The Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities announced its 2020 summer digital research grants, which will support 31 faculty-student collaborations, 28 independent graduate student projects and 11 independent undergraduate student projects.

Many projects deal directly with the urban experience under COVID-19, including research that examines mobility, migration, and the right to the city during the pandemic, as well as the auditory experience of lockdown and social distancing. Others focus on race, ethnicity and equity in the city; inequality and development in the Global South; Black entrepreneurship and systemic discrimination in America’s urban centers; structural violence in Philadelphia; and poverty and racial segregation. 

The summer grants are made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Metropolis Project of Princeton University, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, the Department of Sociology, the Department of Anthropology and the Princeton Environmental Institute.
