Research Topic: ‎The Mediatization of ‎Literature in the Age of ‎Media
Advisor: Prof. Amit Pinchevski

I hold a B.A. in Hebrew literature and an M.A. in communication and journalism, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Alongside academic work, I'm a poet and editor. I published an original poetry book (2017) and edited several books and poetry anthologies (2011, 2014).

My dissertation is titled "The Mediatization of Literature in the Age of Media". The dissertation focuses on the changes in the field of literature caused by the development of the digital era. The research describes these changes through the theoretical concept of mediatization, which deals with meta-process and profound influences of the media. The research examines these changes from four standpoints:  creators, production and marketing process, the audience feedback, and the literary establishment.
