Papers will be delivered online, and are free and open to the public. Please register here. Film screenings will be taking place at the UW Cinematheque. Dante performances will be available both on UW-Madison campus and online. For more information, please consult the program.

Beyond paper sessions on Dante in/and filmmaking, economy, visual arts, the conference will focus on Dante and the issue of race the US, as well as on Dante reception in world literature.
