    Abstract [sv]

    På nätet är vi inte längre bara medborgare eller kunder. Vi är också varor. De data vi läm-nar ut om oss själva är vad andra tjänar pengar på. Men vi vet inte vad de är värda ochvad vi skulle kunna begära i betalning. Transaktionsdimman på internet bör skingrasoch ersättas av transaktionstransparens, skriver sju medie- och it-debattörer.

    Abstract [en]

    A new report confirms that we are responsible for global warming. The continued melting of the Arctic’s sea ice is now widely seen to be true. So too is the idea that this has major global consequences. Is the situation reversible?

    Media and the Politics of Arctic Climate Change: When the Ice Breaks2013Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Arctic sea-ice reached record lows in 2007, and again in 2012. In the international news media, these moments were reflected via striking images of polar bears, crumbling ice chunks and the use of more alarmist metaphors about global climate change. Through these narratives, and despite the periodic disappearance of climate change from media reports due to issue fatigue, a sharper narrative of climate change has entered public discourse: a new global reality where the future is no longer a given. Going beyond media studies as well as descriptive or highly scientific accounts of the impacts of climate change in the Arctic, this book explores how both historical and contemporary mediations, scientific narratives and satellite technology simultaneously capture and reconstruct this new reality of the Anthropocene, where human activities shape the planet. By highlighting the linkages between science, media, environmental change and geopolitics, the informed contributors to the volume invite the reader to reflect on what is local and what is global in today's connected mediatized world.

    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.

    Politiken kring svensk rymdverksamhet: Transkript av ett vittnesseminarium på Tekniska museet i Stockholm den 17 januari 20182018Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The  witness  seminar  “Politiken  kring  svensk  rymdverksam-het” (Politics relating to Swedish space activities) was held at Tekniska museet on January 17, 2018, and was led by Lennart Nordh,  assisted  by  Johan  Gärdebo.  The  seminar  focused  on  the relationship between Swedish space activities and various forms of politics, from the 1960s until the 2000s. The discus-sants  presented  various  definitions  of  politics,  recurrently  re-turning  to  the  question  whether  or  not  Sweden  ever  had  a  comprehensive space policy or not. According to the partici-pants,  Swedish  space  activities  have  been  linked  to  their  real  or  perceived  contributions  to  other  policy  areas—research, technology,  foreign  policy,  regional  policy,  and  European  in-tegration—but without a clear overriding political vision per-taining  to  space  specifically.  Initiatives  were  characterized  as  “management  by  opportunities,”  which  implies  making  full  use of opportunities arising in- or outside of the space activi-ties.  In  addition  to  this,  policy-makers,  whether  within  the  Swedish  National  Space  Board,  the  Swedish  Space  Corpora-tion, or the Swedish space industry, have called upon allies in other European governments, organizations and industries, as well  as  individuals  within  the  Swedish  establishment  to  exert  pressure  on  the  Swedish  Government  at  critical  moments.  On other occasions foreign pressure was exerted without any proposals  from  Swedish  actors.  It  was  noted  that  regional  support  for  Kiruna  has  been  important  since  Swedish  space  activities began in the 1960s, and the Esrange space range was established.  The  seminar  identified  several  examples  of  how  policy-makers  within  the  Swedish  space  sector  negotiated  with  governmental  officials  to  gain  support  for projects  and  to expand the scope of space activities into other policy areas. Telecommunication,  remote  sensing  and  meteorology  were  discussed as the main areas in which space technology found operational use—although research and geographic surveying was  also  mentioned.  Since  the  1990s,  the  main  changes  have  been  driven  by  the  Swedish  integration  into  the  European  Union,  the  reduced  Swedish  ownership  in  major  industrial companies, and the increased commercialization of space ac-tivities.  The  previously  dominant  state  funding  was  comple-mented by increasing private financing, and new start-ups be-gan   to   compete   with   previously   established   companies.   Meanwhile, the ability of Swedish state actors to influence the future of Swedish space enterprises has diminished.

