Journalist & Writer

Anne-Sophie is a journalist, researcher, writer, and admirer of all things wild. She writes essays, poetry and reportings and is a fellow of the international doctorate program (Re)thinking Environment at Augsburg University, Germany. Her work is concerned with art, literature and the natural world, and with questions of social and ecological justice. Growing up on the edge of the Black Forest in Southern Germany she left for the North at the first chance. Having lived both between the “ghosts of glaciers“ in the UK and in close proximity to ice sheets in Norway she aims to turn her long-year fascination with icy landscapes into a research project. Writing with Glaciers, her PhD thesis, is an inquiry into glacial poetics written under the influence of what we call the Anthropocene. Anne-Sophie holds a BA in Comparative Literature from the University of Erfurt and a MA in Cultural Theory and History from Humboldt University of Berlin.

Anne-Sophie’s work as a freelance journalist appears in German newspapers and magazines such as DIE ZEIT and ZEIT ONLINE, ZEIT CAMPUS, Berliner Zeitung and Mare Magazin. She is an occasional contributor to the national public radio DLF Kultur. Her poetry appears in tiny American and British literary magazines that no one knows, like Amberflora and Human-Plant-Quarterly.
