With August coming to a close, Avshalom Ginosar has completed his year as a Visiting Fellow at the Quello Center, and has returned to Israel. He left the James and Mary Quello Center with a beautiful photograph of Haifa from Mt Carmel, but also left us with much appreciation for his collaboration over the past year. Among his many contributions to the research environment of the Center, Avsha applied his journalism background to writing some engaging blogs about selected Quello Center events. Most importantly, his curiosity, experience and willingness to engage in all of our activities and discussions made him a valued member of our academic community.
Avsha completed work on a number of publications while at the center, and became a valuable member of our academic community. His work focused on privacy issues online and also study of what he has called patriotic journalism in the online and offline world.
In Israel, Avsha returns to his position as a Senior Lecturer at The Academic College of Yezreel Valley, focusing his research on media governance, policy and regulation, all topics aligned well with the Quello Center. He will be missed at the Quello Center, but we hope to develop comparative and international projects with Avsha in due course.
