    Media For President: En studie om svensk kvällspress gestaltning av de tre största partierna efter valet år 2014 2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the Swedish tabloids portray three of Sweden’s parliamentary parties - The Swedish Moderate Party, The Social Democrat Party and The Swedish Democrat Party. By distinguishing if the media framing of the political parties follows the political logic or the media logic, a greater understanding and awareness of the relation between citizens’ trust of political parties and the media, can be reached. The study is based on a quantitative content analysis of 610 published articles in the two largest Swedish tabloids - Aftonbladet and Expressen. The study is based on a theoretical framework that includes mediation, the medialization theory, the agenda setting theory and the framing theory. The result indicates that media logic is most frequently used in the portrayal of the Swedish parlamentary parties in the Swedish tabloids. This study shows that media logic is applied in 77 % of the articles, compared to political logic that is applied in 21 %, of the 610 articles gathered during the research process of this thesis. The results show no significant differences between the tabloids, however the framing of the three political parties differ. The Swedish Democrat party is portrayed more often in a scandalous perspective than the other two parties, and more rarely through issue framing. By applying the theory of Strömbäck (2103b), the result of this study indicates that the tabloids framing should affect the citizens’ political opinions and trust.

    En stad. Många skuggor.: En studie av Sydsvenskans rapportering i Malmö2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay has been to study if all the districts in the city of Malmoe get to be seen in the city’s biggest newspaper, Sydsvenskan. Is the reporting proportional? What images is the newspaper offering the citizens? Do they match the reality? Or are some parts of Malmoe in the dark, in a media shadow?

    Research done in the past has shown that Stockholm in many ways is in a media shadow. The same pattern was shown in Gothenburg. It has also been argued that the district Rosengård in Malmoe has suffered the same treatment. This essay studies if this also applies to the whole city of Malmoe.

    With a quantitatively and a qualitatively perspective, four weeks of articles have been analyzed. This essay holds the answers to what subjects and which people are represented in the paper. It studies if the reporting is proportional and explains what images are offered from the different parts of Malmoe.

    The conclusions show that several parts of Malmoe are in a media shadow, exposed to unilateral and in some cases non-existing reporting, leaving the citizens with an untrue image of their city.

    Den komplexa skolan: En studie om informella processers betydelse för internkommunikationen2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Problem: De informella processernas betydelse för internkommunikationen i en skolorganisation.  

    Syfte: Få en förståelse kring vilken betydelse informella processer har för internkommunikationen och hur de informella processerna flödar inom en skolorganisation.

    Metod: Kvalitativa semistrukturerade intervjuer med 12 personer som framkommit ur ett strategiskt bekvämlighetsurval.

    Resultat: Huvuddrag från resultatet bygger på bristande internkommunikation, många subkulturer, dominerande informell kommunikation, en mängd kommunikationskanaler, otillräcklig socialisering samt icke nåbara rektorer med skiftande ledarskap.

    Slutsats: Undersökningen utgår från resonemanget att alla de informella processerna är lika viktiga i en organisation för att dess internkommunikation ska fungera. Vi konstaterar att detta inte stämmer helt och hållet, vår undersökning visar att det är kulturen som är den mest framträdande processen för internkommunikationen. Det fastslås av subkulturernas starka roll, bristande socialisering samt att ledarskapet inte är anpassat till den nuvarande situationen.

    Lär av dina misstag!: En undersökning av organisatoriskt lärande vid krishantering.2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    INTRODUKTION: Alla organisationer drabbas någon gång av en kris. Kriser kan uppfattas som väldigt negativa perioder i en organisation men faktum är att varje kris erbjuder lärdomar, det vill säga om organisationen är kapabel att fånga de lärdomarna.

    MÅL: Målet med vår uppsats är att studera organisatorisk lärande ur ett kriskommunikationsperspektiv då vi är intresserade av hur organisationer lär sig och vilken betydelse detta har för deras krishantering. Syftet med denna uppsats är att bidra med ökad förståelse för hur organisationer kan förebygga och förhindra kriser genom att dra lärdom och ta fasta på tidigare erfarenheter och misstag genom aktivt lärande.

    PROBLEM: Hur lär sig organisationer av kriser? Vilka hinder finns för organisationslärande? Vilken betydelse har kommunikation för organisationslärande och organisationsminnet? Vilka kommunikativa möjligheter går att utvinna ur en kris?

