To Register in advance for this Webinar:

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused great disruption to the production, distribution and consumption of food. Food security has taken on renewed importance for people, communities, and governments across the globe. This panel will address who gets included and left out of the ranks of the food secure, the forces and structural inequalities that stand in the way of food security, and the social and physical infrastructures needed in order to improve it. Participants will highlight food practices and policy proposals that provide insight into how we might make more stable and inclusive food systems in the future.

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.
