    Digital humaniora, datorisering och litteraturvetenskap i en digitaliserad värld2022In: Tidskrift för litteraturvetenskap, ISSN 1104-0556, E-ISSN 2001-094X, Vol. 51, no 3-4Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    De senaste decennierna har ”digital humaniora” nämnts i otaliga sammanhang och kommit att påverka litteraturvetenskaplig utbildning och forskning – trots att begreppets innebörd alltjämt är omdebatterad. Är det en ny disciplin eller specialisering av forskning och undervisning som redan bedrivs? På vilka sätt hänger digital humaniora ihop med samhällets och universitetens datorisering? Är det ett svar på hur litteraturen kan förstås i en digitaliserad värld, eller en fingervisning om litteraturvetenskapens framtid? För att reda i begreppen bjöd TFL-redaktionen in till ett panelsamtal via videolänk, av och med Karl Berglund (Uppsala universitet), Oscar Jansson (Lunds universitet) och Lina Rahm (KTH).

    The Social Shaping of European Digital Radio2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines the social shaping of digital radio in Europe and provides new insights about the main competing technologies and the discourses built around their capabilities.

    The radio frequency spectrum is a limited resource and in order to be used in the most efficient way different organizations have been researching optimizing standards since the mid-1980s. The Eureka-147 project produced the first European digital broadcasting standard DAB whose development have been initially fostered by public service broadcasters and electronics manufacturers, consequently by commercial broadcasters and governmental institutions.

    The design and policy of DAB did not manage to grasp the attention and support of all the actors present in the nascent digital radio industry. A decade after its launch DAB was followed by other digital radio standards, as DAB+ and DRM, in the role of complements/competitors. At the same time the Internet started to be used as infrastructure for delivering radio or sound entertainment content.

    Thirty years after the beginning of the European digital radio experience, the picture is still complex and no technology achieved a complete and harmonized implementation. Across Europe, countries have been involved in the digitalization of radio to different extent: Norway announced FM transmissions shutdown in 2017, UK and Switzerland have developed an almost nationally wide digital network coverage and are about to run their switchover plans, some other countries as Sweden and Italy are still in a transmission-trial and evaluation phase.

    The history of digital radio in Europe offers ground for a Social Shaping of Technology analysis as exposed in “The Social construction of technological systems” (1987) by Wiebe Bijker, Thomas Hughes and Trevor Pinch. The Social Shaping of Technology claims that technologies and their outcomes are always socially negotiated. According to this theoretical framework and in particular to the Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) methodology, it is possible to highlight a number of social groups negotiating the final technology in the development of every artefact. In particular SCOT allows to find points of interpretative flexibility, namely diverging interpretations that different groups have of a same technology or a particular feature of it. These arguments or discourses are built around a technology or its features in order to foster a particular concerns of the corresponding group.

    This master thesis analyses the development of digital radio in Europe according to the framework provided by the Social Shaping of Technology, enriching the number of case studies that have been conducted following this framework. In this way the dissertation “The Social Shaping of European Digital Radio” provides an overview on the social, political and economic forces which negotiated the technology throughout its development and provides a deeper understanding of the overall digital media technology industry.

    From Vision to Transition: Exploring the Potential for Public Information Services to Facilitate Sustainable Urban Transport2014Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Policy initiatives to promote sustainable travel through the use of Internet based public information systems have increased during the last decade. Stockholm, in being one of the first cities in Europe to implement an Internet based service for facilitating sustainable travel is believed to be a good candidate for an analysis of key issues for developing sustainable travel planning services to the public.

    Aim: This thesis investigates the past development of two Stockholm based public information systems and their services in order to draw lessons on how to better provide for a public information service geared towards facilitating  environmentally sustainable travel planning through information and communications technology. The overall goal of the thesis is to contribute to an understanding on how to better design and manage current and future attempts at facilitating sustainable travel planning services based on historical case studies.

    Approach: The thesis draws ideas from the concept of organizational responsiveness – an organization’s ability to listen, understand and respond to demands put to it by its internal and external stakeholders – in order to depict how well or not the two public information systems and their owners have adapted to established norms and values of their surroundings.

    Results: Overall, the findings from the historical case studies suggest that organizations attempting to provide sustainable travel planning to the public need to design and manage their systems in such a way that it responds to shifting demands on how to provide for information. Implementing and embedding new technologies involves complex processes of change both at the micro level – for users and practitioners of the service – and at the meso level for the involved public service organizations themselves. This condition requires a contextualist framework to analyze and understand organizational, contextual and cultural issues involved in the adoption of new technologies and procedures.

    Conclusions: The thesis concludes with a discussion on how the findings from the historical case studies may provide lessons for both current and future attempts at providing public information systems geared towards facilitating environmentally sustainable travel planning to the public. Historical examples and issues concerning collective intelligence and peer to peer based forms of designing, producing and supervising public information services identified throughout the study are looked upon and discussed in terms of their possible role in increasing the potential for public information services to facilitate sustainable urban transport.

