    Ved Rondane i sosiale medier: Visitors’ use of social media in national parks – a quantitative approach2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The use of social media has exploded over the last five years and has changed the way

    travellers and tourists search, find, read and trust information about activities,

    accommodation and destinations. Little is known about how to use social media as a

    communication tool in the context of Norwegian national parks. This thesis sets out to

    explore the visitors use of social media as an informat ion source and to what extent they

    share their experiences through social media. It does so by collecting quantitative data from

    the visitors in Rondane National Park and buffer zones. The material is then analysed by

    using the visitor experience model. Findings show that the visitors do use social media as a

    source of information and a place for where they share their experiences. However, due to the

    low respons rate it is difficult to make any final conclusions. Future research is recommended

    before making any final decisons regarding the implementation of social media as an

    information tool.

    Evolutionary economic geography: reflections from a sustainable tourism perspective2017In: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340, Vol. 19, no 3, p. 438-447Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Evolutionary economic geography (EEG) is receiving increasing attention from tourism geographers with over 30 publications explicitly incorporating EEG into tourism between 2011 and 2016. Many of these contributions are conceptual, which is not surprising given the novelty of EEG within economic geography, in general, and tourism, in particular. However, a sizeable number of these are built on detailed case studies, using EEG as an analytical lens rather than as a conceptual point of departure. Thus, many tourism researchers have found that EEG has great potential for understanding change in tourism destinations. In this Research Frontiers paper I critically reflect on this early research of EEG in tourism geographies from a sustainable development perspective. In the cases presented, EEG offers a fresh understanding of two related challenges in each of two separate aspects of sustainable tourism development. First, pro-growth governance models can be disrupted by engaged local stakeholders in order to make tangible sustainability gains but these gains remain precarious over time as pro-growth governance models prove tenacious in the very long-term. Second, regional institutional legacies hamper new path emergence in two ways - through institutional inertia which keeps the region's focus on past success in other sectors and through the (possibly competing) institutional imperatives of the dominant and emerging tourism sub-sectors or sub-regions. These challenges are illustrated through two complementary Canadian cases drawn from the extant literature - the mass tourism destination of Niagara and the resort community of Whistler. I highlight how a sustainable tourism perspective can also help to critique EEG theory and empirics in line with other recent political economy critiques in economic geography. I conclude that sustainable tourism, at its best, is an established reflexive lens which will help to develop, validate, and challenge aspects of EEG theory within tourism studies, in particular, and economic geography, in general.

    The professional relationship between tour guides and tour operators2017In: Scandinavian Journal of Hospitality and Tourism, ISSN 1502-2250, E-ISSN 1502-2269, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 345-357Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tour operators and tour guides are major stakeholders during production and operation of organized package tours. However, the relationship between them received little attention in tourism literature. This study intends to identify the dimensions of the relationship between the two parties and importance attained to different guiding roles both by tour operators and guides. It also explores the attitude gaps between tour operators and guides on various guiding attributes. The analyzed data were collected from 110 professional tour guides and 56 inbound tour operators. Numerous differences in perceptions were identified regarding importance attained to foreign language skills, group cohesion, holiday experience creation, entertainment, representation skills, contract compliance, image creation, itinerary compliance and identification with tour operators.

    A value co-creation perspective on customer-based brand equity model for tourism destinations: A Case from Sweden2014In: Finnish Journal of Tourism Research (Matkailututkimus), ISSN 1796-1300, Vol. 10, no 1, p. 8-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims at contributing to the development of the customer-based brand equity (CBBE) concept in a tourism destination setting by taking into account the value-co-creation approach. The components of the proposed model consist of the customers’ evaluation of the destination promise in terms of transforming tangible, intangible and social destination resources into tourists’ value-in-use. Moreover, destination brand awareness affects the evaluation of the destination promise, which, in turn, determines tourists’ behavioural intentions towards the destination. By implementing a web survey and using a linear structural equation modelling approach, the proposed model is empirically validated for the Swedish mountain destination of Åre. Results particularly show the significant contribution of customer benefits and value for money to create destination loyalty. The paper demonstrates that by monitoring unique destination and tourist-specific experience dimensions, destination management can control both the value-in-use for a customer and customer loyalty, thereby upgrade and evaluate its marketing strategy, and, finally, discover promising innovation potentials for highly experiential tourism products.

