Approche sémiopragmatique de pratiques nées de la réception médiatique

Abstract : This thesis, inscribed within the research field of media reception, follows a semio-pragmatic approach to study the dynamics between spectators and media as they appear within the context of discursive practices developed by fan culture. Its main goal is to understand how these discursive practices develop from the reception of media texts. Although its general field is media reception, the work focuses on fan culture because in it one can find well-established practices of text discussions, manipulation of content, and rewriting. Our interest is to study media reception in the cultural frame that provides it with meaning. The thesis follows the activities of the fandom of the television series Twin Peaks.In our work, we try to understand the enormous diversity of fan practices (forum discussions, fan-made creations, manipulations) which show the complexity of media reception, aiming to recognize the form which spectator strategies take when facing media strategies. Our greatest interest is to give sense to the complexity of the relations which spectators establish with media texts, thus aiming to explore the dynamics which govern the discussions and practices surrounding the media text. We will attempt to show the logics of media reception and appropriation within fan culture in order to understand how the fans and their communities act as strategic spectators.
