Sammanfattning

The aim of this essay is to understand the relationship between the media and the city. It is based on qualitative text analysis of theories and arguments from within urban sociology and media and communication. Two questions are posed: (1) what assumptions are the relationship characteristics between the media and the city based on? and (2) what communicative changes in the relationship between the media and the city are historically noticeable? The results are that: (1) the characteristics of the relationship between the media and the city are based on the assumption that the role of the media in society is closely intervened with the rise of the modern city and the urban society; and (2) four phases of communicative changes up until today are noticeable. First‐hand experiences decreased and second‐hand contact became more common, more shallow and rational due to the population sizes of the modern cities. The first‐hand experiences continue to decrease but also the second‐hand experiences. The latter is due to the increased importance of visual representations, and that the perceptions of the city became more important. As consequences people no longer always know from where their experiences steam. The implications of the characteristics of the relationship between the media and city are further discussed in terms of the importance of public spaces and public places.
