Exile and Post-exile

Working paper in french.

Exilic experiences and identities nowadays escape current criteria. One can feel nostalgic for a country he/she has never lived in; one can feel a longing for a language he/she never spoke. The concept of post-exile is proposed here to define such a phenomenon which shall be understood in three ways: the end of exile or the return from exile; exile and post-exile as a succession of two stages in the exilic experience; exile and post-exile dialectically linked as two means of expression or two forms of manifestations.
