The Dante Project of New York is a multi-year Dantean collaboration between Maria Luisa Ardizzone of New York University and Teodolinda Barolini of Columbia University. In its first phase the Project was called Global Dante Project of New York, since it was devoted to holding yearly conferences on each of Dante’s so-called “minor works”, thus producing a “global” reading of Dante (“lettura globale di Dante”).

Past editions of the Dante Project of New York have been:

1st edition 2015: Monarchia
Dante as Political Theorist: Historicizing Theology and Theologizing Power

2nd edition 2016: Vita Nuova
Vita Nuova: Archeologies of a Text

3rd edition 2017: De Vulgari Eloquentia
De vulgari eloquentia: Dante’s Laboratory of Vernacular Speech

4th edition 2018: Convivio
Convivio: Dante’s Philosophical Treatise

5th edition 2019: Rime
Rime: Dante’s Workshop of the Heart

Three volumes have been published that are related to the work of the Dante Project of New York:

2.      Dante as Political Theorist: Reading Monarchia, ed. Maria Luisa Ardizzone, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2018.
