Journal of Water History

The International Water History Association (IWHA) is proud to have its own journal, Water History.

Water History welcomes articles from such fields and perspectives as environmental history, urban history, the history of technology, archaeology, cultural studies, management studies, engineering, geography, agricultural history, and the sciences. Though we encourage submissions that are relevant to today’s concerns, the journal’s core mission is to study the past, not the present. Articles should primarily relate to the history of water and the way that it has affected both human history and other aspects of the natural world. Excited? Submit online!
