The Saharan Oasis under the Challenge of its Landscape, The Jerid as an Example

Tuesday 10 January 2012 - Vincent Battesti

Chapter (in English) published in Virginie Lefebvre, with Aziza Chaouni (eds.), Desert Tourism: tracing the fragile edges of development, Cambridge (MA), Harvard University Press, 2012.

Certainly, oasian landscapes are “built nature”, but we maybe have to find out now by whom they were built… The oasis: a place to work or a place to stroll? The usual local definition of the garden manages a place for leisure and work unlike European tourists who underestimate the anthropic quality of a palm grove. An ethnoecology of the oasis landscape deals with the cross-actions of practices and narratives of various actors of this specific desert space.
