Call for Papers for Volume IV, 2014

THEME

“Interdisciplinary Approaches to Water”

We are inviting articles and book reviews on “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Water” for the Vol. IV of the journal. We have selected the area in order to explore many forms of complex issues—geological, historical, philosophical, commercial/economic, anthropological, ethical, metaphysical, religious, artistic, biological, medical, sociological, psychological etc. associated with water. In spite of large body of literature on the area, we feel that the area still merits attention and discussion in the face of the loss of memory of the importance of water (when water is just a commoditified thing), corporatization of natural resources, pollution of water engineered through industrial economy, exploitation of underground water reserve for agriculture, apathy towards preserving and utilizing rain-water, unnatural activities on the river systems like dams etc and many more.  In other words, we want to approach the area from holistic multidisciplinary manner and so we invite papers from any discipline and we encourage authors to engage themselves in interdisciplinary discussions.

Topics:

  • Birth of life from water: evolutionary perspectives on creation of life on earth.
  • Prehistoric water-bodies and migration and settlement of animal and human beings in different parts
  • Rise and decline of ancient civilizations on the bank of rivers.
  • Water-bodies for irrigation, transport, security and food.
  • Extreme places: polar regions, deserts etc.
  • Water and rituals: anthropological perspectives on water and culture.
  • Water and human psychology
  • Rain, water, water-bodies as symbols in human culture
  • Treatment of water and water-bodies in literature and arts
  • Water in folk culture
  • Aesthetics of the world under water
  • Performative aspects of water
  • Pollution, water industry and the future of drinking.
  • Water, water-bodies and rural management
  • Urban planning and water management.
  • Climate change, environmental disaster and its impact on the water systems
  • Alternative engineering: indigenous water management systems based on long-time experience
