    Meanings of money: The Euro as a sign of value and of cultural identity2008In: We Europeans? Media, representations, identities / [ed] William Uricchio, Bristol: Intellect Press , 2008, 1, p. 123-139Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This comparative study of euro (-) coins and banknotes as symbolic texts and media artefacts looks for changing national and supranational identifications in these official but widespread signs of economic and cultural value. How are facets of a joint European project signified in the common European images and national coin sides? How do they contribute to the shaping of a continentally shared cultural identity, in relation to pre¬vious national currencies? What meanings are shaped by euro money as a medium of transnational identification? Money signifies and transfers economic values. But coins and banknotes are also material artefacts that circulate widely among citizens. As such, they not only communicate a certain amount of abstract exchange value, but also throw other meanings into circulation in daily life. They have to be clearly identifiable in terms of value, nationality, age and authenticity. Produced by the international system of state national banks, they circulate condensed images of national identities and sociocultural value hierarchies through their carefully chosen design. Thus, they are widely spread media communicating conventionalised collective identifica¬tions that reach deep into daily life by being used by virtually everyone on a daily basis. The introduction of the euro in 2001, and its subsequent spread to an increasing number of nations within the European Union, offers a splendid chance to study changes in national identifications on an official level that also reaches deep into the wallets of daily life. How has this chance to contribute to redefining a shared European future been used by various actors? What meanings can be discerned on the faces of these money signs, and how are they understood by states and citizens across Europe? A close reading is made of these signs of economic and cultural value, in relation to current public discourses of national and post-national identity, and to ideas on money and cultural identity from Simmel, Benjamin, Habermas and others. Comparisons are made between value levels, between countries, and with pre-euro money, to discern value hierarchies, regional and political patterns, and historical changes. The public and political processes that gave birth to the euro designs show how EU institutions, states, economic market actors, designers and citizens interacted to develop new forms of identification across Europe. These micro media of communication and exchange greedily criss-cross national borders, but to what extent and in which ways do they also produce germs of truly transnational identities? Public discourses on the euro design are heavily colonised by the political and economic forces of that national and inter-national bank system through which interacting state bodies regulate the globalising market. Still, they offer a glimpse into the ways in which official identifications presently slide into new shapes. Comparing forms of cultural identification on the euro (a multiple site where identities are represented but also made), potentials and limitations of the project of a transnational European cultural identity are discussed.

    Media passages in urban spaces of consumption2006In: Geographies of communication: The spatial turn in media studies / [ed] Jesper Falkheimer & André Jansson, Göteborg: Nordicom , 2006, p. 205-220Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between space and communication is becoming more complex. Mediatisation blurs the boundaries between different spaces, as well as between dimensions of space. It also leads to the re-articulation of geographical territories – often (re)producing socio-political values and power struggles. This book departs from the assertion that the changing character of media society calls for a spatial turn in media studies. There are clear signs that such a turn is on its way. But no account has yet been formulated for the full potential of this. Gathering new analyses from leading Nordic media scholars, geographers and ethnologists, this book provides a broad view of the perspectives that emerge from the spatial turn. The chapters explore issues such as (trans)nationality, tourism, urban culture, interactive media, and the networking of domestic space. Together, they map out what might become a new sub-field within media and cultural studies: the geography of communication.

