Histoire sociale comparée de Fumel, Penne, Villeneuve et Aiguillon en Agenais au XVIIIe siècle

Abstract : From the perspective of a contribution to the history of Aquitaine, the study will seek to set a sufficiently representative spatial framework - i.e. the Valley of the Lot to Fumel at the confluence with the River Garonne. The fact to add to our research, the area of the confluence place automatically our study in the dependence of the garonnais axis, and outlet downstream that is the port city of Bordeaux, is known to the extraordinary dynamism in the 18th century. What are the strategies of our four communities facing the Centre of Bordeaux attraction that impulse to the descent as to the dates, commercial traffic largely dependent on the needs of a growing city and trade with the Islands. The constituent material of this social history is based on the quantitative treatment of inventories after deaths and marriages contracts, these more limited; a first evaluation of the corpus available for the four localities cited, and inventoried in the Archives of Lot-et-Garonne, close to five thousand documents. The comprehensive exploitation of these sources is arranged on three periods of ten or twenty years surrounding the limits of the eighteenth century and a period in the middle. Our survey data should allow the development of a social stratigraphy, significant testimony of the particular vocation of each of the localities. The comparative approach to the age-old duration will strengthen this perception by placing it in an evolutionary dynamics in the long term. We also consider a reading more in depth, closer to the individual, as we invite the current historiographical reflection around behaviors. Will social ascent and decommissioning be readable as a voluntary strategies or reproduction of a model based on and in its category of membership, widely reported by the family universe?
