Postmodernism is a revolt against modernism, and it is being associated with the changes in societies, and the results of politics globally mainly after the 1960s. The postmodernism era is also used to define a period after modernism, and it goes back to the reanalysing and mainly rejecting the ideas and notions accepted by modernism. The destruction of the First and the Second World Wars led people to seek for a change, and in many countries, social change also speeded up. Thus, the Great Wars together with Algerian War of Independence and 1968 France Riots were the centres of the shift, and the birth of the postmodern era. Besides, it was the beginning of the end of the Cold War and the emergence of a new world order. Apart from the social and the political changes, postmodernism has a significant impact on some concepts such as philosophy, art, culture, literature, photography, architecture, cinema and theatre. Therefore, it is clear that postmodernism is a broad cultural movement that comes after modernism and has a close connection with above-mentioned areas. Therefore, this study is going to find an answer to the question of ‘what is postmodernism’, and it pinpoints the effects of the movement on the other human sciences.
