    Digital divides revisited: towards a model for analysis2004Inngår i: Electronic government: Proceedings of the third international conference, EGOV 2004, Zaragoza, Spain, August 30 - September 3, 2004 / [ed] Roland Traunmüller, Berlin: Springer , 2004, s. 289-292Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a model for categories of divides, and how these categories are interrelated. The factors are found by a literature study from different countries attempting to measure various divides. The model is based on earlier research on the ‘divide’ and includes: physical access, autonomy of use, know-how and motivation. Depending on the type of digital divide and the local situation, rectifying efforts must address the most crucial factor, which could be any of the four. The paper also introduces the nature and amount of different proposed divides, and relations among factors.

    Learning to learn in e-Learning: constructive practices for development2010Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns technology use in distance educations and learning practices related to this use. The research was carried out over the period 2005 to 2009 in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and has been reported in 6 published papers. The research is situated within the field of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) and within this field e-learning. Education is important for development and for many students in developing countries distance education is often the only option to get educated. The research question is if the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in distance education can contribute to development, and if so, how?

    This question is explored through two case studies in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. A variety of data collection methods have been used: interviews, questionnaires, participant observations and document review. The research approach is interpretative and findings are analyzed using Structuration Theory.

    Initial findings showed that a major challenge for students was the change of learning practices that distance education required. Findings also showed that new constructive learning practices emerged through the use of ICT. For development to take place the learning practices of students are important. Students used to learning practices based on uncritical memorization of facts will not easily take initiatives for change, whereas students used to constructive learning practices will.  Notwithstanding the fact that most students found this transition challenging, it was found that by introducing technology into long-established transmission structures, changes towards constructive learning practices occurred.

    A major contribution of this thesis is to increase the understanding of how ICT in distance education can facilitate constructive learning practices. By arguing that constructive learning practices are conducive to societal change this finding also has implications for development. The thesis also makes a theoretical contribution by extending Structuration Theory’s applicability in demonstrating its explanatory power in settings where researcher and informants are geographically and socially distant.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a critical review of research on challenges for e-learning with a particular focus on developing countries. A comprehensive literature review including 60 papers on e-learning challenges was undertaken for the purpose of understanding how to implement e-learning in developing countries. Research questions were: what has existing research identified as the major challenges for e-learning, and, what differences, if any, are there between developing countries and developed countries in this respect? The literature study found 278 papers which were condensed to 60 based on exclusion and inclusion criteria designed to find papers of best quality as well as papers that clearly investigated well-defined challenges. The research found 30 specific challenges which were grouped into four categories, viz.: courses, individuals, technology and context. The overall conclusion is that these challenges are equally valid for both developed and developing countries; however in developing countries more papers focus on access to technology and context whereas in developed countries more papers concern individuals. A further finding is that most papers focus on one or two categories of challenges; few papers exhibit a comprehensive view. Because challenges are interrelated, based on the findings we propose a conceptual framework of emerging issues for e-learning in developed and developing countries. The framework is useful to guide both practice and research.

    Abstract [en]

    By using an extensive framework for e-learning enablers and disablers (including 37 factors) this paper sets out to identify which of these challenges are most salient for an e-learning course in Sri Lanka. The study includes 1887 informants and data has been collected from year 2004 to 2007, covering opinions of students and staff. A quantitative approach is taken to identify the most important factors followed by a qualitative analysis to explain why and how they are important. The study identified seven major challenges in the following areas: Student support, Flexibility, Teaching and Learning Activities, Access, Academic confidence, Localization and Attitudes. In this paper these challenges will be discussed and solutions suggested.

    2008 (engelsk)Inngår i: Proceedings of ECEL 2008: 7th European conference on e-Learning, 2008, s. 29-37Konferansepaper, Publicerat paper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports the findings from two case studies on e-learning in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. In these countries much hope is set on e-learning as a means to disseminate education to a larger population, but statistics show that drop out rates from e-learning courses are much higher than from traditional, classroom based, courses. In this paper it is argued that one reason for this is that the introduction of e-learning and a more student-centred learning model involves a drastic shift for students who are brought up in very teacher-centred didactic educational cultures. In order to investigate how this change in learning is perceived by its main stakeholders (i.e. the students) visits to learning centres in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were made during 2007 and 2008. To capture the students’ opinions an open approach was chosen where students were asked to write letters about which major challenges they experience in changing their learning behaviour and completing the courses. Altogether the study is based on 107 student letters that have been analyzed and coded based on major differences and challenges identified by the students. Findings show that most students find learning on their own to be the major difference. They find this challenging because they feel very distant and because they do not know how to learn on their own. They have difficulties in managing their time and a lack of flexibility combined with a sloppy administration makes it even worse. Students used to being spoon-fed and learning by memorizing obviously need much support in taking ownership of their own learning in order to be able to learn by themselves. By comparing and mapping these findings to solutions suggested by existing research this study therefore suggests that support functions should be provided for students on ‘how to be an online learner’ and on ‘how to learn by yourself’. The teacher interaction and presence should also, at least in the early stages of the course, be frequent and active in order to make the student confident in his or hers ability to learn on their own. Finally, course flexibility (in regards to delivery mode and pace) should be high and much effort should be put into creating a supportive and well-organized administration

