Dante Conference

Call for papers

Dante’s  Divine Comedy is not only a masterpiece of Italian literature, but also a universal, archetypal tale of the journey of individuation.

A conference to promote a Jungian interpretation of Dante’s symbolic journey  is being organized for 2021, the 7th centenary of Dante’s death. The venue of this meeting will be Ravenna, Italy, the town where the great poet died and where Jung himself had a famous vision.

The event is being organized by the city government of Ravenna along with the local division of the Rotary Club.

The Conference will take place at the Palacongressi di Ravenna in Largo Firenze 1.

Colleagues who have published essays on the symbolism of the Comedy or who have delved into this topic with special interest are encouraged to send their proposals for a presentation to the organizing committee no later than the end of October 2019.

We look forward to receiving your proposals.

Best regards,

Claudio Widmann (CIPA Italy)
