Camilla Ammirati is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the First-Year Program and Interim Administrative Director of the Sustainability Program at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY.  Camilla received her Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia, where she focused on the relationship between domestic space and national belonging in late 19th and early 20th century American literature and music.  She worked for several years as a folklorist and Director of Research and Programs at TAUNY (Traditional Arts in Upstate New York) where she conducted research and developed programs and exhibits highlighting the living traditions of northern New York’s North Country.  Along with work in folklore and higher education, she has been active musician playing guitar and banjo as well as singing and writing music inspired by a range of American roots traditions.  Her current teaching and research focus on the intersections between folklife and sustainability as encountered through practices and knowledge around local and regional foodways and related experiences and expressions of conscious ecological kinship.
