    The Blog's Role for Health Literacy and Knowledge Formation in the Information Society – A Genre Analysis of Structural and Linguistic Patterns in Blogs on Children with Congenital Heart defects

    The article explores how genres used on blogs can express certain kinds of knowledge by analysing how parents to children with congenital heart defects use patient blogs. Genre analysis (Martin & Rose 2008) is performed in order to investigate the blog format. The survey shows that the blog content may be regarded as a narrative macro genre that brings a certain framework for the blog as a resource for knowledge formation. The blog format also provides bloggers a well-used opportunity to, within the blog, make their own choices of genre structures and to make shifts between genres. This enables shifts between experience based content and general medical facts, which may work as a resource to gain health literacy.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a study of four elderly people’s use of computers in vernacular literacy practices (Heath 1999:200; Barton 2007:35–37). Two men and two women from different social and professional backgrounds have participated in the study and the data analyzed consist of participant logs and recorded interviews. The aim is to identify and describe what the participants are doing with their computers. Questions discussed are how participation in digital literacy practices may be connected to age and social situation and what importance experiences from earlier non-digital literacy practices have for elderly people’s use of computers today. Results are, inter alia, that the participants use digital and non-digital tools simultaneously in their vernacular literacy practices, that long-time practices have taken new forms due to digitalization and that new practices have emerged due to digitalization. The study shows examples of how literacy is in constant change and how modern technology add new possibilities to social practices (Barton 2007:50). Users earlier experiences together with their new needs and wishes, due to technology, are constantly reshaping literacy practices.

    Kategorisering och konstruktion av kön i niondeklassares texter2015In: Skrivande i skolan / [ed] Maria Lindgren, Gudrun Svensson, Malmö: Gleerups Utbildning AB, 2015, 1, p. 117-132Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln visar hur elever i årskurs 9 skriver fram kategorisering och konstruktion av kön i skolan. I texterna framträder särskilt tre kategorier vars röster genomsyrar beskrivningarna, dvs. lärarens, den allmänna åsiktens och elevens. I artikeln åskådliggörs hur eleverna reagerar inför vedertagna mönster och visar upp ett kritiskt reflekterande förhållningssätt när lärare sorterar och kategoriserar efter kön. Samtidigt är de inte alltid klarsynta inför sina egna stereotyper och väver in dem i sina berättelser.

    Som metod används Membership Categorization Analysis, MCA (Sacks 1974, senare utvecklad av bl.a. Baker 1997 och Hester & Eglin 1997) som är ett redskap för analys av kategorisering i samtal. Artikeln är skriven enligt ett inom språkvetenskapen vedertaget mönster med en viss struktur, referenser inom parentes i brödtexten och en kompletterande referenslista i slutet av artikeln.

    Abstract [en]

    What tends to be regarded as the prototypical language of digital texts is often associated with a certain linguistic style, for example strong expressions of emotion, an absence of references, use of emoticons and unconventional abbreviations (Hård af Segerstad 2002). This article broadens the image of digital texts by studying blogging as participation in communicative activities (Levinson 1979, Lave & Wenger 1998, Sarangi 2000, Linell 2011). The study explores how language use is shaped by the social contexts it forms part of. Individuals are seen as bearers of linguistic repertoires, from which they can draw and use different resources in different contexts in order to create meaning. The study draws attention to social and contextual factors as significant for how two bloggers, Dan 16 and Erik 85 years old, choose linguistic resources when they produce blog posts about participating in an excursion with friends. It provides a greater understanding of young people’s and senior citizens’ everyday writing and shows how individuals’ digital texts are the result of of a complex interplay between contextual, technical and personal factors.

    Becoming the expert constructing health knowledge in epistemic communities online2018In: Information, Communication and Society, ISSN 1369-118X, E-ISSN 1468-4462Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From a discourse analytic framework, the article analyses health blogs and patient’s forum discussions in which parents to children with congenital heart defects recontextualize medical professional knowledge and share their own experiences. The study show how the two types of online media may serve as a means for parents to attain expert status in their own case by sharing lay knowledge expressed as an amalgamation of the two key perspectives – professional and experienced – as an indivisible unit. Monological discourses, such as narrating, in blogs and more direct and immediate responses in forum discussions are noted as examples of differences in how medical facts are explained and negotiated, how advice is provided and how patient expertise is created. The study also show how blogs and especially forum discussions are used to problematize the validity of actions and opinions of medical staff. The role of developing patient expertise in epistemic communities online may therefore come with a risk of spreading misrepresentation of medical cases.

