Mosaic invites submissions for a special issue on the Decolonizing of Water. While multiple factors continue to contribute to the current global water crisis—among them population growth, pollution, desertification, dams, reservoirs, and increasing demand—this issue will focus on the concept of water itself, what meaning cultures, and not the least Indigenous cultures, have given to water in their historical literatures and practices, and how a rethinking or reimagining of water might contribute to alleviating the current status of fresh water as an increasingly scarce and inequitably distributed resource. Mosaic is particularly interested in ways of responding to the water crisis that are not rooted in a modern Western and colonialist discourse of privatization, for instance, in a discourse of “rights” that is itself based on the conceptualization of rights as the private and adversarial possessions of rational, traditionally male, subjects.
Submissions must be received by: Jun 19, 2017.
