Ravarino Lecture: "Hidden Spaces, Private Lives: Getting Inside the Italian Renaissance Home" - Abigail Brundin (Cambridge)

Location: Nanovic Seminar Room (1050 Nanovic Hall)

Annual Ravarino Lecture

How do we penetrate the Renaissance home? While we know plenty about the grand palazzi of the ruling classes, more ordinary households cannot be adequately encompassed in any one type of source nor by means of a single approach. Through the study of books, buildings, objects, spaces, images and archives, the private lives of Renaissance Italians can be glimpsed in snatches. This talk presents the results of a 4-year interdisciplinary study, using such fragments and glimpses to build a picture of domestic activities. 

Abigail Brundin is co-Chair of the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages at the University of Cambridge, a Reader in Early Modern Literature and Culture, and a Fellow of St Catharine’s College. 

Co-sponsored by Italian Studies at Notre Dame and by the William and Katherine Devers Series in Dante Studies.

Lecture: "Towards a New Biography of Dante Alighieri" - Paolo Pellegrini (Verona)

Location: Rare Books and Special Collections, Hesburgh Library

Paolo Pellegrini received his Ph.D. in Philology of Italian Literature. He has been a tenured Assistant Professor in Italian philology and linguistics (SSD 10/F-3) at Università di Verona, Department of Cultures and Civilizations, licensed to the role of Full Professor in 2017. His talk will concern Dante's biography. New documents and a new and deeper way of studying Dante's works, their texts and their historical and cultural context carried on by younger scholars is disclosing a different biographical perspective: it is time to write a new life of Dante which could take into account and exploit previous studies which have looked at Dante's life.
