Abstract : In the context of Quebec’s Strategic environmental assessment on shale gas, we intended to explore a front of interdisciplinarity, bringing the importance of place (as triptyc of actors/space/time) and collective action in the process of social acceptability. Following a complex definition of social acceptability, this paper focuses on the micro-social process of coordination, social interpretation and construction of the meaning tied to an object. Thus, three different methodologies were taken in order to capture a “photo” of contextualized rationalities offered in debates, a “radiography” of their relationships with macro-structural factors and a “movie” of social interactions in a specific territory. In conclusion, territorial actors have, in such an unusual and uncertain situation, some real potential to influence a process that is more open and interactive than it may appear at first.
