The Three Crowns: Texts and Contexts of Medieval Italy

Tre Corone Cut

New Books in Italian Philology and Literature, First edition: Dante 2021

Three Crowns Book Series Poster

This first series of four seminars proposes the presentation of recently published books on Dante within an initiative dedicated to authors and texts of Medieval Italian Philology and Literature and to the most current themes in these disciplines. It aims to promote a fruitful discussion among scholars of various geographical and academic provenances.

The authors and editors of the books will be present at the four meetings that are inspired by the idea of a lively and wide international debate and that will be hosted at the Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway and streamed in collaboration with the Center for Italian Studies and the Devers Family Program in Dante Studies at the University of Notre Dame, and with Ca' Foscari Venezia University, which, together with the University of Toronto, hosts the research project VERTEXCULT (Vernacular Textual Cultures in Dante's Tuscany: Education and Literary Practices in Context, ca. 1250 - ca. 1321).

The series is organized by Italian Studies affiliates, Dr. Chiara Sbordoni of the University of Notre Dame's Rome Global Gateway and Dr. Luca Lombardo, who holds a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Global Fellowship at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the University of Toronto for the VERTEXTCULT project and is a former Devers Postdoctoral Fellow in Dante Studies at the University of Notre Dame's Rome Global Gateway.
