Stéphane Tonnelat is a research fellow with the French CNRS at the CIRHUS laboratory at New York University (NYU). He conducts ethnographic research on various types of urban public spaces in Paris and New York, attempting to link the study of such spaces with theories of the public sphere. His main fields of investigation are urban interstices (wastelands, empty lots, construction sites), parks and gardens, subways and ferries. He is currently working on two book projects: one with William Kornblum on interactions in the New York subway, especially at two stations in Queens on the #7 line and one with Stefan Shankland on the role of art in an urban development project in Paris.
