De la rapière à la raquette. : Les étudiants allemands face au sport : débats et pratiques autour de 1900

Abstract : This article studies the difficult adoption of sport among German students at the turn of the 20th century. Contrary to their French counterparts, many of whom practiced sports from the 1890s onwards, German students strongly debated the very legitimacy of practicing sports, which they perceived as inconsistent with their ethos. Sport was seen as less dignified and less truly German than gymnastics and especially less so than the Mensur, a form of ritualized student duel. This was particularly true for members of elitist and duelist corporations, whereas less prestigious associations increasingly promoted sport after 1900. The practice of sports thus gradually became a competitive issue between the different student organizations.
