Bożena Shallcross, Associate Professor of Polish Literature, works in the area of 20th century Polish literature and the visual arts, with a particular focus on the verbal-visual interrelationship and the relation of theories of visuality to questions of identity, especially those manifest in diverse modes of habitation and material culture. Among her recent books is The Holocaust Object in Polish and Polish Jewish Culture (2010); her current research project engages both the Holocaust and queer discourses. Her teaching interests include the culture and representation of Polish Jews, the Holocaust, theories of vision, and the pictorial and literary representation of objects.
