böckerna kvinnor. Materialanvändningen i handböckerna visade till största del på exklusiva material och stickbeskrivningar var ofta dekorativa. Stickningen blev klassat högt i status under tiden, inom den kvinnliga sfären, då utförandet av tekniken sågs som en fritidssysselsättning och ansågs som ett värdigt utförande för damer.

    På plats i historien: Studier av hembygsföreningar på 2000-talet2008Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Local heritage societies were established in Sweden for about a hundred years ago. The societies responded to the large changes of industrialisation, emigration and urbanisation during that time. Today there are about 2 000 societies with almost half a million members altogether. Why do people turn to local heritage societies today? The image of them, associated with folklore costumes and quaint old cottages, is not consistent with the extensive activity in the 21st century. That raises questions that have not been clarified in previous research. The aim of this thesis is to find out what today's local heritage societies do, as well as to investigate what their meanings are for people and the local society. Thereby the intention is to contribute to an understanding of their present extent and endurance over time.

    The activities of three local heritage societies in and around the city of Linköping are mapped out in this thesis. The survey shows extensive and very broad activities that are well adjusted to present time. The traditional image has become rigid, but in parts it is accurate since the activities are still dominated by local use of history., which also contributes to their extent and continuity. Place and history as common ground is something universal: The need for people to be oriented in time and space contributes to the persistence of the local heritage societies. At the same time there seems to be something strong in society today which contributes to their extent.

    The thesis shows that the societies can have knowledge-generating, ideological, existential and social meaning. Through the local heritage society people can learn about, evaluate and gain feelings for the place. The society also contributes to strengthening the power of togetherness in the local community as a part of the civilian society. The multifaceted meaning of the activities makes it possible for the societies to keep or even strengthen their attraction, especially among the large group of retired people.

    A voice of her own? Echos own echo2015In: Continental philosophy review, ISSN 1387-2842, E-ISSN 1573-0611, Vol. 48, no 1, p. 59-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches Ovids story of Echo and Narcissus in the Metamorphoses through some of Maurice Merleau-Pontys writings on expression and speech. Echos speech as portrayed by Ovid clearly illustrates how Merleau-Ponty describes speech in Phenomenology of Perception as a "paradoxical operation" through which we use words with already given sense and in that very process both stabilize and alter established meaning. Instead of reducing Echo to a moment of the identity and fate of Narcissus, I bring out Echos own voice and the expression of her subjectivity through creative repetition. The short dialogue between Echo and Narcissus makes manifest that Echos words cannot be reduced to a simple repetition of a clear and distinct original. Rather, her speech emerges in relation to an original that is only made present as an original of a repetition in that very repetition. Echos voice is disruption of the words she repeats and each repetition is also its own origin. Echos own voice is only made present when we listen to it as something other than a simple repetition of the voice of Narcissus. The fragments she returns through her echo, lose their fragmented character through modifying and altering their already given meaning. What Echo lacks is not primarily a voice of her own but rather an unbound origin which by itself remains mute and thereby runs the risk of not expressing anything at all. Echo is repetition but it is precisely as repetition that she is also originating speech.

    Dimensions of Pain: Humanities and Social Science Perspectives2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Pain research is still dominated by biomedical perspectives and the need to articulate pain in ways other than those offered by evidence based medical models is pressing. Examining closely subjective experiences of pain, this book explores the way in which pain is situated, communicated and formed in a larger cultural and social context.

    Dimensions of Pain

    explores the lived experience of pain, and questions of identity and pain, from a range of different disciplinary perspectives within the humanities and social sciences. Discussing the acuity and temporality of pain, its isolating impact, the embodied expression of pain, pain and sexuality, gender and ethnicity, it also includes a cluster of three chapters discusses the phenomenon and experience of labour pains.

    This volume revitalizes the study of pain, offering productive ways of carefully thinking through its different aspects and exploring the positive and enriching side of world-forming pain as well as its limiting aspects. It will be of interest to academics and students interested in pain from a range of backgrounds, including philosophy, sociology, nursing, midwifery, medicine and gender studies.

