Readers on the east coast may be interested in the Ciceronian Society’s conference being held March 29th to 31st on the campus of the University of Virginia. And apparently for free, too.

The Society, which publishes the new journal Anamnesis and is allied with the Front Porch Republic (from which several of the speakers come), represents a crucial version of American conservatism that raises questions other versions more enthusiastic about the market ignore or forget. The titles of the sessions will give you an idea of what they are about: “Human Scale, Decentralism, and Federalism,” “Place, ‘Things Divine,’ and Tradition in Ancient and Medieval Thought,” “The Relationship of Modern Thought to Tradition and the Divine,” and “Literature, Localism, and the Divine.”
