AAIS Call For Papers Global Dante

21 Jan 2022 9:10 AM | Natale Vacalebre



In modern times, Dante’s work has been the object of an impressive number of appropriations, reinterpretations, and transformations of various kinds. Theatrical and film adaptations are but two well-known examples, yet the poet’s influence resonates widely across many other media and artistic genres, from music to graphic novels to videogames. Concomitantly, a number of translations have been published which made his works available for the first time to new linguistic communities, thereby tracing what can be considered as a sort of “global Dante” phenomenon.

At the 2022 AAIS-AATI annual conference, the international journal Bibliotheca Dantesca is sponsoring a panel (or series of panels) exploring global appropriations and adaptions of Dante’s works as they relate to language, literature, performative arts, and new media.


We plan to have a session in both sections of the 2022 conference, the virtual and the in-person in Bologna. The panel(s) is sponsored by Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies


Please send a 150-200 word abstract and a short CV to by January 31st, 2022. Make sure to include whether you are applying for the online or the in-person format.