    Mediesamspel i tid och rum2002In: Medier och människor i konsumtionsrummet / [ed] Karin Becker, Nora: Nya Doxa , 2002, p. 283-345Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Medier är en stor och viktig del av vårt vardagsliv. Vi tittar på TV och video, läser böcker och tidningar, skickar kort och talar i mobiltelefon, lyssnar på plattor och fotograferar. Men egentligen börjar vår konsumtion av medier redan då vi köper dem i butikerna. Denna bok har sin startpunkt just där, för att sedan följa medievarorna ut i vardagen med sina köpare. I mötena mellan människor och medier avslöjas medieindustrins makt över människorna, men också hur människorna tar makten över sina medier.Hur väljer, köper, använder och avyttrar människor olika typer av medievaror? Hur samspelar olika medier med varandra och vad skiljer dem åt? Vilka medier ingår enligt kronofogden i hushållens normala minimistandard? Hur organiseras tidningskiosken, bokhandeln och fotoaffären för att locka människor till köp? Är affischer konst? Vad innebär samlande, ägande, lån och gåvor när det gäller skivor, böcker eller kort? Hur strukturerar ungdomar, barnfamiljer och pensionärer tid och rum genom bruket av video och telefon? Är det företagen eller människorna som är mest globala? Förs det någon kamp om mediernas makt i vardagen

    Mirroring Meetings, Mirroring Media: The Microphysics of Reflexivity1994In: Cultural Studies, ISSN 0950-2386, E-ISSN 1466-4348, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 321-340Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is today a grow­ing reflexi­vi­ty in individual and collective identity con­struct­ions. Iden­ti­ties are always formed in relation to others and through symbolic struc­tures, but this pro­cess has been more mobilized, differentiated, focused and prob­lematized in late modernity – the most recent phase of the process of mod­ern­iza­tion.[i] This is true for daily life as well as for re­search. Reflexivity has in various ways been an important theme within psycho­ana­lysis, history, an­thro­­po­lo­gy and sociology, as well as in some recent Nordic studies of youth and popular cul­ture. The well-known linguistic, cultural or communicative turn has made everyday reflexivity a cent­ral theo­retical theme, and it has also sharpened in­tel­lectual self-reflection.

    At the same time, media seem to become more and more important as tools of identity work – in sub­cultural formations as well as in common everyday life. This historical process of medialisation[ii] is intimately intertwined with the continuous increase in reflexivity, since media deliver many of those self-images used for iden­ti­ty constructions, including the problematizations of earlier ones. Media (mass or not) have various use values as cultural instruments for symbolic communication, and they are deeply ambivalent – both expres­sive and ef­fect­ive, communica­tive and con­strict­ing, emancipatory and authoritarian. Re­flex­iv­ity is one of their many use values, in that they express and shape indi­vidual as well as collective identities by functioning in reception as vehicles and mirrors for self-definitions. But identities are also mirrored in non-mediated meetings between people: reflexivity can as well be carried by face-to-face interaction through symbolic forms like speech or ges­tures. A medium is in some sense always needed for communication but it need not be a technical apparatus – sound or light waves can suffice.

    My aim is here to reflect upon the relation between mirroring, meetings and media, in order to explore the fabrics and processes of self-mir­ror­ing, or what can be called the microphysics of reflexivity. The re­fer­ence point for my reflections is an empirical research project, where I and two col­leagues studied the relationship between some young people and our­selv­es as researchers. We first studied twenty teenagers in three dif­fer­ent peer groups playing amateur rock, and constructed models of their micro­cul­tures and of the uses they made of rock – and other sym­bol­ic expressions or media forms – in identity work. We then let them read the re­sult­ing book, and discussed it with them.[iii] The con­tinued dialogue also included writ­ten statements from some of these (not anymore so) young people, then in their early twenties.

    [i] Fornäs (1987 and 1990d; also Fornäs et al 1988 and 1990b) used the concept of late modernity as an alternative to the highly pro­blem­atic concept of ’post’-modern­ity. Since then it has turned up now and again in various contexts, e g in Willis (1990) and Giddens (1991).

    [ii] The useful term me­dia­li­sa­tion was probably introduced by the Swedish media re­searcher Kent Asp (1986).

    [iii] Fornäs et.al. (1988), summarized in Fornäs et.al. (1990b); Fornäs et.al. (1990a). Methodological issues are also considered in Fornäs (1991). Our study was strikingly similar to what Radway (1988) asks for, as a collaborative interdisciplinary effort to use the study of whole group cultures to un­der­stand the way certain media and forms of expressions functioned, instead of a priori focusing only one single activity, medium or genre.

