Déplacements et entretemps : mobilités humaines et territoires de l’attente dans la littérature des Amériques (1880-2010)

Abstract : This thesis has the objective to understand the phenomena defined by Laurent Vidal as waiting territories, which are places where the wait is conceptualized and planned, or territories where the wait insinuates itself into the migration and modifies the perception of the people in movement. The chosen period, spreading from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 2010s, allows to analyze important migratory flows which intensified during these years. To analyze and understand these phenomena, we use literary sources from American novelists. Through the described events - sometimes lived by their authors -, these are human adventures, slices of land of everyday life which are offered to us. This thesis tends to describe at the same time individual experiences, but also collective ones. The pieces of work used throughout this analysis allows to identify the various times of the wait. By analyzing the various novels, two forms of territories of the wait that appear : the first one where the wait causes the mobility; the second one where the movement provokes periods of wait, forced or not. This thesis fits in with a study of the migration, but also in a cultural history through the migration literature, that is to say as a representation of the migration by authors who lived it, but also by authors external from this phenomena.
