Catherine Bryan is an anthropologist and assistant professor at Dalhousie University's School of Social Work. Her work focuses primarily on social reproduction, migration, and livelihoods through the lens of feminist political economy. More precisely, she draws on qualitative and ethnographic methods to explore the historic, transnational, and relational origins of migration pathways connecting precarious labour markets in rural Canada to the Philippines, Mexico, and Jamaica. She has published on transnational mothering, hospitality as commodified care, and histories of Filipino care labour migration. Catherine teaches in the areas of social policy, social theory, and research.
