Abstract [en]

Collective memories of Chernobyl in Gävle, Sweden Eva Aasen Ekstrand Department of humanities, University of Gävle, Sweden, Eva.Ekstrand@hig.se Abstract Collective memories of past environmental disasters, which could possibly anticipate and prevent similar future accidents, according to the saying 'never again', can be assumed to stimulate advocacy. But when and in what way is it relevant at all to speak of collective memory? In April 1986 the Swedish town of Gävle suffered a rainstorm which carried Cecium 134 and 137 from the damaged nuclear power plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine. An area of 30 kilometers around Gävle was severely contaminated. Residents were informed by the authorities through media, although it took a few days for the residents to realize that they were exposed to invisible but dangerous radiation. The headlines wrote in large black letters on the casualties and that Sweden was threatened by disaster. This study is a synthesis of the results of a focus group doing “memory work” (Frigga Haug 1983) twentyseven years after the accident and analyses of oral and written memories that were collected by local players, the press and the local theater for the 25 year commemoration of the accident. In line with e.g. Witte’s Extended Parallel Process the memories act as witness to the lack of control over both the danger itself and of the respondents´ own fears. In the light of a broader historical and social context - of a dissolving industrial society- a collective memory begins to crystallize: of the residents as victims, of silent anxiety and of learned helplessness. The study's knowledge contribution is to recognize that collective memories as a potential counterforce requires some form of perceived efficacy.

Abstract [en]

HIV and AIDS is recognised as not only a global public health problem, but also as a problem that is  embedded in and influenced by cultural, social and economic factors. Conventional public health preventive interventions and awareness campaigns, focusing on improved knowledge and individual behavior change, have largely failed to reduce the transmission of HIV. This observation has required national and international health authorities as well as NGO´s in particularly affected areas, such as South Africa, to revisit how they communicate relevant, consistent and correct information about HIV and AIDS. Due to this global crisis, practitioners and theorists need to rethink about the creative application of communication strategies. Communication serves as a means to discuss health problems, and specific determinants of health with a final goal of “translation of science into practice” (Parvanta, 2011:84). One of the most promising communication approaches to address HIV and AIDS, and in South Africa more specifically, has been Entertainment Education (EE), a creative and engaging communication strategy used to bring about behavioural and social change mainly addressing development and health issues. EE, as a strategy, acknowledges that HIV and AIDS interventions must integrate both cultural and structural (social change) concerns. Yet, ambiguity surrounding how to design and implement culturally appropriate projects has made it more difficult to develop programmes in this manner. This study revisits perceptions of EE from a global audience perspective, using a South African developed EE television series, Intersexions, as a case study. The overall objective of the study is to explore what these perceptions can tell us about the application of EE in various countries and socio-economic and cultural contexts. Young people from Universities in Malaysia, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States, , the Netherlands and Sweden, between the age of 18-25 participated in focus group discussions after the screening of two episodes of Intersexions. The data collected from various countries offers empirical motives, using a mixed methods approach to revisit how we define EE, and how EE in practice can inform further theoretical developments in the field. The research employs an interpretivist approach and takes the form of a reception analysis of participant responses to the Intersexions episodes, and particularly from the media-culturalist perspective and media-materialist approach.

Abstract [sv]

Det tog 50 år innan internet började att mer allmänt användas. Femtio år tog det också för radion och televisionen. Hur skall man få en överblick och distans till det globala fenomen som just nu pågår och som vi alla är en del av? Ett sätt är att placera de nuvarande händelserna i ett längre perspektiv. Att dra trådarna bakåt och försöka se internet i ett något större sammanhang, för att både kunna upptäcka vad som är gemensamt med äldre medier och vad som är unikt för just internet.

Spår och spridning är de två nyckelord som fångar de olika perspektiv som författarna representerar. Humanistiska och samhällsvetenskapliga perspektiv, samtida och flydda tiders medieanvändning, i arkiv, film och i pressen. Nätet som både politisk arena och vardaglig förströelse. Hur ska vi se på det fenomen som vi kallar internet?

Abstract [en]

Dom över död man (eng. Doom over dead man; 2012) the award-winning Swedish-Norwegian film about Torgny Segerstedt, directed by Jan Troell, raises the question about the Swedish resistance against Nazism during the thirties. Torgny Segerstedt, editor of Göteborgs Handels- och Sjöfarts tidning GHT, (1872-1973) during World War II, has been praised for its defence of free speach.  Another critical voice, although not as well known, came from the editor Kaj Andersson in the Socialdemokratiska kvinnoförbundets, SSKF monthly magazine Morgonbris (1904- --). She used the modern photography  and photomontage as a rhetorical weapon in the anti-fascist criticism as well as in supporting the modern welfare state. She arranged a consumer campaign to modernize the Swedish homes and stimulate consumption. A comparison with an American dito is discussed. Studies of how women communicated politics via their magazines may bring new aspects of twentieth century publicity, thus a call is made for a more comprehensive study of research. A first step would be to scrutinize the various genre names in the archives and bibliographies, which obscures the field.

Abstract [sv]

Bilder av Bergslagen, denna region utan fasta gränser, som sägs utgöra grunden inte bara för Sveriges utan hela Europas välstånd, vilar i bruksarkiv och i privata fotosamlingar men också i rumsliga iscensättningar av tidigare industrimiljöer. Men även i människors attityder och åsikter. I den här antologin skärskådas regionens gränser och idealiseringen av den vallonska invandringen; flyttmönstren och myterna om Bergslagens ungdom korrigeras; holländarnas och västeråsarnas relation till trakten undersöks liksom kvinnornas företagsamhet; i några essäer diskuteras idrotten, upplevelseindustrin och filosofiska aspekter på vad som gör en plats till en plats.

De 15 författarna från högskolor och universitet i Bergslagen diskuterar föreställningar om Bergslagen i ljuset av aktuell forskning inom olika områden som medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap, informationsdesign, kulturgeografi, ekonomisk-historia m.m. Boken vänder sig även till läsare utanför akademierna och kan bli en utmärkt reskamrat vid utflykter i trakter, där förändringen från tung industri till kultur- och naturturism blir allt påtagligare för varje år.Fram träder Bergslagen är rikligt illustrerad.
