    The Arab Spring As Meta-Event and Communicative Spaces2013In: Television and New Media, ISSN 1527-4764, E-ISSN 1552-8316, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 351-364Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, immediately labeled the Arab Spring, are best described as processes rather than outcomes. Despite being a common area of media focus due to decades-long geopolitics, the Arab Spring, as a mediatized meta-event, has led to the reemergence of the region as a discursive territory. The communicative spaces that opened up during and in the aftermath of the uprisings allowed for a multiplicity of topics to reenter public discourse across local, national, and transnational scales. In the process, seasoned debates such as religious sectarianism and democratic institutionalization gained magnitude. More specific debates such as Turkey's role as a model/antimodel added new discursive aspects to the multitopic ensemble. The purpose of this article is to reflect on the communicative and scalar dimensions in the mediation of the Arab Spring by way of taking the debates on Turkey as a case in point.

    Complicit surveillance, interveillance, and the question of cosmopolitanism: Toward a phenomenological understanding of mediatization2015In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 17, no 9, p. 1473-1491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The institutional and meta-processual dimensions of surveillance have been scrutinized extensively in literature. In these accounts, the subjective, individual level has often been invoked in relation to subject-object, surveillor-surveilled dualities and in terms of the kinds of subjectivity modern and late-modern institutions engender. The experiential, ontological realm of the mediatized everyday vis-a-vis surveillance remains less explored, particularly from the phenomenological perspective of the lifeworld. Academic discourses of surveillance mostly address rhetorically oriented macro-perspectives. The same diagnosis largely applies to the debates on the cosmopolitanization process. The literature of cosmopolitanism revolves around broad cultural and ethical transformations in terms of the relationship between Self and Other, individual and humanity, and the local and the universal. Our aim in this article is to conceptualize the dynamics that yield a cosmopolitan Self and an encapsulated Self under conditions of increasingly interactive and ubiquitous forms of mediation and surveillance.

    Arctic sea ice and the communication of climate change2017In: Popular Communication, ISSN 1540-5702, E-ISSN 1540-5710, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 249-268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Media play a major role in framing key political issues such as climate change, and the melting of the Arctic snow and ice has become a bellwether of global climate change through the mediations of the region and its wildlife. While Arctic change has scientific significance for understanding global warming, it also plays a key role in the popular communication of global climate change and its impacts. This article addresses questions such as how the Arctic and its sea ice have become become powerful images of climate change, and what roles scientific activities, technologies, and networks play in relation to media and mediation. Drawing upon earlier research on the role of the media and framing in relation to climate change in general and upon Arctic climate change in particular, we explore how media framings are linked with various dynamics such as scientific practice and the institutional structure of the media system.

    Media, Communication, and the Environment in Precarious Times2018In: Journal of Communication, ISSN 0021-9916, E-ISSN 1460-2466, Vol. 68, no 2, p. 267-277Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The seminal 1983 Ferments in the Field collection made limited reference to environmental issues and concerns. Considering communication media and technological artifacts as both nature and culture and, more specifically, through defining media as both infrastructural environments and content, we discuss how challenges brought about by environmental change can inform contemporary media and communication research and environmental communication. The materiality of e-waste, which has resonance for cultural, political, economic, and geographic analyses, is used as an illuminating case in point. We link the implications ensuing from the e-waste issue with the roles mediation and communication of environmental narratives play, and how they can be informed by such medianatures, as well as geopolitical considerations.

    The reciprocal city: Performing solidarity—Mediating space through street art and graffiti2017In: International Communication Gazette, ISSN 1748-0485, E-ISSN 1748-0493, Vol. 79, no 6-7, p. 584-612Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, based on two case studies conducted in Stockholm and London, we discuss how graffiti and street art provide forms of expressive cosmopolitanism in reclaiming voice and reciprocity in the city. Through in-depth interviews and observations, we explore how urban artists, using their practice, foster ever-transient and contesting senses of outsidered aesthetics and communicative culture that both seek to challenge the institutionalization and hegemonic indoctrination of today's media cities and, as such, become part of the ensemble that constitute its visual geography. While there are many parallels and inter-urban synchronicity, our results indicate that locally-specific elements are prominent in each city. Both studies indicate that the solidaritarian and spatially mediating character of graffiti and street art, and not just their contents, constitutes a resource in sustaining the possibility of coproducing worldly visions in and of the cities. They both observe struggles for openness and social critique taking place across time and space.

    Global Climate Talks from Failure to Cooperation and Hope: Swedish News Framings of COP15 and COP212017In: Environmental Communication: A Journal of Nature and Culture, ISSN 1752-4032, E-ISSN 1752-4040, Vol. 11, no 5, p. 682-699Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to offer an analysis of how two UN Conferences of Parties, COP15 in Copenhagen 2009 and COP21 in Paris 2015, were covered and debated in Swedish newspapers. Two national and two regional newspapers were selected for the study, and a qualitative frame analysis was conducted on 309 articles. A typology of frames applicable to science-related policy and climate change debates was used and its relevance for global climate summit context was discussed. Having territory in the Arctic region, indigenous populations affected by climate change measures, and political and public sensitivity to environmental issues, the climate debate has particular significance in the Swedish case. Findings indicate a trust in the role of national and supra-national governance to address climate change problems, but also that newspapers in Sweden maintained a focus on the global aspects of the two meetings, rather than framing them as surrogate battlefields for domestic politics.

    Beppe Grillo and the M5S: A political experiment2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper studies the political blog of Beppe Grillo and the directly connected political movement of the blog, the Movimento Cinque Stelle (M5S). Beppe Grillo, an Italian comedian and politician, launched 2009 the political movement M5S as an Internet movement with political interests. The movement is based on the blog of Beppe Grillo, which creates the content and the political guidelines of the M5S. The recent political success of the M5S, being elected the first political force in Italy in February 2013, adds to the study case actuality. The aim of this paper is to identify how Beppe Grillo uses the blog and the M5S in order to gain such a large acceptance in the society, and, which role the political aspect plays in comparison to the medial aspect. The theoretical framework is divided in two main areas of theory: the first deals with political communication, and the other focuses on Internet communication. The research is based on a perspective of Critical Discourse Analysis, adapting the research method on the empirical material studied. The context, the language and texts, as the interaction and dialogue of the blog are studied.

