Welcome to the Power and the Water project
The Power and the Water: Connecting Pasts with Futures is an environmental history initiative that focuses on environmental connectivities that have emerged in Britain since industrialisation.
Researchers from several universities have come together to study how our 21st century sense of place, livelihood and community has been moulded by our links to the environmental processes of rivers, constructed watercourses, energy systems and infrastructure. It is through these environmental connectivities that our local actions are linked to planetary systems.
The Power and the Water is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and this site provides a developing record of the project's progress. In addition to project information and reports, the site features blog posts by team members, podcasts and other audio/visual material, including maps.
You can follow the project on Twitter: @envirohistories. Alternatively you can sign up to our email list to receive automatic notifications of new blog posts.
Enquiries about the Power and the Water are always welcome. Please use the contact form or contact individual team members directly via email addresses provided in the people section.
