Juliane, originating from Leipzig, studied English and History at the University of Trier and the University of Essex in Colchester. When finishing her studies, she worked as a research associate in the Research Centre SFB 600 Fremdheit und Armut (Strangers and Poor People) in Trier exploring forms of poverty and strategies of the poor in rural areas of Western Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries. Her PhD thesis concerned the persecution of itinerant tradesmen as gypsies in the late Kaiserreich and during the Weimar Republic from an actor- centered perspective.
Juliane can draw back on an extensive background in research management and fundraising in the interdisciplinary setting of the Forschungszentrum Europa in Trier (FZE) and in developing new fundraising projects for the Academy of European Law to attract donors in the private sector.
She is now involved in public outreach activities of the C²DH and coordinating the interdisciplinary team of the Doctoral Training Unit 'Digital History and Hermeneutics'.
