    Utbildningslandskapets regionala och lokala strukturer2015In: Geografiska Notiser, ISSN 0016-724X, Vol. 73, no 4, p. 154-163Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Nyligen presenterade Universitetskanslerämbetet en rapport (2015) som visar på att det alltjämt råder stora skillnader mellan olika län och mellan olika kommuner i landet avseende ungdomars benägenhet att påbörja högskolestudier. Syftet med föreliggande artikel är därför att sätta ljuset på det svenska utbildningslandskapets regionala strukturer utifrån ett utvecklingsperspektiv,med referens till de tre ovannämnda rapporterna som belyser utbildningssituationen från 1980-och 1990-talet. Synen på kunskap och utveckling utifrån ett regionalt perspektiv är således ännu idag ett angeläget område att fokusera, även om vi kan konstatera att intresset bland ungdomarna att skaffa sig en högre utbildning relativt sett ökat. Vi kan samtidigt konstatera att de regionala skillnaderna i många avseenden ännu kvarstår. Mina empiriska exempel är hämtade från Värmland då de tidigare studier genomfördes där och därmed kan en jämförelse övertid ske. Problematiken som här belyses ärdock inte unik för Värmland utan har en relevans i många regioner i landet.

    The way to Santiago beyond Santiago. Fisterra and the pilgrimage´s post-secular meaning2016In: European Journal of Tourism Research, ISSN 1994-7658, E-ISSN 1314-0817, Vol. 12, p. 133-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is a growing demand for pilgrimage, which in turn seems to be linked to the change in content and performance that the practice of pilgrimage is undergoing. This paper examines the emergence of Fisterra as a “new” end destination for the pilgrims. The aim of this study is to shed light on and create understanding of the destination Fisterra and the meaning of the place and the role it plays for the pilgrims. Empirically, the study is partly based on statistics and official documents and partly on interviews with pilgrims at Fisterra. The study concludes that contemporary Fisterra as the end of the journey should be perceived as an effect of the post-secular trend in Europe as well as a response to the fact that the historical goal of Santiago de Compostela is increasing

    Place-based method for digitally enhanced experiences2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The fast pace of technical development within the tourism industry creates a gap between technology and the knowledge. While the technique tends to steer the development, the digitalization within the industry increases rapidly with lack of reflection of how different actors from the industry is included. The tourism industry has primarily concentrated on certain aspects of digitalization, such as marketing and e-commerce. The intention with this paper is therefore to fill an identified gap of knowledge about methods for enhancing visitors’ on site-experiences using digital media, where key actors in the local tourism industry and community are included. By launching the Geomedia approach within the research field in tourism studies, we are building a bridge between technology and people and connecting media with a place-based perspective. By using the so called Geomedia perspective, we focus on ‘who can communicate what at different places?’ What is represented at places and ‘whose’ places are represented (today and in the past)?

     

    This paper focuses on an ongoing research project, where the purpose is to develop a method for site specific digital media productions. Taking our starting point in two specific tourist sites, one nature-based site and one cultural heritage site, we use the historical geography in a coordinated innovation process. We have been drawing on knowledge from various agents such as researchers, digital design developers, the public sector, tourism business and users (visitors / locals). The Geomedia perspective has thus inspired us in developing a place-based method, which will be discussed in this paper.

    Är besöksnäringen viktig för den framtida utvecklingen?2016In: Värmländska utmaningar: Politik Ekonomi Samhälle Kultur Media / [ed] P-O Norell & Lennart Nilsson, Karlstad: Karlstad University Press, 2016, p. 385-404Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Utifrån ett regionalt perspektiv är strategier kring regional tillväxt genom exempelvis smart specialisering och satsningar på kluster centrala. I med- borgarundersökningen från 2014 lyfter vi fram de vardagsnära frågorna som är centrala för värmlänningen. I detta kapitel belyses därför jämförelsen mellan medborgarnas perspektiv på vad som är viktigt för den framtida utvecklingen med regional strategiska perspektiv på framtida utveckling och med ett specifikt fokus på besöksnäringen, ett område som nyligen tagit plats i de framtida strategierna.

