    Classification at the Swedish alcohol monopoly: A study of the classification system of beverages at Systembolaget2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis considers the beverage classification at Systembolaget, the Swedish alcohol monopoly. In order to help customers with the pairing of food and beverages, Systembolaget has developed a classification system with three classification elements: the flavour type, which describes the overall character of the beverage; the flavour graphics, which indicate levels of flavour experiences; and the food symbols, which are pictures that indicate various kinds of food. This thesis studies how Systembolaget classifies their beverages and how Systembolaget employees use classification elements in customer interactions. This study made use of genre theory as conceived by Jack Andersen and the concept of classification in context as conceived by Jens-Erik Mai. Genre theory informed the method.

    The study consisted of an interview with product informers at Systembolaget and a survey sent out to store employees. The interview revealed that Systembolaget’s classification system is standardised and the classification of beverages is methodological. The classification elements are assigned sensorially. Assigned flavour graphics affect the choice of flavour type. Food symbols are determined through the flavour graphics and flavour type. The survey revealed that store employees primarily use flavour types and flavour graphics and do so practically, by recommending beverages, or pedagogically, with the goal of teaching customer about beverages and Systembolaget's classification. The food symbols are not useful for those with in-depth knowledge of wine and food pairings but are sometimes relied upon by customers. Employees’ use of classification elements was dependent on their genre knowledge. The practical and pedagogical approaches were genres of activity that realised the classification into viable tools rather than just descriptive elements. This is a two years master’s thesis in Archive, Library and Museum studies.

    Title: The effects of digitization on the Swedish record labels – The record labels viewpoint and significance in a digitalized world

    Authors: Tyra Ahlerup and Elsa Bynke

    The past twenty years has brought transformative changes to major industries due to the digitalization. The music industry suffered immensely from these changes when illegal file sharing made the record sales drop which resulted in a crisis for the industry and the record labels. The music industry survived and so did the record labels but the entire music economy has changed, thus this thesis aims to examine how the digitalization has affected the swedish record labels and their position in the industry. This will be discussed and examined through Peter Tschmucks theory on the four traditional central processes of a record label, as well as Patrik Wikströms theory on how the music economy has changed. To collect material on how representatives from record labels perceive the changes, difficulties and opportunities that the digitalization has led to, interviews were held with four record label representatives as well as two interest organizations for swedish record labels. The collected material was analysed through a qualitative content analysis that focused on the changes regarding four traditional central processes of a record label; searching for talent, recording and production, marketing and distribution. It is clear that all of the these four processes has changed and that the swedish record labels don't hold the same control over the music industry as before since the distribution is no longer in their hands and recording and production has become more accessible. Thus, the organisational structure of record labels has changed and they are no longer purely music companies but more marketing specialists that help artists to break through in the enormous stream of music that is produced today.

    Everything That’s Wrong with E-Book Statistics: A Comparison of E-Book Packages2012In: Proceedings of the Charleston Library Conference: Accentuate the Positive / [ed] Beth R. Bernhardt, Leah H. Hinds, Katina P. Strauch, Purdue University Press, 2012, p. 216-220Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This poster presentation highlights the problems that exist in defining “a download” for e-books. Even though there is a COUNTER code of practice, a download can still be defined as either a page, chapter or title use. Many e-book publishers don’t follow COUNTER at all, and then the differences are even bigger. Libraries face many problems because of this, and this poster aims to raise awareness on the problems concerning analyzing e-book usage statistics.

    Från bruk till bevarande: arbetet med en bevarandestrategi för Uppsala universitetsbibliotek2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsala universitetsbibliotek (UUB) har under det senaste året arbetat med att ta fram en bevarandestrategi för att förtydliga bibliotekets bevarandeuppdrag. I denna rapport beskrivs arbetet med att ta fram strategin, syfte och innehåll i strategin och hur den kopplar mot den nationella utvecklingen inom bevarande.

