Un lieu en controverse : une controverse qui fait lieu(x)

This paper studies how the idea of space (such as involved in a controversy about the location of a hight-tension power line in Normandy) contributes to remodeling and reorienting the controversy, as much as the controversy remodels and orients the space. The base of the study was a sociological approach to science and technology. Thought, as our analysis progresses, the idea of place (instead of space) seems better adapted to explain the complexity of the geography of the controversy. The place translates the capacity to contain all of these heterogeneus elements and to re-organize them.
