Registered author(s):

    Le terme « rumeur » est récurrent dans les écrits journalistiques qui abordent la théorie du complot liée aux attentats du 11 septembre 2001. Pourtant, associer cette théorie du complot à une rumeur est plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît, en effet, elle se présente souvent davantage comme une réelle information n’ayant pas eu accès à l’espace public via les médias traditionnels. Dans cet article, nous nous intéressons aux processus de transmission sociale des idées dissonantes liées aux attentats du 11 septembre 2001. D’une part elles seront étudiées de manière externe, en tant qu’objets situés dans un espace temps déterminés, on s’intéressera à leur émergence, à leur diffusion, à leurs variantes. D’autre part les théories seront analysées de manière interne, en tant que texte ayant une structure argumentative forte et des contenus, explicites et implicites. Le but étant de confronter ces deux approches afin de comprendre comment se développent et circulent les théories du complot liées au 11 septembre via les médias et plus particulièrement internet.
