This working group aims to promote the growing community of scholars involved with Dante studies. Its intention is to continue expanding the interdisciplinary dialogue that has flourished for the past ten years. We run our informal meetings in order to provide the participants with a venue to discuss current research and work in progress. To this end, we organize different monthly events, which appeal to a variety of audiences within the Yale community. These events also guarantee the participants exposure to different perspectives on Dante, at various stages of research, and with different goals.
In addition, the group holds informal lunch meetings and talks featuring professors from other universities as well as hosting the annual Yale Dante Lecture.
