Centralité populaire : un concept pour comprendre pratiques et territorialités des classes populaires d’une ville périphérique

Abstract : This article offers a reflection around the concept of popular centrality, based on an ethnographic investigation led in Roubaix. It shows that as a "peripheral" territory (that is as a de-industrialized and relegated territory), Roubaix has become "central" for working classes, as it provides housing access and specific economic activities. It constitutes a nub of economic and social networks that have partially become autonomous from the wage system and the market at large. These working-class daily practices enable their material and symbolical re-qualification. Nevertheless, popular centrality is also a fragmented space, crossed by reputation and prestige logics and by gender and racial relations.
