Résumé :

Relating to Benedict Anderson’s seminal work on the discursive construction of national communities and Bourdieu’s notion of identity politics, this conference aims to uncover the politics behind community reconstruction, the inclusionary and exclusionary mechanisms inherent in community discourse, the (new) conceptions of identity at the heart of post-war communities and the struggle for dominance between top-down (governmental) and bottom-up (grassroots) projections of community and narratives of belonging and solidarity.
