The American Election Academic Symposium 2021
Election 2020: Politics in a Time of Crisis

 

On Saturday, March 13, 2021, Saint Anselm College and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics will host the fifth biannual day-long academic symposium, Election 2020: Politics in a Time of Crisis. This symposium will explore the dynamics of the 2020 elections, including electoral trends at the national and state levels, as well as challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The conference will feature presentations on a wide range of topics connected to the 2020 elections, including proposals in the areas of campaigns and elections, candidates, foreign and domestic policy and the election, the role of faith, race, and gender in electoral politics, political party dynamics, and elections at the state and local levels. 

The conference will be held virtually, and the registration fee for this year will be waived.  The symposium format is designed to facilitate feedback and discussion.   

Selected papers presented at the conference will be eligible for subsequent publication.

Further details about the conference, including a tentative schedule of events, will be available on the conference website as details are announced.  Please submit any questions about the conference to Tauna Sisco.
