Education Book Webinar with Margarita Mooney Clayton
February 2, 2:30 pm–3:30 pm
On Thursday, February 2, join the Martin Center as we welcome theology professor and Scala Foundation founder Margarita Mooney Clayton for a webinar on her latest book, The Wounds of Beauty: Seven Dialogues on Art and Education.
Currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Practical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary, Clayton founded Scala Foundation in 2016 and continues to serve as Scala’s Executive Director.
As a Cuban-American woman whose work lies at the intersection of the social sciences with philosophy and theology, Margarita excels at encouraging students, readers, listeners and audiences to think about important questions in culture, education and faith in new and different ways.
Her most recent books with Cluny Media The Wounds of Beauty: Seven Dialogues on Art and Education (2022) and The Love of Learning: Seven Dialogues on the Liberal Arts (2021), grew out of her decades of experience as a teacher and scholar.
In addition to her scholarly books and articles, she has written on culture, faith, and education for publications that reach wide audiences both inside and outside academia such as Comment, Plough Magazine, Real Clear Policy, Scientific American, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Miami Herald, America Magazine, First Things, Hedgehog Review, Public Discourse, Church Life Journal and the National Catholic Register.
Margarita received her B.A. in Psychology from Yale University and her M.A and Ph.D. in Sociology from Princeton University. She has also been on the faculty at Yale University, Princeton University, Pepperdine University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
