    Intersemiotic translation and transformational creativity2015In: Punctum. International Journal of Semiotics, ISSN 2459-2943, Vol. 1, no 2, p. 11-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article we approach a case of intersemiotic translation as a paradigmatic example of Boden’s ‘transformational creativity’ category. To develop our argument, we consider Boden’s fundamental notion of ‘conceptual space’ as a regular pattern of semiotic action, or ‘habit’ (sensu Peirce). We exemplify with Gertrude Stein’s intersemiotic translation of Cézanne and Picasso’s proto-cubist and cubist paintings. The results of Stein’s IT transform the conceptual space of modern literature, constraining it towards new patterns of semiosis. Our association of Boden’s framework to describe a cognitive creative phenomenon with a philosophically robust theory of meaning results in a cognitive semiotic account of IT.

    Ledarskap: En studie om ledarstil för framtida styrmän2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this research is to find out how students, graduating from the Master Mariners programme, look at their own leadership style from their experiences from their cadet training period, their earlier work experience and from their acquired knowledge from the course in leadership which is included in the programme. The method used for this research is qualitative, with semi-structured interviews and literature studies. Ten Master Mariner students were interviewed for this research. An interview guide was used, as support to the interviewer, during the interviews. The answers from the interviews were analyzed theoretically on three classical leadership styles; authoritarian, democratic and passive. As regards to the cadet training period and earlier work experience, the result shows that the Master Mariner students regard their own leadership style as to be one that corresponds mostly with a democratic and partly with an authoritarian leadership style. The students think, from their acquired knowledge from the course in leadership, that it is important to be able to adjust one’s leadership according to the situation and to be flexible in one’s leadership style. The result seems to indicate that the flexibility in one’s leadership style lies between a democratic and an authoritarian leadership style.

    Your Exotic, Your Victim, Your Terrorist.: Visual storytelling to challenge the Western stigma of Arab women living in areas of conflict.2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to explore how illustrative storytelling can challenge the western stigma of Arab women in areas of conflict. This exploration will be done through an analysis on the history and the current visualization of Arab women in the west and a series of illustrations I will be creating that propose a narrative opposing this visualization. My study will show how the visual references used for my research have had a major effect in shaping the image of the Arab women in the west. The aim of this project is to use the same characteristics that fall under the stereotypical visualizations of Arab women to challenge the stigma of classifying these women as; the terrorist, the exotic, and/or the oppressed. The purpose of my project is to create a change in the way the western audience perceives Arab women in areas of conflict. I will therefore analyze in this essay how western media and art have shaped the collective view the west has on Arab women. Furthermore, the essay will explain how storytelling proposes a rejection to the static depiction of Arab women in western media and introduces instead an element of an evolving story. This project proposes a sustainable way of looking at gender and conflict in the Arab world provoking questions around the visualization of these women and creating discussions about the accuracy of the perception the west has created. This in turn re-contextualizes the visualization of the identity of Arab women in the west with the aim of breaking the objectification these women.

    Monstera Deliciosa: Serveringsbricka med variationsmöjlighet för servitriser och servitörer2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Monstera Deliciosa is a serving tray for waitresses and waiters when serving beverages and accessories. The project emerged when I looked back at my former profession as a waitress in a restaurant. The body is a constantly working tool in many different heavy work situations. The serving tray works with several variation options in use to create less monotonous load, thus solving the problem of working from from both right and left hand side. The tray can be worn resting on the arm / hand with the choice to grab the tray with the fingers in the recessed holes, then the shoulder, and finally resting on the hip.

    The placing of the tray depends on what is served on the tray. The tray has four trails openings from the edges, two on each side. They provide a safe way of carrying wine glasses.

    The name of the tray is referring to its visual resemblance with leafs of the plant Monstera Deliciosa.

    The Wire og kriminalitetens afkroge2012In: Passage, ISSN 0901-8883, E-ISSN 1904-7797, no 68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article argues that the American TV-series The Wire poses complicated political and ideological questions rather than attempting to deliver clear-cut answers or solutions to the problems represented. The Wire is analysed both as an aesthetic phenomenon (narratological and thematic analysis) and as a representation of societal elements (which demands analysis based on sociological, historical and criminological perspectives). After a brief overview of the series, the authors aim to generalise the results of the analysis of a particular part of the five-season series, namely the “Hamsterdam-episode”.

