By Peter Daniel Haworth for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC

Dear FPR Community:

Please save the date for the Ciceronian Society Conference at the University of Virginia, March 17-20th. Our panels will examine issues of tradition and place in the arts, literature, philosophy, and social/political thought. Some FPR authors participating include James Wilson, Jerry Slayer, Peter Haworth, and (maybe) Patrick Deneen.

Major Panels:

Tradition and Limits in the Arts and Literature


The Traditional Critique of Enlightenment Political Thought


Traditional Thought and Modern Thought


Human Scale and The American Experience


Human Scale and Decentralism


Distributistism and Economics


Agrarianism and Place

A significant number of scholars have already expressed interest in presenting papers, but we still have a few openings. Thus, if you are a scholar and interested in presenting a paper and/or serving as a discussant, please contact me (602-820-5343 and [email protected]) as soon as possible.

The conference is also open to all who are interested in attending. There might be a modest fee for non-presenters, but this has not (yet) been determined. Please contact me at [email protected] if you want to attend, and I will keep you abreast of the conference details as they develop.

Best Regards,

Peter Haworth