    Self-Affirmation of Narcissists on Social Media: A Study Proposing a New Method of Categorization on Facebook Ads2018In: Back to the Future: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Springer Nature , 2018, p. 93-101Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the possibility of creating a new category of Facebook ads based on the personality of the user. The introduction of social media channels such as Facebook has provided a new platform for performing self-affirmation theory tests and related behavioral studies. This paper is based on the subsidiary hypothesis that while self-affirming themselves, Facebook users disclose information about their personality. A lexical analysis of each user’s Facebook posts can therefore be used for the purpose of profiling the user. The analysis and categorization of users’ posts based on their behavioral and personality traits can potentially assist marketers interested in targeted marketing to reach a specific audience through this powerful online channel. Hence, this study proposes an innovative method that measures narcissistic personality by analyzing a user’s Facebook posts.

    Content Curatorship and Collaborative Filtering:: A Symbolic Interactionist Approach2018In: Back to the Future:: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Springer Nature , 2018, p. 705-715Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the premise whether sophisticated algorithms that drive curatorship of content for consumers consider a symbolic interactionist perspective on consumer desire for content and whether content offerings, personalisation and the consequent shaping of curatorship algorithms can be based on such an understanding. Curatorship of online content, whether this be product or information based, drives value, consumer engagement and profitability. Curatorship and recommender systems also deliver a personalised experience of the product or services. A review of the reasoning behind such systems reveals that most follow an empirical perspective, namely, the use of statistical tools and information systems algorithms on a behavioural dataset. A theoretically driven approach appears to be lacking. This paper seeks a theoretical approach to online content curatorship embedded in symbolic interactionism. In addition, it seeks to tease out the approach to one that embraces both notions of content curation based on similarity but also on a desire for difference and change. The paper looks at symbolic interactionism in the context of social and individual selves, its role in collaborative filtering, advances a set of propositions for a curation and collaborative filtering model and ends with the possible implications for marketing.

    Global Climate Talks from Failure to Cooperation and Hope: Swedish News Framings of COP15 and COP212017In: Environmental Communication: A Journal of Nature and Culture, ISSN 1752-4032, E-ISSN 1752-4040, Vol. 11, no 5, p. 682-699Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to offer an analysis of how two UN Conferences of Parties, COP15 in Copenhagen 2009 and COP21 in Paris 2015, were covered and debated in Swedish newspapers. Two national and two regional newspapers were selected for the study, and a qualitative frame analysis was conducted on 309 articles. A typology of frames applicable to science-related policy and climate change debates was used and its relevance for global climate summit context was discussed. Having territory in the Arctic region, indigenous populations affected by climate change measures, and political and public sensitivity to environmental issues, the climate debate has particular significance in the Swedish case. Findings indicate a trust in the role of national and supra-national governance to address climate change problems, but also that newspapers in Sweden maintained a focus on the global aspects of the two meetings, rather than framing them as surrogate battlefields for domestic politics.

    If You Cannot Break Ice on an Icebreaker, What Are the Chances in a Policy Debate?2017Other (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On July 29th 2017, Finnish icebreaker MSV Nordica made ‘history’ by completing the earliest seasonal transit through the Northwest Passage in only 24 days. Newspapers around the world reported on the event by publishing stories on the melting ice and curiosities of life onboard. What these articles did not convey is how this transit was also an attempt to provide a different platform to talk about the future of the “New Arctic”.

    Abstract [en]

    The article discusses fashion advertising as a means to access and understand contemporary social imaginary significations of the body politic, focusing on an advertising for Louis Vuitton. The article suggest that one can read advertising as a form of continuous, running commentary that society makes of itself, and through which one can unearth the social imaginary. The article finds a plethora of meanings in the selected advertising for Louis Vuitton, but the central finding is that the fashion advertising represents community as an absence of community; in other words as a deficit that the brand somehow is able to rectify.

    “För ingen älskar budbäraren som kommer med dåliga nyheter”2024In: Dala-Demokraten, ISSN 1103-9183, no 11 januariArticle in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    “För ingen älskar budbäraren som kommer med dåliga nyheter” 

    Denna versrad kommer från Sofokles tragedi Antigone, uttalad av en budbärare. Men kanske borde man säga budbäraren, för i antik grekisk teater är budbäraren ofta en central figur som har en viktig roll att spela i den dramatiska handlingen. Det är ofta en underordnad person, som en väktare eller en herde, vars uppgift är att ge en fullständig och sanningsenlig redogörelse för vad som har hänt utanför scenen. I Sofokles Antigone beskriver budbäraren hur någon har brutit mot Kreons, Thebes härskare, förbud att begrava Polyneikes, Oidipus son och Antigones syster. I dramat gör de ”dåliga nyheterna” Kreon rasande och han hotar att straffa budbäraren om han inte hittar gärningsmannen. 