    Strategin förtydligar att biblioteket har ett stort ansvar för att bevara och tillgängliggöra tryckta och digitala samlingar som ska vara till nytta för studier och forskning idag och i framtiden. Strategin visar på de olika fysiska aspekterna av bevarande såsom effektiva och säkra magasin, säker och försiktig hantering, konservering och bokvård, men betonar också vikten av sökbarhet och tillgänglighet genom t.ex. god metadata och digitalisering. Strategin innehåller riktlinjer för bevarande för vetenskapliga tidskrifter, monografier, doktorsavhandlingar, specialsamlingar och källmaterial för framtida forskning.

    Bevarandestrategin fastställdes av Biblioteksnämnden den 24 september 2018 och finns tillgänglig på bibliotekets webbsida (www.ub.uu.se).

    Hur kan bibliotek och förlag gemensamt möta utmaningar kring svenska e-böcker?2015In: Infotrend, ISSN 1653-0225, Vol. 67, no 2, p. 4-13Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag är det i princip omöjligt för akademiska bibliotek att kunna ge sina användare tillgång till svenska e-böcker. Svenska förlag tycks vara osäkra på hur e-böcker ska hanteras när de säljs till bibliotek och är oroliga för att mista intäkter. Bibliotek och förlag står långt ifrån varandra i frågan och ingen enkel lösning är nära.

    Denna artikel beskriver de utmaningar som finns när det gäller svenska e-böcker. Vad har gjorts hittills? Vilka roller och vilket ansvar har bibliotek respektive förlag för att lösa dessa utmaningar? Hur kan vi hitta sätt att arbeta bättre tillsammans för att hitta en lösning som alla blir nöjda med?

    Arbetet med e-hälsa och digitalisering inom sjukvården i Region Uppsala2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    E-hälsa och digitalisering blir allt mer en självklar del inom vården då samhället digitaliseras mer och mer. Regeringen har satt upp en vision om att Sverige ska vara bäst i världen på att använda e-hälsa och digitaliseringens möjligheter år 2025; Vision e-hälsa 2025. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur enheten för e-hälsa i Region Uppsala arbetar med att informera, utbilda och motivera vårdgivare gällande e-hälsa och digitalisering, samt hur de förankrar regeringens uppsatta mål; Vision e-hälsa 2025. En kvalitativ studie har genomförts som bygger på dokumentanalyser och tre intervjuer med medarbetare på enheten för e-hälsa. Empirin har analyserats utifrån Weicks (1995) teori om meningsskapande. Slutsatsen är att enheten för e-hälsa har flera satsningar med syfte att informera, utbilda och motivera vårdgivare och de följer egenskaper från teorin när detta arbete sker. Bland annat använder de sig av ett webbaserat spel, eHälospelet, som utbildar vårdgivare till att nyttja digitaliseringens möjligheter. Ytterligare utbildas och motiveras vårdgivare genom e-tjänstelyftet där så kallade e-tjänstecoacher agerar ambassadörer för att våga använda nya tekniker och arbetssätt som har tillkommit vid digitaliseringen av vården. Vårdgivare informeras och motiveras även genom att ta del av information och framsteg i digitalisering via seminarier och nyhetsbrev. Visionen i sig är inget styrande dokument i arbetet med digitaliseringen men den finns där som inspiration. Enheten för e-hälsa i Region Uppsala jobbar inte aktivt med att förankra visionen i dagsläget. För att visionen ska kunna bli en viktigare del i arbetet behöver den brytas ner och skapa värde för varje vårdgivare. Vårdgivarna måste bli berörda för att vilja ändra arbetssätt och börja jobba för en förändring i verksamheten.

    Scrum i ett småskaligt projekt2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Den agila utvecklingsmetoden scrum är en erkänd metodik inom systemutveckling som möjliggör noggrann utvärdering, testning och iteration inom utvecklingsprojekt. Scrum appliceras i projekt där scrumteamet normalt består av 3-9 personer. Vi presenterar i detta examensarbete resultat från en deltagande observation i ett småskaligt, tidsintensivt utvecklingsprojekt. Vi beskriver konsekvenserna av att med ett team bestående av två personer applicera scrum i ett utvecklingsprojekt med scrumartefakter såsom sprinter, dagliga scrummöten och produktbackloggar.