    "We have whistles instead of guns": Nonviolent resistance in the 21st century2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nonviolent resistance has been found to be more effective in bringing about societal and political transformation than violent insurgency.

    Nonviolent resistance as a nonconventional form of engagement in conflict, furthermore attracts more people, encourages diversity in participation, has the moral high ground and has positive longterm effects on a society, in terms of citizenship skills, civilian peace and democratisation. However, a discourse of militarism and violence can be said to dominate the world today. Macropolitical incompatibilities are often confronted with arms and violence, whether by political leaders or civilians.

    This thesis aspires to challenge this violent discourse, and encourage the move towards nonviolent approaches to confronting and circumventing power and authority, by exploring the mechanisms at work in nonviolent resistance movements, and attain a deeper understanding of which elements of nonviolent resistance movements may be supportive of achieving the aim of the collective action for change.

    The methodological approach is conducting a qualitative, deductive study within the framework of a structured, focused cross-case comparison of four nonviolent, anti-regime movements in the Middle East and North Africa, which have taken place in the 21st century.

    The findings reveal the ambiguous and context-dependent nature of most of the elements scrutinised for their operativeness, and yield suggestive tendencies of few - while they offer a nuanced insight into the dynamics within which these elements work in nonviolent conflict. This study explores the phenomenon of nonviolent resistance, provides an understanding of the complexity of the mechanisms and dynamics involved, and suggests the need for further research into nonviolent resistance, to improve the understanding and utilisation of it.

    Iconic semiosis and representational efficiency in the London Underground Diagram2014In: Cognitive Semiotics, ISSN 1662-1425, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 177-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The icon is the type of sign connected to efficient representational features, and its manipulation reveals more information about its object. The London Underground Diagram (LUD) is an iconic artifact and a well-known example of representational efficiency, having been copied by urban transportation systems worldwide. This paper investigates the efficiency of the LUD in the light of different conceptions of iconicity. We stress that a specialized representation is an icon of the formal structure of the problem for which it has been specialized. By embedding such rules of action and behavior, the icon acts as a semiotic artifact distributing cognitive effort and participating in niche construction.

    Lärare inom gränser: En studie om lärares överlevnadsstrategier2009Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     Arbetets syfte har varit att identifiera erfarna gymnasielärares förhållningssätt och strategier för att genom detta klara av ett långt yrkesliv utan att påverkas alltför mycket av stress. Under arbetets gång har lärare intervjuats på ett sådant sätt att dessa har fått möjlighet att fördjupa sina svar, vilket har givit arbetet en djupare insikt genom lärarnas egna berättelser. Den teoribakgrund som har legat bakom undersökningen bygger på Antonovskys teori om Känslan Av SaMmanhang, Kasam. Förutom intervjuer har lärarna fått svara på den korta versionen av Antonovskys livsfrågeformulär, där tyngdpunkten ligger på hur individen reagerar i olika livssituationer och där grundkomponenterna begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet leder fram till god förmåga att hantera och stressfulla situationer. Genom intervjuer och frågeformulär har arbetet försökt att finna de förhållningssätt som varit framgångsrika för att hantera situationen i skolan. Dessa strategier har vi indelat i kategorierna gränssättning, beredskap, ambitionsnivå och fritid. Resultatet har åskådliggjort lärarnas synpunkter och uppfattningar om vad som var viktigt för att långsiktigt klara av yrkesrollen. Informanternas svar som givits genom livsfrågeformulärets frågor har dessutom visat på att de lärare som intervjuats äger dessa egenskaper.

