I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Communication, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My Ph.D. research topic is “Mediated Intentions: journalists’ role in attributing and distributing political intentions”, Supervised by Prof. Zohar Kampf.

I hold a Master’s degree in communication and a Bachelor’s degree in Hebrew Language and Communication, both from the Hebrew University. In my Master’s dissertation, I explored the scope of journalistic interpretation through the case study of reporting political condemnation of Israel.

My main areas of interest are political discourse, journalistic mediation and intentions.

 

My research focuses on the role of intentions in news stories, and on journalists’ role as mediators of political intentions. I use the report of speech acts - verbal vehicles for encoding and decoding intentions - to examine how journalists interpret statements and actions. By so doing, I ask to shed new light on the ways in which journalists construct events and relationships in the social and political arenas.
