In this talk, Emily Roche examines the relationship between architecture, architects, and the state in interwar Poland. She focuses specifically on the relationship between the modernist idea and the concept of the nation state, modernism's contribution to national modernization, biographical studies of Polish architects, and the role of anti-Semitism in shaping interwar architecture. 

 

Emily Julia Roche is a PhD candidate at Brown University. Her dissertation research focuses on the impact of WWII and the Holocaust on Polish architecture, and her research interests include architectural history, Jewish history, and the relationship between aesthetics, place, and trauma. She is a Spring 2021 Virtual Open Research Laboratory Associate.
