Call for Papers: 2023 Interdisciplinary Ciceronian Society Conference
The Ciceronian Society invites proposals of papers, panels, and roundtables for its annual interdisciplinary conference in March 2023 at Belmont Abbey College.
The Ciceronian Society is an international community of Christian scholars and public
intellectuals committed to the examination of three core themes – tradition, place, and
‘things divine’ – and their role in the cultivation of a civilization built upon the principles
common to the traditions of historic Christianity.
Previous conferences have included scholars and practitioners from classics, political science, law, sociology, linguistics, religious studies, architecture, art, philosophy, theology, history, economics, literature, and more!
We’ve seen papers on Wendell Berry, Aquinas, Bob Dylan, Philip Rieff, Hayek, Albert Jay Nock, Thoreau, Aristotle, Cormac McCarthy, the American Founders, Tocqueville, Kant, MacIntyre, Walker Percy, Adam Smith, Raymond Chandler, C.S. Lewis, Edmund Burke, Dante, Lincoln, Leo Strauss, Eric Voegelin, Machiavelli, Nietzsche, Augustine, T.S. Eliot, Mises, Seneca, Shakespeare, Robert Nisbet, Hawthorne, and, of course, Cicero.
Our presenters have covered an enormous range of topics, including constitutionalism, political theology, American political development, friendship, aristocracy, religious liberty, moral theory, agrarianism, Biblical hermeneutics, historiography, Catholic social teaching, rights, conservatism, liberalism, virtue, pedagogy, literary criticism, race, democracy, natural law, hospitality, ideology, conservation, and imagination.
Proposals should be sent by e–mail to email@example.com and consist of:

The deadline for proposals is December 1, 2022.
The Ciceronian Society is an international community of Christian scholars and public intellectuals committed to restoring such a “liturgy” through the examination of three core themes – tradition, place, and ‘things divine’ – and their role in the cultivation of a civilization built upon the principles common to the traditions of historic Christianity.
Over the last decade, the Ciceronian Society has been known for its interdisciplinary community of scholars and intellectuals distinguished by their friendship and willingness to consider ideas, thinkers, and interests neglected by most academic publications and organizations in the humanities, social sciences, and economics.