    Digital humanities: an exploration of a new programs in higher education and its meaning making by community partners2017In: Extended Papers of the International Symposium on Digital Humanities (DH 2016): Växjö, Sweden, November, 7-8, 2016 / [ed] Koraljka Golub & Marcelo Milrad, CEUR-WS.org , 2017, Vol. 2021, p. 119-125Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As part of the Digital Humanities initiative at Linnaeus University, this exploratory study is aimed at gathering views and opinions from relevant stakeholders in the regional community in order to understand their perspective on Digital Humanities as a subject of study and the potential application of Digital Humanities to address local requirements. The ultimate purpose of the study was to inform the development of Digital Humanities at Linnaeus University in a way that would address genuine needs within society. The principal research question of the study was: "What views and opinions are there about Digital Humanities and how can they be exploited for the optimal benefit of the education and industry sectors of the local region of Småland?" A focus group interview of four stakeholders was conducted, each representing a different cultural institution in the region. The participants largely agreed that Digital Humanities could be used in optimal ways to engage people and end users in their work and social engagement. The Digital Humanities project could contribute and engage with wider society through schools, museums and other public platforms. However, the sustainability of the Digital Humanities project requires further study. Also, as a provider of higher education in Sweden, it was important to bear in mind that the proposed educational programme in the Digital Humanities needs to keep to the three pillars of Education, Research, and Engagement with Society as the primary components of their course development.

    "För mig faller det sig liksom bara naturligt!": En studie om fyra pedagogers tankar kring jämställdhet och genus i skolår F-2.2013Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vad pedagoger i skolverksamheten har för tankar kring skolans arbete med jämställdhet och genus. Följande frågeställningar ligger till grund för studien: Vad har pedagogerna för erfarenheter av jämställdhetsarbete? Hur resonerar pedagogerna kring genus? På vilket sätt arbetar man för att främja ett medvetet tankesätt kring jämställdhet och genus bland eleverna? Med hjälp av kvalitativa intervjuer fick fyra pedagoger från en liten skola i södra Sverige dela med sig av sina tankar och erfarenheter. I resultatet har det framkommit att jämställdhet är ett misstolkat begrepp som kopplas samman med likabehandling. Det förekommer inget aktivt arbete med varken jämställdhet eller genus i elevgrupperna, och de gånger detta diskuteras är vid enstaka tillfällen i undervisningen. Den enda information pedagogerna i studien upplever att de får om jämställdhet och genus är vad som står i läroplanerna. Ingen av pedagogerna kan påminna sig om att det någonsin förekommit ett arbete med jämställdhet i personalgruppen, men är eniga om att ett kontinuerligt jämställdhetsarbete behövs för att inte falla tillbaka i gamla rutiner. Pedagogerna är eniga om att det inte behövs någon större eftertanke kring genus, då de anser att det efter en lång arbetserfarenhet faller sig naturligt att behandla eleverna på individnivå och inte göra skillnad på kön.

    Kvinnorna i flyktingkrisen: En kritisk diskursanalys om hur svenska kvällstidningar framställer kvinnor på flykt2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this bachelor thesis was to examine how the Swedish tabloid press represent women refugees in the news coverage of the european refugee crisis. 

    The main question was: How are women refugees represented in the tabloid press news stories about the refugee crisis?

    To approach our question we used a critical discourse analysis. We examined a total of 17 news stories published during the first two weeks in September 2015, all of them published in Aftonbladet, Expressen, GT or Kvällsposten.

    During the analysis a total of four discursive themes emerged: The strong refugee woman, the weak refugee woman, the invisible refugee woman and the refugee woman as a mother figure.

    Three of our themes – the weak refugee woman, the invisible refugee woman and the refugee woman as a mother figure – are examples of how old ideologies about refugees and women still are present in the Swedish evening papers of today. These constructions  are based on myths and historical stereotypes. 

    Even though the refugee woman commonly are described as weak, subordinated and inactive, she can also be described as strong and independent – the strong refugee woman. This, the fourth theme, differs from the traditional stereotypes.

    Konflikthantering till sjöss: En studie i hur överstyrmän upplever och hanterar konflikter till sjöss2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    At sea, a strict hierarchy is the natural chain of command. This ranges from the captain to the individual sailor. The Chief Officer, second in command on deck, has many areas of responsibility. For instance, he or she is commonly in charge of prioritizing aspects of ship maintenance, supervise and manage crew work-orders and the main responsibility for loading and discharging cargo. With this in mind, it is not hard to imagine that a mustered chief officer will experience a variety of conflicts on-board, both work related and personal. The purpose of this study is to answer what conflicts are the most common from a chief officers perspective on-board a merchant vessel. Also it will gauge if there are any specific conflict management methods that are used by chief officers to advert or intervene in the conflict situations that can arise. The concluding section of this study will look at the possibility and interest for chief officers to attend a course in conflict management to further develop their tools within this area. Through in-depth interviews with active chief officer the result showed that the most common conflicts were perceived as the ones that arose from everyday problems on-board. These minor issues, if left to their own accord, tend to escalate. From a conflict management perspective, all findings indicate that chief officers tend to use a predefined strategy in regards to solving or manage conflicts on-board. However, all respondents agree that further education within the field would surely benefit them as individuals and also the on-board culture as a whole.

