Bio and Research

Bradley completed his Masters research in 2013 at the U of T, writing on the metapoetics of bougonia in Vergil’s fourth Georgic. After that, he took a hard one-eighty and focused his PhD research on Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War. In November 2019 he successfully defended his thesis, entitled “Vision, Fear, and Knowledge in Thucydides’ History.” As a graduate student, he completed several foreign programs in language, ancient history, and classical archaeology, including German for Classics Students at the University of Cologne and the Regular Program at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. He is currently employed as a Lecturer in the Classics Department at Toronto, teaching Latin and Greek language and literature. He also regularly teaches Latin classes freelance, through the wonders of the internet, to high school students in China.
