    Connecting Europe: Politics of Information Society in the EU and Turkey2009Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the 1990s and 2000s, in parallel with new media-relatedinitiatives in the US and the Asia-Pacific region, the EU launched itsown information society policies in an effort to become, "the mostcompetitive knowledge-based economy in the world by 2010." In additionto full members, the task of achieving a "European Information Societyfor all" was also expected from candidate countries. The past decadeshave witnessed a number of key initiatives in the form of internationalevents and summits in which questions related with the globalinformation society were addressed.  In Connecting Europe: InformationSociety in the EU and Turkey , Dr. Miyase Christensen explores theevolution of information society efforts in the EU and  Turkey inrelation to the surrounding policy environment, globalization processes. The book presents a detailed account of crucial developments to datebased upon in-depth interviews with key stakeholders and policyanalysis. As Christensen illustrates, the factors that shape thepolitical economy of the telecommunications and ICT sectors in the EUand Turkey are many and increasingly more complex.

    Abstract [en]

    This special issue of Television & New Media brings together current research on media technologies, society, and culture in the Middle East from diverse methodological and analytical perspectives. The topics addressed cover a wide spectrum: circulation of Arab music videos and public discourse; Lebanese bloggers and mediated public spheres; transnational television audiences and ontological security; social media, TV talk shows, and political change in Egypt; youth-generated Arab media and cultural politics; and the Arab Spring as an ephemeral communicative space. Together, the articles provide a panorama of how today's multimodal media geographies and engaged actors reinscribe public cultures and politics in the Middle East.

    Online mediations in transnational spaces: cosmopolitan (re)formations of belonging and identity in the Turkish diaspora2012In: Ethnic and Racial Studies, ISSN 0141-9870, E-ISSN 1466-4356, Vol. 35, no 5, p. 888-905Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The lives of transnational groups and individuals are marked by a spatial and imaginary split: a phenomenon wherein identity, belonging and representation have become increasingly elusive concepts, and the realm of the ‘cultural’ vastly important. And, the theoretical compasses of cosmopolitanism and transnationalism are particularly relevant and illuminating in considering social space, mediated communication and belonging in relation to urban diasporic communities and gendered subjectivities. The aim of this paper is to address expressions of identity and belonging at the intersection of online communicative practice and offline spatial formations, with a focus on the specificities of gendered constructions of sociality and subjectivity in the diaspora.

    Technology, place and mediatized cosmopolitanism2014In: Mediatized Worlds: Culture and Society in a Media Age, Palgrave Macmillan, 2014, p. 159-173Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The past two decades of media and communication studies have been dominated by a research agenda marked by an overwhelming attention paid to two phenomena: technological change and globalization. The study of digitalization and personalization of technology, particularly in its earlier phase, focused primarily on the emancipatory potential of information and communication technologies, or ICTs (e.g., Plant, 1997; Splender, 1995). While later research incorporated a more down-to-earth appreciation of technology, technological determinism continues to be reinvoked by way of casting new media tools as powerful agents of social change. This leads to the production of reductionist visions, particularly during times of perceived technological breakthrough (such as the Arab Spring and the case of Wikileaks), and a narrow conception of the mediatized worlds, which we find ourselves in today. Likewise, earlier theories of globalization foregrounded mediated and imagined dimensions (e.g., Appadurai, 1996; Beck, 2004; Castells, 2012; Rantanen, 2005) as well as cultural fusion and flows, with material aspects and complexities of ‘the everyday’ often overlooked or underplayed. One reason for this is cookie-cutter approaches to both globalization and technological change. Another is lack of empirical studies to support grand theoretical claims.

    Transnational Communicative Sociality between Mobility and Fixity: The Case of the Turkish Migrants2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns itself with the potentiality latent in online social networking sites for constituting a communicative space for politics and cultural voice in transnational contexts. The fluidity (in terms of spatial borders and participatory practices) of online fora takes political engagement and identificatory experiences to a new level where the offline and the online merge and collide, resulting in both continuity and rupture. Amongst the Turkish transnationals in Sweden, new social constellations such as Turks in Stockholm and Swedish Turks have recently emerged on Facebook as popular meeting points. Identity and politics on these sites are articulated both against and alongside of categories and politics represented by longstanding diasporic representative bodies and mainstream media, thereby constituting new spaces for communicative sociality, for clash and solidarity, and new sphericules for political deliberation. This paper will investigate mediated political discourse and articulations of transnational social imaginaries based on qualitative fieldwork.

