    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the late 19th century boulevard press in Stockholm. The study is based on four weekly boulevard newspapers during the period: Figaro, Vikingen [The Viking], Budkaflen [The Fiery Cross] and Hvad Nytt [What’s New]. The main focus of the boulevard press was high-society people and the theatres and restaurants these visited. The aim of the dissertation is to investigate this journalistic genre, with specific regard to its place and role in the contemporary media system and to its construction of Stockholm as a metropolis. The analytical perspective is inspired by scholarship on the cultural history of the media, from which the concept of a media system is derived. Besides a broad media concept, the core approach is that all media are in various ways related to many other phenomena in society, including other media forms. The boulevard press was linked to other newspapers, restaurants, cafés, wax museums, reprints, guide literature, theatres and variety shows. These were also the boulevard papers’ main advertisers, thus showing the important interconnectedness between different parts on the sheets of the papers. Advertising meant positive publicity, also in the reporting.

     

    The thesis identifies two main perspectives of the boulevard-paper journalists. The reporter guided his readers in the tram around the city and on walkabouts among shops, thus stressing his mobility. The other perspective concerns the overview of the columnist. His elevated perspective was an important attribute when the newspapers summarised and presented the big city as a whole. The journalists acted as witness-ambassadors (Géraldine Muhlmann) and through this legitimacy they constructed a mediated centre (Nick Couldry), stressing what was inside and what was not. One important result is that the boulevard papers were media of self-promotion. The boulevard press was, hereby, an important actor in processes of professionalization and defining the role of the press.
