La mémoire collective et la violence : radicalisation et enracinement

Abstract : This doctoral thesis concerns Memory, Violence, and Radicalisation. In effect, we use the approaches of sociology of the imaginaire, comprehensive sociology, and narrative research to study these subjects. The hypothesis that we examine in this thesis is that collective memory is a vast and important resource in the radicalisation towards extreme violence. The terrain which we examine this hypothesis is that of the catholic community of Northern Ireland. We examine the testimony of several former combatants of the IRA, taken from a series of qualitative interviews, so as to understand the radicalisation that led them to carrying out acts of violence. This is read against the backdrop of the testimony of members of the same community who did not follow the same path, and illustrated with reference to the cultural resources and elements available to this community. This thesis proposes several modest yet original contributions in the field of collective memory studies (the notions of a poetics of collective memory and territory of collective memory) and radicalisation studies (radicalisation as enracinement, radicalisation as ignition into a narrative of collective memory). The main contribution of this thesis would seek to propose a framework for understanding radicalisation from the standpoint of collective memory.
