"Re-reading Dante’s Vita nova" is a collaborative research project involving researchers from University College London, the University of Bristol, the University of Cambridge, the University of Leeds, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Oxford, the University of Reading, and the University of Warwick.

A series of events held over two years, each focusing on a different section of the Vita nova, its contexts and its implications, will produce a vibrant and varied new reading of this text. Lectures are livestreamed and discussions are facilitated via videoconference.
