    Intentional and unintentional transnationalism: two political identities repressed by national identity in the news media2011In: National Identities, ISSN 1460-8944, E-ISSN 1469-9907, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 35-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores how the powerful mechanisms of nation-state discourse in the news media obscure emerging constructions of transnational political thought and action. With the aid of empirical examples from qualitative media studies on critical events extensively covered by the news media, the article demonstrates how national identity in the news media represses transnational political identities of the intentional as well as the unintentional kind.

    Mediesamhället: centrala begrepp2009Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idag ökar medvetenheten om mediernas viktiga roll i samhället inom olika vetenskapliga discipliner. Denna bok möter det växande kunskapsbehovet genom att på ett pedagogiskt sätt presentera en rad olika perspektiv på mediesamhället, eller närmare bestämt relationen mellan medier och samhälle; hur de förra inverkar på och medskapar det senare. Författarna tar bland annat upp frågan om vilken mediernas roll är för skapandet av maktförhållanden, offentligheter, identiteter, mobilitet, risker och interaktiva processer. Vad finns det för forskning om detta, och hur kan man inkludera medierna i sin egen samhällsforskning?Denna introduktion till studier om mediesamhället riktar sig till studenter, lärare och forskare inom medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap, men också till andra samhällsvetenskapliga discipliner. Boken är skriven av medie- och kommunikationsvetare från sju universitet och högskolor i Sverige.Redaktörer är Peter Berglez och Ulrika Olausson, Örebro universitet. Övriga medverkande är: Ester Appelgren, Ulf Buskqvist, Jesper Falkheimer, Heike Graf, Mats Heide, Birgitta Höijer, André Jansson, Stig-Arne Nohrstedt, Tobias Olsson och Linda Ryan Bengtsson.

    Towards a renewed Research Agenda for Media Studies on Climate Change2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to outline a renewed research agenda for media studies on climate change. This field is rather young, and so far, researchers have primarily tended to analyse media content and –although to a much lesser extent –citizens’ representations of climate change in relation to media discourse. Thus, the field is still in the phase of mapping out media representations of climate change from various perspectives (scientific, democratic, political, visual, emotional, etc.). Admittedly, this is an essential task for obtaining basic knowledge on climate reporting and its implications, but the timely question now is how media research on climate change might theoretically and empirically evolve, and move into the next phase. In this paper, we identify four important research challenges which we believe should be considered by scholars in the field: 1) the practical challenge, 2) the normative challenge, 3) the discursive challenge, and 4) the interdisciplinary challenge

    To spray or not to spray: the discursive construction of contested environmental issues in the news media2013In: Discourse, Context & Media, ISSN 2211-6958, E-ISSN 2211-6966, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 123-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper focuses on the role of the news media in the (re)definition of contested environmental issues. It analyzes how the media, by means of various discursive strategies, legitimize or de-legitimize different claims about how to handle environmental issues. Guided by critical discourse analysis, the paper analyzes the news reporting on two cases of insect outbreaks in Sweden: one which resulted in spraying and one which did not. The analysis concludes that the production of hegemonic meaning on contested environmental issues – i.e.  the process by which certain definitions of how to understand and manage them emerge victorious from the discursive struggle between stakeholders – is closely linked to journalistic routines, as well as to media logic in general and to the media’s difficulties in handling scientific uncertainty in particular.

    Global Warming - Global Responsibility?: Media Frames of Collective Action and Scientific Certainty2009In: Public Understanding of Science, ISSN 0963-6625, E-ISSN 1361-6609, Vol. 18, no 4, p. 421-436Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing interconnectedness of the world that characterizes the process of globalization compels us to interlink local, national, and transnational phenomena, such as environmental risks, in both journalistic and academic discourse. Among environmental risks of global scope climate change is probably the one receiving the most attention at present, not least in the media. Globalization notwithstanding, national media are still dominated by a national logic in the presentation of news, and tensions arise between this media logic and the transnational character of environmental risks that call for a collective responsibility transcending the borders of the nation-states. This article presents results from studies of the construction of global climate change in three Swedish newspapers. It discusses the media’s attribution of responsibility for collective action along an axis ranging from local to national to transnational, and highlights the media’s reluctance to display any kind of scientific uncertainty that would undermine the demand for collective action. The results underline the media’s responsiveness to the political setting in which they operate and the growing relevance of the transnational political realm of Europe for the construction of news frames on global climate change in European national media.