    Från Anschluss till Sudetenlandet: Två svenska dagstidningars rapportering om Nazitysklands erövringar2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I den här uppsatsen har jag valt att undersöka pressbilden av Nazitysklands erövringar av under 1938. Först det så kallade Anschluss i Österrike och sen ockupationen av delar av dåvarande Tjeckoslovakien, det så kallade Sudetenlandet. Som forskningsmaterial har jag valt att undersöka två tidningar, Social-Demokraten och Stockholms-Tidningen. Syftet har varit att försöka förstå den vilken bild en läsare fick av de här händelserna när de föregav sig samt undersöka hur tidningarna förhöll sig till sina källor och hur de beskrev frågorna kring folk och minoriteter som de här kriserna handlade om.Som utgångspunkt för min undersökning har jag anlagt ett moraliskt perspektiv som det målats upp av Klas Åmark i hans bok Att bo granne med ondskan. Jag har utfört en kvalitativ hermeneutisk studie av 135 antal artiklar jämt fördelade mellan de två tidningarna där jag dels jämfört tidningarna med varandra men även jämfört det som skrivs med vad som faktiskt skedde rent historiskt.Jag har kommit fram till att tidningarna skiljer sig markant åt i sin rapportering, Social-Demokraten presenterar en mycket negativ bild av det som sker och ger klart Nazityskland skulden för det som sker medan den bild av händelserna som Stockholms-Tidningen framför är mycket mer ”neutral” och bitvis pro-tysk.Båda tidningarna rapporterar om minoritetsfrågan, både den judiska och den sudettyska och intar olika attityder mot dessa men upphör sedan att vidare beskriva dessa minoriteters öden allt eftersom kriserna går mot sitt slut.

    Moai and Mirth: Easter Island in Cartoons2023In: Zwischen "Südsee" und "Sea of Islands": Beispeile der Selbst-und Fremdrepräsentation Ozeaniens / [ed] Hannah Dittmer; Irina Eder; Elizabeth Worliczek; Igor Eberhard, Wien: LIT Verlag, 2023, p. 150-162Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The stone carvings of Easter Island, the instantly recognisable moai, are a pervasive form within popular culture. Their appeal has seen them appropriated, re-positioned and re-imagined for comic books, computer games and, most significantly, single-frame and single-strip cartoons. The latter, which are found in great numbers across the Internet and in newspapers and magazines, demonstrate the international value of the moai for humourists. This article examines the depiction of moai to create humour across single-frame and single-strip cartoons to better understand the signification and interpretation of these statues within global cultures. These cartoons also reveal the four key myths of the moai – the myths of creation, power, movement and presence – that I have previously identified, and which will also be addressed through a range of cartoon examples.

    The Aquatic Kiwi Gothic: Isolation, Insanity and the Occasional Fisherman2023In: Gothic in the Oceanic South: Maritime, Marine and Aquatic Uncanny in Southern Waters / [ed] Diana Sanders; Allison Craven, London: Routledge, 2023, p. 103-119Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I have argued that in understanding New Zealand there must be a consideration of a triad of scapes – landscape, seascape and skyscape – in which the land has been the dominant form in the local film and literature. Here, numerous instances of New Zealand Gothic can be identified, but examples of the aquatic Gothic are relatively few. This is surprising as New Zealand has an approximate coastline of 15,000 kilometers. Moreover, within the country’s great sea voyaging past there are origin narratives, legends of ocean beasts and a considerable history of shipwrecks and mass drownings at sea. This chapter considers the presence and function of the aquatic Kiwi Gothic as it appears within fiction centred on the shore and the foreshore as well as the ocean. The texts that I consider range from the short story “Swans” (1951; Janet Frame), the novel the bone people (1984; Keri Hulme), the children’s book Low Tide (1992; William Mayne), and the young adult book The Tricksters (1986; Margaret Mahy), to the Māori television series Mataku (2002-5), the feature films Perfect Strangers (2003) and The Ferryman (2007), and the short films A Moment Passing (1997) and Delores (2003). Across islands of isolation and a haunted coast, to a sunken lost ship, sea creatures and deadly fishing trips, I will explore the extent of the aquatic Kiwi Gothic in a country which I have defined as a “perilous paradise”.

    Den gamle och filmen: Om den nya generationen äldre och dess plats i det cinematiska rummet. En representationsstudie2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Within the field of cinema studies, the question of visual representation is a fundamental pillar. An immense volume of theoretical work has been written on the subject, with various academic approaches such as feministic, postcolonial and gay/lesbian. Yet there is a large social group that seems to have been overlooked within the representational discourse: the elderly. This group of people appears to be a blind spot on the multicultural retina, too often neglected within the area of cultural studies. But as the baby boomer generation, who has always redefined the different stages of life (youth, adulthood, middle age), is entering old age, things are slowly changing. Utilizing a post-structural framework, this essay investigates the visual representation of elderly within the cinematic landscape of the western world. Since the subject is somewhat uncharted territory, a broad interdisciplinary approach is necessary where modern social gerontology meets the field of cinema studies. In a cultural context, social grouping based on age implies a distinct position versus the normative, compare to other types of minorities. Changes of sex, skin colour or sexual preference are uncommon, whereas changing age is the fate of every human being. The elderly as the “the Other” is thus every man’s future destiny. This rather unique position carries an immanent paradox since the only way to avoid the periphery in question is death. As a philosophical counterpoint to this rather dystopian outlook, Gilles Deleuze’s theory of becoming is brought into the discussion. The theoretical part of the essay ends with the ontology of age, a historical review of the field of gerontology and the concept of ageism. After a descriptive section, where contemporary examples of film and other media with old age as a main theme are identified, the analytical part of the essay ensues. With the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu as a theoretical frame of reference, a close reading of the films Avalon (Axel Petersén, 2011), About Schmidt (Alexander Payne, 2002) and RED (Robert Schwentke, 2010) are performed, emphasising aging identity and imposed age-normative behaviour. The semiotics of the aged body is discussed through Jacques Lacans mirror stage and Julia Kristevas abject theory, exemplified by the works of Donigan Cumming. The final part of the essay concerns the great eternal questions within film philosophy: life, death, time and memory, which for the elderly are not merely philosophical concerns but rather notable existential realities. Using Deleuze as a philosophical toolbox, these grand topics are illuminated with examples from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher, 2008), Amour (Michael Haneke, 2012) and Ingmar Bergmans classical works, such as Smultronstället (1957), Saraband (2003) and Gycklarnas afton (1953).