    ICH and Identity: the use of ICH Among Global Multicultural Citizens2018In: Research Handbook on Contemporary Intangible Cultural Heritage: Law and Heritage / [ed] Charlotte Waelde, Catherine Cummings, Mathilde Pavis, Helena Enright, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2018, p. 194-215Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores how people with a multicultural identity, that is people with no particular place-based identities, not asserting ancestral connections to the land, and a lack of sense of belonging to a single culture, develop a distinctive way of using traditional forms of intangible cultural heritage, specifically cuisine in terms of food diversity, sense and taste experiences, and culinary savoir-faires. Through exploring how multicultural people give meaning and use local and fusion cuisine as an intangible heritage, the chapter discus how globalization, serial migration and multiculturalism are redefining the notions of originality and authority as traditional defined by the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

    La dynamique de groupe dans l’enseignement du français langue étrangère (FLE) au lycée en Suède: Problématique de la participation orale au sein des groupes informels et restreints2017Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this analytical research paper, the notions of second language acquisition and group dynamics are discussed in order to assess whether the latter is lacking in today’s Swedish upper-secondary schools’ French classes. In its theoretical section, this paper focuses on the foreign language didactics taught to students of foreign language education programs in Sweden and, most particularly, on their approach to the advantages and the benefits of group work and group dynamics. The didactic models of Lundahl (2012) and Tornberg (2015) are presented as well as the notions of primary and secondary groups found in Thornberg’s (2006) work. In its analytical section, this paper presents a written interview, built on Lundahl and Skärvad’s (1999) model, which was sent to ten upper-secondary school French teachers. This paper then provides an analysis of their answers based on Georgi’s model, as presented by Dimenäs (2007), and compares the main points to the theory. It emerges from the teacher’s answers that they tend to prefer middle sized groups, as they believe them to be best suited for a good work atmosphere and quality group dynamics. However, and contrary to the working hypothesis of this paper, most of the teachers seem not to think that small groups are an issue. In fact, it appears from their answers that they prefer to work with smaller rather than larger groups, which they find difficult to maneuver.

    A medium-centered model of communication2018In: Semiotica, ISSN 0037-1998, E-ISSN 1613-3692, no 224, p. 269-293Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to form a new communication model, which is centered on the intermediate stage of communication, here called medium. The model is intended to be irreducible, to highlight the essential communication entities and their interrelations, and potentially to cover all conceivable kinds of communication of meaning. It is designed to clearly account for both verbal and nonverbal meaning, the different roles played by minds and bodies in communication, and the relation between presemiotic and semiotic media features. As a result, the model also pinpoints fundamental obstacles for communication located in media products themselves, and demonstrates how Shannon's model of transmission of computable data can be incorporated in a model of human communication of meaning.

    A Theoretical Approach to Media Transformations2013In: Translatio : Transmédialité et transculturalité en littérature, peinture, photographie et au cinéma / [ed] Alfonso de Toro, Paris: L'Harmattan , 2013, p. 97-105Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, I will firstly sketch a fundamental distinction between representation and mediation, or, more specifically, between representation of media and transmediation. After that, I will discuss media characteristics that can be called “transmedial”, meaning that they can be successfully transferred from one medium to another. The aim is to establish a framework from which to develop a comprehensive theory of transmediality that has the capacity to include a wide range of phenomena that are characterized by transfers of media characteristics. To date, there has been no systematic account of all these phenomena. Existing research is characterized by compartmentalization, which does not favor a general understanding of transmedial relations. Most existing studies focus either on only a few media and their specific interrelations, or on limited study areas such as adaptation and ekphrasis. At the present time, adaptation is probably the most vigorous research area dedicated to the study of transmediality.

