He is co-editor of Localism in the Mass Age: A Front Porch Republic Manifesto, The Humane Vision of Wendell Berry, and The Culture of Immodesty in American Life and Politics. He is the co-founder of the web-zine Front Porch Republic.
Dr. Mitchell earned his undergraduate degree in history from Crown College before earning his M.A. in Philosophy from Gonzaga University. He then studied at Georgetown University, graduating with both an M.A. and Ph.D. in Government. In 2008-2009, he was a fellow at the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University.
There are three additional announcements in the Office of Academic Affairs at Patrick Henry College this week:
