Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Media history finds itself confronting the issue of media change at all times. Media change lends itself to a wide variety of perspectives on the meaning of change. My contribution to this panel emphasizes how changes in media usage – often, but not always, associated with the introduction of a new medium – can be linked to disjunctures and continuities in the history of communication study. A careful understanding of these twinned sets of changes is rarely undertaken, though pathbreaking work has been accomplished by Daniel Czitrom, in his Media and the American Mind, and by Brett Gary, in The Nervous Liberals. I will address how media change has come to be registered in the history of communication study. This occurs not only on the level of domain (where communication researchers wind up with new objects of contemplation) but also at the level of theoretical doxa, as communication researchers take certain arrangements in the media as basic building blocks for theory building. I discuss how methods of communication study come to be linked to the media we study, and how media change becomes an implicit component of communication methodology. My analysis takes up the media of print (especially the newspaper), radio, television, and the internet, as they come to be taken up by communication study on all of these registers. Ultimately, a reflexive understanding of communication study must take into consideration how media become much more to us than 'things' we study. They also come to set the ontological and ideological grounds for discussion, and even to shape the terms and tools we come to apply to them.

"Changing media technologies, changing news media logic: Understanding the changing dynamics of the mediatization of politics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 66th Annual Conference, Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk, Fukuoka, Japan, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: While the institutionalization of media logic in other societal subsystems has been described as the “core of mediatization” (Schrott, 2009, p. 42), and most mediatization scholars agree that media logic is key to understand processes of mediatization, there is still no consensus about the concept of media logic (Landerer, 2013; Lundby, 2009). Not only do different scholars conceptualize media logic differently, there is also disagreement as to whether media logic should be understood as a singular logic or rather as media logics. In addition, many questions remain about how new digital and social media might reshape media logic and, in extension, the dynamics of the interaction between media logic and the logic of other societal subsystems such as politics (Klinger & Svensson, 2015).
In this paper we will focus on one variant of media logic, namely news media logic. From a new institutionalist perspective it has been proposed that news media logic consists of three key dimensions: journalistic professionalism, media commercialism and applied media technologies (Esser, 2013; Strömbäck & Esser, 2014). This implies that news media logic has a partly dynamic character: when journalistic professionalism, media commercialism and/or applied media technologies change, so does media logic and, in extension, the interaction between news media logic and the logic of other societal subsystems. This might then have important implications for, among other things, the mediatization of politics.
Against this background, the purpose of this paper is to analyze how the increasing importance of digital and social media influences news media logic and, in extension, the interactions between news media logic and political logic and the mediatization of politics. Taking into account all three dimensions of news media logic (journalistic professionalism, media commercialism and applied media technologies), the key questions to be addressed are how changing media technologies are reshaping news media logic and the dynamics of the mediatization of politics.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Critically oriented approaches to discourse and change focus on issues such as power and tensions in the process of organizational change. From this perspective, communication may be seen as, for example, the process in which organizational members struggle for preferred constructions of change-related phenomena. For example, researchers have demonstrated how certain communication practices serve a hegemonic function in change processes and how tensions are reflected and constructed in CRC. This paper uses the notion of “change logics” to explore change processes in two nonprofit organizations in New Zealand. It demonstrates how discourse was used strategically to advance and resist change agendas.

Publication Type: Paper (prepared oral presentation)
Abstract: Although they approach the problem differently, both social psychologists and political scientists investigate the conditions under which people endorse the status quo or seek to change it. Given that the status quo is known to exert powerful effects on decision-making and voting behavior (e.g., the incumbency effect), we sought to identify motivational and linguistic frames that would reverse status quo bias. Drawing on Regulatory Focus Theory, which distinguishes between the motivation to maximize positive outcomes (i.e., promotion focus) and the motivation to minimize negative outcomes (i.e., prevention focus), we suggest that the risk aversion associated with a prevention focus should decrease when change is reframed as a necessary prerequisite to relief from a negative status quo. In terms of voting behavior, this reversal may manifest as change in preference for incumbents (vs. challengers), conservative (vs. liberal) candidates, or one’s own party (vs. the opposing party). In a natural experiment during the 2006 midterm elections, Congressional candidates represented different combinations of incumbency, ideology, and party membership. We manipulated regulatory focus and linguistic framing negativity before asking respondents to report liking for candidates and their parties. Results indicated that couching prevention focus in negativity led to increased liking for progressive candidates but had no effect on preference for conservative challengers. Additionally, we found that respondent partisanship changed the definition of the status quo: ratings of the parties were differentially affected by the manipulation, in line with the way Democrats, Republicans, and Independents are expected to conceptualize their party-level and system-level status quo.
