Bio Statement: 
I am the Jim Joseph Professor of Education and Jewish Studies in the Stanford Graduate School of Education. Most of my research revolves around the question of how people develop relationships with religious traditions, ideas, and practices in non-scholastic settings. I've written a book about Yiddish language radio, edited a volume about an influential early 20th century Jewish cartoonist, and co-authored a volume about contemporary synagogue life, as well as a bunch of essays about Jewish online social networks, contemporary Jewish identity, Israel, and sound studies. I've just finished a manuscript on Evangelical worship music, and I'm embarking on a project exploring the educational dimension of Jewish cultural festivals. Even old media was new at one point, and all media is "new" at this point, and I'm very much interested in the ways that changes in media facilitate changes in the broader cultures in which those media participate.