    An attempt to nuance the understanding of professional reports in archaeology2015In: GL16 Conference Proceedings, Amsterdam, 2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Professional (i.e. extra-academic) contract archaeology is an internationally widespread practice contributing significantly to the archaeological literature. However, professional knowledge production in archaeology, and most notably the professional report genre, is at times described as problematic. The problem descriptions are ambiguous and can be grouped under at least three different topics: concerns for content quality and practical accessibility, concerns for the comparably low degree of analytical and theoretical synthesizing in reports and concerns for lack of mutual knowledge transfer between academic archaeologists and professional archaeologists. Technical issues of access are to an increasing extent being solved. Format standardizations are also developing. Hence the report genre becomes more accessible, and the content more readable and informative. Yet articulations of attitudes toward the genre in archaeology text books and journal articles remain focused on the genre’s problems. The aim of my ongoing dissertation research is to nuance the understanding of the professional report genre in archaeology. I do so by analyzing factors shaping reporting as it takes place in the intersection between academic norms, professional values and market logics. I argue an improved genre understanding is crucial to diminish cultural issues of access to the report literature, and also as a basis for development of reporting practices. In1the dissertation research I analyze (1) perceptions about the report genre in archaeology literature, (2) information policy regulating reporting in archaeology, (3) how report writers and county board professionals interpret the reporting and report auditing work tasks and (4) the frames of reference report writers bring into reporting. The aim of this paper is to explicate the research design consisting of four sub-studies, to briefly report on findings from study no. 4, and to discuss preliminary, partial results from study no. 2.

    Beyond information policy: Conflicting documentation ideals in extra-academic knowledge making practices2016In: Journal of Documentation, ISSN 0022-0418, E-ISSN 1758-7379, Vol. 72, no 4, p. 674-695Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore and explicate documentation ideals parallel to information policy, and by means of this analysis demonstrate how the concept “documentation ideals” is an analytical tool for engaging with political and institutional contexts of information practices.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper is based on a case study of documentation ideals in a debate about quality in archaeological documentation. The methodology draws on idea analysis, and on the science and technology studies’ controversy studies approach.

    Findings – The paper explicates three documentation ideals, how these ideals allocate responsibility for documentation to different actors, how the ideals assign roles to practitioners, and how the ideals point to different beneficiaries of the documentation. Furthermore, the analysis highlights ideas about two different means to reach the documentation ideals.

    Research limitations/implications – The case’s debate reflects opinions of Northern European professionals.

    Social implications – The paper illuminates how documentation ideals tweak and even contest formal information policy in claims on the documentation and on the practitioners doing documentation.

    Originality/value – Documentation ideal analysis is crucial as a complement to formal information policy analysis and to analysis guided by practice theory in attempts to understand the contexts of information practices and documentation, insights central for developing information literacies.

    Grey literature – grey sources?: Nuancing the view on professional documentation: the case of Swedish archaeology2015In: Journal of Documentation, ISSN 0022-0418, E-ISSN 1758-7379, Vol. 71, no 6, p. 1158-1182Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This study aims at nuancing the perception about professional documentation (a.k.a. ‘grey literature’), assuming perception of documentation being a cultural aspect of accessibility.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The study explores variations within the archaeological report genre through a bibliometric analysis of source use. Source characteristics are explored as well as correlations between report authors and source originators. Statistical frequency distribution is complemented by a correspondence analysis and a k-Means cluster analysis to explore patterns. The patterns are interpreted as ‘frames of references’ and related to circumstances for archaeological work. The study also discusses source representations.

    Findings

    The source use patterns reveal a latent variation, not visible in the general analysis: a professional/academic frame of reference (mainly among authors affiliated with incorporated businesses and sole proprietorships) and an administrative frame of reference (mainly among authors affiliated with government agencies, foundations and member associations) emerge.

    Research limitations/implications

    The study focuses on Swedish field evaluation reports. Future research could 1) test the results in relation to other types of reports, and 2) go beyond the document perspective to explore source use in documentation practices.

    Social implications

    The results on variations in frames of references among report writers have implication for report readers and user. The results should also be considered in archaeology management and policy-making. On the level of source representation the results call for clarifications of vague representations and possibly omitted sources.

    Originality/value

    This study contextualises archaeological information use and focuses on variations in professional archaeology which has received little previous research attention. The bibliometric approach complements previous qualitative studies of archaeological information.

