American Politics and Government Summit

February 23-24, 2023
Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina

A conference dedicated to academic conversation and collaboration




Are you a faculty member or graduate student looking for a place that honors academic debate and exchange in the pursuit and apprehension of truth?

Join us for ISI’s American Politics and Government Summit: a conference dedicated to bringing together scholars to participate in dialogue focused on emerging research—rooted in timeless principles—in the fields of politics, philosophy, and economics.

This conference will be held February 23-24, 2023, at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina. Unlike the echo chambers that suppress free inquiry and only permit the ideas of a coterie of experts, Fort Lauderdale will be the setting that inspires academic excellence.

At a time when far too many in academia are scared into silence through the instruments of political correctness and utopian ideology, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute will continue to provide a home for everyone in higher education where honest, intellectual discourse can thrive.

This will be a conference like no other. If you’re a faculty member or graduate student who is committed to the principles of ordered liberty, you owe it to yourself to attend.
