This article studies in what respect departmentalization is firstly a conflictual event as much from the point of view of its claim, its reception and its development as from the point of view of its evocation. Secondly, it attempts to demonstrate that the status of France's overseas communities helps to expose the insufficiencies of the concept of national identity and destabilizes the irreducibility of the notion of citizenship. Our ultimate objective is to determine whether, despite the statutory link established by departmentalization, the effects of its application and the various expressions of its remembrance, overseas communities have managed to retain their specificities.