    Vi är ständigt omgivna av fiktioner. Det är inte längre bara genom böcker som vårt behov av berättelser tillgodoses. Fiktioner möter oss även i TV-program, filmer, datorspel, musik, reklam. Det tycks mera angeläget än någonsin att förstå vad dessa berättelser säger oss och vår tid, samtidigt som de tidigare skarpa gränserna mellan högt och lågt verkar suddas ut.Uppsatserna i antologin Populära fiktioner handlar om detta. Den vänder sig till alla som är intresserade av att förstå populärkulturen och dess plats i dagens samhälle

    Abstract [en]

    Popular music in late modernity contains crucial ambivalences that ask for a non-reduc­tionist cultural critique. To that end, a multi-dimensional model is suggested for understanding sources, learning pro­ces­ses, recent changes, and resistance forms in pop and youth culture. On an objective level, a growing systemic rationality of technology, politics and economy induces counter-powers and counter-institutions. On a social level, a gradual release from traditional norms and relations inspire experiments with counter-values and counter-groups. On a subjective level new narcissist personal traits develop, leading to counter-identities. On a cultural level a growing reflexivity make counter-cultures try out open and flexible forms of symbolic interaction and music making.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ungdomskulturella aktiviteter karakteriseras ofta som i något avseende narcissistiska, inte minst i samband med rockmusik, dans, kroppskultur och gänggemenskap. Detta är ett mycket vanligt tema i aktuell svensk och nordisk ungdomskulturforskning, inte minst i min egen verksamhet. Vissa drag i ungdomskulturen tolkas som narcissistiska, för att de möjliggör och aktualiserar upplevelser av gränslöshet, sammansmältning och självspegling, med rötter i mycket tidig barndom, före språktillägnelsen. Dessa narcissistiska drag förknippas å ena sidan med ungdomsfasens nödvändiga regression till förverbala utvecklingsstadier och upplevelseformer, å andra sidan med senmodea kulturtendenser som resulterat ur förändrade socialisationsvillkor, mediernas och kulturindustrins expansion och en övergripande erosion av traderade normer och identitetsmönster.2 Så kan man på en subjektiv, psykisk nivå söka åtminstone en delförklaring till varför rock, kamratgrupper etc har så stor betydelse för just ungdomar i just vår tid.

    Abstract [sv]

    Alla har stil. Det finns alltid någon grad av relativ regelbundenhet i det sätt på vilket var och en av oss uttrycker sig symboliskt; i kropp och kläder, rörelser och språk, musik och smakmönster. Var för sig, och tillsammans med skilda grupper som vi identifierar oss med, skapar vi stil genom att sätta samman olika kulturella uttryck till specifika kombinationer som i varierande grad delas av andra människor och följer estetiska och sociala mönster med viss beständighet.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vart man än vänder sig omges man idag av medier, inte minst i ett köpcentrum  gratistidningar, affischer, tv-monitorer, musik, telefoner För att kunna säga något väsentligt om medierna i ett nutida konsumtionsrum är det också nödvändigt att analysera själva ramen, köpcentrumet. I antologin Passager besvaras bl a frågor om vad ortens berömda fotbollslag har där att göra, varför bänkarna hela tiden flyttar på sig, vad ett köpcentrum egentligen kostar, hur gränsen dras mellan vi och dom, varför det aldrig är vinter där. Det handlar om ägandeförhållanden och yttrandefrihet, ljudlandskapets geografi, postmodern arkitektur med historiska rötter, kampen mellan offentlig konst och reklamskyltning, shopping i cyberrymden, människor som älskar eller hatar sitt centrum och om hur hela köpcentrumet kan ses som ett enormt medium.

