Helena Hof: “Deviant Innovators? Foreign Entrepreneurs in Tokyo’s Startup Ecosystem”
- Date: Nov 19, 2022
- Time: 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM (Local Time Germany)
- Speaker: Helena Hof (MPI-MMG)
- Location: University of Zurich
This conference will analyze deviance and norms in times of change in Japan. Deviance is understood not only as negative norm violation like e.g., criminality, but also as positive deviance of progressive norm transgression that may lead to social change and a redefinition of social norms. The conference will address classical questions of deviance research in current Japan: Is the perception of norms and deviance changing? Are norms and deviance redefined? Is control of deviant behavior undergoing change? How are social actors pushing for such changes? The conference allows not only to gain a full picture of deviance in current Japan, but to understand Japanese society from this perspective. It will address six topics that are especially relevant and interesting concerning deviance in current Japan: transnationalization, private life, youth, political norms, labor market, and social control.
