Keren Tzuriel

I’m lucky enough for being a journalist since 1998, experiencing journalism struggle, adapt, morph and come to terms with online and social media (and surviving to tell it all). For the past six years I’ve been a magazine journalist at Calcalist, and at the same time graduated with honors from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. My thesis explored how confrontational and non-confrontational expression on social media effect political participation – whether offline, online or on social networks, and the role of efficacy in the process. Now as a PhD candidate at Tel Aviv University, I’m interested in political psychology, social media, political and civic engagement.
