Pratiques spatiales, identités sociales et processus d'individualisation. Etude sur la constitution des identités spatiales individuelles au sein des classes moyennes salariées du secteur public hospitalier dans une ville intermédiaire : l'exemple de Tours

Abstract : This qualitative investigation deals with an examination of the ways of living in Greater Tours. It was carried out by scrutinizing the daily life of residents of the city center, the peri-center, the suburb and the peri-urban space of Tours. The study points out the complex relation between social and spatial elements of identity. In particular, this work examines the genesis and transformation of individual spatial identities and tries to understand the diversity of the following structuring factors: space, social environment, economy, culture and biography. To analyze these factors and their interactions, the study uses the concept of habitus with a specific stress on the plurality and the transformations of systems of internalized dispositions. This analysis of the spatial habitus (i.e., the generators of urban practice and self representation) allowed to understand more thoroughly the social dispersion of the middle classes. It showed as well the tension between collective factors and the individualization process in specific ways of living.
