Quand les timbres-poste reconnaissent ou ignorent les migrants et les réfugiés

Abstract : The postage stamp has become a medium for the State's communication, an explicit reference to official representations. As the State's logo, it conveys an image which is a message. The past several decades of philatelic production have yielded many thousands of illustrations for each country, each representing an aspect of national identity. In this article, we shall discuss whether States have portrayed human migrations in stamp art, and how they have been portrayed. We shall find that such subjects are rarely chosen as bearers of official messages. National memories, as mediated by the postage stamp, are extraordinarily selective and partial, if not amnesiac.
