Chloe Smith is a third year PhD student in Music History. Her research focuses on folk and popular music in the U.S. South in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially as it relates to Civil War memory. She holds an M.A. in Music History from Yale University and a B.A. in History and Music (violin performance) from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. Chloe has experience with both academic and public-facing writing, and she is interested in helping students at all stages of the writing process, from rough drafts of projects to conference talks to larger-scale research projects. She looks forward to helping graduate students clearly communicate their arguments and ideas for whichever audience they hope to reach.
