Anne-Sophie Balzer is a scholar, poet and journalist. 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 actual ice sheets in Norway she aims to turn her long-year fascination with icy landscapes into a research project. Writing with Glaciers, her PhD project, is an inquiry into glacial poetics written under what we call the Anthropocene.