    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes how distance educations in developing countries can enhance interactivityby means of information and communication technologies. It is argued that e-learning involvesa shift in the educational structure from traditional transmission of knowledge to interactivecreation of knowledge. Our case studies are two distance educations in Bangladesh and SriLanka that use different technologies for implementing interactivity; Internet and computersin one case and video and mobile phones in the other. The findings are analyzed based onStructuration Theory and we compare the two approaches based on emerging norms andbeliefs. Findings from both cases show the concurrent enactment of both the transmissionand the interactive structure. Whereas peer collaboration and the use of self-assessment toolsmake students take more ownership of their learning, we also found the idea of a classroomwith an instructive teacher to be deeply rooted in the students’ minds.

    2010 (engelsk)Inngår i: International Journal on E-learning, ISSN 1537-2456, E-ISSN 1943-5932, Vol. 9, nr 4, s. 435-461Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
    Abstract [en]

    This paper builds on a case study on e-learning in Sri Lanka with focus on students’ underlying beliefs about how one learns. E-learning programs are most often set up with the assumption that students should think, act and learn independently and with underlying values of constructivism and learner–centred learning. For students used to classroom-based, didactic education the transition to the e-learning paradigm is, however, neither predetermined nor immediate. The objective of this paper is to find out if, and how, the e-learning practice manages to transform students into more independent and self sustaining learners. By drawing on Structuration Theory this study analyzes and compares novice and experienced students’ assumptions about learning when asking for a particular support function, because support needs should change if students start adopting the e-learning view on how learning is achieved. Findings show that students increasingly adopt the e-learning view on learning as they progress through the program. Students take increasingly more ownership of their learning and the teacher is no longer seen as the container of all knowledge. The importance of discussions also increases over time indicating that knowledge is no longer seen as being transmitted but rather created.

    Abstract [en]

    This research is situated within the field of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) and asks if ICT use can make learning practices change. While constructive learning practices are critical to both individual and societal development, repetitive learning practices are the norm in many developing countries. The study is based on observations and in-depth interviews and uses a structurational approach to understand if and how students views of learning change during an e-learning program in Sri Lanka. We found four constructive learning practices that emerged through technology use; individual exploring, interaction with peers, interaction with teachers, and taking responsibility of the learning. Many constructive learning practices emerged outside the LMS used, in students’ voluntary uses of publicly available resources on the Internet. The study shows that technology use can play a positive role for development, provided an open environment is available; students learn constructive practicesfrom e-learning.

    “You can't make this a science!”: Analyzing decision support systems in political contexts2012Inngår i: Government Information Quarterly, ISSN 0740-624X, E-ISSN 1872-9517, Vol. 29, nr 4, s. 543-552Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports on problems and conflicts encountered when using decision support systems (DSS) in political contexts. Based on a literature study and two case studies we describe problems encountered in relation not only to the DSS itself, but also to the political decision process. The case studies have been carried out in two cities in Sweden that at different times but in similar situations have used DSS in order to reach a decision in complicated and contested matters. In both cases we have previously found that the method and IT tool used for decision analysis were appreciated by most participants, but the inherent rationality of the DSS was in conflict with how participants usually make decisions as well as with the political process. The assumption was that a strict and open method would make grounds for clear decisions, but the results of the decision process were none of the cases implemented. In one case the result of the decision analysis was that no clear decision was made. In the other case the lowest ranked alternative was implemented. Furthermore, in neither city the method was ever used again. We therefore ask: What are the challenges and limitations to using DSS in political contexts? Our study shows that challenges relate to selecting and using criteria; eliciting weights for criteria (high level of subjectivity); understanding all the amount of facts available in the system; time constraints; and lack of impact on the final decision. This study contributes to both research and practice by increasing the understanding of what challenges are experienced in DSS use, since the findings can be used as a framework of challenges that should be addressed, in design of systems as well as method for use. The study also contributes to understanding the role of politicians in decision-making and the consequences for the use of DSS. Further, the literature study showed that there are overall very few studies on the actual use of DSS in a political context, and we therefore conclude by encouraging more studies reporting actual use.

