24- 26 Sept, 2009: How have rivers been put to work? What technologies have transformed their flow regimes? In what ways do rivers serve as the sanitary systems of cities? Stephane Castonguay will host a conference on the industrialization of rivers supported by the water history project and a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The conference addresses particular cases in North America and Europe and will build a broad comparative perspective. Bringing together invited participants from North America and Europe, the conference will travel to meeting sites and field locations in Montreal, Trois-Rivières and Shawinigan as well as places in-between. Following the conference, Castonaguay and Evenden will edit the proceedings as a book. For further information, please contact Stéphane Castonguay (Stephane.Castonguay@uqtr.ca) or Matthew Evenden (email@example.com).
