Dr. Julia Devlin is a historian with a focus on migration research. She studied the history of Eastern and Southeastern Europe, modern and contemporary history, art history and Slavic studies at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, the School of Slavonic and East European Studies London and the Moskovskij Linguističeskij Universitet Moskau. She began her academic career as a project manager at the Institute for Eastern European Studies in Munich, where she converted the 100,000-strong archive of the historian Erik Amburger into a database, thus making this unique documentation of migration to the Tsarist empire available on the Internet. Several months of research stays in Moscow, St. Petersburg, London and Leeds for her dissertation project on British migration to the Tsarist Empire followed.
Julia Devlin has taught numerous seminars at the LMU Munich in English and German. At the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt she was involved in the Double Degree Master "Conflict, Memory, Peace". She is an author of Deportation and and Exile. A Polish Odyssey in World War II (2014), the first German-language publication on the subject of deportations from eastern Poland. Her current project is located at the interface between memory studies and history and explores the meaning of the family narrative in exile. She also researches the history of displaced persons after the Second World War.
