Salome Rodeck

Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Apr 2019-Dez 2024)

Salome Rodeck studied cultural and literary studies at Leuphana University Lüneburg and the University of Amsterdam. She has worked on the ontological and epistemological implications of living and working with non-human others and the figure of the posthuman. In April 2019, she joined the MPIWG as a visiting predoctoral fellow. Her PhD project focuses on the emerging interest in symbiosis as a fundamental principle of life on Earth from both biology and the humanities and social sciences. By examining the theory production and research practices of two key figures in this emerging discourse - Lynn Margulis and Donna Haraway - the project aims to trace the circulation of symbiosis as both a biological and political concept. In doing so, it also aims to contribute to the historicization of transdisciplinary knowledge formations with a focus on the United States after 1968. She has been funded by the Leibniz Centre for Literary and Cultural Research (ZfL) since January 2020. Her project is based at the Institute for Cultural Theory and History at HU Berlin and is supervised by Prof. Dr. Kerstin Palm and Dr. Etienne Benson.
