L’essentiel et le “super-flux” : mouvements et tremblements dans la civilisation métropolitaine des gratuits sur les marges étatiques et démocratiques de l’Europe

Abstract : The free dailies like the penny press in the late 19th century portray an urban civilisation experiencing a time of economic, social, cultural and political turmoils. The current research consists in understanding contemporary metropolitan transitions through the production and the reception of this type of press. Today metropolises are nodes of a world-wide liquid space of goods, people and capitals. Therefore, this commercial press could be essentially the mirror of a global civilisation unrelated to the inherited cities. However, this media depicts and is instrumental in the definition of locally-based territories which concentrate specific fears and expectations. Free dailies are parts of a localised risks Gesellschaft/Gemeinschaft implying two territorial phenomenons : 1) the perpetuation of borders closing the communicational ties between one state power and the metropolitan population, 2) the presence of transitional frontiers showing the ability of the state-civil society communication container to include parts of other territorial states. To understand these interactions, the research takes into consideration three free newspapers located in metropolises whose urban development crosses over state borders: L’essentiel in Luxembourg and the editions of 20 Minutes in Geneva (Switzerland) and in Lille (France)
