Résumé

Le terme anthropocène désigne l’époque géologique contemporaine, caractérisée par une accélération de la transformation par l’être humain de son environnement à l’échelle de la planète tout entière. Les problématiques associées à ce terme invitent à des recherches interdisciplinaires dans lesquelles les sciences humaines et sociales ont leur partition à jouer.
