To be considered for EMJNet endorsement, a full copy of all of the materials needed for the AAS proposal submission should be sent to:

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.

Programme and registration available for 'Ripples, Leaks and Flows in Water Histories, 1400-1900' (Newcastle UK, 28th June)

Registration for 'Ripples, Leaks and Flows in Water Histories, 1400-1900' is now open.

The programme features papers on water supply, wetlands, rogue waves, brewing, holy water, drainage, flooding and water management.
