The Biography of the Meuse

Christian Ernsten and Nico Randeraad convene on 17 and 18 January 2019 an international expert meeting on the Biography of the Meuse. This project is organized in collaboration with Benoit Mater of the Limburgs Museum and will take place in Venlo and Maastricht.

Climate change, water management, and heritage, these are issues that people around the globe feel passionately about. For the province of Limburg these issues are epitomized by its relation to the Meuse river. In response to the flooding in 1993 and again in 1995, the largest river engineering project in the Netherlands, the Maaswerken, fundamentally transformed the Meuse with regard to water safety, but also in terms of ecology and heritage.

Against this backdrop as well as an increasing scholarly interest in notions of ‘landscape biography’ and the Anthropocene, Ernsten, Mater and Randeraad have organized this meeting in order to bring together researchers, professionals and artists who are dealing with and concerned about water and rivers, in particular the river Meuse.

The program is designed to inspire a dialogue about the Meuse as heritage, ecology and infrastructure. As an outcome of this expert meeting, they intend to make an inventory of relevant research collaborations and funding opportunities.

The program at the Limburgs Museum on Thursday morning 17 January 2018 is open for everybody. E-tickets can be reserved through the LGOG website. [include link: https://lgog.nl/activititeiten/biografie-van-de-maas-een-internationale-expertmeeting]
