Dante’s Other Works 2015: A Celebration of the 750th Anniversary of Dante’s Birth
Eclogues by Jonathan Combs-Schilling, assistant professor of Italian at Ohio State University
Fiore and Detto d’Amore by Christopher Kleinhenz, professor emeritus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison
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.”
