This paper is raising the question; how the cultural-literary journals dependent to dominant and competing discourses described the art in relation to social commitment at the first decade of 1979 revolution? To respond to this question, 3 journals, i.e. “Keyhane Farhangi”, “Adineh” and “Donyaye Sokhan” published at the mentioned decade were studied and the stance of social committed art in these journals in relation to discursive fields were analyzed.
The thematic analysis of selected journals showed 2 approaches in these journals; an approach considered the art commitment as a necessary issue to strengthen the revolution and religion ideals and the other one considered the art commitment as attention to socialism in a socialistic (left) view, but in every studied journals, social commitment of art, is viewed as a mean to expansion of power field through ideologic artistic production. This approach was biased to dominant discourse (religious-revolutionary discourse) at Keyhane Farhangi journal and biased to competing discourse (intellectual-socialism) at Adineh and Donyaye Sokhan journals.
