Rethinking Responses and Responsibilities in River Regions

Rethinking Responses and Responsibilities in River Regions (RRR): Exploring Love, Loss and Lament from Critical – Creative Empathy Perspectives and Arts-Based Political Practices in Global-Local Contexts

This RRR Social Justice Network focuses on creating global-local connections to foster a transnational and inter-cultural understanding of how indigenous peoples and local settlers whose lives and livelihoods are intimately intertwined with the life of rivers and watershed regions (re)construct their past and (re)imagine the future of their social-ecological systems. We are interested in how they make meaning and sense of place(s) though expressions of love, loss, lost memories, mourning and lament for the past, and hopes for an imagined future.
