Julia Heideklang

MA MEd

After her obtaining her master’s degrees (M. Ed. Latin/Biology; M. A. Classical Philology) from the Humboldt University of Berlin, from 2017 to 2021 she was a scientific researcher and doctoral candidate of the DFG graduate school “Literary and Epistemic History of Small Forms”. In her dissertation project she focuses on the paratexts of botanical writings in early modern Europe. In February 2022 she joined the DFG project “Versio Latina” of Prof. Anja Wolkenhauer at Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, where she starts a new research project analyzing twelve cases of translations of early modern literary texts into Latin, their actors, objectives, contexts, and functions.

The fellowship at Ludwig Boltzmann Institute allows her to analyze in more depth the autorial paratextual strategies at work in early modern botanical print works. Using digital tools, she wants to visualize and make visible the various ways of constructing disciplinary history based on an enlarged corpus of works.
