The diversity discourse in Israel
My research lies at the nexus of social conflicts at work organizations. I am currently examining how actors that promote diversity in workplaces promote and justify proposed actions; how the diversity discourse deals with the strong cultural and national conflicts between the populations it aims at integrating; and the implications of this approach for contact between diverse populations at work. At this stage, I examine these questions via a field-level ethnography, conducting observations of field level encounters such as courses and conferences, and interviewing key actors.
