Mr. Pang is a teacher and scholar, currently completing his dissertation toward a Ph.D. in classical studies from Boston University. Inspired by his experience learning Latin and Greek in high school, Mr. Pang went into the field as an undergraduate, and he has not looked back since. He has published articles on and translations of Greek and Roman works of literature in different peer-reviewed journals. His dissertation seeks to consider the influence of two of antiquity’s finest poets, Homer and Hesiod, on the late antique Greek poet Quintus of Smyrna, who lived in the Roman empire, and so his project spans nearly all of classical antiquity treating both Greek and Roman texts. He is also co-editing a book on a never-before-seen manuscript by the Irish Romantic poet, Thomas Moore. Mr. Pang’s academic interests vary widely and continue to grow.
As a teacher, Mr. Pang believes that the study of Greek and Latin language and literature is the linchpin of a classical education, without which a classical curriculum would be little more than a faint shadow of the real thing. In this capacity, he has taught at the collegiate level for the past five years as a junior teaching fellow at Boston University, and looks forward to bringing his enthusiasm and expertise to Golden View Classical Academy.
Outside the academy, Mr. Pang enjoys composing music, hiking, swimming, gardening, and doing whatever else the great Colorado outdoors will allow him to do.
