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 Zürich 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 […]

Presenting in Oslo










This morning I presented part of my Phd thesis work during the International Symposium on Media Innovations at the University of Oslo, Norway. As the picture (source here) shows, there was a panel discussion afterwards – that’s me second from the left, way back in the shadows.

Looking forward to Phoenix

Just booked my flight tickets to go to the annual ICA conference – this time taking place in Phoenix, AZ, at the end of may. Last year’s Boston ICA was my first experience with this huge conference – there are just too many interesting sessions going on to be able to catch them all. This […]

Internet Research 12

Yesterday, I got back home from the 12th Internet Research conference. Just in time to see one of my favorite guitarists Kurt Rosenwinkel play a show here in Uppsala, by the way. Following last years conference in Gothenburg, IR12 was held in Seattle – a city I had never visited before. I quite liked the […]

NordMedia 2011

I’m at the University of Akureyri in Iceland for the NordMedia 2011 conference. This truly is a beautiful country – I could tell from flying in from Reykjavik. With both of my presentations done, I’m looking forward to my flight home tomorrow… It feels like I haven’t been home for ages. If you ever visit […]

In Helsinki for ECIS 2011

Just arrived in Helsinki for participation ECIS 2011. Last year, I had the opportunity to attend the ECIS doctoral consortium when it was hosted in South Africa – this year, the conference is in Finland… A little bit closer to Sweden. My presentation was originally scheduled for the session starting at 11.00 today. However, since […]

Noam Chomsky at ICA 2011

Noam Chomsky delivering the closing adress at ICA 2011. To sum up, you might say that Chomsky has essentially given the same speech for 40 years now. It’s a good speech though – and, unfortunately, continuously necessary.

Off to ICA... or?

I’m at Arlanda Airport, waiting for my flight to Boston, by way of Reykjavik. The last couple of days have been interesting – the ashcloud generated by the icelandic volcano Grímsvötn has kept me on my toes as to whether or not I would be able to get to Boston and the ICA conference. As […]
