Hailed as the best new comedy of the year by critics nationwide, Community, on the NBC network, emerged as a new favorite among television/internet viewers in Fall 2010.

Dante in the Nineteenth Century - 6-8 September 2012

Instiute of English Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London

This conference aims to bring together literary critics, historians, and art historians with scholars from similar disciplines specializing in the nineteenth century. To give focus to what might otherwise be an unwieldy spread, we intend to centre our theme on Florence – for many Victorians the epitome of Italian culture and tradition – both through the eyes of the historians and critics who interpreted it, and also through the eyes of the Anglo-American community that lived there (most notably the Brownings and their circle) and did so much to spread the cult of Dante. we also welcome papers on Blake, Pre-Raphaelites, or even later novelists, such as Mrs Humphry Ward. We also hope to hear papers on Dante's political theory and social ethics.