    Adaptation and Intermediality2017In: The Oxford Handbook of Adaptation Studies / [ed] Thomas Leitch, New York: Oxford University Press, 2017, p. 509-526Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to investigate the relation between adaptation and intermediality and to demonstrate why adaptation studies would profit from a broad intermedial research context. A list of ten ways of delimiting the notion of adaptation within the broader field of intermediality is presented and thoroughly discussed. The goal is to pinpoint border zones of adaptation that are only partly recognized as such by adaptation scholars. It is argued that failing to reflect on these borders ignores relevant neighbor disciplines, and that insufficient attention to related theoretical fields reduces the possibility for adaptation studies to produce research that is relevant for a broader range of phenomena and a broader field of scholars. The essay also briefly investigates some core issues of intermedial research, and hence of adaptation studies, and summarizes some vital notions that are helpful for investigating essential similarities and differences among media and for capturing the material and semiotic conditions for adaptation.

    Bridging the Gap Between Image and Metaphor Through Cross-Modal Iconicity: An Interdisciplinary Model2017In: Dimensions of Iconicity / [ed] Angelika Zirker, Matthias Bauer, Olga Fischer, Christina Ljungberg, Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017, Vol. 15, p. 167-190Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our minds are capable of perceiving similarities not only within the same but also across different sensory areas and different cognitive domains. Iconicity is representation based on similarity, and cross-modal iconicity, which is an extremely widespread phenomenon, should be understood as iconicity that crosses the borders of different kinds of material, spatiotemporal, and sensorial modes, and, furthermore, the border between sensory structures and cognitive configurations. For instance, a visual entity may resemble and thus iconically represent something that is auditory or abstractly cognitive. The aim of this semiotic study, substantially based on empirical findings in psychological, cognitive, and neurological research, is to suggest a general theoretical framework for conceptualizing cross-modal iconicity and relating different kinds of mono-modal and cross-modal iconicity to each other. Its chief argument is that perception and conception of images and metaphors should be understood as the two extremes in a continuum of iconic representation where cross-modal iconicity bridges the apparent gap between mono-modal, sensory-based iconicity and cognitive iconicity. It offers an outline of material, spatiotemporal, and sensorial modes and their interrelations; a thorough account of cross-modal iconicity; a conceptual structure for charting degrees of similarity and iconicity with the aid of cross-modality; an array of examples illustrating the continuum of iconicity from image to metaphor; and a brief discussion of the notion of image schema as an explanatory factor for cross-modal iconicity.

    Coherence and truthfulness in communication: Intracommunicational and extracommunicational indexicality2018In: Semiotica, ISSN 0037-1998, E-ISSN 1613-3692, no 225, p. 423-446Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to construct a model that demonstrates how human communication, involving all kinds of media, may not only correspond to but also put us in contact with what we perceive to be the surrounding world. In which ways is truthfulness actually established by communication ? To answer this, the notion of indices is employed: signs based on contiguity. However, an investigation of indices' outward direction - creating truthfulness in communication - also requires an understanding of their inward direction: establishing coherence. To investigate these two functions, further concepts and various elementary categorizations are proposed: it is argued that there are several types of contiguity and many varieties of indexical objects, which invalidates the coarse fiction-nonfiction distinction.

    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to form a new communication model, which is centered on the intermediate stage of communication, here called medium. The model is intended to be irreducible, to highlight the essential communication entities and their interrelations, and potentially to cover all conceivable kinds of communication. It is designed to clearly account for both verbal and nonverbal meaning, the different roles played by minds and bodies in communication, and the relation between presemiotic and semiotic media features. As a result, the model also pinpoints fundamental obstacles for communication located in media products themselves, and demonstrates how Shannon’s (1948) model of transmission of computable data can be incorporated in a model of human communication of meaning.

    Iconicity as Meaning Miming Meaning and Meaning Miming Form2010In: Iconicity in Language and Literature, ISSN 1873-5037, Vol. 9, p. 73-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Iconicity consists of mimetic relations between form and meaning. This article is based on the notion of ‘spatial thinking’ and it is argued that there is no form without meaning, and that all meaning has some sort of form. Two fundamental distinctions are used. The first is Charles Sanders Peirce’s well-known division into three types of iconicity: image, diagram, and metaphor, which is extended to include ‘weak’ and ‘strong diagrams’. The second is a distinction between ontologically different appearances of signs: visual material signs, auditory material signs, and complex cognitive signs. A two-dimensional model illustrating the relations between these two distinctions is presented. The model is based on the assumption that iconicity, to a certain extent, is gradable, and it shows that the field of iconicity includes many phenomena that are not generally seen as related, but that nevertheless can be systematically compared. It also shows, among other things, that the ‘metaphor’ and the ‘weak diagram’ are singled out by the capacity of miming across the borders both between the visual and the auditory, and between the material and the mental. The main argument of the article is that iconicity should be understood not only as “form miming meaning and form miming form”, but also as “meaning miming meaning and meaning miming form”.

