La représentation des africains dans les relations de voyage pluri-médiatiques européennes du début du vingtième siècle

Abstract : The interest of this PhD-thesis originates from the conjunction of two important questions, the first one being that of representation of Africans in literature - and especially in travel literature and in photos. The thesis aims to show that the representation of the "other" is not always as fixed and as clear as one might think. Parting from different theories of the perception of the "other", we aim to show that the representation of the "other" in these illustrated travel books is very often ambiguous. The second is a question of communication and deals with the combined usage of different types of media (text, photographs, drawings, layout, peritexte (Gérard Genette). It originates thus from intermediality. The work aims to clarify the role of these different types of media in respect to the representation of Africans. Does the combination of these different types of media draw a picture of Africans which is different from that depicted in the text or in the image on its own? It is interesting to look at the added value which might be achieved by the combination of these elements. Does the added value arise from newly created dimensions which could not have been achieved by any one form of media on their own?
