This year’s online edition of the Dublin Dante Summer School will consist of four days with live lectures, workshops, and events with internationally renowned scholars in the field of Dante studies, international writers, performers and artists, and IIC, TCD, UCD members of staff. Students and scholars from Ireland, the UK, Europe and the US will participate, too. The theme of this year is “Nel ciel che piú de la sua luce prende”: Dante’s Paradiso.