    Liminality in nature-based tourism experiences as mediated through social media2019In: Tourism Geographies, ISSN 1461-6688, E-ISSN 1470-1340Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The intersection between social media, liminality and nature-based tourism experiences hasn’t been the focus of previous tourism research. Such intersection, on the other hand, is illustrative of how social media relate to the constitution and performance of tourism spatialities, tourist identities, storytelling and place-making, and can lead to relevant theoretical contributes. We aim to investigate how liminality is expressed in relation to nature-based experiences by tourists on social media, and what role social media plays in mediating liminality during nature-based tourism experiences. The analysis is based on a participatory netnography of images and text posts, as well as online interviews with users of the popular social media Instagram. Findings show that the expression of tourism experiences in nature is closely related to specific notions of liminal otherness as opposed to the urban life and the everyday, where nature and wilderness are expressed as related to the genuine, the authentic and a true inner self. Creative combinations of pictures, captions and hashtags make it easier for tourists to express the contrast between the natural landscape and the everyday landscape once they returned home. These combinations also relate closely to performances of resistant and alternative selves and communities. At the same time, such performances are mediated and contested between freedom of self-expression, surveillance and social norms, an aspect that makes their liminal nature ambiguous.

    Reservofficeren: – från att fylla vakanser till att nyttja kompetenser2009Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Reservofficerarna har traditionellt varit ett viktigt inslag i Försvarsmakten. De antaganden som ofta görs om reservofficerarna är att de agerar som yrkesofficerare och att de internaliserar den militära kulturen. Men kunskapen om reservofficerarna är låg. Syftet med denna studie är att studera reservofficerarnas roll i insatsförsvaret utifrån reservofficerarna själva, samt utifrån representanter för Försvarsmakten och för regeringen. Resultaten visar att reservofficerarna är välutbildade och en stor andel är chefer och egna företagare. Trots detta uppfattar reservofficerarna att deras kompetens inte efterfrågas. Reservofficerarna upplever också att de idag inte uppskattas lika mycket som tidigare. Resultaten visar även på två typer av behov som Försvarsmakten har av reservofficerare, volymbehov och kompetensbehov. Dessa behov sätts i studien samman i fyra olika kombinationer.  1) det föreligger behov av reservofficerare att fylla vakanser, dvs. enbart volymbehov. 2) reservofficerarnas unika civila kompetens behövs, dvs. fokus enbart på kompetensbehovet. 3) Försvarsmakten har behov av reservofficerare som tjänstgör bara då Försvarsmakten har behov av dem, samt att de har en kompetens som Försvarsmakten inte har råd att bekosta, dvs. både volymbehov och kompetensbehov. Slutligen 4) folkförankring där varken kompetensbehov eller volymbehov står i fokus. Vi menar också att det behövs nya teorier för att studera gruppen reservofficerare då militära professionsteorier inte gör denna grupp rättvisa.

    Boundaries between work and leisure within psychosocial life environment: –an interdisciplinary literature review2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    Today, being physically away from the workplace does not mean that we necessarily are changing to another environment or leaving our work tasks behind in psychological terms. This paper presents a review of the literature that identifies the effects that cause a blurring of the line between work and leisure. It combines theories from the fields of Informatics, Psychology and Work Science. The results show that people express the need for a balance between work and leisure but are less able to find or create ways of allowing the necessary time for recovery. Presented are some initial suggestions on how to design ICT in order to separate work and leisure activities.