    Research outside academia?: An analysis of resources in extra-academic report writing2016In: Proceedings of the 79th ASIS&T Annual Meeting: Creating Knowledge, Enhancing Lives through Information & Technology / [ed] Andrew Grove, Diane H. Sonnenwald, Lauren Harrison et. al., Silver Spring: Association for Information Science and Technology , 2016, Vol. 53Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A significant part of all research takes place in extraacademic organizations. Practitioner researchers often present their results in publications different from those in academia, e.g. in reports, sometimes (and here) referred to as “gray literature”. Gray literature is increasingly available online. However, availability does not mean that reports are exploited to their full potential in research. Disciplines like archaeology have substantial problems with the scholarly communication and knowledge sharing between extraacademic and academic research. This paper approaches this problem from a report-user perspective. For the benefit of potential report users’ gray literature literacies, reportwriting practices are analyzed by means of practice theory. Qualitative interviews with six practitioner researchers in Swedish archaeology firms make up the material. The analysis focuses on how report writers draw on regulative, institutional, and infrastructural resources in their practices. Based on the findings about the practices in which reports are written and become informative, the paper presents seven suggestions supporting report users’ potential to critically analyze and use report content. The results contribute to the information science field with insights into extra-academic information practices, and as input in a wider critical discussion of the information-related conditions for research outside academia.

    Resources for scholarly documentation in professional service organizations: A study of Swedish development-led archaeology report writing2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This information studies dissertation deals with the problem that results from research outside academia risk to receive little or no attention if communicated through reports, instead of in mainstream academic genres like research journal articles. The case in focus is Swedish development-led (DL) archaeology, i.e. state regulated archaeology preceding land development. Swedish DL archaeology is organized as a semi-regulated market. The organizations competing on the market are professional service organizations selling research services to land developers. Regional government departments, county administrative boards, function as intermediaries setting up procurement-like processes.

    In previous research on archaeological documentation, the problem with non-use of reports has been described as depending on cultural issues of access, possible to solve if individuals make efforts to communicate and use extra-academic results. This dissertation offers an alternative definition of the problem, highlighting a different set of solutions. The aim is to further the understanding of how the distribution of research duties to professional service organizations affects the scholarly documentation in Swedish archaeology. The aim is met through identification, operationalization and analysis of resources available to report writing DL archaeology practitioners, and an analysis of how practitioners draw on these resources. The results further the understanding of how reports are shaped within the DL archaeology institution. In view of these results, efforts to solve issues of access should target the organization of research in the archaeology discipline, and specifically how scholarly documentation is governed on the archaeology market.

    The dissertation draws on science and technology studies, practice theory, and document theory for the design of the study of documentation resources and contexts in extra-academic research. A mixed methods approach is applied to capture regulative, institutional, and infrastructural resources, and practitioners’ use thereof. Dissertation papers I-III contain analyses of concrete instantiations of the resources: information policy, documentation ideals, and information source use. The fourth paper presents an analysis of how practitioners draw on these resources in their everyday report writing. The dissertation concerns archaeology specifically, but serves as grounds to inquire into the premises for scholarly documentation in other areas of extra-academic research and knowledge-making as well.

    Abstract [en]

    The introduction of digital data capturing and management technologies has transformed information practices in archaeology. Digital documentation and digital infrastructures are integrated in archaeologists' daily work now more than ever. International and national institutions and projects have contributed to the development of digital archiving and curation practices. Because knowledge production in archaeology depends heavily on documentation and information dissemination, and on retrieval of past documentation, the question of how information is managed is profoundly intertwined with the possibilities for knowledge production. Regulations at different levels articulate demands and expectations from the emerging digital information practices, but how are these different regulations coordinated, and do they support archaeological knowledge production?

    In this article we look into the state of information policy - the sum of principles guiding decisions about information - in archaeology and related areas. The aim of the article is to shed light on how information policy directs practice in archaeology, and to show that analysis of such policies is therefore vital. Information policy in legislation and guidelines in Swedish archaeology serves as a case study, and examples from development-led archaeology and the museum sector illustrate how information policies have varied roles across different heritage sectors. There are historical and local trajectories in the policy documents specific to Sweden, but the discussion shows that the emergence of Swedish policies have many parallels with processes in other countries. The article provides recommendations for information policy development for archaeology and related areas.

