Research manifesto

As a professor at the University of Bergen in the democratic state of Norway I can claim certain privilges that I use for maximum effect in my research on media technologies. In return I give full disclosure of all relevant aspects of my career trajectory.

Autonomy. I have no allegiances to media companies or any other private or public institution or association. I very seldom let myself be interviewed in the press. While I have previously had public positions and roles, I now systematically refrain from them.

Non-profit. Academia allows me to disregard short-term expectations for profit and societal utility in development projects and analysis. Collaboration with colleagues and students are the most valuable resources by which I can explore long term scenarios and radical solutions.

Value-orientation. My research is not value free at all; it is guided by the norms of social democracy, the ideal of good communication, and technological sustainability. My main objective is to stimulate excellence in the development of local media technologies in Norway.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fields of expertise

My research deals with four important topics that are presented here. Please consult larsnyre.no and larsnyre.com for a comprehensive presentation of my academic ouvre.

Technology

I have researched technology's role in human life since the start of my PhD in 1997, and over these twenty years I have noticed that digital technology networks take over more and more aspects of communication. Artificial intelligence is a particularly interesting and dangerous phenomenon. It is important to study these technically initiated ordering forces. Please read:

Medieavhengig i Amerika, 2004.

Teknologiar er moralske aktørar, 2012.

Kampen mot den andre på Facebook, 2016.

Journalism

No forms of communication are more important and controversial in democratic societies than journalism, and its technical foudations are changing uncontrollably. Local journalism is the most important institution for news. I study it qualitatively and hermeneutically, with a focus on the interaction between journalists, readers and developers. This has been an important theme since my post-doc project in 2003. Please read:

Journalistar er teknologiske deterministar, 2010.

Kritisk tillit til journalistikk, 2014.

Critical position

Criticism in academic terms means to submit a text to a careful hermeneutical reading and evaluate its merits regarding truth, reason and relevance. Criticism also means to rebuke or berate. If reality is distorted, or important topics ignored, there must be rebuke. I am a strict critic of my own discipline media studies in Norway and Europe. Please read:

Opprop mot samtidsopportunisme, 1998.

Journalistikken koloniserer universitetet, 2012.

Bygg kontrolltårnet nå!, 2017.

Media design

Karl Marx said that the scientist cannot just interpret the world; he must change the world directly. Media researchers cannot just analyze the media, we must create new media. I want to know as much as possible about the connection between media technology, content production and human experience. Every prototype we make tell us a lot about what did not work, and a little bit about what's worth investing in. Please read:

Teaching duties

Currently (autumn 2018) I am the main responsible lecturer at fourcourses at the Infomedia Department. 

MIX301:Media technology: theory and development

This 10 point course is based on transgressive design and innovation pedagogics, and the students are expected to be collaborate in groups of three to four. They are challenged to make a prototype medium with original content. The course is held in Norwegian.

2016: Kurset handla denne gongen om kameradroner. Studentane laga pitchvideoar til prosjekta sine, og dei er som følgjer:

dRIg: Prototype på en automatisert drone for journalister som drar ut på reportasje alene.