    Abstract [en]

    Concepts of multimodality, intermediality and intertextuality are here put in a wider cultural context of boundaries and transgressions. Earlier concepts of passages and thresholds may enrich today’s understanding of recent mixtures and flows across borders within contemporary digital media culture. A trace from Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project is followed through the borderlands of a contemporary shopping centre in order to approach late modern thinking of flows across borders in media culture and cultural studies, where with contextualising, dialogic and critical interpretation are crucial. The combination of ‘multi’ and ‘inter’ stresses plurality and interrelations rather than monolithic and essentialist reductions. A first section presents sociological, anthropological and philosophical ideas of passages and borderlands. The second section outlines main kinds of media passages through real and virtual spaces. The third section discusses the interrelations between multi- and inter-concepts that are today crucial for cultural theory, suggesting some ways to understand their mutual connections.

    “Play it yourself”: Swedish music in movement1993In: Social Science Information, ISSN 0539-0184, E-ISSN 1461-7412, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 39-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, rock music has in many different ways and phases moved young people into action. Listening to music, and making rock, induces new thoughts that can inspire social and political activity, as is well known in the general myth­ology of rock-as-rebellion. In the 1970s, an “alter­na­tive”, “non-com­mercial” or “pro­gres­sive” music movement was born, and it is informative to study how and why it formed, developed and (at least in some ways) faded away. It can be studied as an interesting historical example of a new, youthful social and cultural movement, and its history mir­rors the general changes of late modern society and culture. This his­to­ry also contains clues to the understanding of music’s moving potentials, in opposition to domi­nant norms of society, to outdated traditional authori­ties, to adult institu­tions and to power interests based on mar­ket, state, class, gen­der, ethnicity or geography. This text will deal with these issues. In what way has the Swed­ish music movement experimented with organizing alternatives to dominant market and state mechanisms, with resisting exter­nal press­ures and with formulating progressivity and emancipation in terms of cultural policy? How does it illuminate the mobilizing potentials of mu­sic?

    Abstract [sv]

    -Voices making difference: Crossing identifications in Swedish popular culture 1920-1950- starts and ends with reflections on the concept of intersectionality and its uses in recent debates. Its potentials to open dialogues between different perspectives on identity orders such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, age and generation need to be nourished and protected against divisive ways of transforming it into a means to dig trenches between such perspectives. It is argued that there is no a priori given set of identity dimensions, but that the choice of which orders to focus is always context-dependent and needs to be decided for each particular study. It is also emphasised that both crossings and boundaries between dimensions need to be reconstructed in empirical interpretations, since both links and differences are produced in specific cultural practices and texts, even though the connecting -inter-- may analytically and politically be privileged over the dividing --sect-. A further observation is that while in some texts, identity orders may line up or prismatically reinforce each other in clear patterns, they do as often combine in much more diffuse, ambiguous and contradictory ways. The central sections of the article present an example of an intersectional and also intermedial analysis of song lyrics, novels, films and other identity texts that were triggered by the advent and assimilation of jazz music in the Swedish welfare society of the 1920-1950 period. Examples of primitivist polarisations of white/black and male/female are juxtaposed to more openly subject positions. An example of the former is the author Artur Lundkvist, who in his book Negerkust (Negro Coast, 1933) exploited black women as both racially and sexually -Others-. The teenage jazz star Alice Babs exemplifies the hybridising option, when she in songs and films around 1940 transgressed and redefined borders in the age, class, gender and ethnic dimensions.

    Abstract [sv]

    Det är lätt att inbilla sig att man tänker på ungefär samma sätt hela tiden, men så är det inte. Även om vi anser oss hålla fast vid stabila grundvalar och ledstjärnor, hamnar vi ständigt i nya relationer, och våra redskap och frågor förskjuts successivt, beroende på både vår egen utveckling och en föränderlig omvärld. Läget för svensk ungdomskulturforskning är idag verkligen mycket annorlunda än för 5-10 år sedan. Forskningsriktningar som då befann sig i marginalen och var relativt oprövade i empirisk forskning - stil-, subkultur-, socialisations- och modernitetsteorier - ingår nu i varje allmän grundkurs på området. Gamla fiender har tynat bort, nya problem har växt fram.

