Abstract [en]

Through a cultural psychological point of view ethnic identity is linked to culture, as culture provides the context in which identity is embedded and negotiated. Approaching identification from a practice-oriented approach, two questions are raised. First, how does Assyrian identification as practice distinguish itself from other identifications, and second, what does Assyrian identification accomplishes in doing so? By analyzing Assyrian identification through the characteristics of practice and by adding from the research review with causes of differentiation, a model for Assyrian identification as it has been represented in scholarly work is presented. It is argued that power relations are always inherent in Assyrian identification, and that power is exercised by directing and structuring the identity practices. It is concluded that this has produced Assyrian agents who have competency in interpreting the varieties of identity ideologies as the result of political and economical power interests that have been imposed both internally and externally.
