Water Rights and their Local Impact
Summitt grew up near the Tennessee River and has always felt a strong connection to water. She researched U.S.-Middle East relations during the Kennedy administration for her PhD dissertation and examined the conflict over dividing the waters of the Jordan River in Palestine. Later, after moving to a position at Arizona State University, Summitt shifted her research focus to water in the American southwest, where she studied the environmental history of the Colorado River and American Indian history of the West in connection to water and environment.
