    “Put it in your Story”: Digital Storytelling in Instagram and Snapchat Stories.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores the Snapchat and Instagram feature of “Stories” and aims to understand what users post in their “Stories” and how they make use of the feature to tell their story. The application of narrative theory theoretically informs the concept of digital storytelling, which is ultimately the practice of telling online stories. The methodology consists of a qualitative content analysis of Snapchat and Instagram “Stories”, observation of active ordinary users and in-depth semi-structured interviews to address the user’s perspective.

    The main results indicate that there are themed patterns following narrative structures in Snapchat and Instagram “Stories”. For that reason eight categories were created and divided between the four narrative elements according to Barthes (1977) and these were actions (demonstrating emotions, eating, interacting), happenings (updates), characters (people, self- portraits and animals) and setting (environment). In addition, another result is that Snapchat and Instagram storytellers make use of seven means to tell their stories and create a narrative. These means are images, texts, videos, emoji, doodles, instant information and filters. Human beings are natural storytellers according to the Narrative Paradigm by Fisher (1984), which explains the popularity of the “Stories” feature, as well as the discovered categories based on narrative elements and the use of semiotic resources to make more sense of the stories told by users.

    Synthetic Biology in the Press: Media Portrayal in Sweden and Italy2016In: Ambivalences of Creating Life. : Societal and Philosophical Dimensions of Synthetic Biology / [ed] K Hagen, M Engelhard & G Toepfer, Dordrecht: Springer, 2016, p. 141-156Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Synthetic biology is a rapidly evolving field which potentially can change how we live in and understand the world. Given its potential impact it is important to inform and involve the public so that it gains a proper understanding of synthetic biology and is in a position to assess its future applications and implications. This study investigates through qualitative content analysis the synthetic biology press coverage in Sweden and Italy between 2009 and 2013. The three major newspapers of each country were considered a good example of what was offered to the public in a period which witnessed important scientific advancements of the field and consequent media resonance. The framing of the articles was analyzed in the light of the idea that mass media not only inform the public but also contribute to the shaping of ideas. Language was analysed and found to be generally adequate. The topics were presented in an overall positive and optimistic tone, which was reflected also in the benefits and risks envisioned. The two countries can be considered rather different in many social and cultural respects, yet besides a few differences (mainly quantitative), striking similarities were found, probably related to a marked dependence on the common sources of the articles and the lack of critical scrutiny on the behalf of the media.

    Uncritical and unbalanced coverage of synthetic biology in the Nordic press2017In: Public Understanding of Science, ISSN 0963-6625, E-ISSN 1361-6609, Vol. 26, no 2, p. 235-250Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Synthetic biology will probably have a high impact on a variety of fields, such as healthcare, environment, biofuels, agriculture, and so on. A driving theme in European research policy is the importance of maintaining public legitimacy and support. Media can influence public attitudes and are therefore an important object of study. Through qualitative content analysis, this study investigates the press coverage of synthetic biology in the major Nordic countries between 2009 and 2014. The press coverage was found to be event-driven and there were striking similarities between countries when it comes to framing, language use, and treated themes. Reporters showed a marked dependence on their sources, mainly scientists and stakeholders, who thus drives the media agenda. The media portrayal was very positive, with an optimistic look at future benefits and very little discussion of possible risks.

    Propagaming: Uncovering Propaganda In War Videogames2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the issue of propaganda in contemporary war themed videogames. Considering the current geopolitical situation on one hand, and the pervasiveness and widespread use of the videogame medium in general, and war videogames in particular, together with the collaboration between the military and the videogame industry, part of the wider military-entertainment complex, on the other hand, it cannot be excluded that military propaganda might be present in such digital media.

    This study explores through which persuasive techniques is propaganda manifest in war-themed videogames. The answer is achieved using theories of rhetoric and persuasiveness in videogames and by conducting a textual game analysis of 10 different war-themed videogames.

