Discours de (dé)légitimation spatiolangagiers de la migrance en espace urbain

Abstract : Overlapping the (inter)disciplinary fields of urban sociolinguistics and discourse analysis, this dissertation displays the glocal domination phenomena in Rennes, and in France, in discourses focusing on persons hetero- or self-designated by their mobility or “origins”. The research thus examines a variety of discursive points of view on the city ; yet, all of them seem to reveal a domination phenomena – a process linked, in urban sociolinguistics, to the hierarchization of persons and languages on a given territory – in discourses on migration, or in other words, in hegemonic discourses on mobility.Our research divides into two parts. First, it consists in an analysis of current political media discourses on migration and “migrants”, by a lexicometric analysis of a corpus composed of national, regional and local press articles. Secondly, we analyze how and why these discourses are reproduces, criticized, questioned or ignored, and how are dominant categories reproduced or left behind. We study how frontiers are reproduced in the city when the “legitimacy” of the presence of persons perceived as “migrants” is debated. This second aspect of our work, relies on participant observations and semi-directed interviews in the context of a community and participative project
