The 1ST International Conference On
Dante and the Arab World: 700 Years Later
23rd – 24th, October 2021
To mark the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death, the Italian Department at Badr University in Cairo and the Italian Cultural Institute in Cairo are organizing a two-day interdisciplinary conference that will take place at the University of Badr in Cairo. Dante’s relationship with the Arab world—both past and present—is a rich one, that has only recently started to attract due attention especially after Asin Palacios in his comparative study illustrates how Dante was influenced by the Eastern sources. By bringing together scholars who are interested in Dante and his works, the conference will focus on Dante’s reception in the Arab World and in world literature, to name but a few salient topics.
1- Dante: the poet and the thinker
2- Dante’s relationship with the Arab cultural heritage
3- Dante’s influences on the Arabic and world literature since his death until now
4- Dante’s image of women and its impact on Arabic and world literature.
5- Translations of Dante’s works into Arabic and other languages.
6- Dante’s contributions to the history and development of the Italian language.
7- Dante’s language
8- Dante and the visual arts
The Conference accept papers in Italian, Arabic, English, or in any other language.
