Brianna Meyer

Graduate Student


Bri Meyer is in her fourth year as a PhD student at UW-Madison, working on multispecies ethnography with the American Saddlebred show horse community. Her specific research interests in this area include the creation and cultivation of caring bonds across species that are collaborative, embodied, and gendered. She is also invested in the accessibility of anthropology and ethnographic writing, and the “genre” of ethnography.

Bri holds a BA in anthropology and English literature from Augustana College and is affiliated with the Center for Culture, History, and the Environment (CHE) at UW Madison.
