Peter Haworth, friend of TAC and a contributor to Front Porch Republic, is starting a group to promote a missing perspective at the American Political Science Association’s annual meeting. Please consider supporting Peter’s efforts by joining APSA and signing his petition. In Peter’s own words, the forum will be called
The Ciceronian Society, for Cicero symbolizes both the republican tradition that opposes centralizing empire and the rhetorical tradition of criticizing abstract rationalism. Such a society will allow us to establish panels at the APSA and, hence, ensure that traditionalist and decentralist perspectives get a sufficient venue at the annual conference—where they currently do not. To make this effort successful, we need to have 50 persons both sign up as members of APSA and be willing to sign the application as members of the Ciceronian Society by the application deadline of August 15th. You could help by joining the Ciceronian Society, which is free of charge, so we can include your name on the application.
If you would like more information, please contact Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org. His phone number is 602-820-5343.
