Aaron Margolis, Speaker

Teaches history at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Shifting Waters: International Conflict & Cooperation

The Rio Grande, like many waterways that serve as international borders, has been endowed with both symbolic and practical importance. Around the globe these living, shifting boundaries have sparked both conflict and cooperation among rivals. From the Jordan, Indus, and Mekong river basins, to the San Juan River in Central America, water is a key area of diplomacy. The presentation explores the role of water in the modern history of international relations and how they hold the key toward future conflict or cooperation.'
