Émergence et médiatisation des controverses sociales à l’ère des réseaux socionumériques. Le cas de Bois Blanc (La Réunion) et de Tim Hunt (Grande-Bretagne)

Abstract : This thesis examines how social controversies emerge and are mediated by news media through the prism of social networks. To do this, we undertook an analysis of two cases of social controversies. One, on a local scale, concerns local residents’ opposition to a stone-pit project in the Reunion Island, while the other, with international news media coverage, relates to a feminist movement against a British scientist's comments. The thesis mobilizes five communicational and sociological approaches, namely socio-technical mediation, visibility approaches, the sociology of public problems, the transplatform approach and the technodiscursive approach. Our empirical research employs a mixed method approach, namely qualitative analysis, of interviews and digital traces. It combines a thematic analysis of (techno) discourse and a lexical and thematic quantitative analysis. Our main results show that the subject of the claims determines the dynamics of digital borders. Furthermore, the actors' strategy, the exploitation of their relational capital and the technical configuration of the digital social network are involved in the emergence and maintenance of mobilization. We also found that despite the visibility of protest speeches on the media scene, the traditional mainstream still controls the public scene access. Finally, social controversies cannot be separated from thesocio-political contexts in which they emerge and evolve.
