Drawing upon data from in-depth interviews with community members and an ethnographic study of three coastal villages that were at different stages of relocation as an adaptation to coastal erosion, Dr. Bertana will provide an analysis of the structural processes that resulted in maladaptive outcomes.

Amanda Bertana, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Southern Connecticut State University. Her primary area of research investigates the human dimensions of global environmental change and its effects (flooding, coastal erosion, more frequent and intense storm surges) on local communities.
