Grace Matthews '22

Comparative Literature

Welcome Whitman Class of 2025! My name is Grace, and I’m from Charlotte, North Carolina. I'm a senior in the Comparative Literature Department, with a certificate in Music Performance (voice). My main academic interest is Early Modern literatures in English, Italian, and Latin (I'm working on adding German and French), with a special focus on lyric poetry, the letter-writing tradition, Classical allusion in poetry, and women’s roles in literature. Outside of class, I work as a Fellow in the Writing Center, sing in the Chapel Choir, roam the vaults of Firestone Library as a Student Assistant in Rare Books and Special Collections, and serve on the board of Princeton Opera Company. I’m so excited to meet you all, and to chat about academics, work-life balance, music, books, food, or anything else with you. Go Whales!
