Interests:

I use qualitative textual analysis to study politics (Israeli, American, shows like Rush Limbaugh's, online commenting in Israel Talkback), economics (Dave Ramsey's), culture (Israeli, American, concepts like fandom, gender), and interaction (in all forms and formats). I study these constructs by analyzing how people do them in their everyday life, on traditional media (radio, TV), online (online comments, Facebook participation), or in ordinary interactions. I use discourse analysis from various perspectives, as I follow Wittgenstein (the latter one), Durkheim, and Weber (although politically speaking I'm closer to Marx). 
I work hard and publish quite a lot of research, and will be happy to instruct graduate students how to follow through with this profession.
I am looking for graduate students who are interested in financial discourse, political discourse and civic participation. Additionally, I am looking for Israeli students who would like to study interactions in Hebrew.
