    Gazing at Pudong - 'With a Drink in Your Hand' : Time Travel, Mediation, and Multisensuous Immersion in the Future City of Shanghai2007In: The Senses and Society, ISSN 1745-8927 , Vol. 2, no 2, p. 155-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Chinese mega city of Shanghai is currently undergoing a radical restructuring of its infrastructure and urban fabric and aspires to become a future city and a world center. This article delineates an encapsulation of a future gaze in the city among cosmopolitan visitors, mediated through travel reporting, travel guides and expatriate websites. Shanghai is a multi-sensuous and highly engaging geography. The city invokes a future gaze which, in contrast with the alleged detachment of the tourist gaze, has to be interpreted in terms of an immersion of the whole body, and in relation to acts of drinking and eating in the chronotopes of nostalgic dwelling – the mansion garden and the restaurant. In addition, futurology in Shanghai is dependent upon a craze for history and as travelers engage with and perform a collective memory of the Golden Age of the twenties and thirties, the city enacts a specific experience of time travel.  This article shows how analyzing the intersensorium may contribute to a more critical evaluation of how visitors make sense of and contribute to the transformation in the city and further probes how sensory response, sentiment, memory and mediation work together.

    Transitional times: ‘New Media’ – Novel Histories and Trajectories2009Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The alluring traits of ‘new media’ have spurred new research interests. This article discusses the discourse of ‘new media’ from the vantage point of critically reviewing three emissions from MIT Press during the years 1999-2003 within the series Media in Transition, as to the fundamental concepts used and introduced in these works. It cautions against any reductionist perspective on new media forms, and while highlighting the many merits of writing new media histories, the article shows that this discussion, also nascent within an interdisciplinary Swedish research environment, also carries other important features with implications for the relationships between communication and (time)space. It concludes that it is not enough to acknowledge that ‘new media’ call for a deep awareness of the historicity of the technological imaginary; deeper understandings of transitions in media also call for thoroughly expounding the socio-spatial ramifications of communication.

    Travels in Thirdspace: Experiential Suspense in Mediaspace – the Case of America (un)known2008In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 343-363Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What happens to people’s relationship to places that have been subjected to a high degree of mediation? The aim of this article is to engage in current debates on mediaspace and the mediatization of travelling, by offering an empirical and conceptual qualification to this discussion, through a study of the experiences of Swedes travelling in the US in the 1950s. This paper shows that in understanding the relationship between communication and geography it is vital that we focus on the level of experience and on what Edward Soja following Henri Lefebvre calls thirdspace. The argument is that while the journeys were scripted, travellers’ ’knowledge’ of the land was seriously challenged as they ended up in thirdspace suspense, displaced in a country which was both fiction and fact, known and unknown. Studying the intersection of travelling and mediation will render new insights into the meanings that mediation carries which pushes beyond common polarisations: mediation has to be conceived in terms of more than either powerful images or playfulness/resistance. As mediation interlaces with the imagined and the lived, ambivalences, dissonances and incommensurable affections toward the places at hand are generated.

    Notions of America: Swedish Perspectives2004Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Americanization is sometimes seen as a unilateral and undesirable invasion of cultural influences and products originating in America. This anthology suggests instead that, although countries in Europe receive, adapt, and transform American products, images, or symbols, we also leave much aside along with a real sense of the historical and cultural complexity of a nation like America.

    It is this complexity that this book wishes to point to, with scholarly essays on Americanization, American history, and American literature presented at an international American Studies conference held in the English Department at Sodertorn University College (Sweden).

    This anthology offers a variety of learning opportunities and a chance to sample the work of scholars across a number of subject areas. Challenging all of us to venture beyond the borders of our own disciplines, moreover, these essays invite questions about what we do as academics, compelling us to think deeply about our profession, our educational aims, our personal commitments, and how aims and commitments are inevitably rooted in social and political networks.
