L'écriture du voyage à l'ère de la mondialisation

Abstract : The thesis studies the evolution of the travel writing in the globalization era. By globalization we mean the speeding up and the banalization of transports and also the planetary interconnexion due to the new technologies. How the new travel types (tourism, globe-trotting) influence the practice of space in one hand, and the perception of the exoticism and the othemess on the other hand ? ls travel a déjà-vu because of the great number of images of the whole world, or discovery is still possible ? This research gives some answers to these questions. The corpus is composed of Foreign Words by the Greek writer Vassilis Alexakis, The Sicilian Carousel by the British writer Lawrence Durrell,Ali Soul's Day by the Dutch writer Cees Nooteboom , n Flying Mountain by the Austrian writer Christoph Ransmayr and Britney Spears' Kidnapping by the French writer Jean Rolin. This comparative literature research studies the evolution of the form, synchronie as diachronie. Then this study examines the motivations of nowdays travel and the creation of the imaginary through new technologies. The research reviews the important moments of the travel (departure, border crossing, arriva retum) and the different types of travel (tourism, quest travel, roaming, globe-troning) in order to identify the evolutions. This study concerns the questions of exoticism and otherness and also of the postcolonial. lt is also about the exoticism of different spaces and the « archipelization (fragmentation) of the world. Finally, the question of new exoticisms, like proximity exoticism, eisoticism and virtual exoticism, is approached.
