"The Folk Studies program seems like a great environment for me to continue researching, making films, and expanding my knowledge."

Barrett Griffin

Educational Highlights:

Barrett earned his B.A. in Anthropology with concentrations in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnographic Film Making from Western Kentucky University. In 2011, Barrett began fieldwork and filming in Gujarat, India with Dr. Lindsey Powell. They later presented an early version of the film at Harvard University.

Next at WKU:

Barrett is most interested in gender and sexuality, religion, and subsistence methods. He hopes to research the interrelations between these topics. Barrett has additional interests in social psychology and elements of social control, evolution and adaptation, and identity and self-expression through personal style.

On the Inside:

Barrett is originally from Glasgow, Kentucky. He enjoys taking photographs of people, riding his bike, eating new foods, drinking craft beer, and learning about film and cinema. Even with all these activities, Barrett is never too busy to enjoy spending time with his friends, his partner, and his "slightly overweight and completely lovable orange cat, Sam."
