    130 interns attend ISI lecture with George Nash at Heritage

    Last night, 130 students and DC area interns attended the ISI summer lecture with historian George Nash at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. Nash spoke on the topic, "The Uneasy Future of American Conservatism." He spoke more about the history and only dived a little bit into the future. But, that was what the enlightening Q&A session was for.

    The Lehrman Auditorium became a "standing room only" situtation by the time the lecture started, on a very rainy night in Washington, D.C. About 15 students gathered outside the room and watched the lecture on a closed-circuit flat screen tv in the lobby of the Heritage Foundation. After the lecture, a reception was held in the Van Endel room and students mingled with each and with ISI staff and alumni.

    Evan Baehr, the founder of the ISI Young Alumni Group in DC gave the introduction for Nash and we advertised a brand new "Conservatism on Tap" venture that the ISI Young Alumni Group is spear-heading in DC. The first will be a talk at the Brickskeller in DC on July 12 and will feature Georgetown professor Patrick Deneen who will give a talk on "Vocation and Modern Society."