    ”Men dom jag väljer att följa är ju bara personer som tycker precis som jag, väldigt falsk säkerhet.”: En studie om delningar på Facebook2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I denna uppsats studerar vi delningar av artiklar på det sociala mediet Facebook. Syftet är att undersöka informanternas egna tankar, reflektioner och upplevelser av vad de läser och delar med sig av på Facebook. Det vi vill undersöka är användandet av artiklar som opinionsbildande material - så som krönikor, debattinlägg och nyheter. Fokus ligger på att försöka se hur informanternas förhållande till deras åsikter och värderingar påverkas av vad de läser och delar på Facebook, samt hur och varför de använder sig av delningar.

    Vi har genomfört sex stycken kvalitativa intervjuer med informanter mellan 25-38 år, både kvinnor och män. De övergripande frågeställningar vi ville besvara var; Varför väljer informanten att läsa artiklar på Facebook? Varför väljer informanten att dela/dela vidare på Facebook? Hur ser relationen ut mellan de delningar informanten gör och informantens åsikter?

    För analysen har vi främst använt oss av teorierna Uses & Gratifications, som vi hämtat från Lee & Ma (2012), samt Kang et al (2013) för att förklara motivet till delningar och Nyhetsvärdering som baseras på Galtung och Ruge´s kriterier för nyhetsvärdering, för att förklara vad de läser. Vi har även använt oss av Agenda-Setteing och Narcotizing Dysfunction för att närmare kunna förklara motiv, urval och vad resultatet av delningar blir.

    Resultatet visar att informanterna främst delar för att påverka andra och bidra till samhällsdebatten. Samtidigt så anser de att de inte själva blir påverkade av vad andra delar.

    Deconstructing the “Low Other” in the First Wave of Sex Hygiene Films (1914-1919)2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The present thesis investigates the commercial sex hygiene films produced between the years 1914 and 1919 in the United States, during the last years of the Progressive Era. Rejected and prohibited as soon as five years after their apparition, the sex hygiene films’ position within the industry, as well as the cinematic techniques they incorporated, will be analysed through the concept of the Low Other. The first part of the thesis aims to delineate the used concepts, as well as integrate the sex hygiene film into a wider cultural, social, and political framework. The second part explores the films’ aesthetic construction, then focuses on a textual analysis of the narrative and non-narrative methods implied by three particular sex hygiene films. Finally, the thesis concludes that the films used a series of cinematic methods to create a Low Other on-screen, yet these very methods ultimately played a part within their suppression as a Low Other body of culture.

    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har skrivit en artikelserie om en bloggare som går under namnet Corruptio. Det är nu två år sedan bloggaren tycks ha avslutat sin verksamhet. Ännu finns tre av hans bloggar, där hundratals inlägg publicerats mellan år 2009 och 2016, fortfarande kvar.

    Bloggaren har kallats ”norra Europas största näthatare” och har gjort det till sin nisch att anklaga personer för brott som det inte finns några bevis för att de har begått.

    I inläggen kallas personerna som hängs ut ofta för mördare och pedofiler och de anklagas för att ha begått ett flertal brott. Ofta rör det sig om olika former av korruption som personerna ska ha gjort sig skyldiga till. Det kan till exempel vara att de hjälpt till att dölja grova brott som politiker, poliser eller kungligheter ska ha gjort sig skyldiga till.

    Att konstruera naturen: En kvalitativ studie av Volvos Human Made Stories2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay aims to investigate how constructions of nature is conveyed through Volvos Human Made Stories, and what possible effects these constellations might have on a global discourse of environmental issues. Human Made Stories was first published in 2016 and is a series of short films, which according to Volvo seek to inspire it's viewers. By analyzing two of these stories I wish to exemplify how storytelling is used in sales and marketing today. Social constructionism constitutes the scientific basis throughout this essay which main characteristic is to view the world as built by social constructions. In this context, portrays of nature is seen as constructions of reality and nothing else. Previous studies by Fuentes, Helmfrid, Ganetz and Hansen shows how nature has been portrayed in different contexts such as marketing practices, television shows and through the ideological relationship between human and nature. Their work contributes to an understanding of how nature has been and still is portrayed through human eyes and how nature in contexts as these should be seen as constructions and not as a definition of reality. The methods used is a mixture of qualitative approaches where narrative analysis and semiotic tools constitutes a combinational toolkit for establishing how nature is narrated in the two stories. The main theory used is a typology, originally made by Christian Fuentes in his study How Green Marketing Works - Practices, Materealities and Images (2015).  In the study Fuentes localize how different types of nature is portrayed in a context of selling environmental-friendly outdoor products. In addition to Fuentes typology, the concepts of naming, consending symbols and re-framing is used to identify how companies such as Volvo uses different tools to communicate a green profile and a sustainable company. The study shows that the nature in Nemos garden and Maria and Josefin is portrayed in a vary of different ways, mainly represented as fragile and impressive, but also as problematic and as a threat. Nature is also portrayed through narrative roles such as the object, the sender but also the enemy. The constructions of nature is a result from narrative events, where humans constitutes the central role as subjects and where nature is understood as a human object.

    UP CLOSE AND PROFESSIONAL: A Case Study of Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's Communication on Social Media2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It did not take too long before the politicians found the social media sites Twitter and Facebook as good ways to connect to the people and spread their politics. However, due to the somewhat personal origin of these sites, how much of their personal lives do they include within their political reasons for being there? How do they balance the combination of presenting their political and professional self and the personal self? That is what this thesis aim to find out.