    Vetenskapen varnade oss redan i slutet av 1970-talet för att den omfattande användningen av fossil energi skulle leda till global uppvärmning, vilket i sin tur skulle orsaka en förändring av klimatet på ett sätt som radikalt förändrar livsvillkoren på planeten. Sedan dess har den vetenskapliga kunskapen vuxit om effekterna av en ökad koncentration av växthusgaser i atmosfären. I dag råder det inget tvivel om att klimatkrisen är ett hot mot civilisationens överlevnad. Allra värst drabbade är fattiga samhällen som i mycket liten utsträckning bidragit till utsläppen av växthusgaser.

    Vetenskapssamfundet har inte bara mobiliserats – och mobiliserat sig – för att producera kunskap om antropogen klimatförändring, den har också tagit på sig att kommunicera denna kunskap till politiker och beslutsfattare. Kanske trodde vetenskapssamfundet att det skulle räcka med att producera vetenskaplig kunskap och att ge en sanningsenlig redogörelse av denna kunskap för att få världens politiker och makthavare att agera. Det var i så fall naivt. Det politiska och ekonomiska ledarskapet har i bästa fall givit en läpparnas bekännelsetill de massiva vetenskapliga bevisen på att det är nödvändigt att drastiskt minska användningen av fossila bränslen och inom en snar framtid helt fasa ut dom. 

    Verkligheten är att det har skett en ständigt ökande produktion och användning av fossila bränslen. Det har genererats mer koldioxid från förbränning av fossila bränslen efter 1990, det år som FN:s klimatpanel IPCC presenterade sin första rapport, än från när industrialiseringen startade på 1800-talet fram till 1990. Men vetenskapssamfundet har inte bara funnit att deras budskap ignoreras, utan också att såväl klimatforskare som de vetenskapliga bevisen ifrågasätts av lobbyister från fossilindustrin och av folkvalda politiker. Antalet angrepp påenskilda forskare och vetenskapliga institutioner som kommunicerar etablerad kunskap om klimatförändring är otaliga.

    Det är mot bakgrund av detta ofantliga – obegripliga – svek från politiker och andra makthavare, som man ska förstå det upprop till uppror som den då nybildade aktivist-gruppen Extinction Rebellion (XR) deklarerade utanför det brittiska parlament i oktober 2018:

    "Vi deklarerar härmed att det sociala kontraktets band är ogiltiga och av intet värde, att regeringen har gjort dessa ogiltiga genom sin fortsatta underlåtenhet att agera på ett ansvarsfullt sätt. Vi uppmanar varje principfast och fredlig medborgare att göra uppror med oss."

    Det slags uppror som XR uppmanar till är helt fredligt, alltså ingen stormning av riksdagshus eller angrepp på politiker. Den övergripande strategin är att skapa uppmärksamhet om klimatfrågan genom fredliga demonstrationer och civil olydnad. Precis som i samband med kvinnors kamp för rösträtt runtom i Europa och medborgarrättsrörelsen i USA, så används civil olydnad som ett medel för att kräva att etablerade demokratiska och rättsliga principer omsätts i praktiken. I det ena fallet deklarationer om alla människors lika värde, i det andra enhållbar utveckling som leder till en god miljö för nuvarande och kommande generationer. 

    XR har tre krav: Tala klarspråk om klimatkrisen; Agera nu (inte 2030, 2035 eller 2045); Verka för en deltagande och inkluderande demokrati, rättvis omställning och transparens. De tre kraven kan tyckas ganska självklara i en liberal demokrati som hyllar förnuft och vetenskap. Men precis som när suffragetter och medborgarrättsaktivister krävde vad somborde vara en självklarhet i ett demokratiskt samhälle, så möts fredliga klimataktivister av en tilltagande repression från ordningsmakt och rättsväsende, och populistiska politiker utmålar dem som ett ”hot” – oklart mot vad. Lika litet som att ignorera eller misstänklig-göra klimatvetenskapen är en framgångsrik strategi för att lösa klimatkrisen, så är det inte meningsfyllt att kriminalisera fredliga aktivister som kämpar för en god miljö för nuvarande och kommande generationer. Aktivister kommer inte att sluta protestera mot politikernas klimatsvek för att man utdömer hårdare straff för fredliga protester. Tvärtom, i takt med att klimatkrisens effekter blir alltmer påtagliga kommer protesterna att tillta

    Put a Tiger in Your Text:: Metalepsis and Media Discourse2009In: Carriages and Computers: Aesthetic Technologies in Literature from the 18th to the 21th Century / [ed] Gunnar Foss & Yngve Sandhej Jacobsen, Trondheim: Tapir Academic Press , 2009, p. 143-156Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this essay is the extensive use of metalepsis as an argumentative and rhetorical device in media discourse, and in particular in advertising. Metalepsis, a form of metonymy, sets up an inverted relation - causal, logical or contiguous - between terms and/or objects, either as an aesthetic effect or a means of persuasion. The first part of the essay discusses the use of metalepsis in literature and film; the second part discusses the use of the figure in mass media and advertising; the third part discusses the relation between advertising, art, and popular culture. The final part of the essay discusses the pervasive use metalepsis in advertising. Since metalepsis is a powerful rhetorical device, I have chosen the figure of the tiger to illustrate how it operates in advertising and media discourse.

