At this meeting, River Commons and Riverhood were officially kicked off! The PhD candidates of both projects introduced themselves, followed by brief key notes on the four central dimensions of the framework that unites both projects. The dimensions shed light on the diverse meanings, spaces, interactions, and appearances of socionatural river systems: River-as-Ecosociety (introduced by Karl Matthias Wantzen); River-as-Territory (introduced by Tom Perrault); River-as-Subject (introduced by Esperanza Martinez); River-as-Movement (introduced by Fabio de Castro). To say it with the words of Arjen Wals: “The combined programs present excellent opportunities for co-learning, co-constructing and ‘co-conspiring’ in counter-hegemonic ways that will open-up new pathways for both research and practice that include the voices and materialities of the river and non-human and the more-than-human world.”