Today we have the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) to guide us, but they have been largely criticized just like their predecessors.  The  debate  in  Information  and  Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) mainly concerns to which extent Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) may contribute to the SDGs. This editorial offers a historic overview of the different development goals that the UN has offered and eight papers that offer a view into the discussion of the challenges facing the SDGs, but also examples of experimental strategies on how ICTs can be used in realizing, or undermining, these goals.

    Victim, mother, or untapped resource? Discourse analysis of the construction of women in ICT policies2017Inngår i: Information Technologies and International Development, ISSN 1544-7529, E-ISSN 1544-7537, Vol. 13, s. 72-86Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article analyzes the construction of women in national ICT policies in South and Southeast Asia. The aim is to unravel the role ascribed to women in these policies and how this affects suggested measures. The research is based on critical discourse analysis and shows that women are mainly constructed as victims, mothers, or an untapped resource. We argue that if women are specifically targeted in policies, careful attention should be given to how they are portrayed. Our analysis also shows that in most cases the suggested solutions on how to include women in the ICT society only deal with the symptoms of gender inequality rather than the structures that prevent equal opportunities. We conclude by discussing implications for research and practice.

    Citizen Diversity in e-Government Research: Moving the Field Forward2021Inngår i: Proceedings of the 54th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences / [ed] Tung X. Bui, University of Hawai'i at Manoa , 2021, s. 4828-4837Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Whereas broad launch of public e-services ensures equal and homogenous treatment of citizens, citizen diversity is often set aside. By means of a literature study we describe how research has addressed diversity in the field of eGovernment. we analyzed the papers according to the following codes: group; application domain; unit of analysis; and technology in use or design. Results showed that the most common application domain was e-services with access and use as the most common units of analysis. The most frequently researched groups are based on classical socio-demographic variables such as economy, education and age. Also, the majority of papers discussed services in use. We conclude by suggesting that future research focuses underrepresented user groups; adds further granularity to the classical sociodemographic variables; identifies groups within groups; targets policies and policy implementation; and changes focus from use to development. We also call for conceptual clarity of the concept ‘diversity’.

    Terminologi och begrepp inom informationssäkerhet: Hur man skapar en språkgemenskap2016Rapport (Annet (populærvitenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med den här studien är att utvärdera svensk terminologi på informationssäkerhetsområdet med fokus på frågor om målgrupper och grundläggande termer. Baserat på en Delphi-studie, där experter från olika yrkeskategorier har fått definiera en uppsättning grundläggande begrepp, har vi utvärderat både experternas definitioner och processen med att ta fram definitionerna. Vi har identifierat flera problem med svensk terminologi på informationssäkerhetsområdet. För att stödja arbetet med att utveckla svensk terminologi för informationssäkerhet beskriver vi i rapporten förslag på hur arbetet kan bedrivas vidare. De problem vi har identifierat är bl.a. att begrepp som inte finns med i rådande styrdokument blir otydliga och svårtolkade för experter inom området och att det är problematiskt med två olika styrdokument (HB550 och SIS-TR50:2015) i användning med delvis olika definitioner av samma begrepp. Vi har även sett att olika yrkeskategorier ofta definierar begreppen utifrån sin specifika profession, vilket kan innebära att det finns ett behov av att säkerhetsbegrepp kontextualiseras utifrån yrkesroller. Processen med att arbeta med experter enligt Delphi-metoden gav ett bra underlag för att analysera och diskutera olika definitioner av centrala begrepp inom informationssäkerhetsområdet. Dessutom har experterna varit mycket engagerade i processen. Vi föreslår att framtida begreppsutredningar använder sig av denna metod eller varianter av den och att det är experterna, de som i sitt dagliga yrke handhar informationssäkerheten, som ska vara de som skapar definitionerna. Vi ser också ett stort behov av större, effektivare och mer samordnade former för framtida begreppsutredningar.

    Abstract [en]

    In a digitalized society our work environment is highly integrated with our home environment making work boundless both in terms of time and space. The digital work environment risks increased stress. Based on a case study in Swedish schools we investigate how teachers experience the use of social media for work-related purposes. We do so by using the Technology Affordance and Constraints Theory to capture the affordances as well as constraints of this use. Findings show that affordances of social media in schools were increased opportunities for learning, transparency and community building. Constraints were distractions from learning, increased isolation, stress and, above all, lack of guidance in how and when to use social media. We end the paper arguing that lack of policies and guidelines governing the use of social media at work is risking an increase in boundary blurring and potentially more stress.

