ABOUT US

The William & Katherine Devers Program in Dante Studies at the University of Notre Dame supports rare book acquisitions in the John A. Zahm, C.S.C., Dante Collection, as well as teaching and research about Dante across the Arts & Letters curriculum, in particular in the Medieval and Italian Studies areas, through the sponsorship of conferences, fellowships, lecture series, seminars, and visiting professorships. It also sponsors print and electronic publications of scholarly research through the Devers Series in Dante Studies, published by the University of Notre Dame Press, and as a founding member of the ItalNet Consortium for the creation of scholarly internet resources in the Italian Studies area. The Devers Program also funds an annual program of research and travel grants for faculty and students.

In 1995, William and Katherine Devers of Winnetka, Illinois, established an endowment to initiate and sustain the Devers Program in Dante Studies. In 2001, the Ravarino family of St. Louis, Missouri, endowed the Albert J. Ravarino Family Directorship in Dante and Italian Studies. The Devers and Ravarino families have been generous benefactors of the University of Notre Dame in several areas.