    Exceptionalism and Evasion: How Scholars Reason About Air Travel2022In: Academic Flying and the Means of Communication / [ed] Kristian Bjørkdahl & Adrian Santiago Franco Duharte, Palgrave Macmillan, 2022, p. 159-183Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Understanding how scholars reason about their own flying habits is important when dealing with the problems of large emissions from academic air travel. This study is based on a travel habits survey with scholars at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. KTH has relatively high emissions from air travel, but at the same time, it has a high profile in matters of sustainability and a lot of research related to this theme. One can therefore assume a high degree of knowledge about the climate crisis and the climate impact of various actions. It is also plausible that KTH scholars meet special expectations to be role models and that practices in conflict with their teaching can have consequences for the public confidence in the university. In this study, we look at how scholars reason about how emissions from their flying could be reduced. Their responses display a spectrum of varying attitudes, from climate scepticism to a commitment to radical transformation, with the majority in between, either suggesting different types of concrete changes or invoking arguments to justify the status quo. The proposed interventions, several of which are ingenious and wise, can guide university managements to strategies that have support from employees. The more reluctant arguments point to cultural and discursive habits that must be understood and met in an empathetic way.

    Kerstin Fredga: En intervju av Nina Wormbs och Johan Gärdebo 1 december 20172017Data set
    Abstract [en]

    The interview treats Kerstin Fredga’s experiences as a scientist and increasingly a decision-maker for Swedish space activities, from the 1960s until present. Fredga became involved in astronomy from an early age. She studied astronomy at Uppsala University and Stockholm University, and also participated in summer schools where she met many future decision-makers of scientific organisations in Europe. She later travelled to the US and Goddard Space Flight Center. This period allowed Fredga to focus and make contributions to studies of the sun. It was during this period in the US that she formed a close friendship with Bengt Hultqvist who would later build up the Kiruna Geophysical Institute. Back in Sweden, Fredga participated in the establishment of the Swedish Board for Space Activities (SBSA) in 1972. In 1988, Fredga took over as director general for SBSA and oversaw its transformation into the Swedish National Space Board (SNSB). SNSB worked closely with the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) in promoting Swedish space activities. Fredga was project scientist for Viking, the first Swedishsatellite. Fredga describes that many of the successes for SNSB and SSC were due to influential networks. As part of building scientific programmes, like Viking, Fredga sought to make the space activities also support industrial aims and be of regional support to Kiruna,where many of the space activities were conducted. Membership in the European Space Agency (ESA) provided Swedish scientists with opportunities to participate in the European space programmes with instruments on major European satellites. Meanwhile, the European Union took a greater role in financing space applications. During this period, Fredga’s work to support the Swedish space activities became more complex.

    The movement heritage: Scale, place, and pathscapes in Anthropocene tourism2015In: Tourism and the Anthropocene / [ed] Martin Gren and Edward Huijbens, London: Routledge, 2015, p. 131-151Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Anthropogenic change is large-scale. But the Anthropocene is also a result of small-scale, local landscape use and change. These changes and uses are often based in movement. How do movements (sport, outdoor life, tourism etc.) affect landscapes physically and mentally? In the Anthropocene, these questions are increasingly important to answer.

    Mobility in the landscape is under-theorized. The cultural history of walking, with Rousseau, Austen, Thoreau, Muir and others have been discussed (e.g. Solnit 2001). Understandings of landscape monuments are often tied to nationalism (Lowenthal 1998, 2008, Hettne et al 2006) and are generally limited to monuments within traditional areas of cultural and natural heritage (buildings, infrastructure, rare species). But the importance of movement as a practice for understanding landscape and ”life worlds” has also been underlined (Ingold 2000, 2011, Hastrup 2009). The movement heritage, in terms of skiing tracks, hiking trails etc. has to no small degree shaped understanding of the landscape. We investigate how these landscapes of mobility have been and can be articulated, and how they can contribute to a sustainable tourism in the Anthropocene.

    We seek to combine this growing understanding of cultural heritage aspects of landscape with theories from the modern landscapes of bodily movement. These landscapes have been labeled portable (Qviström 2013), but in contrast to this portability, the landscapes of movement we focus on are not portable. Instead, their protection is based on their cultural history and emotional value. Is it possible to combine economic and ecological interests in tourism in the Anthropocene?

    Environing Technologies: A Theory of Making Environment2018In: History & Technology, ISSN 0734-1512, E-ISSN 1477-2620, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 101-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The central proposal of this article is that environing technologies shape and structure the way in which nature becomes environment, and as such used, perceived and understood. The argument builds on the understanding that environment is the result of human intervention.Technology is here understood broadly as a terraforming practise, materially and conceptually. We suggest that the compound environing technologies enable us to see environmental change on multiple scales and in new registers. That technologies alter the physical world is not new; our contribution focuses on the conceptual, epistemological, economic and emotional appreciation of systems and aggregates of technologies that is part and parcel of material change. The environing technologies that enable such articulation and comprehension hold potential in the future transformation that our societies need to undergo to overcome the crisis of environment and climate.

