Year of Graduation:
Juliana first brushed shoulders with anthropology during her undergraduate studies at Northeastern University. She studied theater production and writing, and discovered ethnography via a project with animal communicators. After following her generalist heart through a maze of diverse jobs/adventures (lighting designer, dude ranch baker, Off-Broadway production manager, citizen scientist, high-altitude mountaineer), Juliana craved another lens on the world. During the MA at NSSR, she focused her research on seed saving, PFAS pollution, oral history, and speculative design. She’s now turning her attention to food systems and sovereignty, soil science, and the open source ethos. Her dream is to bring the creative collaboration of theater and the co-authority of oral history to projects that are at least faintly ethnographic.