    Consensus versus warfare – unveiling discourses in de jure information security standard development2020Inngår i: Computers & security (Print), ISSN 0167-4048, E-ISSN 1872-6208, Vol. 99, artikkel-id 102035Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Information security standards are influential tools in society today. The validity claim of standards is based on what is considered “best practice.” We unveil the negotiations that take place when “best practice” is constructed during standard development. By using dis- course analysis, we investigate how power operates in national and international contexts of de jure information security standard development work. As members of a standard- ization committee, we analyzed the language used by this committee. The results showed two discourses at play: the consensus discourse and the warfare discourse. We conclude by proposing six theoretical propositions on how power operates in the above-mentioned contexts of de jure standard development.

    Emerging Collaborative and Cooperative Practices in 1:1 Schools2016Inngår i: Technology, Pedagogy and Education, ISSN 1475-939X, E-ISSN 1747-5139, Vol. 25, nr 4, s. 413-430Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the authors explored how laptops used in 1:1 classrooms affect cooperation and collaboration practices. Based on an observational time study, the authors found that the most common activity in 1:1 classrooms is group work using the computer. They also found that, despite what the concept 1:1 alludes to about one student working with one computer, most laptop use takes on other forms such as two students working with one computer (1:2) or two students working together using two laptops (2:2). The findings reported in this article about the various different collaboration arrangements have implications for both research and practice. For practice, because teachers can arrange activities based on an awareness of the different student–laptop constellations that emerge when students are given a laptop. Research is likewise informed about the various group work constellations and can build on this knowledge for further analysis of the pros and cons with the different collaborative forms.

    Striden om det svenska snuset: En studie av identitetskonstruktioner i den svenska rapporteringen om EU:s tobaksdirektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines constructions of identities in Swedish news paper articles concerning the European Unions’s Tobacco Products Directive. Using critical discourse analysis (CDA) supported by theories of discourse, semiotics and identity formation, this paper argues that constructions of a Swedish ”Us” are distinguished from a non-Swedish ”Them”. These constructions depends on categories such as use of tobacco, science, history and war, which are frequently used in the discourse to separate ”Us”, ”the good” from ”Them”, ”the bad”. By doing so, these constructions support interests of, for example, the Swedish tobacco industry, while disadvantaging others. The results demonstrate five different identity positions inherented in the construction of ”Us” and ”Them”.

    Nature, nationalism and neoliberalism on food packaging: The case of Sweden2020Inngår i: Discourse, Context & Media, ISSN 2211-6958, E-ISSN 2211-6966, Vol. 34, artikkel-id 100329Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have shown that representations of nature are common on food packaging, often to sell products that are far from natural. They have also shown that brands can add value to products using nationalist messages. However, much less research has gone into how these representations take form in specific national settings. In this article, using multimodal critical discourse analysis, I investigate a sample of Swedish food packaging, and show how the nature represented evokes associations established systematically by governments building up nationalist imagery associated with social democracy, openness, freedom, responsibility, equality and fairness. I argue that at a time when Sweden is moving to the right politically, becoming a model neoliberal society, such representations, used for marketing purposes, help communicate a banal sense that Sweden is very much as it always has been.

    Recontextualizing Swedish nationalism for commercial purposes: a multimodal analysis of a milk marketing event2019Inngår i: Critical Discourse Studies, ISSN 1740-5904, E-ISSN 1740-5912, Vol. 16, nr 5, s. 583-603Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, I carry out an analysis of an event in Sweden called 'the spring turnout'. It is a traditional event where cows are allowed out into the fields after the winter. I show how it has been colonized by Arla Foods, the diary company which controls part of the milk production in Sweden and in many other countries. Of interest in this analysis is how Arla infuses the event, and its own marketing, with discourses about nature that are specifically Swedish and can be traced to the nation building of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, used systematically as part of the social democratic project for equality and progress through a strong welfare system. The paper examines how Arla recontextualizes these discourses for commercial purposes. I show how such recontextualized discourses carry reassurances to Swedish people that this project is still intact despite huge social political changes in Swede over the past decades embracing neoliberalism, global capitalism and becoming one of the fastest deregulating countries in the world.

    “THE PATH TO A LONG-TERM HEALTHY LIVING” – A MULTIMODAL CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS OF THE SELF-CARE APP LIFESUM2021Inngår i: Digitalizing Social Practices: Changes and Consequences. SDU, Odense on 23-24 February 2021: Book of abstracts, 2021, s. 14-14Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    At a time when everyone is expected to take responsibility for but also optimize health (Petersen and Lupton, 1996) and pursue a ‘healthy living’ (Petersen et al., 2010), apps, 'self-tracking' and ‘everyday analytics’ become crucial. In this paper I examine the design of a self-care application, Lifesum, in relation to its socio-political context. More specifically, the purpose of the paper is to show how the design of the app not only shapes how practices that affect health, such as healthy eating, exercise and social engagement, are represented and communicated, but how the design itself reproduces and encourages certain ideas, values and actions that are highly valued in contemporary society. Previous research shows that apps and self-tracking devices contribute to self-monitoring and self-advocacy (Sanders, 2017; Doshi, 2018) and enable self-government and self-care (Whitson, 2015). However, not many studies critically examine the practices, ideas and values that the design of these apps promotes or facilitates.

