As water and waterways connect distant human populations, so too does water provide a thematic link between disparate scholarly disciplines. To better understand the water-related challenges facing states and populations and to promote interdisciplinary collaboration within the university, the Elliott School of International Affairs will host an interdisciplinary conference on Water: Problems and Possibilities on March 22, 2019.
The goals of the conference are to discuss past, present, and/or future research projects and to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration within the university. The Elliott School invites proposals from George Washington University faculty for presentations that deal with the subject of water, broadly defined. We seek conference participants from a wide range of disciplines, including but not limited to: biology, engineering, gender studies, medicine, geography, business, law, history, political science, public health, and security studies. We ask that GW faculty interested in participating in the conference please submit presentation proposals on or before February 11, 2019. For more information, please see the full call for proposals.
