Jennifer Walker

Jennifer Walker is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she is writing a dissertation entitled “Sounding the Ralliement: Republican Reconfigurations of Catholicism in the Music of Third-Republic Paris, 1880–1905.” Her work examines the ways in which music and musical performance—along with its reception—transformed Catholicism into a valuable aspect of “secular” Republican identity. She has presented her paper at conferences both in the United States and in Europe; her paper on Darius Milhaud’s Esther de Carpentras won the Student Presentation Award from the Southeast Chapter of the American Musicological Society for 2014–2015. Her research has been supported by numerous grants and fellowships, including the M. Elizabeth C. Bartlet Travel Grant for Research in France from the AMS. Jennifer is currently the Harold J. Glass USAF Graduate Fellow in Music at UNC.
