Il était une fois, des histoires d'amour... Relations amoureuses enfantines : étude ethnographique en temps périscolaires auprès d'enfants de 6 à 11 ans

Abstract : If young romantic relationships may seem trivial and free from any power relation, like the first readings of children's stories, it appears that by studying them more closely, inequalities and violence are finally present. Indeed, when the prince kisses the princess when she sleeps, he actually does so without her consent. The same goes for young romantic relationships, which seem more magical than they really are. The ambition of this thesis is therefore to report on young love stories, far from talking animals and magic, but ultimately not far from the order of gender and the violence that result from it. The objective for me is therefore to witness young love relationships, at least in part, and to understand the way in which these are constructed and articulated with friendly relationships within the school institution, a place where children spend most of their time. More specifically, I sought to determine how children invest their love relationships and through what love codes. From a 4-month ethnographic survey carried out during lunch breaks and Wednesdays in an elementary school in the Ile-de-France region (France), I was able to study the various love codes and the norms that characterize them. It was then thanks to participant observation and the setting up of collective workshops that I was able to closely study children’s behaviour in romantic relationships and obtain the different perceptions that they have of these relationships.