    Spacing Law and Politics: The Constitution and Representation of the Juridical2016 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Examining the inherent spatiality of law, both theoretically and as social practice, this book presents a genealogical account of the emergence and the development of the juridical. In an analysis that stretches from ancient Greece, through late antiquity and early modern and modern Europe, and on to the contemporary courtroom, it considers legal and philosophical texts, artistic and literary works, as well as judicial practices, in order to elicit and document a series of critical moments in the history of juridical space. Offering a more nuanced understanding of law than that found in traditional philosophical, political or social accounts of legal history, Dahlberg forges a critical account of the intimate relations between law and politics that shows how juridical space is determined and conditioned in ways that are integral to the very functioning – and malfunctioning – of law.

    The Language of Late Fossil Capital2023In: Nordic Journal of Media Studies, E-ISSN 2003-184X, Vol. 5, no 1, p. 172-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay studies the propaganda language of contemporary – or late – fossil capital. Whereas the traditional understanding of propaganda focuses on the dissemination of information (or disinformation) in order to promote a political cause or ideology, I argue that the main form and vehicle of propaganda for late fossil capital is the massive use of terms and tropes, together with particular rhetorical devices, for example, the interpellation of the individual consumer as responsible for mitigating climate change. The essay studies the language of fossil capital based primarily on marketing material by fossil fuel companies, in the US and other Western countries, such as advertising and advertorials, current and archived websites, social media, corporate sustainability reports, as well as material produced by industry organisation such as the American Petroleum Institute and the Heartland Institute. A large part of the material is taken from two North American legal complaints, Connecticut v. Exxon Mobil Corporation (2020) and City of New York v. Exxon Mobil Corp. et al. (2021).

    Exhibiting Disasters: Mediation, historicity and spectatorship2012In: Media Culture and Society, ISSN 0163-4437, E-ISSN 1460-3675, Vol. 34, no 4, p. 472-487Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this article is to draw attention to a long-standing history of exhibiting disasters to distant audiences. In particular, the article explores the transregional imaginaries and cross-temporal connections that emerge from the history of what may be labelled the disaster display or disaster show. This refers to a particular genre of multimedia re-enactments of extreme events that developed in the context of temporary exhibitions and popular amusements in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Disaster displays typically involved visual representations, sound effects, fireworks, lectures and theatrical performances, and invited their audiences to experience a diversity of extreme events, for example distant wars, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, fire fighting and floods. In offering a blend of special effects and the thrills of authenticity, disaster shows copied and competed with, and sometimes incorporated, some of the traits of a variety of attractions in turn-of-the-century popular visual culture, such as serialized wax displays, moving panoramas and early film. The article especially investigates some of these intermedialities but it also discusses how the displays engaged and positioned the audience.

    Light and Perception: Study of the Effects of Daylight and Artificial Light on Affect, Mood and Sleepiness under a Sky-Lighting MachineManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigated whether light conditions have an impact on mental states, perception and perceived health symptoms in a controlled experiment. Twenty-eight participants, divided into groups of two, experienced the same room in two diffused light conditions (Daylight DL or static Artificial Light AL), which were experienced in a repeated measure design layout, controlled for order. Both light conditions offered a stimulus of at least 250 melanopic equivalent daylight illuminance (mEDI) lx, without a view. Participants were observed during different tasks, an individual reading session and a collaborative construction game session. The results show an effect of Light Condition on Mood and Pleasure, Mood was higher and Pleasure was better in the Daylight Condition. We did not find an effect of Light Condition on Arousal and on Sleepiness during the whole duration of the sessions, although results indicate lower Sleepiness in DL during the construction game session. Results indicate that the recommended mEDI levels can be maintained in a day-lit-only space during working hours (9:00 to 17:00 h) around the Equinox in Stockholm, 59°N. In the analysis limited to the DL sessions, we found that illuminance values, together with one measure of variation, are correlated to better pleasure. The current results show that the effects on Mood and Pleasure do significantly differ between Light Conditions but participants were not aware whether the source was artificial or natural. Thus we presume these effects could be even more relevant in a room with a view.

    Rawls’s Original Position and Algorithmic Fairness2021In: Philosophy & Technology, ISSN 2210-5433, E-ISSN 2210-5441, Vol. 34, no 4, p. 1803-1817Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern society makes extensive use of automated algorithmic decisions, fueled by advances in artificial intelligence. However, since these systems are not perfect, questions about fairness are increasingly investigated in the literature. In particular, many authors take a Rawlsian approach to algorithmic fairness. This article aims to identify some complications with this approach: Under which circumstances can Rawls’s original position reasonably be applied to algorithmic fairness decisions? First, it is argued that there are important differences between Rawls’s original position and a parallel algorithmic fairness original position with respect to risk attitudes. Second, it is argued that the application of Rawls’s original position to algorithmic fairness faces a boundary problem in defining relevant stakeholders. Third, it is observed that the definition of the least advantaged, necessary for applying the difference principle, requires some attention in the context of algorithmic fairness. Finally, it is argued that appropriate deliberation in algorithmic fairness contexts often require more knowledge about probabilities than the Rawlsian original position allows. Provided that these complications are duly considered, the thought-experiment of the Rawlsian original position can be useful in algorithmic fairness decisions.