    Psychosocial Life Environment and Life Roles in Interaction with Daily Use of Information Communication Technology Boundaries between Work and Leisure2010In: Information and Communication Technologies, Society and Human Beings: Theory and Framework / [ed] Darek Haftor (Linnaeus University, Sweden); Anita Mirijamdotter (Linnaeus University, Sweden), Hershey: IGI Global, 2010, p. 266-282Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The presence of ICT (Information Communication Technology) in our psychosocial work environment and in our personal lives, has increased rapidly during the past 40 years. This way of interacting with ICT is often characterized in terms of access to information and social networks with the possibility of being independent of time and place. Every person’s psychosocial health is influenced by their life environment; a combination of their work and home environments, their life roles and of their social networks. People who work professionally in the field of ICT or use ICT in their work experience a blurring between their professional and private roles. However, when people’s experience of work and leisure becomes blurred, this may impact on their psychosocial health. They need to develop strategies to create ways of allowing time for recovery. In this chapter we present a review of the literature that identifies the effects that cause a blurring of the line between work and leisure. Moreover, we present some examples of strategies for managing the blurring of contexts facilitated by ICT. Presented research combines theories from the fields of psychology, informatics and work science.

    Theory of knowledge of tourism: A sociological and epistemological reflection2015In: Journal of Tourismology, Vol. 1, no 1, p. 2-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study analyses theoretical problems in the study of tourism and reviews some major thoughts and literature as well as tourism as an emerging discipline. Tourism as a scientific discipline still does not haveits own and established academic body that distinguishes it from other sciences. Therefore, tourism as a recent field of research is struggling without being understood in the correct way because its theory of knowledge is not delimited and tries to be reflected from the point of view of its formal components. In this sense, the principal aim of this article is to try to delimit the perspectives and definitions of the main authors that have contributed tothe "tourism theory" in general until now, by focusing on several dimensions such us: positivism, materialism, neo-durkheimism, functionalism and post-modernism.

    Gastronomy Tourism: An Interdisciplinary Literature Review of Research Areas, Disciplines, and Dynamics2018In: Journal of Gastronomy and Tourism, ISSN 2169-2971, E-ISSN 2169-298X, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 131-146Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Residing with the exponential growth of gastronomy tourism research, a number of review articles have examined the relationship of gastronomy and tourism from distinct thematic and disciplinary perspectives. What remains absent is a comprehensive overview that encapsulates the interdisciplinary dimensions of this area of research. In response, this study comprehensively investigates gastronomy tourism literature utilizing a network and content analysis, with an aim to map the main subject areas concerned with gastronomy tourism and relations between varying subject areas. In doing so, themes determining gastronomy tourism and focus for future exploration are identified. The review findings suggest that the trajectory of gastronomy tourism research is characterized by the dominance of "tourism, leisure, and hospitality management" and "geography, planning, and development." Three recommendations are proposed to assist development of gastronomy tourism research: increased dialogue across subject areas, development of critical and theoretical approaches, and greater engagement with sustainability debates.

    Mission Accomplished?: Framing of the Iraq War in the Elite Newspapers in Sweden and the United States2005In: Gazette: The International Journal for Communication Studies, ISSN 0016-5492, Vol. 67, no 5, p. 399-417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the framing of the 2003 Iraq War in the elite newspapers in Sweden and the US, Dagens Nyheter and The New York Times. The content analysis revealed significant differences between the two papers: the military conflict frame was more common for the US war coverage while the responsibility and anti-war protest frames were more common for the Swedish war coverage. Both newspapers offered human interest stories and media self-references. The US newspaper, however, relied more heavily on official government and military sources. In addition, the tone of war coverage differed across the two nations, with Swedish reporting being more negative overall. Implications of the differences in war coverage as well as possible reasons rooted in the national media and political systems are discussed.