    Transnational Media Flows: Key Concepts and Debates2012Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Globalization and media flows have been scrutinized extensively in media andcommunication studies. Compared to the totalizing discourse of globalization, the scopeof transnationalism offers a more tangible entry point for studying both the cohesiveelements brought about by virtual and material flows and the social and cultural tensionfields that arise between the varied scales of the national and the transnational.Departing from the theme of this special issue, and based upon both geopolitical andcultural considerations concerning mediation, this article aims to survey some of thematerial and symbolic implications of contemporary media flows. Theoretically, it drawsupon two tropes, geopolitics and cosmopolitanism, which provide paradigmatic tools toreflect upon technological, spatial, and cultural dimensions of flows.

    The Arab Spring As Meta-Event and Communicative Spaces2013In: Television and New Media, ISSN 1527-4764, E-ISSN 1552-8316, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 351-364Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa, immediately labeled "the Arab Spring," are best described as processes rather than outcomes. Despite being a common area of media focus due to decades-long geopolitics, the Arab Spring, as a mediatized meta-event, has led to the reemergence of the region as a discursive territory. The communicative spaces that opened up during and in the aftermath of the uprisings allowed for a multiplicity of topics to reenter public discourse across local, national, and transnational scales. In the process, seasoned debates such as religious sectarianism and democratic institutionalization gained magnitude. More specific debates such as Turkey's role as a model/antimodel added new discursive aspects to the multitopic ensemble. The purpose of this article is to reflect on the communicative and scalar dimensions in the mediation of the Arab Spring by way of taking the debates on Turkey as a case in point.

    Shifting Landscapes: : Film and Media in European Context2009Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Continuity and change are the two major trends that mark European film and media vistas today. While continuity is the result of more than a century of European film and media tradition, change is brought about by technological convergence, the evolution of globalization and commercial markets and of artistic and aesthetic norms, and the ever-expanding cultural borders of Europe. Bringing together eighteen research-based analyses on topics as diverse as Europe itself, Shifting Landscapes: Film and Media in European Context presents various accounts of filmic and televisual media, text and form, mediated politics, media policy, globalization, diasporic media, multiculturalism and more. The chapters are grouped into three main sections: Identities, Borders, Industries; Migration, Space, Transnationality; and Telling Stories: Medium, Form, Message and Beyond. Employing film studies, critical social theory and cultural studies and drawing upon technological, spatial, political economic, sociological and anthropological approaches, the authors present multidimensional and multi-faceted depictions of the historical and contemporary factors that have shaped, and continue to shape, film and media in Europe.

    Complicit surveillance, interveillance, and the question of cosmopolitanism: Toward a phenomenological understanding of mediatization2015In: New Media and Society, ISSN 1461-4448, E-ISSN 1461-7315, Vol. 17, no 9, p. 1473-1491Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The institutional and meta-processual dimensions of surveillance have been scrutinized extensively in literature. In these accounts, the subjective, individual level has often been invoked in relation to subject-object, surveillor-surveilled dualities and in terms of the kinds of subjectivity modern and late-modern institutions engender. The experiential, ontological realm of the mediatized everyday vis-a-vis surveillance remains less explored, particularly from the phenomenological perspective of the lifeworld. Academic discourses of surveillance mostly address rhetorically oriented macro-perspectives. The same diagnosis largely applies to the debates on the cosmopolitanization process. The literature of cosmopolitanism revolves around broad cultural and ethical transformations in terms of the relationship between Self and Other, individual and humanity, and the local and the universal. Our aim in this article is to conceptualize the dynamics that yield a cosmopolitan Self and an encapsulated Self under conditions of increasingly interactive and ubiquitous forms of mediation and surveillance.

    Cultural citizenship and the communicative space of mediated sexual expressivity2011In: International Journal of Media and Cultural Politics, ISSN 1740-8296, E-ISSN 2040-0918, Vol. 7, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The role of pornography in contemporary media societies constitutes one of the underresearched areas in media and communication studies. The purpose of this article is to explore the potentiality latent in the user-porn-related Internet domains, blogs and forums – as extensions of offline agency and sociality – for motivating communicative action and engagement with civic practice in various forms. In this study, we utilize an interdisciplinary approach that feeds from social, political and cultural theory and we take ‘self-pornographic pursuit as cultural citizenship’ as a paradigmatic intersection. The discussion is based on our analysis of a variety of expressive venues (some purely online, some amalgamated with the offline) over the course of our preliminary research. Of these, we refer to two Swedish examples: Bodycontact, a sexual dating site, and Dirty Diaries, a feminist film project and the adjacent website, as illustrative of the theoretical arguments presented throughout our discussion.

