Jonathan Chibois is a researcher in political anthropology. At the crossroads of political anthropology, sociology of work and history of technology, his research work has as its central theme the question of the transformation of communication infrastructures within organisations since the end of the 19th century, with a particular interest in their digital transition.
The study of the French National Assembly for his doctoral thesis led him to specialise in parliamentary institutions. He is interested in the ordinary activities of deliberative assemblies around the world in order to identify their principles and structuring dynamics, based on ethnographic investigations. He thus takes as his object their infrastructures, i.e. the tools, procedures, bodies, and dynamics of circulation and cooperation that enable these institutions to exist as such.