    Bodily Relational Autonomy2014In: Journal of consciousness studies, ISSN 1355-8250, E-ISSN 2051-2201, Vol. 21, no 9-10, p. 100-120Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Conceptions of autonomy in western philosophy and ethics have often centred on self-governance and self-determination. However, a growing bulk of literature also questions such conceptions, including the understanding of the autonomous self as a self-governing independent individual that chooses, acts, and lives in accordance with her or his own values, norms, or sense of sell This article contributes to the critical interrogation of selfhood, autonomy, and autonomous decision making by combining a feminist focus on relational dimensions of selfhood and autonomy with phenomenological philosophy of the embodied self as being-in-the-world. It offers a philosophical investigation of different dimensions of bodily relational autonomy by turning to phenomenological accounts of the lived body as self-reflexive. When so doing, we hope to contribute to bridging the gap that sometimes exists between discussions of autonomy in analytic moral philosophy and of freedom and facticity in phenomenological philosophy. We see this gap as unfortunate, and hold that a nuanced understanding of autonomy and autonomous decision making can be reached if these strands of philosophy are brought into dialogue.

    Advancing Cultural Studies: Report from an international workshop at Södertörn Conference Center, Lidingö near Stockholm, 4-5 February, 19991999Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In modernity, culture is everywhere. So is cultural studies, it seems. But cultural studies needs to be advanced, in two senses: to be promoted but also to be ameliorated. Culture is focal in late  modern societies, and should be so in research. New encounters and innovative modes of study are necessary to deal with the new kinds of problems posed by current cultural developments. The international and interdisciplinary field of cultural studies well deserves to be spread, but also longs for regenerative initiatives. There is now in Sweden an option to take a decisive step in this direction.

    This is what this report argues for.

    ACSIS Jubileumsrapport: De första tio åren 2002-20122012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det är i år 10 år sedan ACSIS började sin verksamhet efter några års förarbeten. Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden inrättades våren 2002 som en särskild arbetsenhet inom Linköpings universitet – ett självständigt nationellt centrum med anknytningsavtal till Institutionen för samhällsutveckling och kultur och som under hela den här tioårsperioden varit samlokaliserat med Tema kultur och samhälle. Den här skriften ger en överblick av vad ACSIS har varit under det här decenniet.

    ACSIS inrättades i syfte att utveckla spetsforskning och högre utbildning inom tvärvetenskaplig kulturforskning. ACSIS har utvecklat kontakter och verksamheter i alla universitetsstäder som en länkande, drivande och kvalitetshöjande motor och mötesplats för kulturstudier i Sverige, ett vitalt forskningsfällt som har den spänningsfyllda triangeln mening - identitet - makt som ett viktigt nav. Sådana kulturstudier förekommer inom snart sagt alla områden – inte som någon avgränsad disciplin utan som ett tvärvetenskapligt fält, där nya fenomen, metoder och teorier utprövas i gränsområdena mellan etablerade ämnen och traditioner. Det som förenar är strävan att undersöka aktuella frågor om mening, identitet och makt genom kontextualiserande tolkningar, överskridande dialoger och reflexiv kritik.

    ACSIS har verkat för att "avancera" kulturstudierna, alltså föra ut dem och stärka deras positioner, bistå med kommunikativa och teoriutvecklande resurser, och samtidigt höja kvaliteten på de tvärvetenskapliga ansatser som idag finns utspridda över landet. ACSIS bildar länkar mellan olika ämnen och traditioner som annars sällan har kontakt, men som måste samverka för att aktuella samhällsproblem och kulturprocesser ska kunna hanteras. ACSIS öppnar också kanaler mellan orter som annars riskerar att isoleras från varandra i defensiv konkurrens. ACSIS är således självt ett gränslandsprojekt, som med nya grepp utforskar kulturens gränsländer och samtidigt öppnar gränspassager för kulturstudierna.

    Ett tioårsjubileum är ett lämpligt tillfälle att blicka både tillbaka på vad som har åstadkommits under åren och framåt genom att fundera på hur verksamheten kan utvecklas i framtiden. Jubileet sammanfaller också med flera förändringar: byte av föreståndare, avslutning av det stora STINT-utbytet med University of Western Sydney och flytt till nya lokaler. Om den här skriften står för tillbakablickandet kan det förhoppningsvis bli gott om möjligheter att se framåt under de aktiviteter som ACSIS genomför i samband med jubileet. Förutsättningarna är mycket goda för ett nytt, framgångsrikt kapitel i ACSIS och den svenska kulturforskningens historia.

