Das Institut für Europäische Ethnologie und Kulturwissenschaft der Universität Marburg baut derzeit einen Forschungsschwerpunkt zum Thema Wasser auf. Die Tagung wird dazu einen Auftakt bilden. Sie soll eine Möglichkeit bieten, diejenigen zu vernetzen, die im Feld dieser neuen Aktualität des Themas Wasser kulturwissenschaftlich, künstlerisch und/oder kulturanthropologisch forschen.

Waterworlding. Kulturwissenschaftliche Zugänge zu multiplen Wassern

Die Beiträge diskutieren, wie sich andere Verständnisse von Wasser denken lassen; wie Wasser konsequent nicht nur als naturwissenschaftlich definierte Verbindung von Wasserstoff und Sauerstoff verstanden werden kann, sondern als komplexe Verflechtungen. Im Anschluss an die wegweisenden Arbeiten der Anthropologin Kirsten Hastrup (https://waterworlds.ku.dk/) nehmen wir den Begriff der /Waterworlds/ zum Ausgangspunkt, um vor allem auf die Praktiken ihrer Erzeugung zu schauen. Mit /waterworlding/ wird zugleich die in der Anthropologie geführte Debatte um Multiplizität und verschiedene Ontologien aufgenommen.
