Présence et image de la dynastie de Lorraine-Habsbourg dans l'Est Républicain de 1944 à 1999

Abstract : Recent years have witnessed a resurgence of questions of identity, at both national and sub-national levels. Taking the case of the Lorraine region as an example, the present study examines the mechanisms operating in the elaboration of a coherent discourse relevant to lotharingism. Those betraying an allegiance to the Lorraine-Habsburg dynasty were selected for deeper study. The role of the media is examined in detail via analysis of the regional daily newspaper L'Est Républicain from 1944 to 1999. The whole of the research method applies the theoretical framework of the orchestra model. The results obtained demonstrate the role of local influences in elaborating various manifestations of dynastic tendencies, which are expressed in relation to the descendants of the House of Lorraine and particularly with respect to the archduke Otto of Lorraine-Habsburg. This work has additionally illuminated the guidelines applying to the interactions of History as a science, popular History, and News, according to the corresponding parties' different interests. In this context, the position adopted by the regional daily press evolves as a function of the editorial politics as well as of the local, national, and international context. This research work has also revealed - the procedures for political communication put in place by the archduke Otto of Lorraine - the function of certain commemorative ceremonies - the dissemination of popular History as articulated with respect to the theme of the Habsburg dynasty.
