Les Touaregs d’Europe et leurs « amis » : Diffusion et réception d’une cause saharienne mythifiée

Abstract : The thesis entitled The Tuaregs of Europe and their "friends": Diffusion and reception of a mythical Saharan cause, carried by Pierre Peraldi-Mittelette, analyzes the interactions between the Tuaregs living in Western Europe (notably in France, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland) and Europeans with whom they are connected. Ethnography carried out since 2013, as part of this doctorate, has allowed the observation of ways to (re) present to interlocutors who are not part of the Tuareg community. The analysis is thus centered in these interactions on the ways of defining oneself in order to understand how people in the diaspora can present themselves and what allows the communication to be formed with interlocutors of different origins. Based on an original ethnography of Tuaregs settled in Europe, it is not question of their identity per se, but their way of positioning themselves in Tuareg according to their interlocutors, in speeches, postures and attitudes. Through an ethnography of communication and a pragmatic analysis of the lexicon, semantics and postures and identificatory attributes, it was a question of what makes sense to oneself and what the meanings are shared, thus allowing a intercomprehension and the establishment of a recognizable and legitimate ethos to bring a Tuareg cause to Europe.