    This is not the first research about political communication on social media, but most of the research in this field has focused on the social media communication during an election. This research however, aims to expand this knowledge by gathering material from a non-election period in order to investigate the day-to-day political communication on social media. Due to the length and structure of this thesis I limit my aim and topic to investigating one politicians social media use and thereby making it a case study. Using an interpretive coding with a grounded approach method I investigated Norway’s Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s communication on Twitter and Facebook during the year 2012. By applying theories about visibility, the presentation of the self, image creation and political communication, the aim is to understand how Stoltenberg use these social media sites.

    The focus will be on the content of the communication, the mentioned balance between the professional politician and the personal person, and lastly what of these that create the most engagement from the followers in terms of “likes” and retweets. I find and argue that the balance between the Twitter and Facebook content is relatively even, consisting mostly of professional and informational content, while the balance between the professional Stoltenberg and the personal Jens is uneven in favour for the professional. However, due to Stoltenberg’s popular appeal and “folkelig” image, the person Jens Stoltenberg becomes visible on the sites as well.

    Against the backdrop of changing technological conditions of the contemporary media landscape, new questions arise regarding how audience can be can problematized and theorized. This dissertation seeks to shift the focus from conventional assumptions of what audience is to an empirical exploration of the specificities of the process through which audience is achieved in practice. This involves revisiting and questioning ontological assumptions about the nature of audience.

      The aim of the study is to develop an alternative approach for theorizing audience. A three year and seven months’ exploration of one example of an audience practice, the empirical focus is on the Gallifrey Base, an internet discussion forum for viewers of the TV series Doctor Who. To explore the specifics of audience as reality-in-practice, a methodological approach is developed that adjusts ethnographic research methods to align with a concern with ontology in audience practice – an audienceography. This dissertation thereby makes questions of ontology an empirical concern, drawing attention to how practices make up realities – that is, to how ontology is achieved. By turning to theoretical and methodological insights from Science and Technology Studies (STS), this study sets out to particularize how audience is achieved on the Gallifrey Base.

       Three chapters detail and analyze how practices on the Gallifrey Base achieve audience. Each build on the findings from the previous chapter, attending to ontological ordering in different ways, delving deeper into the details of the unfolding audience practice. The findings show how multiple ontologies can co-exist. In contrast to classic communication models, it is argued that the significance of communication by other means is about more than sending and receiving messages. An implication for the theorization of audience is that communication can have other purposes, as messages may be sent and received in order to maintain a particular communication practice.

      In relation to audience studies, the dissertation makes a theoretical contribution by connecting insights from recent debates on ontology and multiplicity in STS to empirical explorations of audience, thus widening the scope of the theoretical explanatory basis. The empirical contribution is to demonstrate that rather than a natural and stable structure, much work is invested in trying to maintain multiplicity even in the single audience practice of the Gallifrey Base forum. This suggests that ontologically fixed and given theoretical notions of audience are not compatible with contemporary audience practice. Audience practice, it is found, may include a range of multiple modes, which calls for attentiveness to the situated work carried out by various actors in the achievement of audience. In light of these findings, it is argued that approaching audience as ontology-in-practice provides a foundation for further theorizations of contemporary audience.

      Connecting the findings from Ontological Ordering to wider concerns in the humanities and social sciences – a concern with audience becomes a concern with the processes and implications of how we interact with media material and media devices, which in contemporary media environment is intensely technological.

    Think Differently We Must! An AI Manifesto for the Future2023In: AI & Society: The Journal of Human-Centred Systems and Machine Intelligence, ISSN 0951-5666, E-ISSN 1435-5655Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a problematic tradition of dualistic and reductionist thinking in artificial intelligence (AI) research, which is evident in AI storytelling and imaginations as well as in public debates about AI. Dualistic thinking is based on the assumption of a fixed reality and a hierarchy of power, and it simplifies the complex relationships between humans and machines. This commentary piece argues that we need to work against the grain of such logics and instead develop a thinking that acknowledges AI–human interconnectedness and the complexity in such relations. To learn how to live better with AI in futures to come, the paper suggests an AI politics that turns to practices of serious attentiveness to help us re-imagine our machines and re-configure AI–human relations.

    Efterlysta brottslingar får bidrag av staten2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Hundratals personer som har dömts till fängelse går fortfarande fria. Sedan den 1 januari 2012 befinner sig över 800 personer, som i april fortfarande var efterlysta och inte hade fått sina brott preskriberade, på fri fot. Artikelförfattarna har i sin granskning tittat närmare på 50 av personerna.

    Artiklarna avslöjar att flera efterlysta personer, utan att bli upptäckta, kan få hjälp av en rad svenska myndigheter. Trots att de öppet tar del av samhällets bekvämligheter har polisen och Kriminalvården inte lyckats hitta dem. 

    Andra personer i granskningen har haft en registrerad inkomst av tjänst hos Skatteverket under åtminstone ett inkomstår efter efterlysningen. Skatteverket vet därför vem som är utbetalare, men uppgifterna är i dessa fall sekretessbelagda. Klart är att utbetalaren antingen är en myndighet eller en arbetsgivare. Antingen får brottslingarna alltså hjälp av svenska myndigheter, eller så borde de vara lätta för polisen att hitta.

    Artikelförfattarna har också tittat närmare på ett fall. En internationellt efterlyst konstbedragare levde ett öppet liv och använde myndigheternas tjänster i flera år trots att hon borde ha suttit i fängelse.

    Åtta år efter den första efterlysningen ville Kriminalvården bredda den internationella efterlysningen till att gälla även utanför Europa. Detta trots att den efterlysta konstbedragen under de senaste åren hade använt sig och fått hjälp av Försäkringskassan, Skatteverket, Pensionsmyndigheten, Kronofogden, Folktandvården, Transportstyrelsen, förvaltningsrätten, sin hemkommun och flera olika sjukhus. I sin kontakt med myndigheterna angav hon flera gånger sin bostadsadress.

