Water Works

I also teach and conduct research on water politics and policy in the American southwest, and California in particular.

I was the lead researcher in organizing and conducting interviews for the Oral History of Water Archive at Fresno State’s Henry Madden Library.  You can link to the archive here and watch the 50 oral history interviews.

I also had the wonderful opportunity to work with the award winning photographer Randi Lynn Beach and award winning poet Yiyun Li on the book Westlands: A Water Story regarding the effects of drought on agriculture, agricultural workers, and small communities in California’s San Joaquin Valley.  There is also a short documentary you can see here.
