Erika Cremer-Fellowship for Johanna Luggin
On March 28, 2022 Johanna Luggin was granted the Erika-Cremer Fellowship by Innsbruck University.
This fellowship supports female researchers intending to finish their Habilitation within the next three years. Johanna will finalize her monograph on the place of rhetorics in Neo-Latin scientific texts. As part of the award ceremony, vice rector Ulrike Tanzer underlined that this fellowship should be seen as a signal for women in academia. In his laudatio, Martin Korenjak (LBI) presented Johanna Luggin’s academic achievements and also mentioned that she is an important and integral member of our Neo-Latin research team.
One of Austria’s leading newspapers, “Die Presse”, has recently interviewed Johanna on the award of this fellowship, her research, thoughts on working in the field of Neo-Latin especially for young researchers and more. You can find the interview HERE.