    METOD: I studien har vi använt oss av en kvalitativ metod, nämligen respondentintervjuer med fem representanter från tre stora svenska organisationer. Den insamlade empirin har vi sedan analyserat för att finna tendenser på hur organisationer lär sig, hinder mot organisationslärande, kommunikationens roll och krisens möjligheter.

    RESULTAT: Vi fann att organisationer lär på två olika sätt, i kris och utanför kris.Vi fann också sex olika hinder som förhindrar eller försvårar organisationslärande. Dessa har vi valt att kalla: mandat från ledningen, förändringar i organisationen, brist på öppenhet, omedvetet arbete med organisationslärande, höjt tempo och helhetssyn.

    För att organisationer ska kunna skapa ett effektivt organisationslärande kan vi också konstatera att kommunikationen är avgörande, det är det sammanfogande kittet. Slutligen fann vi tre olika aspekter av lärande som organisationer lär sig i kriser ur ett kommunikationsperspektiv, först och främst lär de sig allmänt om kriser, de lär sig om krisers allmänna karaktär och hur den ska hanteras. Kriser bidrar också med en ökad förståelse av kommunikationens betydelse i framförallt utsatta situationer som kriser men också kommunikationens allmänna betydelse för en stor organisations funktionalitet. Slutligen erbjuder kriser ett tillfälle för organisationer att testa sin krisberedskap, kriser ger ökad förståelse om hur den fortsatta krisorganisationen ska se ut för att fungera effektivt.

    NYCKELORD: Kriskommunikation, Organisationslärande, Organisationsminne, Barriärer mot lärande, Krishantering, Lärandeprocesser.

    The Disney Cliché: Relationsdynamik i Disneys animerade filmer från 2000-talet ur ett genusperspektiv2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Disney is one of the largest media companies in the world. They have been critizied for portrayting men, women and love relationships with stereotypical behaviours and attributes. This may lead to negative effects on childrens and adolescents perception of reality. The purpose of this study was to investigate how Disney portrays the dynamic between the characters within the love relationship in their movies launched in the 21st century. This study has examined four movies released in the 21st century containing a love relationship between a man and a woman. Movies examined were; Atlantis - The Lost Empire, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled and Frozen.

    For this study, a quantitative content analysis with qualitative elements was applied to answer the purpose and issue of the study. The study measured the frequency of the characters activities and actions when they are with and without each other, what they are doing together and who is the initiator of classical love actions.

    The results for this study presented interesting patterns. Both female and male characters were often portrayed with stereotypical behaviuors in Disneys animated movies. However, these patterns differed when the characters were with and without each other. When the characters were together, the female characters tended to be portrayed with more male attributes, whilst the male characterstended to be portrayed with more female attributes. Additionally, Disney tend to portray love relationships in a stereotypical and unrealistic way.

    Det var en gång en rasist...: En narrativ analys av Billströmskandalen i Aftonbladet och DN:s ledarartiklar2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The 18th of March 2013, an interview with the immigration minister of Sweden, was published in one of Sweden's largest newspapers. The interview consisted of a number of questions regarding Sweden's immigration policy, the issue with undocumented refugees in particular. The minister stated “Sometimes we have the picture that the hidden refugee is staying with a nice, blond lady in her fifties or sixties who wants to help. But that is not the case. Most of them are staying with their fellow citizens who are in fact not blond or blue eyed.” 

    The purpose of this paper is to analyze the controversy of the statement through theories of scandal, agenda-setting and framing. The conflict that is presented in both newspapers is the question of if the minister should resign or not.

    The method we have used is the narrative analysis, which we apply on both Aftonbladet and Dagens Nyheter, and how their head articles show a certain angle of the scandal. The result of our study is that the reader will visualize two different views of the scandal depending on which newspaper they read. Aftonbladet shows a more bias picture towards the minister and claims that he is a full-blooded racist. Dagens Nyheter’s outcome is that Billström is incompetent and a fool.