    The data consists of data from the Lifesum app. The study draws on the principles of multimodal critical discourse analysis (MCDA) (Machin and Mayr, 2012) using a discourse-design approach (Ledin and Machin, 2016). More particularly, I explore how practices that affect health are represented through writings, quantifications, spatialization, graphic shapes and icons, temporality and causality. I discuss how the design serves certain purposes and how it interacts with the user and encourages certain choices. The analysis shows that a sustainable "healthy life", as represented by the Lifesum app, should be understood in relation to values such as choice, individual freedom, personal responsibility, agency and consumer loyalty. Design is central to the process of shaping the user into a "good" and "healthy" citizen.

    This is us! – Nationalist discourses in the marketing and packaging of Swedish dairy2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I examine the marketing practices of a Swedish dairy company in relation to banal nationalism (Billig, 1995). In the center of the discussion is the marketing discourse and its colonization and appropriation of the ‘Swedish landscape’. More specific, the purpose of the investigation is to understand how a nationalist discourse is realized through a company’s semiotic activities in relation to emplacement. Previous research has shown that nationalist company advertising is common within the branding of food products since employing nationalist appeals is one way to create differentiation. Research has also shown that the promotion of food is closely connected to place and identity. Nations and their symbols are used in marketing to link a brand to a national identity, and by that re-imagining, representing andreproducing the nation. (Ichijo and Ranta, 2016, Prideaux, 2009, Kania-Lundholm, 2014). The data consists of material from two of the company’s marketing activities: advertisementsplaced on train tables and food packages used at an annual festival arranged by local Swedish Arla farms. The study draws on principles of Multimodal Critical Discourse Analysis (Machin and Mayr, 2012) and principles of geosemiotics (Scollon and Scollon, 2003). More particularly, I explore how a nationalist discourse is realized through choice of design, texts and images used in signs and on food packages, and how the materializations in relation to emplacement enable a commercial colonization and appropriation of the ‘Swedish landscape’. The analysis shows that the company through its semiotic activities is able to legitimate and naturalize nationalistic values and ideas associated with the brand. Overall, the analysis will show how the marketing discourse colonize and appropriate a geographical entity as well as the national myth connected to it in a way that puts nationalism in the service of capitalism.

    The masculinization of domestic cooking: a historical study of Swedish cookbooks for men2022Inngår i: Norma, ISSN 1890-2138, E-ISSN 1890-2146, Vol. 17, nr 4, s. 252-269Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyzes how men's domestic cooking is represented and masculinized in cookbooks, written by men for men and published in 1975, 1992, and 2010, respectively. Departing from the concept of domestic masculinities, it uses the methods of Multimodal Critical Discourse Analysis. It asks: what kind of values and ideas connected to men, food, and the home are realized in texts and images? And how are these legitimized and naturalized? As the study's context is Sweden, a country known for its pursuit of gender equality, the study focuses on how men's domestic cooking has been represented in cookbooks published roughly 20 years apart. The analysis shows that, while the first two books are characterized by a 'real man' discourse and working-class masculinity, the 2010 book represents a masculinity in line with a 'new man image' closely linked to consumption and materiality. However, structurally, there are few differences. Values associated with traditional middle-class masculinities, traditional gender norms, and gendered division of domestic labor are reproduced. Men's cooking is recontextualized as a playful leisure activity. In all three books, cooking becomes another way for a man to appear successful - both in relation to other men and women, and in socioeconomic terms.

    Flags and fields: a comparative analysis of national identity in butter packaging in Sweden and the UK2023Inngår i: Social Semiotics, ISSN 1035-0330, E-ISSN 1470-1219, Vol. 33, nr 4, s. 861-882Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Researchers have shown that it is common to use nationalist appeals when marketing food products. Research has also shown that geographical places play an important role in creating feelings of national identity and national belonging. To a much lesser extent, research has shown how these “places” are represented and reproduced in the packaging of food products in specific national environments and to an even lesser extent, compared these representations and reproductions. In this article, using multimodal critical discourse analysis, we examine how butter packaging in Sweden and the UK represents nature in ways that create associations that are linked to the national identity that exists in each country. We argue that commercial interests, through their choice of packaging design, not only exploit cultural and political ideas and values but also reinforce them by connecting to prevailing national sentiments. In times of political and social change, this can be used to strengthen national affiliation and thus ally with political interests.

