PAOLO SCARTONI WILL REPRESENT RUTGERS AT IUDC MEDIEVAL CONFERENCE
On April, 27th, Paolo Scartoni will represent Rutgers at the Inter-University Doctoral (IUDC) Medieval Conference held at New York University. Each year, the Conference brings together representatives from each Institution of the Consortium whose research focuses on Medieval studies. Graduate students will have the opportunity to discuss their projects with peers and prestigious members of the faculty from the Institutions adhering to the Consortium. Paolo will present a paper entitled “Songs of Earthly Sweetness: Remembrance in Dante’s Purgatory” which delves into the role of music in Dante’s Comedy and discusses the tension between sacred and secular music in the medieval discourse.
