Assistant Professor Amanda Bertana

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, particularly as it relates to concerns of inequality and justice. Recently, she has studied climate adaptation efforts with an emphasis on structural processes that lead to adaptive and maladaptive outcomes. She has published articles in Environmental Sociology, Environment and Planning C, The Geographical Journal, Anthropological Forum, Rural Connections, Climate and Development, and Case Studies in the Environment.
