Lecture: "Dante's Other Works: Convivio and De vulgari eloquentia


Location: Special Collections, Hesburgh Libraries

Convivio with Simon Gilson, professor at the University of Warwick.

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 publication and a 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 US, Italy, and the UK 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.”
