Summary of my scientific work ((פירוט בעברית מופיע בסוף קורות החיים  

Over the years my research has focused on two fields related to the study of the African continent and its people: (1) the study of African migrant workers and African asylum seekers in Israel, and their return to Africa and (2) African Christianities including its roles within non-religious arenas.The later has held my interest for more than three decades including studies on the involvement of religious organizations in non- religious arenas, health included. The study of African migration has been my focus in the last two decades, however, in recent years this has broadened in terms of the population studied and the subjects researched. The outcome of all my research has been published in academic platforms. Below, I will elaborate upon each of the aforementioned fields.

  1. Migration and migrants

During these years I continued my research on African migrants in Israel focusing on asylum seekers. From 2006 to 2013, approximately 60,000 asylum seekers from Sudan and Eritrea entered Israel. Seeing them as agents of change rather than passive objects of life circumstances, I focused on their social, economic, and political activities. I examined the importance of these activities with respect to asylum seekers' efforts to take control over the realities of their lives and extend their power as individuals and communities. Three major issues stand at the heart of my research in this field: (1) the struggle over spaces of habitus, (2) activities within the religious-political arena, and (3) perceptions of health and sickness. In addition to researching asylum seekers living in Israel, I extended the study to those who returned to their homes, whether by their own free will or as a result of coercion or deportation. I questioned what has changed in them - their lifestyles, their interpersonal relations, their worldview – following what they underwent and the experiences they accrued in Israel. I focused on asylum seekers mainly from South Sudan who were forced to leave Israel in 2012 after their country received its independence. To the best of my knowledge, such tracking of African migrant workers, asylum seekers and refugees, expelled to their homes or returned to an unknown home is a pioneering research attempt.

Alongside the study of asylum seekers, I have continued my research among African migrant workers' communities in Israel, focusing on two populations: children of migrant workers granted civil status, and veteran migrant workers who marry Israeli citizens. The first focused on the meanings of Israel and being Israeli for them focusing on those who joined the IDF. The second  studied attitude of the Israeli legal system to mixed couples – citizens and non-Jewish migrants – upon requesting civil status by virtue of marriage. In 2020, with the outbreak of COVID 19 , I explored the unique modalities of conduct migrant caregivers in Israel developed in an attempt to cope with the lockdown. In 2021, together with a colleague we submitted two research proposals on the use of telemedicine by migrant caregivers.

2.African Christianities

Further to my early research on Christianities in Africa, I went back to studying Christian theologies as political spaces in Africa and the African diasporas. In addition, I have expanded my research concerning Christian religious identities of African labor migrants in Israel with special focus on Pentecostal groups. Within the Pentecostal arena, I studied a unique groups of Ethiopian Jews that migrated to Israel under the Law of Return, yet practice Pentecostal  Christianity.

Based on my previous research in East African related to HIV/AIDS prevention education, I joined an international research team that examined the effect of health education activities led by religious leaders and women groups on sickness rates in neglected tropical diseases. Based on our findings we submitted two grant proposals to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. Both were approved. 

As most of my research projects have been conducted using qualitative methodologies, particularly open ended in-depth interviews and the collection and analysis of personal narratives I have published several articles on ethical dilemmas arising from this kind of research methodologies.

 

Activities within the academic arena

For more than a decade, I headed Africa Studies at TAU as well as initiated and led the interuniversity African Studies program. Throughout the years, I have invested considerable time and efforts in widening those interested in topics related to the African continent,  within the academic arena and beyond. From 2012 through 2014, together with Prof. Joel and Prof. Cinamon we headed TAU Forum for Women and Gender Studies  to promote awareness to gender based barriers in the process of promoting women in academia and offered mechanisms to overcome them.

