Abstract [en]

The essay is, based on the theories of celebrity culture and dialogue, what we regard as the development and establishment of a public persona. The specific case we are studying is Anna Anka who participated in the Swedish Reality TV show Svenska Hollywoodfruar. Our questions are; what qualities are prominent in the reporting of Anna Anka? How are those qualities built up in the texts? In what way are these articles linked to each other? 

There has not been much studies made in the subject of how a non-public persona is becoming public through media attention. We however guided through the scientific articles to see what has been examined so far and in what ways. What we are missing from the earlier research that has been made was scientific studies built on empirical results. The research that has been made in this subject, that is relevant for our study, includes studies on humiliation in RTV-program, the cultural impact RTV has and television’s creation of personalities. 

Through a strategic choice we selected ten articles from two Swedish tabloids, Aftonbladet and Expressen. Using text analysis method and dialogue perspective, we systematically worked through the articles. The most important tools for us in text analysis were to ensure the themes, the underlying meaning, attitudes and perspectives. Given our purpose and our research questions, we have come up to the following conclusion. Anna Anka’s prominent qualities in the reporting of her, is the control and the influence she has in media. Another leading quality is to humiliate her. These qualities are built up by a majority of the articles we analyzed.  The articles are partly linked to each other by highlighting the same themes more than once. These main themes together with other influences are contributing to a common dialogue in the buildup of Anna Anka´s public persona.
