Abbey Speaker Series: The Future of Conservatism The UNC Program for Public Discourse

    • Politics

This is a recording of our virtual event The Future of Conservatism hosted on March 23, 2021.

Conservatism in America has an uncertain future. On a host of issues  including populism, free trade, and nationalism, conservatives are no longer united. Now, perhaps more than ever, what it means to be a  “conservative,” where conservatism is likely headed, and where, ideally, it should direct itself are open to debate. A panel of political thinkers with different views on conservatism discussed these critical questions.

The panel was composed of: 

Patrick Deneen, PhD, Professor of Political Science and the David A. Potenziani Memorial Chair of Constitutional Studies at the University of Notre Dame

Yuval Levin, PhD the director of Social, Cultural, and Constitutional Studies at the American Enterprise Institute

Daniel McCarthy, the editor of Modern Age: A Conservative Review, published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute

Ashleen Menchaca-Bagnulo, PhD an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Texas State University.

The event was moderated by Jed Atkins, PhD, the director of the Arete Initiative at the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University, where he is the E. Blake Byrne Associate Professor of Classical Studies and Associate Professor of  Political Science.

This Abbey Speaker Series event was co-sponsored by the UNC Program for Public Discourse and the Arete Initiative, part of the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University.