    Abstract [en]

    We are proud to present the fifth volume of Culture Unbound: Journal of Current Cultural Research. This time we have some important news to share. First, the journal’s scholarly success has been financially rewarded, in that Culture Unbound has received two different publishing grants: one from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) and the other from the Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS-HS). Together these two grants cover most of the costs for Martin Fredriksson’s work as executive editor, which forms the core of our rather minimal costs. The remaining expenses are covered by our three collaborating host institutions at Linköping University: the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS), the Department of Culture Studies (Tema Q) and the Swedish Cultural Policy Research Observatory (SweCult).

    Fem essäer om rätt och kommunikation2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Kommunikation och rätt är ett ständigt aktuellt ämnesområde i såväl den vardagliga som den offentliga debatten och det är ett ämne där många har mycket bestämda synpunkter. Det kan exempelvis gälla frågor om vad man får och inte får säga i vissa rättsliga, politiska eller sociala sammanhang, hur man får säga vissa saker och framförallt hur man inte får säga dessa, samt frågor om vem eller vilka som har rätt att uttrycka någonting överhuvudtaget. Det handlar om rätten till det egna uttrycket och om normer för kommunikation men även om hur normer för interaktion i allmänhet kommuniceras. Inte minst syns detta intresse inom populärkulturen med det massiva publikstöd som finns för nästan allting som har med kriminalitet och rätt att göra, vare sig det tar formen av litteratur, film och TV eller dataspel. I denna samling essäer adresseras flera av dessa frågor på ett teoretiskt och empiriskt sätt. De teorier som berörs sträcker sig från Austin och talaktsteorin, till Bourdieu, Foucault och vidare till Lévinas. De empiriska områden som behandlas är olika situationer där paradoxer lyfts fram: t ex rättsliga situationer där ord står mot ord eller politiska situationer där man kan fråga sig rättvisan i att använda vissa ord. Den tänkta publiken för denna bok är människor som i sina studier, sin forskning eller i sin yrkesutövning kommer i kontakt med frågor om kommunikation och rätt och som vill ta del av några aktuella teoretiska och empiriska reflektioner. Essäerna presenterar inte forskningsresultat i den meningen att de leder till konkreta slutsatser och handfasta råd om hur man bör göra i vissa situationer, utan syftar snarare till att gå in i några olika debatter för att ställa frågor, presentera tolkningar och utveckla vilka problem som aktualiseras i dem. Värdet av ett sådant tillvägagångssätt blir troligen tydligast för den som vill bilda sig och fördjupa sin kunskap inom området.

    Ett stort evenemang - En liten stad: Synen på Vätternrundan genom fem representanter2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Vätternrundan is an annual sporting event that takes place in the Swedish town Motala since 1966. It is one of the world largest recreational bicycle rides and attracts over 20 000 participants each year. This study focuses on event effects and how an event can be of value within the principles of place marketing. Within this study five representatives were interviewed with semi-structured interviews.

    The results show that the representatives describe Vätternrundan as a positive event which mostly generates positive effects for the city itself and for the people living and working there. The effects consist of the events ability to create awareness of the place, the possibility to extend the tourism season and several social effects like solidarity and interaction.

    The result also shows that Vätternrundan is a well-known brand and because of this it can be used as an advantage in place marketing. The event also provides the place with an activity and a reason to travel there. The combination of the long sporting history in Motala and the sporting event Vätternrundan also provide Motala with a chance to differentiate themselves in relation to other places where sport is a unique part of the city.

    Authors, Inventors and Entrepreneurs: Intellectual Property and Actors of Extraction2018In: Open Cultural Studies, ISSN 2451-3474, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 319-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The ideas and ideals of authorship and the discourse on property rights that emerged in parallelsince the 18th century have come to form the bedrock of copyright law. Critical copyright scholars arguethat this construction of authorship and ownership contributes to individualisation and privatisationof artistic works that disregards the collective aspects of creativity. It also embodies a certain kind ofauthorial character—or “author function” as Michel Foucault puts it—imbued with racial and genderedpowers and privileges. While the gendered and racialised biases of intellectual property rights are welldocumented within copyright research, the commodification of ideas and cultural expressions relies onindividualisation of creativity that is significant not only to the cultural economy but also to the 20th-centurynotion of the entrepreneur as the protagonist of capitalism. This article relates the idea of the entrepreneurto the deconstruction of authorship that was initiated by Foucault and Roland Barthes in the late 1960s,and the critique of an author-centred IPR regime developed by law scholars in the 1990s. It asks if and howthe deconstruction of the author as a cultural and ideological persona that underpins the privatisationof immaterial resources can help us understand the construction and function of the entrepreneur inextractive capitalism.

