About

Welcome reader!

I started this site in 2009 as a means of being able to share work of mine online. I have been researching and writing about human relationships with ‘other-than–human’ worlds, and how these are shaped by culture and political economy, for around twenty years. Some of this work is available here.

In writing something for this ‘about’ page, I realised that what I wish to do is acknowledge my teachers. The work here has been guided and inspired by people and experiences to whom I am extremely grateful. I have been privileged to learn from Damara / ≠Nū Khoen people of north-west Namibia since the 1990s, of whom Suro Ganuses and Nathan ≠Ûina Taurob deserve special mention in this regard. Katherine Homewood, Barbara Bender, Paul Richards and Philip Stott, were my teachers in human ecology, cultural landscapes, social ecology and political ecology respectively. My father, Gerard Sullivan, has tutored me in political and economic thought since I can remember. Ya’acov and Susannah Darling Khan of the School of Movement Medicine, and Chris Lüttichau of Northern Drum, have helped me to (re)find my feet and keep them on the ground. And numerous friends, family and comrades have contributed in all sorts of ways along the way (you know who you are…).

And thanks to you too for visiting! Comments and general reality checks are always welcome. I can also be contacted at s.sullivan @ bbk.ac.uk

  1. Dear Sian

    I have now entered your blog to admire the remarkable work, knowledge, experiences, you have developed and now sharing with the wider community.

    TBG is hoping to act as the forum to develop the “transcultural” community . We totally share “THINKING, BEING AND ACTING GLOCALLY”.

    We look forward to invite you to share your insights with us and happy to reciprocate our own evolution with you.

    Kindest Regards
    Carlos

    Hi Sian,
    Thought you might be interested in a conversation that was sparked by your Earth Incorporated paper on the Capital Institute website:
