    Stakeholders’ Perspectives on Malleable Signatures in a Cloud-based eHealth Scenario2016Inngår i: Proceedings of the International Symposium on Human Aspects of Information Security & Assurance / [ed] Nathan Clarke & Steven Furnell, 2016, s. 220-230Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we discuss end user requirements that we elicited for the use of malleable signatures in a Cloud-based eHealth scenario. The concept of a malleable signature, which is a privacy enhancing cryptographic scheme that enables the redaction of personal information from signed documents while preserving the validity of the signature, might be counter- intuitive to end users as its functionality does not correspond to the one of a traditional signature scheme. A qualitative study via a series of semi-structured interviews and focus groups has been conducted to understand stakeholders’ opinions and concerns in regards to the possible applications of malleable signatures in the eHealth area, where a medical record is first digitally signed by a doctor and later redacted by the patient in the cloud. Results from this study yielded user requirements such as the need for suitable metaphors and guidelines, usable templates, and clear redaction policies.

    Metaphors of Free Labor: A Typology of Unpaid Work in the Media Sector2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Over the last decade, free labor has emerged as a key analytical tool for understanding new or semi-new forms of labor in the contemporary digital economy. This paper critiques and develops this concept, with specific reference to work in the media industries, by presenting a historically grounded typology of free labor that also highlights some of the analytical problems with the current use of the concept. Our typology presents eight metaphors of free labor based on historical instances of roles people have taken on when performing unpaid labor: those of The Slave, The Carer, The Apprentice, The Prospector, The Hobbyist, The Volunteer, The Agent and The Patsy. A key conclusion is that free labor is performed by different actors at either end of increasingly complex and temporally stretched out value chains. This should motivate, or so we argue, a more fine-grained scholarly use of the concept of free labor.

    Making secret sharing based cloud storage usable2019Inngår i: Information and Computer Security, E-ISSN 2056-4961, Vol. 27, nr 5, s. 647-667Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to develop a usable configuration management for Archistar, whichutilizes secret sharing for redundantly storing data over multiple independent storage clouds in a secure andprivacy-friendly manner. Selecting the optimal secret sharing parameters, cloud storage servers and othersettings for securely storing the secret data shares, while meeting all of end user’s requirements and otherrestrictions, is a complex task. In particular, complex trade-offs between different protection goals and legalprivacy requirements need to be made.

    Accountability Through Transparency for Cloud Customers2016Inngår i: CLOUD COMPUTING AND SERVICES SCIENCE, CLOSER 2015, Heidelberg: Springer, 2016, 1, Vol. 581, s. 38-57Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Public cloud providers process data on behalf of their customers in data centres that typically are physically remote from their users. This context creates a number of challenges related to data privacy and security, and may hinder the adoption of cloud technology. One of these challenges is how to maintain transparency of the processes and procedures while at the same time providing services that are secure and cost effective. This chapter presents results from an empirical study in which the cloud customers identified a number of transparency requirements to the adoption of cloud providers. We have compared our results with previous studies, and have found that in general, customers are in synchrony with research criteria for cloud service provider transparency, but there are also some extra pieces of information that customers are looking for. We further explain how A4Cloud tools contribute to addressing the customers’ requirements.

    How are citizen journalists telling news? The Swedish case2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous research on citizen journalism has an Anglo-Saxon bias and frequently studies specific cases that focus on conflict, crisis events or war creating a selection bias of existing and, at least modestly, successful examples. In this study, situated in Sweden, we reverse the process and examine how actual communities are served by digital citizen community journalism in an everyday context. The study has a particular focus on how events are portrayed in terms of news topics dimensions, framing, presentation style, geographical focus and the authorship of news items. Preliminary findings indicate that the citizen journalists’ only present one perspective, rarely refers to policy plans or talks to the actors involved and provide individual and episodic news frames. Their focus is mostly on the local level and they have embraced the impersonal and unemotional presentation style from mainstream news. Half of the news items are being written by citizens while representatives from organisations or politicians author a quarter of them.   All in all, citizen journalism in general falls short from both traditional journalistic standards and many scholarly claims of being alternative.

    Att läsa med förståelse: En kvantitativ studie om undervisning i läsförståelse årskurs 1–32018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med min studie är att undersöka hur lärare i åk 1–3 beskriver att de arbetar för att utveckla elevernas läsförståelse. I denna kvantitativa studie har hundra lärare som undervisar i åk 1–3 runt om i Sverige fått svara på en webbenkät. För kunna besvara mina frågeställningar har jag även tagit del av tidigare forskning och litteratur som behandlar ämnet. Studien innehåller därmed en genomgång av några undervisningsmodeller för läsförståelse, lärarrollens betydelse samt en sammanfattning om den senaste PIRLS-rapporten från 2016 och den nationella komptenssatsningen Läslyftet.

