The Center for Renaissance Studies Dante Lectures have been held each year since 2001, bringing Dante scholars from throughout the United States and Europe to the Newberry to present cutting-edge research.

From 1983 to 1997, multiple lectures were held each year under the title Lectura Dantis Newberrania. Parts of this series resulted in the two-volume book Lectura Dantis Newberryana, edited by Paolo Cherchi and Antonio C. Mastrobuono (Evanston: Northwestern University Press, 1988).

The Newberry’s Dante Lectures are cosponsored with the Devers Program in Dante Studies, University of Notre Dame, and the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago.
