Re-Reading Dante's Vita Nova, Chapters 40-42


Location: Rome Global Gateway

"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.

This two-day event is the final meeting of the series of workshops which have been held over the past two years. It will be hosted by the University of Notre Dame at its Rome Global Gateway and, as with previous meetings, the discussion will take place mostly in English.

Given the on-going nature of this project, attendance is restricted to participating and invited parties only. Please contact with any questions about the meeting.

Sponsored by the Devers Family Program in Dante Studies and the Center for Italian Studies.
