As a judicial concept dating back to the 17th century, the term ex(tra)territoriality has long excited the interest of scholars and writers who have, since the 20th century, not hesitated to appropriate the notion, widening and transforming it in the process. This transfer to the field of humanities has opened a new space of reflection, a space for imagination, through the means of a creative re-reading, among others, which has given rise to new but related concepts such as "deterritorialization". To take into account the growing importance of this extraterritoriality paradigm reassessing the idea of territory in literature, culture and languages, this book offers an interdisciplinary and plurilingual journey through four centuries, four continents and a dozen languages, from literature to new media, encompassing philosophy, history, linguistics, the press, the cinema... Notion juridique remontant au XVIIe siecle, le terme d'ex(tra)territorialite suscite depuis longtemps l'interet des sciences humaines et de la litterature qui, depuis le Xxe siecle, n'ont pas hesite a se l'approprier pour l'elargir et le transformer. Ce transfert du qualificatif ex(tra)territorial vers les humanites a ouvert un autre espace de reflexion, un espace d'imagination, grace notamment a une relecture creatrice, ce qui a pu donner lieu a de nouveaux concepts apparentes comme celui de " deterritorialisation ". Pour tenir compte de l'importance grandissante d'une pensee de l'ex(tra)territorialite, mettant en question la notion de territoire dans les domaines litteraire, culturel et linguistique, le present ouvrage propose un parcours interdisciplinaire et plurilingue a travers quatre siecles, quatre continents et une dizaine de langues, de la litterature aux nouveaux medias, en passant par la philosophie, l'histoire, la linguistique, la presse, le cinema, etc.
