Seeking panelists for a Roundtable at ASEH 2019 - Teaching Water History

Dear all,

We are developing a roundtable for the upcoming ASEH 2019 conference (Columbus, OH, April 10-14, 2019) that examines the teaching of Water History.  Due to its centrality to life and its dynamic properties, water presents both challenges and opportunities as a subject in the classroom.  We seek fellow panelists to contribute to a discussion of teaching method and pedagogy related to the study of water, with a focus on undergraduate teaching.  Specialists in any part of the world, or any time period, are encouraged to apply.
