One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

by Kaylee Guetter, Student Public Relations Writer

Renowned journalist Jay Nordlinger will answer the question “What Is Conservatism?” in his address at Cedarville University on Monday, Feb. 5. Nordlinger will be speaking at 7:30 p.m. in the DeVries Theatre. His lecture, “So, You Call Yourself a ‘Conservative’?” is open to the public and there is no admission fee.

As a senior editor at National Review and an important chronicler of the political scene over the past several decades, Nordlinger is uniquely positioned to answer this question in his own way.  

"This event will give attendees the opportunity to learn from a veteran journalist, a man with strong convictions, and someone who cares deeply about the United States,” said Dr. Mark Caleb Smith, dean of Cedarville University's School of Arts and Humanitiesand the director of the center for political studies. 

Nordlinger’s presentation is another program hosted by Cedarville’s Center for Political Studies. The lecture series, “What Is Conservatism? Exploring the Future of American Politics,” is designed to bring speakers of various perspectives on conservatism in the United States to Cedarville University. Past speakers Matthew Continetti and Steve Forbes have discussed issues on modern conservatism, economics and the historical effects of conservatism.  

Nordlinger is a senior editor at the National Review and a book fellow of the National Review Institute. He has written books such as, “Children of Monsters: An Inquiry into the Sons and Daughters of Dictators” and “Peace, They Say, a History of the Nobel Peace Prize.” He also writes on politics, foreign affairs and human rights, and he hosts two podcasts, “Need to Know” and “Q&A.”
