Meg Williams is a student at the CUNY Graduate Center Program for Digital Humanities and holds an MFA in Poetry from Hunter College, where she worked as an adjunct lecturer and a substitute administrative coordinator. With this background, Meg explores the intersection of art and technology through digital poetics. She is currently working as a project coordinator for the New York Public Interest Group at Queens College, where she works on issues such as higher education affordability and campus sustainability.
Her main role in the Newbury project is outreach. She is particularly interested in issues around the importance of minority representation, the concept of whiteness, the economy of prizes and their ancient origins. Meg hopes her explorations of these topics will contextualize her groups finding in a critical analysis of the Newbury Prize.
