Fra begyndelsen af 1990’erne skete der dybtgående og langsigtede forandringer af mediernes placering i det danske samfund. Internettet, e-mail, web, sociale medier og i stigende grad mobile tjenester blev en fast bestanddel af hverdagen, erhvervslivet og den offentlige forvaltning. Imens fik de gamle medier travlt med at finde deres plads i et digitaliseret og integreret mediemiljø.
Konkurrencen mellem public service og kommercielle radio- og tv-stationer blev videreført online, ligesom dagbladene markedsførte sig gennem netudgaver. Også bogen overlevede, til dels via netsalg og som e-bog, mens ugeblade og magasiner kunne tilbyde flere forskellige slags oplevelser på glittet papir og alle slags skærme. Dansk film fejrede særlige triumfer, ikke blot på verdens festivaler, men også i danske biografer og danske hjem på dvd og gennem streaming. Reklamen var nu mindre et politisk stridspunkt end et kulturelt vilkår på tværs af platforme.
Alligevel stod spørgsmålet tilbage, hvordan indhold på dansk og om Danmark kunne finansieres og formidles i fremtiden.
Igennem hele perioden var internettet det mest konkrete udtryk for den globalisering økonomisk såvel som kulturelt, der med fornyet styrke satte dagsordenen for de danske mediers udvikling.

Dansk mediehistorie 1-4
Dansk mediehistorie fortæller historien om mediernes udvikling i Danmark og giver den første samlede vurdering af deres betydning for dansk kultur.
De fire bind tager udgangspunkt i massemedierne – presse, tidsskrifter, bøger, film, radio, tv, internet – men beskriver også, hvordan massemedierne har spillet sammen med både den dagligdags samtale og de etablerede kunstformer. I medierne mødes det fine med det folkelige og det fremmede med det hjemlige.

PhD om internetbrug i Danmark

PhD scholarship in internet research with a focus on Europe (re-advertisement)

The Department of Media, Cognition, and Communication, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, invites applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship. The successful candidate will be affiliated with the Peoples’ Internet (PIN) project sponsored by the Carlsberg Foundation. The scholarship is expected to begin November 1, 2016, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the project

“The Peoples’ Internet – Market, state, and civil society in China, Europe, and the United States” will undertake a comparative study of the internet in different world regions. Digital networks are among the most flexible and universally applicable technologies ever invented by humans. But the many significant variations in the social uses of the internet around the world remain poorly understood. The PIN project compares the current state and future potential of the internet in three centers of the global economy and world politics – China, Europe, and the United States – focusing on the interplay of civil society with the other two key sectors of modern societies: market and state.

The PhD candidate will be an integral part of the PIN research group. The PhD candidate will participate both in formal project events and in informal deliberations throughout the candidate’s affiliation with the project; will have the opportunity both to pursue personal research interests and to contribute to the overall theoretical and methodological framework of PIN; and will join a wider interdisciplinary research environment centered in the University of Copenhagen’s Center for Communication and Computing and its research group on Digital Communication and Aesthetics. In addition to coursework and other institutional obligations, the PhD candidate will undertake the following main activities:

• six months of ethnographic fieldwork in Denmark
• review of regulatory regimes and cultural traditions in the fieldwork area
• participation in analyses of population surveys
• contributions to the dissemination of project findings and other outreach.

The successful PhD candidate must be fluent in spoken and written academic English, and in Danish. Prior experience with cross-cultural studies and/or survey research within media and communication studies will be considered an advantage, but is not a requirement. It is expected that the successful candidate will be present, part of the research group, and engaged in the activities of PIN on a daily basis. Departing from the PIN project framework, the PhD project description must include:

• a main section outlining preliminary research questions, methodological considerations, and a time schedule for a six-month ethnographic fieldwork in Denmark
• a section identifying preliminary issues to be addressed in a review of regulatory regimes and cultural traditions in Denmark
• a section discussing how insights from the fieldwork may inform and complement the survey component of the PIN project.

The goals of the event are to provide feedback and advice to participating PhD candidates on their in-progress research thesis. Moreover, the doctoral consortium will provide the opportunity to meet experts as well as fellow PhD candidates from different backgrounds working on related topics.

