Abstract [en]

The mediatization of everyday life implies that media practices increasingly (re)shape social relations within family life (Clarke, 2014). Devices such as the smart phone and the tablet computer have become mundane tools, integrated in most children’s everyday life. An intricate repertoire of media practices reshape family relations and create new, and reinforce old, family conflicts. However, despite the rapid change in the social practices of children’s life, as a result of a more advanced media use, there is surprisingly little research on media related family conflicts. A growing body of scholarly work highlights the impact and consequences of children’s digital media use, but the amount of empirical studies that actually assess family conflict as an object of inquiry are few. In an attempt to fill this research gap, this paper aims to assess how children and parents view and deal with conflicts associated with children’s increasingly advanced media use in relation to contemporary family life. The analysis is based on survey data from 1597 children in Sweden. Moreover, the paper also includes an analysis of more than 30 qualitative interviews with children and parents. The paper highlights the implications of new (and old) media use of children in relation to the family context – scrutinizing both children’s and parents’ perspective on conflicts and conflict negotiations in everyday life situations. The paper includes a theoretical framework for the study, findings from the large scale quantitative data, and a preliminary analysis from the qualitative interviews with parents and children.