    Building health knowledge online: Parents’ online information searching on congenital heart defects2017In: Literacy and Numeracy Studies: An international journal in the education and training of adults, ISSN 1441-0559, E-ISSN 1839-2903, Vol. 25, no 1, p. 4-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The study examines online searching as a digital health literacy practice and focuses on parents of children with congenital heart defects. Over the period of four years, we have conducted interviews with couples at different stages of pregnancy or parenthood and have encouraged them to reflect on their literacy practices when receiving a heart defect diagnosis, during the remaining time of their pregnancy and when living with a child with a heart defect. We have also read and analysed health blogs written by parents and focused on extracts where literacy events are described. Searching for information and support online is one of the most frequent practices amongst the participants in the study. The aim of this paper is therefore to highlight the complexity of looking for information online in order to take health decisions and provide care to a child with congenital illness. Based on what parents say they do when searching online, we focus on three main paths to knowledge: looking for medical facts, looking for other parents’ experiences and looking for practical information. We discuss digital health literacy practices as complex activities that often involve parents in the diagnosis and in the child’s medical care to such an extent that parents build up knowledge and become experts, not only in finding information and support but in talking and writing about their child’s illness. We also problematise the notion of trustworthy health information and show how facts and opinions often go hand in hand in platforms where health issues are discussed. Finally, we show some of the affordances and restrictions inherent in using the internet as a source for meaning making and learning about children’s health. The results reinforce our understanding of the socially framed nature of health literacy and make us focus on the digital as an additional important aspect in the practice of health literacy.

    Abstract [sv]

    Vårdinstitutioner har inte längre monopol på att förmedla medicinsk kunskap. Patienter söker själva information och delar egna erfarenheter – inte mist på Internet. I fall där kunskapsbehovet är akut och komplext kan en kombination av olika kunskapskällor vara det som krävs för att fylla individens behov. Vi har studerat hur föräldrar till barn med medfött hjärtfel tar till sig information.

    Health literacy as knowledge construction: Learning about health by expanding objects and crossing boundaries in networked activities2018In: Learning, Culture and Social Interaction, ISSN 2210-6561, E-ISSN 2210-657XArticle, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we examine health literacy as a set of practices that unfold in networked activity systems. Focusing on the literacy practices of pregnant couples and parents of children with heart defect, we show that they participate in multiple activities with the object of constructing knowledge about the child's condition. The contexts for these activities are doctor-patient consultations and the parents' online searching and sharing. The study builds on ethnographic interviews, recorded medical consultations and collection of texts from online forums, blogs and social media. An analysis based on literacy practices and activity theory shows that these activities enable parents' learning, but they can also be restricting as to the mediating tools they provide and the rules that dictate the tools. Additionally, the object of learning about heart defect is not always clearly formulated and stable but it keeps alternating and expanding. As a result, the parents cross boundaries between activities with different mediating tools, rules and communities and thereby different possibilities for learning. We show that doing health literacy is comprised by a set of recontextualised practices of looking for medical and experiential knowledge and it is by a combination of the two that meaningful learning is achieved.

    Den 80-årige bloggkungen: En studie av språkliga konstruktioner av äldre i förhållande till IT2018In: Human IT, ISSN 1402-1501, E-ISSN 1402-151X, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 101-139Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we show and discuss the results from an empirical study with a social constructivist perspective, where we explore the combination of two socially and interactively constructed categories: senior citizens and young persons. In the study the paradoxical discourse that surrounds beliefs about usage of ICT in the two different stages of life is highlighted. The data is collected from a blog of a senior citizen and from media interviews with the blogger. The analysis points to the beliefs and expectations that are expressed regarding the use of digital information and interaction technology, and contributes to the discussion of the place and role of senior citizens in today’s society.
