Ph.D. Candidate, Research Training Group DIAPASON, Abteilung Banerjee
I am a PhD candidate with Prof. Dr. Mita Banerjee’s team in the framework of JGU’s high potential research area PLATO (Positive Learning at Risk in the Age of Information) and its research training group “DIAPASON: Digital Information Landscape and its Impact on Students’ Online Learning”.

I received both my B.Ed. and M.Ed. in English and Philosophy from Johannes Gutenberg University and wrote my theses on hermeneutics in the second language acquisition context and the intersections between video games and trauma respectively. Over the course of my studies, I had the opportunity to take part in the Obama Institute’s Direct Exchange Program to Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA, USA, and the ERASMUS teaching program GET Across Borders to Paisley, Scotland, UK. In 2017, I was awarded the Hans Galinsky Memorial Prize for best student term paper on “Judith Sargent Murray’s Conception of Genderless Spirituality in her Essay ‘On the Equality of the Sexes’ (1790) and its Argumentative Consequences for the Religious, Educational and Social Equality of Men and Women and the Female Role in Particular”.

In my research, I primarily focus on interdisciplinary approaches to video game studies, medical humanities and narrative medicine, gender/queer studies, and education studies in both qualitative and quantitative projects.
