Modern Age About

You are here

Modern Age has been America’s leading conservative quarterly for more than a half century. The journal has been dedicated to “conserving the best of our civilization” since the great conservative thinker Russell Kirk founded the publication in 1957. Focused on issues both timely and timeless, Modern Age serves up a feast of essays, reviews, and poetry each season.

Modern Age is published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute thanks to the generous contributions of loyal supporters, including:
