In order to qualify for graduation, all students in NYU’s Gallatin program must complete a final oral examination called the COLLOQUIUM. The colloquium is an intellectual conversation among the student, the student’s adviser, and two other members of the faculty, about a selection of books representing several academic disciplines and historical periods. In preparing for the colloquium, each student creates a BOOK LIST of twenty to twenty-five works, and writes a brief paper, called the RATIONALE, which describes the themes the student plans to discuss in the colloquium. My colloquium is entitled Brooklyn Brews and Oyster Pie: Visions of A Local Food System in the New York Region.