    Det framkommer i resultatet att lärarna tycks luta sig mot kända undervisningsmodeller inom läsförståelse, dels som stöd i hur undervisningen ska gå till och dels vad den ska innehålla. En undervisningsmodell innehåller ett antal läsförståelsestrategier som eleverna ska kunna använda vid läsning. Det är vanligt att läraren modellerar läsförståelsestrategier för sina elever. Samtidigt visar resultatet att det också finns andra aktiviteter i undervisningen som läraren använder sig för att stimulera läsutvecklingen t.ex. högläsning. Lärarna anser att det är viktigt att börja med läsförståelseundervisning redan i årskurs 1. Målet är att lyckas att få elever som läser med god förståelse.

    Digitalization and tabloidization: A longitudinal study of news topics in tabloid, quality and local newspaper websites in U.K. and Sweden2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Although considerable efforts have been pursued in studying online news no studies so far have investigated how the actual news content is affected by digitalization in general, if at all, or compared different media traditions. Instead, changes in content are assumed or illustrated anecdotally rather than systematically assessed. This empirical study, covering Swedish and UK news sites with a tabloid, quality morning, and local/regional background between 2002-2012, shows that there is a tabloidization effect in general but that it is stronger in tabloids and in Sweden compared to the UK. Further, this tabloidization can be more precisely described as a lifestylization and de-politization process as it is in these areas where the biggest growth and decline are. In addition, the study reveals that it is the slower news that increases most suggesting that the immediate character of online news is mediated by production conditions.

    Getting softer or harder?: A longitudinal study of news topics in tabloid, quality and local newspaper websites in U.K. and Sweden.2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Scholars have been studying online journalism for well over fifteen years theorizing how this new environment affects news. A reoccurring argument is that a combination of real time tracking of the audience behavior in conjunction with a lack of viable business models fosters a journalistic culture with increasing sensational and shallow news. In effect, leading to a lesser-informed citizenry and a weaker democracy. Although considerable efforts have been pursued in studying online news no studies so far have investigated how the actual news content is affected in general, if at all, or compared different media traditions. Instead, changes in content are assumed or illustrated anecdotally rather than systematically assessed. This study, covering Swedish and UK media from 2002-2012, shows that there is a tabloidization effect in general but that it varies across publishing contexts and reveals some unexpected results.

    Transparency and credibility: An experimental study2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Transparency has been proposed to both change the way journalism is being produced and increase its credibility. However, little research has been conducted to assess the connection between transparency and credibility. This study utilizes an experimental setting (N=1320) to measure what impact transparency have on source and message credibility from the user perspective. The results reveals an almost absence of any transparency effect on both source and message credibility although some small significant effects could be observed primarily regarding internal hyperlinks, comments and contextual information. Although further research is desperately needed in this area the study suggest that transparency does not affect the credibility of journalism in the eyes of the contemporary audience and thus have limited appeal as a new norm in journalism.

    Transparency has been proposed to both change the way journalism is being produced and increase its credibility. However, little research has been conducted to assess the connection between transparency and credibility. This study utilizes an experimental setting with, in total, 1320 respondents to measure what impact transparency have on source and message credibility from the user perspective. The results reveal an almost absence of any transparency effect on both source and message credibility although some small significant effects could be observed primarily regarding internal hyperlinks, comments and contextual information. Although further research is needed in this area the study suggest that transparency does not affect the credibility of journalism in the eyes of the contemporary audience and thus have limited appeal as a new norm in journalism.

    Hyperlinking practices in Swedish online news 2006-2012,2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Although hyperlinks is essential both in the Internet architecture and pointing out pertinent material in an ocean of information abundance remarkably little research have been committed to this area. Furthermore, few studies have been conducted scrutinizing the long-term impact of communication technology on journalism and journalistic practices. The purpose of this study is to contribute to the research on one specific area of online journalism – the practice of hyperlinking. The study utilizes a longitudinal content analysis of hyperlinking practices in Swedish online news from 2006 to 2012 that allows for comparison if and to what extent publishing tradition and ownership shapes journalistic practice. Five hypotheses are posed and three research questions are asked, all relating to how the news sites make use of hyperlinks, and to what extent. The findings show an erratic pattern in the use of hyperlinks as well for internal as external, and between publishing traditions. The general conclusion is that hyperlinks are not an important aspect of online journalism practice.

    Hyperlinking practices in Swedish online news 2007-20132014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Hyperlinks are considered vital to both Internet and digital journalism. This study utilizes a longitudinal content analysis of hyperlinking practices in Swedish online news from 2007 to 2013 to see how hyperlinking evolves over time. It also compares if and to what extent publishing tradition shapes journalistic practice. The findings primarily shows that the over all impact of hyperlinks remain rather unchanged over time but that internal links, while still being most common, decrease in relative importance while external links increase. The general conclusion is that hyperlinks are not an important aspect of online journalism practice.

