De l'enclave au kaléidoscope urbain. Los Angeles au prisme de l'immigration arménienne.

Abstract : The enclave theory is generally used to describe urban immigrant settlements in American cities. Understood generally as a bounded and fixed place, the enclave is supposed to be the necessary condition for the production of community belonging. However the multiple and heterogeneous places of Armenian immigrants settlement in the Greater Los Angeles area show that the enclave model is not relevant. In addition to these multiple settlements, Armenian immigrants claim a right to build a distinctive and centered place. This claim was heard in 2000 when an area called Little Armenia was o fficially created in the city of Los Angeles. We can consider that the multiple Armenian places in Los Angeles are spatial fragments structured by community claims and multicultural norms.
