The King's College



What is Interregnum?

One of the most compelling traditions at The King’s College is our annual Interregnum, an all-campus conference that encompasses a year’s worth of theme exploration. Interregnum unites students, faculty, and staff through participation in various events, including a performing arts competition, parliamentary-style debates, and an evening assembly featuring a notable speaker.

Interregnum XV: Order & Chaos

To most of us, order seems inextricable from human well-being. However, chaos often seems to characterize our individual and communal human lives. Let us engage in the project of understanding the purpose and value of order, and discern ways in which we can bring healthy order to our lives, and to our relations with God and other people.


This year’s readings are William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and the biblical text of Ecclesiastes.
