Passer les limites, rythmer le territoire. Paysage et mobilités du sanglier en Valbonnais (Isère, France)

Abstract : Our study takes place into the Valbonnais alpine valley (Isère, France) and is based on semi-structured interviews which are confronted with the analysis of the movements of a local population of wild boars. We aim to question the contribution of animal mobility to the landscape dynamics. The wild boar interacts with administrative limits, reveals and stimulates the spatial and economic controversies of human territories, it also leads, by its biology and spatiality, to question the usual analytic categories. We suggest to understand wild boar as a « boundary-animal » and to implement an interdisciplinary and participatory approach to elaborate a situated knowledge of the species and the issues related to its movements, and thus to explore how wild boars shape a living landscape.
