L’agriculture en représentation(s). Luttes médiatiques, luttes syndicales.

Abstract : Political science, like rural sociology, has always been interested in the complexity of ties between rural areas and farmers. Here, we examine the “forgotten history” of a scientific literature that decrypts the relationship between the media and farmers. We offer insight into the evolution of this relationship from the 1960s to the present. Farmers were once greatly valued in the media. There was a tacit agreement between members of the farming, government and journalistic elite on the portrayal of the modern farmer figure. And yet this unity began to dissolve in the 1980s. Farmers were challenged in the public eye: awareness was raised about union struggles, doubt was cast on the cost of agricultural activities financed by society, new environmental concerns arose, promoted by journalists, and a series health-related crises flourished in the 1990s.
