Joining the new Water Cultures Network
7th December 2022
By Australian Research Council project members
As part of an Australian Research Council project on water cultures of the Murray Darling Basin, Geographers (Sue Jackson, Lesley Head) and Environmental Historians (Katie Holmes, Ruth Morgan) have established a Water Cultures Network. The aim of the Network is to connect humanities, social and other sciences, as well as managers working in the MDB or on water and society relations more generally.
We hope the Network will enhance opportunities for socio-cultural research and facilitate interaction and stronger collaborations within and beyond Australia’s water research culture. The intention is to improve understanding of the water cultures of the MDB and promote the value of humanities and social science insights and methods to water policy development and management.
Anyone with a research interest in MDB research (or water and society) is welcome to join the network. Further information about the project, research team and how to join can be found on the website https://www.griffith.edu.au/australian-rivers-institute/water-cultures-network. You can also follow the project on twitter @waterculturemdb.
As a network member you will have access to information on new publications, seminars and conferences, and news relevant to the Murray Darling Basin. You can also send material to the network to promote your research. Please invite any interested colleagues to join the network.
