Haptic Skepticism for Life During a Pandemic

Online Discussion, 20 May 2021, 19:30

Dogmatism and skepticism are not simply opposed. Contemporary expressions of cultural skepticism (e.g. towards vaccines or pandemic regulations) are often entangled with the dogmatic attitudes of those who cling to their right to come into touch with others and the world as they please.

Organized by Rachel Aumiller
An ICI event in cooperation with De Gruyter.

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register on the event page. Public livestream available.

Dante’s Queer Fathers

Online Lecture, 7 Jun 2021, 19:00

In 700 years of intense commentary, readers of the Comedy—at least professional readers—have almost entirely managed to avoid a crucial inquiry: what did Dante know about classical pederasty? What did he think of it? And most poignantly, did he think about Virgil in this context?

Organised by Manuele Gragnolati

A lecture on the occasion of the publication of The Oxford Handbook of Dante in cooperation with Équipe littérature et culture italiennes (Sorbonne Université)

Part of the Lecture Series Decentring Dante.

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Please register on the event page. Public livestream available.

Organized by Ben Nichols

Video-meeting with the possibility of audiovisual participation. Registration opens on 1 June 2021. Public livestream available.
