The Italian Research Seminar: MA Presentations
Genevieve Lyons (Notre Dame) - “Alessandro Blasetti’s Cinema and the Fantastic: A Closer Look at the Unmarried Woman”
Katie Sparrow (Notre Dame) - “Representations of Self: Dante’s Use of First Person in the Vita Nova”
All are welcome for a brief discussion and a reception following the talks.
Co-sponsored by Italian Studies at Notre Dame and the William and Katherine Devers Program in Dante Studies.
Paolo Pellegrini received his Ph.D. in Philology of Italian Literature. He has been a tenured Assistant Professor in Italian philology and linguistics (SSD 10/F-3) at Università di Verona, Department of Cultures and Civilizations, licensed to the role of Full Professor in 2017. His talk will concern Dante's biography. New documents and a new and deeper way of studying Dante's works, their texts and their historical and cultural context carried on by younger scholars is disclosing a different biographical perspective: it is time to write a new life of Dante which could take into account and exploit previous studies which have looked at Dante's life.
