Dante’s Sense of Place: Shifting Perspective on Exile and Ecology

November 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr. Daniela Boccassini, Professor of Italian Studies, University of British Columbia

Dante’s relationship to Florence, his native city, underwent deep changes after he was sentenced to exile in perpetuity, in 1302. His Comedìa is a testimony to these changes, and can be understood as the poetic, visionary outcome of Dante’s journey of inner transformation. This talk retraces the process that led Dante radically to reshape his relationship to place, and to achieve a truly universal sense of belonging – one that surprises us in shedding light on what a truly “ecological” relationship to place means and implies.
