Event description
Symposium exploring the massive impact of the Integrated Humanities Program at the University of Kansas in the 70s.

About this Event

In the early 70s, professors John Senior, Frank Nelick and Dennis Quinn formed the immensely influential Integrated Humanities Program (IHP) at the KU. It was responsible for the conversion of scores of young men and women who were introduced by the professors to the Good, the True and the Beautiful in the great books of Western Civilization.

50 years later, the legacy of the IHP quietly and steadily grows with Benedictine Abbeys such as Clearcreek in Oklahoma and schools like Gregory the Great in Pennsylvania and St. Martin's Academy in Kansas.

Why was this program so powerful? Who were these professors? And how is their poetic vision of reality inspiring some of the most important work in the restoration of Christian culture today? This is a story that needs to be told, and we have a great lineup of storytellers to bring it you:

IHP alums Dom Francis Bethel (OSB), Father James Jackson (FSSP), Alan Hicks, Howard Clark, James Leek, Ken and Ron Klassen and others.

Troubadour alums Joseph Pearce, Chris Check and Dale Ahlquist.

President and Headmaster of St. Martin's Academy, Daniel Kerr and Headmaster and Assistant Headmaster of Gregory the Great Academy, Luke Culley and Sean Fitzpatrick.

Join us as we tilt back a glass of scotch while tilting at a few windmills in an atmosphere of Catholic conviviality.
