Salome Rodeck studied cultural and literary studies at the Leuphana University Lüneburg and the University of Amsterdam. In April 2019 she joined the Anthropocene Formation working group as a visiting predoctoral fellow with the support of an Early Career Fund by CLUE+ from the Vrije University Amsterdam. Her PhD project takes as its starting point the emerging interest in symbiosis as a fundamental principle of life on Earth, both in biology and the social sciences. By tracing the interdisciplinary theory production and cooperative science practices of two of its important popularizers—Lynn Margulis and Donna Haraway—, the project aims at deepening an understanding of the origin and situatedness of this discourse and its cultural imaginary. Since January 2020 she has been funded by the Leibniz-Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung Berlin. Her project is located at the Institute for European Ethnology at the HU Berlin under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Tahani Nadim and Prof. Dr. Etienne Benson (U Penn).
