This one-day conference will present and discuss the preliminary results of ‘Water in Istanbul: Rising to the Challenge?’, a two-year project funded by the British Academy’s Knowledge Frontiers: International Interdisciplinary Research Scheme.
The conference draws on the results of a series of participatory workshops with water management professionals in Istanbul, as well as archaeological and engineering investigation into past water usage and management. It will also incorporate sessions on the Byzantine water infrastructure of Istanbul, as well as water management in other urban and rural areas of Turkey.
The conference – which will feature simultaneous translation in English and Turkish – will take place in person at Istanbul Technical University and online via Zoom. More information, including the schedule and full list of speakers, will be available here as it is confirmed.
