For centuries, Mary's Well in the public plaza of Nazareth was a site of pilgrimage, tourism and photography as well as a source of water. Currently there is no water in Mary's Well. What are the visual, oral, environmental, and gendered histories surrounding the presence and absence of water?

This is the first annual distinguished lecture of the Journal of Middle East Women's Studies, the official journal of the Association for Middle East Women's Studies. Co-sponsored by the UCSB Department of History, Center for Middle East Studies, and UCLA's Center for Near East Studies.
