While studying Spanish and music at Messiah, Hannah Snavely '18 desired a career that combined her two interests, and when she stumbled upon ethnomusicology, it seemed to be the perfect fit. Hannah's study abroad in Chile provided her with countless opportunities to learn about and perform Chilean folk and popular music. She completed her master's in ethnomusicology at the University of California, Riverside in 2020 and is continuing coursework in the PhD program. Hannah has presented at academic conferences in Riverside, California, and Oxford, England, and she performs in Mayupatapi, UC Riverside's Andean music ensemble. For her dissertation, she plans to study women's folk music in Chile and its relationship to nationalism and pedagogical practices.
