    Innan döden inträffar: övervakningsbilder och brottsjournalistik2013In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 2, p. 8-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the construction of death in popular media's use of surveillance footage, and more specifically images depicting the time before death occurs. There are many explanations why these kinds of images of death seem to fit the media format: They are assumed to be authentic; they potentially produces a point of identification for spectators; and finally they represent the time before it is all too late – before death occurs. Hence, they paradoxically represent also hope.

    Medierad övervakning: En studie av övervakningens betydelser i svensk dagspress2009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis explores the use of surveillance images and discourses of surveillance in the Swedish press. Questions concerning surveillance appear frequently in the news today. The ongoing »War on Terror« has generated numerous news reports informing their audiences how surveillance technologies will protect society, prevent terrorist attacks, and ensure security. The purpose of the study is to examine representations of surveillance in Swedish newspapers, more specifically, how they use surveillance- and amateur images in their reporting. In order to carry this out, the thesis sets up two areas of concern: news on terrorism and news on police violence. The questions that produce the field of inquiry relate to how discourses of surveillance are articulated in text and image. They also concern construction of social identities related to reproduction of power relations, normality, and deviance. Research material used in this study consists of journalistic texts and visual images published in mainly four major Swedish newspapers; Aftonbladet, Expressen, Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet. A qualitative research strategy was undertaken inspired by discourse analysis. The analysis focuses on four major issues: representations of terrorists, intensified surveillance, victims, and representations of police violence. The analysis concentrates on surveillance images that were used by news media to visually represent the terrorists involved in the so called »London bombings« in 2005. The thesis also highlights how politicians and other experts become the predominant subjects who proclaim the need for a more modern, efficient, and enhanced surveillance technology. A further issue ofinterest concerns media representations of victims and especially how the construction of victims reproduces normality, and further, how victimisation is related to surveillance. The newspapers used amateur footage from ‘the bomb scene’ in ways that represent the victims, not as objects, but as active agents participating in an act of surveillance. How the public become represented as victims of the surveillance society is examined. Dystopic stories about negative aspects of surveillance including islamophobia and fear of intrusion of privacy emerge as major themes. Finally, the study seeks to connect surveillance to resistance. Different media events on police violence are discussed in the light of events that have been filmed by amateur video or surveillance cameras. Surveillance in a mediated context is a complex field with many different and contradicting meanings and connotations. However, it is clear that surveillance links up with security, resistance, power and control, intrusion of privacy, and above all, to the reproduction of social differences between Us and Them. The news media seems to promote a public discourse of fear, which may contribute to legitimisation of both present and future demands for intensified surveillance. Nonetheless, mediated surveillance may also help to resist and challenge power hierarchies in society and promote social change.

    Visibility and surveillance in a hybrid media culture2013In: Hybrid media culture: sensing place in a world of flows / [ed] Simon Lindgren, London: Routledge, 2013, p. 34-50Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article provides a theoretical discussion of the relationship between visibility and surveillance in the context of digital media from three intersecting perspectives. As its starting point the chapter takes the concept of the panoptic gaze to discuss how new media platforms can be understood as a site where social control is managed. In order to gain a better understanding of the relation described above the notion of synopticism and the interplay between new and old media is discussed. The third perspective to be examined is the individualization of surveillance and here the connection between digital media, empowerment and identity building is scrutinized. A conclusion that is drawn in this chapter is that it seems to have become more legitimate to watch others and to be watched by others in today's hybrid media culture. Visibility and surveillance has become, not only associated with monitoring by states and commercial sectors, but has also become a tool for political resistance as well as technology for subjects to build identity.

    Från realism till post-sanning och tillbaka igen?: Nyhetsbransch, museer och högre utbildning mot fejkade nyheter och faktaresistens2018In: Kulturella perspektiv - Svensk etnologisk tidskrift, ISSN 1102-7908, no 1-2, p. 39-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From realism to post truth? News, museums and higher education against fake news and fact resistance

    Recently, the problem with fake news, fact resistance and the growing digital, global circulation of disinformation have caused debates and worries, and posed a challenge for several institutions of knowledge in society. In this article, we discuss how the news industry, museums and higher education confront the challenges of the ‘post truth’ era. We can see a mobilization by these institutions in Sweden: The news industry has initiated so-called fact checking sites, the major museums create exhibitions about false news and educate youth in digital literacy and many universities have launched initiatives to legitimize scientific knowledge production, thereby safeguarding professional authority. However, these initiatives are faced with dilemmas concerning how concepts of knowledge, truth and facts are negotiated and understood. This article discusses such epistemological issues in general, and focuses in particular on the risk of falling into the trap of so called neorigorism.

