Pratiques sportives et mises en paysage (Alpes, Calanques marseillaises)

Abstract : The concept of "landscape" is introduced in the relation that people involved in outdoor sports have with the space they occupy. On the basis of long fieldwork conducted in the Ailefroide Valley (in the Alps) and the Calanques (near Marseille) among joggers, hikers and climbers, the hypothesis is formulated that these persons, owing to the nature of their activities, have ways of appreciating the landscape other than a purely visual one: the body immersed in nature is actively involved in defining nature. Through sports, a sensory knowledge emerges based on the individual’s kinesthetic experience.
