‘Another Dante’ is a series which explores Dante’s texts, contexts, receptions, and rewritings, as well as questions and critiques the concept of a dominant centre (canonical/social/critical) implicit in the concept of ‘otherness’. Subjects include women’s voices in Dante and Dante Studies, salvation in and after the Commedia, Dantean alternatives, and another classical tradition. We will also have a round table discussion on ‘Dantes and Dantisms’. Follow our discussions on social media with #AnotherDante. This series has been co-organized by David Bowe, Somerville College, Oxford, and Rory Sellgren, IMS, Leeds, under the sponsorship of the Leeds Centre for Dante Studies.
