Suicide and Technology. The influence of online media on suicide rates in Japan

Term Paper 2015 10 Pages

Orientalism / Sinology - Japanology

Summary

In this paper I will explore the dual nature of the relationship between suicide and technology in contemporary Japan. I will especially review its most important causes over history, major developments and current trends, by means of reviewing some of the relevant scholarship, as well as discussing official and other public discourses on this topic. Furthermore, I will examine the role of the Internet and online media as social space for researching, discussing and (re)thinking suicide and its possible role as one such space in the developments of suicide rates in recent years.
