March 16, 2021 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the UNC Art and Art History department and Paul Jaskot for a lecture on March 16 at 5:30 p.m. to learn about the integration of art history into spaces occupied during the Nazi period in Krakow. Register here for this event. 

Paul Jaskot received his doctorate in Art History from Northwestern University. He teaches courses on architectural history, modern architecture and urban planning, and German art with a particular emphasis on National Socialist Germany. His scholarly work focuses on the political history of Nazi art and architecture as well as its postwar cultural impact. He is the author of The Architecture of Oppression: The SS, Forced Labor, and the Nazi Monumental Building Economy (2000) as well as The Nazi Perpetrator: Postwar German Art and the Politics of the Right (2012). 

In addition, for the past decade, he has been a member of the Holocaust Geography Collaborative exploring the use of geographic information system mapping and other digital methods to analyze the spatial history of the Holocaust. Currently, he is continuing his collaborative work in an analysis of the spaces of the Nazi ghettos of Occupied Europe as well as a solo-researched project on the history of the construction industry in Germany, 1914-1945.