    OMNIBUS NEWS: Engagement or bussed?2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    During the summer of 2013 the municipal public bus system, Karlstadbuss, installed television sets (BUSS-TV) on all city buses. These TV sets are airing user-generated content, and traffic information, weather forecasts as well as news from the hybrid commercial/public service broadcaster TV4. This paper addresses the phenomenon from the theoretical intersection of communication geography and journalism studies. This means understanding the city-buses, at once mobile and semi-public spaces, as decorated with a new “communicative texture” that is renegotiating the time-space nexus traditionally tied to news consumption. Furthermore, it potentially implies that a basic news diet become more or less dispersed amongst commuters across the city, and across previous class-demarcations that would engender divergent news diets. This constitutes a potential challenge to the notion of the fragmented news audience and related worries over the increased number of “news avoiders”. From previous research we know that news consumption, even accidental, is linked with political and civic engagement. In an era where media consumption is increasingly fragmented or even avoided, the buss-news reinstalls the almost inescapable news of the 1970’s albeit in a highly situated and limited context. Nevertheless, this new space of ‘news on the move’ is yet to be explored theoretically and empirically. Thus, we ask about the role of Karlstadbuss as a carrier of omnibus news in the media ecology. The paper uses data derived from representative surveys (Värmlands-SOM) conducted before (2010) and after (2014) the introduction of BUSS-TV to study the impact of travelling with the city-buses on political interest and civic engagement as well as general news interest and consumption.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to examine educational aid´s perceptions of social inclusion in the compulsory school for pupils with learning disabilities in training school classes. The chosen method of this study is a qualitive research approach. Five educational aid´s currently working with pupils with intellectual disabilities in the compulsory school for pupils with learning disabilities have been interviewed. A relational and categorical models of special education has been used to analyze the interviews and a comparison between the relational, categorical approach, the thoughts of the educational aids and the regulatory documents from the Swedish National Agency for Education is taking place in the study.

    The result of the study shows that most of the educational aid´s in the study thinks that they can both support and obstruct social inclusion for pupils with learning disabilities. The study also shows that pedagogical guidance and discussions in the work crew about social inclusion are important to promote social inclusion. The educational aid´s believe that the pupils have little interest in participate in social interaction with other pupils.

    Furthermore the paraprofessionals believe that the teachers should have a comprehensive view over the pupils and their school day and that the educational aid´s thinks that they have a closer relation with the pupils because they spend more time with them than the teachers do. The informants indicated that learning environments, the ability to back away, and cooperation within the teaching team are important factors to promote social inclusion.

    HCI patterns for cryptographically equipped cloud services2018Inngår i: Human-Computer Interaction. Theories, Methods, and Human Issues / [ed] Masaaki Kurosu, Springer, 2018, s. 567-586Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent cryptographic research has devised several new algorithms and protocols with a potential of mitigating several of the most ardent security and privacy threats, existing in currently available public cloud services. Nevertheless, such cryptographic schemes often exhibit counterintuitive functionality to end users, or they work differently to other already established traditional schemes with which users are already familiar. A practical solution to address these problems involves a human centered design approach, deriving Human Computer Interaction (HCI) requirements from consultations and extensive testing with experts, prospective end users, and other stakeholders. The European Horizon 2020 project PRISMACLOUD “Privacy and Security Maintaining Services for the Cloud” uses such an approach and provides HCI patterns as part of its proper cloud service development methodology CryptSDLC to communicate HCI requirements to cloud service designers and user interface implementers. In this article, we present several new cryptographic cloud services, e.g. for redacting digitally signed data, and for redundant storage and sharing of confidential data in a public cloud scenario, together with three example HCI patterns for specific interactions of end users with these services. We show how these patterns were elaborated and validated in practice to prove the suitability for their intended purpose. To summarize, we give an account on our practical experience during the actual prototype development and implementation and show how they constitute an essential element of the CryptSDLC development methodology.

    “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace”: Activist Practices in an Era of Mediatized Surveillance2017Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the defining features of contemporary zeitgeist is that we live in an era of mediatization – a metaprocess, through (and by) which all everyday relations increasingly depend on networked media technologies and online communication channels.

    Due to rapid developments in digital electronics, all these Internet- or mobile-enabled platforms, and devices, are prone to the processes of quantification and datafication, and as such, surveillance is a principal dimension that lies at the core of mediatization.

    Through five peer-reviewed academic articles and the cover text, this dissertation provides a multi-faceted analysis of the complex relationships – built by Azerbaijan’s and Turkey’s state intelligence, security and law enforcement agencies with a number of local, and global, private information, entertainment and telecommunications companies. The articles are focused on different cases: the complete dispersion of commercial social media based oppositional activists in Azerbaijan, and the arrests of Anonymous led hacktivists in Turkey, both happening in 2011; and, the mass mobilization of millions of Turkish citizens during the Gezi Park protests of 2013. The current compilation puts forth in-depth accounts and scrutiny of how various social movements (in general), and individual activists (in particular), are affected by an amalgamation of public, political; and, private, economic, surveillance practices and seeks to illuminate the abusive extents of this transformation – vis-à-vis the changing media and communication environment – by way of using mediatization as an analytical tool.

