I've just confirmed that I'll be joining my fellow POI hosts, Karen Stollznow and Robert Price, at the Center for Inquiry in Amherst, New York in late June. The occasion is the Center for Inquiry's summer annual leadership conference, which brings in freethinking student leaders from across the country for workshops, lectures, and to finally get to know each other. This is a blast from the past for me, in many ways, as I worked at the Center for Inquiry to organize student freethinkers back in 1999. (Matt Nisbet worked there too, at the time.) So going back to Amherst ten years later--as a speaker this time--is really something that stirs a bit. Plus, it will be great to finally meet Stollznow and Price. I've been admiring their shows from a distance, and I hope now that we've all gotten our feet wet, we can try to collaborate and cross-pollinate a bit more. More details can be found here....if you're a student freethinker, or are just generally interested, I hope you'll attend. And now the very difficult question becomes...what shall I speak about?
