    Understanding Accumulation: The Relevance of Marx’s Theory of Primitive Accumulation in Media and Communication Studies2012In: tripleC (cognition, communication, co-operation): Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society / Unified Theory of Information Research Group, ISSN 1726-670X, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 156-170Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to discuss and use Marx’s theory on primitive accumulation, outlined in the first volume of Capital, in relation to media and communication research. In order to develop Marx’s argument the discussion is revitalized through Harvey’s concept of accumulation by dispossession. The article focuses on two different fields within media and communication research where the concept of accumulation by dispossession is applicable. First, the role of news media content, news flows and news media systems are discussed in relation to social mobilization against capitalism, privatizations, and the financial sector. Second, Marx’s theory is used to examine how communication in Web 2.0 and the development of ICTs could advance the processes of capital accumulation by appropriating the work performed by users of Web 2.0 and by increasing the corporate surveillance of Internet users. In conclusion, by analyzing how primitive accumulation is intertwined with contemporary expanded reproduction of capital, the article shows that Marx’s theory can contribute to critical media and communication research in several ways.

    Exploring the Notion of Information: A Proposal for a Multifaced Understanding2011In: tripleC (cognition, communication, co-operation): Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society / Unified Theory of Information Research Group, ISSN 1726-670X, E-ISSN 1726-670X, Vol. 9, no 2, p. 305-315Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Man’s notion of ‘information’ is essential as it guides human thinking, planning, and consequent actions. Situationssuch as the Haiti earthquake in 2010, the financial crisis in Greece in 2010, and the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico in2010 are just a few instances of constant growing empirical dilemmas in our global society where information plays a centralrole. The meaning of what information is has clear implications for how we deal with it in our practical lives, which in turnmay give rise to situations that we would prefer to be without. In this sense, the notion of information has evidently presentedthe need to question what it really means and how it dominates the functioning of our global society. To address thisfundamental issue of information, two questions are explored and presented in this paper: What notions of information aredominating the scholarly literature? And what are the differences between these notions? To answer these questions, wehave conducted a comprehensive literature survey of more than two hundred scholarly publications. Detailed analyses ofthe content of these publications identified four kinds of forms of information notions. The results show that these four formspresent diverse and opposing views of the notion of information, labelled as the ‘quartet model of information’. These addressdifferent foci, contexts, and challenges. In addition, we propose an alternative and novel understanding of the notionof information, associated with how information functions in our global society. This understanding offers a new perspectiveintended to address significant needs of the information society.
