Gender, Race and the Election

Friday, October 9 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Virtual Event

In this conversation, we will explore how varied group expectations shape voting behavior. We shall also explore how disaggregating "group" identity helps us understand voter self-interest. How are "identity politics"--white nationalism, divergent gender politics and Black Lives Matter-- playing a role in this election? 

Co-sponsored by the Departments of African and African American Studies, Political Science and American Culture Studies.
