Les banlieues françaises: Islam, droits de l'homme et citoyenneté

Pendant les dix années qui séparent les émeutes de 2005 des attentats de 2015, une production culturelle (littéraire, cinématographique, artistique et musicale) a vu le jour en France. La jeunesse issue de l’immigration post-coloniale investit l’espace de débat public pour dire la société française, ou plus exactement une composante sociale relevant de l’espace urbain de banlieue : cette littérature lève le voile sur la ghettoïsation géographique, physique, mentale, et psychique de certaines banlieues, ainsi que sur les injustices polymorphes qui font d’elles des lieux de relégation « à perpétuité ». Elle questionne les droits réservés à ses habitants, citoyens de la France mais se trouvant pourtant en situation d’exclusion.

“If I had to choose between the Doors and Dostoyevsky, then—of course—I’d choose Dostoyevsky. But do I have to choose?” –Susan Sontag

There seems to be no end to the anxieties, fantasies, pleasures, and possibilities of pop culture—how we consume it, avoid it, appreciate it, and allow it to inform our identities. Yet, can we theorize pop today? And if so, to what extent are we obligated to do so?
