In this study we use the Covid-19 pandemic as a revealing case of some emerging dynamics in techno-scientific controversies, opening a dialogue between the STS tradition and Norbert Elias' theoretical reflection, in particular on the processes of "civilization" and "decivilization". Our theoretical model is empirically examined by means of a CATA (Computer-Assisted Text Analysis), carried out from data generated by public pages and active users on Facebook Italy in the period January 2020-July 2021 (texts N > 5.5 million) and, to a lesser extent, other media sources (transcripts of TV debates, newspaper interviews, Instagram and Twitter).

Abstract

In this study we use the Covid-19 pandemic as a revealing case of some emerging dynamics in techno-scientific controversies, opening a dialogue between the STS tradition and Norbert Elias' theoretical reflection, in particular on the processes of "civilization" and "decivilization". Our theoretical model is empirically examined by means of a CATA (Computer-Assisted Text Analysis), carried out from data generated by public pages and active users on Facebook Italy in the period January 2020-July 2021 (texts N > 5.5 million) and, to a lesser extent, other media sources (transcripts of TV debates, newspaper interviews, Instagram and Twitter).
