The mission of the Dante Society of America is to promote the study and appreciation of the time, life, works and cultural legacy of Dante Alighieri. Please follow the navigational links on our website to learn more about our history, activities, and current initiatives.
To commemorate the 700th anniversary of Dante's death in 2021, the Dante Society is collaborating with New York University's Department of Italian Studies and Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò to produce podcast conversations about all 100 cantos of the Divine Comedy. The podcasts will be available as YouTube videos, hosted and archived by NYU and the Dante Society of America. Episodes are released on Mondays and Wednesdays, though not necessarily in numerical order. For more information, including how to record and contribute videos, please visit the Canto per Canto: Conversations with Dante in Our Time project page.
Congratulations to the winners of this year's Dante Prize, Grandgent Award, and Robert M. Durling Prize. Please see the Prizes page for details.
