Talk: 'Make America Truly Musical:' Annabel Morris Buchanan's White Nationalist Folk Fantasy
Aldona Dye is a doctoral candidate of critical and comparative studies of music at the University of Virginia. Her dissertation on folk song collecting practices of early twentieth-century America calls attention to the large number of educated white women working as song collectors, simultaneously exploring how their race, gender, and class positionality uniquely shaped their work and the way they heard the music itself.
Wilson Library Pre-Dissertation Prospectus Fellowship
Talk: Warfare and the Southern Environment
Camden Elliott is a Ph.D. student in history at Harvard University. He studies American environmental history. In particular, he is interested in the intersection of warfare and the environment. His research at the Wilson Library involves conceptualizing army camps and spaces created by the military in the American South as pseudo-urban environments. This research is intended to form the basis of a dissertation on warfare and the environment in early America.
