    Transnational and National Media in Global Crisis: The Indian Ocean Tsunami2010 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Indian Ocean tsunami was one of the most devastating natural disasters of the modern age affecting hundreds of thousands of people from 40 countries. Some scholars saw the unprecedented “real time” news coverage and international outpouring of aid donations as examples of a cosmopolitan consciousness, while others maintain that in crisis the media look to our national leaders and institutions to act. The tsunami has also been described as a turning point for experienced television journalists, who in lieu of traditional notions of objectivity took on the role of crisis managers, and actively turned to the Internet as a means of helping people. From the vantage points of international communication, media globalization, and crisis journalism, this book addresses the links between national and transnational mediated spaces, crisis management, journalistic roles and ethics, and the mediation of distant suffering. Focusing on national and transnational news channels, it includes quantitative and qualitative text analyses, rhetorical analysis, journalist interviews, and focus group material.

    Atlas reports: Global television constructions of economic crisis2014In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 29, no 5, p. 618-625Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The setting of Rand's dystopic classic Atlas Shrugged is a world in which people revolt against their governments and refuse to bow to attempts to regulate the economy. Rand borrowed the title for her 1957 paean to the philosophy of objectivism' from Greek mythology, and the name of the giant who bore the world on his shoulders. This article analyses the work of actors who carry the world in their broadcasts, rather than on their shoulders, and whose philosophy is a professional one of objectivity. It compares representations of crisis by broadcasters anchored in different parts of the global communicative sphere, with different financing solutions and relations to political power. The results show that not all global broadcasters are alike - or, for that matter, global in their narrative strategies. The differences between the four newsrooms' reporting suggest a need for critical reconsideration of generalising claims made in the scholarly literature about how crises are depicted in global media, and particularly those about homogenization' and which see global news in terms of infotainment.

    Abstract [en]

    When political unrest spread from Tunisia to neighbouring countries early in 2011, established global broadcasters were quick to provide commentary on the part played by social media in mobilizing dissent, exploiting the same technology in their own reporting of the protests as they did so. In this article, the relation of ‘old’ to ‘new’ media is explored in a comparison of televised coverage of the Arab Spring in Al Jazeera English, Russia Today,  CNN International and BBC World news. Building on notions of mediapolis and connectivity and mediatized crisis, it seeks to map the shared communicative space opened up by global broadcasters, and how established media actors are adapting to new media ecologies. The empirical analysis shows that social media do not play the prominent role in global television discourse one might expect, and that their prominence and deployment varies from one channel to the other.

    Cosmopolitanization and Real Time Tragedy: television news coverage of the Asian Tsunami2008In: New Global Studies, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 25-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ulrich Beck argues that people become cosmopolitans by default, as a side-effect of circumstances they do not govern over. He is interested in when such ‘unconscious’ or latent cosmopolitanism becomes conscious or active, and gives rise to a global public. This article explores television

    news reporting of the 2004 Asian tsunami as a mediated instance of this phenomenon. It asks whether the episode can be said to have promoted what Beck would call a cosmopolitan outlook, and if so how. The article is based on an analysis of the work of eight European broadcasters, and

    in particular their work to activate the reflexivity which Beck argues is crucial to the cosmopolitan outlook and to nourish what Boltanski calls the spectator’s imagination of distant suffering.Empirically challenging the notion of a globalized media, the reporting of five nationally-based

    European broadcasters is compared with that of three European channels broadcasting to global audiences. Of interest here is whether the preconditions for cosmopolitan consciousness vary from country to country, and/or from target group (national) to target group (global).

    Desperately Seeking Global News2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    What is global news, and how much of it is actually on offer? As globalization is challenged by nationalist and populistic discourses throughout the world, the purpose of the paper is to consider how the global fares in global newsrooms. With critical global journalism studies (Wasserman, Berglez) as its theoretical point of departure, and hybridity (Chadwick) and mediated cosmopolitanism (Robertson, Orgad, Silverstone) as the key concepts structuring the literature review, the paper draws on an unusually large sample to explore the question. A comparative content analysis of over 18000 headlines and 6000 news items in the broadcasts of seven global television news channels (AJE, BBCW, China’s CGTN, CNNI, DW, Euronews and RT) shows that only a small percentage of their news can be considered global, either when that concept is operationalized in terms of location and actors (nation-centred or border-transcending?), or the nature of the issue involved (global issues such as climate change or human rights). When the channels are compared, considerable variation in the ‘global’ nature of their content is revealed. The findings have methodological consequences for comparative research on the intersection between news media and politics around the world, and call into question the cosmopolitan nature of global news outlets. The research reported here -part of a larger project on protest reporting 2008-2018 -shows that even channels said to speak to the world rely heavily on national borders, even if only discursively, and highlights the advantages of an emphasis on the global ‘South’.

