First Friday Lunch - September 2017

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.

Newark waterOn Friday, September 8th, 2017, we will be joined by Kessie Alexandre.  Kessie is a PhD candidate whose research is concerned with water contamination and environmental exposure resulting from aging and failing infrastructures in the United States. In her fieldwork, she explores how inadequate water systems are locally experienced and follows various efforts to address these water issues through a combination of technoscience, environmentalism, and community engagement in Newark. Broadly, she is interested in what can be gleaned about embodied exposure, social justice work, and political imaginaries of public works and public space from the current state of American water infrastructures and its confluences with social movements. Prior to coming to Princeton, she received a B.A. in Public Health Studies and Anthropology from Johns Hopkins University.

As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**] 
Pre-registration is preferred.
