L'effet conjugué du contexte national et du genre sur la (non) transmission des langues dans les familles mixtes en Corée du Sud

Abstract : Language transmission in mixed families in South Korea is related to two main factors: gender and national context. Gender inequality rooted in the society conditions marital practices and reproductive strategies. Korean women’s intermarriage is considered a threat to the symbolic order based on the ideology of "ethnic unity", while Korean men’s intermarriage is the object of political intervention to ensure the transmission of "national identity" associated with the Korean culture. In this social and political context, the marginalization and stigmatization suffered by Korean women married to foreigners is one of the parameters influencing the language transmission in their family. As for Korean men’s mixed families, using the Korean language is imposed by the South Korean government’s integration policy and therefore the foreign language spoken by their wives finds little place in the society. Based on interviews, journalistic and political discourse analysis, and quantitative data, this paper aims to clarify this double standard specific to South Korean society in order to show the influence of such a national context on language transmission in mixed families.
