    2021 marks the 700th anniversary of Dante's death, but his poem the Divine Comedy could not be more alive. Translations, adaptations, illustrations, and remixes of the poem and its otherworldly landscapes abound, and they take on a special resonance in times of crisis: global pandemic, systemic injustice, climate catastrophe. The digital archive Dante Today seeks to capture and catalog that resonance across various media formats and across global cultures. The archive's editors, Beth Coggeshall and Arielle Saiber, will discuss the archive's history, set-up, and aims in a conversation with Temple University faculty and students.

    The Center for the Humanities at Temple (CHAT) serves as a forum for advanced scholarship in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. It brings together Temple scholars from across the university to share research, discuss works in progress, and engage in lively intellectual exchanges around thematic clusters. CHAT encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration, builds an intellectual community, re-energizes teaching, and strengthens the profile of the humanists within and beyond the university. The center awards grants and fellowships, organizes public lectures, sponsors conferences, operates the biweekly CHAT Fellows Seminar, and hosts both the Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series and a yearly thematic speaker series.

    CHAT is supported by the College of Liberal Arts. Additional major funding is provided by the Klein College of Media and Communication, the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and the Boyer College of Music and Dance.
