Bryan GrimwoodBryan Grimwood is Assistant Professor in the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies at the University of Waterloo. His research explores human-nature relationships in contexts of leisure/tourism, learning, and livelihoods and is informed by principles of community-based participatory research, qualitative inquiry, and geographical notions of nature, ethics, and mobility. Recent and ongoing projects involve collaborations with Indigenous and tourist communities to document and dialogue culturally diverse knowledges, relationships, and responsibilities associated with a special and changing Canadian Arctic riverscape. As a parent and outdoor educator, Bryan is also interested in the ‘nature stories’ we tell ourselves and live; what these stories tell about our being human and the extent to which they foster resilient children, communities, and ecologies.