    A Journey on the World’s most Northerly Railway: Renaming and Remaking of Swedish Industrial Films2021In: Provenance and Early Cinema / [ed] Joanne Bernardi, Paolo Cherchi Usai, Tami Williams, Joshua Yumibe, Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2021, p. 223-235Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the early 1900s, Swedish industries with the steel industry as the perhaps most prominent, were together with an energy market in transition pivotal for societal changes.  With very limited deposits of coal and oil but vast resources of waterpower in the north of Sweden, or “white coal” as it was called, the power company Vattenfall became a major force for power supplies and electrification of Swedish industries. The close ties between the steel industry and Vattenfall’s expansion of hydroelectric power including the electrification of the railway Malmbanan that was inaugurated in 1903 for the strategic transportation of iron ore, from the northern Swedish town Luleå, and Riksgränsen to Narvik at the Norwegian Atlantic coast, where decisive for the rapid growth of infrastructure. 

    As Rick Prelinger and others have shown, industrial companies—in Sweden as elsewhere—became extensive users of visual media. Their multiple advertisement campaigns disclose the scope of possibilities at hand as well as it shows a change of focus over time, teaching the public how to understand and navigate in modern society. This text explore, by findings in company archives such as Swedish Pathé and Vattenfall together with the rich resources that the Swedish censorship board holds, the provenance of the multiple film titles about Malmbanan that appeared in film programs all over the country during the years 1910-1915. The railroad and the hydropower station at Porjus, north of the polar circle, with its principal purpose to provide the railway with electricity, received major attention not only as an icon of modernity but for its spectacular sceneries in the northern wilderness, as in Med jordens nordligaste järnväg: en färd Narvik-Riksgränsen (AB Sveafilms, 1911). Numerous film titles were made, often screened at regular movie theaters. Specific film titles were copied, renamed and repositioned within new company distribution networks as well as program contexts making the origin of the productions unclear. To further obstruct the question of provenance a slew of new films was made on the very same topic with very similar titles. By focusing on these film titles and their provenance, early film practices and print circulations when it comes to early non-fiction and industrial films in Sweden are examined and explored.

    Corporeality and Female Modernity: Intermediality and Early Film Celebrities2018In: The Image in Early Cinema: Form and Material / [ed] Scott Curtis, Philippe Gauthier, Tom Gunning, Joshua Yumibe, Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2018, p. 174-184Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As Victorianism lost its grip and industrialism entered a new phase, gender roles and the expressions of femininity became malleable and negotiable. Women’s new independence and mobility in modern society, particularly in the large cities, ushered in a “female modernity” underpinned by the relaxing of dress codes with a sporty look mirroring a general reconfiguring of women’s range of physical options. In the process, the New Woman became an entry in the cultural lexicon.

    The purpose of this article is to explore the female body as a key site for inscribing and performing modernity across media during the first 15 years of the 20th century. The cultural conception of this modern type of femininity, characterized by independence, resourcefulness—and exploitation as the flipside—found its template in the female film stars and their physical wherewithal and abilities at large, especially in the serial films. Outside cinema, the desirable stars were marketed in newspapers, trade papers, women’s magazines, and ads, even in autobiographical works. The intense mediatisation of the life styles and panache embodied by these women on and off screen blended into a complex and iconic cocktail of modern femininity, attractive for some, shocking for others. In the early 1910s, a radical change can be observed concerning the concept of female celebrities at large across many fields of endeavor with cinema driving the process by repurposing images across media formats such as postcards, advertisements, and printed illustrations.

    The key issues of this article are: To analyze screen-action heroine Pearl White and Annette Kellerman, an Australian professional swimmer turned vaudeville and film star in the US, as two comparative career case studies. The discourses around their achievements and celebrity will be discussed from advertisements, news and trade press articles, photographic collectibles, and a phalanx of promotional materials forming rounded career stories around two emblematic New Women; To investigate female film stars in relation to discursive negotiations of social mobility, independence, gender roles, and corporeal ideals across media.

    Exporting Perilous Pauline: Pearl White and serial film craze2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Exceptionally popular during their time, the spectacular American action film serials of the 1910s featured exciting stunts, film tricks, and effects set against the background of modern technology, often starring resourceful female heroines who displayed traditionally male qualities such as endurance, strength, and authority. The most renowned of these "serial queens" was Pearl White, whose career as the adventurous character Pauline developed during a transitional phase in the medium's evolving production strategies, distribution and advertising patterns, and fan culture. In this volume, an international group of scholars explores how American serials starring Pearl White and other female stars affected the emerging cinemas in the United States and abroad. Contributors investigate the serial genre and its narrative patterns, marketing, cultural reception, and historiographic importance, with essays on Pearl White's life on and off the screen as well as the "serial queen" genre in Western and Eastern Europe, India, and China.

    Contributors are Weihong Bao, Rudmer Canjels, Marina Dahlquist, Monica Dall'Asta, Kevin B. Johnson, Christina Petersen, and Rosie Thomas.

    Abstract [en]

    The early 20th century teemed with progressive initiatives aimed at improving and modernizing American everyday life. These uplift campaigns, initiated in top-down fashion, zoomed in on sanitation, working conditions, childcare, education, and recreation. The strive for better health conditions brought together a cross-section of civic movements and organizations, which in turn inspired the implementation of governmental infrastructures at federal, state or municipal level.

    In exhibitions and campaign work, visual materials were often used in order to catch the public’s attention. Moving pictures’ putative pedagogical might and potential for civic education underpinned the work to raise awareness about modern society and its social and sanitary shortcomings, or ”evils” in contemporary vernacular. From 1910 on, and in this spirit, moving pictures were regularly taken up as a pedagogical tool for health campaigns in a multitude of contexts across the U.S. Even if moving pictures were perhaps the most important vehicle for public health work, an array of visual media was brought together for maximum intermedial exposure for the causes at hand:  lantern slides, models, posters, pamphlets, cartoons, billboards, newspaper articles and ads.

