    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.

    Translocal Frame Extensions in a Networked Protest: Situating the #IdleNoMore hashtag2014In: IC: Revista Científica de Información y Comunicación, ISSN 1696-2508, E-ISSN 2173-1071, Vol. 11, p. 49-77Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to examine how locally situated social movements can use social media to deploy translocally networked forms of protests. The study looks at the Canadian Idle No More movement, an indigenous and environmental grassroots initiative that emerged around the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013 as a reaction to previous neglect of indigenous groups and to the omnibus bill proposal C-45 (which threatened both the partial sovereignty of indigenous territories and the Canadian environment). Focusing on the -decentralized and heterogeneous- movement’s Twitter use in general, and the employment of the hashtag #idlenomore in particular, the study examines to which extent and how Twitter may be a means for establishing bonds between geographically dispersed social movements.

    Social Media and the Transnationalization of Mass Activism: Twitter and the labour movement2016In: First Monday, ISSN 1396-0466, E-ISSN 1396-0466, Vol. 21, no 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the labour movement organization LabourStart, a digital initiative that, by various means such as e-mail campaigns and social media use, seeks to promote workers’ rights and to strengthen the labour movement on a global scale. The main aim of this study is to analyse a) how LabourStart employs Twitter for communication and organisation and b) how the Twitter-sphere that LabourStart constitutes — and is constituted by — is geographically structured. Our dataset consisted of all tweets containing the word “labourstart” and all tweets coming from or addressing any LabourStart–related account during the period 2008–2015. As theoretical points of departure, the notions of transnationalization/translocalism were used, in part together with the concept of connective action, to conceptualise the research. In terms of methodology, network analysis was the main approach employed to obtain and visualise the findings. Our results indicate that LabourStart’s Twitter use does not seem to have had any effects in terms of creating a decentralised transnational movement with translocal traits, thus suggesting that LabourStart has failed to fully make use of the connective features of Twitter and to establish a decentralized, transnational union movement. This, we suggest, is to some extent caused by LabourStart’s centralized organizational — and thus communicational — structure. In the concluding section, we interpret our findings in broader terms relating to the context and history of labour movements, and we discuss LabourStart’s work in relation to local and global worker issues.

    Free speech or hate speech?: A legal analysis of the discourse about Roma on Twitter2019In: Information & communications technology law, ISSN 1360-0834, E-ISSN 1469-8404, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 1-18Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article draws on material gathered from Swedish tweets about the Roma population, in order to map different discourses. Based on this material, a legal analysis was made focusing on how the legal protection under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and Swedish law for such types of expression may vary depending on the wider discursive context. This article concludes that the legal protection for hateful expressions against for instance Roma, will vary depending on the discursive context. When the expression is a direct part of a political discussion, the protection of freedom of expression will be higher. However, emphasis must also be placed on the aim, value, and accuracy of the statement, even in a political context. This will increase the possibilities to legally intervene against speech that may perhaps be triggered by an ongoing political debate, but is hateful and without value to that debate.

    Continued contexts of terror: analyzing temporal patterns of hashtag co-occurrence as discursive articulations2018In: Social Media + Society, ISSN 2056-3051, E-ISSN 2056-3051, Vol. 4, no 4, article id 2056305118813649Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study looks at how terror attacks are rendered discursively meaningful on social media through the concurrent use and reiteration of terror hashtags, which were created following previous incidents of terror. The article focuses on 12 terror attacks in Europe in 2015-2017 and their relating hashtags on Twitter, to see how various combinations of these were reused and co-articulated in tweets posted in relation to subsequent attacks. Through social network analysis of co-occurring hashtags in about 3 million tweets, in combination with close readings of a smaller sample, this study aims to analyze both the networks of hashtags in relation to terror attacks as well as the discursive process of hashtag co-articulation. The study shows that the patterns by which attack hashtags are reused and co-articulated depend on both temporal and contextual differences.

