The Swedish Press and the Circulation of Knowledge in the 1960s

PIs: Johan Östling and David Larsson Heidenblad

This project sets out to explore how the Swedish press enabled and moulded the circulation of knowledge in the 1960s. The project has a dual purpose. Empirically, we seek to provide new insights into how the press was able to put knowledge in motion during this decade. Theoretically, we aim to refine and substantiate the key analytical concept of the project, “circulation of knowledge”.

“The Swedish Press and the Circulation of Knowledge in the 1960s” runs between 2018 and 2019, and is funded by the Ridderstad Foundation.
