Chris Perkins and myself are giving a talk at a conference in Liverpool in a couple of weeks. This presentation will be some of the initial research we have done on the envisioning of the hydraulic city that is coming out of our ongoing 'Mapping Manchester' project.

Our paper is entitled "Maps, Memories and Manchester: The Cartographic Imagination of the Hidden Networks of the Hydraulic City". The paper analyses how various aspects of water supply and management have been made possible through maps and plans. Its a work in progress and we'd welcome comments. Hopefully, we will also get some useful feedback when we read the paper at Mapping, Memory and the City: An International Interdisciplinary Conference, being held at the University of Liverpool, 25-26th February 2010. The conference is organised by the 'City in Film' project at Liverpool University.
