Launched in 2012 by the François Sommer Foundation and the Glénat Editions, Billebaude is a journal of exploration and reflection on the uses and representations of nature.
Each semester, the magazine offers around a theme - the wolf, the forest, rurality, etc. - contributions from researchers, journalists, actors in the field, artists. In a spirit of openness, the journal forges links between the world of research, art and that of environmental management around the issues of nature conservation. Aware that the ecological and economic crisis calls for the reconstruction of new knowledge where science dialogues with culture and management with traditional knowledge and practices, the journal functions as a laboratory of ideas and exchanges.
Billebaude n ° 17
Released on February 3, 2021
Returning to the myths and symbols with which its antlers have been decked out, this issue will explore how the deer has been a central figure in the imagination of the wild in the West, and has done so since Antiquity. We will see how these representations, renewed in the contemporary ecological context, are interwoven with the history of the real presence of the deer in European and French forests in particular.
