KEYWORDS : academic blogging, scientific discourse, textualization, digital discourse, gestures

ABSTRACT : From an explorative study conducted on the publications of Hypotheses, a blogging platform in the Humanities and Social Sciences, we highlight different ways of stating the actions by which the researcher develops knowledge: sensory-motor gestures of the speaker, whose textualization (Dondero, 2014) in the form of photographs or audiovisual clips reveals corporality; machinic gestures, leading to the production of potentially manipulable data maps; finally, the gestures of the writer (Paveau, 2016), invited to act on a text whose operativity offers the possibility to reproduce the hermeneutic gesturality of the researcher. This article aims to explore the variety of these gestures, and to propose a reading that highlights the challenges of knowledge production to which they respond.
