Russian, E. European & Eurasian Center: Speakers

Jack Hutchens works on the intersection of gender and national identity in Poland, examining writers and texts that challenge heteronormative and ethnically homogeneous conceptions of Polish identity. His dissertation project, for which he won a prestigious ACLS grant, is entitled 'Transgressions: Queer Discourse and National and Gender Identities in Twentieth-Century Polish Fiction.' His current research interests include Modern Polish and Czech Literature, Queer Theory, and Popular Culture.
