Meredith Martin is the Faculty Director of the Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton which started under her leadership in 2014. She is one of the strongest advocates for GradFUTURES and for diverse careers for graduate students, and frequently partners with GradFUTURES and other campus partners to support and empower graduate students. For example, she was instrumental in co-creating the How We Work Series with GradFUTURES, an event series centered around the theme of academic work, which asks: what does it mean to work in “alternative” academia? What does it mean to pursue “traditional” academic jobs in today’s changing educational landscape? Breaking down the barrier between traditional and alternative, the series invites CDH staffers and postdocs to have open and honest conversations about their jobs, how they got there, and how they get them done. She has also mentored numerous University Administrative Fellows and hosted fellows at the Center for Digital Humanities.
