She studied English, French and Portuguese philology at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main (focus: anglophone and francophone literary 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, until May 2012), 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 (both Goethe University, Frankfurt). 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 is member of the Memory Studies Association, GAPS, the Mnemonics Network for young researchers in the field of memory studies, as well as the Frankfurt Memory Studies Platform. Hanna is also a member of the Memory Studies Association Advisory Board. In this context, she organizes conferences and Phd events in Memory Studies. Throughout her dissertation phase, she has participated in several conferences and summer schools. Her research interests encompass memory studies, (trans)cultural studies, film theory, reception of the Bible and postcolonial studies.
