My paper on the uses of interactive features on Swedish newspaper web sites has been published online at Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies. This was the first paper I wrote as part of my PhD work, and so it is especially satisfying to see it published. Otherwise, I’m gearing up for a spring semester full of travel, research, teaching and music. Here’s what I know so far:
- I’ll be presenting my ongoing work with Hallvard Moe on Twitter use during Scandinavian elections at the NETworked 2012 conference later in january, at the 9th Scandinavian Workshop on E-government (SWEG 2012) in february and at the ICA-sponsored CMN2012: Communicating in a World of Norms conference in march.
- I’ve been invited to hold two seminars the Department of Informatics and at qumu, both at Umeå University and both at the end of february
- In april, I’ll be going to Oslo to present part of my dissertation work at the 2012 International Symposium on Media Innovations.
That’s it, I think. More important, perhaps, is the fact that I’ll probably be defending my PhD thesis come may or june of this year. It’ll all become clearer during the next couple of weeks.
