Areas of Expertise

20th Century British Literature


Jacqueline Shin specializes in twentieth-century British literature and visual art; her research explores connections between literary texts (by authors such as Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Bowen, and Graham Greene) and works of painting, photography, film, and sculpture.  Her teaching interests range from British modernism to broader considerations of war, genre, media, and ethics.  She is currently working on a book project entitled Picturing Repose: Between the Acts of British Modernism, which uncovers the power and prevalence of a "dream of rest" within the shock-effects of modernity.