    Overall, this dissertation contributes a nuanced understanding of the complex interplay between the increasingly mediatized natures of activism and surveillance in semi-authoritarian states. The conclusions have relevance and significance – in considering both similar country contexts and on a global scale – in the light of contemporary technological and political transformations.

    Alternative Media, Video Activism and the Proliferation of Unintentional Surveillance in Turkey2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the conduct of video activism in Turkey through a case study on now dispersed Karahaber, an Ankara-based video activist collective formed in 2005 - through a question of whether the group’s videos provided an empowerment for the socially excluded strata of Turkish society or did they further facilitate the spectacle/surveillance culture? The main source of information for the article comes from the semi-structured in-depth interviews conducted with eight core Karahaber members in Istanbul and Ankara. The secondary source is comprised by the 175 Karahaber videos, published on collective’s website http://www.karahaber.org. Relying on the theoretical framework structured by the works of Guy Debord, David Lyon and Thomas Mathiesen, article claims that Karahaber’s practices of video activism created an enforcement of synoptic urge through the facilitation of voyeuristic tendencies of protesters, thus reinforcing the effect of unintentional surveillance.

    Applying Critical Media Sociology: Mapping the Intersections of Media and Communication Research with Surveillance Studies2015Inngår i: Differences, Inequalities and Sociological Imagination: Abstract Book, Prague: Institute of Sociology CAS , 2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The revelations of otherwise confidential intelligence files by Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden and journalistic organization WikiLeaks showed once more that we live in an era of intensified and all-encompassing communications surveillance, conducted by secret services, intelligence agencies and private companies. This is an era of rapid transformations in the sphere of media and communication, which, according to Robert W. McChesney, “veers toward a classic definition of fascism” (McChesney 2013, 171). Thus it becomes urgent that better sociological conceptualizations of the stance of media and communication as an academic field within these metamorphoses is conducted - together with the explorations of what comprises the fast growing field of surveillance studies.

    Within such scope this presentation attempts to sociologically map the academic branch of surveillance studies from the perspective of the scholarly field of media and communication, and to seek out boundaries, limitations, strengths, and weaknesses of the currently conducted research. To be able to properly map out the field and mark important points within the landscape, the Journal of Surveillance & Society, a premier interdisciplinary journal in the field of surveillance, is chosen as a point of departure. Analysis of reiterating topics within the surveillance studies field is conducted based on 296 articles from 40 issues published between 2002 and 2013. While providing the analysis of the frequent topics and thus mapping out the field, the article also engages in the argumentative discussion of the missing points and aspects believed to be in the need of fortification and wider coverage.

    Applying ICT for Development Perspective in Sweden: Renewed Look at Developed Countries from the Lens of ICT4D2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Most of the current research conducted within the scope of information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D) looks at ICTs and more general media usage in non-European, developing country contexts and frequently employs technologically deterministic perspectives. There are very few studies applying the ICT4D perspectives within the Western societies and by focusing solely on developing countries scholars often neglect the fact that the demographics, social structure and context of developed countries have dramatically changed during the course of last few decades. Yet, as Ngomba (2013) points out, the impacts and implications of the recent financial and economic crises in Europe and USA, as well as resulting rigorous austerity policies constitute significant ‘shocks’ that should shape the future of academic and popular research about the role communication technologies play within the social change processes.

     

    This paper is focused on the ongoing doctoral research at Karlstad University, which in line with Morley (2009)’s call for de-Westernized, non-media centric and materialist approaches to media studies, is focused on transnational migrant communities living in Sweden, their daily media usage, and related individual development and communal empowerment changes. Paper argues that only through the analysis of empirical data focused on how people actually use media and ICTs within the context of everyday life, of “how media do, and do not, figure in people's lives" (Couldry, 2006, p. 177), better and more pinpointed strategies for welfare development, urban poverty reduction and elimination of growing social inequalities can be elaborated on, thus leading to sustainable future.

    Azerbaijani Mediatized Activism vs. Mediatized Surveillance: Online Resistance and Reproduction of the State Rule2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The turbulent Arab Spring, blustering across the Middle East between the years 2011 and 2012, has inspired various sorts of new insurgent oppositional movements around the world. Azerbaijan’s online opposition, enthused by the initial success of revolutions in North Africa and organized almost exclusively on social networking sites, was not an exception within this scope. As the socio-political transformation of primarily Muslim geographies of the region was gaining pace, it was not long before that Azerbaijani activists, impressed by the possibilities purportedly brought about by social media’s online networking affordances, started to organize their resistance mainly on mediated social networks.

    The response of the Azerbaijani government to the events, where hundreds of activists took to the streets of Baku to protest against corruption and demand respect for human rights was very harsh. State officials immediately halted all demonstration authorizations, and police officers quickly, and quite often violently, dispersed unauthorized ones. Thus, with all the demonstrations forcefully dismantled, and a number of protesters taken into custody or arrested, the Azerbaijani government was able to completely liquidate these protests in a short period of time,.

