American Elections Academic Symposium, 2017
Broken: Barriers, Parties, and Conventional Wisdom in 2016
On March 18, 2017, Saint Anselm College will host the third academic symposium in its American Election series. This year's conference, entitled Broken: Barriers, Parties, and the Conventional Wisdom in 2016 will explore the dynamics of the 2016 elections, including trends at the national and state levels, focusing on how this election broke new ground and turned the convention wisdom on its head. The conference will be held at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, which has served as ground zero for New Hampshire's first-in-the nation primary. The symposium format is designed to facilitate feedback and discussion; therefore participants are expected to attend the full day of sessions.
Conference presentations will focus on: 1) What is the conventional wisdom on the topic; and, 2) Did the conventional wisdom hold in 2016.
