The relationship between water and modernity is not the domain of just one or even a few disciplines: established areas of research in engineering, environmental history, and urban geography, for instance, can be complemented by insights drawn from other fields such as anthropology, architecture, comparative literature, art history, and sociology. To take account of the interdisciplinary scope of water, and its intersections with urban culture, has daunting implications for both writing and research since disparate concepts and methods are necessarily combined with uncertain analytical and expository implications.
