The American Election Academic Symposium 2019
Congressional Elections & the Presidency: Politics in 2018

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, Saint Anselm College and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics will host the fourth biannual day-long academic symposium, Congressional Elections & the Presidency: Politics in 2018. This symposium will explore the dynamics of Congress and the presidency, including the midterm 2018 elections, trends at the national and state levels, the media, Supreme Court nominations, and the future of American politics for the 2020 elections.

We anticipate receiving proposals in the areas of campaign and election strategies, foreign and domestic policy and the election, President Trump at the midterms, the role of faith, race, and gender in electoral politics, political party dynamics, and elections at the state level. We also welcome proposals for panels, roundtables, research cafes, and other programming options.

Selected papers presented at the conference will be eligible for subsequent publication. The symposium format is designed to facilitate feedback and discussion.   

Proposals of not more than 250 words must be submitted by January 1, 2019, to ensure full consideration. Please submit proposals to Tauna Sisco.
