Read, Reflect, Repeat: On Love

donderdag 17 februari om 16:00 3D@VU

Join our book club! (students only)

In the context of Valentine’s day, we are going to dive into the topic of love together. 

We will read and discuss a number of texts and poems about love (and perhaps about hate as well) from different traditions. Like sizzling Arabic love poems, the search of true love by Plato, and the Christian Song of Songs. Whether it’s about love for someone else or yourself, we will ponder over what love means to us. These texts might shed a different light on love and inspire you in these slightly artificial love-filled days. 

If you don’t believe in love (anymore), you are also welcome and vent your heart about the texts!

How does it work?

Sign up through Eventbrite on this page. We will send you the passages that we will use for the reading club. If that doesn’t work you can email us at

About the reading club

Every month we come together and discuss interesting and in-depth texts and books on current themes. These can be novels, popular scientific texts, or a historical book. In the group we discuss the sometimes obvious or hidden content and meanings of the text. You can attend a book club once, or all. We never make an entire book compulsory, so that in your busy student life you don’t have to read everything in a short time.
