The cartography of controversies, or controversy mapping, is a technique developed by Bruno Latour that aims to explore and visualize controversies in science and technology. On this website can be found all the controversy mapping projects that have been realized since the beginning of the course.
It works as a didactic adaptation of the Actor-Network theory. This method has been adopted in several universities across Europe and the United States, including the Communications School at Sciences Po Paris.
Recently, the cartography of controversies was strengthened even further thanks to the creation of an European Union consortium called MACOSPOL (Mapping Controversies in Science and Technology for Politics).
