Rowan Glass is an anthropologist, journalist, and filmmaker who graduated from the University of Oregon in 2023 with a BA in cultural anthropology, history, and Latin American studies. Rowan grew up in Oregon but has spent much of his life exploring other cultures and corners of the world. His undergraduate research took him from the mountains and rainforests of southwest Colombia, where he conducted an ethnography of cultural reproduction and autonomy with the Indigenous Kamëntšá people, to the streets of Dakar, Senegal, where he crafted recommendations for culturally responsive pedagogy with local NGOs. After graduating, Rowan attended the Athens Summer School in Visual Ethnographic Practices to combine his interests in anthropology and filmmaking. He is currently working online while continuing to travel and applying to graduate programs in visual anthropology. Rowan strives to tell engaging stories about underreported people and places through incisive research and creative endeavors.
