Abstract

Culture is the guide that enables us to understand and describe the formation process, qualities and conditions of society, which is expressed as a structure that contains systems and norms. Tradition, on the other hand, allows us to observe the reflections of culture in society and individuals. Traditions maintain their continuity in society by reinforcing cultural values and norms. In this sense, the transmission of values and culture between generations is possible with the family, the smallest subsystem of society. In this respect, the family contributes to the progress of societies. As a role model for children, the family institution guides future generations to learn their culture in shaping societies. In this context, the main purpose of the study is to examine the communication and interaction between grandmothers, grandmothers' daughters and grandmothers' granddaughters living in the same family chain in the transmission of family culture. For this purpose, face-to-face and online interviews were conducted with three generations, 30 grandmothers, 30 mothers and 30 granddaughters, who are in constant interaction. These interviews were carried out with three different interview forms prepared by the researchers to be applied to each group separately. The phenomenological method was used in the study, which was planned in a qualitative design. The data obtained were processed and analysed in MAXQDA program. Themes were formed by the analyses. As a result, it was thought that increasing studies on intergenerational culture transmission and intergenerational communication and interaction would provide new generations with awareness of family culture.