    Abstract [en]

    Media play a major role in framing key political issues such as climate change, and the melting of the Arctic snow and ice has become a bellwether of global climate change through the mediations of the region and its wildlife. While Arctic change has scientific significance for understanding global warming, it also plays a key role in the popular communication of global climate change and its impacts. This article addresses questions such as how the Arctic and its sea ice have become become powerful images of climate change, and what roles scientific activities, technologies, and networks play in relation to media and mediation. Drawing upon earlier research on the role of the media and framing in relation to climate change in general and upon Arctic climate change in particular, we explore how media framings are linked with various dynamics such as scientific practice and the institutional structure of the media system.

    Abstract [en]

    The seminal 1983 "Ferments in the Field" collection made limited reference to environmental issues and concerns. Considering communication media and technological artifacts as both nature and culture and, more specifically, through defining media as both infrastructural environments and content, we discuss how challenges brought about by environmental change can inform contemporary media and communication research and environmental communication. The materiality of e-waste, which has resonance for cultural, political, economic, and geographic analyses, is used as an illuminating case in point. We link the implications ensuing from the e-waste issue with the roles mediation and communication of environmental narratives play, and how they can be informed by such "medianatures," as well as geopolitical considerations.

    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.

    The reciprocal city: Performing solidarityMediating space through street art and graffiti2017In: International Communication Gazette, ISSN 1748-0485, E-ISSN 1748-0493, Vol. 79, no 6-7, p. 584-612Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, based on two case studies conducted in Stockholm and London, we discuss how graffiti and street art provide forms of expressive cosmopolitanism in reclaiming voice and reciprocity in the city. Through in-depth interviews and observations, we explore how urban artists, using their practice, foster ever-transient and contesting senses of outsidered aesthetics and communicative culture that both seek to challenge the institutionalization and hegemonic indoctrination of today's media cities and, as such, become part of the ensemble that constitute its visual geography. While there are many parallels and inter-urban synchronicity, our results indicate that locally-specific elements are prominent in each city. Both studies indicate that the solidaritarian and spatially mediating character of graffiti and street art, and not just their contents, constitutes a resource in sustaining the possibility of coproducing worldly visions in and of the cities. They both observe struggles for openness and social critique taking place across time and space.

    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.

    Media, Surveillance and Identity: Social Perspectives2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    How do individuals perceive the increasingly open-ended nature of mediated surveillance? In what ways are mediated surveillance practices interwoven with identity processes, political struggles, expression of dissent and the production of social space? One of the most significant issues in contemporary society is the complex forms and conflicting meanings surveillance takes. Media, Surveillance and Identity addresses the need for contextualized social perspectives within the study of mediated surveillance. The volume takes account of dominant power structures (such as state surveillance and commercial surveillance) and social reproduction as well as political economic considerations, counter-privacy discourses, and class and gender hegemonies. Some chapters analyse particular media types, formats or platforms (such as loyalty cards or location based services), while others account for the composite dynamics of media ensembles within particular spaces of surveillance or identity creation (such as consumerism or the domestic sphere). Through empirically grounded research, the volume seeks to advance a complex framework of research for future scrutiny as well as rethinking the very concept of surveillance. In doing so, it offers a unique contribution to contemporary debates on the social implications of mediated practices and surveillance cultures.

    The Arctic: When the ice breaks: Geopolitics, opportunity and museums2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In 2007 and again in 2012, satellite imagery showed the Arctic sea-ice reaching record lows. In the international news media, striking images of polar bears and crumbling ice chunks were joined to alarmist metaphors about the disastrous impact of global climate change. In the far north itself, however, responses to rapidly diminishing sea-ice have been quite different, as new trade routes and business opportunities open up and communities re-make their identities in ways that incorporate global and local stories and objects. This panel considers the 2007 minimum and stories and objects it created, exploring some disjunctions and intersections between far north and metropolitan narratives, projects and collections.
