Tatsiana Zhurauliova is an art historian specializing in American art. Her research interests include the intersection of art and spatial politics, twentieth-century geographical imagination and visuality, as well as the role of transnational and intercultural exchanges in American art. Tatsiana received her PhD in art history from Yale University in 2014. She is currently revising for publication her dissertation, Arcadia Americana: Landscape in American Art during World War II, which considers landscape as a representational category central to the experience of the war in the United States. This project positions landscape painting within the period discourse on spatiality in which the notions of proximity and distance collapse under the weight of cartographic and photographic mediation, ushering in a newly dynamic and embodied sense of global space.