    Abstract [en]

    The focus of this paper is on different but connected areas of power – relating to things such as economic globalisation, surveillance, censorship/freedom, ‘terrorism’ and/or specific military activity – visually represented through online media, and intentionally produced to inform a wide spectrum of individuals and interest groups about global and local social injustices. Or, more importantly, produced and distributed with the purpose of providing users with possibilities to engage, bodily and emotionally, in diverse ways: may it be through physical antiwar/anti-wall street protests or hacktivist tactics (e.g. DDoS attacks).

    We examine a sample of videos, photographs and propaganda posters produced, and digitally distributed (2008-2013), by the fragmented body of activists united globally under the generic name of Anonymous. Analytically, we will draw upon Mouffe’s thoughts on ‘antagonism’ and ‘passion,’ Foucault’s ideas on international citizenship and the (ethical) ‘right to intervene’ (beyond governmentality), together with Sontag’s notion of institutional political inertia and the Deleuzian/Spinozian perspective on affect as a capacity for action. The goal is to analyse the ways in which Anonymous systematically inspire (not only) the radical and social imaginary but also other direct forms of action that have potential societal effects.

    The power of precision air strikes and social media feeds in the 2012 Israel–Hamas conflict: 'targeting transparency’2014In: Australian Journal of International Affairs, ISSN 1035-7718, E-ISSN 1465-332X, Vol. 68, no 5, p. 569-591Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the evolving uses of social media during wartime through the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) Spokesperson Facebook and Twitter accounts. The conflict between Israel and Hamas-affiliated groups in November 2012 has generated interesting data about social media use by a sovereign power in wartime and the resultant networked discourse. Facebook data is examined for effective patterns of dissemination through both content analysis and discourse analysis. Twitter data is explored through connected concept analysis to map the construction of meaning in social media texts shared by the IDF. The systematic examination of this social media data allows the authors’ analysis to comment on the evolving modes, methods and expectations for state public diplomacy, propaganda and transparency during wartime.

    YouTube as a performative arena: how Swedish youth are negotiating space, community membership, and gender identities through the art of parkour2011In: Youth culture and net culture: online social practices / [ed] Drs. Elza Dunkels, Gun-Marie Frånberg and Camilla Hällgren, IGI Global , 2011Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The YouTube video sharing site is used by huge numbers of young people in the roles of consumers as well as producers of content and meaning. The site hosts an extremely large amount of video clips, and its users represent a wide variety of nationalities, religions, ethnic backgrounds, identities and lifestyles. These facts make it hard to see how a tangible sense of actual community could be created within the site. Using on- and offline ethnographic data in the form of footage, interviews and patterns of community interaction (favoriting, subscribing, commenting, rating, and video replies), this chapter presents the results of a case study that aims to analyze how a specific interest group with a certain national anchoring (Swedish parkour youth) deal with the vastness and complexity of YouTube in creating a sense of identity and community in relation to their specialized interest.

    Beyond the nation-state Polish national identity and cultural intimacy online2017In: National Identities, ISSN 1460-8944, E-ISSN 1469-9907, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 293-309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the debate on ;new patriotism' in a Polish online discussion forum. We study the ways in which national identity is constructed in this setting. Digital communication contributes further to expanding discourse on national identities beyond nation-state borders. We analyse close to 6000 posts from a large Polish Internet discussion forum through the methods of quantitative concept mapping and qualitative close readings. Our results show that patriotism is negotiated beyond strictly national frameworks. It is not merely a question of national interest as it also connects people through a process of establishing and maintaining of cultural intimacy.

