Marine Science and Conservation, Duke University Marine Lab

Sarah Bess Jones is a PhD student in Marine Science and Conservation at the Duke University Marine Laboratory under Dr. Lisa Campbell. Broadly, she is interested in indigenous rights and identity in the context of marine conservation. She draws upon anthropology, critical geography, and political ecology to explore the intersections of identity, conservation, and governance processes in marine management and how these intersections change across scales (global, national, local). Her research utilizes indigenous methodologies to guide video and storytelling practices as activism and to embed people within their seascapes. She received her BA in Anthropology from the University of Georgia, where she studied environmental anthropology.