    An important venue, in a sense summing up an array of visual health campaigns and placing them adjacent to each other, as it were, within a broader form of exhibition practice, was the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco 1915. This chapter explores the health exhibits and their use of media at PPE in the multitude of national as well as international projects put on display. Among the participants were the Rockefeller Sanitary Commission for the Eradication of Hookworm Disease (a campaign that would get a more international direction after 1915), the U.S. sanitary campaign in Panama, the Bureau of Public Health Education (a specialized branch within the Department of Health of the City of New York), the Fly-Fighting Committee of the American Civic Association, to mention only a select few. And for additional emphasis, October 12, 1915 was singled out as a Health Day at the exhibition. Due to the anthology of sanitary displays in place, PPE became a key progressive hub by putting public health on the agenda and creating added social awareness for such issues. Furthermore, these didactic initiatives and exhibition practices would serve as a model also for future work outside the U.S.

    Abstract [en]

    Before the 1948-founding of the World Health Organization, the International Health Board/Division (IHB) was the world’s leading agency for public health work. Its efforts emanated from Rockefeller Sanitary Commission (1909-1914), inaugurated to shape a health infrastructure in the American South and mainly to eradicate hookworms. The singling out of hookworms and the ”laziness epidemic” in the south was due to it being an easily identifiable, treatable, and preventable disease calling for public health initiatives.

    IHB’s initial efforts were directed towards the British West Indies. My paper will discuss the international campaign strategies aimed at cultural reconciliation by eliminating differences in sanitary and social conditions worldwide. The political implications were considerate: the disease was associated with crime and degeneracy—and social activism and health campaigns came with an Americanization slant. IHB hoped to spread the European and American ”scientific model” of public health and make it a universal norm. In the process, scores of media were mobilized to spread medical awareness defined as a civilizing project. The Rockefeller-film Unhooking the Hookworm (1920) was the key educational tool. It became a centerpiece in the organization’s medial education and the film’s multiple versions neatly illustrate their search for a formula with an international appeal in trans-cultural contexts for diverse audiences. This text discuss campaigns initiated by the IHB in British Guiana, Jamaica and Puerto Rico, during the period 1914-1932. I will focus on the strategies, the problems encountered by health officers, the visual materials used—and the intricacies of local receptions.

    The Institutionalization of Educational Cinema: North America and Europe in the 1910s and 1920s2019Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The potential of films to educate has been crucial for the development of cinema intended to influence culture, and is as important as conceptions of film as a form of art, science, industry, or entertainment. Using the concept of institutionalization as a heuristic for generating new approaches to the history of educational cinema, contributors to this volume study the co-evolving discourses, cultural practices, technical standards, and institutional frameworks that transformed educational cinema from a convincing idea into an enduring genre. The Institutionalization of Educational Cinema examines the methods of production, distribution, and exhibition established for the use of educational films within institutions–such as schools, libraries, and industrial settings in various national and international contexts and takes a close look at the networks of organizations, individuals, and government agencies that were created as a result of these films' circulation. Through case studies of educational cinemas in different North American and European countries that explore various modes of institutionalization of educational film, this book highlights the wide range of vested interests that framed the birth of educational and nontheatrical cinema.

    Corporeality in Early Cinema: Viscera, Skin, and Physical Form2018Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Corporeality in Early Cinema inspires a heightened awareness of the ways in which early film culture, and screen praxes overall are inherently embodied. Contributors argue that on- and offscreen (and in affiliated media and technological constellations), the body consists of flesh and nerves and is not just an abstract spectator or statistical audience entity.

    Audience responses from arousal to disgust, from identification to detachment, offer us a means to understand what spectators have always taken away from their cinematic experience. Through theoretical approaches and case studies, scholars offer a variety of models for stimulating historical research on corporeality and cinema by exploring the matrix of screened bodies, machine-made scaffolding, and their connections to the physical bodies in front of the screen.

    Petrocinema: Sponsored Film and the Oil Industry2021Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Petrocinema presents a collection of essays concerning the close relationship between the oil industry and modern mediaespecially film. Since the early 1920s, oil extracting companies such as Standard Oil, Royal Dutch/Shell, ConocoPhillips, or Statoil have been producing and circulating moving images for various purposes including research and training, safety, process observation, or promotion. Such industrial and sponsored films include documentaries, educationals, and commercials that formed part of a larger cultural project to transform the image of oil exploitation, creating media interfaces that would allow corporations to coordinate their goals with broader cultural and societal concerns. Falling outside of the domain of conventional cinema, such films firmly belong to an emerging canon of sponsored and educational film and media that has developed over the past decade. Contributing to this burgeoning field of sponsored and educational film scholarship, chapters in this book bear on the intersecting cultural histories of oil extraction and media history by looking closely at moving image imaginaries of the oil industry, from the earliest origins or spills in the 20th century to todays post industrial petromelancholia.

    Ekologisk skuldbeläggning?: En kvantitativ och kvalitativ receptionsstudie om Coops film Ekoeffekten2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ”Ekologisk skuldbeläggning?” är en receptionsstudie författad av Erica Rohlin och Josefin Dahlqvist vid Stockholms Universitet på institutionen för mediestudier vårterminen 2016. Uppsatsen ämnade undersöka hur ett urval av en yngre generation (18-30 år) i Stockholm förhåller sig till Coops film Ekoeffekten, som utformats för att få människor att köpa mer ekologisk mat. Kritik har riktats mot Coops film Ekoeffekten och det står som grund för att utföra en kritisk granskning i form av en receptionsstudie. Det teoretiska ramverket utgår ifrån propaganda, hälsokommunikation, kampanjer och CSR. Teorierna är sedermera sammankopplade med resultat från en kvantitativ surveyundersökning samt två kvalitativa fokusgruppsintervjuer. Resultatet visade att ämnet skuldbeläggning var något som framgick i fokusgruppsintervjuerna, vilket tyder på att detta var en aspekt respondenterna uppfattade mer än andra. Deltagarna ansåg att Coop genom Ekoeffekten placerar skuld på familjen Palmberg och sedermera på konsumenter som inte handlar ekologisk mat. Vidare visade en korrelationstabell på ett samband som kan styrka att Coop gör närmande mot skrämselpropaganda, då en del deltagare blev oroliga för sin hälsa baserat på Coops studie, gjord av IVL, som saknar vetenskaplig signifikans. Respondenterna från surveyundersökningen samt fokusgruppsintervjun visade att de uppfattar Ekoeffekten som en kombinerad informations- och reklamkampanj. Fokusgruppsintervjun visade respondenternas provocerande attityd gentemot detta, vilket inte gick att avläsa från surveyundersökningen. Detta eftersom Ekoeffekten troligtvis inte är provocerande vid en första anblick, utan det är vid vidare diskussioner som åsikter och attityder kom till tals.

