Publisher, editor, astrologer
Jenn Zahrt, PhD, writes about the history, philosophy and epistemology of astrology, with a special focus on the German cultural realm. Her doctoral thesis, titled The Astrological Imaginary in Early Twentieth Century Germany (University of California, Berkeley, 2012), concerns the ways in which astrology shaped philosophy, literature and the arts during the Weimar Republic. A chapter from this thesis appeared in Sky and Symbol (Sophia Centre Press, 2013).
Since 2007, Zahrt has worked as a professional editor—for the interdisciplinary humanities journal, Representations (2007–2010), the literary arts quarterly, The Threepenny Review (2011–2013), and the academic journal, Culture and Cosmos (2010– ). In 2014 she co-founded Rubedo Press (www.rubedo.press); she is the Creative Director of Sophia Centre Press (www.sophiacentrepress.com); and in 2017 she founded Revelore Press (www.revelore.press).
A recognized expert in the field of the cultural history of astrology, Zahrt has taught and lectured domestically and internationally in places such as Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Leipzig), the United Kingdom (Bath, London), Canada (Montréal), and in 2018, India.
Zahrt is currently translating works from German astrologers into English and working on a book titled, Strategies of Legitimacy: Astrological Polemics in Pre-WWII Germany. She currently bases her client practice out of Seattle, WA.
