Réinventer la mer : précarité, épistémologie et récits

Reinventing the Sea: precarity, epistemology, narratives

Résumé

The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth's surface and contain 97 percent of the Earth's water. One way to reinvent the ocean, as Philip E. Steinberg points out, is not to consider it as a space outside the human beings who settle inside, i.e., on the land, but to look upon it as a mobile and dynamic space that is central to the flows of modern society.

Argument

The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth's surface and contain 97 percent of the Earth's water.  One way to reinvent the ocean, as Philip E. Steinberg points out, is not to consider it as a space outside the human beings who settle inside, i.e., on the land, but to look upon it as a mobile and dynamic space that is central to the flows of modern society.

Climate change and the rise in ocean levels have shown the precarious nature of human existence on earth. The Tsunami in 2004 shook the whole world by the amplitude of loss. As the contours of land are changing, known borders are shifting. This certainly has an impact, real and imaginary.  Migrants fleeing poverty and war are using makeshift crafts.

All over the world, the sea is being reinvented, as a means to resist and survive, as a strategic frontier to be redesigned (Arctic) and as home (cf. floating cities).
