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 core issues and challenges to the American regime. These core issues and challenges include identity politics, immigration, marriage and family, free speech, the rule of law, 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 key primary documents and contemporary readings (roughly 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 about once a month on weeknights starting with hospitality at 6:30 pm in the library of the Hillsdale College Washington D.C. campus facility.
