Dante in the 19th Century: 6-8 Sept 2012

6-8 September, 2012

Institute of English Studies, University of London, Senate House

Chair: Stephen Prickett (Regius Professor Emeritus of English, Glasgow University, and Honorary Professor, University of Kent at Canterbury, UK)

For many Victorians Florence was the epitome of Italian culture and tradition – both through the eyes of the historians and critics who interpreted it, and also through the eyes of the Anglo-American community that lived there. Literary critics, historians, art historians and 19th-century scholars will meet during 6-7 September at the University of London to discuss the re-awakening of interest in Dante, Florence and the Renaissance throughout the English-speaking world during the 19th century.

Principal Speakers:
Nicholas Havely (Emeritus Professor English and Related Literature, University of York, UK)
Fabio Camilletti (Asst Professor of Italian, University of Warwick, UK)
Alison Milbank (Associate Professor, Theology & Religious Studies, Nottingham University, UK)
Matthew Reynolds (The Times Lecturer in English, St Anne’s Oxford, UK)
Ralph Pite (Professor of English, and Director of the Centre for Romantic Studies, Bristol University)
