Abstract [en]

The concept of citizenship is normally related to disciplines such as jurisprudence, political science and political philosophy. However, media scholars have started to discuss and explore a wider definition of the concept of citizenship incorporating the subjective sides, such as identity, for example collective identity and how citizenship is exercised in everyday practices. More precisely, how individuals participate in the society in which they live, for example the role of the media for information seeking and learning. This chapter examines the role of television and internet, among immigrants (mostly families with children in the ages of 12-16) living in Sweden. It focuses specifically on issues concerning experiences of cultural change, that is on learning a new culture and language and how different media are appropriated for different citizenship purposes. Issues of relevance are: information seeking, discussion and opinion-making both concerning issues related to Sweden and to the homeland (the country of origin) or how Swedish media output is valued as compared to ‘homeland’s output, and finally how media are used for language learning. The chapter is based on tentative results gained from data collected within the project ‘Media practices in the new country’ and involves immigrant families from countries such as Greece, Kurdistan, Iran, Lebanon, Somalia, Syria, Turkey and Vietnam. The project has an ethnographic approach, implying extended in-depths interviews in the homes of the families as well as to some extent visual methods, such as disposable cameras (with the children).
