For those in the D.C. area, I will be speaking at the National Cathedral on Sunday morning at 10:10. The topic is “The State of Political Geography: Where Do We Live?” It’s a beautiful venue, and it would be great to meet FPR readers if you happen to be there.

Mark T. Mitchell teaches political theory at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, VA. He is the author Michael Polanyi: The Art of Knowing and The Politics of Gratitude: Scale, Place, and Community in a Global Age (Potomac Books, 2012). He is co-editor of another book titled, The Humane Vision of Wendell Berry. Currently he is writing a book on private property. In 2008-9, while on sabbatical at Princeton University, he and Jeremy Beer hatched a plan to start a website dedicated to political decentralism, economic localism, and cultural regionalism. A group of like-minded people quickly formed around these ideas, and in March 2009, FPR was launched. Although he was raised in Montana and still occasionally longs for the west, he lives in Virginia with his wife, three sons and one daughter where they are in the process of turning a few acres into a small farm.

  1. Huh. 10am on Sunday morning. I guess they’re not using the Cathedral for anything else at that time.

  2. If I wasn’t lectoring and leading children’s chapel :-/ I would make the trek in. Never been to the National Cathedral and hearing you speak would be the perfect prompting to go!
