Dante Notes

Dante Notes is a new web space in which current and engaging research and pedagogy projects related to Dante will be featured. In keeping with the original mission of the Electronic Bulletin of the Dante Society of America, and widening it to include a distinct pedagogical section and one devoted to essays by students, this  new venue will host vetted projects and essays for a period of one year, ensuring additional prominence and immediate availability to the readership. With the change of the calendar year, essays that have appeared in this space will migrate permanently to the EBDSA archive in their appropriate sections. With this new series of the EBDSA, our desire is to continue to encourage discussion and debate among Dante scholars by publishing new work that deserves a first airing. Since our electronic format allows the editorial board both to respond to and to publish submissions quickly, publication is possible more rapidly than in any forum devoted to Dante of which we know.

Follow the links below to browse articles pertaining to each domain of Dante Notes. For archived, pre-2015, material, please visit the EBDSA site.

For submission and other information please contact our editor:
