Cambridge Vertical Readings in Dante’s Comedy is a four-year long series of workshops and public lectures organized by the Department of Italian at Cambridge in collaboration with the Leeds Centre for Dante Studies. The Italian Studies Program at Notre Dame collaborates with Leeds and Cambridge to coordinate the workshops which take place via teleconference. The lectures explore the “vertical” connections between cantos of the same number across all three canticles.
