The purpose of this issue of Études de Communication is to study the images and imagination of territories produced, structured, and “worked” by the local and national media. How does information—understood based on the variety of its supports and media formats—participate in the territorial construction, seen as a symbolic operation, as structuring identity, as collective elaboration? The intention is then to understand what can be called “territorial work,” to study how medias make media in relation to territory or territories. In the context of strategies of territorial reconfiguration, the evolution of forms of public involvement and cultural/media practices of individuals, this issue proposes to accent as much the relationship to place—why and how media talks about places and spaces that it contributes to configuring, in and by the contents it produces and the meaningful structures they advance—as the meaning of the places structured and fashioned by the media and the images and imaginations thus associated with such places.
