    Delivery number D2.1: Datasheets for SandS Motherboard and Modules2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The scope of deliverable 2.1 is to create a series of datasheets for the different hardware designs created for the SandS project members to prototype connected appliances. These designs are part of the work made by Arduino during Workpackage 2 and set the ground for the different partners to understand how the different electronic blocks can be used as part of SandS work.

    This deliverable will be complemented by D2.2, which will focus more on the software that can be created to control different types of appliances, as well as in a series of practical documents to help the partners getting started in using the modules described in D2.1.

    This deliverable is a compendium of:

    1. different datasheets for each one of the modules created
    2. a datasheet for the SandS motherboad
    3. a document describing the communication protocol between the modules
    4. a folder with the firmware created for all the modules

    Light Angle Influence: Designing an interactive research tool2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Lighting design is an important factor in media such as games, movies and interior design. Interaction design thinking is not always the priority when designing a space with light. The user oriented terms of thinking should be more of a standard for the designer, enabling them to create the highest possible experience for the beholder when viewing a scene with a light set-up. This paper will explain the online test tool I have created, the design process behind it, and how I used it in the search for peoples emotional responses to different light angles projected onto humans or objects. The tool consists of a single face, five tasks and one light source. The light source is moved freely around the face and the tasks given are interpreted individually by each user. An example of one task is: Design a devil! There is no right or wrong when designing, it is completely up to each test person how they think a devil look like with only one light source/light angle. The results are mapped out on a “Facemap” to visualize the statistic outcome. The results from user test done with my tool online are analysed and explained how they are used in a study trying to create a new way of thinking when it comes to lighting design. All with the purpose of enhancing lighting design in movies, still images and eventually games. This research and prototype will also support photographers and stage coordinators when creating their sets.

    Emotional Artifacts for Fashion - boosting personal relations to garments2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    I have in this project studied the area of personalized design as a way to create stronger bounds between artifacts and user. The way we relate to what we surround us with is important when we want to expose our personalities and tell who we really are. Today, in a world of mass-production, design and production seldom occurs at the same place. It feels like we are gliding away from the way we were connected to our things in the past. When we needed new cupboards for the kitchen, we went to the local carpenter and let him design and produce what we needed. The clothes were brought from travelling vendors, produced in the village or made by someone in your family, often with self-made yarn from the family farm’s sheep. We often had a connection to what we owned in another way than today. People knew exactly where their possessions came from, what material had been used and where that material had grown. I have within this project investigated how to create that personal connection to an artifact and adapt it to the contemporary. To achieve this I have looked into the different kinds of invisible information that our bodies contain. Information that is produced by numerous processes all the time, which we may not think about. I’ve been studying how people react when their inner processes are visualized through usage tests, exhibitions and finally interviews. The result is a concept I call Emotional Artifacts. The concept is describing how the idea of personalized fashion can be realized. A prototype has been built to show some of the possibilities with this kind of design that, with certain rules and ground sets, is generated by the user and later applied to different media.

    Challenging the international peacebuilding evaluation discourse with qualitative methodologies2012In: Evaluation and Program Planning, ISSN 0149-7189, E-ISSN 1873-7870, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 148-153Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Monitoring and evaluating international peacebuilding efforts has become more sophisticated over the past years, but still relies on managerial approaches that often do not capture the complexity of war, peace and the grey areas in between. The article argues that organisations should embrace qualitative approaches more widely and introduces ethnographic vignettes as one example to explain the complexity of post-conflict situations. By understanding the personal dimension, the life- and work-styles of international peacebuilders, the current evaluation discourse can become more meaningful-both for organisational learning and sustainable peace efforts on the ground. The article ends by highlighting some approaches that deserve more attention and that promise to help to critically enhance current and future debates about the evaluation of peacebuilding.

    From Social Movement to Ritualized Conference Spaces: The Evolution of Peace Research Professionalism in Germany2016In: Peace and Change, ISSN 0149-0508, E-ISSN 1468-0130, Vol. 41, no 3, p. 302-328Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article employs anthropological ritual theory and the concepts of symbolism and liminality to provide a theoretical framework for analyzing ethnographic insights into the academic peace research community in Germany. Using secondary sources for a broader historical outline, I analyze the evolution of peace research discourses in Germany from the beginnings as a new social movement to a contemporary professionalized policy space in which knowledge discourses are (re)produced. Academic conferences and the routines around presenting theoretical papers have become institutionalized by the ritual dynamics of a small group of organizers and venues, fostering “indoor rituals” that represent transformations of the activities of the “outdoor” peace movement that was active in postwar Germany for many decades.

