Motherhood forums as arenas for political debate – An analysis of online discussions about the welfare state. This article analyses online debate in a popular Norwegian discussion forum for mothers, a forum in which participants discuss a wide range of topics that includes news and politics. A quantitative and qualitative textual analysis is given of forum discussions on welfare services and welfare politics, and how these are understood in relation to the Norwegian welfare state. Findings are contextualized in light of a theoretical perspective drawing on public sphere theory and the concept cultural citizenship.