    År 2014 tog Region Värmland fram en ny strategi för regionens tillväxt. Här framgår att Värmlandsstrategin är hela Värmlands strategi. Det är en plan för hur Värmland ska vara och uppfattas år 2020. Visionen för år 2020 är Värmland – ett skönare liv, ett Värmland som ska vara en hållbar, attraktiv region där människor vill bo och utvecklas och där företag vill expandera och etablera sig. Värmlandsstrategin syftar till att peka ut vad som ska göras. I jämförelse med ovanifrån perspektivet, och vad den regionala tillväxtstrategin säger om vägen till målet 2020, lyfts medborgarnas perspektiv på den framtida utvecklingen fram i SOM-undersökningen. Utifrån medborgarperspektivet i Värmland lyfts framförallt de traditionella näringarna fram och de vardagsnära frågorna. Det intressanta är att jämföra medborgarnas perspektiv med ovanifrånperspektivet och vad man konkret tar avstamp utifrån när det gäller strategin för Värmlands framtida utveckling. I detta kapitel lyfts de regionala strategiska perspektiven på Värmlands framtida utveckling i relation till medborgarnas syn på den framtida utvecklingen. En djupdykning görs i ett område som nyligen fått ta plats i de framtida strategierna, nämligen besöksnäringen. Syftet med kapitlet är att belysa värmlänningarnas uppfattning om verksamheter som är centrala för den framtida utvecklingen. Vidare är syftet att göra en djupdykning i medborgarnas syn på besöksnäringen i relation till strategiska satsningar som sker på regional och lokal nivå.

    Abstract [en]

    The fast pace of technical development within the tourism industry creates a gap between technology and the resources and knowledge of many small business owners. By launching the Geomedia approach within the research field in tourism studies, we are building a bridge between technology and people and connecting media with a place-based perspective. This also influences our method.

     

    In this paper we present a pilot study as part of an ongoing research project, where the purpose is to develop a method for site specific digital media productions. Taking our starting point in two specific tourist sites, one nature-based site and one cultural heritage site, we use the historical geography in a coordinated innovation process. We have been drawing on knowledge from various agents such as researchers, digital developers, the public sector, tourism business and users (visitors / locals). In this paper we will discuss the development of a place-based method.

    Hur uppfattar värmlänningarna Norge?2016In: Värmländska utmaningar: Politik Ekonomi Samhälle Kultur Media / [ed] P-O Norell & Lennart Nilsson, Karlstad: Karlstad University Press, 2016, p. 271-296Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Närheten till Norge skapar specifika förutsättningar i en region som Värmland. Närheten anses på regional strategisk nivå generera tillväxt, dvs skapa möjligheter. Vi har i tidigare forskning identifierat möjligheter men även utmaningar som exempelvis gränshinder som skapar svårigheter för invånare och företagare. I detta kapitel skall vi fokusera på närheten till Norge och på värmlänningarnas syn på denna närhet till broderlandet. I relation till detta analyserar vi hur medborgarna upplever sin boendemiljö, service på orten och allmänt sett hur bra de tycker att det är att bo där de bor. Vi ställer oss frågan hur nöjda medborgarna är med livet och relaterar det till landsbygdsperspektiv kontra stad. I kapitlet gör vi jämförelser mellan medborgarna i Värmland och boende i västra Värmland, det vill säga gränskommunerna Årjäng, Torsby, Eda och Arvika. Syftet med det är att jämföra de olika medborgargrupperna, alltså boende i gränsregionen kontra boende i övriga kommuner i Värmland, mot en tydlig strategi mot Norge. Frågan är om, och i så fall hur, Norge har betydelse för värmlänningarna?

    En Reko, Eko eller Schysst resa?: - En studie om hur Svenska researrangörer förhåller sig till turismens hållbarhetsfenomen2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor thesis in tourism science is to study how two Swedish travel organizers, Ving and Fritidsresor, communicate and market the concept of sustainable tourism through text. Their comprehensions and conceptions of a sustainable approach have been research, along with a comparison with previous tourism science regarding the complex concept of sustainable tourism. The apprehension of these two tourism actors, have been presented by two qualitative methods, with a clear focus on the textual communication in a discourse analysis. The material has been collected from their individual homepages online with a direction towards the companies discourse about tourism sustainability.

