"Open Rivers: Rethinking the Mississippi is an interdisciplinary online journal that recognizes the Mississippi River as a space for timely and critical conversations about people, community, water, and place. The project's title, Open Rivers, speaks to its multi-vocal and multi-media nature ("open"), its attention to systems and components, stories and frameworks that make up the Mississippi River ("river" understood as a natural and human/cultural system), and to the genre of the work itself, a digital journal. Because of the inherent nature of rivers to disregard state and international borders, the title of our journal refers to more than just the Mississippi. We welcome contributions and conversations relating to other rivers around the world, as well"--About Open Rivers page.
