Raymond Capra, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Classical Studies
Department of Languages Literatures and Cultures

I began teaching in the Department of Classical Studies in 2006 replacing Fr. Eugene Cotter who had been at Seton Hall University since 1965. I teach all levels of ancient Greek, and also a full range of Classical Studies courses in translation.

My research centers on Epic and Lyric poetry of the ancient Hellenic world, in particular the western poets Stesichorus and Ibycus and their reevaluation of the Homeric tradition. I am particularly interested in the role of the poet as an agent in the formation of cultural identity from Homer to Dante.
