Prof. Shaul R. Shenhav

I am an associate professor at the Department of Political Science, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the incumbent of the Herbert Samuel Chair in Political Science. My research interests include political narratives, political discourse, rhetoric, populism and Israeli politics. In recent years, I am co-leading with Professor Tamir Sheafer the DeppStory lab. The lab develops new methods for automated textual analysis based on a combination of topic modelling, deep learning and expert coding of discourse and narrative elements.
