Les fondements du ressentiment et les rencontres culturelles
The Basis of Resentment and Cultural Encounters
Languages of publication
This article draws on various theories and representations of resentment. On the one hand, resentment leads to holding back feelings and impeding change, and on the other hand, it fosters important social, cultural and scientific developments. Let’s take the example of resent‐ ment stemming from racism against certain minorities (immigrants, Natives Peoples, French‐Canadians, etc.), and how it contributed to an essential change in the literary canon leading to the creation of new interdisciplinary fields, such as minority studies or Afro‐American studies. These new fields of research explore identity as no longer limited to national territory but linked to the migration of people, to their creativity and integration to dynamic societies in the Americas.
