Rivers of the Anthropocene

Rivers of the Anthropocene is an interdisciplinary research conference examining global river systems during the age of the Anthropocene. The conference will focus specifically on the Ohio River and Tyne River systems.

Approaching rivers and their landscapes not simply as natural phenomena but as human artifacts, a group of international researchers, policy advisors, and community organizers will provide a rich comparative study of the interactions between humans and their river environments. By mapping the ecological, geographical, cultural, social, political, and scientific histories of river systems, this conference will provide insight on current issues of relevance to public policy, environmental conservation, and heritage management.

Free tickets available soon. For more information, please visit the research project and conference website.
