Tristan Kay (Bristol); Manuele Gragnolati (Paris-Sorbonne); Elena Lombardi (Oxford); Francesca Southerden (Oxford)

Online - Zoom

In this online event, part of a series at the University of Bristol to mark the 700th anniversary of Dante's death, Tristan Kay (Bristol) will take part in a conversation with the three editors of the recently published Oxford Handbook of Dante: Manuele Gragnolati (Paris-Sorbonne), Elena Lombardi (Oxford) and Francesca Southerden (Oxford).

The Handbook contains forty-four chapters written by scholars at different career stages around the world and spans a number of disciplines. As well as exploring some key themes, contexts, and sources in Dante’s work, the volume also places a strong emphasis on new theoretical approaches and on Dante’s modern reception.  The conversation will focus on the distinctive aims and scope of the Handbook; on current and future directions in Dante studies; on Dante as a global author; and on what we can learn from reading Dante in the twenty-first century.
