Profile

Juliane Scholz received her magister degree in cultural sciences, communication and media studies and psychology from the University of Leipzig in 2009 and her doctoral degree with a thesis on the history of screenwriters in Germany and the USA in 2014. She then continued as a lecturer and senior researcher at the institute for cultural sciences of the University of Leipzig.

Her research focuses on German, East-Central European and US-American social and cultural history of the 20th century, especially from a comparative viewpoint. She specializes in the professionalization of creative and scientific occupations as well as exile and migration of filmmakers and intellectuals.

In the GMPG Research Program she investigates the social history of the Max Planck Society as well as the MPG’s relationship to society, economy and politics. Her project underlines the emergence of professional scientific occupations in specific organizational patterns. It focuses on the social stratum, personnel structures and public relations strategies of the Max Planck Society since 1946/48.
