CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO 2017 CICERONIAN SOCIETY CONFERENCE

The Ciceronian Society invites submissions for presentation at its annual meeting held at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on March 23rd-25th.

Proposals should consist of a proposed title, all relevant authors, and an abstract of no more than 450 words. Deadline for proposals is December 15th, 2016.

Completed proposals and questions should be sent to ciceroniansociety@gmail.com

This will be an interdisciplinary academic conference in which panelists can present on a variety of topics related to our core themes of tradition, place, and “things divine.” We encourage you to visit our website or to look at ANAMNESIS Journal for more information on the broad sample of the material that interests us.

Past participants have been from the fields of politics, history, law, sociology, literature and languages, humanities and classical studies, philosophy, theology and religion, economics, architecture, art, and more.

With respect to possible thinkers whose work might fit well with the Ciceronian Society’s concerns, they are legion. Here are just a few: Hans-Georg Gadamer, Charles Taylor, Edmund Burke, Stanley Hauerwas, T. S. Eliot, Wendell Berry, Richard Weaver, Rene Girard, G. K. Chesterton, Lord Acton, Alasdair MacIntyre, Christopher Lasch, Leo Strauss, Allen Tate, John Randolph of Roanoke, David Hume, James Fennimore Cooper, Robert Nisbet, Alexis de Tocqueville, Eric Voegelin, John Taylor of Caroline, and Michael Oakeshott. This list is far from exhaustive, and many other fine thinkers from across the ideological spectrum could be included and will be welcomed.
