As Senior Editor, Anja guides the development of Humans and Nature Press Digital as well as co-edits submissions to this publication. She spearheads the Questions For a Resilient Future’s Cosmos series—a series focused on reimagining our inter-connections with off-Earth environments. As Land Liaison, Anja inter-connects stories rising from the land at the Center’s new Libertyville home with the Humans And Nature Press Digital publication.
Anja also writes and searches out stories that help us reimagine our relationship to each other and to planet Earth as a whole. These stories range from deeper philosophical concepts, to reflections of wider-ranging historical perspectives, to the personal story within local places.
The central exploration in all of Anja’s work is grounded in re-imagining our relationship with the other-than-human, by unmasking modes of thought that uphold our cultural detachment from our natural history; and by helping to create new stories, which bridge this perceived gap between humans and the whole community of life.
Anja received her Master of Arts degree in Geography and Environmental Studies from Northeastern Illinois University and her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.