    Alternativ television: former av kritik i konstnärlig TV-produktion2012Doktoravhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation analyses social critique, communication critique and aestheticalcritique in television produced by artists. Theoretically it draws on researchon alternative media, TV studies, especially genre analysis and narratology,and media aesthetics. It conducts a text-production study of three examplesof alternative television from the period 2004-2008: ContemporaryArt Center TV (CAC TV): A show produced by the CAC in Vilnius, Lithuaniaand aired on a commercial TV-channel; Good TV who aired video art ona local public access channel in Stockholm, Sweden; and Candyland TV, apirate transmission from an art gallery in central Stockholm.Empirically it builds on TV-texts, web sites and documents, as well asinterviews with participants. Through a study of form and stylistics, relationto conventional genres and modes of narration, it engages in a discussionabout the features of a critical, alternative media text.The study shows how these televisions work in a tradition of alternativetelevision and connects them to tactics and aesthetical forms as found inhistorical examples, but also how this type of formalist media critiquemight inform an understanding of alternative media. From the analysis ofrelations between social and formalist aspects of alternative television, adistinction between alternative as ”alternative worldview” and as ”alternativeexpressions” is suggested, a distinction that contributes to the developmentof theory in the study of alternative media.

    Katastrofal rapportering: En kritisk diskursanalys av svenska dagstidningars rapportering om jordbävningen i Haiti respektive översvämningen i Pakistan 20102011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with the distinct difference in media attention the earthquake-disaster in Haiti and the flood-disaster in Pakistan got in 2010. There may be many reasons to this divergence, but this study focuses on how news articles can create compassion.

       This study, with its critical perspective, examines how two daily papers in Sweden portray the suffering of the victims of the catastrophes in Haiti and Pakistan, and create compassion for them. Furthermore it asks the question who benefits from the newspaper’s description of human suffering in the third world.

       The result shows that the manner of which Swedish daily newspapers report from the catastrophe in Haiti creates an emotional involvement, which most likely leads to compassion. Furthermore it shows potential to lead the readers to identify with the suffering people in Haiti.

       The Swedish daily newspapers report of the catastrophe in Pakistan on the other hand, does not involve the reader on an emotional level, but gives them the role of a spectator. However the result also indicates that the distance between the victim and the reader is reducing. In that remark the report have potential to create compassion for the victims in Pakistan, although it is more likely that this does not occur.

       In conclusion the study shows that the Swedish daily newspapers report of the catastrophes in Haiti and Pakistan is embedded in an ideology, which reproduces a global hierarchy of suffering by reproducing the construction of an Us and Them. In addition this study reveals a social conception of the West as more worthy compassion than the third world, and therefore the Swedish daily newspapers report of the catastrophes reproduces the West’s dominance and power in the society.

    Abstract [en]

    This qualitative study examines how four Swedish sports organizations understands strategic communication. It also examines how the sport organizations creates media content and if they are trying to take over the process from the traditional news media. The study uses qualitative interviews as a method and the theories of strategic communication and sport marketing. The results show that the sports organizations are more or less strategic in their work when it comes to communication plans and their social media channels. The results of the study also show that the sports organizations are keen to take control over media content and through that, their need of the traditional news media is in decline. Finally, the loyalty of the supporters is essential for the sports organizations and they try to build it through interaction via their social media channels.

    Activism online: A qualitative study of the social media strategies at UNA Sweden2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    Social media has in a short period of time become an increasingly big part of peoples’ everyday life. For organisations and companies, it is practically essential today to be active online to be able to survive. Social media offers cheap and effective advantages compared to traditional marketing, but also increasing challenges in finding strategies and content that works in the changing opportunities of the platforms.

    This study has researched the social media strategies at the Swedish non-governmental organisation UNA Sweden, through interviews and observation studies at the organisation’s communication department in Stockholm. The result shows that social media is a necessary and important tool for the organisation’s communicational work, but the presuppositions for communicating online has changed since when social media was first launched. Despite both benefits and challenges with social media, the world of today seems to be too dependent and used to social media for the organisation not to incorporate it in their daily work and communication.

    Facebook is the social medium that is mainly used today, although there is not much research yet about how it affects the social life. However there is a lot of research about Internet use in relation to the social life. This study aims on the basis of a qualitative interview study of a few Facebook users to discuss two contradictory theories in the previous research about Internet’s influence on social life, that says that Internet either leads to social isolation from the real life or that it can be seen as a supplement to communication in the real life. To see which of the two theories that are most relevant for today’s social medium Facebook.

