Academic Background and fields of Interest
Since 2006 I'm working as a lecturer at the Open University and as an assistant Prof. at The College of Management in various courses for undergraduates (E.g. Communication as Culture; Growing-up with Television; Leisure, Culture and Communication- Comparative Aspects; Communication in history)
My research interest
Although there is a certain decrease in the amount of time people watch television, there is an increase in the amount of time people watch television content through different platforms. This is why I'm interested in television content and the relationship between television and new media and how it changes the media institutions. I'm also interested in the production of children’s television since producing content for this age group elucidates and intensifies the difficulties that television producers face today stemming from the need to engage parents and children while adhering to regulatory and ethical restrictions, which in turn, aggravates the economic stress.
Aiming to clarify questions regarding the production of children’s television, I conducted extensive ethnographic research at the Hop! Group, a central communication organization in Israel that broadcasts to preschoolers.
