OUTLINE
¶ In various parts of the world, people are working on the question of Arabic and Judaic influences in and around Dante, and in general in the cultures of the Mediterranean basin.

We are breaking new ground in this important area of Dante studies.

In the eighty-odd years since the publication of the ground-breaking work of Miguel Asín Palacios, isolated individuals have been working with limited resources and within limited disciplines, examining the relevant issues.

Fortunately the climate is now beginning to change – not least in Italy. Arabo-Italian studies, Judeo-Italian studies and trans-Mediterranean cultural studies have become intellectually respectable and are attracting research funding.

We have thus far held two international seminars, to bring together some of the people working in this field. We spent a very successful day in Cambridge (Saturday 28 April 2001) documenting the present state of research, and looking at new research initiatives being developed internationally. That was followed by a two-day event held at the Dopolavoro Ferroviario, Venezia Santa Lucia, on 11th and 12th September 2002. Some of the results of these discussions can be viewed in the Archive section of this website.

Our discussions aim to be broad-ranging. In the longer term we aim to bring in literature, science, music, architecture, medicine, cuisine, graphic art, glassmaking, seafaring, etc. Some of these themes have already been covered in our seminars.

The 2003 conference will be held at Gonville and Caius College (Bateman Auditorium), University of Cambridge, on 10th and 11th September 2003.

Registration for the Conference is open to all. There will be a small charge for registration.

 

The papers will be delivered in either English or Italian. Contributions from the floor are welcome. The papers from the Conference will be published.
