Project Details

Description

BurnSilver will be subcontracted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks for 2 months of her time in FY12 and 1 month in FY13 on the project entitled The Study of Sharing Networks to Assess the Vulnerabilities of Local Communities to Oil and Gas Development Impacts in Arctic Alaska. In FY12, BurnSilver will work closely with PI Gary Kofinas and with project collaborator J. Magdanz at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to 1) coordinate analysis of social network data and 2) carry out all analysis socio-economic data generated by the Sharing project. BurnSilver will also supervise a graduate research assistant at Arizona State University, whose time is committed fully to data analysis on the Sharing Project (and whose position is covered by BurnSilvers resources). BurnSilver will also co-write the final report (generating results, text and figures) for the project funder (BOEM) over the period November 2011 to March 2012. In early 2012, BurnSilver will collaborate with PI Kofinas to organize dissemination of results to the three project communities scheduled for March of 2012. This subcontract also include funds to cover the cost of BurnSilvers travel to Fairbanks, Wainwright, Venetie and Kaktovik in support of these data dissemination activities. The goal of this effort is to engage local community members and decision-makers with results of data analysis around issues of subsistence, resilience and human well-being that are of great concern locally and regionally. An additional month of BurnSilvers time is budgeted for FY13, during which additional data analysis is scheduled in support of planned publications on the Sharing Project.
