In the summer of 2018, a group of Penn graduate and undergraduate students worked on creating new narratives of their own, tied to water.
For 10 weeks, the fellows, together with faculty members and guest experts, participated in a range of collaborative discussions, independent research, river excursions, and field trips to sites like the Seaport Museum as a means of developing new understandings of urban waters that bridge the arts and sciences. To culminate their summer fellowships, the students developed final projects. The Penn students' sink|float|spill|flow projects received funding through the Provost Office's Center for Undergraduate Research and Funding.
This collection gathers materials created by the group while exploring the nexus of climate change, rising waters, and Philly history.
