Meredith Doster, Managing Editor, ECDS

“I am delighted to be returning to ECDS in a new capacity.” – Meredith Doster

Meredith Doster has returned to ECDS (in a remote fashion) as the managing editor of Sounding Spirit: Scholarly Editions from the Southern Sacred Music DiasporaMeredith originally honed her digital humanities skills in ECDS while attending school. In more recent history, Meredith worked at Mars Hill University as dean of adult and graduate studies and at iDesign as the senior learning architect and training coordinator of a curriculum development team. She currently teaches in the Religious Studies Department at the University of North Carolina at Asheville.

Born in Cincinnati, OH, Meredith was raised in Ridgewood, NJ, until her family moved to the former East Germany in the early 1990s. As an “opera brat,” she moved frequently. For the past 10 years, Meredith and her husband have lived in North Carolina, Arkansas, and Georgia. They now make their home in Weaverville, NC, a small town just north of Asheville.

Meredith holds a bachelor’s degree in music from Barnard College, Columbia University, a master’s degree in Appalachian studies from Appalachian State University, and a PhD in philosophy (religious studies) from Emory.

Says Meredith, “I am delighted to be returning to the Center in a new capacity. This position combines my research interests and disciplinary homes in both Religious and Appalachian Studies with my strong administrative and project management profile. I’m looking forward to working with the greater Emory community as Sounding Spirit moves into production.”
