Mariah Taylor, Princeton-Mellon Fellow; Allison Carruth, HMEI and American Studies

November 2, 2022 · 12:00 pm1:15 pm · Betts Auditorium and Zoom

Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism & the Humanities

Does urbanism include the non-human world? What can street trees tell us about infrastructure and modernity? This talk will consider Soviet urban and industrial greening projects as a way to think about climate systems, non-Western environmentality, non-Democratic participatory politics, and alternatives to the capitalistic view of the environment as a site of resource extraction.
