Autour du dimanche. Contribution à une généalogie de la consommation engagée au XIXe siècle


  • de Lavergnée, Matthieu Brejon


Recent historiography has shown that “ethical consumption” organised itself in France at the end of the nineteenth century on the model of the american consumers’ leagues. My aim is to show that we can observe similar commitments in Paris during the Second Empire. Social catholics fought for Sunday rest (neither production nor consumption on Sundays). Since Émile Poulat, we know how a radical thought wich refuses to compromise itself with the modern world can produce new ways of social and political action. By this way, this article wants to contribute to the history of consumer activism. It dwells on the sociology and gender aspects of the dominical associations.
