2019 Water History Conference in Florianópolis, Brazil

The Water History conference of the International Water History Association (IWHA) in Florianópolis, Brazil, July 2019 will once again provide a platform to exchange and develop insights about the history of our most precious resource.

Our IWHA conference will feature in the 3rd World Congress of Environmental History, co-organized by the Universidade Federal De Santa Catarina and the International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations (ICEHO), of which the IWHA is a proud member. Joining forces with the World Congress offers the opportunity for water historians to share their research with scholars working on environmental history more broadly, and to find new and productive intersections for further work.

The theme of the World Congress is Convergences: The Global South and the Global North in the Era of Great Acceleration, and we encourage past, present and potential IWHA members to submit proposals for panels or individual papers that speak to this theme in a variety of ways. In order to ensure a strong and visible IWHA presence at the World Congress, we invite members to submit their proposals to the IWHA by Tuesday July 31, 2018.

The 2019 Water History conference will be held from Monday July 22 to Friday July 26, 2019, in conjunction with the World Congress.

For more information about the Water History Conference, please contact the IWHA Executive.

*Please note that the Program Committee for the World Congress will determine which proposals are accepted, not the IWHA.
