Abstract

Social realities in Japan have been changing for roughly two decades and those young Japanese directly affected by the „hiring ice ages“ have become known as a „lost generation.“ the media discourse concerning this phenomenon has been diverse, putting forward a number of explanations for this dilemma, while often younger generations have been blamed for their situation. This paper critically examines the facts and discourses surrounding the emergence of the „lost generation” in the 1990s in Japan, highlighting possible alternative interpretations within the discourse.

Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