    Between Intellectual and Cultural Property: Myths of Authorship and Common Heritage in the Protection of Traditional Cultural Expression2019In: Cultural Analysis, ISSN 1537-7873, E-ISSN 1537-7873, Vol. 17, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1970s international law has tried to provide protection for traditional knowledge (TK) and traditional cultural expressions (TCEs). Academics, activists and policymakers have discussed how to apply a legal framework based on Western norms of authorship on various forms of creativity that exist in different traditional communities. While aiming to acknowledge indigenous rights, this discourse also reflects assumptions and distinctions regarding differences between indigenous and non-indigenous cultures, relating to concepts of commons as well as individual and collective authorship. Here certain norms of cultural creativity are taken for granted, not only with regards to indigenous cultures but also regarding a Western cultural heritage. This article questions these assumptions by analyzing international legislation regarding the protection of TCEs and comparing them to the articulation of creativity and cultural entitlements in European cultural and legal discourses. It takes a particular paragraph in the Swedish copyright law, regarding the so called “protection of classics”, as a case study to discuss the inconsistencies between individual authorship and collective cultural entitlements within Western copyright law. Eventually it takes a decolonizing perspective on dichotomies between concepts such as: Western/non-Western; modern/traditional; authored/non-authored and intellectual property/cultural property.

    Copyright Culture and Pirate Politics2014In: Cultural Studies, ISSN 0950-2386, E-ISSN 1466-4348, Vol. 28, no 5-6, p. 1022-1047Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches the recent debates about copyright and piracy from a cultural and historical perspective, discussing how problems surrounding intellectual property rights (IPR) reflect cultural conflicts that are central to cultural studies. It sets out with a study of how international copyright norms developed in nineteenth-century Europe were implemented in two different national contexts: Sweden and the USA. This historical background shows how copyright has been embedded in the cultural history of Europe and intertwined with the idea of an evolving Western civilization. The examples from the past are thus used to highlight the underlying cultural implications that affect the contemporary discussions. Particular interest is paid to how the historical association between the spread of copyright and the development of civilization affects the understanding of Asian piracy and Western file sharing today, and how a multitude of social movements both in the West and the Third World simultaneously challenge the cultural legitimacy of the current system of IPR. Eventually this is also taken as an example of how law and culture intersect and how the broad, interdisciplinary field of copyright studies that has emerged over the last decade can be seen as an extension of the cultural studies tradition.

    Current Issues in European Cultural Studies, ACSIS Conference 2011, Norrköping, 15–17 June: Abstracts2011Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We proudly present the programme of our international conference ‘Current Issues in European Cultural Studies’! The conference is arranged by the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS) which is a national centre for interdisciplinary and international networking in the !eld of cultural studies (www.acsis.liu.se). ACSIS has a wide range of activities, including the large biannual conference on cultural research that we have arranged since 2005. The great response to our !rst international conference ‘INTER’, in 2007 convinced us of the need for continuing to bring di#erent regions and thematic areas together on an international scale.

    This is why we have given the 2011 conference a broad European scope. Each of its plenary sessions focuses on a particular set of current issues, dimensions and perspectives for interdisciplinary, critical and cultural research in Europe. Our intention is to point at tensions and contradictions that together serve to map key contemporary directions in this complex !eld.

    What does Europe mean to cultural researchers today? How is cultural studies de!ned and how does it thrive or su#er in di#erent countries? What threats, challenges and opportunities are pivotal for us in the 2010s? The last plenary sums up a series of !ve ‘spotlight sessions’ that each gathers scholars into a panel to discuss the current state of cultural research in different regions of Europe : central, east, north, south and west. The latter is actually limited to British cultural studies, indicating that these regions are far from innocent concepts, and we expect critical debates around the very idea of dividing Europe in this manner! The European branch of the international Association for Cultural Studies ACS has kindly supported our efforts by letting their board members chair and take part in these spotlight sessions.

    Parallel to the spotlights a total number of 50 group sessions, including double sessions, involving more than 200 participants will take place. Conferences are not only work, they are also a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. In addition to the discussions at the sessions, there will be plenty of time to socialise at the reception hosted by the city of Norrköping on Wednesday evening and the big conference dinner on Thursday night.

