Bri Watson

I am a PhD. student at University of British Columbia’s iSchool, the Archivist-Historian for the Haslam Collection on Polyamory part of the American Psychological Association’s Division 44 Committee on Consensual Nonmonogamy. I also run the history of sexuality project HistSex.org and contribute to theHomosaurus, an international linked data vocabulary for queer terminology.

In the past, I’ve worked at the Kinsey Institute Library & Special Collections where I revised Sexual Nomenclature, A Thesaurus, and as a research/project assistant with Dr. Marika Cifor and Dr. Robert D. Montoya on a project called Classifying, Documenting, and Preserving Human Sexuality at the Kinsey Institute. For a time, I was also the host of The AskHistorians Podcast.

I am currently especially interested in equitable cataloging in GLAMS (Galleries, Archives, Libraries, Museums, & Special Collections), linked data vocabularies, histories of sexuality, knowledge organization, and archival studies.
