Attitudes about new media. A meta study of attitudes about new media in essays written at the University of Borås. (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is a meta study of essays published at the Institution of Library and Information Sciences at the University of Borås in 2009. It aims to answer the following questions: What attitudes about new media can be found in essays written within SSLIS and are there traces of media panic in the discourse? The theoretical framework of the essay is based on a theory of the concept of media panic as defined by Kirsten Drotner et al, and the concept of moral panic as defined by Stanley Cohen. The method used is derived from Klaus Krippendorff’s ideas on content analysis, as published in the book Content Analysis. The method in this study uses computerized searches for target words. The target words used were: Internet, web, e-, blogg, facebook and twitter. The material was analysed using a four field model, consisting of fields of positive or negative attitude towards a specific medium regarding usefulness and reliability. The study shows attitudes found in the material were mainly positive about new media, and only to a lesser degree were there clearly negative attitudes. It also reveals that there are few signs of media panic in the discourse.
