Urban infrastructure is a vital topic for interdisciplinary research because it is fundamental to the economic development prospects of regions. The Urban Studies Program in collaboration with the Regional Studies Association (UK), the Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory, and GSPIA’s Center for Metropolitan Studies (CMS) as well as support from the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies, the European Studies Center, and the Global Studies Center will hold an international, inter-disciplinary event entitled Infrastructural Regionalism: Workshop on Water Infrastructure and Regional Governance on Tuesday, May 12th and Wednesday, May 13th, 2020. This workshop will leverage the Regional Studies Association’s Network on Infrastructural Regionalisms (NOIR) to bring global experts together with locally based researchers and practitioners on pressing issues related to regional water governance. The two-day workshop will include site visits, networking opportunities, one public keynote, and paper sessions, and will feature opportunities for engagement with local faculty, graduate students, and the public.
