Dr. Jeffrey White, professor and chair of the Department of Classical Languages at St. Bonaventure University, has finalized two scholarly publications with the editorship of two distinguished university presses.
Harvard University Press (under the I Tatti imprint) will publish volume 2 of White’s “Biondo Flavio: Italy Illuminated” on March 28. White first used Biondo Flavio, a Renaissance Latin cultural geographer (or chorographer), for his doctoral dissertation at the University at Buffalo and first published on him in 1984.
Volume 1 of White’s “Italy Illuminated” was published by Harvard University Press in 2005, receiving favorable review including in the New York Review of Books.
In April, Leuven University Press will publish Dr. White’s essay, “Biondo Flavio as Henry James’s Dencombe (?): Revising the Italia Illustrata.”
The essay is about Biondo Flavio’s methods of composition and revision and will be published in a volume titled “A New Sense of the Past: the Scholarship of Biondo Flavio (1392-1463),” edited by Angelo Mazzocco and Marc Laureys (Supplementa Humanistica Lovaniensia).
White’s paper was delivered, by invitation, at the Renaissance Society of America’s annual meetings in New York City in March 2014.
White has been teaching Latin and Greek at St. Bonaventure since 1976.
