Résumé

Pour l’anthropologie, la conversion est une notion embarrassante et classique à la fois. Depuis les années 1970, de nombreuses études s’y sont intéressées, d’abord dans une perspective marxiste puis structuralo-fonctionnaliste. La conversion combine simultanément de la transformation et de la transition, donc des changements (l’abandon de pratiques, le développement de nouveaux imaginaires) et des continuités perceptibles à différents niveaux.
