Anna S. Antonova joined the Rachel Carson Center as a researcher in residence in 2019 and took up the position of director of environmental humanities development in 2020. From October 2022, she is also co-I and the academic lead for the Bulgarian Black Sea Transition Coastal Laboratory in the three-year Horizon Europe consortium EmpowerUs. She studies social and environmental change in the contemporary European context, particularly in coastal landscapes, and examines the relationship between societal transformations and environmental governance in the EU. Her research is highly interdisciplinary, combining approaches from the environmental humanities, critical policy studies, and political ecology. Anna was previously a Marie Skłodowska-Curie research fellow as part of the ENHANCE network at the University of Leeds, where she wrote her dissertation on the conflicting narratives about environment and society emerging from the Yorkshire North Sea and Bulgarian Black Sea coastlines.
