Edmund Burke Award

Statesman, theorist, and philosopher: The work of Edmund Burke (1729-1797) is as pertinent today as it has ever been. Last year, celebrating our thirty-sixth season, The New Criterion honored Victor Davis Hanson with the sixth annual Edmund Burke Award for Service to Culture and Society. This year we are delighted to honor Andrew Roberts with the seventh iteration of the award. Please join us on April 4, 2019 as we celebrate his work at a gala dinner at The Metropolitan Club in New York City.

The New Criterion’s Edmund Burke Award for Service to Culture & Society honors individuals who have made conspicuous contributions to the defense of civilization. Professor Roberts’s continuous, insightful study of the major figures in Western history makes him a worthy recipient of the seventh Edmund Burke Award. Previous honorees have included Philippe de Montebello, Henry Kissinger, Charles Murray, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali; to learn more about the award, please click here.

We are delighted to be able to offer advance ticket sales for $1,000 each. All contributions to the Edmund Burke Award gala directly support the activities of The New Criterion, and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
