Event Details:

How does water participate in political, social and economic projects and in so doing trans/form them? How is water measured, managed, feared and worried over, and in the process constituted? How does it undermine or shore up profit-maximization, state-building, infrastructure and human rights regimes? How is water valued, by whom and to what ends? And what elisions and distinctions do these valuation regimes stand on? We seek to gather scholars who work on these aspects to generate conversation on the ecology -- in its political, economic and social dimensions - of water in diverse socio-political locations.
