Central Asia WG • Pipe Dreams: Water and Empire in Central Asia’s Aral Sea Basin
November 11, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Peterson received her Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2011, with a dissertation entitled Technologies of Rule: Empire, Water, and the Modernization of Central Asia, 1867-1941. Peterson’s research stands at the intersection of environmental history and imperial history. She explores the inner workings of empires and how they function by focusing on how the physical environment of an empire might open up new avenues for thinking about modernity and colonial relationships.
