Les habitants d'Angkor Une lecture dans l'espace et dans le temps des inscriptions sociales de populations villageoises installées dans un territoire ancien

Abstract : Abstract "Amnesia”, the word keeps coming back in Westerners’ talks about the difficulties encountered whenever one wishes to understand historical and genealogical memory and models of social organization in Cambodia based on traditional supports, be it written or oral. This thesis seeks to explore how "space", also considered as an object of research, could be used as a medium for the expression and the transmission of social practices and stories. Based on ethnographic research conducted with families living in the archaeological site of Angkor, this study begins with a reading of the social (re) construction from the basis of domestic space. The building of houses and the ways in which they are inhabited are examined from a technical, ritual and social point of view, in tandem with data on cardinal orientations and their symbolism. The research then expands to the hamlet, the village, and the " petit pays. " It explains how social and identity relations are articulated and transmitted while being reformulated in a space formatted according to cultural representations as well as local and regional stories. The thesis ends with a study of the shaping of the sacred space. Cartographic mappings of the spatial distribution of deities in areas previously studied reveal a hierarchical system of territorial and social control operated by powerful deceased personalities. Starting with the house, this study ends with an interpretative essay on the temple seen as a spatial matrix from which social disharmonies could be regulated.
