To mark the 700th anniversary of the poet’s death, the Dante Society of America and Harvard University are together organizing an international symposium on the reception and influence of Dante and his work from Canada to Chile from May 6-8, 2021. This collaboration commemorates the origins of "The Dante Society” in 19th-century Cambridge, but aims also to display the wider range of Dante’s presence as found in the Harvard collections. Yet our main goal is to highlight the reception of Dante in all parts of the Americas, and among readers of different intersectional identities. We welcome contributions that consider the poet’s legacy in a variety of different spheres. See our Call for Papers in the menu above to learn more and to submit your contribution.
Please note: The response to COVID-19 is a continuously evolving process. The organizers will continue to monitor local, national and international policies in order to guarantee speakers, colleagues and students the most productive conditions for both in-person and virtual participation, adopting if necessary a hybrid format.
