Fiktionstexter - Litteraturens värde och ungdomars medievanor
Umeå universitet.
2012 (English)Conference paper, (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In a multimodal media society that offers narratives in various forms such as novels, poems, movies, TV-series, computer games/console games, music etc., fictional texts are in circulation and have a great impact, specifically among youths who are mass consumers of these texts. How does this circulation affect their media habits and their views on fictional texts?

 

This paper aims at analysing the media habits of Swedish youths as it is based in a quantitative study that examines the amount of time the informants spend on fictional texts through various media forms in their spare time and as part of their schoolwork. It further analyses these media habits and discusses their effects on the youths’ identity processes and school performances. The study shows that the informants spend more time on fictional texts in their spare time than in school, that they consume more fictional texts than they produce, and that the female informants spend more time producing fictional texts than the male informants – a result that is coloured by the amount of time they spend writing blogs, tweets and diaries. The status of life-writing genres such as blogs, tweets and diaries as fictional texts as well as the effect on the teaching/learning process of using these forms of texts are discussed in more detail in this presentation.
