Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Shameless Self-Promotion

American Politics Conference at Berry College

Next April 15, we're going to have a one day conference on the general topic of the teaching of American politics.  Here are some possible themes:  the relationship between civic education and liberal education, the use of literature and film, the heroic approach (Washington, Lincoln, MLK), the use of our friendly foreign critics (Tocqueville, Chesterton), the uses of teaching technologies, and the place of the Constitution and constitutional law.  We're open to any and all proposals, although we can't guarantee acceptance.  Due to the economic downturn and the instability of the climate, it's highly unlikely that we'll be able to fund travel. But the good news is that there will be no registration fee and we'll feed you while you're here.  It's highly likely that selected presentations will be published in the outstanding journal PERSPECTIVES ON POLITICAL SCIENCE.  Berry College is right next to Rome, GA and about an hour and a half from the Atlanta airport.  Contact me with ideas or if you need further details--plawler@berry.edu