Extending scholarly discourse

Throughout the years I published my scientific work in academic platforms and at the same time directed these insights and understanding to the public arena. Simultaneously I try to bring insights from the public arena to enrich the research and deepen scientific insights. Hence, over the years, I volunteered in civic aid organizations assisting African migrants to cope with their daily realities in Israel and created enrichment frameworks – courses, seminars, workshops -  designated for government officials, activists and scholars within the migration arena, as well as for migrants and asylum seekers themselves.  For example, between 2013-2021 I initiated and led nine open access training courses to medical personnel, university students and activists. All courses focused on health related issues relevant to non Jewish migrants and asylum seekers. Courses were held in collaboration with leading hospitals, the UNHCR and TAU. "Transparent patient" course was carried  in all leading hospitals in Israel. Each course covered a wide range of topics related to medical and socio-cultural issues concerning  the use of health services by insurance-less non Jewish migrants in Israel. Over 600 people participated in these courses. Parallel to these courses I I initiated in 2014-2015 an English Tigrinya  medical interpretators training course. Within 4 months we trained dozens of Eritrean asylum seekers to be professional medical interpretators . The course graduates found work within the Israeli health system. We conducted research on the course and published our finding in three scientific publications.

2016 – 2021 President,  Ruppin Academic Center

In 2016, I was elected president of Ruppin Academic Center, one of the best public colleges in Israel. Under my leadership Ruppin expanded its academic training programs, advanced its faculty's research achievements, promoted innovative modalities of teaching, deepened its commitment to social responsibility and opened its gates to students from underprivileged backgrounds. Over several consecutive years, Ruppin Academic Center has been selected as one of the best public colleges in Israel. During my term, I initiated and developed the concept of WeLearn, dedicated to creating learning communities where students, faculty, employers, and members of local communities partner in the process of granting academic training. In an effort to make academic training relevant in a rapidly changing world we took three major steps: (1) the integration of essential life skills into all our curricula, (2) developed research and academic training in areas that will be relevant in the future namely: the sea and its resources, migration and social integration, Old age studies, and computer and information sciences. Finally (3) we developed a new interdisciplinary arena of research and academic training named STEMPATHY which combines STEM with empathy professions. such as nursing, social work, geriatric & psychology. In 2020 I was elected, unanimously, for a second term which due to administrative regulations, I had to quit and return to TAU.

(2) חקר נצרויות אפריקאיות ובכלל זה מעורבות של מערכות דתיות במרחבי חיים "לא דתיים."  המחקר בתחום זה מלווה אותי כבר שלושה עשורים ובכלל זה חקר פעילות ארגונים דתיים בסוגיות של בריאות וחולי. בחקר הגירה אני עוסקת כבר למעלה משני עשורים אולם בשנים האחרונות הורחב המחקר הן מבחינת אוכלוסיית המחקר והן מבחינת הנושאים הנחקרים. בכל אחד מתחומי המחקר פרסמתי בבמות אקדמיות ראויות והצגתי בכנסים בישראל ובעולם. 

בפסקאות הבאות ארחיב על כל אחד מתחומים אלו.

  1. הגירה ומהגרים

משנת 2009 מתמקד המחקר שלי במבקשי מקלט אפריקאים בישראל. בין 2006-2013 נכנסו לישראל כ 60,000 מבקשי מקלט מדרום סודאן, דארפור ואריתראה. המחקר שלי בחן את מבקשי המקלט כסוכנים של שינוי ולא כאובייקטים חסרי ישע , לפיכך הפנתי את הזרקור לפעילויות החברתיות, כלכליות ופוליטיות שלהם תוך השענות על התובנות של דה-סרטו (DeCerteau) אודות המשמעות והכוח של היומיום הבנאלי. באמצעות מחקר אתנוגרפי בחנתי את החשיבות של פעילויות אלו במאמצי מבקשי המקלט לשלוט במציאות חייהם ולהרחיב את כוחם כפרטים וכקהילות.  בתחום מחקר זה שלושה נושאים מרכזיים עמדו בלב העשייה המחקרית והם: (1) המאבק על מרחב מחייה, (2) פעילויות במרחב הדתי-פוליטי ו (3) תפישות של בריאות וחולי.  בנוסף פרסמתי שני מאמרים העוסקים במדיניותה של ישראל כלפי מבקשי מקלט.. בשנת 2019 יצא לאור ספר אקדמי בעריכתי (בשיתוף עם א. שיר) המקבץ מחקרי שדה העוסקים בחיי היום יום של מבקשי מקלט בישראל. הספר הינו אסופה של מחקרים של חוקרות וחוקרים צעירים כמו גם של מבקשי מקלט. זהו הספר הראשון והיחיד עד כה הנותן במה לחוקרים צעירים בנושא הגירה ופליטות כמו גם הראשון המשלב את קולם האוטנטי של נשואי המחקר.

