Vulnerable Masculinities: From Dante's 'Tenzone' with Forese to the Commedia
Sara Diaz, assistant professor of the practice in Italian at Fairfield University, presents the first of two talks this spring in Boston College's annual lectura dantis series, sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages & Literatures and the Nicholas J. Sottile ’41 Fund for Italian Studies.
Diaz earned her Ph.D. in Italian Studies from New York University with a dissertation entitled "'Dietro a lo sposo, sì la sposa piace': Marriage in Dante’s Commedia." Her research focuses on marriage and gender in late medieval and early modern Italian literature. She has published on a number of Italian authors, including Dante and Boccaccio, and recently co-translated Margherita Costa’s 1641 comedy, The Buffoons, for “The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe” series.
