ACF PoMoCon #20: Mark Henrie


Here’s the fourth conversation in our series in memory of Peter Lawler–I’m joined today by my friend Mark Henrie, to talk about his work as ISI, where he and Peter educated a part of conservatism’s young academic elites in the liberal arts for the better part of two decades, and also their work together on their wonderful Whit Stillman book!

Erratum: The series of Patristic literature in discussion is not the CUA translation, but the Ancient Writers Series.
