« Combien de temps pour devenir une femme ? » Sujétion et transgression chez Nina Bouraoui

Abstract [fr]

Cet article montre dans quelques œuvres d’inspiration autobiographique de Nina Bouraoui comment la subjectivité de la protagoniste est construite par différents discours identitaires dans le cadre franco-algérien et comment elle est déconstruite ou reconstruite par l’écriture. L’expérience corporelle de la protagoniste porte l’empreinte de l’héritage familial qui est le microcosme de l’héritage culturel marqué par la violence de l’Histoire franco-algérienne. En outre, l’emprise de la normalisation des genres pèse lourd sur la subjectivité de la protagoniste, ce qui résulte dans des sentiments d’auto-culpabilisation. L’entre-deux, c’est-à-dire entre deux pays et deux genres, est pourtant l’espace à la fois douloureux et créatif qui donne la force d’écrire et de s’écrire, et de venir à bout du sentiment de culpabilité, ce qui est analysé à l’aide de la lecture par Judith Butler du mythe d’Antigone et de la performativité de la confession.

Abstract [en]

This article shows how in some of Nina Bouraoui’s novels that bear the mark of an autobiographical intent the protagonist’s subjectivity is constructed by different identity discourses in the Franco-Algerian context, and how it is deconstructed and reconstructed by writing. The protagonist’s subjective experience of her body is linked to the family’s legacy that is the microcosm of the cultural legacy marked by the violence of the Franco-Algerian history. Moreover, the impact of gender normalization puts pressure on the protagonist’s subjectivity which results in a feeling of self-incrimination. However, the in-between, between two countries and two genders, is a space, both painful and creative, that gives the power to write and to cope with the feeling of guilt, which is analyzed through the lens of Judith Butler’s reading of the myth of Antigone and the performativity of confession.
