Water cultures: discovering the meaning of water through film
Venue: Royal Anthropological Institute, 50 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 5BT
Tuesday 16 - Thursday 18 March 18.30 - 20.30
Three evening film screenings will resume important discussions raised in the Royal Anthropological Institute's main ESRC event: 'The Meaning of Water'. The film screenings will give participants an opportunity to explore how traditional ways of life are threatened due to the loss of water resources, and how in turn, traditional knowledge might contribute towards future water security. A few of the films place particular emphasis on the effects of dams and look at issues around displacement, migration and water resource management.