    Since the start these ACSIS conferences have provided a rich overview of the contemporary trends in cultural research, which our conference publications prove. We will continue this work and publish the conference proceedings, which are open to all conference participants, of this year in open access at Linköping University Electronic Press. More information about the proceedings will be distributed after the conference. Participants are also invited to submit articles to our refereed academic journal Culture Unbound : Journal of Current Cultural Research, published open access since 2009 by Linköping University Electronic Press. Culture Unbound is partly owned by ACSIS and as the journal’s publication history shows, it is a wonderful resource for publishing this kind of texts (www.cultureunbound.ep.liu.se).

    The national board of ACSIS has served as a programme committee for the conference, and a great number of local supporters have assisted in preparing and organising the event. The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation (Stiftelsen Riksbankens Jubileumsfond), the Wenner-Gren Foundations (Wenner-Gren Stiftelserna), Linköping University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the city of Norrköping have contributed with the funding needed to make this all possible. Last but certainly not least, we are enormously grateful for and impressed by the nonsalaried e#orts from all invited speakers, Panelists, moderators, session organisers and paper presenters who have !lled these frameworks with such fascinating intellectual contents.

    This programme book includes the full programme, abstracts, maps and various other kinds of information, ending with a list of participants and emails in alphabetic order.

    Welcome to Norrköping, to ACSIS and to the borderlands of European cultural studies!

    Current Issues in European Cultural Studies, June 15–17, Norrköping, Sweden 20112011Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In June 2011 ACSIS arranged its fourth biennial conference on cultural research, this time on the subject “Current Issues in European Cultural Studies”. The conference provided an updated inventory of main issues in European cultural studies today, covering cross-European topics and trends as well as regional developments in East, West, South, North and Central Europé.

    The program had three main levels. First, a series of plenary sessions dealt with selected key current issues for cultural studies that partly connected to European perspectives and partly reached beyond this geographic scope. Second, a set of spotlight sessions opened up for presentations and debates on the state of cultural studies in different regions of Europé, leading up to a final plenary discussing whether EU’s motto “united in diversity” is also applicable to European cultural studies. Finally, about 200 cultural studies scholars from all over the world came together to present their own research in more than 30 parallel sessions. You can find the details on the participants in the Statistics for 2011 and if you really like figures you find statistics for all conferences in Statistics 2005-2011.

    The conference was supported by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, Wenner-Gren Foundations, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Linköping University and the City of Norrköping.

    From biopiracy to bioprospecting: Negotiating the Limits of Propertization2017In: Property, Place and Piracy / [ed] James Arvanitakis and Martin Fredriksson, Routledge, 2017, p. 174-186Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1990s the patenting a n d commodification of biological resources and traditional knowledge has become a contested phenomenon. This practice comes in many guises: it can be conducted by universities working in collaboration with local communities, by small commercial research companies or by multinational pharmaceutical corporations. Some call it biopiracy while others prefer the term bioprospecting or biodiscovery. The choice of words is significant as it reflects not only different ways to conduct and distribute the revenues from patenting of biological resources, but also different ways to look at the legitimacy of biopatents as such. This chapter takes the Nagoya Protocol – a UN protocol aiming to prevent biopiracy – as an example to discuss how the negotiations over bio patents also reflect different approaches to commodification of nature and the limits of propertization.

    Piracy and the Politics of Social Media2016In: Social Sciences, ISSN 2076-0760, Vol. 5, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1990s, the understanding of how and where politics are made has changed radically. Scholars such as Ulrich Beck and Maria Bakardjieva have discussed how political agency is enacted outside of conventional party organizations, and political struggles increasingly focus on single issues. Over the past two decades, this transformation of politics has become common knowledge, not only in academic research but also in the general political discourse. Recently, the proliferation of digital activism and the political use of social media are often understood to enforce these tendencies. This article analyzes the Pirate Party in relation to these theories, relying on almost 30 interviews with active Pirate Party members from different parts of the world. The Pirate Party was initially formed in 2006, focusing on copyright, piracy, and digital privacy. Over the years, it has developed into a more general democracy movement, with an interest in a wider range of issues. This article analyzes how the party’s initial focus on information politics and social media connects to a wider range of political issues and to other social movements, such as Arab Spring protests and Occupy Wall Street. Finally, it discusses how this challenges the understanding of information politics as a single issue agenda.

