2016 Scholars Groups Showcase

2016 Scholars Groups Showcase


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 2016, AGS explored “Globalization and Contemporary Art” in South Africa, the Americas Scholars explored “Labor, Daily Life, and Creative Expression” in Cuba, and DHS explored “Environment, Ecology, and Human Use” in the Galápagos Islands. This collection is a showcase of students’ artistic and scholarly responses to their experiences.
