River Cities #2: Biographies with Satya Patchineelam

Season 1, Ep. 12

This episode is the second in a four-part mini-series on River Cities as Method (RCM), a new project under the umbrella of Urban Knowledge Network Asia (UKNA) at the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS). The goal of River Cities as Method is to promote ecologically and socially inclusive revitalizations of rivers and the cities/neighborhoods that coexist with them. In this episode, Satya Patchineelam, PhD candidate at Erasmus University and academic advisor for the RCM project, delves deeper into the history and life ways of the Riverine community in Brazil. This research also serves as the pilot project for RCM.

If you are currently researching the relationship between cities and rivers, and you think that your work might fit in well with River Cities as Method, check out RCM's recent Call for Expressions of Interest. The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2022!
