Abstract:
Water connects and obligates people to one another and to their environments in this time of ecological reckoning. Water ties, in this presentation, is an analytical term for, first, the ways that people are tied to water and are obliged to care for it, and second, the consequential and patterned ways that people are tied to one another through their relationships to water. In the Florida Everglades, where the world’s largest wetlands restoration project is underway and where pitched battles are fought over the values of agricultural production (especially sugarcane) and ecosystem health, water ties are the underappreciated keys to achieving flourishing with contested waters. Water ties are also political methodology: methodology for ecosystem governance, for Seminole sovereignty, and for ethnography.

This is a part of the Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD) Winter 2022 Series - "Water Ways: New Social Science, Science Studies, and Environmental Approaches to Water"
