RIVERS Behind the Scenes – Bridges between Asia and Latin America
RIVERS Behind the Scenes – Bridges between Asia and Latin America

On September 20th 2021, many flows of thought joined together as the RIVERS team gathered for their monthly Internal Reading Seminar. This session’s discussion, planned and moderated by Austin Lord and Diego Padilla, was centred around the concept of ‘hydro-extractivism’ and used a diverse set of texts to map out modes of extractivism and water-based conflicts in different comparative contexts. Reading seminars are just one of many ways in which the RIVERS team constructs interdisciplinary dialogues, as we seek to learn together and from each other.
