Les loisirs des populations issues de l’immigration, miroir de l’intégration

Abstract : Although it is the object of solicitude in the domain of political and social attitudes and in the domain of familial and matrimonial morals, the impact of “origins” on attitudes observed in the domain of cultural practices, sports and leisure activities has not, however, been the subject of much study in France. The analysis of the data from the Life History study in 2003 shows three salient results on the matter. Firstly, although it is common to oppose the universe of savant culture and that of mass culture, the practices observed in both domains hardly appear to be sensitive to origins. Secondly, the relative neutrality of these practices appears to be unequally pronounced in men, for whom the assimilative virtues of mass culture are more distinct, and in women, for whom “savant” practices – reading, in particular –, markedly more frequent than in men, are also appreciably more sought-after than in their “pureblood” French counterparts. Thirdly and most widely, domestic leisure activities are the object, in certain categories of the immigrant population or the population stemming from immigration, of feminine overinvestment whereas activities revolving more so around the exterior, in particular sporting activities, are the object of a masculine overinvestment.
