Rowan Glass is an American anthropologist, journalist, and filmmaker. Rowan grew up in Oregon but has spent much of his life exploring other cultures and corners of the world. His research has taken 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. Rowan strives to tell engaging stories about underreported people and places through collaborative, incisive research and creative endeavors.
