A New Republic of Letters

Essays Reflecting on American Ideas and Institutions

The New Republic of Letters is a publication featuring the work of Jack Miller Center partner scholars. Intended to be written for non-academic readers, the NROL presents brief essays on American ideas and institutions in order to share the work of our partner faculty with a broader audience.

The most recent issue, featured below, is an essay by JMC fellow Diana Schaub discussing the remarkable rhetoric and political thought expressed in Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address. It was originally published in National Affairs (Spring, 2014). Check back here and follow us on facebook and twitter for future issues.
