Les occitans imaginés

(The Imagined Occitans)

In the GdRA’s works, Christophe Rulhes often deals with the issue of languages and family transmission. He also works on the disappearance and metamorphoses of cultures, speeches, dances and music. A doctorate student at EHESS and a member of the laboratory of anthropology CAS/LISST/CNRS, he wrote a book on the Occitan identity in the light of his family’s farm life and dialect. Three links on the subject.
