Convocation is a key event during Welcome Days, marking students’ official entrance into Gallatin’s academic community. Built around the discussion of shared texts, Convocation is a moment for all entering first-year Gallatin students to come together with Gallatin faculty and explore interdisciplinary approaches to issues that will be at the forefront of their studies for the next four years. This year, the community will read and discuss Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro’s Booker Prize-nominated 2021 novel.
Featuring a welcome from the Dean, a performance, a faculty panel, an interdisciplinary discussion by a group of continuing students, as well as small discussion groups led by a Gallatin faculty member, Convocation is a chance for the entire class to gather and begin the work of interdisciplinary study.
