CELEBRATING IMMORTAL LIVES AND NOBLE SOULS
Reading the Other, Understanding Ourselves:
The Dante-Morrison Intellectual Engagement
Thursday, March 25, 2021 @ 9:30 AM (EST)                                     
PLEASE JOIN US!
The 700th anniversary of Dante’s death offers a moment to see his reach as across the globe; across centuries; across races and ethnicities. This Symposium explores the Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison’s literary engagement with “The Supreme Poet” Dante as fundamentally “intellectual,” as a profound mode of reading the past. When we interpret the other, we see more profoundly the underlying patterns and truths of human nature and life, coming to better understand ourselves, our societal tensions, and our hopes for a more beautiful world. Dante’s exploration of Mathematics advanced through the transnational nature of Middle Age Science, connecting fundamental innovations such as the Arab numerals and the zero invented by Indian mathematicians with the rediscovery of the classics via the translation work of an enlightened Islam and the everyday math of merchants and bankers based on Fibonacci’s Abacus. The universal character of Dante’s mathematics demonstrates the power of intellectual engagement produced by an open and interconnected world.
