Title:"Discourses of Liberation and Collaboration in Vichy France"


Taking as a case study the German occupation of France  between 1940 and 1945, and drawing on Michel de Certeau’s theoretical analysis of the Practices of Everyday Life (1974), this paper examines the strategies deployed by the German occupation forces to win the hearts and minds of the occupied, and the tactics used by the occupied to accommodate to, collaborate with, resist or subvert the language of the enemy in all its manifestations. Whether encoded in French or in German, the language of the ‘enemy’ is an insidious combination of linguistic events, discursive and semiotic practices, and subjective representations and memories that engage both the self and the other, identities and identifications, historic facts and myths. Of particular interest is the semiotic guerrilla warfare waged by both sides as they resignify each other’s symbols in order to give legitimacy to their construction of social reality. The resulting entanglements are complex and they do not end with the end of the occupation.
