Fields of Interest
For the past 50 years or so, interpersonal "communication" has become a pervasive idea in western culture. Widely discussed in talk shows, advice columns and self-help books, commonly practiced in workshops and therapy sessions, and dominant in everyday thought and practice, "communication" is attributed far-reaching consequences both for individuals and the collective. Accordingly it has become an almost ubiquitous value of our society. My research focuses on the historical roots of this phenomenon, as well as its social manifestations, cultural meanings and normative implications.
Apart from my academic work, I am also an origami artist. I display my work in a jointly run studio, "PaperClay," located in Jerusalem's "Designers in the City" compound and online atwww.papertigerorigami.com. In addition, I teach a combined course of origami and math in a Jerusalem school for gifted children.
