Molly Mata completed a B.A. in Classical Studies and Humanities in 2014 at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Molly has taught introductory Greek and Latin. Molly focuses her scholarship on Greek tragedy, and is writing her thesis on how the language of illness in the Sophoclean plays Ajax and Philoctetes demonstrates the elements of a cathartic healing experience, and comparing these cathartic experiences in the Theater of Dionysus to the dream experience of a worshipper in the Temple of Asclepius.