    The reproduction of the state rule was achieved through a series of digital interventions into the Azerbaijani Internet and mobile telecom infrastructures, with close collaboration of and intensive help received from a range of global companies specializing in various surveillance hardware, software and service provision.

    Focusing on the case of Azerbaijan, this presentation details and discusses interlinked aspects of increased mediatization of activism on the one hand, and state backlash on the other – thus aiming to contribute to an empirically based, nuanced conception of the shortcomings of mediatized activism today.

    Azerbaijani Women, Online Mediatized Activism and Offline Mass Mobilization2016Inngår i: Social Sciences, ISSN 2076-0760, E-ISSN 2076-0760, Vol. 5, nr 4, s. 1-17, artikkel-id 60Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite its post-Soviet history, Azerbaijan is an under-investigated country in academic research—compared with the other former constituencies, such as the Baltic countries or Russia, of the USSR—and gender questions of the contemporary Azerbaijani society are even less touched on. Within the current context of the post-“Arab Spring” era of mediatized connectivity and collective political engagement, this article looks into and analyzes how Azerbaijani women participate in different online and offline social and political movements, and if (and how) they are impeded by the increased state authoritarianism in Azerbaijan. Using data, obtained from online information resources, yearly reports of human rights organizations, focus group discussions, and interviews, the study detects four major activist constellations within the Azerbaijani field of gendered politics. Based on the analysis of conditions of detected groups, the article claims that flash mobs, a tactic employed mainly by liberal activists, emerge as the promising way in overcoming the normative nature of Azerbaijani patriarchal society, thus providing an opportunity for normalization and internalization of the feeling of being on the street and acting in concert with others—the practices which might lead towards an increasing participation of (especially young) women in the political processes of the country.

    Between Art and Politics: Reflections on Video Activism of Turkish Video Collective Karahaber2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    From its early introduction in mid60s, video camera has been an important tool of self-representation, political activism and alternative media production in the hands of numerous individuals, groups and movements all around the world. Whereas in the early years of the 'video age', video art and video activism was inseparable from each other, with the following decades the two became associated with quite separated spheres of daily life, video art becoming the common practice of high-culture and high-end museums and art centers, and video activism moving more into the marginal sectors and stratas of society, focusing more on oppressed and underrepresented people. However, as video becomes a more common tool of resistance in the hands of political movements of the developing countries, these two separated spheres, art and politics with the means of video, are now once more becoming more connected with each other. This paper will focus on practices of video, conducted by the Turkish video collective Karahaber, and how its videos function as an interconnected interplay of video art and video activism.

    Can alternative media serve as contribution into 'spectacle'?: Case study on Turkish video activist collective Karahaber2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction of video device in mid-1960s in the form of Sony Corporation's Portapak sparkled new kind of political activism and new type of community media: video activism. Probably the most technologically dependent form of activism, video activism created whole new way of expressing otherwise unheard voices through self-representation of video and "own" media. However this innovative activism also came at high cost as early video activist experimentations contributed a great deal to the formation of 'Reality TV', emotional monster of modern television. Basing itself on the theoretical perspective formed by Guy Debord, and his notion of 'spectacle', this presentation will try to find an answer for the question of whether, unintentionally, alternative media and video activism, as a particular form, may serve as a contribution into modern spectacle. This quest is important in the sense of trying to prevent mistakes of early times and instead establishing video activism as a true form of empowering and emancipatory practice. Case study conducted with Turkish video activist collective Karahaber will serve as the main source of this presentation. The main source of information was provided by interviews with eight core members of Karahaber in Istanbul and Ankara, which were conducted in July to November 2009. The secondary source of information was obtained through a content analysis of 175 videos of Karahaber, published on its website http://www.karahaber.org. Content analysis of video works and interviews with group members were mostly analyzed together in order to provide better panorama and understanding of the practices of video activism as conducted by Karahaber members.

    Challenging Universality of Music: Critical reflections and call for cross-cultural perception studies2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This theoretical paper is an attempt of trying to look at universal aspects of music, especially as outlined by Philip Tagg, and engaging into articulation on how music can universally be pleasurable for people who are total strangers to its origins and roots. Main argument of the paper, driving its conclusions from analysis of historical and recent studies concentrating on bio-emotional perception of psychophysical dimensions of musical cues within the different tonal systems, is that only the emotional part of the music, only the hidden emotions of joy and sorrow, unconsciously decoded by audience members listening to it, are responsible for this fascination and nothing else can be counted in when trying to understand the universality of music and musical codes. Paper focuses on critique of semantic interpretations of music and instead calls for shifting focus of attention on biological perception of music by human brain and nervous system. Paper ends with a call for a more crosscultural research on emotional perception and interpretation of music, both Western and non-Western.

