Dante – The Christian Literary Imagination Series
27th April: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm BST
The Christian Literary Imagination Series
Over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year, the Future of the Humanities Project is sponsoring a series of webinars on the Christian literary imagination in collaboration with Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford. The ‘Christian Literary Imagination Series’ will explore the role and function of the arts and humanities in the development of the individual and society.
The series features talks by distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic discussing authors or works from Shakespeare to Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Each speaker aims to examine the term ‘Christian imagination’ through a discussion of a particular writer, or an aspect of the term. The hour-long virtual events will be followed by a Q & As chaired by Professor Michael Scott.
In this event of the series Frank Ambrosio, Georgetown University, talks about ‘The Gospel According to Dante’.
Frank Ambrosio is associate professor of philosophy at Georgetown University. After studies in Italian language and literature in Florence, Italy, he completed his doctoral degree at Fordham University. He is the founding director, with Edward Maloney, of the Georgetown University “My Dante Project,” an online platform for personal and collaborative study of Dante’s Commedia. In 2014 he was lead instructor for the launch of an ongoing web-based course on Dante offered by EDX which has been utilized by over 20,000 people worldwide. His most recent book is Dante and Derrida: Face to Face (2007).
This event is free and hosted on Zoom by Georgetown University.
