    Lecturer
  8. 2016-2016 - Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon
    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.

 Research Projects 

  1. 2019-2021 - CNRS
    DOOM (Systems-theory for the Disorders Of Online Media – Co-PI with Paolo Frasca) (Scientific Coordination)

    Funded by the special CNRS 80|Prime fund for interdisciplinary research, the project is a collaboration between myself and Paolo Frasca, mathematician at the GIPSA-lab of Grenoble. Together we will co-direct an interdisciplinary Ph.D. thesis on the disorders of digital communication, such as the formation of “filter bubbles” and the viral propagation of “junk news”. The project starts from the assumption that these information disorders are direct consequences of the contemporary media infrastructure and of the dynamics of collective attention that they generate. In order to capture these dynamics, this project advocates the mathematical modelling of the interplay between the medium (algorithmic component) and the users (human component). The resulting dynamics shall be explored by a system-theory approach, using notions such as feedback and stability.
