C. Anne Claus, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at American University (USA), presented her new book Drawing the Sea Near: Satoumi and Coral Reef Conservation in Okinawa (University of Minnesota Press, 2020) in the Greenhouse environmental humanities book talk series on Monday, 22 March 2021, at 16:00 in Norway / 11:00 US Eastern.

This richly detailed, engagingly written ethnography focuses on Okinawa’s coral reefs to explore an unusually inclusive, experiential, and socially just approach to conservation. C. Anne Claus provides a compelling look at how transnational conservation organizations negotiate institutional expectations for conservation with localized approaches to caring for ocean life.
