Dark Tourism and Fukushima
This bachelor thesis focuses on the representation of Dark Tourism on websites that promote tours to the nuclear disaster site of Fukushima, the tour as advertised by Voyagin and the Fukuichi Kanko Project, organised by a collective of invested parties. The analysis is done through a multimodal framework as formulated by Luc Pauwels. The imagery and language used give insight to the way the creators of the website view the disaster site.
