Les 'brumes de la mémoire'. Expérience migratoire et quête identitaire de descendants de Portugais de France.

Abstract : Based on an ethnography carried out among about fifty descendants of the Portuguese in France between 2000 and 2006 in both their society of residence and their society of origin, this thesis explores the question of memory in the migratory context. It questions social continuity and the construction of the self, in the framework of a migration characterized by the absence of any definitive spatial break with the place of origin and by a diasporic policy towards "luso-descendants". The reflection is structured around the study of the meaning given to the migratory experience, based on an analysis of life stories and practices of coming and going between France and Portugal, and that of associative practices in French society. It reveals the tensions between the construction of a family memory which is still turned to the place of origin and the assertion of a collective memory of identity in France, as well as different situations of liminality which raise the question of stepping across symbolic and social thresholds in dual belonging.