לצד המחקר על מבקשי המקלט בישראל הרחבתי את המחקר על מצבם של מהגרים אפריקאים  שחזרו לביתם בין אם מרצונם ובין אם כתוצאה מגירוש.  בחנתי מה נשתנה בהם – באורחות חייהם, ביחסיהם הבינאישיים, בהשקפת עולמם – בעקבות ההתנסויות שחוו והניסיון שצברו בישראל?  המחקר החדש (שהוא המשכו של מחקר קודם שהתמקד במהגרי עבודה שחזרו למערב אפריקה) כולל מבקשי מקלט מדרום סודאן שאולצו בשנת 2012 לעזוב את ישראל לאחר שארצם קבלה עצמאות מסודאן. ככל הידוע לי, מעקב כזה אחר מהגרי עבודה ומבקשי מקלט שחוזרים הביתה מהווה נסיון מחקרי חלוצי.

בשנת 2011 ,בשיתוף עם שתי חוקרות נוספות, ערכתי ספר הבוחן במבט השוואתי נושאים הקשורים לעבודה, עובדים והגירה באפריקה. הספר יצא בתחילה כקובץ מאמרים מיוחד בכתב העת African Identities   ולאחר כשנה יצא בלונדון בהוצאה אקדמית.

לצד המחקר על מבקשי מקלט אני ממשיכה את המחקר בקרב קהילת מהגרי העבודה האפריקאים בישראל תוך התמקדות בשתי אוכלוסיות: ילדי מהגרי עבודה שזכו למעמד אזרחי  ומהגרי עבודה וותיקים הבאים בברית הנישואין עם אזרחים ישראלים. המחקר שהתמקד בילדי המהגרים בחן את המשמעויות של ישראל וישראליות עבורם. בכך הרחיב המחקר את הידע הקיים לא רק על ילדי מהגרים לא יהודים אלו אלא גם על הרחבת גבולותיה של החברה וזהות הישראלית.  במחקר נוסף בו השתתפו 3 חוקרים מתחום צבא וחברה, חקרנו את השתלבותם של ילדי מהגרי עבודה בצה"ל. יחד עם שני משפטנים חקרתי את יחסה של מערכת המשפט הישראלית לזוגות מעורבים בהם אחד מבני הזוג הוא אזרח והשני מהגר תוך דגש על התמודדות המערכת עם היבטים תרבותיים שונים של זוגיות ושותפות בעת בקשה לקבלת מעמד אזרחי מתוקף נישואין.  בשנת 2020 עם פרוץ משבר הקורונה, בשיתוף עם חוקרות נוספות, בחנתי את אופני ההתמודדות של עובדי סיעוד זרים בישראל עם הסגר תוך שימת דגש על פרקטיקות של הישרדות והעצמה אישית וקהילתית. בשנת 2021 הגשתי שתי הצעות מחקר בנושא שימוש בשירותי רפואה מרחוק (telemedicine) על ידי עובדי סיעוד זרים. ההצעות הוגשו למרכז הלאומי לחקר שרותי הבריאות ומדיניות הבריאות (NIHP) ולביטוח הלאומי. למחקר זה יש משמעויות הן ברמה המקומית והן ברחבי העולם העובר לשימוש בטלהרפואה באמצעות עובדי סיעוד זרים.

