Academic Background and Fields of Interest
I joined the Hebrew University in 2004, after completing my doctoral research at McGill University. My research interests include philosophy of communication, media theory, and modern social thought. More specifically, I’m interested in the ethical aspects of the limits of communication, in media as means of witnessing and memory, and in various “pathologies” of communication and their construction. My current work is concerned with the mediation of trauma, the Eichmann trial being the principle case study.
At the Hebrew University, I teach courses on the history of communication technologies, theories of communication and media, witnessing, media and memory, and urban culture.
