Hamon Saliou et les siens : étude ethno-historique d'une famille de paysans du canton de Taulé (1877-1973)

Abstract : Hamon Saliou, born in 1877 an died in 1873 has lived almost a century in a really specific geographical aerea : the Taulé’s country and most largely in the Morlaix’s bay in Finistère (Brittany). He also experienced the vast majority of the changes that affect the country and he’s peasants during a century who was troubled by wars and a lot of kind of economicals, cuturals and socials crises. Whith this field investigation, the author tried to recreat the long life story of this man and his family for analysing and understanding how this peasant society’s from Brittany, and more precisely from Taulé’s country, has evolved from the XIXth century to the 1970’s. This study is inspired by the micro-historical method and tries to compare diferent areas and paesant populations mostly in France. But contrary to the classical micro-historical school it’s by the collect of oral archives and their analyses and trought the questioning and the recording of the witnesses that the study has been achieved. Trought the study of specifical institutions (wedding, transport, beliefs, technologicals and mechanicals innovations), humain relations (cohabitation, intergenerational tensions and conflicts) we can notice that three periods ermerge and they actually corresponds to classics periods of contemporary rural history, that is to say : the pre-war, the interwars period and the post-war period.
