Le patrimoine des Avignonnais : la construction du caractère patrimonial de la ville par ses habitants

Abstract : The thesis wishes to understand how the inhabitants of a city build a relationship with the heritage within their city. How do they regard the elements of the city as being patrimonial? An inhabitant is a practitioner of the city and the practice which he/she has is the essential component in the comprehension of his/her relationship with the heritage. Two methodological devices of narration were used: itinerant interviews and focus groups, which produced the discourses in this research. The first device has, as its objective, to make the interviewees speak and walk about in the space of the city in order to find him/herself in the daily situation of a typical inhabitant, and to allow interviewees to show and describe the places where they have built build a relationship with the heritage. The second device has intends to meet with interviewees again in order to specify the characteristics which constitute the link that they have with their heritage. For the whole of the analysis developed, we explore the process of construction of meaning in the relationship built by the inhabitants with what they regard as their heritage. Interviewees are asked to speak about the discourses that they themselves developed during there itinerant interviews. This is why we speak about “sémiodiscursive” analysis of the corpora, we seek to understand the process of the meaning in the relationship with the heritage from a semiotic point of view by studying the discourses which build it. Throughout the thesis, the analysis has two levels: an analysis of content allowing to recognize on the one hand the places where the relationship is built, and, on the other hand the qualificative attributions at work. Then, a semiotic analysis studies the way in which the meaning of these relations to the heritage is built. We propose that, in order to understand the meaning of the relationship with heritage, we need to work with the various operations of construction of meaning witch are mixed up in the corpora, and witch we study separately in the analysis