    Performing Peace-building: Conferences, Rituals and the Role of Ethnographic Research2014In: IDS Bulletin, ISSN 0265-5012, E-ISSN 1759-5436, Vol. 45, no 2-3, p. 18-28Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores performance and ritual theory in the context of anthropological research on peace-building institutions and knowledge discourses, as well as the process of writing up an ethnographic PhD thesis. Based on fieldwork in Germany and Nepal, the article’s aim is to expand the theoretical scope of ‘aidnography’ and apply it to knowledge management, workshops, global conferences and the author’s performance in these spaces. The article analyses how a potentially critical and contested concept such as liberal peace-building has been absorbed by an emerging ritual economy of indoor events, policy papers and transnational actors. These strategies of organisational and professional self-promotion create depoliticised action and products in the context of global aid chain management

    The Fragility of Peacebuilding In Nepal2009In: Peace Review, ISSN 1040-2659, E-ISSN 1469-9982, Vol. 21, no 1, p. 54-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In some strange and paradoxical way the rapid ‘success’ of peacebuilding that the UN has been proclaiming in Kathmandu seems to be another blow to the Western model of peacebuilding: The transition from war to peace is proceeding quite smoothly and the political institutions in the capital city are undergoing significant transformation yet this transition has yet to make a difference in the lives of most citizens and for the overall‘development’ of Nepal. In some ways, the current changes remind of the post-1990situation where a newly democratized Nepal produced a ‘good governance bubble’ in Kathmandu, but was unable to address many problems and grievances that finally led to the violent conflict. Prescribing more of the ‘status quo ante’ medicine as many donors and international aid organizations continue to do is another sign of the lack of historical and institutional memory that development not only in Nepal suffers from. In other words, isn’tt he very success of the political transformation a sign that peacebuilding may create stability on the surface, but at the same time fail to achieve its ultimate goal even under favourable conditions: To contribute to long-term, sustainable development and broad‘poverty reduction’ in the post-conflict environment?

    Countering the Risks of Vocationalisation in Master’s Programmes in International Development2015In: Learning and Teaching, ISSN 1755-2273, E-ISSN 1755-2281, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 72-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We review the ontological and pedagogical origins of International Development graduate education in the context of increasing pressures to ‘professionalise’ graduate curricula. We apply Giroux’s concept of ‘vocationalisation’ to argue that professionalisation risks undermining the field’s intellectual foundations in an elusive quest to equip students with functional rather than intellectual skills. Acknowledging ever-growing competition among graduates for gainful employment in this sector, we argue that instructors of International Development should recommit to the field’s reflective tradition by creating spaces for transformative education and develop a repoliticised ethos that critically engages global capitalism

    Social Media and Global Development Rituals: a content analysis of blogs and tweets on the 2010 MDG Summit2013In: Third World Quarterly, ISSN 0143-6597, E-ISSN 1360-2241, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 405-422Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Social media content generated by web logs (‘blogs’) and Twitter messages (‘tweets’) constitute new types of data that can help us better understand the reproduction of global rituals in the context of international development policies and practice. Investigating the United Nations High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGS), a three-day event held at UN Headquarters in New York in2010, as a case study, we examine a sample of 108 blog entries discussing the meeting, as well as 3007 related tweets. We find that topics receiving the densest coverage mirrored existing priorities as defined by the MDGS. Although most blog entries created content which, in contrast to tweets, went beyond spreading mere factual or referential information on the event and even included some critical commentary, sustained debates did not emerge.Our findings suggest that social media content accompanying the Summit reproduced global development rituals and thus failed to catalyse alternative priorities for and approaches to international development.

    TED Talks on International Development: Trans-Hegemonic Promise and Ritualistic Constraints2015In: Communication Theory, ISSN 1050-3293, E-ISSN 1468-2885, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 166-187Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents the first theoretical and empirical investigation of TED talks in the context of Communication for Development (C4D). We analyze both the content and structure of talks on international development by leveraging definitions of C4D as well as literature on mediatization, rituals in international relations, and online activism. Our findings suggest that TED talks succeed in disseminating ideas and sparking public interest. At the same time, they reflect institutionalized, corporatized modes of mass communication rooted in elitist discourses and practices. Contrary to popular perceptions, we conclude that while TED talks are an effective vehicle for information dissemination, they are an unlikely catalyst for social change.

