The winter 2019 issue of Utah Historical Quarterly will focus on a special theme: the edges of the Great Salt Lake, where the water meets the land. We welcome short or long research articles, biographies, primary documents, photographic essays, and archaeological field notes and case studies related to that dynamic border. We are especially interested in wetlands, waterfowl hunting, bird refuges, boats, and development along the lake's edges. We also welcome essays that examine the lake in a larger environmental and cultural context.
Reminder: June 30 deadline is approaching

Our World of Water: Histories of the Hydrosphere
November 4, 2017
Georgetown University, Washington D.C.
I would like to form a panel on underground water resources for the 2018 ASEH meeting in Riverside. Southern California demonstrates the ways in which groundwater has long been - and remains - implicated in questions of power. This panel seeks to explore this intersection of power relations and claims and access to subterranean water resources in a global context.
