Frontières, culture, nation. La Catalogne comme souveraineté culturelle

Abstract : This paper questions the very nature of Catalonia given its historical and cultural backgrounds and its reluctance to fit into the modern state model of territorial sovereignty of either France or Spain. The series of anthropological articulations leading from language to cultural identification, from social structure to nation and to nationalism are submitted to a theoretical and historical review of the alternative ways by which specifie peoples may be associated to specific areas in Europe. Legally as well as ideologically, the definition of Catalonia is assumed to rely upon a spectrum of boundary figures able to unveil a structural unity of what may be appropriately called, following Louis Dumont, a cultural sovereignty.
