Sandra Zalman is assistant professor of Art History at the University of Houston, where she teaches classes on modern and contemporary art. Her book Consuming Surrealism in American Culture has been widely praised.
Thomas Crow, distinguished professor at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, called the book “fluently written and full of riveting details. Zalman, he writes, “has produced the most deeply and imaginatively researched account of the profound ways in which European Surrealism altered not just American art, but the wider culture as well.“
She has received grants from the American Council of Learned Societies, The American Association of University Women, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
