Ephemeral mobilities in digital ethnography

significant elements of the media spaces that people navigate daily, engaging with them in digital ethnography is the key to understanding what such media environments mean to their users. Further, in terms of media as social spaces, digital traces are the building blocks of what can be thought of as online presence and, thus, constitutive of a sense of online sociality. However, digital traces should not become the only thing that digital ethnographers follow. Digital ethnographers should, depending on the social object that they choose to follow, be able to integrate

Sustainable Oil and Profitable Wind
The communication of corporate responsibilities as inverted positioning!strategy There are only a few references pointing beyond the scope of the market. Vestas claims to benefit “our customers and our planet”. Like Shell, they make use of a rhetorical figure that links economic responsibilities with environmental responsibilities. However, this is not integrative but additive, and the blunt headline for their “strategy” makes clear where the priorities lie: “Profitable Growth for Vestas”. Once more, nature is positioned as a resource, revealing an instrumental approach towards the environment: Vestas’ vision is “solely committed to harvesting the

News Media and the Öresund Region
A Case of Horizontal Europeanisation?

Swedish news media were also put on hold indefinitely. Today, the mobility between Denmark and Sweden has increased greatly accessed 21/6 2016 , but cultural integration and the creation of a common public sphere have not advanced as far ( Hall 2008 , Löfgren 2008 ). This article thus picks up where the most recent studies have left off. We analyse 2002–2012 news coverage of the region in Danish and Swedish newspapers to see if a more common mediated public sphere emerged during the same time that

individuals present in the items. If the item included emotions such as fear, anger or sorrow, it was coded as emotional (otherwise as unemotional). A third dichotomous variable, mode of emotionality, was used to analyse whether emotions were expressed through integrative or disruptive forms of identification. If people primarily were expressed as coming together through shared experiences, solidarity or sorrow, the item was coded as integrative. If people were described in terms of blame, revenge or ethnic animosity, the item was coded as disruptive. Framing and actors

Exploring Journalism and Computer Science Student Collaboration
A Norwegian case study

an awareness of and identified ‘the contribution of the other students’ (2011: 17). Hultén and Edwardsson (2017) find challenges like communication between disciplines, finding common ground and obstacles when integrating storytelling and engineering design. However, their students found the collaboration to be helpful overall and ‘reported an awareness of the need to communicate across disciplines’ (2017: 13). In a similar vein, Angus and Doherty (2015) state that despite many challenges, interdisciplinarity was achieved in their student project. Weber and

Storylab Lessons
A Collaborative Project Between Courses in Journalism and Media Technology

Consequently, the role of storytelling in journalism should not be underestimated, and a student-based project combining and exploring emerging technologies and storytelling was considered to be of significant value. One key concept in this study is digital storytelling and it is investigated as a means to integrate the learning activities of technology with journalism. We are loosely inspired by Joe Lambert’s view on digital storytelling

Tracing Communicative Patterns
A comparative ethnography across platforms, media and contexts

digital trace data in the context of a person’s total communicative repertoire by making it possible to discern how and why people move between digital and analogue communication. As such, the article offers a unique methodological design for comprehensively studying people’s everyday internet use by capturing all communicative acts moving across different platforms, media and contexts. Researchers focusing on digital communication often define their research area by the level of online or offline integration ( Garcia et al., 2009 ) or delimit their scope by focusing

Making Sense of Small and Big Data as Onlife Traces

meaning and meaningful data deserves renewed attention in our research field in the light of societal and technological changes. When media usage becomes more seamless integrating various forms of physical and digital interwoven lives in big data studies becomes central to create meaningful data ( boyd & Crawford, 2012 ; Mayer-Schönberger & Cukier, 2013 ). At the same time new types of small n-studies arise along with new theoretical and methodological considerations in classical qualitative studies. This special issue gathers a number of articles that study onlife

Issue Salience on Twitter During Swedish Party Leaders’ Debates

“Green/Alternative/Libertarian vs. Traditional/Authoritarian/Nationalist” (GAL/TAN) policy dimension ( Hooghe et al., 2002 ). For the purpose of this study, issues that are not directly related to the traditional economic policy dimension will be considered to belong to the GAL/TAN dimension. Policy issues on this dimension include not only issues such as immigration, European integration, the environment and gender equality, but also defence and law and order ( Kriesi et al., 2008 ). Traditional media coverage is central to the agenda-setting process and the
