University Youth Experiences and Leadership: Naming and Addressing Layers of Disaster-Amplified Gaps in Social Support Structures of the United States Virgin Islands


environmental justice



In Part 2 of this panel, we continue to explore the health impacts of ongoing, repeating, and intersecting disasters, particularly in Mexico and the Caribbean. Here we address: potential implications for maternal and infant health following the 2017 earthquake in Mexico; disaster-amplified impacts on education and healthcare in the U.S. Virgin Islands; the intersections of ethics and disaster recovery in Puerto Rico; water insecurity and psychosocial stress in Mexico; trasnational and transborder impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Dominican Republic; and the prevalence of physical and mental health issues after oil spills on populations across the Gulf of Mexico. Here we ask: how does lack of access to healthcare impact community well-being, mental health, and the possibilities for disaster recovery? How do anthropologists engage in ethnographic approaches that center ethical considerations for their interlocutors? And, what are the politics and possibilities of survival at the intersection of environmental and global crises?
