Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis conducts an anthropological study of the definition of face within Japanese culture through literature as well as by Japanese people in the age group 20 to 30 years living in the Stockholm/Uppsala region. It further investigates how face is related to shame and, in which conditions shame is felt by the above-mentioned target group. Having analyzed when shame occurs, the study further enquires how these Japanese people avoid shameful situations and how this relates to their face. As a core theme to this thesis will be an analysis of the conducted interviews with the help of Japanese anthropologist Takie Lebra’s definition of shame. This thesis will demonstrate how these Japanese informants are influenced, how they react to shaming situations and how it is related to their face.
