Abstract The waterscape is a perspective that has captured the imagination of diverse
scholars interested in the interaction of water and society. This includes the way
water travels in time and space and is shaped by culture and geography. In this
article, we pay particular attention to the study of the waterscape in the political
ecology tradition. Scholars following this tradition have placed strong emphasis
on understanding the role of power and the contested nature of water in diverse
rural, urban, and periurban landscapes. The article provides a brief account of
the main strands of literature and serves the purpose of an introductory overview of the waterscape for beginners. We focus both on major works that have helped define the waterscape as a perspective in political ecology and recent studies on the role of unequal power and gender relationships, informal water practices, and local water flows such as ponds and wastewater.
