Abstract : Internet and social digital networks (SDN) are, for the Breton language, a recent setting for social practices inwhich forms of recontextualization of a minority language in a post‐diglossic situation occur. The purpose ofthis thesis is to describe the transformations using a dialogical model of identity development. Such model focuses on a three‐dimensional analysis that encompassing the institutionalization forms of a language in a society, social representations of a language and social practices resulting in expressions of belonging. This dialogical process model, whose design is grounded in scholar works in the social history field, is first instantiated from a sociolinguistic perspective to describe SDN glottopolitical intervention characteristics in the post‐diglossia context. This conceptual model is then applied to in analysis of extended forms of sociability enabled, facilitated and structured by SDN both in a media and public communication context. Finally, the model allows the juxtaposition of the sociopolitical analysis of the Breton claim and the sociopolitical theory of public space on the three dimensions on which SDN have an effect: construction of social problems such as institutionalization, symbolic construction of territorial identity and citizenship as a social practice and way ofbelonging. Liberal glottopolitical interventions developed around SDN create forms institution of language based on both the market force and the autonomy capacity of social actors to build a regional territory
