Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, grade: 5,0/1,0, University of Helsinki (Communications), course: Nordic Media and Communication, language: English, comment: Das Finnische Notensystem geht von 5-1, wobei 5 die beste Note ist und 1 noch genugend ist dh eine 5 enspricht einer Schweizerischen 6 bzw. einder Deutschen 1., abstract: Finland belongs to a list of countries that Hallin and Mancini place in the group of the 'Democratic Cororatist' model. (quoted after Hovden 2009, p.149; Hujanen 2009, p. 2) The central elements of this group are high newspaper circulation, strong professionalism and state intervention. They rose from a history of "early democratization, consensus-based governments, a history of democratic corporatism and a strong welfare state." (quoted after Hovden 2009, p.149) These elements show clearly when taking a look at the Finnish history. Newspapers were born as political organs around 1900. 1917 Finland declared its independence and the welfare state has been built up until today. The era of newspapers as political organs ended only at the end of the 1990s and was followed by a non-political news policy. In combination to this change, in the 1950s the development of commercial media markets began and continues until today. One of the consequences of this was that the newspapers owned by media chains have to fulfil profit expectations. (Hujanen 2009, p.2) Finland has had different media eras, but the question is which cycle we are experiencing now? The media landscapes everywhere are moving, being discussed and worried about- therefore it might be the 'era of change and challenges'. Like Ann Axelsson says, "the only certainty in our industry [the newspaper industry, A/N] is the incertitude." (Das Magazin 2009)

What does it mean when images of refugees’ plight are shared on social media? Or when we respond to emotive NGO fundraising campaigns, or are heartened by do-good reality TV shows? Do these narratives offer incentives for genuine social change or only momentary feelings of individual satisfaction? Drawing on social theory, political economy and cultural studies, Media Solidarities explores the way in which media can both enable and obstruct meaningful bonds of solidarity and positive social change. Written in a highly approachable style, it ties theory to contemporary world events and media discourses through a series of examples and case studies. The book offers an analytical toolkit to critically understand media narratives of representation, participation and production and to challenge our perceptions of our selves and society. It will be fascinating reading for students in media and communications, politics, sociology, human geography and cultural studies.

Wie beeinflussen digitale Medien Erkenntnisprozesse? Lässt sich angesichts der Integration von digitalen Medien in den Hochschulalltag von einem digital turn sprechen? Wie können sie genutzt werden, um Lehr- bzw. Lernumgebungen zu schaffen, die kritisch, kreativ und innovativ Wissensgenerierungsprozesse sowie neue Denk- und Handlungsspielräume ermöglichen und unterstützen? Aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven werden in diesem Band auch die Potenziale und Grenzen von Social Media untersucht. Diese werden dabei im Zusammenhang mit der neoliberalen Logik und kommerziellen Dominanz von Unternehmen wie z. B. Google, Microsoft oder Facebook betrachtet. Ebenfalls analysiert werden in diesem Kontext die Protestbewegung der Studierenden an der Universität Wien 2009 und die Interventionen des digital vernetzten Kollektivs Anonymous. Die Untersuchungen verweisen auf die Entwicklung neuer Repräsentations- und Identifikationspraktiken, um Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Demokratie einzufordern.
