Brianna Meyer

Graduate Student


Bri Meyer earned her B.A. in Anthropology and English from Augustana College in 2017. There, she did much work on language and tourism in Ireland. She is currently in her second year as a PhD student at UW-Madison, working on co-species ethnography in the American Saddlebred show horse community—of which she has been a lifelong member. Her specific research interests in this area include multi-species, multi-sensory language, collaborative movement, and embodiment. She is also extremely invested in discussions on the theory of ethnographic writing, and how the “genre” of ethnography relates to and differs from other genres of literature.
