ETHOS Lab and Antropologforeningen invite its members to the book launch seminar with Dr. Andrea Ballestero, Rice University (USA) on her recent monograph “A Future History of Water“.
Working with NGOS, politicians, state representatives and activists in Costa Rica and Brazil, Ballestero explores what goes into making water access into a human right. We will explore the techno-legal devices that Ballestro describes in making water futures, and the bifurcations between water as a right, and as a global commodity.
Organized in conjunction with World Water Day, the morning will include discussant commentary, questions to Andrea, and reflections on ways of knowing water.
