Fourth Conference International Water History Association
Water and Civilization
Paris, France, 1-4 Dec 2005
CALL FOR PAPERS AND PANELS
The International Water History Association (IWHA) invites panel proposals and individual paper abstracts for IWHA’s fourth biennial conference. The program, which will address diverse topics related to water and history, will bring together scholars and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and different parts of the world.
In the process, IWHA hopes to help advance the theoretical and methodological quality of water history as a research field and to thereby increase understanding of the role of water in history and development. Specifically, the panels and presentations will dovetail with the long-term IWHA/UNESCO project to publish a seven-volume series on "Water and Civilization."
The program is organized around the following main themes and aspects (click on the themes for details):
The Control of Water.
Water and Religion.
Water and Climate.
Water and Conflict.
Water and Health.
River Basins – A Comparative Perspective.
