La protection de l'environnement à Téhéran

Monographie d'une Organisation Non Gouvernementale téhéranaise

Anahita Grisoni

Cette contribution trouve ses origines dans un travail d’enquête mené à Téhéran au printemps 2005 et qui s’intitule ‘La protection de l’environnement à Téhéran comme facteur de redéfinition de l’espace’. Dans cette étude, j’avais tenté de mettre en relation, à travers le concept d’espace, les aspects politiques, socio- logiques et géographiques des mutations physiques et symboliques de la capitale iranienne.

New Patterns in Pet Keeping in Iran

Anahita Grisoni and Marjan Mashkour


In the perspective of human–animal relationships, considered a social change marker, pet dogs in modern Iranian society constitute a form of acculturation that started under the former regime and perpetuates, if not intensifies, nowadays. At first glance, this acculturation form seems to be directly borrowed from Western patterns, but this article shows the peculiarities of the adaptation models to the Iranian context. This work, based on individual, semi-structured interviews with dog owners aims to study the subjective representations of pet dogs and the acquisition and cohabitation material conditions with this animal, within the context of a changing contemporary Iranian society.
