La fabrique d’un mythe fondateur ancré dans l’avenir : la rhétorique interventionniste lors des procès-spectacles en URSS

Abstract : This article focuses on the place of temporalities in the process of identity construction, in continuation of A.-M.Thiesse’s work. This topic is approached here, through a study of interventionist discourse during Soviet show trials in the inter-war period (1928-1933). At that time, the Soviet authorities both exalted an image of allied intervention during the civil war in Russia and insisted simultaneously on the imminent danger of a new foreign armed attack against the USSR. The article analyses the process of creation and the objectives of this amalgam, blurring the time frontiers between two events, one historical and another projected into the nearest future. The analysis shows that reshuffle of temporalities, which is characteristic of interventionist discourse, is mobilized by political power. Designed to advance multiple goals, it is namely thought to be a means of identity construction process. This example shows that the latter is not based only on creation of a past and a present shared by all the members of a community. The future and more generally the process of time frontiers blurring can also be thought to be a mechanism of social cohesion reinforcement.
