v.3, 2006, Special Issue: Water and Women in Past, Present and Future

This summer we bring you a new volume with 11 articles on the politics and aesthetics of water, edited by Zdenka Kalnicka from Ostrava University. It should be a challenging and provocative read as the articles highlight not only a gendered political economy of water resources and allocations the world over but also philosophical and literary interpretations of the aesthetic dimensions of water and the feminine.
