La mise en série de représentations du réel : comment les séries télévisées ordonnent le temps politique

Abstract : This paper takes as its starting point the recent development of well-written American television series that explore crucial social and political themes in an often naturalistic way, to show how this particular narrative form discusses, or undermines, the political, social and economic order of western societies. These series use specific narratives and techniques to dramatize figures and social conflicts that are often neglected by fiction, and provide a topography of future possibilities and impossibilities to organize and impose how the viewer receives them. Finally, their framework of the almost-never-ending story twists political temporality via three different forces. Each series presents the story of an origin, or natural law which is considered as both plausible and necessary (an anatomical understanding of the past), a foundation, or common history which validates a certain way of living together (a validation of the present), and a utopia, or transcendental destiny that a community is given in order to reach its ends (a charting of the future).