    A ghost in the machine: tracing the role of "the digital' in discursive processes of cybervictimisation2018In: Discourse & Communication, ISSN 1750-4813, E-ISSN 1750-4821, Vol. 12, no 5, p. 517-534Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study of discursive understandings of cybervictimisation draws on a dataset of crime news reporting and asks the question of if and how cybervictimisation is construed in ways that differ from other types of (non-digital) victimisation. Building on a critical discourse perspective employing corpus-based text analysis methods, the composition of news discourses about cybervictimisation are analysed, alongside the relationship between such representations and news media discourse on crime victimisation generally. The aim is to see what effect the presence of a digital dimension has for how the notion of victimisation is socially and culturally understood. The study shows, first, that news reporting on cybervictimisation has a strong bias towards crimes that fit well with the notion of the ideal victim' (such as sexual victimisation and bullying) while excluding other types like hacking and identity theft. The question is raised whether victim' discourse is able to account for the latter types or if new understandings and concepts will emerge. Second, the study shows that discourses promoting understandings of technology as contributing to amplifying danger, and that represent technology as potentially undermining social order, are strong in cybervictimisation news reports. These discourses are consequential for who is seen as a legitimate victim and not. Just as it can be very difficult to identify and apprehend perpetrators of cybercrime, so is also the identification and definition of cybervictims ambiguous and demands to be further researched.

    Abstract [sv]

    Ända sedan internets breda genombrott i mitten av 1990-talet har ett relativt omfattande forskningsintresse riktats mot hur barn och unga påverkas av att använda och relatera till digitala medier. I den här översikten ges dels en presentation av forskning om ungas aktiviteter på nätet mer generellt, dels en av ungas mer eller mindre formella organisering på nätet. Översikten bygger på sökningar efter ofta citerad litteratur på fältet i Google Scholar i kombination med författarens egen kännedom om vilka studier som har uppmärksammats mer allmänt.

    At the nexus of destruction and creation: Pirate and anti-pirate discourse in Swedish online media2010In: International conference of New Media and Interactivity: April 28-30, 2010 / [ed] Gökhan Nalbant, Tolga Kara, Istanbul: Marmara University , 2010, p. 229-236Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this paper is to map and compare discursive themes relating to pro- and anti-piracy sentiments in Swedish online public discourse. The data comes from major news media sites as well as from expressions of user-generated content, citizen journalism, and counter-discourse in the form of blog posts. The analysis employs web mining tools, and relies on quantitative as well as qualitative approaches to written discourse. In the light of the tension between the judicial system (piracy is illegal in Sweden) and the very large number of people who commit acts of piracy, it is of interest to investigate how different opinions are expressed and how they interact. Sweden, home to The Pirate Bay as well as the first parliamentary „Pirate Party‟, is an especially interesting case as regards how arguments from pirates and anti-pirates play. The analyses show that news discourse on piracy revolves around dilemmas posed by file sharing to capitalist institutions, legislators, lawmen and rights-owners. In this context piracy, is conceived of as a tool of destruction, of economic value, of markets, and of morality. In contrast, blog discourse is more focused on morality and ethics than on law and policing, and it emphasizes the potential of pirate culture for radically transforming capitalism. In this context − even though seen as a force tearing down previously dominating structures – piracy is seen as a tool of creation of new avenues for cultural expression, of a new economy, and of a better society. The clash between these two discourses is discussed from the perspective of discourse theory (Laclau & Mouffe) and cultural sociology (Bourdieu).

    The overarching question in this chapter has to do with cooperation dynamics in social networks on YouTube. The chapter will focus on community aspects of vlogging (video blogging) and it is suggested that networked publics and participatory cultures offer valuable opportunities to the educational system.

