A Change in Focus: What Happens when Trees Speak

Sarah Abbott

Sarah Abbott is associate professor in the Department of Film at the University of Regina, and a Doctor of Social Sciences candidate (ABD) at Royal Roads University. Her interdisciplinary doctoral research explores the sentient relationality of trees through public ethnography, Indigenous research methodologies, philosophies associated with the nonhuman turn, and film. Intertwined areas of her research, films, and writing include issues of being, human and nonhuman rights, ethics, community, Indigenous culture and concerns, the environment and climate crisis, filmmaking, and public ethnography. She has been making films for over 20 years across documentary, fiction, experimental, and dance genres. Sarah is a recipient of a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (2014-2017), the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Award for Arts and Learning (2012), and the City of Regina's Mayor’s Arts and Business Award for Innovation in the Arts (2009).
