Nationalisme et identité nationale dans les manuels d'histoire américaine de l'enseignement primaire au Texas : 1982-1997

Abstract : History textbooks construct and transmit an official version of a nation's past, and as such are highly contested political terrain. An examination of the textbooks that were adopted for use in primary education by the very influential state of Texas in 1982 and 1997 reveals the evolution of the representation of American identity and the way in which American history was written following the multiculturalist movements of the 1960s/1970s and the conservative backlash and the "culture wars" of the 1980s/1990s. Notably, multiculturalist viewpoints are attenuated in the world of public primary education by the persistent predominance of a traditionalist vision which refuses to recognize the significance of racism in the American past, and which demands the glorification of the nation and the inculcation of patriotism. This thesis analyzes the effects of these tensions on the books' text and iconography in light of the debates concerning identity and nationalism in the 1980s and 1990s.
