Juliann Knaus


Juliann Knaus is currently a PhD student at the University of Graz. Her research interests are rooted in the fields of Intermediality, African American Studies, and Mixed Race Studies. More specifically, her work examines intersectionality and the representation of mixed-race peoples in literature, particularly poetry, from the 1800s until today, with specific focus on the antebellum period, the Harlem Renaissance, and the 1990s to present. Her master’s thesis was entitled: “Mixed-Race and Boundaryless: Ekphrastic  Representation in Natasha Trethewey’s Thrall”. It looked at Natasha Trethewey’s Thrall and the importance of ekphrasis, etymology, and colonialism with regard to the representation of mixed-race people in art and poetry.
