Conference

January 23-24, 2014, Klipsch Theater, IUPUI Campus Center, IUPUI, Indianapolis, IN

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.
