B.A. English and Comparative Literature (Ancient Greek and Latin), The City University of New York
Zach Hayworth earned his B.A. In 2016 from CUNY's Macaulay Honors College. His honors thesis, "Hermeneutics as Synthetic Construction," explored the influence of Kantian epistemology on Schleiermacher's understanding of Plato's Phaedrus. More broadly, Zach's research addresses problems in classical reception, focusing on the philosophical pressures that shaped classical-philological practice and mediated understanding of Greek and Roman thought in late Enlightenment and early Romantic Germany. He is particularly interested in Plato, Kant, and Goethe and in Greek, Latin, French, Italian, English, and German lyric poetry from all periods. He plans to complete a minor Ph.D. field in Classical Philology during his time at Harvard.
