Recompositions du monde artisanal et mutations urbaines au regard des mises en patrimoine et en tourisme au Maghreb et au Moyen-Orient (Fès, Istanbul, Alep)

Abstract : This thesis examines the heritage question, and seeks to understand social dynamics in progress within the cities of the Maghreb and the Middle East. Thus are analyzed the relations between heritagization and touristification, as well as the artisanal practices and their evolution within the ancient urban centres of Fez, Istanbul and Aleppo. The comparative study aims at showing how multiple social, spatial, and identity reorganisation processes are resulting from it. Areas of craft world, visited by the tourists, the ancient urban centres are thought like a resource, which needs to be valorised by local and international actors. In this way, heritage and touristic imaginations are contributing to the craft industry’s categorization, which is established as a heritage figure, judged illicit, and sometime is reinvented. This setting participates to an aesthetic process, in which the craftsmen are ousted or staged as part of the scenery. The craftsmen social position can therefore be changing whereas they are developing their own actions, compromising with the public heritage action and tourism.
