Wandering Space in North of Tehran through Power-Resistance Relations
This research intends to study the social and political state of the wandering space in the north of Tehran based upon studying its present power relations. Accordingly, the exerted power on wandering space was divided into two kinds: cultural power and class based power relations. In addition, according to main presupposition of this research which is perpetual presence of resistance against power, and for obtaining a better knowledge from social and political state of the wandering space, we tried to figure a map of power- resistance relations in this space. For this reason, we selected Iranzamin Street in Qods Township as main field and, besides that, Africa (Jordan) Street and Saadatabad Street as additional fields of the research. The samples (persons) from whom we gathered data was typified based upon their situation in the power relation of our research field. Generally, we can call the method of this research as a qualitative circular/additive method. In the part of data analysis, according to the views about wandering space, we recognized three types among interviewees who were linked to the spaces: indifferent persons, opponents, and agreeable persons. Explanation of the views of these three types about wandering space is not possibly based upon economical states. Furthermore, the users of space were divided to five types and were explained by their affinities of economic status, cultural capital, and reaction against the exerted power on the space. As a result, the wandering space is a hardly problematic space with a very complex power- resistance relation and, therefore, explanation of its social and political status is impossible by simplistic, reductionist, polar, and clichés analysis.