    Crowdsourcing Knowledge: Interdiscursive flows from Wikipedia into scholarly research2014In: Culture Unbound. Journal of Current Cultural Research, ISSN 2000-1525, E-ISSN 2000-1525, Vol. 6, p. 609-627Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information increasingly flows from smart online knowledge systems, based on ‘collective intelligence’, and to the more traditional form of knowledge production that takes place within academia. Looking specifically at the case of Wikipedia, and at how it is employed in scholarly research, this study contributes new knowledge about the potential role of user-generated information in science and innovation. This is done using a dataset collected from the Scopus research database, which is processed with a combination of bibliometric techniques and qualitative analysis. Results show that there has been a significant increase in the use of Wikipedia as a reference within all areas of science and scholarship.Wikipedia is used to a larger extent within areas like Computer Science, Mathematics, Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities, than in Natural Sciences, Medicine and Psychology. Wikipedia is used as a source for a variety of knowledge and information as a replacement for traditional reference works. A thematic qualitative analysis showed that Wikipediaknowledge is recontextualised in different ways when it is incorporated into scholarly discourse. In general, one can identify two forms of framing where one is unmodalised, and the other is modalised. The unmodalised uses include referring to Wikipedia as a complement or example, as a repository, and as an unproblematic source of information. The modalised use is characterised by the invocation of various markers that emphasise – in different ways – thatWikipedia can not be automatically trusted. It has not yet achieved full legitimacy as a source.

    Giving Online Support: Individual and Social Processes in a Domestic Violence Forum2014In: International Journal of Web Based Communities, ISSN 1477-8394, E-ISSN 1741-8216, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 147-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper analyses social and individual processes of social support in an online forum for victims of domestic violence. The main conclusion is that a key mechanism that makes online social support forums work has to do with how the setting is made into a 'community of practice' rather than a mere aggregation of posts or isolated minor exchanges within a common topic. It appears that support forums may function in relatively self-regulating ways as a process of informal socialisation and learning might create engagement and contribute to the creation of an abstract, but still joint, enterprise keeping participants together by mutual engagements and shared histories. Online support forums seem to be in need of 'givers' who have acquired the necessary social capital to function as prime definers that hold the forum together and secures its functioning.

    Introducing Connected Concept Analysis: A network approach to big text datasets2016In: Text & Talk, ISSN 1860-7330, E-ISSN 1860-7349, Vol. 36, no 3, p. 341-362Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper introduces Connected Concept Analysis (CCA) as a framework for text analysis which ties qualitative and quantitative considerations together in one unified model. Even though CCA can be used to map and analyze any full text dataset, of any size, the method was created specifically for taking the sensibilities of qualitative discourse analysis into the age of the Internet and big data. Using open data from a large online survey on habits and views relating to intellectual property rights, piracy and file sharing, I introduce CCA as a mixed-method approach aiming to bring out knowledge about corpuses of text, the sizes of which make it unfeasible to make comprehensive close readings. CCA aims to do this without reducing the text to numbers, as often becomes the case in content analysis. Instead of simply counting words or phrases, I draw on constant comparative coding for building concepts and on network analysis for connecting them. The result - a network graph visualization of key connected concepts in the analyzed text dataset - meets the need for text visualization systems that can support discourse analysis.

    "It took me about half an hour, but I did it!": Media circuits and affinity spaces around how-to videos on YouTube2012In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 27, no 2, p. 152-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Combining sentiment analysis and discursive network analysis, this article looks to answer which sentiments characterize YouTube comments discourse, with a specific focus on how- to videos. What are the differences between comments to various types of videos, and which discursive contexts seem to promote positive sentiment and a participatory climate? Furthermore, the aim is to map out a variety of existing user strategies in terms of their degree of participation. What various modes of taking part and/or giving support are made discursively possible, and what degrees of detachment or engagement are expressed through these identified strategies?