    Medborgarskap och globalisering: den diskursiva konstruktionen av politisk identitet2005Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This study takes as its point of departure the theorizing on citizenship and globalization. Today it is common to discuss a “flexible” citizenship beyond the paradigm of the nationstate, which, besides its legal aspects of rights and obligations, also includes identification with and participation in various communities, primarily political ones. “Politics”, in this context, is considered to be constituted on the micro-level, discursively between individuals (e.g. Laclau and Mouffe 1985).

    The aim of the study is to, through the study of collective meaning making, contribute to the theory building about citizenship and globalization. The study consists of three cases, each of which attracted much media attention, with varying degrees of proximity and distance. The construction of political community, on various levels on the globalization scale (subnational, national, transnational) within the collective meaning making, is studied.

    The aim of the study also includes the analysis of the discursive resources that are used for the making of meaning. “External” discourses such as media messages and interpersonal communication are analyzed as well as “internal” ones: e.g. values, norms, identifications and experiences. In addition, the study aims at localizing the construction of meaning and community within the structural context , and relating it to current structures of power. The thesis is concluded with a suggestion of how to relate the discursive construction of political identity to deliberative democracy theory.

    The empirical material is collected by means of focus-groups interviews, including 2–5 people, with a total of 133 respondents. The transcribed material is analyzed by means of critical discourse analysis, CDA.

    The study identifies two different types of identity constructions: processes of nationalization, where the experienced Swedish identity and community function normatively in the making of meaning, and processes of subnationalization, among those groups that somehow felt excluded from and mistreated by the national (Swedish) environment. The thesis concludes that the collective making of meaning within an assumed national community contains ideological elements and works to a large extent in the service of power. However, the subnationally compressed communities create meaning in an oppositional manner, compared with the nationalized community and in relation to structures of power.  Active citizenship is thus best located in conflict, among groups that experience exclusion and oppression in different situations (Mouffe 1995b). If this is right, the focus must shift from consensus to communication, efforts to open up discursive bridges between the hegemonic community and dissident voices should be made (c.f. Aronowitz 1995). An important space for transgressing communication is of course the media. However, the study shows that the media must deal with some problems before they are ready to serve as discursive bridges, for instance the tendency to make the factual antagonisms subordinate to homogenizing emotional reporting. In addition, there seems to exist a need for the political institutions to move beyond the paradigm of the nation-state, and find other frameworks for the democratic processes, not least at the subnational level. Thus, instead of discussing either a global or a national citizenship one could, with Habermas (2001), reflect on a postnational citizenship relating to the reflexive transformation of national civic sovereignty into subnational and supranational citizenship.

    Theorizing global media as global discourse2013In: International Journal of Communication, ISSN 1932-8036, E-ISSN 1932-8036, Vol. 7, p. 1281-1297Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within the field of global media studies, there is an ongoing conflict between the globalists, who emphasize the media’s pertinent role in globalization processes, and the skeptics, who stress the continuing stability of the nation-state paradigm as regards the media. Nonetheless, these two positions share one fundamental view on global media: that the proper objects of study are those media whose global nature is defined in terms of geographic reach. In the discourse perspective theorized in this article, however, “globality” is instead viewed as a discursive feature. It is argued that the established understanding of global media as media of transnational reach needs to be complemented with a discourse approach―focusing on the very knowledge production of “the global.”

