Keynote: "Dante's Global Vision: Seeing and Being Seen in the Divine Comedy"
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Peter Kalkavage
Dr. Kalkavage will discuss what a cosmos or ordered whole is for Dante and what we can learn from his inspired vision. He will introduce the audience to Dante's Paradiso in particular (where the wholeness of things is revealed) and will also consider the argument for world peace and world unity in Dante's treatise Monarchia. Dr. Kalkavage is a senior tutor at St. John's College in Annapolis, America's longest running Great Books program and director of the St. John's Chorus.
