The article analyzes the impact of the supra-sociological and geo-strategic dimensions of historical relations between various components of the world system upon identity. We consider personal identities as well as shared ones, attempting to highlight the defensive, compensatory and subversive functions underlying processes of subjective identity construction as a response to the traumatic structure of the world system which results from history. Our hypotheses are based on fieldwork carried out immediately following the events of 7th July 2005 among British and Portuguese Muslims of Gujarat origin settled in Leicester, United Kingdom. Cet article analyse l'impact de la dimension suprasociologique et géostratégique des relations historiques entre les différentes composantes compétitives du systèmemonde tant sur les identités personnelles que sur les identités partagées, groupales ou communautaires, en cherchant à mettre en évidence la fonction défensive, compensatoire et subversive, des processus de subjectivation identitaire face à la structuration, traumatisante, du système-monde historiquement construit. Les hypothèses dé veloppées sont fondées sur un travail de terrain réalisé immédiatement après les événements du 7 juillet 2005 auprès d'interlocuteurs musulmans gudjeratis, portugais et britanniques, résidents à Leicester (Royaume-Uni). Este artigo analisa o impacto da dimensão supra-sociológica e geo-estratégica das relações históricas entre os diferentes componentes competitivos do sistema-mundo sobre as identidades pessoais, bem como sobre as identidades partilhadas como grupais ou comunitárias, procurando evidenciar a função defensiva, compensatória e subversiva dos processos de subjectivação identitária face à estruturação, traumatizante, do sistema-mundo historicamente construído. Os argumentos desenvolvidos baseiam-se em trabalho de terreno realizado imediatamente após os acontecimentos do 7 de Julho de 2005 junto de interlocutores muçulmanos de origem Gujarat, portugueses e britânicos, residentes em Leicester (Reino Unido).
