Susannah Gent is a filmmaker, artist, and Senior Lecturer in Film Production at Sheffield Hallam University. Her films that have gained awards at international film festivals over the past twenty years explore experimental narrative approaches to representing subjectivity. She is currently undertaking an interdisciplinary, practice-led Ph.D. researching the uncanny and hauntology through film, philosophy, and neuroscience.
Susannah’s practice-based research with the Walking Arts Research Group comprises of short films made as spontaneous responses to the act of walking. Susannah’s wider research interests include the intuitive nature of the creative process and the embodied experience.
