Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante's Comedy: Workshop on Purgatorio V

Thursday 14th February at 11.30am in Room 121, Information Technology Center

Teleconferenced workshop on Purgatorio V with scholars and students from Leeds, Notre Dame and Cambridge 

Inferno V, Purgatorio V, Paradiso V: lecture by Robin Kirkpatrick at Cambridge University at 1pm (EST) to be broadcast at a later date.

Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante’s Comedy is a four-year long series of workshops and public lectures organized by the Department of Italian at Cambridge in collaboration with the Leeds Centre for Dante Studies. The lectures explore the “vertical” connections between cantos of the same number across all three canticles. Scholars and students at Cambridge, Leeds and Notre Dame participate in workshops on single cantos via teleconference before each lecture. This is the first time that this method of reading (a method that has been discussed by Dante scholars and executed very successfully in studies of single cantos) will be systematically employed to tackle the entire poem.