    Through the approach of social constructivism, the travel organizers textual language and structure have been studied. The aim was to review how the language sense created a social constructed reality. Consequently, how the companies communicated the content of sustainable tourism and their apprehensions and interpretation of it. The text analysis has been studied from a micro-and a macro level, but has been complemented by a mail interview with informers from both Ving and Fritidsresor. The qualitative interview is a complement to the companies linguistic presentation, since it involves the informers own values regarding the same phenomenon. The theoretical part of this thesis is based on theoretical science regarding the textual sender and their social influences on their communication. Furthermore, the science based concept of sustainable tourism has been presented, as well as its utilization within the tourism industry. The theoretical part also includes today’s dissemination of information and Internet as a dominating media channel.

    The main substance of this thesis, is regarding the problematic of the complex concept of sustainable tourism. A sustainable development involves the whole society, therefore also tourism – with the purpose of indicate and resist negative impacts considering three dimensions: ecology, economy and social responsibility. Both Ving and Fritidsresor have showed an active role by presenting information about sustainability, where all dimension from the science-based concept is represented. Even so, differences between the two companies created meanings of sustainable tourism have been noted, which leads to the result of complexity in both theoretic and practical use. Fritidsresor has presented a more holistic approach to sustainable tourism, with a broader perspective of the social responsibility within tourism. Ving on the other hand, has more textual importance on the company’s work for quality to consumers. The communication of both travel organizers has created a significant focus on children justice but most of all text about nature and climate. Therefore, elements of the socio-cultural dimension land up in the background. Their apprehension of tourism is based on the company’s own social construction of the concept of sustainability, which creates a relatively unbalanced holistic perspective of sustainable tourism. Furthermore, it has been established that the travel organizers different approaches to sustainable tourism, is reflecting their intention with the communication of the information from the homepage. This is mostly considering the travel organizers choice of a practical use of the concept of sustainability within their marketing. The resulted difference involves Vings choice to concretely utilize the concept, through links and interest catching text. Meanwhile, Fritidsresor have a more formal and professional communication with a minor interest of attracting presumptive clients.

    Att dras över samma kam: En kvalitativ fallstudie om hur anställda vid en organisation upplever att deras varumärke påverkas av liknande verksamheters varumärken2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Having a strong brand is of great importance in our society as there are a great number of competing operations trying to achieve success on the market. It is therefore of great value if people have a positive image of the brand. However, there are a number of aspects that may influence the image of an organization in a negative way. A scandal within an organization is one aspect that can affect the brand image, as are the employees and the culture within the organization. These different aspects do not only affect the image of its own brand, but can also affect the image people have of similar operations, a spillover-effect. On that basis, the aim of this study is to examine how it is, being an employee, to stand next to a similar organization when media is writing about them. A qualitative case study examines how employees in one specific organization for instance were affected by a scandal in a similar organization. Interviews with employees highlight how they are affected in such cases. Aspects that has been studied are how they see their own organization in relation to a spillover-effect as well as how their organizational culture is affected, how their way of talking about their own organization is affected and how they work with their brand in different situations. 

    The result shows that the employees feel that they are affected by similar operations brand, especially in relation to a scandal. It makes them upset because many people have the wrong idea about them. Some of the employees kept quiet about where they were working although they stood up for their organization because of the scandal in the similar operation. Other employees were instead dedicated to live the brand and defending the organization and to try to change people’s image of the organization. This study shows however that defending the organization as an employee by the word of mouth might not be enough when a spillover-effect is in effect. More actions would potentially be needed to prevent negative impact on the brand.

