W E L C O M E
My name is Dr. Meg du Bray, and I am a sociocultural anthropologist in the Environmental Studies program at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL. I received my Ph.D. in anthropology from the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University in 2017. Prior to joining the faculty at Augustana, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Idaho State University with the EPSCoR Managing Idaho's Landscape for Ecosystem Services (MILES) project.
While my teaching and research focus on environmental anthropology and political ecology, I am broadly trained in social science research methods, including qualitative data analysis. My teaching incorporates these methods to ensure that undergraduate students are well-equipped to conduct research and apply these skills in a range of settings.
I teach Introduction to Environmental Studies, First Year Inquiry, and other courses at Augustana College, and work with my colleagues and students on a range of environmental issues affecting the Quad Cities.
Currently residing in the ancestral homelands of the Sauk, Fox, and Miami nations.
