Les groupements d'originaires de la Corrèze à Paris, sous la troisième République

Abstract : Throughout the third republic, migrant workers from Corrèze set up in Paris a whole network of societies, from mere clubs to political groups, cultural associations, touring clubs, associations of war veterans, trade and industry lobbies... these societies organized for their members a wide range of activities : leisure activities such as traditional banquets and afternoon dances, cultural activities such as musical evenings, poetry readings, as well as charities-help to needy families, health care, employment bureaus, financial aid enabling people to return to their region. Hence a variety of newspapers largely dominated by le limousin deParis. As a link between Paris and the provinces, they aimed at exerting influence, whether it is in Paris or in Corrèze. They were particularly concerned with promoting Corrèze, both economically, in the fields of tourism and reimbursing and culturally, through links with the regionalist movement and the "felibrige". They were also deeply involved in the local political life of the country of Corrèze. More difficult to assess is the impact of such societies on the capital. Corrèzien networks found professional openings for their members. They also seem to have supported a few political schemes. Altogether their influence in that field seems to have been more individual and less specific. These societies expressed a nostalgic love for their native region and in their action seem to have taken no account of social or political differences. they also acted as relays for regionalist ideas and for the "felibrige". Through their nostalgic celebration of rural life, the emphasis they put on return to the native soil, the importance of family, the weight of the past, they may well have been one of the breeding-grounds for the "national.
