April 1st Streaming Event: Dante in Ireland

April 1, 2009 by Lisa Jansen

Vintage Postcard from IrelandProfessor Emeritus Christopher Kleinhenz recently shared important new research about Dante Alighieri in a videotaped lecture now available online from L&S Learning Support Services. The lecture reveals new details about Dante's sojourn in the
Emerald Isle in the early 14th century and the decisive impact this visit had on world literature.

Kleinhenz’s groundbreaking research on Dante in Ireland was first presented at the 2008 International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan. His presentation was sponsored by Societas Fontibus Historiae Medii Aevi Inveniendis, vulgo dicta, “The Pseudo Society”.

As a charter member of the Society, Kleinhenz is committed to forging and restoring the missing links in medieval studies. His recent research on Dante in Ireland adds to a long list of unexpected discoveries about Dante's life and work.

This lecture was recorded on March 2, 2009, in Madison, Wisconsin, and was sponsored by the Circolo Italiano of the Department of French and Italian.

L&S Learning Support Services provides this lecture online, in its entirety, to highlight not only an exceptional scholar and teacher, but also LSS audio and video streaming services. Faculty and instructional staff in the College of Letters & Science are invited to discuss streaming options with LSS Librarian Mary Prochniak

LSS thanks Professor Kleinhenz for allowing us to stream his lecture.
