REPRESENTING DANTE

An Exclusive Online Talk for Members of the Ashmolean


With Professor Gervase Rosser, Professor of Art History, Fellow of St Catherine’s College and Director of the Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities

In this special online talk for Members, Professor Gervase Rosser will ask questions such as; who was Dante? And why is his comedy; the poem in which he describes a vision of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, still necessary reading seven-hundred years after his death?

Professor Rosser will discuss how these questions motivated his curation of Dante: The Invention of Celebrity at the Ashmolean.

The event will take place online on Zoom and a link to join the event will be shared in advance by email.

Booking is essential and tickets are FREE.
