Juliana Pilon, Senior Fellow, The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI), will be speaking on “The Legacy of John Quincy Adams and America’s Nationalist Internationalism” at the 2022 Common Sense Society Founders’ Foreign Policy Fellowship in Boston on Thursday, June 9.

The Founders’ Foreign Policy Fellowship is a five-day-long intensive series of seminars that examine the distinctive moral and political principles of U.S. statecraft as understood by its Founders.

Intended for recent college graduates and early-to-mid career professionals with an interest in foreign policy broadly understood, its purpose is to provide participants with an understanding of what the Founding Fathers envisioned as the role of America in the world and to connect that timeless vision to the contemporary national security, commercial, and human rights policy issues we face today.

Convened at historic locations—including Mount Vernon, Monticello, Montpelier, the National Constitution Center, the Alexander Hamilton Custom House, Fraunces Tavern, and the Old South Meeting House—the program provides a total immersion experience, enabling participants to wrestle with the dilemmas of statecraft and to tread the same ground as Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Jay, Hamilton, and Adams.

The Common Sense Society is an international network that promotes liberty, prosperity, and beauty—aspirational ideas that are indispensable to human flourishing and happiness.

Dr. Juliana Geran Pilon is a senior fellow at AHI. The author of eight books, including The Utopian Conceit and the War on Freedom and Why America is Such a Hard Sell: Beyond Pride and Prejudice, she has published over two hundred articles and reviews and makes frequent appearances on radio and television.
