Rebecca has been selected as a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker 2013. The scheme gives her the opportunity to share her research with a wider audience, and to acquire useful broadcasting skills to help her achieve impact with her research in the future. BBC Radio 3 listeners will hear about her research on the role of demography in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the history and politics of reproduction in Israel.
She will now spend a year working with Radio 3 presenters and producers to develop her research and ideas into broadcasts. She will make her debut appearance on Radio 3's arts and ideas programme, Night Waves, and will be invited to make regular contributions to the network throughout the year. She will also deliver a talk at Radio 3's annual Free Thinking Festival of Ideas at the Sage, Gateshead in October 2013.