    Vilka uppgifter känns mot denna bakgrund centrala för oss här idag? Vi kan fortsätta, komplettera och finslipa våra gamla projekt. Vi kan låta teori och empiri utveckla varandra ömsesidigt. Vi kan låta olika teoribildningar mötas i ett medvetet och selektivt teoretiskt brico-lage-arbete. Vi kan slutligen också finna områden för teoretisk nyproduktion, blinda fläckar inom eller mellan olika förklaringstyper som kräver nya begrepp och modeller. Jag kommer här att behandla några sådana brännpunkter som berör modernitetsteorins formmässiga aspekter: begreppens strukturer och relationer snarare än deras innehållsliga bestämningar. Syftet är dels att diskutera några problem i denna teoribildning, dels att skissera vissa distinktioner och dimensioner som det i mina ögon är viktigt och nyttigt att särskilja. Avsikten är att bidra till att stärka grundvalarna för en forskning som försöker fånga vår tids ungdomskulturella fenomens aktualitet utan att själv fångas i trendernas tillfälligheter.

    Sfärernas disharmonier: Om ungdomskultur, makt och motstånd1993In: Ungdomar i skilda sfärer, Johan Fornäs, Ulf Boëthius och Bo Reimer (red.) / [ed] Johan Fornäs, Ulf Boëthius, Bo Reimer, Stockholm: Brutus Östlings Bokförlag Symposion AB , 1993, p. 13-102Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Motstånd har länge hört till honnörsorden i diskussionen om ungdomskultur, svårt att komma förbi när man studerar unga människors kulturella uttryck och praxis. Ålders- och generationsbundet motstånd mot vuxnas makt tycks vara en ungdomsfasens sega tradition, ideligen sammanvävd med motstånd mot andra maktstrukturer, knutna till kön, klass eller etnicitet. Men ofta tas begreppen för givna, som om alla visste vilka som gör motstånd mot vad, när det vid närmare eftertanke visar sig finnas en snårskog av ytterst skilda perspektiv.

    Här ska jag röja några stigar i djungeln genom att sätta in motståndsbegreppet i en rad olika teoretiska ramar som alla på var sitt sätt har med samhällssfärer att göra. Sfärernas institutionella ramverk utgör alltid i viss mån apparater för maktutövning. Olika polariteter av makt och motstånd samverkar på ett högst intrikat sätt med varandra, men ibland knyter sig olika motståndsembryon samman och bildar tydliga motstrukturer. Ungdomskulturforskningen har rört sig på alla sådana nivåer, från vardagens små potentialer eller embryon till motkulturerna och de organiserade rörelserna. Samtidigt som nivåerna hänger ihop med varandra är det ibland viktigt att hålla dem isär och veta vad man pratar om. I stället för att skrota det vaga och inflationsdrabbade motståndsbegreppet vill jag förorda att vi preciserar det.

    Här ska jag därför först bena ut begrepp som sfärer, fält, områden, rum, arenor, scener, institutioner, ramar, ordningar och strukturer. Därefter diskuterar jag utförligare några teoribildningar runt begrepp som institutioner, rörelser, offentligheter, smakfält och delkulturer. Slutligen handlar det om olika sätt att teoretiskt analysera makt och motstånd, för att se om och i så fall hur sådana begrepp är användbara i aktuell kultur- och ungdomskulturforskning. I början blir det en del teoretiskt utredningsarbete, men jag hoppas att det ska tjäna sitt syfte väl, genom att lägga grunden för de mer politiskt och strategiskt orienterade resonemangen mot slutet.