    Abstract [sv]

    Artikeln argumenterar för att vi bör lämna upptagenheten av att vara övervakade i det digitala samhället till att intressera oss mer för det arbete som integriteten fordrar: av företag, av staten men även av oss själva. Det väsentliga med alla data som samlas in är inte att vi får något slags ursprunglig integritet kränkt utan att vi ses som i första hand dataproducenter snarare än konsumenter eller medborgare, exempelvis, samt att vi måste ägna mycket tid åt att administrera våra data och säkerheten omkring dem. Detta skick har en lång historia. Med stöd i en omfattande kampanj som bedrevs i dagspress under 1970-talet för att lära svenskarna att utnyttja den nya datalagen, visar artikeln hur vi redan för ett halvt sekel sedan fick lära oss att hantera våra egna data och vår egen integritet. Detta arbete behöver vi diskutera på allvar: vem gynnas av att vi ständigt är sysselsatta med att hantera våra data och gränserna för/tillgången till dem?

    Recommending news in traditional media companies2021In: The AI Magazine, ISSN 0738-4602, Vol. 42, no 3, p. 55-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The adoption of recommender systems in online news personalization has made it possible to tailor the news stream to the individual interests of each reader. Previous research on commercial recommender systems has emphasized their use in large-scale media houses and technology companies, and real-world experiments indicate substantial improvements of click rates and user satisfaction. It is less understood how smaller media houses are coping with this new technology, how the technology affects their business models, their editorial processes, and their news production in general. Here we report on the experiences from numerous Scandinavian media houses that have experimented with various recommender strategies and streamlined their news production to provide personalized news experiences. In addition to influencing the content and style of news stories and the working environment of journalists, the news recommender systems have been part of a profound digital transformation of the whole media industry. Interestingly, many media houses have found it undesirable to automate the entire recommendation process and look for approaches that combine automatic recommendations with editorial choices.

    Introducing Political Ecology of Creative-Ai2023In: Handbook of Critical Studies of Artificial Intelligence / [ed] Simon Lindgren, Cheltenham, United Kingdom: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2023Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter introduces the perspective of political ecology to the application of artificial intelligence to artistic processes (Creative-Ai). Hence, the environmental and social impact of the development and employment of Creative-Ai are the focus of this text, when we consider them as part of an economic system that transforms artistic creation to a commodity. I first analyse specific Creative-Ai cases, and then conduct a speculation that takes Jacques Attali’s writing on the role of music in society as a vantage point, and investigates the environmental and social consequences of an automatic composition network controlled by a large music streaming platform. Whereas the possibilities that emerge from Creative-Ai may be promising from an artistic perspective, its entanglement with corporate interest raises severe concerns. These concerns can only be addressed by a wide cross-sectoral alliance between research and arts that develops a critical perspective on the future directions of Creative-Ai.

    Speculation and Fiction in Exploring Values and Ethics in Creative-AI Technologies2023Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    I see speculation and imaginaries as interesting objects for examining our values, norms, and onto-epistemological orientations, and I think they have both the capacity to actively transform our thinking and future-making, but also to provide rich material to reflect on in terms of our societal and individual situated perspectives and tensions within them. My work is directed towards addressing the structures that work towards oppressing; gendering, racialization, and disregard for non-humans (which also ties to the environmental crisis that serves as a gloomy backdrop of our times) - in the situated context of emerging AI art technologies. My work has included speculative first-person and workshop projects to explore probable, possible, and alternative pathways for AI Art technologies. In my presentation, I will describe my recent research works related to this. In the first work, through first-person speculation I imagined AI Art tools that would incorporate post-humanist and feminist care ethics orientation, exposing tensions in how the care of non-humans is not present in the artifacts/technologies and the peoples' mental landscapes. For the second study, I organized speculative sketching workshops, in which artists and engineers imagined future AI art tools for their own practice, and discussed critical considerations for these imaginary tools. Following this, I analyzed these imaginary tools from the perspective of what values and labor arrangements are embedded in them. A third research project that I am currently working on is focused on imaginary research abstracts: organizing workshops in which scientists (computational creativity scholars) write fictional future research paper abstracts. These abstracts are then critically discussed and analyzed from the perspective of values, ideologies, ontologies, and epistemologies that are embedded in them.To conclude, I see speculation and imaginaries as interesting objects for examining our situated orientations, directing my work towards addressing the structures that work towards oppressing; gendering, racialization, and disregard for non-humans.

