David P. Bénéteau, Ph.D.

Professor of Italian and Director of Italian Studies
Department of Languages Literatures and Cultures

My main interests are in Medieval and Renaissance Italian Literature; I work on early prose translations from French and I am preparing a critical edition of a text entitled "Li fatti de' Romani", dated 1313, for the Italian publisher Edizione Nazionale degli Antichi Volgarizzamenti. I have been at Seton Hall since 1992, and before that I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. I grew up in Italy and then lived ten years in French Canada.

I also teach Italian Melodrama and the Medieval colloquium of the Honors Program. I have also taught CORE 1101 The Journey of Transformation and CORE 3101 Engaging the World. I am currently vice-chair of the Faculty Senate and Chair of the Faculty Development Committee and the Faculty Guide Committee.