    A great number of persuasive techniques at work were found within the videogames, each of them working based on certain principles identified by previous literature. Through a limited set of options, players are exposed to the normalization of morally questionable acts such as civilian shooting and torture of enemy prisoners. The war videogames in question are not neutral in their playworld, mechanics, and playformance, and heavy and widespread use of propaganda can be found within them.

    Social Media Supporting Democratic Dialogue2013In: Ambiguous Technologies: Philosophical Issues, Practical Solutions, Human Nature, Lisbon: Autónoma University , 2013, p. 36-43Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term of “social media” appears in newspapers and magazines everyday and the huge number of people use social media actively in daily life. Nowadays, in the highly Information and Communication Technology (ICT) developed country Japan, Japanese people enroll in social media and evolve a new way of communicating with others based on the “virtual” social distance between them. Among social media, Twitter has been focusing on its strong power as the tool for political change recent years. While Twitter has of-expressed problems as well as the “traditional” social media, it is characterized by the limited number of characters, strong propagation and optional reciprocity. Those characteristics stimulate people’s communication online and bring about opportunities for social interaction and democratic dialogue. On the other hand, in the deluge of information, we need to nurture skills to utilize critical and rational way of thinking through dialogue not only between others also between themselves internally. This study explores characteristics of social media and differences between “traditional” social media and Twitter, and how the difference affects people’s information behavior in Japan.

    Representationer, stereotyper och nyhetsvärdering: Rapport från medieanalys om representationer av muslimer i svenska nyheter2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med rapporten var bland annat att ge en bild av hur representationer av muslimer yttrar sig i svensk nyhetsrapportering. Ytterligare ett syfte var att sätta dessa representationer i ett sammanhang, dels genom reflektioner från redaktörer på några av de studerade medierna, dels i en vidare ram av forskning.

    Den första delen av rapporten består av en innehållsanalys av tidningsartiklar och radio-och tv-nyheter från en sju veckor lång period i oktober–november 2014. Den andra delen behandlar genomförda intervjuer med redaktörer på några av de studerade medierna.

    Analysen visade bland annat att nästan alla artiklar handlade om eller relaterade till våld, hot, islamofobi eller spänningar i samhället. Mediebilden av muslimer som sammankopplade med de negativa stereotyperna blev också stark i frånvaron av andra berättelser. Rapporten visade också att det är lite som har förändrats i relation till studier som genomfördes i Sverige för nästan 20 år sedan.

    Studien genomfördes av Centrum för forskning om religion och samhälle, Uppsala universitet som ansvarar för innehållet och för de slutsatser som dras. Studien utfördes på uppdrag av Diskrimineringsombudsmannen.

    Tweets Win Votes: A Persuasive Communication Perspective on Donald Trump’s Twitter Use During the 2016 US Presidential Election Campaign2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Twitter, a microblogging platform, has been increasingly used as a tool for political election campaigns. In an attempt to persuade people to vote for them, candidates and political parties worldwide have begun to incorporate Twitter in their campaigns to disseminate campaign information, promote themselves, and mobilize voters. In the 2016 U.S presidential election, Donald Trump had actively utilized Twitter to promote his campaign and convince voters to support him, which helped him earn a strong presence and huge popularity on Twitter. Eventually Trump even successfully got elected as the 45th US president. Although the rise of Twitter in political campaigns has been studied by researches from different disciplines, there have been very few studies focusing on Donald Trump or his communication performance on social media in the 2016 US presidential campaign. Besides, it is found that there is a lack of studying candidates’ social media use from the perspective of persuasive communication. In order to reveal how Donald Trump was making use of Twitter to influence audiences’ attitudes, this paper will present a content analysis of Donald Trump’s Twitter use from the perspective of persuasive communication. Specifically, the study will investigate the characteristics of messages demonstrated from Donald Trump’s tweets, and examine whether his messages placed an emphasis on certain aspects. The aim of this study is to offer insights into Donald Trump’s Twitter use, particularly about his persuasive communication on Twitter during the political election campaign.