    Narratives in Russian Media of Conflict and Cooperation in the Arctic2019Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Arctic has been narrated as both a region of cooperationand a region of conflict. This paper presents an analysis of how three Russian newspapers (Rossiyakaya Gazeta, Izvestiya and Novaya Gazeta) reported on the Arctic region between 2007 and 2016.The aim of the analysis is to provide a foundation for a discussion of Russian perceptions of conflict and cooperation in the Arctic in a decade when the desecuritization and peaceful cooperation that began in the late 1980s and early 1990s was challenged by a combination of changes to the physical environment and a shifting geopolitical landscape.The paper also explores how Russia’s narratives of conflict and cooperation fit into narratives about the region that have emerged in the international media. Last, the paper discusses what Russian media narratives can tell us about the priorities and future trends of Russia’s Arctic policy.

    Advertising product improvement opportunities using segmentation in Video-on-Demand services: A case study of MTG’s opportunities in the shift from television to streaming video2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    More and more people choose to watch television online through online video-on- demand services. For media corporations, such as the Modern Times Group (MTG), this means that video-on-demand will become an increasingly important source of revenue. Because video-on-demand is an online service, advertising products offered therein are in competition with other online advertising products. Currently, MTG’s video-on-demand advertising products are the same as on regular television, meaning they haven’t yet taken advantage of any advertising product development opportunities made possible by Internet technology. The purpose of this thesis is therefore to determine what MTG’s strategy should be to improve the competitiveness and revenue of their video-on-demand advertising products, and what key concerns need to be addressed in order to realize the determined strategy. By request of the commissioner, MTG, possible uses of segmentation to achieve the strategy are studied.

    The methods used to collect data include multiple interviews both at MTG and at their current advertising customers, as well as web analytics and a questionnaire. Both qualitative and quantitative analysis was used to answer the research questions. Findings suggest that MTG should strive to improve the engagement of their advertising products, through the use of contextual segmentation and self-segmentation. This goes against the current trend in online advertising, where segmentation is primarily used for ad targeting. The reason for not adhering to the trend is that MTG’s advertising customers operate in a television mindset, where ad targeting is of a very limited nature and engagement is of greater perceived value.

    Maximizing the Diversity of Exposure in a Social Network2022In: IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, ISSN 1041-4347, E-ISSN 1558-2191, Vol. 34, no 9, p. 4357-4370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social-media platforms have created new ways for citizens to stay informed and participate in public debates. However, to enable a healthy environment for information sharing, social deliberation, and opinion formation, citizens need to be exposed to sufficiently diverse viewpoints that challenge their assumptions, instead of being trapped inside filter bubbles. In this paper, we take a step in this direction and propose a novel approach to maximize the diversity of exposure in a social network. We formulate the problem in the context of information propagation, as a task of recommending a small number of news articles to selected users. In the proposed setting, we take into account content and user leanings, and the probability of further sharing an article. Our model allows to capture the balance between maximizing the spread of information and ensuring the exposure of users to diverse viewpoints. The resulting problem can be cast as maximizing a monotone and submodular function, subject to a matroid constraint on the allocation of articles to users. It is a challenging generalization of the influence-maximization problem. Yet, we are able to devise scalable approximation algorithms by introducing a novel extension to the notion of random reverse-reachable sets. We experimentally demonstrate the efficiency and scalability of our algorithm on several real-world datasets.

    The Prosthetic Generation Is all Around Us: Feelings and Emotions About Knee Replacement Surgery and Their Impact on Overall Sentiment: An Abstract2018In: Back to the Future:: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Springer Nature , 2018, p. 561-Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In their attempts to reduce the uncertainty associated with knee replacement surgeries, patients turn to social media, where they commonly rely on the experiences expressed by other patients. In this study, we first employ IBM Watson to examine how patients talk about their emotions and express sentiment through their comments online. We then use a latent class cluster modelling procedure to segment these patients into distinct groups, according to their emotions (anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness and surprise), sentiment and their overall satisfaction with knee replacement surgery. Our findings show how qualitative online data can be transformed into quantitative insights regarding underlying market segments, which could then be targeted through different strategies by both marketers and healthcare practitioners.