    Identificando, construindo e transpondo as fronteiras das mídias2018In: X Seminário de Pesquisa, II Encontro Internacional: Jornada Intermídia / [ed] Greicy Pinto Bellin, Curitiba: Uniandrade , 2018, p. 1-15Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [pt]

    Este artigo se concentra na necessária – mas sempre problemática – noção das fronteiras das mídias, que há muito tem sido examinada pelos estudos intermidiáticos. Minha observação inicial é a de que é impossível transitar no ambiente material e mental de determinado sujeito sem categorizar objetos e fenômenos; sem as categorizações tudo seria um borrão – difícil de entender e de explicar. No entanto, a categorização exige fronteiras, e as fronteiras podem e devem sempre ser questionadas. A área de comunicação não é uma exceção: por um lado, é necessário categorizar as mídias em tipos; por outro lado, não fica claro como essas categorizações devem ser feitas. Meu objetivo não é argumentar a favor ou contra certas formas de se classificar as mídias comunicativas, mas tentar explicar algumas das funções e limitações das fronteiras midiáticas. Argumento, resumidamente, que existem diferentes tipos de fronteiras de mídias e, portanto, diferentes tipos de mídias. Se essas diferenças não forem reconhecidas, a compreensão da categorização das mídias permanecerá confusa. Enquanto algumas fronteiras midiáticas são relativamente estáveis, outras estão mais sujeitas a mudanças; portanto, as fronteiras das mídias podem ser entendidas como sendo tanto identificadas quanto construídas. No entanto, no final, praticamente todas as fronteiras das mídias podem ser superadas por meio de nossas capacidades cognitivas cross-modais.

    Identifying, Construing, and Bridging over Media Borders2018In: Scripta Uniandrade, ISSN 1679-5520, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 15-30Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article will center on the necessary but always problematic notion of media borders, which has since long been scrutinized by intermedial studies. My initial observation is that it is impossible to navigate in one’s material and mental surrounding if one does not categorize objects and phenomena; without categorizations everything would be a blur – difficult to grasp and to explain. However, categorization requires borders, and borders can and should always be disputed. The area of communication is not an exception: on one hand it is necessary to somehow categorize media into types, and on the other hand it is not evident how these categorizations should be made. My aim is not to argue in favor of or against certain ways of classifying communicative media, but to try to explain some of the functions and limitations of media borders. I argue, in brief, that there are different types of media borders and hence different types of media types; if these differences are not recognized, the understanding of media categorization will remain confused. Whereas some media borders are relatively stable, others are more subject to change; therefore, media borders can be understood to be both identified and construed. However, in the end virtually all media borders can be bridged over through our cross-modal cognitive capacities.

    Le rôle du corps pour la cognition et la signification2018In: Degrés, ISSN 0770-8378, Vol. 46, no 175-176, p. b1-b8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [fr]

    Cette intervention s’inscrit dans le domaine de la communicationhumaine et se base sur l’idée qu’esprit/cognition et corps sontintimement interdépendants. J’aborderai les points suivants, qui serontconsidérés comme corrélés.1) Le corps comme producteur de produits média. Toutecommunication commence par l’« esprit/ la conscience d’unproducteur », situé dans un corps, qui, d’une manière ou d’uneautre, génère un produit média, qui devrait être entendu commel’entité intermédiaire rendant possible une communication entreesprits.2) Le corps comme produit média. Les produits média sontnécessairement matériels d’une certaine manière, ce qui impliquequ’ils soient des entités ou des processus physiques. Ils peuventêtre des corps organiques, des entités non organiques, ou unecombinaison des deux.3) Le corps comme percevant des produits média. L’«esprit dupercevant » ne peut entrer en contact avec le produit médiad’aucune autre manière qu’à travers la perception sensorielle, quiest un phénomène éminemment corporel.4) Le corps dans l’esprit/la conscience percevant les produitsmédias. Lorsque des corps acquièrent une fonction de produitmédia, ils agissent comme signes – des « representamens » dansla terminologie de Peirce. Toutefois, des corps peuvent égalementêtre des « objets » de signification ; ils peuvent être représentés.La communication peut donc impliquer la représentation de corpset objets concrets. La communication peut également impliquerla représentation d’entités plus abstraites telles que des concepts,idées, intentions, et relations ; mais bien qu’abstraites, de tellesnotions mentales sont, dans une large mesure, ancrées dansl’expérience de nos corps interagissant avec le monde environnant.