    Viktrelaterade tillstånd och moral: En kvalitativ studie om Aftonbladets nyhetsrapportering om fetma och ätstörningar2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Både fetma och ätstörningar klassificeras som viktrelaterade tillstånd som har förknippats med ökad risk för olika hälsoåkommor. En skillnad sinsemellan är dock statusen på de kroppar som respektive tillstånd associeras till, där övervikt stigmatiseras medan smalhet tvärtom idealiseras. Vidare är nyhetsmedia en institution i vårt samhälle som både eftersträvar objektivitet samt har en informerande funktion, och bör därmed idealt sätt inte reproducera ovanstående. Det är även i detta spänningsfält som denna uppsats tar avstamp, mer specifikt genom att undersöka hur fetma och ätstörningar representeras i totalt 8 artiklar från online-versionen av Aftonbladet. Frågeställningarna är mer specifikt ”Hur konstrueras fetma och ätstörningar i 8 artiklar från Aftonbladet” samt ”Vilka värderingar går att utläsa om människor med tillstånden i artiklarna?”. Dessa besvaras med hjälp av framing som teoretiskt verktyg - där ett särskilt fokus placeras på hur artiklarna inramar tillstånden i relation till ansvar, närhet och moral - samt kritisk diskursanalys som metod, vilket möjliggör ett maktperspektiv i analysen. Efter avslutad analys har även svar på dessa frågor utkristalliserats. Resultatet påvisar hur fetma och ätstörningar på flera sätt konstrueras på motsatt sätt i de undersökta artiklarna, där konstruktionen av fetma upprättar en distans till enskilda individer och erbjuder en huvudsaklig medicinsk läsning av tillståndet, medan ätstörningar tvärtom etablerar en närhet till specifika personer, medan en distans till ätstörningar som sjukdom upprättas. Detta kommer även till uttryck i de värderingar som går att utläsa i artiklarna, där det uttrycks negativa värderingar om människor med fetma, medan ätstörningar istället associeras med nästintill positiva värderingar. Sammantaget kan en säga att artiklarna om fetma skapar en negativ bild av både tillståndet och människor med tillståndet, medan artiklarna om ätstörningar istället skapar empati för enskilda personer, men däremot förringar allvarligheten i den faktiska sjukdomen.

    Dominanta och undergivna män: En studie av mäns representation i Sex & the City2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses in which way men are shown in the first season of the popular TV-series Sex and The City. The purpose is to find out which types of men that are being portrayed in the show and if there area any structural power positions within the relationships in the show.

    The paper has it’s base in theories about male stereotypes and power structures and use these theories to disect every male character of every episode.

    Analysing the collected data gave a result in which some male stereotypes from the real world are not represented at all in the show and some stereotypes are heavily over represented in the show. The men from all groups try to chase their dreams, have a successfull love life and career while trying to be accepted by the women in the show. Some men manage to break norms and still be accepted and some men don’t.

    Tidningen GQ och populärkulturell objektifiering: En historisk studie av omslag i förändring mellan 1958-20132014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte: Uppsatsens syfte är att analysera tidningen GQ:s omslag mellan åren 1958-2013 för att ta reda på om patriarkala strukturer går att urskilja i omslagens text- och bildspråk. Jag vill specifikt undersöka hur män och kvinnor framställs på omslagen och hur detta kan ha förändrats mellan åren 1958-2013.

    Teori: Eriksson och Göthlunds Möten med bilder (2004) har legat som grund för att förstå hur jag skulle analysera mitt bildmaterial och Kuhn (1985), Mulvey (1999) och Tasker (2011) har bidragit med viktiga begrepp att använda som analysverktyg. Van Zoonens (2004) redogörelse för feminism har också varit en väsentlig del. Kompletterande relevant litteratur tas också upp i arbetet. Vidare har även Anja Hirdmans tidigare forskning i området med boken Den ensamma fallosen (2008) och doktorsavhandlingen Tilltalande bilder: genus, sexualitet och publiksyn i Veckorevyn och FIB aktuellt (2001) varit viktigt för att förstå mitt analysmaterial.

    Metod: Samtliga 599 omslag från GQ:s arkiv mellan våren 1958-2013 har studerats innan jag valde ut 28 av dem att analysera semiotiskt. Jag har framför allt tittat på bilder men även vävt in relevant text i min analys. Jag har utgått ifrån Eriksson och Göthlunds beskrivning av semiotiken i boken Möten med bilder (2004) och deras genomgång av Roland Barthes denotation- och konnotationsbegrepp.

     

    Resultatredovisning: Jag fann att GQ:s omslag i hög grad präglas av patriarkala strukturer i både text- och bildspråk. Hur dessa strukturer har format omslagen har förändrats mellan 1958-2013 men de har varit ständigt närvarande.

    Vidare forskning: Skulle kunna gå in på framställning av olika etniciteter, förslagsvis också med en feministisk förankring.

    Den granskande makten: Institutionell identitet och rättsnarrativ i SVT:s Uppdrag granskning2016Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Journalism is one of many institutions dealing with transgressions at a societal level. This dissertation is partly about how it has come to occupy that position, but foremost about how practicing that mission constructs and defines journalism as a social institution and constructs identity, legitimacy and power. The object of study is one of the most high-profile programs of investigative television journalism in Sweden, Uppdrag granskning (Mission Investigate), which is analyzed as an instrumental case study.A quantitative content analysis of all 1,034 of Uppdrag granskning’s episodes broadcast between 2001-2014 shows that the public sector is more investigated than the private, and that Vård och omsorg (social care), Ordningsmakt (society monitoring power) and Handel och industri (trade and industry) are the most frequently investigated fields. Whereas the fields of Media (media), Kultur (culture) and Genus (gender) are fields investigated to a minor degree. Politicians and other public officials are more often the objects of investigation than other professional groups. A narrative analysis of five episodes shows how investigations construct journalism’s institutional identity, and reproduce and legitimize journalistic power when presented in the form of a legal narrative. The dissertation also features results of an interview study with five of Uppdrag granskning’s journalists. They give their own perspectives and reflections about investigative journalism and power.The results of the qualitative analysis show how the examined episodes of Uppdrag granskning construct journalism as an institution that: (1) identifies what is wrong in society, and who is responsible, (2) acts as a constructor and guardian of societal moral, (3) interacts in an intricate way with the formal legal system, investigating it, collaborating with it andsometimes stepping in where it fails, (4) exercises a form of justice that is mainly retributive towards those investigated, serves to restitute victims and by means of an emotional focus endeavors to engage and activate viewers’ sense of justice, (5) justifies means of deception and deceit to expose wrongdoing, (6) faces the creative challenge of shouldering the journalistic mission to investigate in a just and fair way, while at the same time making sure the investigations are dramatic and interesting enough to be worth watching on prime time television.

