A Student Leadership Conference in Houston
You’ve heard the arguments on your campus, on social media, and in the news: The American Founding is nothing to celebrate.
Many modern criticisms of the Founding have turned into full-fledged attacks on America and its history.
And the critiques don’t come only from progressives. Some prominent thinkers on the right are also challenging our understanding of the Founding.
How can you thoughtfully respond to these claims? Can you defend the American Founding without whitewashing the past?
Join like-minded students for an immersive weekend conference exploring the American Founding: its successes and its critics. Over the course of the weekend you will get to learn from some of the most prominent scholars in this field and meet fellow students who may become lifelong friends.
Some of the speakers you will hear from include:
- Patrick Deneen, whose widely discussed book Why Liberalism Failed has sparked vigorous debate on the right about the merits of the Founding
- Robert R. Reilly, whose own book America on Trial is a defense of the Founding against critics like Deneen
This conference will take place in Houston, Texas, April 16–18.
