Product Description

As disputes concerning the environment, the economy, and pandemics occupy public debate, we need to learn to navigate matters of public concern when facts are in doubt and expertise is contested.

Controversy Mapping is the first book to introduce readers to the observation and representation of contested issues on digital media. Drawing on actor-network theory and digital methods, Venturini and Munk outline the conceptual underpinnings and the many tools and techniques of controversy mapping. They review its history in science and technology studies, discuss its methodological potential, and unfold its political implications. Through a range of cases and examples, they demonstrate how to chart actors and issues using digital fieldwork and computational techniques. A preface by Richard Rogers and an interview with Bruno Latour are also included.

A crucial field guide and hands-on companion for the digital age, Controversy Mapping is an indispensable resource for students and scholars of media and communication, as well as activists, journalists, citizens, and decision makers.

Product Reviews


“Controversy Mapping shows how we can use social research to bring controversies back to the surface of knowledge and public life, and how it can help to recover the power of controversy to transform what's possible. The book provides everything you need – the ideas, examples, and techniques – to start doing controversy analysis.”Noortje Marres, University of Warwick“Venturini and Munk have produced a significant book that traces the genealogy of controversy mapping back to its origins in actor-network theory to its incarnations in digital methods. Through a lucid and engaging narrative and series of visualizations, they provide a comprehensive ‘field guide’ to the major figures, theories, concepts, and methods that make up the practices of controversy mapping.”Evelyn Ruppert, Goldsmiths, University of London
