    Standing up for Sweden?: the racist discourses, architectures and affordances of an anti-immigration Facebook Group2018In: Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, ISSN 1083-6101, E-ISSN 1083-6101, Vol. 23, no 6, p. 332-353Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Facebook has faced growing criticism regarding its handling of hateful user-generated content(UGC) with research revealing how the platform can foster both covert and overt racism. Thisresearch has tended to focus on racist content while relying on abstract references to the generallogics of social media platforms. In this article we consider how Facebook shapes the production ofracist discourse in more concrete ways by integrating a concern for the platform’s architecturesand affordances within a broader analysis of the immigration-related discussions of a largeSwedish Facebook group. We combine a quantitative topic modeling of a large data set of thegroup’s UGC with a qualitative critical discourse analysis (CDA) of a sample of that data set. Ourfindings show how Facebook enables and influences various discursive strategies of identificationand persuasion—within which covert and overt racist discourses are embedded—through pro-cesses of cybertyping, role-playing, crowdsourcing and (counter-)reaction.

    Representations of Trans People in Swedish Newspapers2019In: Journalism Studies, ISSN 1461-670X, E-ISSN 1469-9699, Vol. 20, no 9, p. 1319-1338Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyses the discursive representations of trans people in 15,901 mainstream Swedish newspaper articles between 2000 and 2017 using topic modelling and critical discourse analysis. Drawing from critical perspectives on gender it was found that the articles to various degree assisted in maintaining heteronormativity. The discursive strategies employed by the journalists included trivialisation of trans expressions as dress-up and incorporation of them within binary stereotypes. Trans people were also excluded and deemed as deviant in some articles through insensitive gender descriptions and descriptions. Through the voices of experts, trans people were silenced and pathologized and while some representations of trans people were meant to empower, and offered a slightly less rigid view on gender, these articles too reinforced heteronormativity through continuous referral to binary gender.
