My research interests are at the intersection of culture, social interaction, and the media. I study both media depictions of interaction and interaction in everyday life. Most recently, I studied Israeli call-in radio and am now expanding my work to U.S. political talk radio, including the "notorious" Rush Limbaugh. I am also interested in television (e.g. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and other arenas of public participation, such as internet commentary and new call-in formats.
I have a big corpus of transcribed and untrasncribed interactions about politics, finances, personal topics and sports. I am looking for graduate students who are interested in financial discourse, political discourse and sports and about civic participation in the media in general. Additionally, I am looking for Israeli students who would like to study interactions in Hebrew.
