Divisional Chair

  • Peter Naccarato

    Peter Naccarato has been at Marymount Manhattan College for 14 years.  He hails from Philadelphia (the Tacony section of Northeast Philadelphia to be exact) and has lived on Long Island (he earned his Ph.D. from Stony Brook), Astoria, Forest Hills, and now lives in Manhattan.  When not teaching or engaged in work related to his teaching or to his service as Chair of the Humanities Division, he is likely cooking (Italian food is his speciality), dining out, or watching MSNBC (or The Golden Girls or The Young and the Restless).  Peter is thrilled by his new office in the Faculty Center so stop by the Humanities division office on the third floor to say hello.
