APS Faculty Published New Article in Water International Journal

Dr Kris Hartley, Assistant Professor at APS, has published a new article in Water International journal entitled “Deconstructing masculinity in water governance.” With co-author Glen Kuecker, Kris discusses how the tools of technocratic and smart water management, which exhibit a command-and-control mentality equitable to masculine conceptions of dominating nature, represent a doubling-down on legacy ways of approaching policy problems. A new discursive frame is needed to recognize the insights of feminist and other critical theories to allow for radical re-conceptualizations of how society interacts with nature. Link:
