PhD in Classical Studies
435 S State St, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1003
Zacharias received his B.A. from the National University of Athens. His main interests revolve
around the world of fiction and the history of ideas, particularly those of power and resistance in
the ancient world seen through a literary lens. He has written papers on the Katabasis motif in
Silver Latin Poetry, on Nietzsche and Ancient Rhetoric, on Lucian's How to Write History, and
on decision-making policy in Caesar. He is currently working on Machiavelli's satiric Virtù, as
well as on Petronius' “Reality” of the Virtual.
When he has “free” time (brought about by his decision to adopt Gilgamesh-style sleeping
patterns), Zacharias enjoys drawing and directing short films – to which end he is currently
collaborating with the National Gallery of Athens and the Prague Film School.