  1. חקר נצרויות אפריקאיות

בהמשך למחקריי הראשונים שעסקו בנצרויות באפריקה, ולצד המחקרים על זהויות דתיות של מהגרים יזמתי ביחד עם פרופ' אוריה שביט (חוקר איסלאם) קבוצת מחקר – במימון ון ליר -  שעניינה המפגשים בין מסורת, מודרנה ופוסט-מודרנה כמעצבים של תיאולוגיות על תנועות הגירה בנות זמננו. הדיון ההשוואתי התמקד בנצרות, באסלאם וביהדות. תוצאות קבוצת המחקר התפרסמו במאמר משותף אשר כתיבתו הובלה על ידי אוריה ועל ידי בחלקים שווים תוך שילוב שני חוקרים צעירים. בנוסף, הרחבתי את המחקר בנושא זהותם הדתית של מהגרי עבודה אפריקאים . תוצרי המחקר פורסמו במספר מאמרים.

במהלך התקופה הנידונה חזרתי לחקור מהגרים שעלו מאתיופיה בזכות חוק השבות אך זהותם הדתית בישראל היא נוצרית . המחקר התעמק בקבוצה המעניינת והקטנה הזו המאתגרת הן את הנרטיב היהודי של העולים מאתיופיה והן את הנרטיב הנוצרי של מהגרים מאפריקה בישראל. המחקר הראה כי הנצרות בגירסתה הפנטקוסטאלית יצרה בישראל מטרייה רחבה תחתיה הסתופפו יוצאי אתיופיה שעלו כיהודים לצד מהגרי עבודה נוצרים מניגריה. את תוצאותיו של המחקר פרסמתי כפרק בספר מדעי שעסק בזהויות ספיריטואליות אלטרנטיביות בישראל.

לאחרונה חזרתי לעסוק בחקר תיאולוגיות נוצריות כמרחבים פוליטים באפריקה. בנוסף התבוננתי בעין ביקורתית על חקר דתות באפריקה תוך התמקדות במחקרי שדה ביבשת אפריקה ובתפוצה האפריקאית. על בסיס מחקריי הקודמים שעסקו באתיופיה כמו גם אלו שעסקו בפעילות של ארגונים דתיים בסוגיות של בריאות וחולי, בעיקר בהקשר של מיגור מגיפת האיידס, חברתי לקבוצת מחקר העוסקת במיגור מחלקות טרופיות נדירות באתיופיה באמצעות שילוב של טיפול תרופתי עם חינוך לבריאות באמצעות מנהיגים דתיים וקבוצות נשים. המחקר בחן את תוצאותיה של פעילות מאורגנת שכללה חלוקת תרופות מבוקרת ופעילות הסברתית תוך התמקדות בהשפעת הפעילות על עקומת התחלואה. תוצאות המחקר התפרסמו במאמר משותף. על בסיס המחקר הגשנו לאורך השנים שתי הצעות למימון פעילות ומחקר לקרן ביל ומלינדה גייטס. ההצעה הראשונה זכתה למימון. במהלך 2021  - 2022 יעובדו הנתונים על ידנו החוקרים ויוכנו פרסומים מדעיים נוספים. בשל העובדה כי כלי המחקר המרכזיים שלי הם שילוב של כלי מחקר היסטוריים עם כלים איכותניים, בעיקר איסוף וניתוח סיפורי חיים פרסמתי שלושה מאמרים העוסקים בדילמות האתיות הנובעות מתוך המחקר בסוגה זו.

 

בשולי הדברים אוסיף כי בשנת 2009 התחלתי מחקר איכותני בקרב משפחות משולבות בישראל יחד עם פרופ' צבר בן יהושע. המחקר התמקד בנשים וגברים, עם או בלי ילדים משלהם שנכנסו לקשר משפחתי עם בן/ת זוג שיש לו/ה ילדים מקשר קודם. המחקר פורסם בספר בהוצאת שוקן.

