Frontières politiques et géographie culturelle du tracé franco-luxembourgeois à celui du Rhin supérieur depuis les années vingt

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The border regions of Eastern France are closely related with the neighbouring countries. This relationship is still alive in spite of the tendency to stress national identity of each state. The relative linguistic homogeneity favours cultural continuity, a spatial model that can be seen as having developed during four periods: up to 1955, perceptions were preferentially directed to national spaces| from 1955 till 1960, the linguistic unity gradually entered the perceptions of people in the areas concerned, a process which became stronger in the 1960s. Since 1973, a concordant policy of cultural identity has been developed although this identity has not been clearly defined yet.