    Copyleft Production of Music for Social Change: Exploring the Alternatives2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Political music has always been one of the most important and impact generating weapons inside the arsenal of available tools for promotion of social change within the struggle for more just and egalitarian society - with an enormous potential for political mobilization of otherwise contesting middle classes. Yet, the effort of the small-scale, politically conscious and critically oriented music bands to establish themselves as the independent actors within the contemporary reality of commercialized musical scene dominated by transnational media moguls most often becomes a struggle by itself. The notion of copyleft - a creative attempt to juxtapose copyright and disrupt power structures built around it, thus enabling the full retransformation of the existing musical communication order - becomes an important topic to consider within this scope.

    This presentation focuses on the issues related with the copyleft music production in Turkey through a case study on Bandista, radical music collective with strong political and oppositional stance, which became immensely popular in Turkish political music scenery after releasing its debut album De Te Fabula Narratur online in 2009 for free under the copyleft scheme and in no time formed itself as the leading oppositional music band in Turkey.

    Presentation analyzes the copyleft structure devised by Bandista, following the classical Marxist differentiation of use-value and exchange-value of commodities, and argues that the Bandista's copyleft experience emerges as an essential and in many ways revolutionary innovation tool for new music bands, offering an important empowerment strategy in the form of a two-fold liberation tactic.

    Corporate Social Media: A Surveilled Public Sphere?2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is not uncommon that the corporate social media platforms are treated more and more as the new public sphere(s) of mediatized political communication. Yet, as Jillian C. York rightfully asks, why do we insist on assigning for-profit social networking media the role of the public space, when in reality “online social spaces standing in for the public sphere are private ones, owned by billionaires and shareholders”?

    Starting from this specific question, and following towards more general issue of the digital democracy, this presentation engages into the dissection of relationship between commercial social media and the public sphere debate from the three perspectives: a) perspective of technologies used within the development of these platforms; b) perspective of users of these media; and c) perspective of social media companies. Looking at the original Habermasian interpretation of the public sphere; and connecting it with Christian Fuchs’ politico-economical critiques this presentation thus explores the limits of treatment of corporate social networking platforms as working public sphere - as especially evident in Pew Research Center’s November 2013 research report “News Use across Social Media Platforms” which findings state that more than half of commercial social networking media users obtain their daily news only through these electronic platforms - with the reddit, Twitter and Facebook users leading this trend in an uncompetitive manner.

    Taking into consideration the economic model of corporate social media, based on constant surveillance of users and the big data analysis of their activities for the purposes of targeted advertising, presentation aims to further on contribute and tackle into the re-questioning and conceptualizing of the dynamics that (might or might not) “yield a cosmopolitan Self and an encapsulated Self” - following 2014 article of Christensen and Jansson.

    Cultural Artefacts and Sustainable Activism within the Context of Gezi Park Protests in Turkey2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this presentation is to look at the Gezi Park protests which happened in Turkey during the summer of 2013, and to conduct audio-visual content analysis in relation to the cultural productions of the protest activists during the pre- and after-math of the events.

    Starting with a small group of environmentalists who were protesting against the demolition of Gezi Park - a small park located in Taksim Square area of Istanbul - events grew into the series of huge and unprecedented protests, swapping the whole country in a matter of days, where approximately 2.5 million people argued to have participated. Yet, protests quickly lost their momentum and only within the few months completely disappeared.

    Despite their relatively quick fading away the Gezi Park protests contributed a great deal into the social psyche of Turkish society – and were limitedly channeled into the political struggle of post-Gezi platforms such as Taksim Solidarity and United June Movement. One of the main reasons for such lasting effect was the enormous cultural and aesthetical production of various audio-visual artefacts during and after the events, where some of them are still ‘alive’ despite the passing two years: like graffiti, which are still visible on some of the walls, especially in big cities such as Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir; or protest songs produced during the events, which are still popular and can be heard in some bars and cafes.

    In this sense this presentation, by focusing on the Gezi Park protests, also addresses whether the aesthetical and cultural production and circulation of the social movement (or protest) is suitable to contribute into the sustainability of that social movement.

    De te fabula narratur: Methodological concerns on studying immigrants in an era of mediatization2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is an humble attempt of articulating on methodological framework for conducting research on immigrants living in Western countries. Paper calls for implementation of three main goals while engaging in such an attempt of looking on media and communication usages of immigrant communities: de-Westernized, non-media centric and materialist approaches. In order to achieve better overall panorama and decent picture of social transformations, paper calls for contracting different analysis techniques: cultural studies for micro, that is an individual level and political economy for macro, that is the level of society. As a combination factor for mezzo level paper suggests usage of Actor-Network Theory, which will provide necessary arsenal of tools while tracing associations and building necessary bridge between individual immigrant and the society she resides within.

