About this book

Introduction

This book explores the mediated aftermath and remembrance of the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster through three crucibles: time, space and emotion. Through an ambitious and innovative combination of theoretical and methodological approaches, the book discusses how meanings, emotions and interpretations of disruptive events such as the Fukushima Daiichi disaster circulate and change over time and space in the global, contemporary hybrid media environment. Through its six multi-method empirical case studies from Japanese local newspapers to commemorative Tweets, the volume addresses questions of memory, trauma, expertise and nuclear politics in relation to the three key concepts of the book. The findings of this book provide new insights on research of disruptive media events in the contemporary hybrid media environment.
