On Controversy Analysis as a Digital Method; in Science, Technology & Human Values, v. 40 (5), Sept. 2015; accessed via NCBI Apr. 29, 2021Abstract (shift the thematic focus from controversy analysis to issue mapping) Situating Controversy Analysis as a Digital Method (Broadly defined, controversy analysis as a digital method involves the use of computational techniques to detect, analyze, and visualize public contestation over topical affairs. The digital implementation of controversy analysis is best understood as an interdisciplinary undertaking. Different fields currently contribute to this project including the sociology of science and technology, computer science, media studies, communication, and policy analysis as well as various professional fields including design, journalism, and advocacy. Work across these fields deploys digital techniques for the capture, analysis, and visualization of--often Internet-based--data in order to render legible disputes about public issues. Building on existing approaches developed in the above fields from the 1970s to analyze public and policy debates and enable intervention in these debates, analysis of digital controversies has clear affinities with the applied research method of "debate mapping")
