Abstract

This volume represents the third publication in the series devoted to the theme "Figures in space, politics and society", promoted by a specific interdisciplinary study group, and is the result of the study day held in Florence in December 2003. The objective here is to set up comparisons with the suggestions thrown up by historical and literary evidence pertinent to the numerous modes of imagining space with reference to the political and social spheres. A series of extracts from sources collateral to the classical political panorama highlights the fertility of the line of research and the efficacy of the interdisciplinary approach adopted.

Abstract

After the books on "La politica e gli spazi politici", "Metafore dello spazio", "Gli spazi immaginati", "Spazi e politica nella modernità tecnologica", this notebook continues the series devoted to illustrating the results of an interdisciplinary study group fostered by Lea Campos Boralevi, Vittore Collina and Bruna Consarelli, lecturers in the history of political theory, entitled "Figure dello spazio, politica e società", and aimed at exploring major political and social issues from the aspect of spaces and their production. Devoted to "Viaggio e politica" it seeks to probe the complex manner in which ideas, theories and models have been shaped over the history of political thought in relation to the journey in its spatial and physical, but also symbolic and imaginary, dimension. It is conceived as a moment of encounter and even clash with reality, problems, 'other' mentalities, and with formation, knowledge and transformation. Appendix: Tavole di Zwinger riprodotte nell'intervento di Lucia Felici, "La Methodus Apodemica di Theodor Zwinger: un osservatorio cinquecentesco della città come spazio politico".

Abstract

Water acquisition, storage, allocation and distribution are intensely contested in our society, whether, for instance, such issues pertain to a conflict between upstream and downstream farmers located on a small stream or to a large dam located on the border of two nations. Water conflicts are mostly studied as disputes around access to water resources or the formulation of water laws and governance rules. However, explicitly or not, water conflicts nearly always also involve disputes among different philosophical views. The contributions to this edited volume have looked at the politics of contested knowledge as manifested in the conceptualisation, design, development, implementation and governance of large dams and mega-hydraulic infrastructure projects in various parts of the world. The special issue has explored the following core questions: Which philosophies and claims on mega-hydraulic projects are encountered, and how are they shaped, validated, negotiated and contested in concrete contexts? Whose knowledge counts and whose knowledge is downplayed in water development conflict situations, and how have different epistemic communities and cultural-political identities shaped practices of design, planning and construction of dams and mega-hydraulic projects? The contributions have also scrutinised how these epistemic communities interactively shape norms, rules, beliefs and values about water problems and solutions, including notions of justice, citizenship and progress that are subsequently to become embedded in material artefacts.
