Center faculty are involved with various research projects concerning the Chesapeake Bay, concentrating on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Some of this research began as an investigation into the anthropology of Pfiesteria, which resulted in extensive fish kills in the Bay.  Research then expanded to focus on the differing views of “heritage” held by the various stakeholder groups affected the environmental policies that are being developed to address the problem.

 

Recently, Michael Paolisso and his team have focused on the Blue Crab industry and cultural models of natural and cultural resource management, while Erve Chambers has concentrated on heritage tourism issues on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
