My main research interest is in the rise of ‘volunteering’ as an object of public interest and promotion, and the subjects that this form of participation produces. I studied Non-Governmental Organizations that promote and coordinate volunteering, as well as companies that encourage their employees to volunteer as part of Corporate Social Responsibility schemes.
My post-doctoral research project is titled “Conscripted Volunteering: An Ethnographic Study of Community Engagement Schemes in the Israeli Military”.
I have experience in a variety of ethnographic and qualitative research methods, including multi-sited ethnography. I conducted research in Israel, Belgium and the US.
