WATER HISTORY CONFERENCE 2017
GRAND RAPIDS, USA
JUNE 15-17, 2017
The Water History conference of the International Water History Association (IWHA) in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, will once again provide a platform to exchange and develop insights about the history of our most precious resource. The conference is co-organized by the IWHA and Western Michigan University: http://www.iwha.net/conference/date-and-location
The program committee welcomes proposals for individual papers and proposals for complete sessions. Session proposals can include three or four papers and a commentator. We encourage the inclusion of chairs in session proposals as well. Proposals for multiple sessions under one theme are also possible. The conference does not predefine topics for abstracts and sessions. Subjects and topics can range from rivers to drops, from seas to mountain lakes, from technologies to cultures, from first settlers to 20th century builders, as long as the subjects are related to water (are “wet”) and historical (are “old”).
All proposal abstracts, both individual and for sessions, will be reviewed by the program committee and should be submitted by the main author of the abstract through the online submission system. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Submissions can be made until November 15, 2016.
In addition, session proposals (consisting of session title, 100 word description, names and affiliations of presenters and titles of their papers, names and affiliations of commentator and chair), should be sent separately to Daniel Macfarlane, chair of the program committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