    Abstract [en]

    Peacebuilding presents a formidable challenge to anthropology, because it 'enframes' our contemporary world in particular ways. In our introduction to the special section on peacebuilding and anthropology we highlight the changing relationship between peace, conflict, culture and academic writing and how the three articles on Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and India-Pakistan address the changing relationships. The articles do not have the intention to present a coherent statement where anthropology 'is' in relation to peace and conflict studies. Each of them engages with a different aspect of the discipline and broader question beyond ethnographic fieldwork.

    Writing weblogs (blogs) has become a substantial part of how development is discussed on the Internet. Based on experiences as blogger, this article is an exploratory case study to approach the impact of blogging on reflective writing, work practices as well as knowledge management. Based on research with development bloggers and the authors' own social media practice, the article undertakes an analysis of bloggers’ motivations and the potential as well as limitations of blogs for different sectors of the industry, for example in academia,inside aid organisations and in understanding expatriate aid workers. Finally, the article explores the question of whose voice is represented in blogs

    Pretend that it is Real! Convergence Culture in Practice2011Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Media convergence has mainly been defined and explained as a technological and industrial phenomenon; as the process where new technologies are accommodated by existing media and communication industries and their cultures of production. One consequence of convergence in today’s hybrid media landscape is that the previously distinct borders between production and consumption have become blurred. This means that convergence also takes place as a bottom-up social process initiated by media users that move almost anywhere and everywhere in search of entertainment experiences of their liking. This thesis sheds light on the different types of media convergence that took place in the process of making the transmedia storytelling production Sanningen om Marika. The Swedish public service provider, SVT, and the pervasive games upstart company, The company P, combined their expertise in broadcasting and games development to craft this ‘participation drama’. During five months in 2007, the production offered Swedes nationwide rich possibilities to interact and participate, or just to watch or lurk on the production’s various platforms. Using an ethnographic approach, field studies were conducted throughout the design, implementation and production phases. The analysis shows that even if instances of convergence could be identified, the collaboration did not proceed smoothly. The companies’ different media logics with their differing cultures of production created tensions and frictions. The different logics of television, internet and games - different in quality demands and with different audience participation models - made it difficult to create a hybrid production. Television genres blurred fiction and facts, and the ordinary was blurred with activities of games and play in the production, making the audience reception and interpretations differ extensively. Lastly, the designed audience participation did not remove the asymmetrical relationship between producers and users in media, but instead highlighted issues of hierarchies, lack of participant empowerment and inequality between participants.

    Memorie, supporting the practices of memory in the graveyard2007Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Due to its sensitive nature, the graveyard is often an avoided problem space within the field of design. This becomes evident from the lack of exploration and analysis in this domain. Anyhow, it represents an opportunity to test how design can mediate between sacred places, technology and people. Moreover, as a very specific context, the graveyard encompasses peculiar ways of interacting and experiencing space that deserve to be taken into account. This work discusses the notions of space and place and how the field of interaction design can benefit from them. In doing so, it investigates the hidden dimensions of the graveyard that make it a complex structure where spatial, personal and socio-cultural dimensions are intertwined. While the fieldwork aims at analysing the graveyard in its different tones of meaning (identity, memorial, cultural differences, on-site interaction) the focus of the work are the practices of memory and the role that the past has in our relation with the deceased. The result of the design process is an interactive audio system composed of a playback circuit based on Arduino and boxed into a seashell. The device is designed to be placed on the grave and store audio content. Once activated, the audio seashell allows listening and eventually recording vocal traces related to the deceased’s past. Taking into account the observed practices, rules and conventions that shape the graveyard, the role of personal and collective rituals and the meanings of all the identified artifacts, the designed system supports the experience of recalling memories in respect to the atmosphere, tempo and rhythm that characterise the graveyard.

