Foreign news: a flagship of the nation in an age of globalization

Abstract [en]

This chapter is about the journalistic genre termed foreign news and examines the development of the genre during a time period that spans from the last years of the Cold War in the 1980s to the years after the new millenium after September 11, 2001. Articles from the Swedish press published in 1987, 1995, and 2002 are analyzed in relation to notions of globalization. I argue that throughout the time period surveyed, which coincides with the period when the concept of globalization entered academic as well as public discussion to become a generic paradigm, foreign news remained largely unaffected by de-nationalizing tendencies and moreover increased its use of exoticizing perspectives. This development in foreign news contradicts theories of globalization that stress de-nationalization and de-exoticization. In fact, in an age of alleged globalization, foreign news is still steered by the “will to nationhood,” and acts as a flagship of the nation.
