Hanna Rodewald is a doctoral researcher in the Graduate Research Group City Scripts at the University Alliance Ruhr. Looking into narratives of the Creative Class in postindustrial cities from a transatlantic perspective, she combines three of her major fields of interest, art and cultural studies, urban imaginaries and American studies.

Hanna studied English and American Studies, Fine Arts and Educational Science at TU Dortmund University and spent a year abroad as a German Teaching Assistant at the University of Iowa. In 2018, she completed her studies with her thesis on “Urban Complexity: The Representation of Harlem in Ann Petry’s The Street”. She has worked as a research assistant for both fields, American Studies and Studio Arts, and has taught a class on the cultural history of American painting through a transnational perspective. In 2018 she joined the artist collective Salon Atelier based in Dortmund.
