Dr. Papadopoulos joined the Wyoming Catholic College faculty in 2018. A native of New England, he traveled steadily south and west in pursuit of a liberal education: to St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, where he first encountered the great books, and to the University of Dallas, where his dissertation was on Plato’s understanding of philosophic authorship. While at the University of Dallas, he taught in the departments of politics, philosophy, history, and classical education; at Wyoming Catholic College, he has taught courses in the humanities, trivium, and philosophy sequences. Recently Dr. Papadopoulos has held fellowships from the Hertog Foundation, the Jack Miller Center, and the Claremont Institute. In addition to the history of political philosophy, he is especially interested in the classical approach to political history, the American Founding, and the function of educational institutions in political regimes, including our own. His scholarly and popular writing has appeared in Interpretation, First Things, The American Mind, and elsewhere.
