Italian Research Seminar: Ph.D. Student Presentations


Location: Hesburgh Library - Special Collections

The Center for Italian studies is pleased to host lectures by two 4th-year Ph.D. Students in Italian Studies:

Mattia Boccuti: "The portrait of Dante as a young poet. Dante and Beatrice from early lyrics to the Vita nova."
Nicola Esposito: "Representing the Bourgeoise in Late Medieval Tuscan Short Story Collections: The Case of Il Pecorone (1378-85)."


The Italian Research Seminar, a core event of the Center for Italian Studies, aims to provide a regular forum for faculty, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and colleagues from other universities to present and discuss their current research. The Seminar is vigorously interdisciplinary, and embraces all areas of Italian literature, language, and culture, as well as perceptions of Italy, its achievements and its peoples in other national and international cultures. The Seminar constitutes an important element in the effort by Notre Dame's Center for Italian Studies to promote the study of Italy and to serve as a strategic point of contact for scholarly exchange.
