This talk kicks off the 2021 Schusterman Seminars: advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students, and open to all, presenting the latest research in Israel studies. This semester, we are examining issues of identity, seeking the nuance in gender, religion, nationality and more. The series is presented by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
Nechumi Yaffe is a faculty member in the Department of Public Policy at Tel Aviv University. She completed her post-doctoral research at Princeton University, in affiliation with the Daniel Kahneman Center of Behavioral Science and Public Policy, and the University Center for Human Values. Dr. Yaffe’s research examines, from a social psychology perspective, how identity, social norms and authority play a role in creating and preserving poverty.
Her work focuses on the ultra-Orthodox (Haredi) community in Israel and America. Before beginning her doctoral studies, she was an advisor for the Haredi educational system. She wrote the new history curriculum and textbook now used by all Haredi high schools in Israel. Nechumi earned a Ph.D. in political science from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, under the supervision of Avner de-Shalit, Eran Halperin and Tamar Saguy. In her vision, research and practice are intertwined, and her academic work is driven by the commitment to improving, reaching out and helping the community.+ More... - Less...