    How Can the Ratings be So Different?: Reasoning to Identify Factors Explaining Airbnb’s Satisfaction Rating Advantage over Hotels: An Abstract2018In: Boundary Blurred:: A Seamless Customer Experience in Virtual and Real Spaces / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Springer Nature , 2018, p. 537-538Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Extant literature indicates that accessing online word of mouth (eWOM) impacts subsequent purchasing and other consumer behaviors (Chatterjee 2001; Chen et al. 2011; Teng et al. 2017). Specifically, in the context of the sharing economy, which is still relatively new to some consumers, the reviews are of increasing importance as there are few traditional indicators of service quality (Ert et al. 2016). Gretzel and Yoo (2008) observe that online reviews may contain information pertaining to the quality of a service or product, which could assist in reducing risk when purchasing experience goods. However, in the case of the travel industry, it has been observed that on average satisfaction ratings for Airbnb listings are higher than satisfaction ratings of hotel listings on TripAdvisor (Zervas et al. 2015). In this paper, we review and reason on a set of key factors which may drive this gap in rating averages. In particular six propositions are developed from the relevant literature and are organized into three groupings: expectations, experiences, and evaluation. With regard to expectations, two propositions are developed relating to price anchoring (Kahneman et al. 1982) from hotel rates during the search phase and the uncertainty surrounding the anticipation of staying in the home of a stranger. This first set of propositions suggests travelers reduce their expectations of an upcoming Airbnb stay due to the comparatively low price. The second set of propositions concern the experience specific to Airbnb that would lead to surprisingly positive experiences of an Airbnb stay itself, such as accessing local wisdom from and socially interacting with Airbnb hosts (Week 2012). The last set of two propositions relate to evaluating the experience of an Airbnb stay. The first proposition is specific to an Airbnb stay in that the previous reviews may increase the chance of the anchoring bias taking effect in the review and rating process. Whereas, the second proposition suggests the lack of anonymity (Lapidot-Lefler and Barak, 2012) as a reviewer influences guests to rate an Airbnb accommodation more positively. These six propositions are presented collectively in the form of a reported satisfaction advantage conceptual model for reference by academics and practitioners.

    Racialising ancient skeletons: How haplogroups are mobilised in the re-writing of origin stories in the Indian media2022In: Birth Controlled: Selective Reproduction and Neoliberal Eugenics in South Africa and India, Manchester University Press , 2022, p. 84-111Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter investigates how genomic practices can reinforce population thinking beyond the lab, looking particularly at how social divisions are essentialised as biological categories in India. The case chosen is the media discourse surrounding DNA recovered from skeletons belonging to the Indus Valley Civilisation, a sophisticated urban civilisation that flourished in the North West of the Indian Subcontinent between 3300 and 1300 BCE. Debates in the Indian media revolve around the question of indigeneity and the idea of an unbroken lineage of Hindus versus invaders and colonisers. These theorisations of a genetic re-inscription of population groups are bolstered by archaeological evidence and linguistic theories, which have historically resulted in politically charged debates. Through an analysis of 31 articles published in seven Indian newspapers and magazines, the chapter examines ways in which genetic evidence has been mobilised to argue for either an ‘Aryan Migration Theory’ or an indigenous Vedic culture while normatively classifying populations as ‘indigenous’, ‘Aryan’, ‘Dravidian’, ‘upper-caste’, among others. It argues that the popularisation of biomedical ideas of race poses potentially dangerous consequences for India, as ancient DNA testing is used to make arguments against those who ‘do not belong’ and as justification for various forms of political repression.

    The Ironies of Digital Citizenship: Educational Imaginaries and Digital Losers AcrossThree Decades2018In: Digital Culture & Society, ISSN 2364-2114, E-ISSN 2364-2122, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 39-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our everyday use of digital technologies, platforms and infrastructures is often portrayed as an autonomous technical development, guided by clever and independent innovations, rather than broad sociotechnical imaginaries that inspire parliamentary support and governance. This article will consequently shed the light on the often-overlooked structural and societal efforts that have historically shaped the digital citizen of today. For the past 70 years or so, non-formal adult education about computers and computing has been a key part of political ambitions to create a desirable future. Over time, digital technologies have also become a precondition for the enactment of citizenship. That is, ‘digital citizenship’ is increasingly positioned as a fundamental requirement for democratic participation. The purpose of this paper is to trace how the digital citizen, and its accompanying problems, has been construed over time, particularly through educational imaginaries. What problems is the digital citizen a solution to? Who has been presented as problematic, and who, subsequently, has become the primary target for educational solutions? What skills have been described as indispensable for the digital citizen during different periods in history? By using Sweden as a vantage point this paper provides both concrete examples as well as perspectives on transnational discourses. In focus for the study are discourses concerning non-formal adult education, in the form of awareness campaigns, social programmes and adult liberal education about computers aimed at the general citizenry, during three periods in time: the 1950s, the 1980s, and today. The contribution is a critical take on how the citizen has increasingly become connected to digital technologies, and how this convergence has at the same time created digital exclusion.

