The fellowship allows accomplished and promising journalists a year of study at Harvard and time to pursue individual areas of inquiry as well as integrated class work to enhance their expertise.

“This is an outstanding group of journalists poised to have a growing influence on their news organizations and on journalism more broadly,” Nieman Foundation curator Ann Marie Lipinski said in a statement. “They represent a wide range of interests and backgrounds but share an intense commitment to using their year at Harvard to gain new knowledge, strengthen their work and enhance the prospects for journalism overall.”

The statement said that Katz’s studies will focus on the use of censorship in the digital age to determine whether it is relevant and consistent with democratic values and if it can be applied differently, especially in coverage of Israel and the Middle East.

Katz has been with The Jerusalem Post since 2003. He is the co-author of Israel vs. Iran: The Shadow War which was published in Israel in 2011 and will be released in the United States later this month.
