"The human mind is hardwired to see patterns and connections where they otherwise would not exist. Faces are one of the images that our mind most automatically construes out of irrelevant and nondescript objects, so much so that two dashes and a curve or a parking meter can easily resemble a smiley face."
Each year, student members of Gallatin’s Albert Gallatin Scholars, Americas Scholars, and Dean’s Honor Society participate in a travel colloquium where they explore a theme related to their destinations. During January Term 2017, AGS explored “Archaeology, Preservation, and National Identity” in Athens, Cyprus, and London. During Spring Break 2017, the Americas Scholars explored “Urban Democracy” in Colombia and Brazil, and DHS explored “Crossroads of History” in France. The Americas Scholars students produced a group “teach-back” event in lieu of submitting individual projects. This collection showcases AGS and DHS students’ artistic and scholarly responses to their experiences.
