Ian Crowe is a Senior Fellow of the Russell Kirk Center and director of the Edmund Burke Society of America. He is currently an associate professor of History at Brewton-Parker College, Mount Vernon, Georgia, and book review editor of the journal Studies in Burke and His Time.

Ian’s research interest is the career and writings of the eighteenth-century Irish politician and thinker Edmund Burke, regarded by many as the father of modern intellectual conservatism, and a figure whose thought was central to the writings of Russell Kirk. He also writes and lectures on the wider history of the development of British and American conservative thought since the French Revolution. His publications include An Imaginative Whig: Reassessing the Life and Thought of Edmund Burke (2005), The Enduring Edmund Burke (1997), Unwelcome Truths (1997), “The Hereditary Peerage: a Voice in and for Rural Britain” in Another Country, and a number of articles and reviews in Modern Age, The Civil War Book Review, The University Bookman, and Conference & Common Room.

Ian studied Modern History at the University of Oxford and earned his Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before moving to Chapel Hill, he and his wife lived in Mecosta, MI where he served as program director for the Kirk Center from 2000 to 2002.
