Hanna Teichler

Hanna Teichler has studied English, French and Portuguese philology at Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main (focus: anglophone and francophone postcolonial studies, New Literatures in English) and graduated in May 2011 with a Magistra artium degree. After having worked as a research assistant for an interdisciplinary project at University Siegen (History Department), she was accepted as a Ph.D. candidate in Frankfurt in December 2011 (New Literatures in English) under supervision of Prof. Dr. Frank Schulze-Engler and Prof. Dr. Astrid Erll. Her dissertation project examines possibilities of reconciliation in a postcolonial context and focuses in particular on performative aspects of memory, identity and history in a more and more complex media landscape. She has participated in the Mnemonics Conference for young researchers in September 2012 and 2013, and presented at the Gendered Memories of War and Political Violence Conference (Central European University, Budapest) in December 2012 as well as at the ASYRAS conference in Gijón, Spain, in 2013.
