"Pour vivre heureux, vivons cachés" : pratiques résidentielles, styles de vie et rapports de genre chez les classes supérieures du pôle privé

Abstract : At the crossroads of the sociology of social classes and the urban sociology, this thesis focuses on the private pole of upper classes, defined as the one having more economic than cultural capital and living in homogeneous spaces of the well-off residential suburbs. It analyses the role of both the neighborhood and the house in the formation and reproduction of this class fraction and thus contributes to the understanding of segregation mechanisms. It is based on a survey conducted in the wealthier districts of two municipalities in the Parisian suburbs (Rueil-Malmaison and Saint-Maur-des-Fossés) where sixty interviews with homeowners were conducted. More than two thirds of the households surveyed have an estimated property of more than one million euros and therefore belong to the 3% of the most affluent households in France. The households surveyed choose a neighborhood marked by its entre-soi, which ensures favorable conditions for social reproduction. They invest locally in social relationships and heritage enterprises, from which they extract resources in terms of social, symbolic and economic capital. In addition, the households surveyed are invested in a privatization movement, which results in a strong taste for real estate ownership and in their withdrawal into the domestic sphere, which mainly affects women, many of whom are housewives. Finally, this privatization is also synonymous with a distance from public services, visible through the management of their security, which is sometimes accompanied by a movement of residential closure.