    The Taste of Ageing, a 26-Year Analysis of Publications in the International Journal of Wine Business Research: An Abstract2018In: Back to the Future:: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Springer Nature , 2018, p. 341-342Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses the content of the International Journal of Wine Business Research (IJWBR) and gives editors, reviewers, authors and practitioners an overview over the journal’s development over 26 years. The articles published in the journal since its inception in 1989 till 2014, inclusive, were analysed in two time frames. The first time frame covers 1989–2006 as the International Journal of Wine Marketing (IJWM), while the second time frame covers 2007–2014 as IJWBR, the new name under which the journal relaunched. All types of articles are included in the analysis with the exception of editorials, guest editorials and research notes. Five main themes are addressed: the nature of authorship, the most prolific and influential authors, characteristics of the manuscripts, regional distribution of the wine’s region-of-origin and focal markets, and the most common research themes. The content analysis of this journal sheds light on how the style of the journal has evolved since its inception in 1989 onto the second time frame. The types of articles and methods used have been consistent in the early issues (1989–2006). However, since 2007 the journal has welcomed more academic and quantitative articles. The change motivated new authors to write longer articles, collaborate more and use more references, tables and figures. As a result, the journal’s impact has increased significantly. In addition, empirical studies published in the journal indicated an increase in the publications covering the Americas as both regions of origin and focal markets, as compared to other regions. This is the first time a content analysis has been carried out for IJWBR. The objective is to help authors identifying new and interesting research areas as well as to give editors and reviewers insight into the style and areas explored since the journal’s inception. By using software tools for data collection and analysis, the study is bound to the limitations inherent from these tools.

    Vibrotactile TV for immersive experience2014In: 2014 Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association Annual Summit and Conference, APSIPA 2014, IEEE conference proceedings, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Audio and video are two powerful media forms to shorten the distance between audience/viewer and actors or players in the TV and films. The recent research shows that today people are using more and more multimedia contents on mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones. Therefore, an important question emerges - how can we render high-quality, personal immersive experiences to consumers on these systems? To give audience an immersive engagement that differs from 'watching a play', we have designed a study to render complete immersive media which include the 'emotional information' based on augmented vibrotactile-coding on the back of the user along with audio-video signal. The reported emotional responses to videos viewed with and without haptic enhancement, show that participants exhibited an increased emotional response to media with haptic enhancement. Overall, these studies suggest that the effectiveness of our approach and using a multisensory approach increase immersion and user satisfaction.

    Branding through mobile applications: - A case study of Swedish campaign applications2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    We are a few years into a paradigm shift where mobile Internet usage around the world is increasing fast. Smartphones have in Sweden become the device a substantial proportion of the population have, and companies have seen them as a new way to communicate with consumers. This thesis is a case study of four smartphone applications issued by companies in brand building purposes. The applications are King of the slope by Vattenfall, Körklar? by SalusAnsvar, McWrap Go&Get by McDonalds and Många Sträckor Små by Lantmännen. Empirical materials are gathered through semi-structured interviews with people involved in the creation of each application. Results are then analysed based on what initial goals each issuer had set for the application with the aim of obtain learnings valuable to future application issuers. Findings have shown that the mindset when creating these applications has generally been short-term. This contradicts the nature of a mobile application and its purpose of strengthening a company’s brand, which usually is a long-term process. We advocate a more long-term mindset and a consumer-oriented standpoint instead of product- oriented when creating mobile applications for branding purposes.

    Abstract [en]

    Green Hackathon is an international series of coding events withsustainability purpose. Developers, researchers, environmental practitioners,and anyone else who is interested, work for a limited amount of time to createinnovative software solutions for sustainability. These events have explicitlyaimed to invite a broad spectrum of expertise besides technical expertise. Thisarticle presents the experiences and tensions of including these end users at amostly technically oriented event, and discusses how end-user developmentcould be used to encourage more reflective practices and as well as broadeningthe participation and the interdisciplinary collaboration in these events – withhigher-quality as a prospective outcome.

    Mobile short-form video entertainment enables mainstream public sites to expedite the dissemination of essential information, increase transparency, and maintain trust among decision-making bodies. In view of these benefits, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of citizen engagement with short-form videos using social media almetrics. The purpose of this study is to delineate the driving factors and moderating effects of large-scale interactive participation in TikTok's public accounts committed to sustainable poverty alleviation, a grand challenge that spreads quickly on the official agenda. Specifically, this study estimates negative binomial models based on the complete set of videos, released between 2018 August (the earliest publication date available) and September 2021, in poverty-striken provinces. The results show that appropriate combinations of common themes, music genres, and sentiment can strengthen the involvement and awareness of short-form video entertainment. It serves as convincing proof that 1) content related to human resource development and public policies stimulated the highest level of citizen engagement, and it exceeded all other categories by a large margin; 2) sentiment's moderating roles could be partially confirmed across the common themes and music genres; and 3) while being moderated, popular and epic music could either arise or weaken citizen engagement under the topical series, but the benefits of containing these genres were not limited to performance.

    Fear of an unFAIR planet: Welcome to an exhibition that demonstrates the path to FAIR data and open access to research2023Artistic output (Unrefereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The world faces significant challenges, and research is essential in finding solutions. One obstacle is that much of the research results and data are locked behind paywalls or otherwise hidden, and not accessible to a broader audience. Who knows what advancements and groundbreaking discoveries we are missing due to this confinement? The goal should be to make as much research data and results as open and available as possible. The question is: how do we get there?

    Openness is crucial for addressing today’s major issues, such as the climate crisis, and is about global justice. A recent example of what shared and accessible data can contribute to is the rapid development of new vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic. What other challenges can we solve together with the help of open and accessible research data? Do we need to fear an unFAIR world?
