Les mondes de la chasse : contribution à une étude de rapports sociaux spatialisés en Seine-et-Marne et en Côte-d’Or

Abstract : This thesis, studying the social relationships linked to hunting, is contributing to a sociology of the lifestyles that shows how social relationships are linked to space, and how social classes are built through interactions. The first part recounts the constitution of the different hunting worlds on a national level, using historical and socio-demographical perspectives. Special attention is laid on the transformation of the conditions of hunting due to recent evolution of the rural and periurban spaces. The second and third parts are mainly based upon the analysis of data, which were collected using ethnographical methods on two contrasted spaces: the Germanois (Côte-d'Or) and around Bellifontain (Seine-et-Marne). On each field, different hunting groups have been observed: district (“commune”) shooting groups, private shooting groups, hunting with hounds crews. The members of these groups belong to different classes and fractions of these classes. This thesis studies the differentiated ways they cope with what is nowadays at stake in their activity, essentially the deterioration of the image of hunting and the “environmentalization” of their practices. The analysis focuses then on how some of them, representing different social classes and fractions of classes, organize and involve themselves into hunting. It allows to present the meanings of their commitment in keeping with their lifestyles.
