This final panel in the series is dedicated to the pandemic’s impacts on the human geography of the city, as seen from social, economic, racial, architectural, and public health perspectives. Panelists will address the impact of the social effects of epidemiology and public health policy, as well as the diverse methodologies scholars can use to study these questions.

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 High Meadows 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.
