Zachary Domach is a PhD Candidate (Christianity) in the Department of Religion at Columbia University. His dissertation focuses on the role played by wisdom literature in the transmission and reception of the classical tradition among Christians. He is particularly interested in questions of meaning making, community formation, and identity construction arising from the intersection of paremiology and practice. He also writes on ancient education, early Christian music, and canon law. In addition to his textual research, he has excavated at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods (Samothrace, Greece) and Hadrian’s Villa (Tivoli, Italy).

He currently holds appointments as a Core Preceptor for Columbia’s flagship Literature Humanities course and as a Senior Teaching Consultant with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL).  He was previously selected for the CTL’s Teaching Assessment Fellowship, Senior CTL Fellowship, and Teaching Observation Fellowship. He is Beinecke Scholar and a recipient of the University of Oxford’s George and Apphia Woodruffe Scholarship in Theology. Most recently he received the Core Preceptor Award for Teaching Excellence.
