Abstract

In the ‘Another Dante’ series we have explored Dante’s texts, contexts, receptions, and rewritings, as well as questioned and critiqued the concept of a dominant centre (canonical/social/critical) implicit in the concept of ‘otherness’. This round table will continue to discuss these themes in particular as they emerge through the reading and reception of Dante under the banner of ‘Dantes and Dantisms’. Follow our discussions on social media with #AnotherDante.

Participants include Jason Allen (University of Leeds), Martina Bonciani (Universit√† Ca’ Foscari), and Serena Vandi (University of Leeds).
