Les ruines des jeux olympiques de Grenoble 1968. Le tremplin de saut à ski de Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte et ses fantômes

Abstract : The Ruins of the 1968 Grenoble Olympics. The Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte Ski Jump and its Ghosts ‪Barren lands or brownfield lands (a ‪ ‪friche‪ ‪ in French) are both the remains, the traces, and evidence of a past time. This concept deals with industry, port and mining brownfields, as well as tourism and sports wasteland. This article discusses in particular the case of the now forsaken ski jumping hill of the Olympic winter Games 1968. This work contributes to a social and cultural geography with concerned actors, images and spatial relationships (Di Meo & Buléon, 2005) in relation to a renewed approach of the fieldwork, close to an ethno-geography, which crosses a historiographical approach. This case study highlights the tensions in temporality logics, questions the practical and symbolic dimension of the development of a natural space and ultimately raises the political, social, economic, environmental and landscape stakes of the relation between memory and heritage.‪
