Water history analyzes how humans interact with the hydrological environment. At a time when water privatization, water quality, and river development issues hold considerable importance in Canadian society, there is a need to inform public debate and the decision-making process with recent water history scholarship. In Canada, a diverse group of scholars, principally based in history and geography departments, examine different aspects of water history: from the environmental and social consequences of dam and infrastructure development, to conflicts over international waters, to the social perception of floods.
