Title Iranian Turkish Literature Study Exploring Social Capital In Cultural Alliances: A Multi-Level Analysis Of A Traditional Innovation For Ta’ziyeh
Authors Dr. Afshin Amoozadeh Lichaei
Abstract Turkish literature theatre is commonly portrayed as a positive capability that allows individuals, groups, and organizations to thrive in dynamic contexts. This paper questions this oversimplified view based on a dialectical analysis of a traditional innovation within a comparative level. We analyze the major contradictions that characterize the adoption of the innovation. First, we analyze contradictions between individuals and groups within each adopting organization theatre in Iran or India. Second, we analyze contradictions between the adopting elements. This multi-level analysis leads to a deeper understanding of performer process. The analysis of the case shows that, although the participating individuals, groups, and some countries demonstrated apparent performer in adopting the traditional innovation, the innovation remained in a fragile state, where it was unclear whether it would continue to diffuse, stabilize as-is, or slowly deteriorate. The category of “religion” made me reject the historicity that surrounds the theoretical understanding of religions. I come to the conclusion that religions work in accordance with the specificities of the societies that it seeks to govern. These variations are also reflected in the regional variations of the performance of the rituals. We suggest that understanding the future success of the innovation would be facilitated to a large extent by a dialectical analysis of the involved contradictions.