    Towards a European identity?: The news media and the case of climate change2010In: European Journal of Communication, ISSN 0267-3231, E-ISSN 1460-3705, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 138-152Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Much research on the discursive construction of Europe in national news media has quantitatively focused on the presence of ‘EU topics’. The more frequently EU topics appear, the better the breeding-ground for a sense of European community, it is argued. This article tackles the question of a European identity from a different angle. Guided by theories on collective identity and power, and utilizing qualitative discourse analysis of the reporting on climate change in a tabloid newspaper and public service television news in Sweden, this article discerns a budding European political identity, discursively embedded and ‘hidden’ in the reporting as the natural order of things. When turned into common-sense knowledge, the European realm as a representative of ‘Us’ is accorded spontaneous legitimacy as a relevant political power in the making of meaning on climate change.

    "We're the ones to blame": Citizens' representations of climate change and the role of the media2011In: Environmental Communication: A Journal of Nature and Culture, ISSN 1752-4032, E-ISSN 1752-4040, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 281-299Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the discussion on how to meet the challenges of climate change the important role of news reporting is often emphasized; the media are considered to have significant influence on citizens' understandings of the issue. However, studies that empirically explore the media's role in shaping these understandings are rather scarce compared with analyses of media content alone. While fully acknowledging the fruitfulness of the study of media material, this article argues that there are tendencies in these studies to, in a somewhat "media-centric" fashion, reduce the complexity of the relationship between media content and audience reception. The article, which reports on findings from a focus-group study containing 53 Swedish citizens, starts from the premise that this relationship must be subjected to empirical analysis rather than axiomatically asserted, and aims to contribute empirically based knowledge on the connection between media staging of climate change and citizens' representations of this global risk.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper suggests some further avenues of empirical and theoretical investigation for media research on climate change. “Old” suggestions, whose significance, as we see it, needs to be further reinforced, are included, as are “new” ones, which we hope will generate innovative research questions. In order to integrate the analysis with knowledge generated by media research at large, we revisit four research challenges that media scholars have long grappled with in the investigation of journalism: (1) the discursive challenge, i.e. the production, content and reception of media discourse; (2) the interdisciplinary challenge, i.e. how media research might engage in productive collaboration with other disciplines; (3) the international challenge, i.e. how to achieve a more diverse and complex understanding of news reporting globally; and (4) the practical challenge, i.e. how to reduce the theory–practice divide in media research.

    The role of the media in the transformation of citizens' social representations of suffering2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modernity changed our social representations of suffering and death, which previous in history were present in everyday life. Today, those phenomena are institutionalised and hospitalised away from people’s homes and social life. The media, however, almost daily serve us intrusive pictures of victims of violence, of human suffering and brutal death. It is the distant suffering of strangers. This paper presents results from studies of citizens’ social representations of distant suffering and discusses two identity positions founded in ideology that arises in relation to the media reporting: national identity and global identity. At a macro level these positions can be related to the contradictory processes of globalisation, on the one hand the ideology of human rights and global compassion and on the other hand nationalism. The result underlines the important role played by the media in the complex processes of transformations of common sense knowledge.

    The enrollment of nature in tourist information: framing urban nature as ‘‘the other’’2013In: Environmental Communication: A Journal of Nature and Culture, ISSN 1752-4032, E-ISSN 1752-4040, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 97-112Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is based on the assumption that nature inevitably plays a role in urban placemaking. Today, cities worldwide are engaged in place promotion in which nature is constructed as a commodity to consume. This article explores the enrollment of nature in tourist information with a specific analytical focus on the relationship between nature and culture. Guided by framing theory and citing the case of tourist information in Stockholm, the article empirically demonstrates how nature is enrolled in tourist information and turned into a commodity through three distinct but related frames that, in various ways, construct nature as ‘‘other’’: nature as the familiar other, nature as the exotic other, and pristine nature. The article concludes that the enrollment of nature in city marketing reproduces the modern nature-culture divide, which enables the commodification of nature and helps conceal the environmental consequences of increased urban density.
