About Dawn Sanders

Associate Professor

Research
Increasingly, humans are an urban species. This demographic shift has implications for both individual and collective perceptions of "nature". The world can no longer afford our citizens to see 'nothing' when they look at plants, the basis of most life on earth. I am interested in working across the art/science interface and how such ways of working might allow us to create new attentional frames towards individual plants and notions of "plantness". My other main research interests involve a) the literary imagination as an extension of environmental aesth/ethics b) Contemporary affordances of victorian taxidermy in natural history museums.

Current Research:

Beyond Plant Blindness: Seeing the Importance of Plants for a Sustainable World

Herbaria 3.0

Herbaria 3.0 uses the concept of the herbaria to provide historical context for exploring the lives of plants and their shared history with humans. As part of the project, our multi-disciplinary team will create an interactive website, collecting stories that address the question: “Where can a single plant take you?”
