Introduction
Combining qualitative analysis with other methods, I explore the role of place and local conditions in the formation of middle-class identities. Specifically, I explore place’s role in shaping class tastes, attitudes towards diversity and life-course patterns within the middle-classes. More recently I began to study the social foundations of residential choice making. Other projects include middle-class students’ choice of academic filed. and political defriending in Facebook.

During the 2014 Gaza war Facebook became a central arena for moral/political boundary work for Israeli users, resulting in unusually high rates of politically motivated tie dissolution. Cultural criteria were thus applied to restructure and symbolically cleanse social networks. We analyze Facebook’s visibility-structures, interview data and public...
