Doha, February 20 (QNA) - The International Conference on 'Waterways: Epistemologies and Aesthetics' wrapped up on Tuesday.

The event was organized in collaboration with Qatar Museums and Rubaiyat Qatar: Qatar's first visual arts festival, the School of Social Sciences and Humanities at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI).

During its sessions, the conference laid out alternative critical approaches and new critical perspectives on water topic, with the final day of the convention witnessing four sessions, the first session focused on Palestine water during which the PhD candidate in Social Sciences at Birzeit University Yasmeen Qadan presented a research paper that touched on the mined water and tracing life in a colonized Palestinian village in the time of the Anthropocene.

Meanwhile, the researcher and academic Dr Mansour Nsasra discussed a topic on the network of relations between Beersheba and the cities and villages of the Palestinian coast, with the second session discussing the water issue in the Gulf and opened a research paper on sailboats as magical constructs and rewriting the hidden sciences of Indian Ocean history, along with many papers presented by an elite of researchers throughout the conference.

The participants concluded that as soon as water was the subject matter of economic, political, geographic and cultural discussion, it was used in tandem with a combination of art and cinematic projects, emphasizing that ways of envisioning that were previously taken for granted as firm notions are no longer considered limited and firm based on the imagination.
