Stina Bengtsson


I am professor of Media and Communication Studies. My research revolves around the role of the media in everyday life. I study, from various points of views and with different research methods, how the media - as technologies, artefacts, texts and cultural norms - are negotiated and fit into daily life. I focus upon taste and power dimensions, ethics and morality, as well as the routines and rituals surrounding our - increasingly automated - life with and in the media today.
