About this event

REGISTRATION CLOSES on Thursday, April 15th at noon ET.

A three-day international symposium devoted to Dante’s political thought organized by the working group Theorizing Italy under the auspices of the Central New York Humanities Corridor, which includes faculty members from the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Rochester; the Department of Philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology; the Department of Romance Studies at Cornell University; and the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics at Syracuse University.

The symposium is based on the premise that political concerns are not only inseparable from Dante’s biography but they also permeate the whole corpus of the poet’s works and emerge in various ways at the intersection of all fields of knowledge that he explores. While elucidating for us the natural integration of the humanities with the sciences, Dante continues to be a source of provocative insights and inspirations on how to be political beings today.
