Trouver lieu. Le discours d'éditeurs français d'albums pour la jeunesse de la fin des années 1960.

Abstract : This paper offers an analysis of the discourse of publishers of children’s literature in France towards the end of the 1960s, a moment of radical change in the editorial field and in children’s institutions. What might the legitimacy of these discourses be in the literary field at a time when, traditionally, works for children were considered of minor importance? An analysis of publishers’ catalogues shows that the very existence of an editorial discourse is not a given. The discourse was a strategy developed by new innovative publishers. The monographic study of one such publisher, François Ruy-Vidal, reveals multiple functions that the discourse serves, be they didactic, literary or political, Moreover, the study shows the discourse’s limitations and its risks.
