Suivez le guide… De l’autre à soi, ou comment devenir monument

Abstract : In Rieux, locals and tourists agree: “e have two monuments here: the church and Colette,”meaning a jewel of Romanesque art and the guide who shows visitors around. Although it may seem trivial, this “onumentalization”of Colette at least makes clear –but reversed –the very process whereby, usually, the guide is the agent who makes the monument sacred. It invites us to look into the case of this strategic character on the touristic scene, situated exactly between visitors, heritage and local society, and, through a localized ethnography, to try to understand the part she plays.
