Cultural psychology: Japanese culture and meaning systems?
I'm writing a paper for my cultural psychology course. The paper is about Japanese child care, focused on the moral and cognitive development of Japanese children from their own traditional/cultural perspective. It is mostly an archival research on Japanese culture which I am supposed to write up and present as a realist ethnography. 1. Is there any place online where I can conduct an interview with Japanese people who reside in Japan and are familiar with their own culture. 2. How can I identify actions, activities, and goals of the culture in order to construct a meaning system so as to understand and interpret the relationship between the actors (culture), tools (e.g., appraisal of the child's actions), activities, scripts, and goals? 3. Do you have any tips on how to write an ethnography?