    Den ursprungliga frågeställningen ämnade att granska hur Refn på ett teknisktestetiskt sätt skildrar drömska aspekter, vilket i sin tur skulle tydligöra hur en drömsk stämning kan skapas med filmform. Tillvägagångssättet att granska filmerna ur ett formalistiskt perspektiv har bidragit till att lättare få en förståelse över hur de olika filmiska metoderna har används för att skapa en förhöjd och drömlik verklighet.  Jag har i analyserna av Refns filmer lyft fram hur han skildrar drömska fenomen på diverse sätt, som är grundat utifrån de olika vanliga drömfenomenen som togs upp i teoridelen. De olika estetiska metoderna har sedan jämförts under diskussionen för att ytterligare svara på de frågor jag tog upp i syftet. Resultatet utifrån analyserna och diskussionen visar på att Refns främsta tillvägagångssätt för att skapa en förhöjd verklighet är genom att förstärka karaktärernas känslospår. Han gör detta genom att låta estetiska aspekter som bland annat bild, rörelser, klippning, ljus och musik reflektera samt förhöja karaktärernas sinnesbilder. Det är i sin tur denna visuella och auditiva känsloladdning som ofta skapar den drömlika stämningen. Drömska tidsförskjutningar kan alltså skapas genom användandet av olika filmiska metoder. Här använder Refn främst upplösningsbilder vilket redan var något surrealisterna på 20-talet ansåg var drömlika. Refn använder upplösningar oftast för att låta det känslomässiga spåret leda berättelserna. Då Refn undviker traditionella konventioner för att förmedla filmernas berättelser som dialog och narrativstruktur, så driver istället karaktärernas känslor berättelserna vidare genom outsagda tidshopp. Det här sker även i hur karaktärerna förhåller sig i deras miljöer då miljöerna ofta sveper in och ut ur varandra. När han inte utför detta med upplösningar så intar musiken istället samma roll för att föra känslor från en scen till en annan. Avsaknaden av förklaringar för karaktärernas handlingar, eller vad de planerar att göra, bidrar även till det känslosamma spåret. Detta bidrar även till den oförutsägbara stämningen av drömmar. Känslor blir även betonade och förhöjda av användandet av ljus och slow motion. Man får i Refns filmer observera karaktärerna i deras drömska verkligheter, likt hur Eberwein menar på att man som åskådare bevittnar den filmiska drömmen, att man ser drömmaren i sin dröm (Eberwein, 1980, s. 201). Genom att ha specificerat vad som kan känneteckna en drömsk stämning utifrån drömforskning och tidigare studier om drömska filmmetoder, så visar granskningarna av Refns filmer på hur dessa metoder kan samspela för att filmiskt skapa en drömsk verklighet. Detta har resulterat i en utökad förståelse av Refns förhållningssätt till tekniskestetiska metoder utifrån hur han skapar sina förhöjda verkligheter. Ytterligare ger denna sammansatta förståelse över de olika filmiska metoderna en insikt till hur filmform kan användas för att skildra drömska aspekter på film.

    “Are you NOCCO enough?” -En kvalitativ fokusgruppstudie om deltagande i NOCCOs brand community på Instagram2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    With the rise of the Internet and the emergence of social media, conditions of communication

    for both companies and the public have changed. Today, the audience is a co-creator of

    content and is an active participant, and through platforms such as Instagram, there is now a

    space where the audience and companies meet. It has developed new features and changed

    the structure of a so called brand community , which is about how people gather around a

    shared interest of a brand. Based on this, we intend to investigate how the company

    NOCCO's communicative activities on Instagram involve consumers and what motivates

    them to participate. The study will answer the research questions through three focus group

    interviews with 3-4 informants in each group as well as a brief analysis of NOCCO's

    Instagram. We identified six themes of participating in our analysis: social aspect, personal

    gain, awareness and influence, information, identification and trust.

    Syfte

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka hur kommunala chefer kommunicerar med medarbetarna samt styr och leder dessa med kommunikation.

    Detta analyseras utifrån följande frågor:

    1. Hur kommuniceras kommunens mål, visioner och värden ut till medarbetarna?

    2. Hur kommunicerar chefer med sina medarbetare och hur upplevs internkommunikationen?

    3. Motsvarar chefernas bild av den interna kommunikationen medarbetarnas?

    Metod

    Kvalitativ intervju används där 10 anställda vid Sandvikens kommun intervjuas: 4 chefer respektive 6 medarbetare.

    Teori

    Teorier inom området organisationskommunikation tas upp där fokus ligger på intern-kommunikation. Däribland behandlas teorier om ledarkommunikation och olika kanaler för kommunikationen.

