Questions d'identité et problèmes d'auto-détermination

Questions of identity and issues of self-determination
Pages: 39 - 53
Auteur(s) / Author(s): Susanne Dybbroe
Résumé:

Cet essai sur l'identité inuit tente de définir celle-ci en termes d'expérience individuelle et de processus collectifs. Ces deux composantes sont ensuite mises en rapport avec la situation politique des Inuit contemporains, en particulier avec leur quête d'auto-détermination. On en conclut que la préservation de l'identité culturelle est liée au contrôle des symboles.

Abstract:

This essay on Inuit idendity seeks to describe identity in terms of individual experience and of collective processes. These two elements are subsequently put into relation with the political situation of contemporary Inuit, particularly with their quest for self-determination. The author concludes that the maintenance of cultural identity is a process related to symbolic control.
