Caroline Beschea-Fache

Caroline Beschea-Fache
Ph.D. Indiana University

I'm a native of northern France, and I love teaching my language to students because I love to see them go from hesitant to talkative as they gain confidence.

Florin Beshea

I teach introductory level French and advanced pre-modern literature, oral expression, and French phonetics. I'm currently resident director for the Davidson in France study abroad program in Tours, France.

D. Henry Buckley
Ph.D. University of Michigan

While my original interests lay in theater, what I find attractive about teaching at Davidson is the chance to engage students at all levels, from elementary language study to the completion of a senior major thesis.

I teach basic and intermediate language courses, introduction to French and Francophone literatures and cultures, and advanced courses in Francophone authors from North Africa and Vietnam. I am interested in studying and teaching writers considered marginal in their own times or contexts.