    Abstract [sv]

    Medan sociala medier sägs utlösa demokratiska revolutioner utanför Europas gränser utformas lagar som inskränker elektronisk kommunikation på hemmaplan. Eric Carlsson och Bo Nilsson blottlägger en paradoxal logik i den mediala retoriken och efterfrågar andra lösningar på demokratins problem än den tekniska.

    Technologies of participation: community news and social media in northern Sweden2016In: Journalism - Theory, Practice & Criticism, ISSN 1464-8849, E-ISSN 1741-3001, Vol. 17, no 8, p. 1113-1128Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how different meanings of 'participation' are developed in the intersection between local journalism and social media. The study is based on qualitative interviews with media professionals working in community media organisations in northern Sweden. Three key themes are identified: participation as marketisation, participation and production, and participation and democracy. This article discusses how these three different forms of participation contribute to the constitution of journalistic identities in a local context and to its meanings within the media sphere in general. This article argues that the emergence of new digital media has not so much renewed the role of the media professional as it has led to a cementing of their professional identity. Social media are a necessity for the development of journalism and are celebrated for their potential to include audiences; yet journalists paradoxically seem to consider these same technologies of participation as a threat, not only to journalism but also to democracy.

    Digital politik: sociala medier, deltagande och engagemang2015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den här boken handlar om hur sociala medier kan fungera politiskt i människors vardag. Digitaliseringen av samhället har starkt aktualiserat frågan om förhållandet mellan medier och deltagande. I Sverige har exempelvis de olika politiska partierna lagt mycket resurser på synlighet, inte minst via bloggar,Facebook och Twitter. Sociala nätverksmedier medför även möjligheter till en mer vardaglig form av engagemang och deltagande i en mängd olika politiska och sociala frågor.

    Vilken betydelse har sociala medier för exempelvis politiker, journalister och aktivister? Hur används nya digitala kommunikationstekniker för att utöva politiska påtryckningar och för politisk mobilisering? Vad innebär det att vara engagerad i dagens digitaliserade samhälle? Hur kan ”det politiska” – också i termer av olika typer av livsstilar och identitetsarbete – spåras i olika gruppers och individers medieanvändning?

    Digital politik — Sociala medier, deltagande och engagemangbestår av tio kapitel som från olika perspektiv bidrar till att belysa och problematisera sociala mediers betydelse för ”det politiska” i dag. Författarna är forskare verksamma inom humaniora och samhällsvetenskap i Sverige och Norge.

    Digitala vårdlandskap: kritiska reflektioner om e-hälsa i glesbygden2018In: Socialmedicinsk Tidskrift, ISSN 0037-833X, Vol. 95, no 1, p. 62-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    E-hälsa sägs av många kunna förbättra sjukvården. I den här artikeln undersöker vi föreställningar och idéer om e-hälsa för äldre i glesbygden med sär-skilt fokus på virtuella hälsorum. Vi lyfter fram förhoppningar om digital vård och analyserar på en diskursiv nivå. Artikeln belyser ideologiska föreställningar om sjukvård och problematiserar införandet av digital vårdteknologi. Som material har vi använt olika former av policymaterial. I analysen visar vi hur virtuella hälsorum kopplas ihop med diskurser om delaktighet i vård, aktivt åldrande och glesbygden som problem, och framhåller att det kan ge följder för äldres vård och hälsa. Slutligen påtalar vi behovet att närma sig e-hälsa för äldre i glesbygd från ett problematiserande perspektiv och reflektera kring digitaliseringens följder, nu och i framtiden.

    Swedish politicians and new media: democracy, identity and populism in a digital discourse2014In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 655-671Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The empirical material of this article consists of interviews with politicians in Västerbotten, an area in the north of Sweden. The aim of the article is to identify and analyse how these politicians relate to digital information technology and new media. What democratic opportunities and risks of information technology and new media are reflected in interviews with the politicians? What does this technology and these media mean for politicians’ political strategies and for their identity production as professional politicians? We argue that the interview data reflect two partly contradictory political identities: on the one side a progressive and modern political identity, and on the other a ‘real’ and ‘authentic’ political identity. However, both identities are consistent with a digital discourse and are populist due to their pro-technological character.