    Unsichtbare Hände: Automatismen in Medien-, Technik- und Diskursgeschichte2011Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [de]

    Im Verhältnis von Medien, Technik und Menschen gewinnt Unkontrolliertes an Terrain: ›Intelligente‹ Objekte scheinen nach eigenen Gesetzen zu handeln, im gesellschaftlichen Raum setzt sich durch, was niemand gewollt hat, Prozesse verselbstständigen sich. Der Band knüpft – durchaus kritisch – an die Geschichte einer populären Metapher an und wirft ein neues Licht auf Prozesse, die hinter dem Rücken der Subjekte nicht kalkulierbare Wirkungen haben. Mit der Perspektive der Automatismen verbunden, zeigt der Band mit Beiträgen aus dem Bereich der Kultur- und Medienwissenschaft, der Soziologie und Informatik, wie sich Strukturen jenseits bewusster Planung durch Selbststeuerung etablieren.

    Mit Automatismen zwangsläufig verbunden ist die Frage nach dem Selbst und nach den Bedingungen, die es hervorbringen. Automatismen setzen ein ›Selbst‹ einerseits voraus, andererseits ist zu fragen, wie ein ›Selbst‹ entsteht, wie es sich stabilisiert und reproduziert, und welchen Anteil hieran wiederum Automatismen haben. Auf Seiten der Technik kann das Konzept der Automatismen abgegrenzt werden gegenüber Theorien zum Automaten. Im Fokus des Bandes stehen Selbsttechnologien in einem umfassenden Sinne: kulturelle Muster der Selbstkonstitution, Prozesse der Selbststeuerung und Praktiken der Selbstführung wie auch Formen des Selbstmanagements.

    Abstract [en]

    Abstract This student thesis research teacher perspectives on the future dimension in geography education by orientating around research questions on how they motivate the space, perceptions, experiences and teaching practices in addressing the future as a theme in their teaching. The survey was implemented by a qualitative study with six teachers educating in upper secondary schools in Sweden. Prior, of mainly Swedish research, on student perspectives have revealed a negative picture consisting students concern about sustainable development and future environment issues (Nerdahl 2014; Kramming 2017; Ojala 2010; 2015; Pettersson 2014; Saunders & Jenkins 2012; Torbjörnsson & Molin 2015). There is also a study which concludes that Swedish upper secondary school students can consider future as a infrequent, absent or even inappropriate theme in education (Torbjörnsson & Molin 2015). The results from this study show that from a geography teacher perspective the future dimension in education is definitely present and associated with positivity among the interviewed teachers. They also express successful approaches to teaching a future dimension in geography which coincide with previous research. Key factors from teacher perspectives can be defined as abilities to communicate in a positive and constructive approach. Prior studies also stresses the importance of teachers abilities to address hope (Hicks 2002; Ojala 2015) and communicating negative emotions with concerned students (Saunders & Jenkins 2012; Ojala 2015). This thesis also advocate for the teaching practice of relating to the future in plural (Hicks 2002). A futures approach could be another more recognized successful teaching approach on the future dimension in geography education in Swedish upper secondary schools.

    Abstract [en]

    Tourism has become a global phenomenon and there are various reasons why people choose totravel. It is important to be able to offer various activities to attract different audiences todestinations. Event tourism is a phenomenon that has grown around the world in recent yearsand an events main role is to give the destination a chance to get a place on the map throughtourism. In the event tourism, sport events and festivals are a central part. This essay deals withevents with a focus on marketing and destination development. The purpose of this essay is toexamine how and why events are used in the marketing of a smaller town through a case study ofKarlstad. This is to see how it contributes to destination development and by examining themusic festival Putte i Parken and the sport event Rally Sweden, as examples, we want to see if theevents are used in the marketing of a smaller town and, if so, build a deeper understanding ofhow it works. We chose Karlstad because it is a smaller town and we wanted to highlight thephenomenon of event marketing in a smaller context. Why we have chosen Putte i Parken andRally Sweden is that they are two of the major events in Karlstad. We have used a qualitativemethod in the form of semi-structured interviews with relevant people within the tourism andmarketing sector. Moreover, a quantitative content analysis was used to see how a smaller towncan use events to promote itself and to compare this with the response from the interviews. Theepistemological starting point used in this essay is social constructivism with a hermeneuticapproach. The theories that are used to answer the purpose of the paper are marketing, eventsand destination development. The theory is divided into four parts, where previous research isexplained and then continues with the theories, and a link between them. The empirical datadescribe our interviews with people at the municipality of Karlstad, the Great Event of Karlstad,Putte i Parken and Rally Sweden and we interviewed seven people in total. The empirical dataalso presents the quantitative content analysis. In the analysis of the essay, we have linked thetheories to empirical data to answer the purpose and our questions. We also discussed how welooked at the similarities and differences of the empirical material and the theories, but also whatthe content analysis has brought to the essay. The conclusion brings together our work and givesa brief summary of the essay. We answer the head questions and provide suggestions for furtherresearch that emerged during our work with the essay.

