Transitions alimentaires en rural : pratiques et représentations habitantes

Abstract : While transition to sustainable food appears as an urban phenomenon, this article focuses on the practices and representations of the inhabitants of peri-urban and rural areas as eaters, residents and citizens. The article is based on a microsocial and qualitative approach conducted in four municipalities located on the Massif du Pilat and the territory of the Boucle du Rhône in Dauphiné. A survey conducted with 90 inhabitants revealed several specificities related to the rural and peri-urban context : a paradoxical relationship of geographical proximity to agriculture and farmers, greater logistical constraints for supply, and the transmission of know-how about meat. But the relationship of inhabitants to agriculture and food is impacted by global societal dynamics. This is reflected in the affirmation of a reflexivity around food, the reinvestment of practices and know-how around plants and the emerging social dynamics around food. Thus practices and representations of rural and periurban areas inhabitants is built on several socio-spatial scales, between anchorage and opening.
