Penser les rapports aux lieux dans les mobilités privilegiées : étude croisée des backpackers en Thaïlande et des hivernants au Maroc

Abstract : This doctoral research analyzes international privileged mobilities crossing two groups in a spatial perspective: backpackers and winter migrants. Mainly driven by leisure, those longtime North-South mobilities, enable to understand the diversity of relationships to places produced by the increasing globalization of lifestyles. Young travellers (backpackers) in Thailand (Bangkok and Ko Phangan) are crossed with retired snow-birds (winter migrants) in Morocco (Agadir). At the intersection of tourism studies and migrations researches, lifestyle migrations analysis question continuities and reconfigurations of social relationships and power games. Passing and appropriation of space reveal the translocal dimension of contemporary lifestyles. This dissertation studies practices of backpackers and snowbirds in everyday territories, metropolitan spaces and transnational networks. Practices and sociability networks underline the complexity of the relationship with Elsewhere and Others. Between Here and There, ambivalent relationships to places question the classic dualities between tourism and home, everyday and extraordinary. Interwoven power games enable those privileged mobile people to build a temporary home Elsewhere. In the end, globalization can be read through those two images of international mobilities. They translocally change the structural reading frame of societies, beyond only individualistic interpretations of contemporary dynamics.
