The social and human city

The Metropolis Project takes advantage of Princeton’s small size and history of cross-disciplinary connections to create opportunities for scholars and students in the engineering and physical sciences to explore connections to their peers in the humanities, social sciences, and arts. Focal themes include inequalities of access to new urban technologies, the economics and policy of the urban technosphere, and science and technology as socio-material phenomena. A key partner on this theme is the Princeton Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism & the Humanities.
