Sam Schramski visit

Sam SchramskiSam Schramski is a visiting postdoctoral scholar from the Federal University of Amazonas in Manaus, Brazil, housed in the Graduate Program in Amazonian Society and Culture. Sam is working on analyzing and writing up research from his projects on local and community-level climate change adaptation in the rural Amazon, as well as work he conducted in South Africa. His most recent fieldwork was conducted last year, where he worked on a project that focused on perceptions of climate change among riverine populations living in flooded forests. Additional components included a study of agrobiodiversity amongst the rural poor and a study on the exchanges of food and information within these isolated contexts. Closer to home, he is also working with Center faculty, including Deserai Crow, on a project that would combine research on public perceptions and media coverage of climate change with data from legislative interviews. The hope is to make this project comparative between Colorado and the US and Brazil, with the expectation of establishing a database for the results.
