Les Gens du bord - Pour une sociologie des pratiques soucieuse de l'histoire

Abstract : This thesis discusses the relationship between the dynamics of social transformation of communities of experience and the dynamics of subjectivation in the course of militant, civic or urban action, of actors emerging in different circumstances, and who try to influence their context of action.How the action of the actor engaged in a process of subjectivation to the encounter of the other makes return to his world or environment, and also to that of the other? Everything here is about borders and limits, history and memory in action. This thesis explore the work of the “les gens du bord”, passers of bright memory, passers of material and symbolic borders, throught various field materials and situations.Three types of experience with high socio-historical stakes are intrigued: that of the generations heirs of North African immigration from lower-income neighborhoods; that of anti-war activists in the former Yugoslavia; that of Roma migrants in France and that of a Romanian Rumanian activist movement.Rather than a comparative approach, it is a matter of decentering by working on their critical potential.The narrative path of this research on each of the experiences explored combines intrigue of the city and intrigue of social transformation. The decentering makes it possible to revisit the terms of the citadinity-citizenship-nationality relationship in the various fields.It is by borrowing from both urban sociology and an anthropology of the subject inspired by hermeneutics that we attempt here the experience of a sociology of practices concerned with the history, whose horizon would be to think an ecology of practices and not only an ecology of social groups.
