Savoir nager, une richesse culturelle : Analyse comparative de l’enseignement de la natation à Canton, Dakar et Paris

Abstract : Our study considers body technical transmission (Mauss, 1950, 366) in a context of sport practices globalization. After an initial empirical study of the swimming teaching in China, Senegal and France, we postulated the existence of cultural differences in representations playing a significant role in the training process. In Canton, Dakar and Paris, we established a comparative study of contexts both cultural (historical, sportive and traditional) and educative (pedagogical and didactic). We used a questionnaire as a base to apprehend swimmers representations in the three cities. Its statistical analysis was backed by qualitative data gathered from observations and interviews. We conclude that representations of water and swimming training differ among the studied populations. Therefore, this study calls for considering swimming in a local process of body technical transmission, blending a culture-specific part with globalized techniques
