Q&A with postdoctoral fellow Suzanne Lye

(02/06/18 7:00am)

Postdoctoral fellow Suzanne Lye specializes in classical literature and mythology. However, her journey to becoming a classics professor was a “long, winding road,” according to Lye. After receiving a bachelor’s degree in organic chemistry from Harvard University, Lye pursued web design. During her honeymoon in Greece several years ago, as she was walking through the Akrotiri archaeological site, Lye had an epiphany — studying Greek and Roman classics was her calling. She then obtained a graduate degree in classics from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2016. Afterward, Lye came to Dartmouth for her postdoctoral fellowship, which is currently in its second and final year. Lye is currently teaching Classical Studies 10.07, also cross-listed as Religion 19.24, “Ancient Magic and Religion.”
