This year marks the 100th anniversary of Russell Kirk’s birth. Join Kirk biographer Bradley J. Birzer, PhD, for a lecture on how Kirk’s writings can help us understand the state of conservatism in the 21st century.

Kirk’s 1953 book, The Conservative Mind, helped shape the post-WWII conservative movement. He frequently published in two American conservative journals he helped found, National Review and Modern Age, and is considered the “father” of modern traditional conservatism.

Birzer is a professor of history and the Russell Amos Kirk Chair in American Studies at Hillsdale College.

This event is part of the McConnell Center's "American Political Culture" lecture series inspired by Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America.
