Les éleveurs et leurs pratiques quotidiennes : une sensibilité par-delà nature et culture ? : proposition d’une géographie sensible des éleveurs à partir de l’étude de trois territoires français

Abstract : In the context of climate change and environmental issues, the truths surrounding humankind’s relationship with nature that were once widely-accepted in Western society are open to vigorous questioning. In France, the professional farming world has been profoundly affected by the emergence of this ecological issue, at both practical and representational level. This research work focuses on the intricate relationships with nature as experienced by farmers through daily farming practices across France. To do this, we draw on three field studies. The first is located between Aquitaine and Brittany, and relates to the wooded countryside in the north-east of the Vendée; the second is located in Auvergne, to the east of Clermont-Ferrand, and is defined by the “Chaîne des Puys – Limagne fault” UNESCO site; the third takes us to the Ossau Valley in the Bearnaise region. Our geographic approach is primarily based upon on-site semi-directive surveys with cattle and sheep farmers, as well as on field observations. We are thus in line with other geography studies on the links between society and nature, such as that proposed by Lydie Ménadier in a thesis put forward in 2012, or the reflection led by Julie Delfour in a thesis presented in 2011. Our approach is also original in that it is highly multidisciplinary. We draw inspiration from the work of anthropologist Philippe Descola, sociologist Serge Moscovici and philosopher Catherine Larrère, among others.
