Martha Attridge Bufton is the Interdisciplinary Studies librarian at Carleton’s MacOdrum Library. In her role at the library, Attridge Bufton supports the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, as well as students in the Indigenous Enriched Support Program.

“As Amelia Earhart said: ‘Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.’ I believe – and hope – that this committee is a place where we will have the courage to engage in the critical relationship work we must do to ensure that our campus is a kind and fair space for all students, faculty and staff,” says Attridge Bufton.

Her research interests include women and work, game-based learning and culturally responsive instruction. Her master’s thesis, Solidarity by Association: The Unionization of Faculty, Academic Librarians and Support Staff at Carleton University (1973-1976), won the Eugene A. Forsey Prize for the best thesis on labour history, awarded by the Canadian Historical Association.
