Research

My research interests lie in the field of collective identity formation with particular focus on Israeli Jews from the Middle East and North Africa and Palestinians citizens of Israel. What are the motivations for groups and individuals to establish and join religious-political movement? How does the personal connect with the collective? To what degree is religious-political activism influences by the local political context? I base my contextualized research on ethnographic material collected on fieldtrips where I conduct interviews and observations.


I am a contributing member to the research network New Middle East Project (NewME) at the Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages.