    Material and Mental Representation: Peirce Adapted to the Study of Media and Arts2014In: American Journal of Semiotics, ISSN 0277-7126, E-ISSN 2153-2990, Vol. 30, no 1-2, p. 83-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to adapt Peirce’s semiotics to the study of media and arts. While some Peircean notions are criticized and rejected, constructive ways of understanding Peirce’s ideas are suggested, and a number of new notions, which are intended to highlight crucial aspects of semiosis, are then introduced. All these ideas and notions are systematically related to one another within the frames of a consistent terminology. The article starts with an investigation of Peirce’s three sign constituents and their interrelations: the representamen, the object, and the interpretant. A new approach to the interrelations of these three sign constituents is then suggested and manifested in a distinction between representation and neopresentation. This is followed by a critical discussion of Peirce’s three types of representation — iconicity, indexicality, and symbolicity — and their interrelations, which sets the stage for a presentation of what is referred to as the material and mental representation (MMR) model. This model aims to illuminate the problematic relation between material and mental facets of signification triggered by media and art products, and other material things and phenomena.

    Media Borders, Multimodality and Intermediality2010Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Media Borders, Multimodality and Intermediality is a collection of sixteen essays dealing with theoretical questions concerning the relations between various forms of art and new media. Intermediality and multimodality have become buzzwords over the last decade, but surprisingly little effort has been made to circumscribe theoretically what media and modes actually are and how the notions of intermediality and multimodality are related. The aim of the volume is to illuminate these very basic queries in order to facilitate communication and theoretical cross-fertilization over the borders between the aesthetic disciplines, media and communication studies, semiotics, linguistics, and other research fields. The essays deal with combinations, integrations, mediations and transformations of old and new media. Theoretical issues, centred on the core question of media borders, are foregrounded, but the volume also includes a wide range of case studies, including medieval ballads, biopoetry, Lettrism, television, field guides, music, film, digital media and performance.

    Media Transformation: The Transfer of Media Characteristics Among Media2014Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Why are some kinds of information and qualities possible to transfer from one medium to another type of medium, whereas others resist intermedial transfer? This basic question guides the investigations in Media Transformation of communicative phenomena that are in a way self-evident and yet highly complex and difficult to explain. The book is a methodical study of the material and mental limits and possibilities of transferring information and media characteristics among dissimilar media. Whereas media such as speech, gestures, writing, music, films, and websites are clearly different, they also have common traits that enable systematic comparison. Elleström proposes a theoretical model for pinpointing the most vital conceptual entities and stages of intermedial transfers and illustrates how the model can be used in practical analysis.

    Modelling Human Communication: Mediality and Semiotics2018In: Meanings & Co.: The Interdisciplinarity of Communication, Semiotics and Multimodality / [ed] Alin Olteanu, Andrew Stables, Dumitru Borţun, Cham: Springer, 2018, p. 7-32Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article delineates a model of communication among human mindsthat is designed to work equally well for all kinds of nonverbal and verbal significance.The model thus allows for detailed analysis of and comparison among allvarieties of human communication. In particular, the transitional stage of communication,which is termed the media product, is thoroughly developed andconceptualized in terms of mediality and semiosis. By way of mapping basic mediadissimilarities that are vital for differing communicative capacities, the modelexplains both how various sorts of significance can be transferred among minds,and why they cannot always be realized. The article furthermore suggests a semioticframework for conceptualizing the familiar notion that communication is alsostrongly predisposed by surrounding factors such as earlier experiences and culturalinfluence.
