Abstract :
[en] Would you buy flowers at the petrol station? This presentation examines the petrol station trope and its oscillation between site (a space where people interact) and sign or cultural signifier. It presents the result of the empirical study carried out in the interdisciplinary research project 'IDENT2 - Strategies of Regionalisation: Constructing Identity Across Borders', and examines the transformation of the physical 'petrol station' into a 'code' that is actively used as a qualifier in popular culture and in everyday life situations.