    Från granskare till guide: om medborgarjournalistikens och deltagarkulturens påverkan på svenska journalisters professionella identitet2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Title: From inspectors to guides: how citizen journalism and participatory culture

    affect the professional identity of Swedish journalists (Swedish title: Från granskare

    till guide: om medborgarjournalistikens och deltagarkulturens påverkan på svenska

    journalisters professionella identitet).

    Number of pages: 44 (48 including enclosures).

    Authors: Towe Bengtsson and Matilda Källén.

    Tutor: Amelie Hössjer.

    Course: Media and Communication Studies C.

    Period: Fall 2011.

    University: Division of Media and Communication, Department of Informatics and

    Media, Uppsala University.

    Purpose/Aim: The goal of this paper was to answer how citizen journalism and

    participatory journalism as well as an increasing range of information today have

    affected the professional identity and professional lives of journalists. In addition to

    this, study how journalists today respond to these changes.

    Material/Method: The study is based on Deuze’s theories about journalistic ideals,

    Jenkins’ theories about convergence culture, and on theories about professionalization

    and de-professionalization based on Nygren, Wiik and Torstendahl’s theories. The

    study is based on eight interviews with professional journalists, four employed

    journalists and four freelance journalists. The results are analysed based on a broad

    theoretical framework.

    Main results: The results of this survey show that the role of the professional

    journalist is extremely complex, with a strong ideological basis that fundamentally

    influences the journalist's view of the profession and of him- or herself. The survey

    shows that the journalist role is changing and how important the identification as a

    journalist still is. Furthermore, the survey shows that the role is being redefined. The

    role consists of two levels, an ideological level and a more practical level. The survey

    shows how these two levels are in harmony, but also on a collision course, and how

    journalists seek to clarify their ideology to distinguish themselves from others, but

    also how they actually adapt the ideals on a more practical level.

    In summary, despite a de-professionalization of the profession, the journalists keep

    the journalistic ideals very high, although they constantly redefine their role, as well

    as the ideals. They see their role as an aid to guide the readers, rather than a traditional

    journalist, although they still cling to a traditional perception of the ideal journalist.

    The Cultural Characteristics in China's Official Online Tourism Advertisements2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Tourism advertising is an important approach in providing information about tourism destinations and in attracting potential customers, and in this process, particular cultural factors are usually conveyed. In this thesis, the main intention was to describe the cultural factors reflected in advertising and discover the role that Chinese cultural identity plays in China’s official Internet tourism advertisements to overseas markets using a theoretical framework of diverse cultural issues. The objects of this study are the official tourism advertisements from China National Tourist Office’s (CNTO) websites.

    The author researched Chinese cultural characteristics and tried to connect them with the expressional tendencies in tourism advertisements. Using a quantitative content analysis method, the most frequent cultural symbol in advertising was discovered as the basis and general image of the online tourism advertisements. Then the author discussed the external manifestations of cultural factors in tourism advertising in detail and analysed the internal cultural values behind them using the qualitative discourse analysis method. The main conclusions of this study indicated that the most representative cultural characteristic of Chinese culture in tourism advertising is a high-context cultural feature; in addition, at present traditional ideology in Chinese society, such as Confucianism and Taoism, was still being conveyed in tourism advertising. In general, Chinese cultural traditions influenced tourism advertising expressions, both in external manifestations and internal connotations.

    Overview of European Audience Research. Research report from the COST Action IS0906 Transforming Audiences, Transforming Societies2011Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The state of audience research in European countries is not yet properly charted due to the fragmented and varied nature of the field. Obtaining an overview was both an objective of the Action in its own right, and a precondition of other achievements. For the first meeting of the Working Groups (WG) in Lisbon (November 11-13, 2010), the Steering Group (SG) of the Action invited the members to submit short national essays that review existing and emerging audience research in their respective countries. The reviews could be theoretical, topical, methodological, empirical or institutional. Most of them were presented in the WG sessions of the Lisbon meeting. The SG requested some revisions or additional essays in order to better cover the countries for which the essays where too focused, or to cover the countries that were not represented at all. In total, 58 essays covering the 30 participating countries were delivered and are available on the Action website at: http://www.cost-transforming-audiences.eu. This research report brings together these 59 essays as well as a tentative synthesis in the concluding section.

