What is conservatism? And does it have a future in post-Trump America?
These are crucial questions—not just for conservatives but for the country as a whole.
Yes, Donald Trump is no longer president. But that doesn’t mean conservatives can roll back the clock to 1980 or 1964.
So where is conservatism headed? And what ideas should guide conservatives in 2021 and beyond?
On March 6, you can get answers to these and many other questions from five of the most influential voices on the American right.
The Intercollegiate Studies Institute is hosting a major debate on the future of conservatism featuring:
- Charles C. W. Cooke, NationalReview.com editor and author of The Conservatarian Manifesto
- Ross Douthat, New York Times columnist
- William Kristol, director of Defending Democracy Together, founder of the Weekly Standard
- Katherine Mangu-Ward, Reason editor in chief
- Daniel McCarthy, Modern Age editor and Spectator US columnist
This is your chance to hear from prominent figures representing a wide range of perspectives.
And you won’t see them shouting past one another. In this thoughtful discussion moderated by ISI president Johnny Burtka, the panelists will engage one another in substantive discourse on the future of conservatism.
This is the debate conservatism needs now. Forget polls and posturing and political calculations. This is about the principles that should guide conservatives . . .
. . . and about the very nature and definition of conservatism.
This debate will air live on Saturday, March 6, at 7:30 p.m. ET from the Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Virginia. It is part of the Diana Davis Spencer Debate Series presented by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
You can watch live online. But reserve your spot now! Online attendance is capped at 500. Don’t miss out!