    Look Who's Talking: Use of Sources in Newspaper Coverage in Sweden and the United States2008In: Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada Online, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though we live a global world cross-cultural comparisons of journalism practice remain rare. This study analyzed the use of sources in newspaper coverage in Sweden and the United States. Rather than focusing on one single event, the comparison utilizes data from three different events: the 2003 Iraq War, the 2002 national election in Sweden and the 2004 presidential election in the United States, and the 2005/2006 international controversy stemming from the publication of the Mohammad Cartoons. Some patterns across the three events emerged for the use of government officials, academic experts and citizens as sources but not for other types of sources. The findings are discussed in the context of news reporting and journalism within a distinct national political and media system.

    Developing Edu-Tourism In An Urban Indigenous Community: The Case Of Aldeia Bananal (Brasília – DF – Brazil)2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This work aims at developing a tourist visit to the Aldeia Bananal, a community located in Brasília, the Brazilian capital. The community is composed of three ethnic indian groups: Kariri-Xokó, Tuxá and Fulni-ô. The reason of the study is to research and develop Indigenous Tourism. Furthermore, I also wanted to evaluate the present and future benefits to the students and to the indigenous community of a project which relates Indigenous and Educational Tourism. The thesis describes three visits from public school children organized by the government and the official visit organized by me together with the leader Cacique Tanoné. The visitors or student-tourists were mainly from the 4th semester of a Tourism bachelor course. While developing the Educational Tourism visit we mostly focused on three concepts: Geotourism, which tries to enhance the cultural and natural characteristics of the indigenous group through participatory tourism; Ambience Generation, which relates to changing the learning environment of the students as a mean of catalyzing their educational process; and Staged-Authenticity for Community Empowerment. The thesis is developed in three phases: first, the description of the area; second, the development of the visit together with the community; and last the analysis of the visit based on the community leader’s and the students’ view. The most important fact that affects the community’s daily life and consequently the present tourist visitations is the construction – started in 2007 – around their land of the newest and most expensive neighborhood in Brasília, the Northwest Sector. Some conclusions of this study were: the community was at all times very positive towards the research; they received a fair amount of money and were satisfied with it; they spread their culture in a tense political moment; and enhanced their cultural heritage, although I think the visit did not enhance the natural environment as it could. For the students the project created a unique contact with the indigenous group which led to a higher knowledge and valorization of their culture; it also showed a practical example of indigenous tourism to Tourism students. The data did answer the question regarding to the benefits to the students and to the community; and the method for developing and evaluating an indigenous tourism practice is still in progress and can reach an ideal level with further research.

    Autenticitet i ett öppna data-sammanhang: Utmaningar och möjligheter ur ett arkivvetenskapligt perspektiv2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By tradition, archival sciences has emerged in a context with defined information processes, with explicit information producers and custodians to which consumers make requests for the information. In this process, the archival science has developed methods and strategies to preserve authentic and reliable records and by that providing trustworthy information. In an online society, people are using the internet to get information for different purposes. Even though there is no legal obligation to guarantee the authenticity, it is of societal importance that the end users get trustworthy information. In this online context, open data is a trend that is growing fast over the world and it is interesting because its conditions raises many questions regarding authenticity.

    Since open data is free to reuse, link and combine with other information, and it is preferably in primary format it raises questions about how to maintain the integrity and identity of the information, which is the constituents of authenticity as it is used in this work. The idea in this essay is to discuss challenges with maintaining the authenticity for open data and also identify possible measures to promote authentic open data information on the web, so that the end users get the possibilities to assess its trustworthiness and fit for use.

    The essay is a qualitative text analyses, with the theoretical base in the InterPARES project results. Open Government Working groups 8 principles and Open Knowledge Foundations definition is discussed, as is also the discussion from other disciplines about provenance on the web, and ideas from digital records forensic.

    The results indicate that there are great challenges to maintain the authenticity of open data but there are also some solutions. Recorded provenance and traceability are key factors to enable the evaluation of the authenticity. But first the concept authenticity has to be interpreted in a wider sense. There is a need to maintain the authenticity of the parts, the data, in the information. Because the information is used in parts and if the new information created from it will be reliable, it need accurate data with established identity.
