Undergraduate study

The Centre supports and enriches undergraduate study of Dante, both within Leeds and nationally. Leeds students are able to benefit from the research programme in Dante studies, and are given support in doing so through the Faculty of Arts Students as Scholars programme, which was developed by colleagues in Italian.

The Centre organises annual study days, which are open to students from any UK university, on a topic related to Dante. We also run a study day in Cork, for students across the Republic of Ireland, in collaboration with University College Cork. For more information, see our study days page.

The Leeds Centre for Dante Studies Essay Prize is awarded annually for the best essays by final-year and second-year students. The prize is open to undergraduates at any UK university, and is judged by a panel of academics drawn from across the UK and internationally. For more information, see our Essay Prize page.

In collaboration with Abigail Brundin (University of Cambridge), the Centre ran two national workshops on teaching medieval and early-modern culture in modern languages courses in 2008.