During the consortium, students will be invited to present their work, following which they will receive feedback from their fellow students and faculty participants, all of whom will have read the proposals in advance of the Doctoral Consortium. In addition, at least one faculty participant will be assigned to respond in detail to each proposal. Besides the presentations of proposals, there will also be discussion of other topics such as ethics, research methods, publishing the thesis, and positioning one’s work for the job market.

Submission Process

Applicants must be advanced to candidacy, and have their dissertation proposal topic previously approved by their committee. Ideally, students will be in the early stages of their dissertation, where feedback would be helpful in refining and advancing their work. To apply, students must submit a proposal describing their research.

Submissions must be related to the working area of the Communication and Technology Division of ICA. A description of the division’s primary interests can be found in the last section of this call.

Proposals must identify a significant problem (or problems) in the field of research, briefly outline current knowledge of the problem domain, and clearly formulate a research question, or specify hypotheses to be tested.

Proposals should outline the research approach, methods, and any results obtained so far. Submissions should be between 3000 and 4000 words (excluding references and appendices), and must include name and affiliation of the PhD candidate.

Applications should be accompanied by a short letter of recommendation from the advisor or member of the dissertation committee stating how the PhD candidate can benefit from participation in the Doctoral Consortium.

The proposal and letter of recommendation must be submitted as one PDF document and sent as an attachment in an email to Benjamin Detenber at tdetenber@ntu.edu.sg. The deadline for submission is 1 February 2014. Submitted proposals will be reviewed by the members of the program committee based on significance of research, specificity of research topic and/or questions, clarity of writing, and degree to which student can benefit from expert guidance and feedback.

To help ensure the consortium best meets the needs of its members, limited financial assistance is made possible by the CAT Division. Please note in your application if you would like to be considered for financial support to cover your costs for participation in the CAT Doctoral Consortium (this support would cover only the $75 participation fee and not travel to the conference).

About the Communication and Technology Division within ICA:
The Communication and Technology (CAT) Division is concerned with the role played by Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in the process of communication. It is committed to enhancing theory and methodology pertaining to adoption, usage, effects, and policy of ICTs. Areas of research include human-computer interaction, computer-mediated communication, mobile communication, and other technologically mediated social interaction and networking in all contexts (interpersonal, group, organizational, societal/cultural) and at all levels of analyses. CAT invites papers that make an innovative and original contribution to our understanding of ICTs, with the primary focus on communication aspects of particular technological characteristics. Papers in which technology is not a specific object of investigation but is instead the context or backdrop for a communication study should be directed to other ICA Divisions.

As part of CAT, the Doctoral Consortium welcomes papers that follow any and all disciplinary approaches (psychology, sociology, anthropology, economics, and policy studies, among others) and all methodological orientations (quantitative, qualitative, critical, cultural, historical, legal, and institutional, among others).

Digital data – lost, found, and made — Seminar in Copenhagen, October 16, 2012

Digital data – lost, found, and made

Seminar
Center for Communication and Computing – http://ccc.ku.dk/
University of Copenhagen
Southern Campus, Room 24.4.01
October 16, 2012

Communication on the internet and in other digital media is continuously recording itself – these data are there to be found. They include meta-data – data about data – that carry much information beyond the actual messages that are ”˜sent’ and ”˜received.’ Meta-data situate these messages in relation to their contexts – the source of information, its connections with other items of information, their trajectories across sites and servers, and the local users of the information, who, perhaps, add their own meta-data. At the same time, various other kinds of data must be made in order to account for the place of digital media in social interaction on a global scale. The resulting challenges to research are as massive as the amounts of data involved – what is referred to in both academia and industry as big data.

This seminar brings key contributors to the first decade of internet research to the Copenhagen Center for Communication and Computing in order to address these challenges in an interdisciplinary dialogue. Each presentation is followed by Q&A, and the seminar concludes with a panel debate and plenary discussion.

