Ongoing research projects

Latin America and the peripheral origins of nineteenth century international order
(Tom Long, PAIS)

An AHRC-funded project led by LAWN member Tom Long with co-investigator Carsten-Andreas Schulz of Cambridge University. Drawing on multinational archival work, the project examines Latin America’s role in the development of international order during the nineteenth century. Latin America often occupied a distinct place in nineteenth-century international society as a group of sovereign states that was accorded lesser status by European powers. However, Latin America’s own vibrant republican institutions spurred vital contributions to international practices, norms, and institutions. Latin America’s engagement shaped international order in lasting ways that should shape our understandings of the ‘crisis’ if international order today. Long and Schulz will examine the roots of these contributions—and the ways international order influenced domestic hierarchies—in research in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and the United States.

The Waterproofing Data project
(Professor João Porto de Albuquerque)

An investigation principally led by LAWN member Professor Porto de Albuquerque, and co-investigated by scholars in Brazil and Germany, maps the governmental and local initiatives taken in the effort to move towards sustainable flood risk governance in Brazil. The project aims to engage intergenerational groups of citizens to produce, circulate, and embed data, which incorporates and builds upon pre-existing flood memories and local knowledge of flood risk, to increase community resilience.

The Water-Health-Resilience project

A project partnership between Warwick's Institute for Global Sustainable Development, and the São Carlos School of Engineering, University of São Paulo. The project aims at investigating the links between water, health and resilience in Brazil and the UK. The main goal is to investigate interdisciplinary methods and innovative approaches for collecting, curating and presenting distinct types of data to improve health, sanitation and resilience of disaster affected communities, with particular focus on flooding.
