Le Tata sénégalais de Chasselay : ancrage spatial et appropriations de la mémoire des tirailleurs sénégalais

Abstract : The Tata of Chasselay (France, Rhône) is a cemetery built during the Second World War to commemorate the massacre of some 200 African Colonial Soldiers at the hands of the German Army on the 19th and 20th of June 1940 in the region of Lyon. The Tata is, in fact, the only national necropolis dedicated to the memory of these soldiers. This thesis explores concepts related to the field of Memory Studies, and investigates the links between space and memory through the description of this cemetery. The first part analyses the Tata with the concept of "haut-lieu". The second part shows the memory regimes of the Tata and its evolutions since it construction in 1942. The third part suggests the concept of memory network in order to encapsulate the space within which the memory of African Colonial Soldiers expands. A reflexive approach of the research is proposed too.
