The cités strike back : restive responses to territorial taint in the French banlieues

Auteur :
KIRKNESS, P.

Description :
This paper focuses on the perspective and reactions of the bearers of the stigma in in two defamed housing estates in Nîmes, in Southern France. The A. questions the thesis of the wholesale internalisation of negative representations by residents of the banlieues. He proposes instead that their perceptions of stigma are deeply ambivalent, as evidenced by their abiding attachment to place. Mindful of the danger of romanticising the subaltern, he argues that many transgressions of the norms of dominant society are ways of deflecting and displacing the language of spatial stigma.
