Escapism is often defined as temporally getting away from unpleasant
situations or thoughts. Since technology creates new opportunities to escape from
something unpleasant, the interest in studying escapism has recently increased in
information system (IS) research. However, despite growing interest on escapism,
research is still in its very beginning stages. To explore IS phenomena more
comprehensively this paper proposes a research agenda that highlights current
shortcomings and the need to address these shortcomings. Thus, this paper provides
a point of departure for future research on escapism and encourages IS-research to
further investigate the effects of escapism in IS-related settings.
