Session 7

Authenticity and the other works by Albert R. Ascoli, Gladyce Arata Terrill Distinguished Professor at University of California Berkeley

To commemorate the 750th anniversary of Dante’s birth, Italian Studies at Notre Dame hosts 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.”
