Le voile comme véhicule politique et utopique du corps : émancipation sociale et investissement territorial

Abstract : This essay proposes to study veiled women's bodies taken, in the French Republic, as a space for political and symbolical actions. From a social semiotic approach, focusing the social and symbolical dimension of the speech, this work goes through the analysis of discourses about the veil taken by the Muslim women in France, inscribed in media debates of the headscarf affair (1989-2004) and the integral veil affair (2009-2010), according they were (re)presented by Le Parisien, Le Figaro and Libération newspapers. Our aim is to make intelligible the wearing of this religious sign as a practice of feminine, social and cultural emancipation reconfiguring the relation between the private and public space, between religion and modernity, between transparence and opacity regimes. It is important for us to understand the way such bodies in minority state are claimed as militants and emancipated bodies, therefore, political and overall utopian.