    Abstract [en]

    Against the backdrop of EU enlargement, the article is concerned with the possible interconnections between ‘mediated worldliness’ and ‘banal’ or everyday cosmopolitanism.Based on field work at Swedish Television, focus group interviews and an analysis of news reporting in the period leading up to enlargement, it asks what can be learned about the work of the cosmopolitan imagination by exploring the relation between journalists, narratives of enlargement and the perceptions of Swedes from various

    walks of life.

    Media and politics in a globalizing world2015 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The media landscape and the political realm are both sites of change and upheaval. Against a backdrop of globalization and technological revolution, the book examines how the relationship between media and politics is changing, and how power is best understood in contemporary settings. Using a comparative, global approach, it encourages the reader to view problems posed by these changes from different perspectives – those of the politician, the journalist, the activist and the ordinary citizen – and to think about how the relationship between media and politics varies across cultures. Illustrated with contemporary examples throughout, the book weighs up arguments for seeing new developments in terms of change or continuity, as empowering or debilitating, and as promoting or undermining democracy. Suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying politics, media and sociology, it is also intended for the general reader who wishes to understand the complex role of the media in political life the world over.

    Mediated Cosmopolitanism: The World of Television News2010Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Media power in the global era has to do with how people understand the world, their place in it, and their relation to the others who populate it. Making connections with distant places and people is the work of cosmopolitan imagination, which involves seeing the world through the eyes of others. In this book, these issues are addressed by engaging with the growing literature on cosmopolitanism and the analysis of over 2000 news reports broadcast on national and global channels.

    Narratives of Resistance: Comparing Global News Coverage of the Arab Spring2012In: New Global Studies, ISSN 1940-0004, Vol. 6, no 2, article id 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A rapidly evolving media ecology is posing significant challenges to actors in the halls of power, on the streets of popular dissent, and in the global newsrooms that connect these sites to the imaginations of media users throughout the world. It is a complicated tangle of relations, and difficult questions arise about which theoretical instruments are most useful when trying to unpick it. Global news coverage of the ‘Arab Awakening’ of 2011 is fertile terrain for an exploration of some of these questions. The article compares how popular resistance is narrated by newsrooms with different reporting traditions, and reflects on how global audiences are positioned in relation to such events. The theoretical discussion is organized around the notions of media witnessing and cosmopolitanism. The empirical analysis is based on reports from over 1000 news stories broadcast on Al Jazeera English, which claims to give a voice to the voiceless, and BBC World, which has a tradition of reporting the world from the vantage point of elites. The results indicate that the reporting gaze is gendered differently, and that there are also intriguing differences in the way audiences are situated by the two broadcasters.

    Screening Protest: visual narratives of dissent across time, space and genre2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Screening Protest brings together a range of scholarly perspectives on the study of protest mediations on television and in film. Arguing that the screen is a fruitful, if overlooked, analytical focus, the book explores how visual narratives of protest wander across borders – territorial, temporal and generic.

    Chapters compare coverage of major protests in recent history by global news channels like Al Jazeera English, BBC World, CNN International and RT. They consider how geopolitical agendas, newsroom culture and the ubiquity of eyewitness footage shape the narration of events such as the ‘Umbrella Revolution’ in Hong Kong, anti-austerity protests in Greece, pro-EU mobilizations in the Ukraine and clashes in Ferguson. A focus on narrative allows authors to compare such news stories with popular cultural depictions of the protester, in films and television series such as The Hunger GamesRobin Hood and Suffragette. Although focussed on the screen, the scope of the book is broad, given its exploration of images distributed worldwide.

    Written with both scholars and students in mind, Screening Protest will interest researchers in political science, sociology, media and film studies, as well as the general reader interested in current affairs.

    Abstract [en]

    The article reviews recent scholarship on the role of the media in the Arab uprisings. After a summary of events, it sets out the debate between researchers who attribute a central and significant role to social media in the mobilizations that spread from Tunisia to Egypt and beyond in early 2011, and those who are more sceptical of such 'techno-enthusiasm'. Different theoretical perspectives on the media and protest are then presented, followed by an overview of empirical approaches to the topic. It is argued that the impact of social media must be viewed in relation to how they fit into wider media ecologies and social and political structures.
