"I'm going to see the folks I dig"

Come may, I’m off to California¬†(also, this)¬†– this year’s ICA conference takes place in San Diego, and I will be¬†involved in two ways. First, I will take part in the Journalism Studies Division preconference Ph.D. workshop. Second, I will present my ongoing work on political uses of Instagram for the Political Communication division. Besides conferencing, […]

ECREA 2016

Just got back from Prague and the 2016 European Communication Conference, arranged by ECREA¬†(yes, that’s me presenting in the picture above. Thanks to¬†Carlota M. Moragas¬†for providing the picture). Besides participating as commentator in the Journalism Studies Division PhD Student pre-conference workshop, I kept busy with a series of presentations – abstracts available below:

Learning by Failing […]

AoIR 2016


Just got back from Berlin, where the¬†Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society and the¬†Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research¬†hosted this years annual conference of the Association of Internet Researchers – AoIR 2016. This year saw me presenting a paper that must be considered a bit off the common track for yours truly. Specifically,¬†I […]

Business and Pleasure

I’m in Edinburgh to catch a show with a truly unique band – Magma. If you care about music, you need to give this a listen. Tomorrow, its off to Oxford and the 2016¬†Internet, Politics, and Policy (IPP) conference, where I will present a study on the use of Twitter and Instagram during the 2015 […]

Big in Japan

EDIT: May 14th: Following surgery due to a particularly nasty burst appendix, I will not be able to travel to ICA after all. A shame, but doctor’s orders are doctor’s orders. I am currently recuperating at home.

Apologies for the title of this post, I simply couldn’t resist. Nevertheless, when¬†the smoke cleared after what some referred […]

Phoenix, AoIRizona

The picture above was taken by yours truly at¬†the Desert Botanical Gardens, right outside of Phoenix, Arizona (or perhaps AoIRizona), site for the 2016 Association of Internet Researchers conference. This time around, I played a part in co-organizing two events together with Axel Bruns from Queensland University of Technology. First, I chaired and presented in […]

NordMedia in Copenhagen

Last week saw the biannual NordMedia conference go down in Copenhagen, gathering the bulk of media and communication researchers from the nordic countries. I had the pleasure of presenting two papers. The first (co-authored with Christian Christensen) deals with the uses of social media by the Swedish public service broadcaster, SVT, during the 2014 elections. […]


I have just returned home from a week spent in Z√ľrich as a participant in the¬†New Perspectives on Populist Political Communication¬†workshop and launch event of the COST Early Stage Researchers Think Tank, neatly organized by Sven Engesser and¬†Nayla Fawzi. This was a chance for me to relate more clearly to a topic I’ve been approaching […]

Seattle once again

The annual ICA conference is an important meeting place for communication scholars around the world, and given the results of the review process that were distributed yesterday, I will have the opportunity to once again present some of my ongoing research at this years meeting. This year, the conference is held in Seattle, a city […]
