Water quenches thirst, sustains crops, generates power, cools industry, conveys ships, carries waste, and maintains ecosystems. This webinar examines the political, social, and cultural dimensions of each of these facets of water resources management. We’ll explore the political dynamics of water distribution, access, and use. We also investigate questions of urban water management, river restoration, water-related hazards, shared transboundary waters, and the threat of water wars.
Presenter: Dr. Jessica Barnes is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and the School of Earth, Ocean, and Environment at the University of South Carolina. She is the author of Cultivating the Nile: The Everyday Politics of Water in Egypt, also published by Duke University Press, and co-editor of Climate Cultures: Anthropological Perspectives on Climate Change.