    Researching Emotional Experiences as Discursive Elements: A Suggested Qualitative Method2024In: The Qualitative Report, ISSN 1052-014, Vol. 29, no 5Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As scholars in the fields of political science, media research, and social psychology endeavor to understand crucial aspects of emotionality in the media, there is a growing need to methodologically address the communicative and discursive aspects of affective constructions in media texts. This article argues that by breaking down mediated emotional experiences represented through language in a set of identifiable elements, such as subject, emotion type, valence, intensity, proposed action, and object, those experiences could be used as workable and potent units of analysis when studying discursive and ideological media constructs of emotionality. By connecting insights from emotion science, the sociology of emotions, and media sociology, the qualitative method outlined, Emotional Experience Profiling (EEP), provides a flexible research tool conducive to an understanding of how emotional experiences represented through language in media texts are constructed and how they shape political discourse, identity, and emotional cultures. To demonstrate and illustrate the application of the method, the article provides examples from a pilot study which explores the research question: How do emotional experiences featured in Swedish far-right alternative news media construct and articulate political discourse?

    "Shaming the Devil!": Performative Shame in Investigative Journalism2013In: Nordicom Review, ISSN 1403-1108, E-ISSN 2001-5119, Vol. 34, p. 61-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the performativity of shaming in investigative TV-journalism. Itargues that the construction of shame is not only a constituent element in investigative TVjournalismbut also an important factor in pursuing some of its main objectives: establishingmorals, exercising social control, reinforcing journalistic identity and ideology, and competingfor attention in a diversified media theatre where drama, entertainment and emotionalthrills are the hard currency. An empirical study of the Swedish TV programme Uppdraggranskning, is used to inductively propose three categories of shaming and to give someexamples of the ways in which shaming is performed. The core of the paper is a theorydriven analysis in which the performativity of shaming in investigative TV-journalism isanalysed in the light of some converging media and societal trends.

    Politicians as entertainers - a political performance of the personal2020In: Continuum. Journal of Media and Cultural Studies, ISSN 1030-4312, E-ISSN 1469-3666, Vol. 34, no 5, p. 733-748Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Appearances on entertainment television constitute opportunities for politicians, not only to convey political messages, but also to perform personality. Most research has focused on the interview setting as the locus of such performances. But in addition to being interviewed, politicians occasionally turn entertainers themselves, dancing, singing, playing instruments or doing comedy. This article analyses such performances as a specific communicative practice that plays a part in the construction of public persona. The analysis is theory driven and based upon the concepts of personalization of politics, performativity and the carnivalesque. Our conclusion is that such performances have the potential to communicate emotive sociality, accentuate celebrity status, construct ordinariness and work as a pre-emptive inoculation against satire and ridicule. There is, however, also a risk to appear undignified and scrupulously populist involved, since the performances negotiate borders of political decency.

    Missing People: en ny folkrörelse i den svenska pressen: En kritisk diskursanalys av hur svenska tidningar framställer den ideella organisationen Missing People2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is that on the basis of news reports about Missing People Sweden investigate how the non-profit organization is exposed in Swedish newspapers in three high-profile news events that took place between April 2012 and May 2013. The study analyses how the individual organisation in relationship to other actors, like authorities and institutions, is constructed.

     

    The essay is based on theories of media-logic, power, private and government initiatives. The analysis takes the support of the above-mentioned theories and compares the different newspapers presentation. The approach is qualitative and the method used is van Dijk's socio-cognitive approach to critical discourse analysis. The survey exhibits that media is part of the build-up of the positive media image of Missing People which has its explanation in the authorities and institutions insufficient management of these issues.

    Between Challenge and Limitation: Blogging the Bulgarian Elections 20112012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The constant change of the political, economic, cultural and environmental landscapes of global societies predetermined the upgrowth of the media, the journalistic writings and the blogging practices as a new way of “citizen journalism”. Political blogs are a quite new media phenomenon that gained popularity in the past few years in Bulgaria. Hence, there are limited theoretical case studies.  The lagging performance of Bulgaria in the last Reporters Without Borders Report 2011 together with the explicit recommendations of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) after the Presidential and Municipal Elections 2011 in terms of media policy, ownership and news coverage bring the question of limited freedom of speech and the emergence of the blogs as an alternative platform for expression into discussion. Two methods are used in this thesis: structured interviews with two different additional questions and Critical Discourse Analysis. The empirical material was gathered from interviews with 8 of the most influential bloggers in Bulgaria (5 of whom work as journalists) and through an analysis of the texts of their blog entries (2 articles per bloggers or 18 articles in total). The aim is to underline the possible limitations in the practice of freedom of speech in Bulgaria from the bloggers’ perspective and to show only major patterns of the social environment and the current discourse in Bulgaria. Among the main findings of this study are thаt the lack of clarity in the media ownership and the failure of the media to defend the public interest are alarming for the level of democracy. Moreover, the media dependence on power and lobbying circles, as well as the blurred boundary between politics and the media results in the media self-censhorship and thus are threatening for the democratic foundation in Bulgaria and the freedom of speech which is at its basis. This study confirms the thriving of the blogosphere as an alternative media platform. This paper aims to provide insights and policy recommendations for international media experts.
