Professor Carlo Ginzburg (Scuola Normale, Pisa):

Reproduction/Reproduction: An Experiment in Historical Anthropology (on Dante)

Tuesday, February 23, 2021, noon EST (via Zoom)

In this lecture, Professor Ginzburg argues that the double meaning of the word “reproduction”—biological reproduction, on the one hand, replication of objects, on the other—provides a fruitful approach to some of the crucial themes of Dante’s Inferno, as well as to Dante’s reflection on his own work.

Lecture length: approximately 1 hour. To be followed by a question and answer period.
