Jesse Callahan Bryant is an M.E.M. '19 and Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at the Yale School of the Environment. Broadly, his work is focused on the ways in which different communities narrate and make sense of environmental problems. His current work looks at the ways in which far-right extremist communities use the idea of climate change to justify violence. After receiving his B.A. in Neuroscience from Boston University, Jesse moved to Wyoming where he spent the better half of a decade working between education and politics. He was a Field Instructor for the Teton Science Schools and Senior Field Instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) where he still teaches when he finds time. Between teaching contracts, he developed a radio show on natural resource conflict for the Wyoming Humanities Council, consulted with the US Forest Service on various land management conflicts, and served as the Policy Director for Lynnette Grey Bull's historical Congressional campaign—the first native person in the State's history in a federal general election. Since at Yale, Jesse has served as the Executive Director of the Environmental Film Festival at Yale, an Editor for the Yale Environment Review, and partnered on several environmental justice projects with the Office of Senator Cory Booker, We Act for Environmental Justice, and the Center for American Progress.
