Rivers of the Anthropocene is a transdisciplinary project examining global river systems since 1750. Approaching rivers and their landscapes not simply as natural phenomena but as human-nature entanglements, an international network of researchers, policy makers, artists, teachers, and community organizations seek to create a new framework for understanding and addressing one of the most pressing ecological issues of the 21st century: water security.
The Rivers of the Anthropocene Project kicks off with a conference in Indianapolis on January 23-24. The event will focus on transdisciplinary conceptual and methodological models for discussing the geographical, cultural, social, political, historical, and scientific facets of river ecologies.
Tickets are available at rivers.iupui.edu.
There are no upcoming dates for this event.