    2015 (Swedish)In: Journal of Documentation, ISSN 0022-0418, E-ISSN 1758-7379, Vol. 71, no 6, p. 1158-1182Article in journal (Refereed) Published
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This study aims at nuancing the perception about professional documentation (a.k.a. ‘grey literature’), assuming perception of documentation being a cultural aspect of accessibility.

    Design/methodology/approach

    The study explores variations within the archaeological report genre through a bibliometric analysis of source use. Source characteristics are explored as well as correlations between report authors and source originators. Statistical frequency distribution is complemented by a correspondence analysis and a k-Means cluster analysis to explore patterns. The patterns are interpreted as ‘frames of references’ and related to circumstances for archaeological work. The study also discusses source representations.

    Findings

    The source use patterns reveal a latent variation, not visible in the general analysis: a professional/academic frame of reference (mainly among authors affiliated with incorporated businesses and sole proprietorships) and an administrative frame of reference (mainly among authors affiliated with government agencies, foundations and member associations) emerge.

    Research limitations/implications

    The study focuses on Swedish field evaluation reports. Future research could 1) test the results in relation to other types of reports, and 2) go beyond the document perspective to explore source use in documentation practices.

    Social implications

    The results on variations in frames of references among report writers have implication for report readers and user. The results should also be considered in archaeology management and policy-making. On the level of source representation the results call for clarifications of vague representations and possibly omitted sources.

    Originality/value

    This study contextualises archaeological information use and focuses on variations in professional archaeology which has received little previous research attention. The bibliometric approach complements previous qualitative studies of archaeological information.

    Abstract [en]

    A significant part of all research takes place in extra-academic organizations. Practitioner researchers often present their results in publications different from those in academia, e.g. in reports, sometimes (and here) referred to as “gray literature”. Gray literature is increasingly available online. However, availability does not mean that reports are exploited to their full potential in research. Disciplines like archaeology have substantial problems with the scholarly communication and knowledge sharing between extra-academic and academic research. This paper approaches this problem from a report-user perspective. For the benefit of potential report users’ gray literature literacies, report-writing practices are analyzed by means of practice theory. Qualitative interviews with six practitioner researchers in Swedish archaeology firms make up the material. The analysis focuses on how report writers draw on regulative, institutional, and infrastructural resources in their practices. Based on the findings about the practices in which reports are written and become informative, the paper presents seven suggestions supporting report users’ potential to critically analyze and use report content. The results contribute to the information science field with insights into extra-academic information practices, and as input in a wider critical discussion of the information-related conditions for research outside academia.

    A Neo-Documentalist Lens for Exploring the Premises of Disciplinary Knowledge Making2016In: Proceedings from the Document Academy, ISSN 2473-215X, Vol. 3, no 1, p. 1-23, article id 5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to demonstrate how documentation analysis with a neo-documentalist lens can help us explore variations (and stabilities) in conceptions and materialities of documents, as intertwined with disciplinary and sub-disciplinary practices of informing and knowing. Drawing on documentation theory, and with previous research on archaeological documentation as a background, by means of autoethnographic vignettes we explore contemporary conceptions of documentation in five areas in or related to archaeology (Intra-site 3D documentation, Development-led archaeology, Aggregating documentation for use outside the organization, Mediating documentation – or documentation mediation, and Documenting and displaying archaeology in a changing environment). Digitization, and how digitization has spurred renegotiations of what counts as documentation, functions as a common denominator discussed in all of the vignettes. The analysis highlights simultaneously ongoing renegotiations of documentation serving each area’s unique epistemic purposes, and pushing document materialities in different directions. This operationalization of documentation analysis creates an understanding for intra-disciplinary variations in documentation but is importantly also a practical tool to uncover documentation-related premises of disciplinary knowledge-making. This tool can be applied for example in processes of information policy development (regulating what purposes documentation should serve, and what it should be like), information systems design (e.g. for creation and communication of documentation), and infrastructure development (e.g. for preservation and accessibility of documentation).

