This was a great second event in out #VitanovaUK series, hosted by colleagues at UCL, with a lovely exhibition of important early printed editions of Dante’s Vita nova and the Divine Comedy. Have a look for the Catherine Keen’s twitter live introduction to the collection on the #VitanovaUK hashtag.
There will be some more blogs about this and other events soon, so do keep an eye on the ‘Re-reading Dante’s Vita nova’ blog, and sorry about the coffee Kenneth…
We’re delighted to announce that, as well as the presentations and discussion, there will be a small book display to accompany the day, featuring Special Collections material including the editio princeps of 1576, and some other wonderful 16th, 18th and 19th century material. This will be on display in the Special Collections Reading Room in the South Junction, adjacent to the main event in the Institute for Advanced Studies.
