Expérience migratoire et exil social dans la migration congolaise : de l’enjeu d’un corpus littéraire en sciences sociales. Biyaoula, Mabanckou et N’Sonde

Abstract : This article is based on an analysis of literary works written by Congolese authors who have lived in France to consider migration as a possible space for meeting points between literature and social sciences. This leads to hypothesize a social nature of exile in contrast with the dogmatic and restrictive idea seen as a “forced migration”. In this context, the Congolese’s exile experience in Africa and Europe lies first in a continuum of the French “colonial situation” and is strengthened in case of migration to France, through marginalization and symbolic violence, mainly discursive, exerted on immigrants inside the Nation-State. The use of a literary corpus from an anthropological angle leads to question the communicability of exile experiences and hence to refine the comprehension of migratory experiences while exploring varied theoretical and methodological tracks.
