2022 Pre-Conference

Wednesday, July 13, 2022 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

When: July 13, 2022, 9 AM - 4 PM

Where: Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, SC

Speakers: Andrew Kern, Dr. Matthew Bianco, Heidi White, Katerina Kern 

Dostoevsky once famously predicted that “beauty will save the world.” Despite having just completed a spring conference on Beauty, four speakers— Heidi White, Katerina Kern, Dr. Matthew Bianco, and CiRCE President Andrew Kern—remain uncertain, feeling the need to contemplate this hopeful claim further. So we’ve given them the pre-conference at the 2022 CiRCE National Conference to contemplate aloud together.

They will each present a short reflection on beauty and seek truth together as they bring each other’s ideas to bear on Dostoevsky’s bold claim. Audience participation will be invited!

Come join us as we seek truth in community and, hopefully, discover whether beauty may indeed “save the world”!

Breakfast and Lunch are included!
