Location: Special Collections, Hesburgh Libraries

Vita nova with Zygmunt G. Baranski, Notre Dame Professor of Dante and Italian Studies and Emeritus Serena Professor of Italian, University of Cambridge

To commemorate the 750th anniversary of Dante’s birth, Italian Studies at Notre Dame is hosting a celebration of the poet’s so-called “minor works” with a a publication and lecture series throughout 2015.

Co-sponsored by the William & Katherine Devers Program in Dante Studies and Italian Studies at Notre Dame, the series takes place on eight Thursdays throughout 2015, beginning in January and ending in November. Twelve prominent scholars from the U.S., Italy and the U.K. have been invited to deliver lectures in the series. Each lecture addresses one of the “other works” by presenting the principal interpretive trends and issues relating to the text and focusing on some of its aspects of particular interest. In conjunction with the lecture series, Notre Dame University Press will publish a “companion to Dante’s other works.”
