In connection with the celebrations to mark the 2021 Dante centenary the Devers Family Program in Dante Studies and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Notre Dame has organized a two-day workshop on “Themes, traditions, and cultures in Dante / Temi, tradizioni e culture nelle opere di Dante”, which will be held on May 13-14, 2021 at the Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway in via Ostilia. The aim of the seminar is to to assess the ways in which Anglo-American Dante scholarship and Italian dantismo have addressed key literary, cultural, and historical issues. The seminar is divided into seven sessions. Each session will host two speakers: one of whom will focus on Italy and the other on the English-speaking world.
This workshop will be open to invited speakers and discussants only.
