The DSA Graduate Group aims to bring together graduate members of the Dante Society of America and all students and recent graduates interested in Dante’s life and works. It provides a space to share proposals and ideas that would benefit Dante scholars in the making, and to express needs and concerns about their academic and professional careers in Dante studies.
The first virtual meeting of the Graduate Group was held on February 16, 2022, and saw the participation of a great number of DSA student members. Future meetings will likewise be held remotely, in order to facilitate a broader attendance. Through its platforms and bulletin, the Graduate Group aims to build a tight-knit community where communications can be rapid and wide-reaching, and to bring visibility to the initiatives of the DSA and widen its public outreach.

This spring, the DSA Graduate Group will be reading and discussing Brunetto Latini's La Rettorica.
We will meet three times: February 16, March 23, and April 20 at 2pm ET via Zoom. This semester we will have three professors who will help us get the most from our readings.
The first meeting - February 16 - will see the participation of Professor Eugenio Refini, Associate Professor of Italian at New York University. We will discuss the first part of the Rettorica, up to page 50 of the Italian text (Latini, La rettorica, a cura di F. Maggini, Firenze, Le Monnier, 1968) - or p. 47 of the English (ed. Stefania D'Agata D'Ottavi). Please email us if you need scans of the text (English or Italian).
