Thinking with Water

We've got water on the brain

-- but this is not necessarily a condition of hydrocephalus. We've been thinking about rivers and glaciers and oceans, upstream and downstream, water wars and water pacts, hydrological cycles and city infrastructures, water politics, communications and philosophy. Water is the matrix of life and thought, the ultimate solvent, seeping into and across conventional classifications of knowing. It is at once rarefied and everyday, sanctified and instrumentalized. A pervasive relational medium, water communicates across temporal, spatial and disciplinary divides, and plays a central role in corporeal, ecological and imaginative domains... more about this project.

Thinking With Water is now available through McGill-Queen's University Press (October 2013) and other book distributors.
