The Dark Academia & Literature Society

🏰 The Dark Academia & Literature Society (DALSOC) is a society based on classical arts. Inspired by the aesthetic of ‘Dark Academia,’ we seek to capture the essence of English academia in a 20th century setting. Taking inspiration from the likes of Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, members can discuss classical literature, poetry, films, and other media in an authentic setting true to the gloomy but inspiring academic culture of Dark Academia. 🏰
