Abstract [en]

This book introduces and develops the concept of geomedia studies as the name of a particular subfield of communication geography. Despite the accelerating societal relevance of 'geomedia' technologies for the production of various spaces, mobilities, and power-relations, and the unquestionable emergence of a vibrant research field that deals with questions pertaining to such topics, the term geomedia studies remains surprisingly unestablished. By addressing imperative questions about the implications of geomedia technologies for organizations, social groups and individuals (e.g. businesses profiting from geo-surveillance, refugees or migrants moving across national borders, or artists claiming their rights to public space) the book also aims to contribute to ongoing academic and societal debates in our increasingly mediatized world.

Abstract [en]

This editorial introduces a thematic issue on "Rethinking Media and Social Space". By critically rethinking the relationship between media and social space this issue takes initial steps towards ensuring that media studies is appropriate for a mediatized world. Contemporary societies are permeated by media that play important roles in how people maneuver and position themselves in the social world. Yet, analyses of media-related social change too often fail to engage with the complex and situated nature of power relations. This editorial highlights three enduring problems: (1) the annihilation of the socially structured and structuring role of media technologies and practices; (2) the conflation of inherent social capacities of media technologies and discourses with existing mediations of power, and (3) the reduction of social space to one predominant dimension which overshadows all other forms of social power that media technologies, discourses, and practices are part of. As a response to these problems - and in bringing together the arguments of the five articles included in the thematic issue-this editorial calls for sociologized approaches to media technologies, discourses, and practices.

Abstract [en]

The article explores how the culture of spreadable social media affects post-tourism, and, by extension, the boundaries of tourism. Post-tourism is understood as a generalized social condition that entails de-differentiation between tourism and other social realms as well as a complex set of reactions against this predominant trend. Through a case study of urban explorers the article demonstrates how spreadable media impose new layers of reflexivity and hesitation as to whether and how to share tourist representations. While spreadable media provide resources for personalized communication they also make it more difficult to uphold cultural boundaries and distinctions. Differences in handling spreadability testify to the extended role of post-tourism as a site of symbolic struggle among the aspirational middle classes.

Abstract [en]

More than any other space, cities are shaped by a plethora of competing interests andinterventions of various groups. What should a city look like? Who should have accessto particular urban places? Such questions raise continuous public debates. Since themid-1990s urban exploration has emerged as an alternative form of organized actionthat actively problematizes spatial power and control in contemporary cities. Urbanexplorers try to find, access, explore and document places that are abandoned, secretand/or located on the fringes of the city. Their practices can be seen as place-politicalin a dual sense; partly because they challenge existing regulations and norms, partlybecause they engage in the circulation of alternative images of the city. Urban explorersthus intervene in the production of space on representational as well as materiallevels. However, as the current paper shows, urban exploration is not a homogenouscommunity. Rather, it is made up by a relatively diverse set of approaches, not leastwhen it comes to attitudes towards various connective media. While certain groupssee themselves as urban entrepreneurs, ultimately as brands, and promote their urbanimageries according to the logics of spreadability, others operate in greater secrecy andtry to maintain the exclusivity and authenticity of their experiences. It is thus possibleto conceive of urban exploration as a cultural sub-field where different ethical andcultural attitudes compete, not just in terms of what urban exploration should be, butalso in relation to the symbolic construction of cities in times of extended mediatizationand commercialization. The paper begins with a preliminary assessment of thisfield, based on 12 interviews and go-alongs among urban explorers in Sweden andDenmark, which then leads to an analysis of how the appropriation of connectivemedia becomes part of the politics of urban space
