GLOBAL DANTE (1800 TO PRESENT): TRANSLATIONS, TRANSFORMATIONS, ADAPTATIONS
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