    Abstract [en]

    Are words and music two separate symbolic modes, or rather variants of the same human symbolic practice? Are they parallel, opposing or over­lap­ping? What do they have in common and how does each of them exceed the other? Is music perhaps incomparably dif­fer­ent from words, or even their anti-verbal Other? Distinctions between text (in the verbal sense of units of words rather than in the wide sense of symbolic webs in general) and music are regularly made – but also prob­lem­atized – within music­al practices that create, regulate or use musical works, as well as within theoretical discourses on culture.

    First, there has been a reductive verbocentrism in much cultural theory, which was for a long period dominated by linguistics and literary approaches, notably within the influential but problematic tradition line from structuralist semi­ot­ics to post­struc­turalism (including Saussure, Lévi-Strauss, Jakobson, Barthes and Derri­da). There was a tendency to reduce all sym­bol­ic modes to one single core of semi­ot­ic codes, basically common to all mean­ing­ful hu­man sign systems. All human com­munication was seen in basic­al­ly ling­uistic terms as de­pendent on and ultimately derived from the verbal lang­uage system.

    Instead of under­standing music (or images) as simply a less perfect type of text, contrary demands have repeatedly been raised, for example by dance scholars or musicologists, for accepting that each symbolic mode is genuinely and ir­re­ducibly different (e.g., by Blacking, 1973: 21). Em­phas­iz­ing the pecu­li­ar­i­ties of music makes it pos­sible to acknowledge the very limits of language: everything is not redu­cib­le to words, and cultural theory should be aware of the limitations of pre­vail­ing verbo­centric para­digms.

    However, many who talk of music and words as two almost oppo­si­tion­al symbolic modes misrepresent each of them and underestimate their simi­lar­ities, in a procedure of ‘stereotypical dualism’ that make each sym­bolic mode appear as a rela­tive­ly closed whole fol­lowing its own rules, auto­nomously from (or in opposition to) the others. This leads to an ‘essen­tial­ism’ of sym­bol­ic modes, in spite of all efforts to argue that they are socially and his­tor­ic­al­ly con­structed. I will argue that the dif­fer­ence between text and music is not as radi­cal as is often be­lieved – both by literary theorists and by musicologists. At least, it cannot be reduced to a clear-cut dichotomy.

    After a short historical survey of the conflictual discourses that have arti­cu­lated the dif­fer­ences between symbolic modes, I will here discuss a series of dicho­tomies that circle around the text/music-rela­tion­ship. These will be discussed in two steps: first the general polarizations of symbolic modes which are mainly based upon their dependance on sense modalities (visuality vs. aurality), and then the distinctions of symbolic aspects or levels connected to the concept of discursivity. I will argue that such distinctions have to be kept apart, in order to respect the complexities of the way text and music inter­relate, and that they are all intersubjective constructions rather than objective facts. In fact, text/music is no polar dichotomy at all.

    The crucial in between: The centrality of mediation in cultural studies2000In: European Journal of Cultural Studies, ISSN 1367-5494, E-ISSN 1460-3551, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 45-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the beginning of cultural studies as we know it, and more generally of the cultural turn in the human scien­ces, there was text, but since texts seemed to be transparent carriers of lived ex­pe­ri­ences and social relations, they tended them­selves to remain invisible as such. Then, with the structuralist critiques of culturalism, all became text in a much more emphatic sense: there seemed to be nothing else in the world. In recent years, there has appeared a back­lash ten­dency to get rid of textual mediations in order to revive lived reality in its absolute im­me­di­ate presence. As text­ual­ity once exterminated subjective and objective realities, now there are efforts to kill the text and dance on its grave.

    I do not want to join either of these purist conceptual cleansings. Instead, my plea is for the con­taminating notion of mediation as a necessary basis for cultural studies. This is no radically new idea, but neither are its adversaries, contrary to their own self-images. Purifying attacks on com­plexly mediational forms of understanding – particularly but not exclusively in structuralist streams of thought – often make use of the recurrent romantic trope of radi­cally breaking free from tradi­tion, including the tradition of modern thought itself.
