Dante Reading Group
Through this weekly discussion led by Scala’s own alumni, students explore together the complex layers of meaning of great texts and discuss their applications to their own scholarship, teaching and lives.
What is a Reading Group?
Scala reading groups foster in-depth discussion around a central theme or text. Scala participants or alumni lead these groups, with guidance and participation from Scala personnel and faculty advisors. Reading groups have been hosted in Princeton and on other campuses, as well as online. Please contact us if you wish to participate or start a reading group through Scala.
“The Scala events which I attended have exposed me to interesting people whose lives and ideas have been good food for thought as I consider my own life.”
— Mark H., Princeton Theological Seminary graduate
“There is another layer of intentionality added when we meet not in the usual spots on campus, such as the classroom or the dining hall, but in a professor’s home. This intentionality is contagious, for it removes us just far enough from the average environment of our daily interactions at the seminary to a new space that becomes marked for the purpose of our time spent together as a cohort.”
— Kayla P., Princeton Theological Seminary graduate