    Huvudresultat

    Kommunens mål, visioner och värden kommuniceras framför allt ut på avdelningarnas möten. Cheferna och medarbetarna upplever att detta fungerar relativt bra även om dessa frågor ofta upplevs som svåra. Man anser att cheferna har en viktig uppgift i att kommunicera vad som händer på chefsmötena. På avdelningarna finns både formella och informella kanaler. Möten sker regelbundet och en stor betoning på dialog finns. Intranätet och FirstClass används i stor utsträckning, särskilt på avdelning 1. På avdelning 2 sker kommunikationen främst genom just dialog. Internkommunikationen upplevs som väldigt bra på de båda avdelningarna. Gemensamt för de båda avdelningarna är att de genomsyras av en stor öppenhet, delaktighet och närhet där tillgängligheten är stor. Genom intervjuerna framkommer att chefernas bild av kommunikationen i huvudsak motsvarar medarbetarnas.

    A Framework of Statistical and Visualization Techniques for Missing Data Analysis in Software Cost Estimation2018Inngår i: Computer Systems and Software Engineering: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications / [ed] Mehdi Khosrow-Pour, IGI Global, 2018, s. 433-460Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Software Cost Estimation (SCE) is a critical phase in software development projects. However, due to the growing complexity of the software itself, a common problem in building software cost models is that the available datasets contain lots of missing categorical data. The purpose of this chapter is to show how a framework of statistical, computational, and visualization techniques can be used to evaluate and compare the effect of missing data techniques on the accuracy of cost estimation models. Hence, the authors use five missing data techniques: Multinomial Logistic Regression, Listwise Deletion, Mean Imputation, Expectation Maximization, and Regression Imputation. The evaluation and the comparisons are conducted using Regression Error Characteristic curves, which provide visual comparison of different prediction models, and Regression Error Operating Curves, which examine predictive power of models with respect to under- or over-estimation.

    Abstract [en]

    Software Cost Estimation is a critical phase in the development of a software project, and over the years has become an emerging research area. A common problem in building software cost models is that the available datasets contain projects with lots of missing categorical data. The purpose of this chapter is to show how a combination of modern statistical and computational techniques can be used to compare the effect of missing data techniques on the accuracy of cost estimation. Specifically, a recently proposed missing data technique, the multinomial logistic regression, is evaluated and compared with four older methods: listwise deletion, mean imputation, expectation maximization and regression imputation with respect to their effect on the prediction accuracy of a least squares regression cost model. The evaluation is based on various expressions of the prediction error and the comparisons are conducted using statistical tests, resampling techniques and a visualization tool, the regression error characteristic curves.

    Eko(logiskt)?: – En multimodal kritisk diskursanalys av ICAs ekologiska livsmedelsförpackningar.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to study how ICA construct ecologically through their organic food packaging. Multimodal Critical Discourse Analysis (MCDA) is used to analyze the semiotic resources existing on food packaging, as well as identify underlying power and ideological conditions. As our analysis is based on our own interpretations, and that multimodal critical discourse analysis is a social constructionist theory, our study includes social constructionism. One conclusion of our study is that all organic products, whether design, convey some kind of discourse about purity, and that it can be expressed in different ways. ICA show this through a white and modern design which is a new thinking when it comes to organic food packaging. There is no traditional, authentic or Swedish about the products like the other organic products in the study.

    Artefacts produced via design methods as boundary objects and mediating processes among non-designer engineers in idea generation2012Inngår i: International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD) and Knowledge Cities World Summit (KCWS) 2012 : Proceedings / [ed] Schiuma, G.; Spender, J.C.; Yigitcanlar, T., Institute of Knowledge Asset Management (IKAM) , 2012, s. 726-736Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose of the paper - This paper introduces design methods as a mediating process and the produced artefact as a boundary object between different stakeholders in the management of idea generation among non-designers. This paper is multi-disciplinary, based on studies in innovation management, knowledge management and utilization of design processes in industrial management. The concepts of the boundary object and the mediating process as understood in activity theory are introduced in the conceptual part of the paper (Vygotsky, 1978). This paper seeks the answer to the explorative qualitative research question: What kinds of advantages were found when using design methods (in art-based interventions) in idea generation among non-designer engineers? At the end of the paper, some results are revealed along with an analysis of the results.

    The research design and method is a qualitative approach in order to explore the usability of collaboratively made artefacts as boundary objects in idea generation situations. Furthermore, it was recognized during our study that the design methods used functioned as mediating processes between the stakeholders involved in the workshops. The data has been collected from workshop observations and survey questionnaires among the attendees. The research was conducted between 2009-2012 among non-designer engineers from industry (Aramo-Immonen and Toikka, 2009; 2010).

    Originality and value of research - This methodology provides evidence that design workshops, which can be categorized as art-based interventions on a continuum of art-based initiatives (ABIs by Schiuma, 2011, p. 48), function as mediating processes and the artefacts created act as boundary objects in idea generation in the scope of innovation management.

    Practical implications - The outcomes of this research can be utilized as guidelines in designing idea generation sessions in industrial management among non-designer engineers.
