Heritage, defined as a vector of identity(ies) in time and space, the result of a collective appropriation constructed, under tension between use and conservation, between individual and collective (Rivaud and Cazals 2012), covers a set of varied and variable objects (Barrère et al. 2005, Landel and Sénil 2009, Réquier desjardin 2009).
In a broad sense, coastal territories are characterized by a diversity of heritages that are attracting growing interest from private and public actors. These territories are associated with natural heritage (diversity of ecosystems and species, ecosystem functions), cultural heritage (monuments, architecture, productive know-how), but also landscape heritage (exceptional and ordinary sites), which are at the same time bearers of protection and preservation issues, but also of economic development.
Traditionally, the characterization of wetland heritage is mainly based on the richness of flora and fauna (Comolet 1994). The natural heritage is defined as the set of goods whose existence, production and reproduction are the result of the activity of nature, which can be modified by man.
In the PAMPAS project, the heritage identity is also defined through the landscape objects present in the studied marshes, i.e. the Fier d'Ars on the Ile de Ré, the Tasdon marsh in La Rochelle and the Moêze-Brouage marsh in Brouage. It is a question of defining what these landscape and heritage objects are, what is the perception of these objects by the different users of the marsh and finally what could be their future in front of the risk of submersion.


The person recruited will have 3 main tasks for which he/she will have full responsibility. First, he/she will :
- analyze the landscape heritage objects in two periods: past and present. The idea is, from different sources (old maps, aerial photos, satellite images, but also tourist brochures, websites, personal photos on networks, etc.), to define which objects appear, which are voluntarily put forward on these different supports and to which we can attribute a landscape heritage function. We will be able to define, following this analysis, if what made the patrimonial identity of these sites in their landscape dimension to evolve in the time, what disappeared, which are the elements which persist, which are the new objects which appear (while keeping a critical glance because of the bias which can introduce the access to the new technologies in the diffusion of the image)?
- then to confront these results of the historical and current approach by images with the results of the surveys and the patrimonial identity cards carried out elsewhere within the framework of the project, to determine which is the perception of these objects by the various users and if they are perceived as patrimonial objects.
- Finally, in a third step, the idea here would be to take up the results of the WP2 of the PAMPAS project, i.e. the responses of the heritage objects of the natural component to the submersion hazard and to see how they could be translated into the landscape, what evolution(s) of the landscape they could provoke if the marshes were frequently submerged by the sea? what transformation can we expect? Everything that is mineral and of anthropic origin (shaped by man) can resist or be destroyed, but the morphology, fauna and flora will evolve to adapt to the new environmental conditions.


- skills in geographic and landscape analysis
- spatial analysis skills
- mastery of geographic information system (GIS) techniques
- interdisciplinary work
- sensitivity to the environment
- drawing skills would be a plus

Work Context

The person recruited will be hosted at the UMR LIENS. He/she will have to be involved in the PAMPAS project and be able to exchange with the other researchers of the project, in life and earth sciences.
