Approches bibliométriques des littératures francophones subsahariennes

Abstract : Setting up literary data banks in recent decades has made it possible to include quantitative methods in the study of literary production, reception, fact and life. Our thesis examines one of these digitized corpora, within the framework of Francophone sub-Saharan literatures. Thus, on the basis of a bibliometric approach, we intended to quantify this literary production based on data provided by the African Francophone literature database (LITAF), mainly focused on French-language literary production in sub-Saharian Africa. Unlike so many studies that have been conducted on the history of French-speaking sub-Saharan literatures, this work focuses on quantitative research in this area. The exploitation of this databank, has been made through a measurement whose aim was to trace the quantitative evolution of the different variables of this literary production. It has been made by questioning and highlighting, the historical factors that had an impact on the fluctuations of the production over the different periods. The established quantifications have been made by dividing the records into sections, which took into account criteria such as : the period, the genre or the literary category, the critics of works and the authors, the countries and the publishers. Moreover, the analysis of the descriptive signs of the documents made it possible to grasp and examine the evolution of the types of printed matters, of the media of diffusion, of the phenomenon of reception and to highlight the editorial mutations specific to this literature. By submitting all these bibliometric quantifications to interdisciplinary analyses, we have been able to construct a quantitative literary history and to identify through it the factors that have conditioned the production as well as the reception of this literature from its advent to the 2000s
