In the Norwegian system an academic has four main obligations: research, teaching, communication and innovation. This section presents my an overview of how I deal with these four obligations. 

This section consists of a short biography, my value orientation, news about my work and my employment history in reverse chronological order.

Biography

Lars Nyre (born 1969) comes from the farm Nyre in the town of Voss in Hordaland. He lives in the Bergen suburb Minde with his partner and three children. He has studied and/or worked at the Infomedia Department at the University of Bergen since 1990. Nyre became an associate professor in 2008 and a full professor in 2012.

Nyre is currently a professor II at the Department of Media and Social Studies at the University of Stavanger. He was a professor II at Volda University College from 2008 to 2010, and also conducted his PhD work at Volda from 1997 - 2003.  

Lars Nyre enjoys music under the pseudonym DJ Syrenyre.

 

Value orientation

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 disruptive practices due to new 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 local democracy, the ideal of good communication, and technological sustainability. My main objective is to stimulate excellence in the development of local and regional media technologies in Norway.

In the Norwegian system an academic has four main obligations: research, teaching, communication and innovation. This section presents my research activities. 

Four related topics

My published research deals with four interrelated topics that are presented here: media design, journalism research, technology theories, and media criticism. For each of these headings I have selected relevant examples from my academic production. Please consult larsnyre.no and larsnyre.com for a comprehensive presentation of my academic ouvre.
 

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:

Locative journalism, with Solveig Bjørnestad, Bjørnar Tessem and Kjetil Vaage Øie, 2012.

Technology theory

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:

Teknologi tek over, 2020.

Teknologiar er moralske aktørar, 2012.

Medieavhengig i Amerika, 2004.
 

Journalism research

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:

Automatisering av nyheitsarbeid i lokalaviser, 2020.

Kritisk tillit til journalistikk, 2014.

Journalistar er teknologiske deterministar, 2010.
 

Media criticism

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:

More information in national current research information system (CRIStin)

In the Norwegian system an academic has four main obligations: research, teaching, communication and innovation. This section presents my innovation activities. 

[Section to be improved]

            What does innovation mean? Some academics consider it a cliché.

            RRI - responsible research and innovation.

            Innovation built into teaching. Direct. Applied.

            Innovation - research through design. Indirect. Basic research.