    ‘Fortress Europe’ and Peripheries: Surveillance of Migrants, Readmission Agreements, and FRONTEX2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The borders of European Union are constantly transforming, yet most of the time continuing to coincide with the borders of the “Schengen agreement … which is the new Berlin wall, separating the new Roman empire from the threatening hordes of ‘Barbarians’” (Momcilovic, 2003, 445). Today the European border is “multiplying both within and without the territories of the EU” (Casas et al., 2011, 74) through the number of agreements on readmission, cooperation and securitization signed by EU member states and countries within its periphery. It is through these agreements that now Europe can exercise and claim hegemony over the maritime borders of North Africa and Middle East - turning the whole Mediterranean Sea into a Mare Nostrum, Roman Empire’s ambitious goal of defining the Mediterranean as an inner sea within its imperial contours.

    Within this scope the main focus of this presentation is on the most recent readmission agreement signed by European Union and Turkey in late 2013 - although expanding over this protocol article as well explores the sprawling power of EU over the Mediterranean Sea countries and the extent this hegemonic widening of domination effects the irregular migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who often risk their lives desperately trying to reach the southern and eastern shores of European continent. The agreement functions as a springboard to explore conceptual issues of (out-sourced) sovereignty, border externalization and ex-territorial forms of power in the control of migration and creation of transnational mobility regimes by the European Union and its member states.

    Gender, Activism and Surveillance: Azerbaijani Women Protesters Online and Offline2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The so-called “Arab Spring” has caused all kinds of new insurgent oppositional movements all around the world to emerge. Azerbaijani online opposition, inspired by the ‘success’ of revolutions in Middle East and organized mostly on social media was not an exception within this scope. However, Azerbaijan is also one of the best examples to clearly show that the technically savvy state and its surveillative potentials are constantly developing themselves as well. Mainly based on Evgeny Morozov’s concept of the net delusion this presentation looks at Azerbaijan and its new media based oppositional movements and aims to show how these efforts are crushed down by surveillative state apparatus.

    The presentation looks at the online practices of oppositional politics from the perspective of gender dynamics and conducts gender-based categorization of Internet based protesters, with the political, economic and social classifications. Such a categorization of women activists, done together with the historical overview of networked practices of offline political struggle, helps to determine how different strata of society are affected by surveillative apparatuses of the state.

    Presentation insists that only Internet and social media based politics are not enough, as the gender perspective of the topic clearly shows – since women protesters are the most affected ones by oppressive politics of the state.

    Gendered Surveillance and Media Usage in Post-Soviet Space: The Case of Azerbaijan2015Inngår i: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 8, nr 1-2, s. 44-48Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article is an attempt to explore the limits of gendered surveillance in Azerbaijan – that is, how and to what extent female activists and women journalists are monitored and affected by the surveillative apparatuses of the state, both online and offline. The article also very briefly examines the gender dimension of Azerbaijani political activism and protest practices. The questions of how gender stereotypes, together with the more general problem of the digital gender gap, are being used by the state authorities to control the public opinion are also addressed.

    Immersive Televisual Environments: Spectatorship, Stereoscopic Vision and the Failure of 3DTV2015Inngår i: View : Journal of European Television History and Culture, E-ISSN 2213-0969, Vol. 4, nr 7, s. 99-109Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on one of the most ground-breaking technological attempts to create a novel immersive media environment for a heightened televisual user experience: 3DTV, a Network of Excellence project that was funded by the European Commission 6th Framework Information Society Technologies Programme. Based on the theoretical framework mainly outlined in the works of Jonathan Crary and Brian Winston, and on empirical data obtained from the author’s laboratory visit notes and discussions with 3DTVpractitioners, this article explores the claimed novelty of 3DTV through a focus on the history of stereoscopic vision and addresses the inconsistency between the research project’s expected and actual results.

    Moving forward the concept: Critical reflections on universality of music perception2014Inngår i: On the move/I Rörelse: ACSIS conference 11-13 June 2013 Norrköping, Sweden 2013/ACSIS kulturforskningskonferens 11-13 juni Norrköping, Sverige 2013 / [ed] Johanna Dahlin, Tove Andersson, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2014, s. 97-108Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This theoretical paper is an attempt of trying to look at universal aspects of music, especially as outlined by Philip Tagg, and engaging into articulation on how music can universally be pleasurable for people who are total strangers to its origins and roots. Main argument of the paper, driving its conclusions from analysis of historical and recent studies concentrating on bio-emotional perception of psychophysical dimensions of musical cues within the different tonal systems, is that only the emotional part of the music, only the hidden emotions of joy and sorrow, unconsciously decoded by audience members listening to it, are responsible for this fascination and nothing else can be counted in when trying to understand the universality of music and musical codes. Paper focuses on critique of semantic interpretations of music and instead calls for moving the focus of scholar attention towards biological perception of music by human brain and nervous system. Paper ends with a call for a more cross-cultural research on emotional perception and interpretation of music, both Western and non-Western.

