The CSMBR joins the worldwide celebrations for the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death (1321-2021) with an international online symposium dedicated to Dante’s poetical and scientific mind. Gathering scholars who approach his work and times from interdisciplinary perspectives, the webinar will address how Dante shaped an understanding of the human body and mind, and his relationship with medical and scientific thought in his philosophical and literary oeuvre.
The event is organized by Matteo Pace (Connecticut College), the recipient of the 2020 Santorio Award for Excellence in Research, and features keynote speakers such as: Andrea Celli (University of Connecticut), Ivano Dal Prete (Yale University), Eva Del Soldato (University of Pennsylvania), Anna Somfai (Central European University), Christiana Purdy-Moudarres (Yale University), and Arielle Saiber (Bowdoin College).