    Constructive or destructive?: The effect of bloggers' criticism on journalists in Kenya2015In: The Future of Journalism 2015: Risks, Threats and Opportunities: Abstracts / [ed] Stuart Allan, Cardiff: Taylor & Francis, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Widely available media information technologies have spawned an unprecedented growth of lively debates on journalistic performance today. Indeed Web 2.0 technologies like blogs have attracted a huge participation of citizens to engage inscrutiny of content and operations of the traditional media. As a result, journalists and media organisations are now daily targets of a barrage of criticism—including insults—over poor quality of journalism. At the same time, traditional accountability instruments like the press councils are increasingly losing their significance as focus shifts to reforms on traditional media regulation as seen in the UK’s Leveson inquiry of 2011-2012. It is perhaps the reason there has been a growing body of research on participatory media regulation—greater involvement of citizens in traditional media accountability (see for instance, Fengler et al, 2014 on the EU-funded MediaAcT project). However, empirical studies on the new phenomenon—participatory media accountability—have so far been few and limited to the West. Additionally, researchers are surprisingly already celebrating the possibility of having a greater role for citizens in media accountability although among journalists this participation is still being treated with scepticism, according to Fengler et al. This study focuses on the effect of participatory media accountability through criticism by bloggers commenting on journalists’ performance in Kenya. It will involve interviews with newspaper journalists in Kenya with the aim of establishing if criticism on high-trafficblogs run by Kenyans affect their performance positively or negatively.

    Abstract [en]

    Bloggers criticizing the traditional media over poor quality journalism are being touted as potentially influential instruments of media accountability. This paper questions whether in retrospect the old order of media accountability still has relevance in an increasingly networked media environment. The aim of the paper is to suggest a framework for understanding how bloggers criticizing the traditional journalism practice can be examined in a study on media accountability in the digital era. The essay interrogates the concept of media accountability and the significance of bloggers’ criticism on journalism practice.

    Popular Criticism That Matters: Journalists’ perspectives of “quality” media critique2018In: Journalism Practice, ISSN 1751-2786, E-ISSN 1751-2794, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Popular criticism of legacy news media is argued to have the capacity to influence journalistic practice and subsequently keep journalists accountable. Scholars give prescriptions of the kinds of criticisms journalists need, if they are to be kept accountable to journalistic norms and values, but this has not been matched with perspectives of journalists. Following in-depth interviews with 24 practising journalists in Kenya and South Africa, the study found that although journalists treat fairness, facts and positiveness as “good” attributes of media critique, they are more inclined towards criticisms that show an understanding of news processes.

    The ‘media arm’ of a global court: Cosmopolitanism and the International Criminal Court’s TV series on Kenya’s trials2015In: Geomedia 2016: Spaces and mobilities in mediatized worlds, Karlstad: Karlstad university , 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a global body with a mission to deliver justice to humanity, the International Criminal Court (ICC) inspires an interesting discourse in cosmopolitanism studies. Arguably, it is the ICC that puts to effective practice moral cosmopolitanism (Pierik and Werner, 2010). Indeed, when the global court produces a TV series targeting local populations in Sub-Saharan Africa, it interestingly shifts the spotlight to an area that has taken an overtheoritical nature over the years—the relationship between the media and cosmopolitanism. Potentially illuminating empirical studies in this area have been few, Western-centric and limited to the paradigm of the reception of distant suffering. This paper empirically examines the influence of media texts on audiences. Inspired specifically by Ask the Court—a TV programme on YouTube on the trial of Kenya’s president, his deputy and a journalist over electoral violence in 2007-2008—this exploratory study questions whether the Hague-based court has a role in “cosmopolitanization” (Beck, 2006). Indeed, the questions guiding this research are: What are the manifestations of cosmopolitanism in the programme? Does the programme influence the audience to have a ‘cosmopolitan awareness’ of global justice? The results of the study are based on a textual analysis of a selection of Ask the Court episodes and a subsequent survey of a cross-section of audiences of the programme in Kenya.

