I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Communication at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My dissertation, “Archaeology of Hebrew Inscribing Machines” (advisor: Dr. Amit Pinchevski), focuses on the appearance of the modern technologies for recording Hebrew: typewriters, sound recordings and eventually Hebrew computer programs—media that served as infrastructure for the re-emergence of Hebrew since the mid-19 th century.
I have completed my MA, magna cum laude, in the Department of Communication at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, focusing on Trauma studies and visual culture. My MA thesis (advisor: Prof. Raya Morag), “Returning to the Site of Trauma: Representations of Germany in Israeli Contemporary Fiction Cinema”, explored the notion of return to Germany in Israeli Films and the way this return enables working-through processes in Israeli society that is still deeply traumatized by the Holocaust.
My BA (Dean’s Honors List, 2005/6) was carried out at the Department of Communication and at the Department of Comparative Literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, during which I immersed myself in theoretical aspects of cultural studies and hermeneutics and studied German as a third language.
