Katherine Rinne: "Water's Flow and the City of Rome"
Using Rome as a case study, this lecture explores social, cultural,
aesthetic, topographic, technological, and political changes that the
construction of water infrastructure engenders in the city as it spurs
urban development. Rome provides a compelling model for increasing our
understanding of how cities function and evolve over time as access to
fresh water increases, diminishes, or disappears.
