Mellon Forum: “HighWaterLine: New Jersey”

Christina Gerhardt, HMEI’s Barron Visiting Professor in the Environmental Humanities and visiting faculty in the German Department, will discuss her project, “HighWaterLine: New Jersey,” which engages the public in walking and chalking the state’s projected future shoreline to demonstrate how sea-level rise will affect New Jersey. HighWaterLine provides an opportunity to experience the future shoreline first-hand and to consider ways to address sea-level rise impacts, for example, via urban and architectural design. Gerhardt carried out a similar project in Honolulu in January 2020.

Gerhardt will join in discussion with Jerry Zee, assistant professor of anthropology and the High Meadows Environmental Institute.

Register to attend in person (PUID holders only) in Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture, or via Zoom livestream (open to all). The event also will be broadcast on Princeton University – Channel 7 LIVE *.

This event is cosponsored by HMEI and is part of the fall 2021 Mellon Forum on the Urban Environment, which explores the meaning of “return” in the post-pandemic era, as well as issues of remediation for communities, societies and our environment.
