Using cultural translation, this thesis aims to show that the Goutte d’Or is a social and cultural third space where newness is created. By viewing the Goutte d’Or as a marketplace, the tenuous relationship between cultures and the geographic space is brought to the forefront as a balance between hybridity and history is aimed to be reached within this part of Paris.
The main question that is explored through this approach is the existence of cultural newness: does it exist, and is it being created within the “boundaries” of the Goutte d’Or? Using theorists, cartography, interviews, photos, and research, this question, hand in hand with questions of translation, borders, and the existence of a cultural and physical marketplace within the city, the Goutte d’Or is looked at from a variety of angles, with the end goal of beginning to understand and appreciate the space as an important and essential part of a post-colonial, cosmopolitan city.
