Petite histoire d’espace et d’identité dans une ville sud-africaine

Abstract : Does human geography have something to say about identity ? Its principal subject is the study of relations between humans, individuals and groups, and their places. Our hypothesis is that humans and places are in complicity in the way they interact and form collective subjects. Three elements come into play in this construction which in a construction of identity : The form of the place (materiality), their substance (the humans who live there and the relations between them), and politics (actions intended to change form and substance). The text wants to analyse the interaction between these three elements very simply following the example of a man and a place in South Africa, possibly one the world’s contries where relations between places and identities are among the strongest, where they have been strongly manipulated by political powers in any case.
