GEM: It is Dante all the time


Always wanted to learn more about Dante? The time is now. Or, actually, the time is also tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, or next month and the weeks after that… Open Yale Courses makes it possible to attend several class lectures whenever, wherever you like. The course on Dante is given by Guiseppe Mazzotta, Sterling Professor of Humanities in Italian at Yale University, who is a specialist in medieval literature but addresses all periods of Italian literature and culture in his writings. Open Yale Courses provides not only videos of Mazzotta’s sessions, but also text transcriptions, visual resources, a syllabus, suggestions for paper topics, and even a midterm and final exam (although I wonder who evaluates these).
