Middlebury College, Vermont, USA

New deadline for submissions: 30 November 2012

Papers in this interdisciplinary conference will focus on different processes contributing to water scarcity, such as land use decisions, privatization, pricing, damming, commoditization and climate´change, and on ways to improve peoples’ relationships to the freshwater systems they depend on. In addition, the organizers hope to have one session on themes of water in the humanities (philosophy, religion and literature).