    "En galning råkade finnas i staden": En kvalitativ framinganalys av Aftonbladets gestaltning av gärningsmannen bakom skolattacken i Trollhättan2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    On October 22, 2015, a masked man entered the primary school Kronan in Trollhättan and stabbed three people to death with a knife and a sword. Shortly after the attack the perpetrator was shot to death by the police. The event received a great deal of spatial attention in Swedish media and has been called the worst school attack in Swedish history. The twenty-one-year-old perpetrator had grown up in Trollhättan and it is his origin that is of interest in this study. The aim of this study is to examine how a perpetrator of native origin is portrayed in a Swedish medium. Previous research, which shows that there is a difference between how a perpetrator of native origin is portrayed compared to a foreign one, is used as background. According to these studies media often focuses on the perpetrator’s ethnicity and descent if the person is of foreign origin. Through a qualitative framing analysis we examine how the perpetrator in Trollhättan is portrayed in Sweden’s largest news website, namely aftonbladet.se. We explore how the perpetrator's ethnicity and origin are expressed and which of the perpetrator's characteristics are focused on by Aftonbladet. Through framing analysis we also explore how the perpetrator is portrayed from an us-and-them perspective, and how ideas and concepts are personalized through him. The results of this study show that the male perpetrator who is of native origin in the case Trollhättan is portrayed as a lone maniac who committed an act of evil and that Aftonbladet focused on his personal circumstances, for example that he had issues socializing.

    Den prestigefyllda bildens skådespel: En historisk jämförelse av World Press Photo of the Year2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of our study was to examine which news images the media industry choose to reward. The World Press Photo Awards is an anual competition in which a jury of professional photo journalists appoints a winner among over 90 000 contributions. We have studied twelve pictures that have won World Press Photo of the Year over the time span of six decades to explore the characteristics of the winning pictures, but also to give a perspective over time. For the purpose of our study, we took a closer look at the roles of the people in the pictures, as well as the attributes and contexts related to them.

     

    Our findings indicate that myths seem to play a central part in the telling and retelling of stories. The tradgedy of human lives is a reoccurring element, and the people are in most cases depicted in a negative context. The story of the victim, for example, was common in the winning pictures.

     

    We could see that civilians frequently appears in photographs, especially suffering children who often stands as a symbol of weakness. As connected to the mishap of people, our research found similarities to other studies focusing on how news stories speak to our compassion and emotions.

    En het potatis: En kvalitativ fallstudie om journalistikens gestaltning av mediedebatten kring fallet Mr Cool2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to examine the different portrayals in Swedish journalism about a case with a controversial topic. The analyzed case in this study focuses on the provocative rapper Mr Cool and his song about sexual intercourse with a child and the following mediated debate about freedom of speech and morality. The research questions examined were: How does the media frame the meta-debate about Mr Cool? We picked 16 articles and analyzed them with a qualitative content analysis method using framing theory and argumentation techniques in order to be able to examine how the debate were portrayed by the media. We also used the moral panic concept to get a deeper understanding of the mechanics of topics the society is concerned with. We have found that the participants of the debate handled the subject differently and with different strategies, depending on which side they would support. The central discussion was about personal taste, boundary making and the consequences of silencing what is thought to be offensive. The results of the analysis agrees with previous studies and theories in the field when it comes to moral panics and fear as a natural part of our society. History is likely to repeat itself but with other motives and other fears.

    Mer hat – mindre prat?: En studie om hur näthat påverkar de drabbades vilja till självcensur och deltagande i det offentliga rummet.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The discussions about cyber hate has become a burning question, and there is an increasing debate about the conflict of interests between the freedom of speech and how to avoid online content that offends the personal integrity. It is often reported that celebrities have been targets of the harmful comments, but cyber hate is something that can affect us all. 

    With the development of the Internet, more people have been able to make their voice heard and to participate actively in the public debate. Scientists believe that the Internet promotes a free exchange of opinions and improves democracy. The question is though whether it actually could lead to the opposite? The climate on the Internet gets tougher, and we see that some people use the social media comment fields in order to hurt and offend others. There is a risk that the fear of becoming a victim of cyber hate becomes greater than the will to say what you want, without limitations. This leads to widespread self-censorship and that people might feel inhibited when expressing themselves on the Internet.

    The aim of this thesis is to investigate a possible link between cyber hate and self-censorship, in relation to the public space and free, open and respectful debates. Through this paper we have found that there is a relationship between cyber hate and the degree of self-censorship. People affected by cyber hate tend to increase their way of censoring themselves when publishing on the Internet, although in different ways and extent.

    In dialogue with Africa: A quantitative study on students at Linnaeus University from the perspective of the Digital Divide2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to determine whether the targeted university students have a more equal picture regarding Africa than what the Swedish society in general has, which by Sida’s researches has shown to be an oldfangled picture. The research is based on a quantitative method in terms of a survey that in total reached out to 286 responding students at the Linnaeus University in Växjö. The theoretical framework is based on the Digital Divide, Diffusion of Innovation and The model of Newsworthiness.

    The research discusses the oldfangled picture of Africa that remains within the Swedish society, why it remains and what different characters that is to be blamed for the formation, as well as it presents optional efforts that could be used to update the picture of Africa.

