Reading the River: Session 1

Andrea Muehlebach

June 16, 2019


Vic Johnston Community Centre (Main Entrance), 335 Church St, Mississauga, ON


Each Reading the River session begins with a walk along Credit River followed by a discussion of a selected text from our SDUK broadsheet series. The first session begins at the Vic Johnston Community Centre, where we will walk along the riverbank through Streetsville Memorial Park, and gather for a reading and discussion with Andrea Muehlebach based on her text “Sister Water” from Issue 02: COMMUTING, and her research on resistance to the privatization of water. All SDUK issues can be found online at


Participants are advised to dress appropriately for outdoor, physical activity. This event will run rain-or-shine. The path along the river has some uneven terrain and slight inclines.


Water and refreshments will be available at the Vic Johnston Community Centre, where there is a gender neutral washroom. Free parking is available at the centre.

Andrea Muehlebach is an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto at Mississauga. An economic and political anthropologist, she explores the ethics and politics of economic life—as notably on questions such as welfare, citizenship, and morality and, more recently, on the political, economic and ethical implications of water privatization and financialization. Her book-in-progress A Vital Politics: Water Insurgencies in Europe is a study of different water movements in Europe and the question of how water—as commons or “resource”—should be governed and valued now and in the future.