The seminar is open and free – no registration is required. For further information, please contact Kasper Rasmussen

Preconference on Pragmatism – ICA; Boston 2011

Post-Rorty Pragmatism: The New Wave of Pragmatism in Communication Research
International Communication Association Preconference – Boston, 2011
Sponsored by the Communication History Interest Group and Co-sponsored by the Philosophy of Communication Division

Organizers:
Chris Russill – Carleton University, Canada
Robert Craig – University of Colorado, Boulder, USA
Klaus Bruhn Jensen – University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Mats Bergman – University of Helsinki, Finland
Robert Danisch – Concordia University, Canada

Call For Papers:
Philosophical pragmatism has been a significant substream in the history of ideas as well as in communication research – from John Dewey via Jim Carey to John Durham Peters. The neopragmatist work of Richard Rorty, while widely influential, has remained contested, and has left important contributions of classic pragmatism untapped. Indeed, Richard Rorty’s position of “postmodernist bourgeois liberalism” was, in certain respects, in discord with the committed, communal, and communicative conception of society and politics that is at the heart of the pragmatist legacy. Recently, an article by Mats Bergman (2008) identified a “New Wave of Pragmatism in Communication Studies,” which has returned to the classics, recruiting pragmatism for both theory development and empirical studies of media and communication. This preconference proposes to advance this development and to explore its future potential by involving the wider community of researchers in the ICA. Coordinated by some of the central contributors to the new wave of pragmatism, it invites contributions from across the sections of ICA to an interdisciplinary symposium. The format emphasizes a combination of paper presentations about ongoing theoretical and empirical work with extended discussions, concluding with a panel on the present state and future prospects of pragmatism for the field.
Pragmatism has a very long, a medium long, as well as a short history in the perspective of communication studies. Ancient rhetoric counts as one central influence on modern pragmatism, including its conception of community and democracy. The three classic figures of American pragmatism – Charles Sanders Peirce, George Herbert Mead, William James, and John Dewey – engaged communication, in various ways, as a descriptive and explanatory category. Peirce’s semiotics, for one, fed twentieth-century theory development about communication across the humanities and social sciences. In the last decade, debates on communication theory have returned to pragmatism. The aim of this preconference is to further promote the line of research that examines the relationship between pragmatism and communication first initiated by Peirce, James, and Dewey. Therefore, we invite submissions examining any one of a number of themes to which this relationship draws attention: democratic deliberation, semiotics, communication ethics, media and the public sphere, the importance of face-to-face communication, philosophical foundations of rhetoric, media and communication, and social movements to name just a few. The purpose of this preconference is to showcase the manner in which the intellectual tradition of pragmatism has helped with the advancement of communication scholarship, and to continue to develop communication theory by using the tradition of pragmatism to advance our understanding of key questions in the field. We welcome any papers that aid in either of these tasks.

The preconference will be limited to 40 participants. Dr. Peter Simonson from the University of Colorado-Boulder will be a featured speaker. All events will take place at the conference site; a preconference registration fee will be announced at a later date. A minimum of 15 papers will be selected through a peer-review process. Participants are invited who are interested in reflecting on the preconference´s themes, whether from the sponsoring divisions or beyond.

Submission guidelines
-Preconference will be held on May 26th, 2011.
– Abstracts of no more than 500 words are due by December 15, 2010.
– Submit your abstract via email to Robert Danisch- rdanisch@gsu.concordia.ca – as an MS Word attachment (please use your full name to label the file).
– The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by February 1, 2011
– After the preconference, the coordinating group will explore the possibility of an edited volume on communication research and the pragmatist tradition. Final Papers will be considered for inclusion in this edited volume.

PhD course – Internet Research: New Methodological Challenges and Opportunities

*PhD course – Internet Research: New Methodological Challenges and Opportunities*

Hosting most previous forms of human communication – one-to-one, one-to-many, as well as many-to-many – the internet is a unique kind of medium, a meta-medium (Kay & Richardson, 1977), which users access from stationary as well as mobile platforms. As such, it challenges media and communication studies to think again about relevant and appropriate research methodologies. The internet also provides an opportunity for research to refashion, or reinvent, familiar approaches and instruments.

This PhD course provides an overview of the state of internet research, illustrating the applicability of both new and old methodologies to this field of inquiry. The central contributor to the course will be Professor Steve Jones, University of Illinois at Chicago, the founding president of the Association of Internet Researchers, and a key figure in internet research for more than a decade. Steve Jones is a guest professor of the Danish National Research School for Media, Communication, and Journalism during the spring of 2010.

Vi giver overblik, udblik og fremblik og udforsker:
*Hvordan humaniora har taget it til sig
*Hvad der er humanioras skjulte innovationspotentialer
*Hvad de internationale erfaringer siger
*Hvad det danske erhvervsliv efterspørger

Det sker fredag den 13. november kl. 9.30 – 16.00

Tænk over det!
