Préavis : Résultats du projet IDENT

Les résultats du projet IDENT paraîtront au mois de juillet dans la maison d’édition « transcript ». Le livre intitulé « Doing Identity in Luxemburg: Subjektive Aneignungen – institutionelle Zuschreibungen – sozio-kulturelle Milieus » donne un aperçu d’une société peu explorée et des constructions d’identité dans un contexte de globalisation. L’équipe interdisciplinaire des auteur-e-s y met en relief des processus subjectifs d’appropriation et des processus institutionnels de projection dans les domaines différents : « langues », « espaces », « cultures du quotidien » et « auto- et hétéroimages ». En outre, les auteur-e-s font ressortir les différents milieux socio-culturels au Luxembourg à partir des données empiriques. Le livre paraîtra également en langue française et anglaise.
