CfP: The Water Cultures of Europe and the Mediterranean, 1500-1900, Three-Day International Conference, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, 13-15 September 2023

What would a history of society and culture look like with water placed at its core? This three-day international conference aims to shed light on the forms of human interactions with water over time in Europe and the Mediterranean. The intention is to explore the history of different societies, the construction of their identities and forms of self-representation, based on their changing relationships with water: the ways of controlling, using and conceiving it; the religious, symbolic and knowledge dimensions it assumes, and the forms of cultural production it leads to. Human-water interactions offer a unique key to understanding society and culture. By ‘water cultures’, we mean both material aspects (such as hydraulic engineering or water capture techniques) and non-material features (symbolic responses, beliefs and practices, changing knowledge and legal structures). Fruitful comparison can be made across a wide range of different times and places. This is possible for two reasons.