    Abstract [en]

    Over the past half century, the global environment has become subject to an accelerated pace of mediation and datafication. This ongoing transition has become so comprehensive that the knowledge, management and governance of the Earth system is dependent on enormous flows of data from a “vast machine” of measuring tools. These processes combined have formed what we call a “mediated planet,” subject to interpretation and shared human decision-making – that should ideally be democratic, inclusive and accountable. As environmental datafication continues to accelerate, private corporations are gaining increasing influence on and power over the associated collections of data. This is a cause for concern, as the global environmental commons are a public interest of concern to all people. This article argues for the need to critically research the challenges and risks associated with the rapid datafication of the environment, specifically in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for climate change (13), the ocean (14), biodiversity (15) and inclusive and accountable institutions (16). More knowledge is needed of how the SDGs and their supporting networks influence data-generation on a mediated planet, and how issues of access to and use of environmental data, as well as data ownership and AI implementation, can best be navigated. We contend that such knowledge can help enhance the democratic potential of the SDGs to build public trust and secure broad participation in global environmental governance in ways that also support peaceful and inclusive societies, as promised by SDG 16.

    Internal Deliberation Defending Climate-Harmful Behavior2022In: Argumentation: an international journal on reasoning, ISSN 0920-427X, E-ISSN 1572-8374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Most people in countries with the highest climate impact per capita are well awareof the climate crisis and do not deny the science. They worry about climate and haveclimate engaged attitudes. Still, their greenhouse-gas emissions are often high. Howcan we understand acting contrary to our knowledge? A simple answer is that wedo not want to give up on benefits or compromise our quality of life. However, it ispainful to live with discrepancies between knowledge and action. To be able to avoidtaking the consequences of our knowledge, we deal with the gap by motivating toourselves that the action is still acceptable. In this article, we use topical analysisto examine such processes of motivation by looking at the internal deliberation of399 climate engaged people’s accounts of their reasoning when acting against theirown knowledge. We found that these topical processes can be described in at leastfour different ways which we call rationalization, legitimization, justification andimploration. By focusing on topoi we can make visible how individual forms of rea-soning interact with culturally developed values, habits and assumptions in creatingenthymemes. We believe that these insights can contribute to understanding the con-ditions for climate transition communication.

    A Nordic satellite project understood as a trans-national effort2006In: History & Technology, ISSN 0734-1512, E-ISSN 1477-2620, Vol. 22, no 3, p. 257-275Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Trans‐national technological projects display certain features compared to national projects. Drawing on earlier work, this article delineates some of these features and uses them in order to understand a specific trans‐national project, namely a Nordic satellite in the 1980s. It is shown that some of the conflicts and difficulties can be explained by the fact that the project was trans‐national, but a fuller understanding requires specificities to be taken into account as well.

    Abstract [en]

    FOR A NUMBER of years the Division of History of Science and Technology, KTH issued an annual report listing our publications and conference participation, seminars and visits as well as teaching and PhD training. These reports have proven valuable for many reasons, not the least as both personal and institutional reference over time. We can now look at these documents and compare, see patterns and remember. In this report, we have tried to take a step further, including some discussion and reflection.

    THE LAST FEW years have been transformative in many ways and the Division has grown in scale and in scope. In 2011 the name was changed to the Division of History of Science, Technology and Environment and we have doubled the turnover since 2005. We are in the middle of our second strategy and it is valuable to try and both summarize and look forward in a more concerted way. The report at hand therefore covers the years 2012-2014, but also makes references back in time as well as towards the future. It functions not only as a catalogue of achievements but also as an opportunity to reflect on what we have done and how we can continue doing research, teach and interact with society in a way that ensures not only high quality but which is also sustainable. Growing is great in many ways, but to also keep the things we value is a challenge.

    A FEW THINGS should be noted. During this period Martin Emanuel, Ingemar Pettersson and Anna Åberg defended their theses for the doctoral degree and Petra Bauer and Carlos Viktorsson defended theirs for the licentiate degree. Per Högselius was promoted to associate professor and Sabine Höhler became Docent at KTH. Marco Armiero was hired as director for the KTH Environmental Humanities Laboratory and Miyase Christensen appointed Guest Professor in Media and Communication Studies. You can read more about them and other things in the following pages.

    I WOULD LIKE to thank all coworkers for their respective contributions to this text, and most of all I want to stress the work done by Susanna Lidström. It has been an interesting and learning experience to try and put this together and I hope you will find it worthwhile reading.
