The Heritage Foundation’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for American Studies is honored to announce that Professor Robert P. George will deliver our 2022 Russell Kirk Lecture, for his speech titled, Natural Law and the Recovery of Human Freedom.

The namesake of the lecture—famed scholar Russell Kirk—was a pillar of the conservative movement, bringing like-minded individuals under the very name conservative. Through his well-known books, The Conservative Mind and The Roots of American Order, Kirk provided a philosophical foundation for the conservative movement.

Helping to establish the influential publications, National Review and Modern Age, Kirk strove to consolidate a rich, academic bedrock for conservatives, developing the six canons of conservatism, which defined the tenets of the movement.

Following the path of America’s greatest conservative intellectual, the Russell Kirk Lecture series recognizes those individuals who exemplify Kirk’s commitment to conservative scholarship.

Previous Russell Kirk Lectures have been delivered by Roger Scruton, Shelby Steele, George Nash, Robert Reilly, David Goldman, Roger Kimball, and Gary Saul Morson.
