Cameron Pearson

Adjunct Lecturer of Classics

Classics PhD, ABD Graduate Center, CUNY

Cameron Pearson teaches Classics 150: Classics in translation. He has taught at the college since 2007. The aims of his teaching are diverse: from developing reading, critical thinking, and writing skills to asking deeper questions about who we are, the Greek and Roman classics are studied in order to provide students with a knowledge of the past that fosters a richer engagement with one's own ideas as well as with the modern, global world in which we all live.


His main research interests are in ancient Greek literature, epigraphy, and archaeology. More specifically, he studies Archaic Greek grave inscriptions and their relationship to the monuments of which they were a part. The larger questions associated with these inscriptions vary from, where did they originally stand? to, how were they understood in their original sociopolitical and ritual contexts?