    Fotbollssupport och manlighet - Bilden av fotbollssupportern i den svenska dagspressen2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Fotboll är idag mer än bara en sport. Dess popularitet har sedan starten för lite drygt 100 år sedan, ökat kontinuerligt och därmed även dess betydelse för omvärlden. De senaste decenniernas väldiga kommersiella inslag inom fotbollen har inneburit att samtliga aktörer inom sporten har varit tvungna att anpassa sig inom en ny typ av ”spelplan” och fotbollssupportern är inget undantag. Dessa fotbollssupportrar som säsong efter säsong investerar både sin kropp och själ i vått och torrt, för att kunna följa sitt favoritlag, brukar på senare tid, allt som oftast, även hamna i mediernas uppmärksamhet och i sin tur allmänhetens. Jag har i samband med min forskningsuppsats valt att koncentrera mig på den problematiska bilden av fotbollssupportern i den svenska dagspressen – med särskilt fokus på maskulinitetsperspektivet. Jag har följaktligen valt att koncentrera mig på två negativa supporterhändelser som fick en väldigt stor genomslagskraft bland medierna i allmänhet och dagspressen i synnerhet. Dessa två händelser uppstod i samband med de allsvenska fotbollsmatcherna mellan AIK och Hammarby på Råsunda den 18 oktober 2004 och mellan Hammarby och Djurgården på Söderstadion den 28 augusti 2006. Då mitt empiriska material enbart består av nyhetsartiklar och krönikor har jag valt att använda mig av en textanalytisk metod i min forskningsstudie. Eftersom jag går in och granskar samt tolkar artiklarnas och krönikornas olika texter och ställer de olika skrifterna mot varandra och därtill kopplar dem vidare till ett annat sammanhang, så fann jag denna metod mest lämplig. Det man kan konstatera utifrån min undersökning är att medier tillsammans med specifika delar av den akademiska världen har benägenhet att koncentrera sig på de negativa och extraordinära aspekterna i samband med fotbollssupport, till exempel i form av huliganism eller fanatism. Den svenska dagspressen tenderar på så sätt att överdriva bilden av fotbollssupportern, då de ideligen fokuserar på den extremt negativa avbildningen i samband med fotbollssupport. Ett annat konstaterande i samband med min analys är att manliga sociala konstruktioner uppkommer och formas i samband med fenomenet fotbollssupport. Det man kan fastställa är att fotbollssupport ger mannen en möjlighet att i lugn och ro hänge sig åt sina känslobehov i den offentliga sfären utan att det på något sätt ska anses som vekligt eller omanligt i samband med samhällets konstruerade mansideal. I samband med min analys kan jag således konstatera att många män också använder sig av fotbollssupport för att till exempel leva ut samhällets konstruerade mansideal i form av företeelser som aggressivitet och lojalitet tillsammans med andra individer av samma kön.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper looks into the problems that result from using stereotypical figures in storytelling that are taken from historical contexts. The paper focusses on the mythification of Nationalsocialism and German atrocities of WW II by using Nazi-figures in non-historic contexts. The difference between Heritage and History is looked on in the context of character design in comics (where e.g. NaziNinjaZombies are used) and their connection to collective memory.

    Comic-Analyse2011 (ed. 2., überarbeitete Auflage)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Comics narrate visually: all information on situations and their aspects, on their development is communicated visually, including all those aspects of our environment which usually are invisible like sound, spoken words and often even thoughts. The textlayer enhances thus the references of the images. On the other hand, texts often lack details which are contained or refered to in the images. The book discusses all elements within comics separately and looks at their interaction that is storytelling in ccomics.

    Abstract [en]

    The paper sketches the impossibility to tell stories without interfering with collective memory. By focussing on examples that refer to Nazi-Germany, the process of mythisation of historical issues is explained. Genrally, there is no escape from mythisation of figures in popular storytelling: All dealings with specific topics are influenced by the usage of related symbols and the establishment of certain theme-derived stereotypes. To explain e.g. historical living conditions and the erosion and perversion of social values in Nazi-Germany and similar racist-chauvinistic ideologies becomes more and more difficult as one has to contradict firmly established stereotypes and patterns of storytelling.

    Comics at University: Institution Meets Fringe: Experiments with Narrative Forms2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper looks at experiments on narrative forms that partly challenge and even change our understanding of what "comics" are and what might be described as mixed media storytelling. Not only digital comics but also analogue forms constantly experiment on and expand formal and narrative options, partly including elements of other narrative media, partly developing other forms of presenting sequential visual storytelling on paper. The growing bandwidth of forms results in growing options to use comics for: not only fictional but also non-fictional issues are communicated more and more in comics formats. It is our experience that students who take comics courses are experts on only a small section of the existing comics' uses. They neither are familiar with the full bandwidth of uses nor with the narrative possibilities that rest in the elements of comics. Experimenting with the formal and narrative options systematically does constantly widen their understanding of the potential of comics and their ability to apply this knowledge. Based on a few examples that develop comics further, the benefits of interlinking theory and praxis in comics-education are reflected on critically.

