CFP: The Waters of Rome

The online journal “The Waters of Rome” are looking for contributions:

THE WATERS OF ROME is published by “Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome” – an interactive cartographic history of the relationship between hydrological and hydraulic systems and their impact on the urban development of Rome, Italy, from 753 BC to the present day. Aquae Urbis Romae examines the intersection between natural hydrological elements including springs, rain, streams, marshes, and the Tiber River, and hydraulic elements including aqueducts, fountains, sewers, bridges, conduits, etc., that together create a single integrated water infrastructure system for Rome.

Scholars are invited to submit articles in English (or Italian with a publishable English translation provided by the author) on any aspect of the hydrological or hydraulic history of Rome, from the prehistoric to the present day. Articles that investigate water and water infrastructure within a social, cultural, technological, or administrative context are particularly welcome. All articles under consideration will be read by the editor and at least two outside reviewers who are experts in Roman topography, archaeology, history of technology, geography, urban or architectural history. Authors shall be responsible for obtaining copyright permissions for all maps and images included with their article, and each author retains copyright for any work published at “Aquae Urbis Romae: the Waters of the City of Rome”.
