Observatory on Dante Studies

course

The Department of Italian Language and Culture offers the course Dante’s Afterlives: testi e ricezione, entirely dedicated to the Medieval Author and the reception of his work.
Through the close reading of the text, the seminars intend to critically interpret the Comedy and to reflect upon the relation between this masterpiece and other Western literary traditions, as well as the visual and performing arts, music and games.

The next course will start on 11 November 2020. Here you can read all information to enroll and the full programme.


This course is part of the Luistertaal offer. This means that, in order to follow it, a passive knowledge of Italian is enough; while you will be allowed to read the related literature and to write all your assignments either in Dutch or in English.
Moreover, if you are an exchange student, you are allowed to choose an early exit option.
