DSA Graduate Student Group

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.

Upcoming Events

This fall, the DSA Graduate Group will be hosting a reading group on Brunetto Latini’s Tesoretto. The first session will be held on September 23 from 2-3 pm EST. Participants will read and discuss the dedication and incipit (verses 1-282). Catherine Keen (Professor of Dante Studies at University College London) will join our first meeting and help us kick off the reading group with introductory tips on how to read Brunetto’s works.

Subsequent reading group meetings will be held on October 21, November 18, and December 9. Interested graduate students can email dantesociety.graduate@gmail.com for more information, including the session link.