    “Fact-Checking Africa”: Epistemologies, data and the expansion of journalistic discourse2018In: Digital Journalism, ISSN 2167-0811, E-ISSN 2167-082XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prominence of “fake news” today has sparked an open challenge to the legitimacy of traditional news media. As a result, a series of independent data-driven organisations are emerging to fact-check legacy news media as well as other news sources. This study examines how these actors advocate and adopt journalistic practice and the perceived impact they have on news journalism. We draw our data from in-depth interviews with 14 practitioners working in three organisations—Code for Africa, Open Up and Africa Check—that are currently leading major data and fact-checking operations in sub-Saharan Africa. Our findings show that while these non-journalistic actors are at the periphery of news media as institutions, their operations, activities and goals are at the heart of journalistic discourse. In their data strategies, they emerge as data advocates and activists seeking to reformulate fact-checking processes within news media.

    New Pan-Africanism?: Expressions of African identity on Twitter2016In: Gender & change : challenges for Africa: Nordic Africa Days 2016, Uppsala 23-24 September, Uppsala: The Nordic Africa Institute , 2016, , p. 144p. 56-57Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article will interrogate the question whether a collective identity of a new Pan-Africanism is emerging through social media in Africa. The study focuses on the use of the hashtag IfAfricaWasABar by Twitter users across the continent in July 2015. It will entail a qualitative content analysis of tweets that were accompanied by #IfAfricaWasABar to analyse the issues raised by African Twitter users as regards their identity. #IfAfricaWasABar was started by Motswana author Siyanda Mohutsiwa and was trending for several weeks in different countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The hashtag called upon Twitter users across Africa to satirize the Western media narrative of Africa as a country by coming up with hilarious lines that imagine the continent as a bar, which has interesting characters who in real life would define the continent's culture, politics and social life.

    Studies of Twitter use for expression of identity in Africa are few although there has been a marked increase of citizen participation on this social media platform (Portland Communications, 2012). Twitter has indeed turned into an interesting platform for deliberation and daily conversations among citizens. Such kinds of citizen engagement are turning out to offer an interesting forum for jokes as well as serious social and political discussion for discourses that appeal to citizens across the continent, who are both online and offline. In fact, in their recent study on the use of Twitter by Kenyans, Tully and Ekdale (2014) conclude that 'playful engagement' on Twitter is spurring significant deliberation as users "infuse developmental agendas in their comments, actions and interactions" (p.68).

    The article will argue that more than offering a platform for deliberation, Twitter as a new media technology in Africa is enabling African citizens to recreate an African identity in the global space. It will seek to revive the old debate on Pan-Africanism and its expressions on media space, which has so far been overshadowed a process of globalization. It will further trace and discuss the discourses in the nexus of Pan-Africanism, identity as well use of Twitter in Africa. The article will pose the question whether through Twitter, a "New Pan-Africanism" is emerging, where ordinary citizens rather than elites determine how Pan-Africanism should be defined and expressed on global space.

    Pan-Africanism as a laughing matter: (Funny) Expressions of African identity on Twitter2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Pan-Africanism, a concept that attempts to capture the essence of being an African, needs to be reconsidered in the age of interactive social media. In this chapter, we look at how Twitter users negotiate the question of African identity through humourous hashtag-driven conversations. We specifically interrogate the question whether a new kind of Pan-Africanism is emerging on Africa’s Twitterverse through the use of a popular hashtag in 2015, #IfAfricaWasABar. In our analysis of tweets linked to #IfAfricaWasABar, we conclude that Twitter provides temporary solidarity by engaging users in humorous exchanges about socio-cultural, political and economic issues that define the African continental condition today.
