Emily C. Mohr
Graduate Teaching Assistant

Emily Mohr was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and received her B.A. in Ancient Greek and Latin from Boston University in May 2012.  She studied at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical 
Studies in Rome during her spring 2011 semester.  Her senior thesis explored the textual relationships between Homer’s Iliad and 
Odyssey and the visual representations on Attic painted pottery from the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
  In April 2012, she presented a portion of her thesis research at the Fourth Annual Art History Symposium at the Museum
 of Fine Arts.  Emily also spent time at the British Museum in London comparing imagery of the sphinx in Sophocles’ Oedipus Tyrannus on Attic pottery to the original Greek text.

Emily presented a paper entitled, "Women in the Gallic War: A Hidden Literary Device in Julius Caesar's Commentarii de bello Gallico" at the annual GRID (Graduate Student Interaction Day) conference hosted by ARHU at UMD, on Wednesday, April 9th. Currently, she is researching the term "agalma" when used to describe women in the plays of Euripides. In her free time, Emily rehearses with the University of Maryland Repertoire Orchestra, which performs its final concert of the season on April 23rd. This summer, Emily will travel to Greece to participate in the Summer Session of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, fully funded by the generous E. Adelaide Hahn Scholarship, offered by the Classical Association of Atlantic States. In October, Emily will present her Mediterranean experiences at the CAAS 2014 Annual Meeting.
