  1. 1. Searching for possibilities - Exploring the potentials of my Qanun performance.

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Högskolan för scen och musik

    Författare :Richard Alsadi; [2021-10-21]
    Nyckelord :qanun; ancient instrument; traditional instrument; Middle Eastern music; world music; experimental; ambience; soundscape composition; maqam; noise music; self-discovery; extended techniques; improvisation;

    Sammanfattning : Over the course of many years of playing the qanun; a trapezoidal middle eastern zither-like stringed instrument, I have noticed how often the instrument has been played within its modal traditional framework, leading me to a perception that the qanun and myself are prevented from discovering more techniques and new potentials. I, hence, have been attempting to explore the traditional manners of treating the instrument with regard to timbre, playing techniques, and different harmonic orientations - while trying to maintain its true qualities and not losing sight of its traditional soul.

  2. 2. When fake news make the news. A study of journalistic boundaries.

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för journalistik, medier och kommunikation

    Författare :Anton Fridolfsson; [2021-07-27]
    Nyckelord :Fake news; post-truth; professional boundaries; boundary work; journalistic paradigm; propaganda; misleading information;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis takes a spearheaded look at a modern, much-talked about concept of misleadinginformation known as ”fake news”, and how traditional journalists have handled its emergence with regards to their professional boundaries. Built on the premise that who and what is to be considered journalism is a constant battle continuously fought between professional journalists and actors trying to lay claim to their professional territory, through the use of qualitative ethnographic content analysis of 88 journalistic texts, the study’s aim is to take initiative in academic concept development of how to define fake news, and explore in what ways traditional journalists have defended their professional boundaries, in light of the threat provided by the increasing prevalence of misleading content in the information ecosystem, as well as by an anti-establishment, critical of-traditonal-media post-truth culture.
