How do oceanic studies inform the spatial and temporal connections of local, national, regional, trans-regional and global histories?

The Political Ecology of Water: Human-Water Relationships in a Changing Climate Thursday, March 5, 2015
Stephanie Kane, Professor, IU International Studies, School of Global and International Studies. Cultural anthropologist, ecologist, and author of Where Rivers Meet the Sea: The Political Ecology of Water (Temple University Press, 2012).

The science of climate change introduced dramatic uncertainty into human-water relationships, destabilized established protocols of storm prediction, complicated the design and operation of flood control systems, and should stretch the time frame of environmental impact assessment. Based on her fall 2014 ethnographic research among engineers and geographers in the urbanized wet prairielands of Manitoba, Professor Kane will discuss the possibilities and limits of incorporating “known unknowns” into technical traditions.