    Abstract [en]

    The rapid expansion of contract archaeology as the primary sector of archaeological knowledge-making in many developed countries make it an illustrative example of which effects the organization and re-organization of a particular knowledge-producing sector affects the conditions for how knowledge can be made. The proliferation of contracted extra-mural work in different countries has shown the importance of adequate guidelines and careful consideration of how and what to regulate to reach desirable outcomes. In addition, contract archaeology provides insights into the difficulties of keeping together extra- and intra-mural knowledge-making enterprises even when they share the same outspoken objectives.

    Abstract [en]

    Research takes place in a variety of organizations throughout the society. In contrast to university-based research, considerably less has been written about research and its informational premises and conditions outside academia. This introductory chapter introduces the edited volume on research outside academia and asks what is research, who are engaged in it and why, how knowledge making works, what challenges and opportunities there are, how research informs and how it is informed by different actors and sources in extra-academic institutions.

    Information Policy for (Digital) Information in Archaeology: current state and suggestions for development2015In: Internet Archaeology, ISSN 1363-5387, E-ISSN 1363-5387, no 40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The introduction of digital data capturing and management technologies has transformed information practices in archaeology. Digital documentation and digital infrastructures are integrated in archaeologists' daily work now more than ever. International and national institutions and projects have contributed to the development of digital archiving and curation practices. Because knowledge production in archaeology depends heavily on documentation and information dissemination, and on retrieval of past documentation, the question of how information is managed is profoundly intertwined with the possibilities for knowledge production. Regulations at different levels articulate demands and expectations from the emerging digital information practices, but how are these different regulations coordinated, and do they support archaeological knowledge production?

    In this article we look into the state of information policy - the sum of principles guiding decisions about information - in archaeology and related areas. The aim of the article is to shed light on how information policy directs practice in archaeology, and to show that analysis of such policies is therefore vital. Information policy in legislation and guidelines in Swedish archaeology serves as a case study, and examples from development-led archaeology and the museum sector illustrate how information policies have varied roles across different heritage sectors. There are historical and local trajectories in the policy documents specific to Sweden, but the discussion shows that the emergence of Swedish policies have many parallels with processes in other countries. The article provides recommendations for information policy development for archaeology and related areas.

    Digital divide eller digital opportunity i Anacostia High School, Washington D.C.: en studie baserad på sistaårselever i High School2007Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    Purpose/Aim: The goal of this thesis is to examine access and knowledge computers and the Internet among the senior-year students of Anacostia High School. Do the students of this facility have the same opportunity as the residents from better socioeconomical backgrounds or are they being excluded from the technology?

    Material/Method: To approach the thesis goal I have used a quantitative method. More specifically, a questionnaire was handed out to the senior year students at Anacostia High School.

    Main results: The study has shown that most of the students of Anacostia had in some way access to computers and Internet. Most of the students asked had the access of computer and Internet at home. Few of the students whom lacked computer and/or Internet access at home could access it from somewhere else. The study also showed that the High School of Anacostia had Internet access and computers. Even so, the students felt they didn’t have physical access to Internet and computers from school, because the demand was too big and the supply not enough. Therefore most of the student did not have the opportunity to use the computers and Internet at school.

    Abstract

    Title: From old rightwing-ghost to the new labour party – The new conservatives political communication during the Swedish election 2006

    Authors: Pontus Caresten

    Aim: The aim of the essay is to study how the conservative party communicated during the election campaign in 2006. I wish to find out how political parties work in todays society and how the communication has changed over time. To get relevant results I will also see how the theories and empirics interact. The purpose is further to illustrate the new conservatives’ campaign work from a senders point of view.

    Method/Material: I have chosen a qualitative method which consists of three interviews with relevant key persons. I also did an content analysis of the campaign material. In order to carry out the empirical study I chose to depart from existing theories and compare these with the empirics.

    Main results: The new conservatives have altered their political communication to fit todays society, and the market is increasingly important. The conservatives have gone though a major internal change since Fredrik Reinfeldt was elected to be head of the party. Today, the conservatives campaign work is professional and the party uses external experts to maximize the efficiency of the communication.

