Incipit vita nova

The first event in the new series ‘Re-reading Dante’s Vita nova’.

This is a collaborative research project involving researchers from University College London, University of Bristol, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Notre Dame, University of Oxford, University of Reading, and the University of Warwick.  A series of events held over two years, each focusing on a different section of the Vita nova, its contexts and its implications, will produce a vibrant and varied new reading of this text.
