Dept. of French & Italian | Dante after Dante Virtual Conference

April 28, 2022 - May 2, 2022

With this multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and multimedia conference the UW-Madison joins in world-wide celebrations of the septcentenary of Dante’s death in 2021. Beyond paper sessions on Dante in/and filmmaking, economy, visual arts, the conference will focus on Dante’s reception in the African-American community in the US, in world film and literature, classical and contemporary music, to name but a few salient topics. This event will pair in a unique way these more traditional modes of academic inquiry with dance performances in collaboration with Li Chiao-Ping and her Dance Troupe (with a choreography inspired by Dante’s Inferno), and with a series of film screenings at the UW Cinematheque and Marquee Cinema at Union South.

This event will now be virtual. More information to come.
