Flagler College Forum on Government and Public Policy will present a lecture delivered by National Review Staff Writer and conservative voice, Nate Hochman on Thursday, Sep. 8, 2022, at 7 p.m. in the Lewis Auditorium. His presentation will explore the question, “What is the Future of Conservatism?”

Hochman graduated from Colorado College in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in political science and journalism. Summer of 2021, Hochman joined the Claremont Institute as a Publius Fellow,  a program which allows “a selective group of promising young conservatives to study the distinctive moral and political principles of the American constitutional order,” according to the Institute’s website.

For the past year, Hochman has worked as a conservative voice in the media with the support of his Robert Novak Journalism Fellowship through The Fund for American Studies, a $35,000 grant awarded to a “rising generation of serious and enterprising journalists,” according to the TFAS website. The vision of TFAS is to “win over each new generation to the ideas of individual liberty, personal responsibility, and economic freedom.”

Along with his work  for the National Review, his writing has appeared in The American Conservative; a political magazine, The Claremont Review of Book; a legal think tank, National Affairs; a domestic policy journal, City Journal; an urban-policy magazine and most notably The New York Times.

His Times guest essay “What Comes After the Religious right?” touches on his main area of interest, the political pursuits of non-religious republicans. He argues that, “the conservative political project is no longer specifically Christian.”

Flagler College Forum on Government and Public Policy has invited nationally recognized journalists and commentators to St. Augustine since 1998 to discuss issues of importance in regional, state, and federal government.
