Title Between Insanity and Love: Emotions online
Abstract In recent decades, numerous studies have examined the effects of information and communication technology (ICT) on relationships among people through the Internet. Some studies have focused on the relation between users in online gaming sites or dating sites, revealing how relationships and communication patterns have been changing in the digital age. However, while many studies have focused on the relationship between people, it is likely that some people have also been affected by the relationship with digital objects. In this seminar we will discuss how people recognize and use digital objects, especially focusing on their emotions.