למרות העובדה שכמחצית מהמשפחות הישראליות הן "משפחות חדשות," המחקר שלנו היה הספר הראשון  שעסק במבנה משפחתי זה באופן מדעי ומקיף הכולל את נקודות המבט ההוריות והילדית כאחד. בין 2016-2018 עדכנו והרחבנו  את סקירת הספרות כך שתהייה רלוונטית לעולם, צמצנו את החלקים הרלוונטים רק לישראל, תרגמנו לאנגלית והוצאנו לאור בהוצאה דיגיטאלית של אמזון.

 

הוראה והנחיית תלמידים מתקדמים

לאורך השנים השקעתי זמן ומחשבה רבה בהוראה ובפיתוח קורסים חדשים הן מבחינת התוכן והן מבחינת אופני ההוראה והלמידה ובכלל זה משלבי עשייה חברתית והתנסות מעשית רלוונטית. לאורך כל השנים אני זוכה לציונים גבוהים במיוחד בסקרי ההוראה. נמנתי לא אחת על רשימות המרצים המציינים של הפקולטה למדעי הרוח. בשנים 2014 ו 2015 נבחרתי ל"רשימת המאה" מרצים מצטיינים של אוניברסיטת ת"א. בשנת 2016 נבחרתי לאחת מעשר "חוקרת מעוררת השראה" של אוניברסיטת ת"א.  לאורך השנים הנחתי 8 תלמידי דוקטורט ועשרה תלמידי מוסמך.

 

פעילות ציבורית בזירה האקדמית

במשך למעלה מעשור עמדתי בראש לימודי אפריקה באוניברסיטת ת"א. בנסיון לחזק תחום דעת זה כ ולאגם משאבי הוראה ומחקר עמדתי בראש צוות שהקים את התוכנית ללימודי אפריקה בין אוניברסיטאים. התוכנית – שהיתה ראשונה מסוגה בישראל – זכתה לתמיכה של המל"ג, הות"ת ולמימון של  קרן יד הנדיב. בניית התוכנית חייב יצירת מנגנוני שיתופי פעולה בין אוניברסיטאות מורכבים. לאורך 13 שנים פעלה התוכנית בהצלחה ועשרות של בוגרות ובוגרים של לימודי אפריקה השתלבו באופן מיטבי בשוק התעסוקה. בשנת 2021 נסגרה התוכנית.  לאורך השנים הקמתי פורומים מחקריים העוסקים באפריקה, קידמתי תלמידי מחקר וארגנתי כנסים בינלאומיים. במקביל גייסתי כספים בארץ ובחו"ל כדי לתמוך בסטודנטים מצטיינים , רובם מאוכלוסיות מרובות חסמים, כמו גם לקדם סטודנטים המשלבים בין הצטיינות לפעילות אקטיביסטים עם ובקרב אוכלוסיות אפריקאיות בישראל.   בין השנים 2012-2014 עמדתי בראשות הפורום ללמודי נשים ומגדר ביחד עם פרופ' יואל ופרופ' צינמון. מטרת הפורום היתה לקדם חשיפה של מחקר בנושאים מגוונים תוך דגש על זווית מגדרית כמו גם לקדם את המודעות לסוגיות מגדריות המהוות חסם גלוי וסמוי לקידום נשים באקדמיה.

 

הרחבת השיח המחקרי – מהמחקר לשדה ובחזרה.

