Pouvoirs de femmes dans les lieux

Abstract : The issues of wandering, instability, and power are largely addressed today in literary, political, and scientific works that tend to examine them separately in a general way. In some cases it is possible to link these notions. The thesis is a comparative analysis of the spatio-temporal situation of eight heroines from various contemporary works, distinguished by their background and their cultural, geographical and social origins, but which are approaching by their instability and the nature of their powers, as opportunities for action, which they mobilize. The instability born of their evolution in the places (place of origin and place of passage or adoption) does not lead to a loss of oneself insofar as it impels the exercise of powers synonymous with openness, self-assertion, resistance. Power does not only involve action on oneself, but also on others, who react by opposing their own power according to Foucault’s theory. As a result, the powers of the heroines are circumscribed, their freedom is limited by the very existence of others, nevertheless they remain responsible for the actions they engage from a Sartrean point of view, they manage to acquire a real authority, proving that they exist and that they have a role to play in given spaces
