2021 ISI Honors Summer Conference

August 01-07, 2021
Williamsburg, Virginia

An immersive weeklong summer conference in historic Williamsburg, Virginia

The ISI Honors Program is the most immersive intellectual experience available to college students.

The program kicks off with an intensive weeklong summer conference. This year’s Honors Program Summer Conference, held in Williamsburg, Virginia, will explore the future of history in an age of revolt.

What is history’s role in our society and our nation? And how can we reinvigorate a sense of historical consciousness and cultural memory when the attacks on America’s past are escalating?

At this conference, ISI’s Honors Scholars will take a deep dive into the conservative intellectual tradition to answer these and other questions.
