Britt Dahlberg


Britt Dahlberg received her PhD in anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015. She has worked as an anthropologist on interdisciplinary and applied health research teams for over ten years, and continues to teach anthropological research methods for public health at Johns Hopkins as Associated Faculty. She is currently Director of the Center for Applied History, a center for publically engaged scholarship, at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, a history of science organization in the United States which houses a research institute, magazine, museum and archives on the history of science. She was one of the designers and grant writers of the reach ambler project, an award winning project which she will talk about today.
In past projects, she has integrated social science methods into research exploring doctor patient communication, and different understandings of mental health in late life, and she has published and spoken to different audiences from this work. In her current research, she has studied how residents, government staff and scientists, and developers each experience and conceptualize the same landscape, its industrial legacy, and it’s meanings for current environmental health and urban redevelopment.
Across projects she has focused on understanding situated knowledges of health experts and lay people, and sought to improve methods for understanding, communications, and collaboration across perspectives. Her research has won awards and grant funding from major institutions in the United States including the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJ), Wenner Gren Foundation, American Philosophical Society, the ACLS/Mellon Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency, among others.