    The result from the survey shows that neither do Swedish students at the Linnaeus University possesses a more updated picture, even though they are said to belong to a privileged group in the society, in the manner of access to information from both media, education, Internet and other diverse sources. We conclude that there is a gap in the information distribution regarding Africa, what information that is available for the Swedish society is mostly negative and oldfangled. What can be argued to be an optional solution to this remaining problem is a closure of the digital divide, which would provide an important interpersonal communication channel that is missing today. This is further explained in the thesis with support of earlier researches together with theories and result.

    "We should be a lot angrier": A case study of the Marikana shootings2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim with this study was to examine how the Marikana massacre, the killings of 34 mineworkers in August 2012, was portrayed in the news media in South Africa. We based our study on a discourse analysis of a selection of articles written at the time of the massacre. We have also used interviews with two journalists who covered the Marikana massacre, to gain further insight in journalistic decisions regarding the coverage.

    Through theories and earlier research we have analysed the content, among others we have used Burton’s theory of self-regulation and Gramsci’s theory of media hegemony. The findings of the discourse analysis show that newspapers have covered the incident from different angles, in accordance with the different conflicts that the massacre contains. We found a conflict between the police and miners as they are both portrayed as victims and the criminals in the articles. The second conflict between the largest unions and the third among the politicians Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema.

    We have concluded that there is a political discourse and the political key players have used the massacre as means to gain political support. Through the discourse analysis we have also found that newspapers are at times critical towards government and authorities.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines which media messages related to happiness that can be found in interviews with famous people in the four largest lifestyle magazines in Sweden for the age group 16-34. The magazines are Cosmopolitan, Elle, Café and King. Depending on which magazine the reader chooses to read he/she will be presented with different roads to happiness. Common for all examined magazines are happiness factors related to personal goals, determination and work. Often in a causal connection where the goal orientation and determination is tied together with success in work and career for the interview persons. Cosmopolitan and King present relatively few roads to happiness in comparison with Elle and especially Café. One factor for happiness is the ability to choose your own road to happiness (Bok 2011). This means that Cosmopolitan and King from the perspective of their interview texts do not promote happiness to the same degree as Café and Elle.

    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the news discourses to find out how deaf people and/or deafness is represented and analyses how the discourses might be affected by or influence common attitudes and prejudices about deaf people and/or deafness. First, however, this study analysed the contents of the news articles quantitatively in order to find frequencies of different news topics with references to deaf people and/or deafness and whether deaf people were allowed to talk or not. After the content analysis, ten articles were selected for the discourse analysis.

     

    The results of the content analysis show that deaf people are represented and allowed to talk in most of the articles, but that hearing people are also represented in a majority of the articles. Most articles are about culture and personalities, but there are also articles about for example sign language and hearing devices. Most deaf people are represented as individuals, but they are also represented as representatives for the deaf and as both individuals and representatives.

     

    The discourse analysis shows that deaf people are represented as a linguistic and cultural minority in both cultural and personal discourses but represented as broken and in need of being fixed for integration in society in medical discourses. In medical discourses, only experts talk about deafness and no deaf people are represented. In other discourses, both deaf and hearing people talk about deaf people, sign language and deaf culture. In some of the discourses, however, it is clear that deaf people are represented from the hearing viewpoint on deafness. There were discursive discrimination of deafness in medical discourses but occurred rarely in other discourses except when the medical view on deafness is present. Deaf people are represented as a minority distinct from the hearing majority in most articles and some of the cultural discourses show attempts to build a bridge between the deaf world and the hearing society. The majority of the discourses point to pluralism as a social practice but some of those discourses also point to inclusion and exclusion as social practices. The medical discourses however point to both assimilation and exclusion as social practices.

    Nyheter på 10 sekunder: En socialsemiotisk analys av CNNs stories på Snapchat2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Journalism as we know it today is facing massive change. Technological advances have enabled new ways of delivering news which differ from traditional means in both practical and content-related matters. This bachelors thesis intended to obtain greater understanding of how journalistic content manifested itself on the new media platform Snapchat. We chose to conduct a socialsemiotic analysis of six of CNNs “stories” on the platform and their corresponding content on CNNs website. By doing this we could distinguish a signifigant change in both magnitude and form. Compared to the corresponding content the stories contained less information and indicated a higher level of sensation and dramatics. In addition we found that information not conveyed in the stories text could appear in other modalities such as image or music. This suggests a different way of storytelling in news media when distributed on this new platform.
