Rereading Dante’s Vita nova

I want to take a moment to introduce a new Dante project taking place over the next two years, led by researchers from eight universities, and involving colleagues from even more institutions. This ambitious network will go back to the Florentine poet’s ‘little book’ and, through rereading Dante’s Vita nova in it’s historical, intellectual, material, literary context and afterlife will reconsider the import of Dante’s (probably) first foray into long form literary production.
