"I am excited to work on new media iniatives as part of the GradFutures program. In the 21st century, digital technology has transformed the circulation of information and knowledge both spatially and temporally. This project is a great avenue to explore the various ways graduate students can use new media in their work. This will also contribute immensely to the professional development of those students who have the desire to be public intellectuals.
The GradFutures program is a great initiative for the professional development of graduate students at Princeton."
