Chloe McElligott ’16 is a Global Studies and Anthropology double major. She has been a part of the Weave since her fall semester of her first year at SLU. Through the Weave, Chloe was able to attend the National Conference for Media Reform 2013 in Denver, CO, and later has gone on to become an intern and blogger (focusing mostly on rural poverty). Chloe worked with other Weavers to create videos for “Big Questions,” an interviewing and archiving project inspired by Dropping Knowledge. The filming and editing experience she gained while interning for the Weave has been very valuable to Chloe throughout her St. Lawrence career. With help from the Weave, the Global Studies Department, and Professor Natalia Singer, she and two other students (Anna Kowanko and April VanOrman) received a grant from the university’s Mellon Humanities Grant. This grant provided funds so that she and the other students could create a short documentary film about seed sovereignty in India while they studied abroad in the 2014 fall semester.
