While the pandemic has disrupted global connections, it is at the same time a local experience. Cities across the globe face similar challenges, such as stresses to transit networks and impacts on efforts to combat climate change. Others face particular pressures, including the distinct ways the pandemic has presented challenges to the infrastructure and economy of New Jersey and the broader region. This session will address the global, regional, and local impacts of the pandemic, and the challenges it presents to cities, suburbs, and rural areas.

The Fall 2020 Princeton-Mellon Research Forum on the Urban Environment seeks to identify problems, present recent insights, and identify spaces of conflict and negotiation in the (post) pandemic city.

The Forum is organized by Dietmar Offenhuber, Princeton-Mellon Fellow, and Anu Ramaswami, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and Princeton Environmental Institute; and Director, Chadha Center for Global India.

The Mellon Forum is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the M.S.Chadha Center for Global India, the Humanities Council, Center for Collaborative History, Department of Art + Archaeology, Department of English, and the School of Architecture. Mellon Forum events are free and open to the public.
