Gilles-Éric Séralini ou la transgression des médiations « traditionnelles » du savoir ?

Abstract : Gilles-Éric Séralini is a French biologist known for his radical positions against GMOs and pesticides, in particular glyphosate. In 2012, the publication of one of his articles caused a major scientific controversy associated with a very strong media controversy: “The Séralini Affair”. This article questions the media treatment of the “Séralini Affair”, as well as the original advertising and media strategies adopted by Gilles-Éric Séralini, criticized by numerous researchers and journalists. Beyond a possible transgression of traditional knowledge mediations, we also observe the sensitive communication strategies implemented by Monsanto to have the article withdrawn as well as the repercussions of the case on the figure of the researcher in the media and in the scientist community.
