Author Biography

Nicole F. Scalissi, History of Art and Architecture, University of Pittsburgh

Nicole F. Scalissi’s research focuses on American artists who stage violence against gendered, racialized, and classed bodies—marginalized identities with which the artists themselves identify—as a method of both community-identification and self-empowerment to call attention to the prevalence of disproportionate violence committed against women and people of color in the US more broadly. She is a PhD candidate in the History of Art and Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh and carries a master’s degree from Pennsylvania State University.