    Comics for the Blind and for the Seeing2014In: International Journal of Comic Art, ISSN 1531-6793, Vol. 16, no 1, p. 458-476Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses comics for the Blind, based on the example of life by Philipp Meyer. It looks into the potential and the restrictions of sequential pictorial storytelling that is accessible for blind readers. Special attention is given to the elements of comics' narratives and the technical background of tactile text and image representation.

    Die Vermittlung von Zusammenhängen und Handlungsfolgen mit Hilfe beweglicher Elemente2013In: Wissen durch Bilder: Sachcomics als Medien von Bildung und Information / [ed] Urs Hangartner, Felix Keller, Dorothea Oechslin, Transcript Verlag, 2013, p. 313-329Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In information comics and other "Sachcomics" images are used to communicate information. Focus is set on the explanation of consequences of actions or states of being in the process of assembly, use etc. of artefacts, but also of illnesses and social developments and other issues. The article describes and discusses different options of moving or movable / changeable images - mostly due to paper mechanics and sliding devices - including pop-up books.

    Abstract [en]

    The paper discusses the use of visual formats and the differences between webcomics and digital comics to describe their inclusion of other media as these have consequences not only on the composition, but also on the reception of comics. In difference to web/online comics and digital comics, the group of download comics is introduced. My aim is to describe the currently existing formats in digital comics and start the discussion of their imprint on dramaturgy, storytelling techniques and traditions, as the formats do of course influence the reading process. Also it has to be asked, whether we are witnessing the establishment of a new literary form which is neither film nor comic nor audio storytelling.

    Experiments in comics storytelling2015In: Studies in Comics, ISSN 2040-3232, E-ISSN 2040-3240, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 157-167Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper looks at several examples of experimentation on comics-storytelling, which are results of various comics-courses at Malmö University, where a combination of comics-theory and practice is mandatory. All examples use the particularity of sequencing images as their starting points but continue into quite different areas. While the options available in digital materials are attracting most attention, others focus on expanding on the conventions of printed sequential storytelling.

    Experiments in digital comics: somewhere between comics and multimedia storytelling2015Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper looks at a few experiments on comics-storytelling in digital comics. The paper starts with introducing aspects from media psychology and research on technical documentation to look into the narrative and graphic structure of comics and touches on the characteristics of digital media before focusing on specific examples in more details.

    Re-enactments of historical seafaring between experimental archaeology and constructions of identity2013In: Journal of Maritime Research, ISSN 1697-4840, E-ISSN 1697-9133, Vol. X, no 1, p. 59-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Paper looks into the specific ways of dealing with the past in re-enactments of historical sea-journeys, e.g. journeys of discovery. They, like other forms of re-enactments, are experiments in documenting and reflecting on historic conditions of life. Beyond that, re-enactments generate memories and connect historic topics to the present. There is a poignant difference between re-enactments that try to establish a more precise understanding of specific historic constructions, maintenance, or usages and those that focus on emotional understanding of past events and their meaning for today's culture.

    Reflections on the arbitrariness of regional boat-forms2017In: Nautical Research Journal, ISSN 0738-7245, Vol. 62, no 3, p. 189-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When describing specific forms of boats, it is quite often that their particular form is argued for as a response to specific local conditions, to locally particular wind, water or e.g. rocky shores etc. Looking at research on several examples of boats from Scandinavia, these narratives of need for regional adaptation do not hold fully. Local forms have existed alongside imported designs, which were not made to fit the particular local needs but served the purpose well, even though. And both forms were kept continually. The sucessful co-existence of traditional local forms and of imported different forms shows that the emergence of extremely specialised boat-designs in specific places must have other reasons than just their adaption to these environments. The demise of local forms to todays’ mass-produced non-localised forms shows that their advantage cannot have been that strong, as they would have survived stronger otherwise. Regional need for very specific boat-forms seems to be a narrative convention linked to folklore and aesthetic style preferences, i.e. it is caused by the need to express local identities rather than by local restrictions of usability.