    The Postmodern Challenge to Journalism: Strategies for Constructing a Trustworthy Identity2012In: Rethinking journalism. Trust and Participation in a Transformed News Landscape / [ed] Chris Peters, Marcel Broersma, London: Routledge , 2012, p. 60-71Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Journalism scholars have noted a steady rise of skepticism among the public in the latter half of the past century. "The passing of the 'High Modernism'" of journalism as Daniel Hallin (1992: 14) famously put it, shows in a loss of faith in journalists (Kovach & Rosenstiel: 41) and a seeming dissolution of journalists' covenant with the public (Cappella and Jamieson, 1997). But the era of 'postmodernism' (McQuail, 1994) or 'liquid modernity' (Bauman, 2000) in journalism also fundamentally impacted upon journalists' self-perception - or the trust they have in their profession and their own practices. The "absence of a sense of doubt or contradiction," (Hallin: idem) on the part of journalists has in the past decades been challenged in the face of such developments as commercialization, cross-media mergers and the rise of new media that deprive the journalist of his/her privileged position as "society's truth-teller" (McNair 1998: 71). Since the above mentioned developments have contributed to the erosion of the status (and thus legitimation) of journalists (Hallin, 2006) and have evoked the claim of 'the end of journalism' in a traditional sense, we may expect journalists to invest more effort in generating trust in their profession both for the audience and themselves. In order to analyze these strategies we will take a discourse-theoretical perspective on journalism that regards the latter as a discourse centered on a number of privileged signifiers that are connected up in a hegemonic discursive formation. This theoretical model -mainly opened up by Foucault, Laclau and Mouffe and ?i?ek - allows us to analyze how this journalistic hegemonic discursive formation deals with so-called dislocations, i.e. events that destabilize and de-legitimize the dominant discourse by introducing elements that cannot be domesticated within its framework. More in particular we will be looking at how a number of the core journalistic values are being discredited in the era of 'liquid modernity'. Examples are the broad changes in the possibilities for circulating news (that challenge journalist's autonomy), in the attitude towards the representation of reality (that contest journalist's modernist bias towards truth (Zelizer 2004:112)) and the introduction of commercial imperatives in news production (that delegitimize journalist's claims on bringing service to the public). The actions journalists engage in as a means to deal with these changes and reaffirm their own status and professionalism in the face of challenge have been researched in a number of ways. These have, for instance, been investigated from a macro-perspective as actions of 'paradigmatic repair' (Reese 1990) that are directed at reaffirming the ideological model(s) of journalism (see Carpentier 2008 en 2009). Tightly interlinked with this are studies that address the meso-level of the newspaper institution (see Reese 1990; Tuchman 1972). This article proposes to look at the normalizing strategies that are at work at the level of the journalistic identity. In order to analyze these strategies we will turn to a specific field, namely that of online news, as this is one of the sites where the threats sketched out above have forcefully come to the surface. It is exactly at such moments of threat that the truth-claims and strategies of generating trust are most clearly at work. By investigating online journalism, we wish to shed light on three discursive strategies employed in reaction to these threats: A first strategy is the marginalization of rivaling media (through the logics of the constitutive outside) which disarticulates online journalists from the discourse of 'good' and 'professional' journalism. Secondly, mainstream journalism has tried to maintain its professional identity by normalizing the mainstream online environment which entails limiting the possibilities offered by the online environment and incorporating alternative voices in the mainstream model. Thirdly, we witness a rearticulation of the nodal points embedded in the mainstream discourse. We may here think of a tendency towards foregrounding the journalist as individual and thus of reinforcing his claims on trustworthiness. Of importance here is also the increasingly interpretative role taken on by the journalist (Hallin 1992: 19) and the growing importance of the public image of journalists in blogs and other writings of an autobiographical nature. We will contend that these all link up with a reinforcement of journalistic myths that (re)surface in the face of 'the end of journalism'.