    Modernitetens markörer: ungdomsbilder i tid och rum2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of tbis dissertation is to study the media discourse on youth as it appeared in the Swedish region of Norrbotten during the postwar period. It discusses changes in ways of thinking and talking about youth against the background of modernization in the region. The data consists of artides from two locai newspapers. Norrbotten is geographically peripheral to the center of Sweden; it is also one of the few border regions of the country. The entire area — but particularly Tornedalen, which borders Finland - has a history of unemployment, problems related to infrastructure, and cultural conflicts. This study relates the discourse on youth to the tensions within such dichotomies as modem and traditional, urban and rural, and global and local. While the view of the media as constructors of social reality influences the theoretical perspective of the study, it is not meant to imply that the media create reality on their own. Rather, it is assumed that they are "co-producers" of reality and that journalistic texts serve as specific expressions of the predominant cultural codes in a culture and/or a given period of time. The dissertation presents case studies of four decades — the 1930s, 1950s, 1970s and 1980s — and focuses on the texts, as well as the contexts of the discourse surrounding Norrbotten youth. Following discussions of both the media messages and their sociohistorical contexts, it concludes that the debate about "today's youth" often serves as a forum in which society can express its hopes and concerns for the future. With theoretical concepts such as modernity and generation as a starting point, this dissertation further examines these results. In these discussions, modernity's duplicity stands out. On the one hand, youth are viewed as the bearers of what could be called romantic modernity and on the other, as provocateur in regard to the classical, rationalistic modernity's puritanical ideals and its moral entrepreneurs. The relationship between the generations is also symptomatic of modernity as a whole. With that, youth does not necessarily have to symbolize change in terms of rationality. In other words, provocation can spring from any deviation from the norms of change and progress established by the classic approach to modernization. Furthermore, the dual view of youth, that is, the prevailing tendency to describe them, simultaneously, as symbols of a belief in the future and degenerates, is typical for modernity. Consequently, the duality of the view of youth mirrors an ambivalent attitude to an ambivalent modernity.

    Mosh pits outside the oval office: Mapping sign functions in a music video with a political message2006In: Applied Semiotics, ISSN 1204-6140, Vol. 8, no 18, p. 54-65Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When the Eminem music video ‘Mosh’ was released on the Internet shortly before the 2004 US election it was mass downloaded, and its strong political imagery quickly made it a pop culture phenomenon. One journalist actually called it ‘the most important piece of mainstream dissent since the 60’s’. In this article a deconstruction of this video is carried out, drawing on Roman Jakobson’s semiotic theory of sign functions. The primary goal, however, is neither simply to discuss, nor to review the video ‘Mosh’ as a specific expression, nor is it to champion Jakobson’s theory as the ultimate semiotic model. The aim is rather to illustrate the potential possessed by basic semiotic analysis when it comes to bringing the symbolic workings of a ‘political’ visual text to light – and thereby critically investigating a case of construction and contestation of the social world in visual discourse.

    Movement Mobilization in the Age of Hashtag Activism: Examining the Challenge of Noise, Hate, and Disengagement in the #MeToo Campaign2019In: Policy & Internet, ISSN 1944-2866, E-ISSN 1944-2866Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the challenges faced by the #MeToo campaign, during its first weeks of existence on Twitter. These included the challenges of maintaining its frame, and making a consistent impact in a complex and volatile media landscape. This mixed-methods study draws on a data set of four million tweets accessed through Twitter's public data interface. It addresses the following research questions: To what degree did the #MeToo campaign on Twitter have a clear focus, and was it able to maintain it? How did the tone of the campaign on Twitter change over time, in terms of the positivity or negativity of expressed sentiments? To what extent were tweets simply reiterated, or instead made the subject of customization and active debate? The article finds that #MeToo quickly started to lose its momentum after the initial and explosive impact, with noise, antagonism, and sloganization increasingly weighing down and diluting the campaign. However, a cross-platform perspective is needed to grasp a full picture of how hashtag activism functions; including the #MeToo campaign.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper aimed at examining the barriers to and facilitators of disseminating and utilizing the results of a local Swedish school survey. Interviews with 21 school district managers/principals were performed. Results showed that dissemination and utilization of local survey data appeared as two interrelated processes. With those processes, various barriers and facilitators were mentioned. The barriers and facilitators were not merely the opposites of each other; instead they qualitatively differed from each other depending on what phase in the process the manager/principal referred to. The results also showed that the dissemination phase was both a prerequisite for and interwoven with the utilization phase, e.g. dissemination efforts were important for how the survey results were utilized.
