Dawn Marie Hayes

Dawn Marie Hayes, Ph.D. is an associate professor of medieval history whose scholarly work focuses on the Norman period of Sicily and southern Italy (11th and 12th centuries). Her most recent publication is an article that explores the complex meaning behind the mosaic of Sicily's first king, Roger II, in Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio (more commonly known as the Martorana). Dawn is a dual US-Italian citizen and has spent a good number of summers leading an academic study abroad program on the island of which she is the founding director. She and her husband, Joe, are the enormously proud parents of seven children: Joseph Jr., Anastasia, Madeleine, Alessandra, Aidan, Adriano and Carlo. Finding free time is not easy, but when she does, she enjoys watching foreign (especially Italian) films, taking in Barclays and Serie A soccer and going on day trips with her family.