מחקריי מעוגנים בשיטות המחקר האיכותני גם בשל התאמתן לאופי המחקר וגם בשל הרצון לפרוץ את גבולות מגדל שן אקדמי. לאורך כל שנות המחקר תרגמתי את ההתבוננות המדעית לקול, לתובנה ולניתוח מציאות המכוּונים בראש ובראשונה לפרסום מדעי אולם לצד זה גם אל הזירה הציבורית. ולהיפך – אני מנסה מתוך הפעילות בזירה הציבורית המאפשרת לי חיבורים ישירים עמוקים ומשמעותיים עם מהגרים אפריקאים -  להעשיר את המחקר ולהעמיק את התובנות המדעיות.  כך, לאורך השנים פעלתי בהתנדבות בארגוני סיוע אזרחיים המסייעים למהגרים להתמודד עם קשיי הקיום בישראל. וגם יצרתי מסגרות העשרה המיועדות לאנשי ממשל, ארגונים אזרחיים והמהגרים עצמם. לדוגמא בין השנים 2013-2021 יזמתי והובלתי תשע הכשרות חוץ אקדמיות לסטודנטים של לימודי אפריקה, לצוותים רפואיים ופעילי זכויות אדם שהתמקדו בבריאות של מהגרים , פליטים וחסרי מעמד. יוזמה זו היא תולדה של מחקר בקרב קבוצות אלו, כולל איתור האתגרים הגלומים במפגש בין המהגרים לנותני שירות ישראלים, בדגש על המרחב הבריאותי. הקורסים אורגנו בשת"פ עם בתי חולים בישראל, סוכנות האו"ם לפליטים והתוכנית ללמודי אפריקה של אוניברסיטת ת"א.  הקורס  "חולים שקופים" הועבר  5 פעמים בארבעה בתי חולים מרכזיים בישראל כל אחד מהם כלל 40 שעות אקדמיות בהם נלמדו מכלול הגורמים המשפיעים על בריאותם ורווחתם של פליטים וחסרי מעמד בישראל. עד היום השתתפו למעלה מ 600 אנשי מערכת הבריאות בקורסים. בשנת - 2014  יצרתי את הקורס "פה אחד" ללמוד יסודות התרבות והשפה הטיגרינית. הקורס ניתן באוניברסיטה ולצד הסטודנטים השתתפו בו גם פעילים בארגוני סיוע  וצוות רפואי מתל השומר. בשנת 2014 יזמתי והובלתי קורס מתורגמנים רפואיים למבקשי מקלט אריתראים בישראל. עשרות  הוכשרו  ורבים מצאו עבודה במערכת הבריאות הישראלית.  את הקורס ליוויתי במחקר שתוצאותיו פורסמו בשלושה מאמרים מדעיים.

 

2016 – 2021 נשיאת המרכז האקדמי רופין

בשנת 2016 נבחרתי לנשיאת המרכז האקדמי רופין והובלתי אותו – בשיתוף עם חברי הסגל האקדמי והמנהלי - להישגים רבים  ובכלל זה פתיחת תוכניות אקדמיות חדשניות, קידום איכות ההוראה, העמקת המחויבות לשינוי חברתי בקרב סטודנטים וסגל ועוד. במשך מספר שנים רצופות זכה המרכז האקדמי רופין באחד משלושת המקומות הראשונים בסקר שביעות סטודנטים ארצי שנערך בקרב כל הסטודנטים מכל המוסדות בארץ.

בשנות כהונתי הובלתי ברופין את  חזון ה Welearn  הדוגל ביצירת קהילות לומדות במרחב האקדמי בהן שותפים סטודנטים, סגל, נציגי התעשייה ובני הקהילות המקומיות. בנוסף, כחלק מהתמודדות עם אתגרי המחר העלומים, נערכו שינויים משמעותיים בתוכניות הלימוד בכל התארים תוך שימת דגש על הקניית מיומנויות חיוניות לסטודנטים להשתלבות מיטבית בשוק העבודה העתידי ובכלל זה : איסוף וניתוח מידע, מיקוד מסרים ופרזנטציה, למידה מבוססת על פתרון בעיות, עבודה בצוות , אמפטיה ואנגלית.  לצד כל אלו המשיך המרכז בהובלתי לחקור ולהכשיר את דור העתיד בארבעה תחומי מפתח : חקר הים ומשאביו, הגירה ושילוב חברתי, הגיל השלישי ומדעי המחשב והמידע. לצד לימוד דיסציפלינרי מעמיק יצרנו ברופין שילובים בין תחומיים חיוניים לעתיד ובכלל זה STEMPATHY המשלב את מקצועות ה STEM – Science Technology Engineering Mathematics    עם מקצועות האמפתיה ובכלל זה סיעוד, עבודה סוציאלית ופסיכולוגיה קלינית גרונטולוגית. בשנת 2020 נבחרתי פה אחד