    Sociala medier i marknadsföring: En studie av modebranschen och teknik- och industribranschen2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    SammanfattningSociala medier växer som marknadsföringsverktyg och det är enligt forskare ett utmärkt sätt för företag att skapa dialog och bygga relationer med sina kunder. Flera tidigare studier som behandlar sociala medier och dess effekter har genomförts de senaste åren och det finns fortfarande ett stort intresse inom ämnet. Det vi har valt att undersöka är hur företag idag använder sig av sociala medier i sitt marknadsföringsarbete, vi har även valt att jämföra två olika branscher för att utöka kunskapen inom det redan utforskade området. Vi har därför valt att se på modebranschen och teknik- och industribranschen för att utreda om det finns skillnader mellan dessa när det kommer till arbetet med sociala medier. För att undersöka detta så har vi använt oss av kvalitativa intervjuer med fyra företag inom modebranschen och fyra företag inom teknik- och industribranschen. Vi har använt oss av primärkällor och sekundärkällor, där våra primära källor utgörs av våra kvalitativa intervjuer och våra sekundära källor är hämtade ur tryckta källor och elektroniska källor. Resultatet vi fick har lett oss fram till slutsatsen att modebranschen kan dra större nytta av att använda sig av sociala medier då de fyra företag vi intervjuat säljer en produkt, till skillnad från de fyra företag vi intervjuat inom teknik- och industribranschen som är tjänsteföretag. Modebranschen ser sociala medier som en mer naturlig del av marknadsföringen, medan teknik- och industribranschen är mer traditionell och använder sociala medier mer för att utveckla sin relationsmarknadsföring och även som en kundtjänstkanal. Modebranschen arbetar mycket med bloggar, kampanjer och tävlingar medan teknik- och industribranschen arbetar mycket med rekrytering via sociala medier. Båda branscher ser sociala medier som en ökande trend och förstår vikten av att synas i de forum där deras kunder verkar.

    Systemavveckling: En kartläggning av centrala begrepp samt vägledning till en systematisk avvecklingsprocess2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Organisationer står inför ständiga förändringar och det medför att organisationers IT-system behöver anpassas därefter. För att besvara dessa förändringar investeras det i nya IT-system. Dock prioriteras oftast inte hantering av de föregående systemen, så som systemavveckling. Systemavveckling behandlas ytterst lite i befintlig litteratur, till exempel hur en systematisk avvecklingsprocess skulle kunna genomföras. Utifrån detta utformades uppsatsens syfte att belysa ämnet systemavveckling och kartlägga centrala begrepp.

     

    För att uppnå syftet har två fallstudier genomförts samt en genomgång av befintlig litteratur. Uppsatsen har resulterat i en begreppsöversikt och en vägledande modell för att genomföra en systematisk systemavvecklingsprocess. Slutsatsen uppmanar till förändring i synen på ett systems livscykel, samt en utökad systemanalys vid förändringar gällande system.

    A call to arms. An essay on the role of the intellectual and the need for producing new imaginaries2014In: Javnost - The Public, ISSN 1318-3222, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 77-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    About Dislocations and Invitations: Deepening the Conceptualization of the Discursive-Material Knot2019In: Discourse, Culture and Organization: Inquiries into Relational Structures of Power / [ed] Tomas Marttila, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, p. 407-Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter engages in a discussion about the knotted relations between the discursive and the material, starting from the discourse-theoretical position developed by Laclau and Mouffe, which emphasizes the importance of the discursive as producing necessary but contingent frameworks of intelligentibility. Even if Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory acknowledges the importance of the material, this chapter also argues for a clearer development of the material’s capacity to intervene in the discursive. Two concepts are proposed to think this through further, namely, the dislocation and the invitation, where the former captures a more disruptive mechanism and the latter a more constructive mechanism. In the last part of the chapter, the workings of both concepts are illustrated in a case study on a Cypriot community media organization, called the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC). This case study shows how the counter-hegemonic project of the CCMC, with its materials, manages to disrupt the antagonistic-nationalist discourses that circulate on this island and is simultaneously disrupted because the discursive and material components of the CCMC assemblage do not let themselves be harnessed and encapsulated that easily either.

    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.

    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.
