Open to scholars (including graduate students) and practitioners.
Waters, flowing, falling or contained as rain, river, tides, and wells, have long shaped connections and disconnections across Asia. As they continue to make and remake lives in a world of climate change and economic development, the InterAsia Water(s) Graduate Conference brings together qualitative and humanistic approaches to the study of water in Asia. The conference will be held May 28-29, 2021.
Drawing on, but going beyond, policy-oriented debates on water scarcity and security, this conference aims to bring together rich emerging scholarship on water and waterscapes from different perspectives: biophysical, cultural, historical, and political. The conference will draw attention to how past and present waters are created and experienced — and future waters imagined and constructed — in and across Asian and interAsian regions.