    Reappropriating the Means of Production and Distribution: DIY, Copyleft and 'Alternative' Music2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to reduce effects of various crises and economic breakdowns, maximize profits and to effectively control transformative processes taking place especially in developing countries, global capitalism implements more widespread and deepened versions of copyright legislatures, patent laws and acts related with trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPS). According to Jan Nederveen Pieterse such attempts map out the true frontier of global change, a true borderline where we can detect "major corporations, governments in the global north and international institutions on one side, and most developing countries on the other" (Pieterse 2010: 180).

    Even if the notion of 'copyleft', a creative attempt to juxtapose copyright and thus disrupt power structures built around it, has been around for few decades now, applications of the idea in music industry is a relatively new phenomenon, and much newer one within the socio-economical context of developing countries. Within this vein this presentation focuses on issues related with 'copyleft' music production in Turkey through a case study on Bandista, radical music collective with strong political and oppositional stance formed in 2006 in Istanbul. Describing its musical performances as "situationist experiment of rage and rapture" Bandista became immensely popular in Turkish political music scenery after releasing its debut album De Te Fabula Narratur in 2009 under the 'copyleft' scheme with the additional motto "It is a present. Copy. Distribute" and in no time formed itself as the leading oppositional music band in Turkey which has a long and vivid history of politicized bands and musicians.

    The main sources of information for the article are the interview conducted with Bandista members, as well as reportages about the band appearing in various media. Article tries to look at the issue of 'copyleft' from theoretical perspective outlined by Philip Auslander, with the notion of 'music as performance' in mind, following the classical Marxist differentiation of use-value and exchange-value of commodities, musical products in this case, and argues that 'copyleft' politics emerge as an essential and in many ways revolutionary innovation tool for new music bands, which seek to form themselves as independent actors within the music scene. Even if the structure devised by Bandista is not an employment of classical 'copyleft' scheme, where free and open-source software is put on the Internet, left to be (re)used, (re)programmed and (re)developed by 'others out there', it is an important empowerment strategy, since what Bandista's experience offer is a two-fold liberation tactic, where the first step is the re-appropriation of means of production, that is by engaging in DIY processes, by learning the sound technologies and their engineering, recording and producing the music of one's own; and later on re-appropriation of means of distribution, that is the creative usage of internet websites and portals to distribute produced music for free under the 'copyleft' scheme; where implementation of this tactic culminates in formation of truly organic community of engaged concert participators instead of alienated audiences - thus the full retransformation of the existing musical communication order.

    'State' strikes back: Forgotten actor as an agent of intervention into online public sphere2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The turbulent 'Arab Spring' happening during the course of the last year has caused all kinds of new insurgent oppositional movements all around the world to emerge. Turkish and Azerbaijani online opposition, inspired by the 'success' of revolutions in Middle East and organized mostly on social networking sites, thus adding more 'sense' to democratization effect of Internet, is not an exception within this scope. However, both Turkey and Azerbaijan are also best examples to clearly show that technically savvy state and its surveillative potential is also constantly developing itself.

    Based on Evgeny Morozov's concept of net delusion, that is after starting with "flawed set of assumptions (cyber-utopianism)" acting on them using "flawed, even crippled, methodology (Internet-centrism)" (2011, p. xvii), this paper looks at Azerbaijan, one of the richest Post-Soviet states, and Turkey, one of the biggest and most powerful developing countries of the region determined to join European Union, and their new-media based oppositional movements, aiming to show how these efforts are crushed down by technologically developed advanced surveillative state apparatus. In the case of Turkey the main focus will be on the process of OperationTurkey, famous hacker collective Anonymous' hacking attempts, announced after Turkey revealed its intention to implement all encompassing online filter, interpreted by many as latent censorship act. However, after only few days of successful hacks, the whole group of hackers active within Turkish cyberspace were arrested. Response time of state was even faster in the case of Azerbaijan, where all oppositional protesters, calling through Facebook posts and Twitter tweets to turn Azadlig Square into "Baku's Tahrir", were arrested only in the course of few hours with charges of selling illegal substances.

    Main discussion point developed on such 'failures' is in line with analysis of David Morley, that media and communication studies as academic field is heavily suffering from "drastically foreshortened historical perspective" (2007, p. 2), and much emphasis needs to be given to longer historicity of construction of technologies of everyday, how these technologies willingly or by force were introduced and entered into our lives, and how their symbolic dimensions have been largely neglected in previous studies, that is to engage into destruction of cyber-myths, attempts already tried to be done to some extent by studies such as Marvin, 1988; Standage, 1998; Winston, 1998 and Mosco, 2004. Paper insists that only-Internet based politics is not enough, and street-based political action have to be put back into existence for fully democratic development. Trying to further develop Maria Bakardjieva's concept of subactivism, that is "small-scale, often individual decisions and actions that have either a political or ethical frame of reference (or both) and remain submerged in everyday life" (2010, p. 134), paper argues that instead of expecting 'revolution' emerging from Internet, any oppositional movement within authoritative countries and regimes firstly needs to redevelop the aspects of civil society, essential to involve into protest otherwise contesting middle classes.
