Brian Myhre (M.A. Anthropology) is in his final year of Ph.D. dissertation field research in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Manitoba. His research focuses on how leaders of several Winnipeg-based Aboriginal organizations use Internet, SMS text messaging, and social media platforms (e.g., Facebook) to achieve important social-cultural and economic development goals, and to build capacity of Aboriginal people through culturally appropriate education, skills training, and mentoring services.
Myhre is currently teaching within the departments of anthropology at the University of Winnipeg and the University of Manitoba, and provides course instruction at the International College of Manitoba and Seven Oaks School Division’s ‘First Year Now’ program. Courses include: Introductory Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Human Origins & Antiquity, and Culture & the Individual.