    Reinforcing Local Identities Through Landmarks and Their Representations in En-passant-media: The Special Case of the Angel of the North2016In: English Topographies in Literature and Culture: Space, Place, and Identity / [ed] Ina Habermann, Daniela Keller, Brill Academic Publishers, 2016Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The public sphere is filled with officially planned and sanctioned but also with non-sanctioned signs that represent local or regional culture: landmark buildings and developments compete with sub-cultural markers like graffiti, tattoos, and even messages on textiles (the group of en-passant-media). The official construction of place-images and the non-directed expressions of identity complement each other as both show processes of canonisation of motives. Town planning works with developing areas around landmark buildings and attractions, which are promoted by place marketing as focal points. They are designed to trigger developments and to influence the image of places. On the other hand, messages on walls, on textiles and the bearer's skin itself, on busses and cars give information on popular interests and style-preferences. Their references can be read as indicators of importance that themes, motives, and issues are credited with by the public. they can be understood as a kind of vox populi that can be (but not always is) independent of place marketing and other mass medial discourse. Like landmarks, but in a very different way, they represent places and their cultures, too. This paper argues for combining the analysis of visual representations of town planning and of public communications using en-passant-media as recording and analysing them allows for a more differentiated understanding of cultural agendas.

    Sequential Images, the Page, and Narrative Structures2015In: International Journal of Comic Art, ISSN 1531-6793, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 561-571Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Not only digital but also analogue formats constantly experiment and expand on formal and narrative options. These experiments help to understand how individual elements and layers within comics work, whether they need to be used in the established ways or whether they can be manipulated further. Experimenting on formal and narrative options of comics systematically widens the understanding of the way comics narrate – and as a result, those who experiment become better analysts of comics, they learn about visual and textual communication of all kinds of issues – of representations of cultures. Also, their ability grows to apply this knowledge on productions of their own and onto those by other creators. While most mainstream comics and graphic novels carefully stay on established ground in regards to visual and textual construction and narration of the narrative and its individual stages, other digital and analogue comics constantly experiment on formal and narrative options for comics. By analysing and adapting the existing forms of comics, by experimenting with formal and narrative options, the understanding of the potential of comics and the ability to apply this knowledge is widened. For people, who are working in the field of comics storytelling, as well drawing as texting, a sound knowledge of the standards and options is obviously desirable.

    Teaching comics at university2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The understanding of Malmö as some kind of "comics capital" always built on the understanding that interaction and communications - influences on the national and international level are essential if such a role was to be filled in a meaningful way. At university level, research into comics and teaching of comics courses has been situated in the context of visual communication and cultural studies first, but has been picked up by media and literary studies. Of course, these disciplines have different perspectives on comics but develop some common understanding of the matter despite different terminology etc. The presentation focuses on the understanding of comics as cultural capital in academia and on teaching comics in higher education as element of Malmö's comics environment.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses the design of things. This is done in an attempt to conceptually explore some of the political and practical challenges to participatory design today. Which things, and which participants? The perspective is strategic and conceptual. Two approaches are in focus, participatory design (designing for use before use) and meta-design (designing for design after design). With this framing the challenge for professional design to participate in public controversial things is considered.

    The End of the User: The Computer as a Thing2013In: End-User Development: 4th International Symposium, IS-EUD 2013, Copenhagen, Denmark, June 10-13, 2013. Proceedings, Springer, 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We may all agree on the importance of end users, as in end user programming, human centred design or user driven innovation. But are there theoretical limits with political implications to this anthropocentric understanding of our engagement with users, technology and the artifacts we call computers? Has the end user been patronised by contemporary progressive design and taken hostage by neo-liberal capitalism? In sociology it is becoming clear that society is not just social, but also material. The neglected objects strike back. Just think of global environmental crises. With design research it might be just the same. We know design cannot be reduced to the shaping of dead objects, as in object oriented programming, but humans are neither users living external to objects. Where sociology have had to acknowledge that society is a collective of humans and non-humans, design might have to do away with both users and objects to remain socially and politically relevant. This talk explores the consequences of replacing the object and the user with the thing. Etymologically the thing was originally not an objective matter, but a political assembly dealing with matters of concern. Which humans and non-humans should be invited to participate in contemporary design things? Who invites? Who is marginalised or excluded? What issues should be dealt with? Which designarly and parliamentary technologies should be invoked in prototyping futures? If the computer is to become a controversial thing, is that a well-grounded end of the user?
