Sian Sullivan

Personal statement

Sian is Professor of Environment and Culture in the School of Humanities, and a member of the Steering Group for the Research Centre for Environmental Humanities.

She has recently been the Principal Investigator for two major cross-disciplinary research grants funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Future Pasts (2013-2019) examines how ideas and assumptions about the past – particularly about past relationships between people and the natural world – shape the futures being created now in pursuit of ‘sustainability’. Disrupted Histories, Recovered Pasts (2016-2019) is a joint UK-France research project documenting historical experiences of disruption and recovery in a range of post-conflict and post-colonial contexts.

Sian is an environmental anthropologist, cultural geographer and political ecologist concerned to better understand diversity in cultural understandings and representations of the natural world, amidst contemporary concern over climate change and species decline. She is particularly interested in intersections and frictions between cultural, natural history and economic values as these pertain to beyond-human natures. She has explored these issues in the volumes Political Ecology: Science, Myth and Power (2000), Contributions to Law, Philosophy and Ecology: Exploring Re-Embodiments (2016) and Valuing Development, Environment and Conservation: Creating Values that Matter (2018) - published by the Leverhulme Centre for the Study of Value, for which she was a Co-Investigator (2012-2017).

Sian has carried out ethnographic and oral history field research with indigenous peoples (Damara / ≠Nūkhoen and ||Ubun) in west Namibia for 25 years, contributing expert testimony to a recent national review of indigenous and marginalised communities for the Namibian government’s Ancestral Land Commission, appointed in 2019. An emphasis of her work is to deploy creative methods to convey scholarly research, so as to reach both new understandings and new audiences. She curated the exhibition Future Pasts: Landscape, Memory and Music in West Namibia in galleries in Bath (UK, 2017) and Swakopmund (Namibia, 2019). In conjunction with local research collaborators in Namibia she is developing new work with Somerset-based composer Toby Marks (Banco de Gaia) that reinterprets and reinvigorates archive and research recordings of Khoe-musics.

Sian is currently serving as a member of the Unit of Assessment Advisory Group for UoA 14 (Geography and Environmental Studies) in preparation for Bath Spa University’s submission to the national Research Excellence Framework 2021.

Teaching and supervision

I am part of the core teaching and supervisory team for the MA Environmental Humanities and also teach sessions for the MA History (‘Making of Modern Worlds’) and the MSc Environmental Management (‘Ecosystem Management’, School of Science). I am currently developing a Level 7 module on ‘Cultural Landscapes’ to be offered as an elective for these three masters programmes. I am also teaching on the Level 6 open module ‘Plants and People’ (School of Science).

I have recently supervised three PhDs to completion and welcome PhD applications engaging with intersections between culture, nature and value(s), particularly in colonial and postcolonial contexts.
