Undergraduate Study Days

2014 Study Day

We are delight to announce that the Leeds Centre for Dante Studies (LCDS) Undergraduate Study Day will take place at the University of Leeds on Saturday 6th December 2014, between 10.00am and 5.00pm.

These Study Days are designed to help students at all levels to engage with a theme within Dante's text more fully than they would ordinarily be able to do as part of an  undergraduate programme.  The day's events will include two lectures by LCDS staff and plenty of opportunities for discussion and small-group work, relevant to individual students' knowledge of the text.

Lunch is provided, and the whole day is absolutely free to participants from universities in the UK or Republic of Ireland.

If you are interested in attending, please fill in the registration form available here and return it to Federica Pich on F.Pich@leeds.ac.uk as soon as possible, but no later than Monday 24th November. Thanks.

We look forward to meeting you on the day!

What past participants in our Study Days have 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.
