Danielle Allen wins the Kluge prize

by Henry on June 22, 2020

The New York Times story is here. We ran a Crooked Timber seminar on her book on the American Declaration of Independence. I am delighted to see this prize be awarded not for past achievements, but for someone who is still caught up in doing, thinking and changing the world.

Ditto, and just to add that the decision to reduce the amount of the prize from a million to $500,000 and use the balance for public engagement etc., seems eminently sensible.
