Homotopies littéraires et images partagées. Figurations du lecteur, du livre et de la lecture sur trois plateformes numériques (YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr).

Abstract : This Ph.D. thesis questions the evolution of literary figures when they overflow places « of their own » to which they are usually bound and invest highly standardized, non-literary devices. We seek to analyze the « space » dedicated to literature-related contents on three audiovisual platforms: YouTube, Instagram and Tumblr. We formulate the hypothesis of the homotopic nature of some contents (literary « challenges », reading « vlogs », « bookporn », etc.), which assume their willingness to adapt to the industrialized functioning of these platforms. By doing so, they differ from the heterotopian nature of many other literary spaces (art circles, literary TV programs) that drew their legitimacy from a rhetoric of « resistance » to a media environment presented as a threat. With digital devices that claim their versatility, sharing literary contents is not assimilated to a subversive misappropriation by the uses, but to a simple possibility of specification among many others, anticipated by the interface. The representations of the reader (part one), the book (part two) and activity of reading (part three) are analyzed in the light of a socio-semiotic, diachronic and iconographic approach. The qualitative analysis of those « shared images » eventually reveals a regime of popularity that combines with, rather than replaces, the regime of singularity. By investing circulating forms, the standardized specificities of the reading experiences that are displayed re-mediatize a « social » function of literature, between collective symbolic systems, technical framing and commercial stakes.
