Liv speaks with Vanessa Stovall about studying depictions of hair in myth and tragedy of the Classical world, the intricacies of myth and tragedy broadly, and a healthy dose of why Apollo isn't all that. You can follow Vanessa on twitter here, read her Corona Borealis publication on Medium here, and watch the Barnard/Columbia production of Iphigenia at Aulis here. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
