  • A Generational Thing?:

    • Drawing on the work of Karl Mannheim this article analyses the internet as a generational phenomenon. It makes use of two different, but in generational terms interrelated empirical materials. In the first case study, data from focus group interviews and individual interviews with a total 55 young Swedes (15-25 years). These data reveal how young Swedes tend to understand illegal file sharing as a generational issue. Among other things, they consider themselves rather than middle-aged politicians to be the actual legal authorities within the area.The second case study is based on a youth council, Lunds ungdomsting. The research project started with an ambition to understand the internet's role in engaging young people. The initial analyses, however, revealed that although the internet plays a role, it cannot usefully be separated from other activities. We consider and analyse this observation through Mannheim's terminology: the youth council members' generational experience of the internet has naturalized it as a form of communication in a manner that makes distinctions between online and offline action obsolete.

  • Surveillance and File Sharing – Two Issues Engaging the Unengaged
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Learning and Media. - The MIT press. - 1943-6068. ; 2:1, s. 55-66

    • Over the last decade a great deal of research attention has been paid to the Internet as a potential vehicle for civic and/or political engagement among young people. Many of these analyses have been looking (or perhaps hoping) for a simple cause-and-effect relationship. Young people seem uninterested in traditional forms of politics, but they are very interested in Internet use—so in what ways might the Internet be able to “bring them back” to politics? Research has often treated the Internet as a potential resource for making the unengaged engaged, as well as a useful resource for already engaged young people. Drawing on recently conducted focus groups with various groups of young people (15–25 years old), this article analyzes a different relationship between the Internet and “unengaged” young people: how young people's Internet practices sometimes become their very reason for engagement. In the focus groups this kind of interest arose in respect of two interrelated aspects of the interviewees' everyday Internet use: their file-sharing practices and the threat of surveillance. The article presents young people's constructions of these themes—that is, how young people themselves perceive and make sense of them. The article's concluding section contextualizes these findings, mainly by relating them to the current success of the Swedish Piracy Party (Piratpartiet), which made it to the European Parliament in the elections of June 2009. The party has ideologically profiled itself around these issues and has been successful in attracting young people. Finally, the article discusses the findings in the light of theories of generations

  • For activists, for potential voters, for consumers: three modes of producing the civic web
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Journal of Youth Studies. - Taylor and Francis Ltd. - 1367-6261. ; 11:5, s. 497-512
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • During the last decade, numerous studies of the internet's civic dimensions have taught us a considerable amount about the form of new technologies. They have, for instance, analysed how the internet's interactive character, its multimodality and its open character create civic opportunities, not least for young people. The field has, however, rather neglected a number of important issues. For instance, the category of 'producers' of civic content has received little attention. Hence, research has neglected questions such as the following. What interests inspire producers of civic websites? How is the production being carried through? What views of the internet inspire their work? This article begins to redress this neglect by analysing the producers of three different websites. The three websites are brought from different spheres of civil society - party politics, commercial media and activism - and they are analysed through producer interviews. The article reveals and critically discusses differences and similarities between different modes of producing civic web resources.

  • Producing Prod-Users : Conditional Participation in a Web 2.0 Consumer Community
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Javnost - The Public. - 1318-3222. ; 19:3, s. 41-58
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Is contemporary media ecology an ecology that offers unprecedented freedom for producing participators, the “prod-users,” or could it also be understood as an ecology in which various forms of user participation are in fact conditioned, or manufactured, by professional producers? Considering the increasing research attention paid to various notions of user participation, these questions become important. This article critically discusses the theorising of mediated participation by illustrating and analysing ways in which users’ participatory practices in fact can be both conditioned and formatted by producers making strategic use of participatory opportunities. By drawing on an ethnographically inspired case study of a web company, Moderskeppet, this analysis reveals how the actual possibilities for participation thoroughly are conditioned by producers. The paper also analyses strategies and techniques applied by the producers to create a sense of participation among users.
