2022 Conference

The 2022 FPR conference will be held at Grove City College on September 24th. Our theme will be After Virtual: The Art of Recovering Lost Goods. Chris Arnade will be the keynote speaker. If you’re not familiar with Chris’s work, you can read an excerpt from his book¬†Dignity or check out his Substack. D.L. Mayfield reviewed Dignity for FPR, and Chris contributed to an FPR conversation about the gap between Wall Street and Main Street.

Other panels will include Angel Adams Parham, Jason Peters, and Jeff Polet talking about education; Charlie Cotherman, Carl Trueman, and Father Gregory Hogg talking about the church; Adam Smith and Brian Volck talking about public health; and Rachel Ferguson, Bill Kauffman, and Joe Nail talking about civic life.

Register here to join us for what is sure to be a jovial, inspiring day of lectures, conversations, and good food.

We’re grateful for our conference co-sponsors, Plough, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the Institute for Faith and Freedom, and The American Conservative.