    Unheard Voices: Representation of Roma in Swedish and German Media Discourse2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the prevalence of Roma voices in Swedish and German newspaper articles specifically about Roma individuals or groups. It explores the importance of discursive self-representation for minority and marginalised groups, and evaluates the level of participation afforded to the Roma in three of the largest newspapers in each country, across a varied political spectrum. Sweden and Germany both profess to be seeking solutions to the widespread discrimination against Roma within their own countries and across Europe, and therefore provide interesting comparative case studies, both due to their historical relationship with Roma populations and in light of contemporary events. This study uses quantitative analysis to determine the percentage of newspaper articles about Roma that include a Roma voice and qualitative analysis to investigate the variety of voices included. The findings are then analysed using theories regarding European identity-building, Orientalism, and media analysis. The thesis concludes with a reflection upon the impact of under- or misrepresentation on minority groups, and includes recommendations for the improvement of representation and participation of marginalised voices in media discourse.

    Abstract [en]

    The essay takes a historical reflection on the identity of the intellectual as a starting point, highlighting four key debates that have tried to provide meaning to this identity. These debates concern the intellectual's class position, the intellectual's connection to other classes and social groups, the location of the intellectual and the relationship with the university, and the publicness of the intellectual. These debates then feed into a more engaged reflection on the desirability of intellectuals to intervene in a society characterised by three types of crisis - the crisis of representative democracy, the economic crisis and the crisis of mimesis - investigating how their rethorics can be transformed into counter-hegemonic discourses. Although it is argued that the production of new ideological projects is not straightforward - because of the complex relationship between agency and discursive structures, the evenly difficult relationship between complexity and simplicity, and the ontological issues triggered by the crisis of mimesis - the essay pleads for the establishment of networks of intellectuals, driven by principles of value centrality, modular collaboration and non-essentialism, that allow them to critically rethink our core social structures, in order to establish new horizons to imagine social change.

    Articulating participation and agonism: A case study on the agonistic re-articulations of the Cyprus Problem in the broadcasts of the community broadcaster MYCYradio2015In: The Cyprus Review - A Journal of Social, Economic and Political Issues, ISSN 1015-2881, Vol. 27, no 1, p. 129-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article starts with a discussion on the material and discursive components of conflicttransformation, arguing for the need to complement the dominance of material andpsychological approaches with a more discursive-cultural approach. This plea contextualisesthe analysis of a series of broadcasts of the Cypriot web community radio station, MYCYradio.Supported by the Mouffe’s (discourse-) theoretical conceptualisations of antagonism andagonism, the analysis focuses on the broadcasts of three MYCYradio shows. For each show, 10episodes, broadcast between September and November 2013 are analysed, using discoursetheoreticalanalysis. Through this analysis, four main re-articulations are identified in theMYCYradio shows: the overcoming/decentralising of the divide, the deconstruction of the self(and the enemy), the reconfiguration of time, and the elaboration of the cost of the conflict.The analysis shows that community media, despite the many different problems they face,have particular abilities to support agonistic discourses.

    Beyond the Ladder of Participation: An Analytical Toolkit for the Critical Analysis of Participatory Media Processes2016In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 70-88Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Participatory research is facing three challenges—how to deal with the theoretisation and conceptualisation of participation; how to support the research with analytical models; and how the evaluate the research outcomes. This article aims to address these three problems by distinguishing two main approaches (a sociological and a political) in participatory theory and developing a four-level and 12-step analytical model that functions within the political approach. In this analytical model, a series of key concepts are used: process, field, actor, decision-making moment and power. The normative-evaluative problem is addressed by reverting to the critical perspective to evaluate the societal desirability of particular participatory intensities. This critical perspective—potentially—adds a 13th and final normative layer to the analytical model.
