Brooke Bryan is a phenomenologist with an audio recorder. As a digital oral historian immersed in ontological philosophy, she is ever enchanted with the nuances of daily lived experience and revels in the opportunity to sit in the interview space with another. As a faculty member in Antioch College’s Cooperative Education program, she teaches interview methodology, tools for digital scholarship, and helps students secure meaningful fieldwork opportunities.

Brooke holds a graduate degree in Oral History Methodology from Antioch University and studied the Humanities with emphasis in the phenomenology of place. When not exploring Philadelphia or Chicago with students, she can often be found collecting and restoring antique quilts or pondering 'flow' and the history of material culture while stitching new ones in her 1842 homestead.
