Territoire et communication politique sur le « web régional breton »

Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to explore the dimensions of a “regional Breton web” (regional Breton network) with reference to users activity. The construction and analysis of the object of this investigation (i.e. the corpus “regional Breton network”) are associated with the application process for the status of generic Top-Level Domain .bzh (meaning Breizh, i.e. Bretagne). Beginning with the notion of territory, it was suitable to go beyond the physical frontier to define the attributes of the territory (Brittany) on the web. Thus, taking in to account the hyperlinks between websites, we have mapped web cartographies by demonstrating the dynamics of the websites associated with a physical territory. By means of analyzing the signs associated with a physical territory and circulating on the web (referred to as “transposable signs”), we have shown that the notion of territory arranges a spatial and a temporal dimensions. This analysis shows a change in the connotations of signs staged on the web as flags or languages. By means of the project entitled Top-Level Domain .bzh, this artefact and its associated international organ of regulation, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, have come to formalize the notion of community on the web. Breton imagery on the web must thereby structure itself. By associating web dynamics and the temporality of the territory, this thesis propose to redefine the notions of territory and institution as moving past the management of stability to become the management of circulation on the web
