Previous Undergraduate Study Days (2007-10)
The first of our annual study days, on the topic of Dante and Virgil, was held in Leeds in December 2007 and was attended by undergraduate students from thirteen universities across the UK and Ireland. In December 2008, a second study day was held in Leeds on Analysing Dante's Poetry. The day was repeated in March 2009 at University College Cork for students from the Republic of Ireland. The Centre's third study day, on Dante and Politics, was held in Leeds in December 2009 and in Cork in March 2010.
What participants said:
'These events are fantastic for students all over the UK!'
'It was great. Interesting lectures, covering aspects which are not directly covered in undergrad syllabus; useful group discussion afterwards.'
'I really enjoyed the group session; old theories were clarified and new ideas will surely be central to my further work on Dante!'
'The whole day was useful and I would like to say thank you so much for making it very professional and worthwhile.'
'The lectures were fantastic'
'Definitely worthwhile - I found the lectures very useful to set out background information. I learned a lot.'
The Centre is grateful to the Society for Italian Studies for its generous financial support of this event.
