Résumé/Présentation The growing public presence of author?s images not only calls into question new theoretical concepts for their description, but also demands reflection on the process of categorisation of authors as a matter of power relations in a diversified and globalised literary field. Sarah Burnautzki and Raphaël Thierry problematise classification as arbitrary and unequal in the French and Francophone literary field. It is for this purpose that they analyse Francophone African writers' dominated position within a literary field determined by book markets mainly located in the global North, especially in France, and highlight symbolic as well as material production and naturalisation of hierarchies and cultural otherness by publishers' policies since the postcolonial period. In this article, Burnautzki and Thierry highlight the power of a society?s and a literary market?s hegemony discourses and their impact on (African) author?s representation.
