Winthrop's first Interdisciplinary Conference was held on November 7, 2015. The conference focused on the uses,
politics, art, history, and economics of water worldwide. It was open to
faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, activists, and community
professionals. The all-day event consisted of panel discussions, dance performances, a keynote address from the Catawba Riverkeeper, a poster session, and a gallery reception. There were over 120 attendees from Winthrop and from across the country including North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and California.
