PhD, Brown University 2008
From 2008 to 2016, Phil taught at Washington College, where he offered a variety of literature and writing classes, Latin, and ancient Greek. With the Paideia Institute, he led a short-term study abroad trip to Greece during which he and his students visited archaeological sites, churches, and museums in Athens, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, and Thessaloniki.
Phil is the editor of Brill’s Companion to the Reception of Aristophanes (reviewed here), a wide-ranging book that explores the ways in which the plays of Aristophanes have been understood, appropriated, translated, taught, and staged from antiquity to the present. His scholarly work has appeared in Classical Receptions Journal (Oxford), and he has written essays on teaching and learning for the online classics journal, Eidolon. Two short articles for The Encyclopedia of Greek Comedy (Wiley) appeared in 2019.
Since arriving at St. Andrew’s, Phil has taught Latin and ancient Greek at all levels, as well as sections of English 2 and English 4. He also served as an Academic Advisor for the V Form boys. In the spring of 2019, he collaborated again with the Paideia Institute, leading eight St. Andrew’s students on a twelve-day study abroad trip to Italy. He lives in Chestertown with his wife, Mindy, and their three children, Brian, Eleanor, and Andrew.
