Amy Lather


Ph.D. University of Texas at Austin (in progress, expected 2016), Dissertation: "The Aesthetics of Dialect in Archaic and Classical Choral Lyric" 
M.A. University of Texas at Austin (2012), Master's Thesis: "Cooperative Commemoration: Simonides on the Persian Wars"

Research Interests: 

My dissertation focuses on Greek choral poetry of the 6th and 5th centuries, and the evolution of choral lyric and its incorporation into Athenian tragedy. More broadly, I am interested in archaic Greek poetry and classical Greek literature. I also maintain interests in literary theory and comparative literature, particularly with respect to different constructions of imperialism and "other-ness" in both ancient and modern texts.
