Mark and I will both be in South Bend this week, at the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture’s annual conference. This year’s conference, organized by Carter Snead with his usual flair and skill, is Higher Powers. The theme picks up on a remark by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in a memorable address at Harvard 25 years ago, and the conference takes the occasion to reflect on Solzhenitsyn’s life and thought.
Mark will be speaking about “Church and State in a Time of Polarization,” while I will be speaking about “The Higher Purposes of Free Speech.” The full schedule for the conference is here. We hope to see many of our readers and friends!
