We are glad to announce the launcing of a new English website of the Smart Communications Institute at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, presenting the research and academic activities of the institute and of the faculty, the doctoral students and the post-doctoral fellows of the department of communication.

About the Department

The Noah Mozes Department of Communication and Journalism is the oldest and most distinguished department of communications in Israel. Founded in 1964, and affiliated to the Faculty of Social Sciences, it was until very recently the only Israeli communications department to offer degrees at all three levels of undergraduate and graduate study: as a result, graduates of its doctoral program form the backbone of the community of communication scholars in Israel.


The department’s current faculty members enjoy a reputation for research excellence in a range of fields within the discipline: political communication, media and cultural theory, audience reception studies, communication history, discourse and media, cinema and visual culture. Its alumni have not only gone on to occupy key positions within departments at other universities and colleges, but also include leading public figures in a variety of related professions – journalism, television, radio and film production, new media technologies, advertising and public relations, communications policy and regulation. 


Its emeriti – among them Professors Elihu Katz (founder of the Department, Founding Director of Israeli television and Israel Prize winner), Shoshana Blum-Kulka, Alan Rosenthal, Hanna Adoni, Raphael Nir and Yeshayahu Nir - are still prominent as researchers, teachers and practitioners in Israel and abroad.  The late professor Brenda Danet, one of the first members of the department, was among the pioneers in research and writing about the Internet and digital communication.[1]


The department’s status as the founding institution of Israeli communications, its long history of intellectual leadership in the field, and the high regard in which it is held abroad, are a legacy that present faculty members and students do their best to maintain and promote through their research, teaching and public service.
