  • Abstract

    The subject of this thesis is the memory of an ancient fishermen's village of the north-east of brazil. This village, called itapua, was incorporated to the city of salvador in the second half of our century, when the capital of bahia tripled its size becoming an important industrial center. It's a study of oral history : the interviws were recorde between 1987 and 1991. Old residents of theplace were interviwed, especially men and women who are members of traditional fishermen's families. For collecting and analysing oral material we followed the principles of the research based on the concept of ethnotexts. The most important themes that are constantly repeted by those who were interviwed gives us certains insights about the community and its collective memory. We have also analysed how the transformations of the city were felt by the people of itapua who in many ways keep alive the traditions of the popular culture of bahia.


  • Abstract

    Il s'agit d'une etude sur la memoire orale, la tradition et l'identite culturelle basee sur un ensemble d'entretiens enregistres entre 1987-1991, qui constituent le corpus d'ethnotextes, source principale de cette recherche. L'objet d'etude, itapua, est un ancien village du littoral nord-est du bresil qui a ete englobe dans la ville de salvador, devenant un quartier de la capitale de l'etat de bahia. A travers le discours des anciens habitants de ce village de pecheurs certains aspects de la memoire collective du lieu ont ete mis en relief. On a analyse egalement la facon dont les transformations subies par le village ont ete ressenties par ces personnes ainsi que la fonction et le signifiant de la memoire et des traditions dans le processus d'adaptation d'une communaute populaire a une nouvelle realite. L'epoque concernee est essentiellement le vingtieme siecle (1910 a nos jours), mais certains evenements de la memoire collective communautaire, a travers certains recits legendaires et mythiques, remontent a des epoques bien anterieures.
