After an initial weekend of fellowship and discussion focused on an assessment of the current American regime in light of the principle and practice of the Founders’ republic, Fellows will meet throughout the year for ten sessions focusing on central issues and challenges to the American regime, such as identity politics, immigration and demographic manipulation, marriage and family, free speech, education, judicial supremacy, political economy, and the aims of American foreign policy.
The discussions will be led by Hillsdale faculty and distinguished friends. For each session, Fellows will receive core primary documents and key contemporary readings (roughly 25–30 pages of reading) along with discussion questions, and additional suggested readings for further consideration.
All sessions will be private and off-the-record. Regular sessions will occur on rotating weeknights starting with hospitality at 6:30 pm in the library of the Hillsdale College Washington D.C. campus facility.