    Piracy, Globalisation and the Colonisation of the Commons2012In: Global Media Journal : Australian Edition, ISSN 1835-2340, E-ISSN 1835-2340, Vol. 6, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decade piracy has become a source of constant debate. While copyright organisations describe piracy as simple theft, others regard it as a legitimate form of cultural consumption in a digital environment. Piracy is, however, not a phenomenon unique to digital media of the 21st century. This article takes the history of copyright and piracy as a starting point for a discussion about piracy as a cultural and political phenomenon that goes beyond the contemporary preoccupation with particular piratical practices such as file sharing. It seeks to show how copyright and piracy are integrated aspects of modern society, equally situated in the urban, social space of the modern city and the global, geopolitical landscape of colonialism in the past and the present. One might call it a study of how piracy is constituted in space over time.

    The article sets out with a short overview of the colonial heritage of copyright, followed by a discussion of the re-contextualisation of copyright within the structures of international trade relations in the 1990s, moving on to discuss how this positioned piracy within a postcolonial order of power. It concludes with a brief discussion of how piracy has become an integrated part of everyday life in contemporary, postcolonial cities and how this development reflects piracy's role in the process of late capitalist globalisation.

    Pirate Politics between protest movement and the parliament2016In: Ephemera : Theory and Politics in Organization, ISSN 2052-1499, E-ISSN 1473-2866, Vol. 16, no 2, p. 99-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the early days of parliamentary democracy, political movements have tried to cometo terms with the conflict between the struggle for radical political change and the need tobe accepted as a respectable alternative within parliamentary politics. This paper analyzeshow this conflict has played out in the Pirate Party: a political party focusing on issues ofcopyright, surveillance, access to information, and right to privacy in a digital age. Sincethe first Pirate Party was formed in Sweden in 2006, national pirate parties haveemerged across Europe, North America and Australia, and they have occasionally wonrepresentation in different parliaments.This article looks at how the Pirate Party has handled the tensions between radical andreformist fractions, contextualized within contemporary social movement theories. Theconflicts have largely dealt with colliding principles for political organization whereconventional party structures are challenged by new, and assumingly less hierarchic,forms of interaction and decision making inspired by radical, digital protests movements.This study rests on a series of interviews with Pirate Party members in Sweden, the USAand Germany. It analyses the interviews in relation to Ulrich Beck’s and MariaBakardjieva’s theories on subpolitics and subactivism, asking why a movement thatcomes across as the prototype for a decentered, networked, subpolitical movementdecides to organize as a parliamentary political party and what consequences that has hadfor the Pirate Party.

    Pirate Utopia Revisited2019In: The Routledge Companion to Global Television / [ed] Shawn Shimpach, Routledge, 2019, p. 469-478Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Television delivery throughout the world has changed rapidly over the past two decades. Within South Africa, much of this global narrative is repeated. The last 25 years have seen a move from a single monopoly broadcaster within the ‘public service’ tradition (but later subsumed into the apartheid political agenda), to the present situation of a multi-company, multi-platform, increasingly digital delivery, calling into question even the very definition of ‘broadcasting’. ‘Global difference’ in South Africa plays out through a relatively late start but surprisingly short catch-up period, emphasizing a demographic/socio-economic specificity that has resulted in a highly skewed television market in which the uptake of high-end technology is less widespread than in other more ‘developed’ markets, and where the taste of local programming dominates even the technologically advanced sectors. The move toward a digital regime, together with the introduction of competition, has provided challenges to the regulatory regime. The majority of the audience share, however, remains with local programming, regardless of its delivery.

    Abstract [en]

    This article draws on a series of interviews with members of the Pirate Party, a political party focusing on copyright and information politics, in different countries. It discusses the interviewees’ visions of democracy and technology and explains that copyright is seen as not only an obstacle to the free consumption of music and movies but a threat to the freedom of speech, the right to privacy, and a thriving public sphere. The first part of this article briefly sketches how the Pirate Party’s commitment to the democratic potential of new communication technologies can be interpreted as a defense of a digitally expanded lifeworld against the attempts at colonization by market forces and state bureaucracies. The second part problematizes this assumption by discussing the interactions between the Pirate movement and the tech industry in relation to recent theories on the connection between political agency and social media.
