    HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches)
    My HDR thesis provides a much-welcomed occasion to put together a comprehensive account of what Controversy Mapping is to me. It is CM that brought me to the médialab, it is the course I have been teaching for the last 8 years and the approach that supported most of my projects. CM is a method with a solid tradition and an upward trajectory, increasingly used around the world for teaching and research. Yet, CM still lacks its instruction manual – a text that would distill its unusual brew of STS reflections and digital developments. My HDR thesis is an effort in this direction.
