Julia Velten, M.A.wiss. Mitarbeiterin, Abteilung Banerjee
I am currently working as Prof. Banerjee’s doctoral researcher within the DFG research group “Un/doing Differences: Praktiken der Humandifferenzierung.” Our project, focusing on centenarian auto/biographies, deals with the fabrication of centenarians in the United States. Connected to this research, my dissertation deals with concepts of aging in American literature and culture. My general research interests include life writing, aging studies, medical humanities, indigenous studies, and popular culture.
