The Topic this year is “The Benedict Option: The Problems of Culture in Times of Crisis.” This will be the first serious academic conference dedicated to Rod Dreher’s idea of “the Benedict Option.” Rod will be the keynote speaker. Porchers speaking at the conference include Mark Mitchell, James Matthew Wilson, and yours truly (I’ll be on a panel with Rod, Claes Ryn, and David Walsh).
