La France face à l’Empire britannique : un regard introspectif. Une histoire de l’impérialisme au temps de la conférence de Londres, 1902

Abstract : Imperialism is a strong word of the political langage. We see it everywhere in the speeches about foreign realities without knowing what is beind this this term. This master thesis tries to ask the question of the origins of this key element of the contemporary vocabulary. Taking as an object the relationship between France and England, it intends to study how the exchanges and the mutual representations between the two nations can inform us about the profound nature of the imperialist phenomenon. This study takes as a start the London colonial conférence. A meeting, little known in the history of Great-Britain, held in 1902 and where the questions that obsess the british empire at the beginning of the twentieth century were asked. Through the documentation which stems from this event and of the way the french presse described it, the goal of this work is to interrogate the speeches. To confront the place of impérialism in the langage and international realities that it describes. The final goal of such an approach being to see which forms the contemporary imperialism can takes at the beginning of the last century.
