Title:Iranian adolescents in cultural contact: an investigation into the relevant forms of behavior in the context of the family of originLanguage:GermanAuthor:Moradzadeh, FarhadPublication date:2011Day of the oral exam:2007-05-02Summary:
This folklore work is concerned with examining young migrants from Iran in Hamburg with regard to their forms of behavior and conflicts in certain family areas. Girls and boys between the ages of 15 and 22 were questioned qualitatively. In particular, gender roles, parental authority, educational goals, linguistic communication as well as celebrations and celebrations in the family of origin were taken into account. Finally, this study deals with the identity formation of these young migrants.
The most important test results can be summarized as follows:
The study came to the result that the Iranian migrant families in Germany can be distinguished from one another as value conservative and value flexible and can be described differently. Corresponding to the two types of families, the parents' style of upbringing also varies, and so do the extent of the conflicts. When analyzing gender roles, it was found that boys generally have more leeway than girls. Most of the conflicts in this area relate to friendship between girls and unfamiliar boys. The distribution of power in the family has developed in favor of the children as a result of immigration. Because of this, few young people describe their parents as strict. The child's age, school performance, parents' level of education, mother's occupation and length of stay of the family in the host country are the most important variables influencing the distribution of power in the family.
It is extremely important to most Iranian parents that their children obtain an academic title that is to be understood as a symbol of prestige for the family in migration.
The Iranian migrant parents find it easier to speak Farsi, while their children prefer to communicate in German. Linguistic communication has developed into an area of ​​conflict during migration, as enormous misunderstandings sometimes arise.
In connection with the festival culture, it was observed that the target group is only superficially familiar with the ancient Persian and Islamic festivals. Most young people attend these celebrations with their parents and are less inclined to identify with such cultural and traditional events. In contrast, most parents try to use each festival as an opportunity for their children to identify with Iranian culture.
In the presentation of the identity formation of the young migrants, it was found that the girls and boys surveyed are mainly influenced by the German outside world. However, the starting point of the development process for most Iranian girls and boys is a dichotomous identity or a “German-Iranian identity”. Most of the young Iranians try to approach the host society in order to be recognized as “fellow citizens” there. This attempt fails when they perceive that the German society in which they grew up continues to label them as “foreigners” or as members of another ethnic group. The term “foreigner” helps to send these adolescents, who are disappointed in the host society, back to their culture of origin.
