Ambre Dromgoole (joint research in African American Studies) holds a B.A. in Musical Studies and Religion from Oberlin College & Conservatory and an M.A. in Religion from Yale Divinity School and Institute of Sacred Music. Her Dissertation, “There’s a Heaven Somewhere: Itinerancy, Intimacy, and Performance in the Lives of Gospel Blues Women, 1915-1983,” positions the friendships, micro-interactions, and collaborations of an intimate circle of Black women gospel musicians (Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Roxie Ann Moore, Ernestine Washington, Marie Knight) as untilled sites worthy of critical Black feminist engagement, sociohistorical consideration, and nuanced religious analysis.
