Välkomna till ett högre seminarium samarrangerat av Medie- och kommunikationsvetenskapsämnet och Religionsvetenskapsämnet vid Södertörns Högskola. Seminariet hålls på skandinaviska.

Knut Lundby: Religion i medienes grep. Medialisering i Norge

Knut Lundby vil presentere sin nye bok om Religion i medienes grep. Medialisering i Norge. Religion er omstridt. Færre tror på Gud, og oppslutningen om organisert religion går tilbake. Samtidig er religion godt synlig i mediebildet. Men oppfatninger av religion i offentligheten endres under medienes omformende innflytelse. Denne medialiseringen av religion belyses med materiale og eksempler fra 1970 til 2020, fra kringkastingsmonopolet i Norge til dagens globale overvåkingskapitalisme og digitale kamp om oppmerksomhet. Boken analyserer betingelser og rammer for religion i møte med endringer i medieteknologi og mediebruk. Samtidig er religion et prisme for den allmenne, brede og akselerende medialiseringen i Norge gjennom femtiårsperioden. Lundby konkluderer ut fra sine konkrete, historiske case, at det er nødvendig å nyansere generelle teorier om medialisering.

Knut Lundby er professor emeritus i medievitenskap ved Institutt for medier og kommunikasjon, Universitetet i Oslo. Hans doktorgrad er i religionssosiologi.

Fredrik Stiernstedt: Free Churches of the Air: The History of Community Radio in Sweden

Swedish community radio started in 1979 and was the first type of broadcast to be organised outside of the public service monopoly that had been in operation since 1924. This article unveils some of the aspects of the history of Swedish community radio. Through analysis of first-hand sources from the period between 1979 and 1985, the article sheds new light on the history of Swedish community radio by using the archives from the parliamentary committee setting up community radio, public inquiries, parliamentary minutes and other sources of political discourse The analysis shows that religious interests, and especially the free churches and the Pentecostal movement, played an important role for establishing community radio. The connections between the religious field and the political field in Sweden were manifold and strong in relation to the development of community broadcasting, which also had a marked effect on how the reform was designed and how it played out. During the early years of community radio, churches dominated the broadcasts, in some cities being responsible for as much as 100% of the content produced. Hence, this article sheds light on a yet untold story of Swedish media history and shows how the interests of religious organisations can be a driving force in the development of media policy and a driver of media change. It also shows that the community broadcasting reform was a catalyst within Swedish Christianity for starting to work systematically with technologies and issues related to the developing media saturated society
